May 22, 2012
          “What is your life?  What does it consist of?  Moments of time march one by one until old age comes which then stops at the door of death.  What will you be holding in your arms as you stand waiting at death’s door?  Will your hands be perfumed with the fragrance of good works?  Will your mind be pure, separated from worldly desires?  Will your heart be dilated with love for the God you will be meeting face to face?  How many souls will be fearful and trembling on that day?  What will they say in their defense?  Those that have trodden on the poor, sinned willfully, despised God’s commandments, ill-treated their neighbor – how will they encounter God with the boldness backed by a life of holiness?

          God is a just judge.  He has placed within man’s hearts His laws.  There will be no excuse on that day.  Man’s soul will accuse him.  He will not need to hear words of judgment.  To stay in contact with heaven every day of your life is the greatest secret of the holy boldness you will need on that fateful day of reckoning.  God gives man every chance possible to follow the inner yearning for holiness that He has so carefully placed in the inner sanctuary of man’s being.  There will be no excuses on the day of judgment.

          “Behold, I show you a mystery.  We shall not all sleep but shall be changed, in the twinkling of an eye.”  This judgment will be quick and powerful.  In the state you arrive at death’s door – this is the measuring stick of justice before God’s holiness.

          Look up to Me.  Ask Me to show you the state of your soul now so that what is evil may be turned into good before that final day where there will be no remedy.  I offer you life and death, children.  “Choose ye this day whom ye will serve.”
Jesus, Trial Judge
