The Possessor of the Great White Throne is the Lord God Almighty, who will judge His creatures. The Power of His Throne is great – no one will dare to challenge or even come close to having the strength to challenge His right to judge. His Throne is Pure. Judgment against sinners shall be passed before this completely white and holy throne.

The Great White Throne shows God’s righteousness. Those who stand before this Throne will get a fair hearing. The evidence will be incontrovertible.

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.

Revelation 20:12 (emphasis added)

The evidence against the unconverted will be in these books. If you die having not been born again in Christ Jesus, then you will be there when these books are opened, and a record of everything you have ever done and everything you have ever said will be in one of those books. Another one of the books will be the Bible. Have you ever thought about the things you have done and said – the things you do and say – and then laid them alongside the commands and precepts of the Bible? The objection that you don’t understand everything in the Bible will not be an excuse. The fact is, if you have bothered to read it, then you understand some very important things already. Mark Twain once said that it was not the things he didn’t understand in the Bible that scared him. It was the things he did understand. The idea that your actions and your words have been – and are being – recorded in God’s book is bad enough. But it goes even further. Every thought – every secret thought of your heart – is recorded. They are all written down in the King’s book. You will not be able to argue that it is unfair for God to judge you by your actions, and to plead that He should be taking into account the attitude of your heart. For your heart will condemn you even more than your words and actions. Can you imagine every thought you’ve ever had being played out on a public viewing screen? You will want to do anything to keep this book from being opened! But it will be opened.

There is only one thing that can blot out the record of your sins from that book. It is the precious blood of Jesus Christ. Have you called upon Him to save you? If you are reading this, it is not yet too late.
