The Solemn Scene

Retire a little from the hustle and bustle of the world, and from the company of the mirthful. Endeavor to realize the solemn scene! O think of the tremendous day, and the poor miserable state of poor Christless sinners.   Those who are then found Christless will also be speechless, helpless, and hopeless! How will their heads hang down, and their knees knock together!

O what pale faces, quivering lips, and fainting hearts! O dreadful day, when the earth shall be trembling, the stars falling, the trumpet sounding, the dead rising, the elements melting, and the world on fire!

[George Burder]


Revelation 20:15 ... And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

Daniel 12:2 ... And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.

Matthew 10:28 ... And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.❤
