WORD OF TRUTH: There are many doctrines and beliefs that after we die we either go forever to hell to be tormented or to heaven to serve God. This is not supported by the word of God because there will be first a Day of Judgment.
The word of God is very clear when it says: “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment” (Hebrews 9:27).
In John’s vision of the end of time, the Day of Judgment, revealed the angel of God he wrote:
“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.
And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. 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.
And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire” (Revelation 20:11-15).
Jesus is very clear when he says: “I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death” (Revelation 1:18). “And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be” (Revelation 22:12)
