20 Bible Verses About Judgement Day
Today we will be dealing with 20 Bible verses about judgment day. The day of judgment is a day of decision-making. As long as we live on earth, everything we do in life matters. That judgment day is to decide whether we are going to heaven or hell. According to the teachings of the scripture, the heaven is a place prepared by Christ Jesus for people of God. Christ said in the book of John 14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. Christ has prepared a place for us in the world beyond. A place where there will be no death, pain, or sorrow. A place where there will be no darkness as Christ is the light of the place.
Meanwhile, as there is heaven for God’s children, there is also a place for the children of the devil. That place is called hell. It is a place of torment, agony, and great pain. The similarity between these two places is that they are for life everlasting. Nevertheless, a man doesn’t just gain access to heaven or be sent to hell without judgment. A judgment must be passed on every individual who tasted death. It is on this judgment day that the people of God will go to heaven and the people of Satan will go to hell.
While the scripture may not tell us exactly the day judgment will happen, it, however, states that it shall come after the death of a man. Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment. After death comes judgment. Every man will be judged. After the judgment, heaven will receive God’s people and hell will be made available to those who were found wanting. It is a day of reckoning. As believers, we must always remember this day as it serves as a caution for us. There are quite a number of places in the Bible that expressed more on judgment day. We have highlighted 20 Bible verses about judgment day.

And the dead were judged by what was written in the books, according to what they had done. And the sea gave up the dead who were in it, Death and Hades gave up the dead who were in them, and they were judged, each one of them, according to what they had done. Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire. And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.

After that he must be released for a little while. Then I saw thrones, and seated on them were those to whom the authority to judge was committed. Also I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus and for the word of God, and those who had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands.

Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret.
