NOTE: At the beginning of this judgment there will be a large fire started through which all your works will pass. This fire will consume all that you have accomplished in your entire lifetime with the exception of what you did for the Glory of Christ. This will not only be a consuming fire but a refining fire. Your works for Christ will come as gold, silver and precious stones. Notice that the man doesn’t burn; his works burn. The works will be tried to see WHAT SORT IT IS. The Lord is interested in QUALITY, what sort it is. What is the real motive for serving Christ.
II Corinthians 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.

Romans 14:10-12 But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.

Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days. Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth. Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter. Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you.
ANSWER: No Christian will escape the Judgment seat of Christ. Regardless of who a person is or what position he holds in this life, we will all die (or be raptured) and stand before God and be judged. This judgment will take place immediately after the rapture of the Church, just after we get our new bodies.
A saved person will face Christ at the Judgment Seat Of Christ.
