Death and Taxes

It is jokingly said that the only 2 certainties in life are death and taxes.  Most of us, especially if we live in the Western world, smile and agree with the statement. We know we will die one day, sooner or later, and we know there is little escape from paying the taxman. In Hebrews 9:27 the Bible says “… It is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgement.”

The one who will sit on the judgement throne will be none other than the Son of God – the Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible says Jesus is the Saviour of sinners who died on the Cross of Calvary to bear the punishment of all who come to Him in Faith and Repentance. “And this is the will of him that sent me, that everyone who sees the Son, and believes on him, may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day” John 6:40.
