The Great White Throne Judgment of Revelation 20 and the Judgment of the Nations of Matthew 25. Are they the same?

Dear reader, I prepared the first version of this commentary in Spanish, beginning in 1995, for university-level classes taught in the School of Advanced Bible Studies, in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and have continued work on it ever since. Having previously translated to English studies on the First Beast and the Seventh King-Kingdom-Beast as representative of the content, my goal now is to translate, Lord willing, the rest of the commentary and will be adding Chapters, Acts, Scenarios, Scenes, Parts, etc. as that is accomplished. The Commentary is composed of 12 Chapters. Including more than 100 slides, the whole is equivalent to about 1,300 letter-size pages.

“And so we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed
as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star
rises in your hearts; knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture
is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came
by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they
were moved 
by the Holy Spirit.”
 
2 Peter 1:19-21

But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief.”
1 Thessalonians 5:1-4
