If everyone knew there is a judgment would the world act differently? The answer is of course it would not, and as we look around today we can clearly see with all the riots, murders and rapes God is not in the forefront of the minds of some people. Whether people realize it or not there is a judgment in the earth and one day a final judgment that awaits every soul that has ever lived! (2 Corinthians 5:10,11) 10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad. 11 Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are made manifest unto God; and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences.
With so much happening in the world today God is not absent in viewing man‘s activities, and sadly it is not hard to see scripture come to pass as it says there are some who do not choose to have God in all their thought’s ( Psalm 10:1-8) 1 Why standest thou afar off, O LORD? why hidest thou thyself in times of trouble? 2 The wicked in his pride doth persecute the poor: let them be taken in the devices that they have imagined. 3 For the wicked boasteth of his heart’s desire, and blesseth the covetous, whom the LORD abhorreth. 4 The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts. 5 His ways are always grievous; thy judgments are far above out of his sight: as for all his enemies, he puffeth at them. 6 He hath said in his heart, I shall not be moved: for I shall never be in adversity. 7 His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and fraud: under his tongue is mischief and vanity. 8 He sitteth in the lurking places of the villages: in the secret places doth he murder the innocent: his eyes are privily set against the poor.
Scripture does not only teach us there is a judgment, but it even gives us a list of what makes us worthy for such a judgment, may we learn how to conduct our lives to be pleasing in His sight so we do not suffer the consequences. God sends no one to hell, it is our choices that sends us there and with a list of what not to do why would anyone forfeit heaven? (Romans 1:24-32).
When the book of life is opened at the Great White Throne Judgment it will be too late for a life change of any kind. The final rest of all soul’s will either spend eternity in the lake of fire or with God in eternal bliss……. It truly is our choice! (Revelation 20:11-15)
Judgment Before the Great White Throne
11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, wh e books, according to their works. 13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. 14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
