So here I am again, well over a year later after forgetting I even had this thing.
I recently joined a men's bible study and we have been meeting on Tuesday nights every other week. We were talking about Heaven and Hell and just how incredibly real they both are and what believer's and non-believer's have to look forward to. One verse really stuck out to me like it never had before. The verse is Revelation 20: 13 and says, "The sea gave up its dead, and death and the grave gave up their dead. And all were judged according to their deeds."
You see, everyone will see what Heaven is like. On Judgment Day, believers and non-believers alike will "bow their heads in worship of Him alone". For a brief moment in time, those who have been cast to Hell for an eternity will get a brief reprieve only to face their judgment for deeds done and not done and be cast into the pits of Hell forever. For that brief period of time, and who really knows how long it will be, the Lost will get to see what "could have been" while the Christians await their turn at judgment as well.
It's not going to be easy for the lost person to recognize the reality of this verse, but truth be known, this should create a great urgency for Christians to reach those who might be cast into the pits for an eternity.
I would appreciate any feedback or comments that you may have on this verse or topic.
Peace out peeps!
