The Biblical Rules of Death: Who, What, Where, & Why we have to die

Rule #3: There is no forgiveness without blood (Heb 9:22)

In the Old Testament era, priests offered the blood of animals to try to reconcile sinful humans with the righteous God. The offering of innocent blood as a sacrifice for the sins of men was established by God (Genesis 3:21).

Hebrews 10:4 “It is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins.”

However, the blood of animals could only postpone the penalty of sin (Hebrews 10:4-1). It was like paying the annual interest on a loan but being incapable of repaying the principal amount. The sacrifice of bulls and goats kept their relationship with God active – but only temporarily. In the end, their sin debt was still outstanding and until it was paid, they could not go to heaven.

2 – Judgment at Death (Where will you go?)
This entry is part 5 of 5 in the series Judgments

Judgment at Death

The judgment that determines a person’s eternal destination is, without question, the most significant judgment for each of us. The Judgment at Death is that judgment.

The Judgement of Actions and Consequences could be considered a law (like the law of gravity). It condemns all who commit sin to die a physical death (Romans 5:12). But the Judgment at Death is the point where the consequences of an individual’s sins are dealt with. It is the event where a person is either allowed entry into heaven, or condemned to hell. 

So, how good must I be to enter heaven?

Why God Judges Us

And after all this life’s problems, we die! WHY?

Why God judges us

Why God judges us is a question of Biblical proportions! Keep reading →
