When are the Righteous Rewarded?


Jesus encouraged us to feed the poor: “And thou shalt be blessed; for they cannot recompense [reward] thee: for thou shalt be recompensed [rewarded] at the resurrection of the just” (Luke 14:14). Jesus said that the righteous will be rewarded at “the resurrection of the just.” He also explained, “For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works” (Matthew 16:27). In the last chapter in the Bible Jesus said, “And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be” (Revelation 22:12).

The faithful will receive their reward when Jesus returns to resurrect them. They will not receive their reward before they are resurrected at the second coming of Christ.

Wait a minute! What about all the faithful who have died in the past? Aren’t they already enjoying the reward of heaven?
