At the time of the Great White Throne Judgment, God will assemble before Him all the unsaved, “small and great,” regardless of what their status on earth might have been. The wicked dead are raised; death holding the body and Hades the soul, surrender their prisoners. In the agony and shame of their sins, they stand before a Throne which is described as “great” and “white.” Each sinner is face to face with God alone, and is doomed because he did not accept God’s salvation. The doom of the unsaved is a “lake of fire,” the place of isolation from God for all evil and sinners.
