Jesus is the Judge

All who reject Jesus as their Lord and Savior will one day face Him as their Judge. "God is now declaring to men that all everywhere should repent, because He has fixed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness through a Man whom He has appointed, having furnished proof to all men by raising Him from the dead" (Acts 17:30-31).
2 Thessalonians 1:7-9 says, "The Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels in flaming fire, dealing out retribution to those who do not know God and to those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. And these will pay the penalty of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power."
The Bible also says, "There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus" (Romans 8:1). Dear friend are you in Christ Jesus? Have you been truly born again? Have you repented of your sin? Only you know the answer to these questions. May I say, if you have not received Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you face an eternity separated from God. In a place the Bible says, "was prepared for the devil and his angels." A place described as a lake of everlasting fire, "where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth."
Note! God's perfect Word concerning salvation; "that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation....For whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved." (Romans 10:9-10,13) You think about that.
