EDITOR’S NOTE:

Typing this post while listening to the Dies Irae from Verdi’s Requiem is most appropriate.  It is what I am doing.  It is also ironic, given my great-grandfather’s negative attitude regarding anything related to Roman Catholicism.

Rev. 20, 12

1.  The propriety of such a day is seen from the fact that man does not always get justice from government.  Providence would suggest it too to even up matters that appear unequal here.

2.  Its certainty is emphatic.  (Heb. 9, 27 & Acts 17, 31)

3.  Who is to preside–Jesus Christ.  (Rom. 14, 10; 2 Cor. 5, 10)

4.  Time–no man knows but to many will be unexpected.

5.  Who will be there?  All men of every age, you and I must appear.  ‘Twere vain to call for rocks & mountains to fall on us and hide us from His presence.

6.  Strict account shall be taken of every deed, thought and word.  There shall be revealed characters, consciences and secrets as they are.

7.  A line is drawn separating the evil from the good, husband and wife, parent and child, are forever separated.  God shall banish the rejected ones, but welcome his own to Himself to enjoy the bliss of heaven.

Are you ready to meet Him?

GEORGE WASHINGTON BARRETT
