1 What Will Your Answer Be? Some-day you’ll stand at the bar on high, Some day your record you’ll see; Some-day you’ll answer the question of life, What will your answer be? Sadly you’ll stand, if you’re unprepared, trembling, you’ll fall on your knees; Facing the sentence of life or of death, What will that sentence be? Now is the time to pre-pare my friend, make your soul spotless and free; Washed in the blood of the Crucified One, He will your answer be?

2 The Chorus What will it be? What will it be? Where will you spend your eternity? What will it be, O what will it be? What will your answer be?

3 The First Stanza: “Some day you’ll stand at the bar on high, some day your record you’ll see.” – Begins by drawing an image of one standing at the bar (a court scene), at which time the record of your life will be seen, 2 Cor. 5:10; Rev. 20:15. “Some day you’ll answer the question of life, what will your answer be?” – Relates to whether we have lived up to the God- intended purpose of our life. Eccl. 12:13,14.

4 The Second Stanza: “Sadly you’ll stand if you’re unprepared, Trembling you’ll fall on your knee.” – We will fall on our knees! Phil. 2: For the unprepared it will be a time of trembling! Acts 9:5-6. “Facing the sentence of life or of death, what will that answer be?” – The sentence will be that of life, Matt. 25:46, or of death, Rev. 21:8. What will your answer be?

5 The Third Stanza: “Now is the time to prepare my friend, Make your soul spotless and free” – Now is the time to prepare! Prov. 27:1; 2 Cor. 6:2 – By obtaining God’s forgiveness, you can make your “soul spotless and free,” Acts 2:38; 2 Pet. 3:14. “Washed in the blood of the Crucified One, He will your answer be.” – Christians are those who have been washed in the blood, Rev. 1:5; I John 17; Acts 22:16; Eph. 1:7!

6 The Chorus: “What will it be? What will it be? Where will you spend your eternity? What will it be, O what will it be, what will it be?” Note: The idea of spending eternity is a bit misleading, for eternity can not be spent; it will last forever! But as we contemplate that day, each of us should ponder the question, “what will my eternity be!” We can know! I John 5:13

7 Judgment Day is Coming! Heb. 9:27: “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.” 2 Cor. 5:10: “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.” Acts 17:31: “Because He hath appointed a day, in the which He will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom He hath ordained; whereof He has given assurance unto all men, in that He hath raised Him from the dead.” Note also Acts 24:25 and Romans 14:12.

8 Events Which Will Occur on that Day: All The Dead will be raised, John 5:28-29; Acts 24:15. Jesus and His angels will appear, Matt. 25:31. All will stand before the Great Judge, Matt. 25:32; Rev. 20:12; 2 Cor. 5:10. Jesus will be the Judge, Acts 17:31; Matt. 25: The books will be opened, Rev. 20:12. – The word of God, John 12:48. – All will be judged by the same divine standard!

9 Events Which Will Occur (con’t) Each person will give account to God, Rom. 14:12; Matt. 7: – Will include our thoughts, I Cor. 4:5, words, Matt. 12:36- 37, and deeds, 2 Cor. 5:10; Rev. 20:15. Each person will receive His just reward, Rom. 2:5-11. (There will be no mistakes!) Eternal Sentence will be pronounced and carried out, Matt. 25:31-34, 41,46. – Eternal life, Matt. 25:34,46. – Eternal punishment, Matt. 25:41,46. The earth and the works therein will be burned up, 2 Peter 3:10-12.

10 Why Has God Appointed a Day of Judgment? It will provide opportunity for the glory and honor of Jesus to be acknowledged by all, Phil. 2:9-11; 2 Thess. 1:10. It will provide Opportunity for the Justice of God to be Served, 2 Thess. 1:5-8. – The ungodly will be convicted of their sins, Jude 15. – The righteous will have their works made evident! So that the Victory of Righteousness and the Defeat of Evil can be completed! – The victory of righteousness, I Cor. 15: – The defeat of evil, Rev. 20:10,14.

11 How Our Knowledge of These Events Should Affect Us: Sinners should be moved to repent and obey God now, Acts 17: Christians should be motivated to live a life of Godliness and Faithfulness, 2 Pet. 3:11,14. – Must not be negligent, Heb. 4:1,11; 3:12. – Must love and serve God with the whole heart, Matt. 22: – Should be patient, wait on the Lord, Jas. 5:7-8,11. Vengeance belongs to the Lord; He will repay! Rom. 12:19. Wait for the blessings which will come, I Pet. 1:3-4. Keep being faithful, Rev. 2:10.

12 Conclusion: There’s a Great Day coming; the day of Judgment! Judgment delayed is not Judgment escaped! 2 Peter 3:7-9. Will you, like Felix, tremble and remain in your sins, Acts 24:25, or will you, like the eunuch hasten to obey, Acts 8:36. cf. Heb. 10:31? “Some day you’ll stand at the bar on high, Some day your record you’ll see; some day you’ll answer the question of life, what will your answer be?”
