 48D   Man's Problems Does Not End When He Dies


Wicked people think that they can get away with their wicked ways. They think that the problem of man will end upon his death (cessation of breath). They also think that since death is sure to come, they might as well adopt the hedonistic (pleasure-seeking) attitude. Following the "Eat , drink, and be merry, for tomorrow you will die" mind-set. They seek to enjoy life to the fullest by spending it in merrymaking and in indulging themselves in worldly pleasures. Is this the correct way of living here on earth?

If only everything ends in death, then they would have a point in following such principle. but the big question is:

48D.1   Does man's problem ends when he dies (cessation of breath)?

In II Corinthians 510, Apostle Paul gives us the answer:

For all of us must appear before Christ, to be judged by him. Each one will receive what he deserves, according to everything he has done, good or bad, in his bodily life. (2 Corinthians 5:10, TEV)

Death is not the end of man's problem and existence because there is an appointed time when everyone will appear before the judgment seat of Christ. This will happen on the Day of Judgment, when each one will receive his reward or punishment depending on what he had done in his lifetime, whether good or bad.

48D.2   How will judgment happen when people are already dead or in the grave?

In John 5:28-29, this is written:

Do not be surprised at this; the time is coming when all the dead will hear his voice and come out of their graves: those who have done good will rise and live, and those who have done evil will rise and be condemned. (John 5:28-29, TEV)

All the dead will come out of their graves, either to rise and live or to rise and be condemned. So, just as one cannot escape death, no one can also escape facing the judgment seat of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is therefore wrong in spending one's life in wickedness, excessive merrymaking and in worldly pleasures.

48D.3   What further proves that no one can escape the judgment seat of Christ, and that men must suffer the consequences of his wicked deeds while he lived on earth?

In Revelation 20:12-14, this is recorded:

And I saw the dead, great and small alike, standing before the throne. Books were opened, and then another book was opened, the book of the living. The dead were judged according to what they had done, as recorded in the books. Then the sea gave up its dead. Death and the world of the dead also gave up the dead they held. And all were judged according to what they had done. Then death and the world of the dead were thrown into the lake of fire. (This lake of fire is the second death.) (Revelation 20:12-14, TEV)

Nothing that man has done in his lifetime is hidden from God, because every deed, either good or bad is recorded and to be accounted for. Those who will be resurrected to condemnation or those who will not be saved from God's wrath will be thrown to the lake of fire, which is the eternal punishment, called the second death.


So death (cessation of breath) is not the end of man's problem, neither it is a solution. Many people simply refuse to understand that death (cessation of breath) is not the full payment of sin. It is the second death in the lake of fire which is the full payment of sin.
