Who is God - IV?
“…God… will judge everyone, …the living and the dead” (1 Pet 4:5, NLT). “Yes, each of us will give a personal account to God” (Rom 14:12, NLT). “Those who live only to satisfy their own sinful nature will harvest decay and death, …but those who live to please the Spirit will harvest everlasting life…” (Gal 6:8, NLT). Daniel saw “…judgment [in progress]; …books were opened” (Dan 7:10, 22); “…and the dead were judged out of those things [that] were written in the books…” (Rev 20:12). “…Judgment… [began] at the house of God…” (1 Pet 4:17), so “…now He commands… people everywhere to repent” (Acts 17:30, NRSV), “…and turn to God so that your sins may be wiped out” (Acts 3:19, NRSV). And those who obey God, their “…sins… precede them to judgment, while the sins of [of the disobedient] follow them there” (1 Tim 5:24, NRSV).
