The Judgment Day is Sure to Come
By Chris Nwoke
The judgment day is sure to come and cannot be ignored. We cannot be too busy to prepare for it, because it is an appointment that must be kept. Whether we prepare for it or not, it is sure to come. It is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment. So, Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation (Hebrews 9:27-28). That great and awful day of the Lord is fast approaching. I hope you have considered it. If not, you should. It is important to prepare because that day of the Lord is sure to come.
Because of sin and wickedness, the wrath of God will come upon men. Truly and sadly, people may be too busy to ponder this truth. The Lord declared, I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the Lord: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung. Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the Lord’s wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land (Zephaniah 1: 17-18).
It is important to turn from sin and hear the call of God through Jesus Christ today, because the day of the Lord will come when one is not expecting it. If you’re not ready, there would not be enough time to be ready. The Scripture says, the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness (II Peter 3: 10-11).
If your relationship with God is in doubt, then erase the uncertainty today. Make peace with God without delay. Seek him today with all your heart that you may find him. Repent of your sins and put your trust in Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God. Jesus Christ is the sacrifice for the sin of the world. Without faith in Jesus Christ, there will be no salvation for anyone against that day. It is written, gather yourselves together, yea, gather together, O nation not desired; Before the decree bring forth, before the day pass as the chaff, before the fierce anger of the Lord come upon you, before the day of the Lord’s anger come upon you. Seek ye the Lord, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the Lord’s anger (Zephaniah 2: 1-3).
Every man’s work is open before the Lord. There is nothing covered that shall not be revealed and hid that shall not be known. It is essential to know and do the will of God Almighty. 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 (II Corinthians 5: 10). May God richly bless you.
