Say You're Sorry Before It's Too Late

After a person is caught doing something he or she shouldn't have done,
then he or she will usually say, "I'm sorry. I promise I won't do it again."
But it is the fear of punishment that causes these words to be spoken.
When there is a very small chance of being caught and found guilty,
most people will have no reason to apologize and say they are sorry.
Instead they will just wait until they die and appear before the Almighty.
Then they will loudly exclaim, "I'm so sorry. Please have mercy on me."
But then it will be too late and they will be cast into hell for all eternity,
and there they will know they waited too long to ask God for His mercy.
But today, right now, it's not too late if you truly want to be forgiven.
All you have to do is believe in Jesus Christ, God's one and only Son,
and then ask God in Jesus' name to forgive you for all you have done.

The Judgment of God:
Matthew 5:25-26 - "Settle matters quickly with your adversary who is taking you to court. Do it while you are still with him on the way, or he may hand you over to the judge, and the judge may hand you over to the officer, and you may be thrown into prison. I tell you the truth, you will not get out until you have paid the last penny."
Jude 1:14-15 - "See, the Lord is coming with thousands upon thousands of his holy ones to judge everyone, and to convict all the ungodly of all the ungodly acts they have done in the ungodly way, and of all the harsh words ungodly sinners have spoken against him."
Revelation 20:11-15 - Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. Earth and sky fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what he had done. Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death. If anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.
