Our Lord, Savior and King Jesus Christ says: “The time is fulfilled, and the Kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel” (Mark 1:15).
“And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment” (Hebrews 9:27).
“And the times of this ignorance God winked at but now commandeth all men everywhere to repent. Because he hath [APPOINTED A DAY], in which he will [JUDGE THE WORLD] in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained” (Acts 17:30-31).
“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” (2 Corinthians 5:10).
JESUS explains the events of the Day of Judgment, saying:
“When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory; and before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats; and he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, ‘Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world’” (Matthew 25:31–34).
“Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the Devil and his angels. And these shall go away into everlasting punishment” (Matthew 25:41, 46).
Let us therefore be reminded that Paul the apostle said to: “Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling that ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the [DAY OF CHRIST]” (Philippians 2:12, 1:10).
