Only this life, then judgement

Hebrews 9

27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:  -kjv

27 Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment,  -niv

27 And just as it is appointed for people to die once—and after this, judgment—  -hcsb

Observations and comments:

  1. People only live one life and after that to die once. This verse suggest that there is no possibility of reincarnation and thus of past lives. The soul, however, lives on after the death of the body. Believers will be in the presence of the Lord after death (2 Corinthians 5:8).
  2. People are given one chance in this life on earth to accept or reject Jesus and after that judgement (2 Corinthians 5:10)

  1. Thai Shin — I agree with #1 & #2 of your comments. However with # 1 you state: People only live to die once.. Those words are true. I don’t think of dying most of my time but I also live to prepare for death, to enjoy certain things, to enjoy good food, to be with people I like to, etc. Our living here on earth is our basic training like the marines and military guys go thru. If we practice the events and live as God tells us to we can enjoy this life when events are going normal remembering that earth is not our real home. This could be hard to believe for some people since this earth so far is all we know. If we belong to God the Holy Scriptures States that Jesus goes to Heaven to prepare a mansion for us. At my age earth is starting to move away from me and Heaven is getting closer. In Faith we will see Jesus!

    • Thanks my friend for your comments. What I meant was that we only live one life and after that to die once.
