Wilson's Dictionary of Bible Types
Colossians 1:22 (a) This interesting word means that the Christian will not be challenged at the gate of Heaven. He will not need a password to enter. He will not be stopped and examined to see if he is fit to enter. Those who enter a lodge hall are challenged at the door, and must give the sign required. Those who enter the army camp are challenged at the gate. This word "unblameable" refers to that form of procedure. It tells us that the Saviour, who is the Lord of glory, does such a complete work in the soul of the child of GOD, that he enters immediately into the presence of GOD when his spirit leaves the body, and there is no challenge. (See also1Th 3:13).
