Default judgement day

John 5:28 "Do not be amazed at this, for a time is coming when all who are in their graves will hear his voice 29 and come out - those who have done good will rise to live, and those who have done evil will rise to be condemned.

It sounds to me like Jesus is saying that everyone who is dead will be brought back to life at the same time and then everyone will be judged at the same time. Is this not what he means?

Not at all. Revelation show two different judgements. The Judgement seat of Chrsit for the believer and the Great White Throne Judgement for those who refused Christ. This verse is speaking of the End of Days. John wrote the gospel of John and revelation at the same time on the Island of Patmos so his gospel emphasizes this sort of thing more

Yes probably. It is my opinion that everyone is Judged on earth during the Millenial Reign after the return of Christ. When you die, you slip outside of time because you go into the spiritual realm, so appearing at judgement would seem immediate although on earth perhaps trillions of years have past.

Frankly, its time travel. You die at one point in Chronology, you go outside of time, you re-enter for Judgement at a furture point. To you it seems instantaneous...but in essence we all get judged at the same point in chronology therefore, we all arrive at the same time...its more about perception and less about reality.

Of course the Bible doesnt actually say the above, but its a neat and very viable theory.
