6) The Judgment

The Bible has much to tell us about the judgment of God in our lives before the end-times and its impact upon eternity. All heaven is interested in how God will judge mankind. The destiny of the entire human race will be settled forever. The honor of God’s throne is at stake.

While the Bible refers to judgments specific for the unsaved and the saved, this study is meant to build an awareness that “it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment” (Hebrews 9:27).
