The word BEMA is not found in our English bibles. It is found in the Greek text and it is a word that refers to the judgment seat of Christ, the BEMA seat. This is not the same as the Great White Throne judgment. This is the judgment seat of Christ.

The phrase "Judgment seat of Christ" is found in a few places in the NT. 2 Corinthians 5:10 is one place. All believers will appear before the BEMA seat of Christ.

The Bema seat was the platform that the Roman officials would sit on at the Coliseum games as they were meting out judgment. But it's more known for the stand which you come to at the Olympic Games after you run your race to get your prize.

If you watch the Olympics, the first, second, and third-place athletes, get up on this stand and they give them a medal. And they stand up there and play the anthem of the person that came in first place.

That is the same as the Bema seat or judgment seat of Christ. It's not the judgment of heaven and hell. We are already assured of heaven in Christ. But we will be judged and that judgment is described for us in 1 Corinthians Chapter 3.

What is 'BEAMA'? And where is it in the Bible? Thanks!
