    Dear Lord, open the eyes of the hearts of those who are not resting SOLELY on the finished work of Your beloved Son.
    The first line states it all, just another works based vanilla twist café blend false gospel----->I disagree. Our obedience does not earn salvation, but it is required in order to receive it- for God only gives it to the obedient.

    The Great White Throne Judgment is for those who are unsaved, and is also called "the Resurrection of Damnation". So this is the second resurrection. The ones who are there are because they did not believe the Gospel and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ (Mark 16:15,16). And that is why their names are not found in the Lamb's Book of Life. But the Bible also says that they are judged "according to their works", which means that there will be degrees of punishment in Hell. The punishment of the Devil and his angels will be most severe, after that the monsters who walked the earth as humans, and after that other evildoers and sinners. So in effect both unbelief and evil works are taken into account.

    If Hell & Death are cast into lake of fire and are the second death, how are there different "degrees" of hell?

    Rev 21.14
    14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
