Are You Ready?

Are You Ready for Judgment Day?

The Bible says that everyone will stand before God to give an account of every word, thought, & action. Will you be innocent or guilty on Judgment Day?

 The Bible says, "For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul?" "It is appointed for man to die once and after that comes judgment.” Every thought, word, deed, and motive will be judged by the sinless standard of Christ. Haven’t murdered? God sees hatred as murder. Never robbed a bank? The sin of stealing isn’t based on the value of what is taken. Every sin, even if common or seemingly small (like lying) is a huge offense against holy God. When it's your turn for judgment, will God find you innocent or guilty? "For all have sinned". God, the righteous and perfect Judge can’t overlook sin. All of us rightfully deserve to suffer God’s wrath in Hell forever. "For the wages of sin is death but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus." Jesus never once sinned yet was willingly punished for sinners. He was brutally beaten and poured out His blood as He died on the cross, bearing God’s wrath for sin. "For our sake He made Him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God." Jesus was buried and on the third day was raised from the dead, proving the demands of justice for man’s disobedience have been met and God’s wrath appeased for all who will repent and believe the gospel. Agree with God that you stand condemned in sin, totally helpless to save yourself. Trust in Christ alone, not good deeds.  Come to Christ; plead for His mercy; ask Him to save you. "Riches do not profit in the day of wrath, but righteousness delivers from death." Only Christ can grant full pardon, declare you righteous, and reconcile you to God. "There is no other God besides Me, a righteous God and Savior; there is none except Me. Turn to Me and be saved, all the ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is no other." "The kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel."
