Gary, have been told by a pastor that Jesus will judge the "Christians" and God, the Father, will judge those others left after the rapture. (Other than the "Christians")   Also, have been told by this same pastor that if one has been baptised in the Spirit by Jesus that they will speak in tongues.  That this is the same: Speaking in tongues and baptism in the Spirit.  Please help me.   I have believed that one can be baptised in the Spirit by Jesus and rec. other 'gifts' other than speaking in 'tongues'.  Also, have believed that Jesus (as God) will judge all, period.    

Good questions...

  Jesus will "judge" Christians, but no wrath, only for rewards.   

2 Corinthians 5:10 says, For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad   

I was taught in the Baptist church that God the Father will judge all the sinners at the great white throne judgment.  

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.  

And Him who sat on it: Who is this? The Bible tells us that the Judge is Jesus (John 5:22-27); or more likely, the fullness of the Triune God.

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.  

This is not a trial. There will be no defense, nor arguing, for God is truth and all will be revealed. This is the sentencing of God. We aretold not to judge, which refers to the sentencing of someone "go to hell?" God is the final judge and Jesus shall be the judge of all men.  

John 5:22  For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:
John 5:23  That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.

Never are the three separated. Maybe for that short time on the cross. Thats it. They all are together. At judgment, Jesus is the voice and face of God.

Baptism in the Holy Ghost...Pentecostals insist on tongues. Those who do not go to all the other churches.  :>)  Read my web site...Baptism of the Holy spirit
