This is a thought provoking question.
“And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.”
Forty-five tears ago after reading this text and while involved in my prayer, I asked God (then), OK, if we are appointed to die once (The final judgement) how many times are we appointed to live, before that final judgement?
His response was felt in my heart as it seemed to vibrate with heavenly quivering and I knew that I was on to something and He was applauding my reasoning and deductions. Keep asking questions, don’t assume everything is in black or white. I created the black matter as well as the grey.
