The Bible holds a truth that is sure to be experienced by all who had lived before us, a truth for us all now and a truth for all who will live after us: - "...[mankind] is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment." (Hebrews 9:27) It is imperative, all of us must understand, now we have the privilege of grace, once we enter the river of death, then the judgment. There is going to be an accounting for every careless word spoken, every action lived out, everything done for or against Jesus Christ. Most everything in this world reflects the fact of a judgment. It is base ball season, it is the last game of the World Series, the score is tied, it is the bottom of the ninth, the bases are loaded, it is a full count, three balls - two strikes. The pitcher throws the ball - the batter hits the ball to center field. The man on third base heads for home plate, the man in center field throws towards home - it is going to be close - the third base runner slides into home, the catcher makes the catch and moves for the tag out. Then the judgment, the crowd waits for the umpire's call, safe or out. There is going the be an eternal call made by God, He never miss's a call, are you safe from the judgment to come, do you know Christ's as Savior and Lord?
