Death Before Judgment
Is Hebrews 9:27 talking about physical death? Let's examine.
COULD ONCE TO DIE POINT TO THE KILLING OF THE TWO WITNESSES?
Heb 9:27 And as it is appointed unto MEN once to die (be judged?), but after this the judgment:
Re 11:7 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.
ISN’T TRIBULATION JUDGMENT ITSELF?
1Pe 4:17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?
1Co 11:32 But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.
Ps 35:24 Judge me, O LORD my God, according to thy righteousness; and let them not rejoice over me.
Eze 39:21 And I will set my glory among the heathen, and all the heathen shall see my judgment that I have executed, and my hand that I have laid upon them.
Eze 39:23 And the heathen shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity: because they trespassed against me, therefore hid I my face from them, and gave them into the hand of their enemies: so fell they all by the sword.
Eze 39:24 According to their uncleanness and according to their transgressions have I done unto them, and hid my face from them.
Eze 39:25 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Now will I bring again the captivity of Jacob, and have mercy upon the whole house of Israel, and will be jealous for my holy name;
Eze 39:26 After that they have borne their shame, and all their trespasses whereby they have trespassed against me, when they dwelt safely in their land, and none made them afraid.
DEATH: SALVATION IN CHRIST?
Heb 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die <599>, but after this the judgment:
Heb 9:28 So Christ was once offered to <bear the sins of many>; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.
Col 2:20 Wherefore if ye be dead <599> with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the
world, are ye subject to ordinances,
Ro 6:4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by
the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
Ro 6:7 For he that is dead <599> is freed from sin.
Joh 12:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it
die <599>, it bringeth forth much fruit.
Ps 116:15 Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.
Nu 23:10 Who can count the dust of Jacob, and the number of the fourth part of Israel? Let me die the death of the
righteous, and let my last end be like his!
Job 3:20 Wherefore is light given to him that is in misery, and life unto the bitter in soul;
Job 3:21 Which long for death, but it cometh not; and dig for it more than for hid treasures;
Job 3:22 Which rejoice exceedingly, and are glad, when they can find the grave?
Isa 66:24 And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcases of the men that have transgressed against me: for
their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh.
Lu 16:22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died <599>, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom:
the rich man also died <599>, and was buried;
Re 9:6 And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die <599>, and death shall
flee from them.
DAY OF SALVATION: TIME TO SEEK THE LORD?
Isa 55:6 Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:
Ec 12:1 Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them;
Ec 12:2 While the sun, or the light, or the moon, or the stars, be not darkened, nor the clouds return after the rain:
Mt 24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
Pr 1:27 When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.
Pr 1:28 Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:
Ho 5:6 They shall go with their flocks and with their herds to seek the LORD; but they shall not find him; he hath withdrawn himself from them.
Am 8:12 And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall NOT FIND IT.
Re 9:6 And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.
2Co 6:2 (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, NOW is the day of salvation.)
Joh 9:4 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.
Isa 61:1 The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;
Isa 61:2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;
Heb 3:15 While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.
The Bible appears to be associating death prior to judgment to the salvation one has to find in Christ. It seems only ONE time is alloted to the body of Christ to become right with God. Once that time is past, then God brings judgment to the unsaved church that is babylon.
