On September 18, the announcement came forth that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had died. She will now stand as witness before the most important case of her life, or should we say, afterlife or eternity where, she will not be the Justice but be the judged. The Bible clearly teaches each man will account for what they did in their lives, and according to the Holy Bible, each of us will die, and then stand before the judgement of Jesus Christ, the Supreme Judge of the Universe.
“27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.”
Do we know if Ruth Bader Ginsburg repented for her sins and accepted Christ? That would be an emphatic no, we do not know her heart, but I pray that she believed in Christ, for I would not want anyone to suffer the terror of God. What we do know is that life is short, that we need to examine ourselves because one day, our time in this life will be over, and we too will be judged.
“15 Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;)
16 In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.”
During this time of the loss of Justice Ginsburg, I seek for you to ponder over your own life where do you stand with Jesus Christ because we all die, and sometimes it is sooner than we think.
2 Corinthians 5:10-11
“10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
11 Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are made manifest unto God; and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences.”
Please do not have a hard heart, do not turn from God who loves you. He does not want you to pay for your deeds.
“5 But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God;
6 Who will render to every man according to his deeds.”
God loved you so much that He put His wrath for your evil deeds upon His Son, Jesus Christ, because He does not want you to suffer but have everlasting life with Him.
“16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.”
“6 For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.
8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.
10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.
11 And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.“
The Eternal God loves you and sent His Son to give you a new life in Him. Justice Ginsburg is dead, and her life is over, and she does not have any more time to make decisions. If you are reading this, you are alive, and you still have time to escape the wrath of God and accept His Son, Jesus Christ. Life is short. Eternity is not. The Bible tells us that if you believe in the name of Jesus Christ, that He is the Son of God, that He died for your sins, was buried and rose again, you will become a child of God.
1 Corinthians 15:3-4
“3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.”
“12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.“
History books will detail the life of Justice Ginsburg, tell us she served over two decades on the Supreme Court, and her vote helped make social changes in the United States. History will not tell us is where Justice Ginsburg will spend eternity; sadly, she is gone and out of options but the big question is where will you spend eternity?
