The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it? I the LORD search the heart and examine the mind, to reward a man according to his conduct, according to what his deeds deserve.- Jeremiah 17:9-10God judges us according to the things we have done. Meaning, God judges us by our works. This is attested to by Jesus, Paul, John, and Peter. We are not saved by our works (see 1 Corinthians 3.12-15, below), but God does judge us based on our works. (Take note of the apostles' consistent comment that God judges "impartially" - meaning, God's judgment will be absolutely just and righteous, and nothing will "slide".)

Matthew 16.27-28: "For the Son of Man is going to come with his angels in the glory of his Father, and then he will repay each person according to what he has done."

Matthew 25.31-46

Romans 2.5-11: But because of your hard and impenitent heart you are storing up wrath for yourself on the day of wrath when God's righteous judgment will be revealed. He will render to each one according to his works: to those who by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and immortality, he will give eternal life; but for those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, there will be wrath and fury. There will be tribulation and distress for every human being who does evil, the Jew first and also the Greek, but glory and honor and peace for everyone who does good, the Jew first and also the Greek. There will be tribulation and distress for every human being who does evil, the Jew first and also the Greek, but glory and honor and peace for everyone who does good, the Jew first and also the Greek. For God shows no partiality.

1 Corinthians 3.12-15: Now if anyone builds on the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw - each one's work will become manifest, for the Day will disclose it, because it will be revealed by fire, and the fire will test what sort of work each one has done. If the work that anyone has built on the foundation survives, he will receive a reward. If anyone's work is burned up, he will suffer loss, though he himself will be saved, but only as through fire.

2 Corinthians 5.10: For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil.

Colossians 3.23-25: Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ. For the wrongdoer will be paid back for the wrong he has done, and there is no partiality.

2 Timothy 4.14: ... the Lord will repay him according to his deeds.

1 Peter 1.17: And if you call on him as Father who judges impartially according to each one's deeds...

2 Peter 3.10: ... and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed.

Revelation 2.23: "And all the churches will know that I am he who searches mind and heart, and I will give to each of you according to your works." [Note that this verse parallels to Jeremiah 17.9-10, as you posted in the OP.]

Revelation 11.18: "The nations raged, but your wrath came, and the time for the dead to be judged, and for rewarding your servants, the prophets and saints, and those who fear your name, both small and great, and for destroying the destroyers of the earth."

Revelation 20.11-15: Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. From his presence earth and sky fled away, and no place was found for them. And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Then another book was opened, which is the book of life. And the dead were judged by what was written in the books, according to what they had done. And the sea gave up the dead who were in it, Death and Hades gave up the dead who were in them, and they were judged, each one of them, according to what they had done. Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire. And if anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.

Revelation 22.12: "Behold, I am coming soon, bringing my recompense with me, to repay everyone for what he has done."

Jeremiah 17:9-10


Greetings.

Jeremiah 17:9 means that the heart of a man is the source of his
corruption (Matthew 15:19). "Who can know it?" (Jeremiah 17:9b)
means that a man can deceive himself into thinking that his
corruption is the right way to go (Proverbs 14:12). So any man is a
fool to trust his own heart (Proverbs 28:26). Jeremiah 17:10 is what
Jesus says to the church (Revelation 2:23b).

Psalms 33:12 means that God chooses which people will be saved
(Ephesians 1:4-5) and live with him forever in blessedness
(Revelation 21:4).

We are not saved by our works


Greetings.

Christians are not initially saved by their prior works (Ephesians 2:8-9,
Titus 3:5). But they are ultimately saved by their works subsequent
to becoming Christians (Romans 2:6-8, James 2:24).

Matthew 16.27-28


Some Christians will lose their salvation because of evil things they
have done without repentance (Matthew 24:48-51).

Matthew 25.31-46


The sheep/goat judgment (Matthew 25:32-46) is the great white
throne judgment (Revelation 20:11-15), which won't happen until
after the millennium and the Gog/Magog event (Revelation 20:4-15,
Ezekiel chapters 38-39).

Romans 2.5-11


Romans 2:6-8 shows that Christians will receive ultimate salvation
based on their obedience (Hebrews 5:9, Matthew 7:21).



markedward posted in message #2 of this thread:

1 Corinthians 3.12-15


1 Corinthians 3:6-15 refers only to the work of church planting, not
to all works. Some Christians will lose their salvation because of a
lack of works (Matthew 25:26,30, John 15:2a).

2 Corinthians 5.10


The judgment of 2 Corinthians 5:10 should inspire terror in Christians
(2 Corinthians 5:11), because they can lose their salvation due to
unrepentant sin (Hebrews 10:26-29).

Colossians 3.23-25 ...

2 Timothy 4.14 ...

1 Peter 1.17


Colossians 3:25, 2 Timothy 4:14b, and 1 Peter 1:17 show that even
Christians will be punished for unrepentant sin. They will even lose
their salvation for it (Romans 8:13a. Galatians 5:19-21).

2 Peter 3.10


"The earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up"
(2 Peter 3:10b). This refers to what will happen at the great white
throne judgment (Revelation 20:11).
