Jesus said "I am the way, the truth and the life; no-one comes to the Father except by me" (John chapter 14 verse 6). Jesus is The Judge!
You can read about the authority of God's Son in John chapter 5 verses 21 to 23: "Just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, in the same way the Son gives life to those He wants to. Neither does the Father Himself judge anyone. He has given His Son the full right to judge, so that all will honour the Son in the same way as they honour the Father. Whoever does not honour the Son does not honour the Father Who sent Him."
and 2 Corinthians chapter 55 verse 10: "For all of us must appear before Christ, to be judged by Him. We will each receive what we deserve, according to everything we have done, good or bad, in our bodily life."
But Jesus is our Saviour as well as our Judge. He has redeemed us (saved us, bought our freedom, been punished in our place) by His precious blood on the cross. We get entry into heaven and fellowship with God the Father because Jesus died for us and was raised from death. "Come in" He will say, "because you have believed in me".
