When does the Bema judgment seat of Christ for rewards occur?? Before the 1000 yrs or after it?

Another related question: are rewards for the 1000 yr reign or for heaven?

The judgment seat of Christ is in operation today as Jesus walks among the candlesticks and has His angel (John) record what appears of the church through Revelation Chapters Two & Three. Some are told to repent and others to remain faithful unto death for instance in Rev 2:10.
I don't know that I've read of rewards for our time in heaven. I think becoming that blessed portion with Jesus as His bride will endure. Can we have a lesser place? Yes.

Rom 14:10 But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.

2 Co 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ (this is not the great white throne judgment); that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.

Will we appear before some later chastening or other reprehend for the things done in our spiritual walk? NO! Rev 22:12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me , to give every man according as his work shall be.

1 Pet 4:17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God . .

There is promised reward also such as with Philadelphia in Rev 3:10. Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

Now compare that with the church of Thyatira in Rev 2:22. Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.

There are three major divisions of the Church in reward, and that will indeed be according to their spiritual walk.
In Rev 4:4 and Rev 4:6 are the saints John first sees in heaven around bout and in the midst of Jesus' throne.
The next are those of the Great Multitude that come out of great tribulation according to Rev 7:9 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
The third are the 144,000 of Rev 14:1, and redeemed from the earth in Rev 14:3.
