What’s Going to Happen to Me?

Hi S​____​,

Christ knows those who are His:

2Ti 2:19 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.

We can all judge a tree by its fruits, and indeed we ought to do so or we will be led astray by false prophets:

Mat 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Mat 7:16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
Mat 7:17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
Mat 7:18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
Mat 7:19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
Mat 7:20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

Judging a false prophet by his fruits does not give us the right to say the Lord will never open that man’s eyes to see the error of his ways and repent. So it is best to let the Lord decide who He will strike down and call into His service as He did the blasphemous Saul of Tarsus who became the apostle Paul.

You ask:

As I just said, I have no power to tell you what will become of you in this life, but I can tell you that all in Adam will be saved, and I can tell you what is meant by “then cometh the end”:

1Co 15:22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
1Co 15:23 But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming.
1Co 15:24 Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.
1Co 15:25 For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.
1Co 15:26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.

We are told that “death and hell are cast into the lake of fire”:

Rev 20:11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
Rev 20:12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
Rev 20:13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
Rev 20:14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
Rev 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

The lake of fire is called “a great white throne… judgment”, and this is what happens “when we are judged”:

1Co 11:32 But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.

The ‘condemnation with the world’ is to be condemned to the great white throne judgment which follows the thousand​-​year reign. So that ‘condemnation​’​ is just to a later, less desireable ‘judgment’. ​T​he white throne judgment is still a judgment of the Lord​,​ and when the Lord judges this is what happens:

Isa 26:8 Yea, in the way of thy judgments, O LORD, have we waited for thee; the desire of our soul is to thy name, and to the remembrance of thee.
Isa 26:9 With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee early: for when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.

So while I cannot tell you what will become of you in this age, I can tell you that “the end” means the great white throne judgment which follows the thousand-year reign of Christ, and I can assure you that all who are in that judgment will “learn righteousness” and be given life.
