The Last Judgement

I wonder how the Man will stand at the Judgement? At this moment, he stands as the Judge with the last laugh. I wonder if he realizes there is an even bigger Judge than he?

Strangely, I felt like Adam in Genesis Chapter 3. Although the Lord did listen to Adam before He pronounced Judgement, I wasn’t given any opportunity when the Man with the Gold pronounced his judgement. It was quick, effective and cleanly sliced through my body and soul. I wonder if Adam felt that way.

Of course, both judgements are warranted. I won’t argue that. But it’s the pain that really hurts and lingers. Maybe festers.

A wise friend said the string of this judgement will fade in time. That comforted me and gave me some hope that maybe next month or next year will be better. And, I believe I will be better in the long run for my decision to sell. Just did not expect such a scathing final slicing judgement from the Man with the Gold.

Thankfully, the final judgement will be conducted by the Final Judge. It will be a right and correct judgement.
