3 Appointments

Hebrews 9:27-28

9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

9:28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.

Introduction: We all have three appointments an (1) Appointment To Live, (1) Appointment To Die, and an (1) Appointment To Judgement. The question for today is, "What Happens When We Die?" This is an important question because death is something we all eventually face. The Statistics on death are appalling. The numbers tell us that 100 out of 100 people will eventually die.

And death is no respecter of persons. It strikes the old and the young, the sick and the healthy, the poor and the rich, the good and the bad. I'm sure you've heard the old joke about two friends (we'll call them Don and Fred) who wanted to know if they play baseball in Heaven. They decided that the first one to die would find out and come back and let the other one know. Don died first. And a few days after his death, he appeared to Fred in a dream. Fred asked "What did you find out? Do they play baseball in heaven?" Don replied, "I've got some good news and some bad news. The good news is: they play baseball in Heaven. The bad news is: YOU'RE PITCHING TOMORROW NIGHT!" Death is no respecter of persons.

They say, "There are only two things certain in life: death and taxes." I submit that death is more certain than taxes. A clever man can find ways to evade taxes, but no one evades the Grim Reaper. When your time is up, it's up. Death can be postponed, but never eliminated. The fact of the matter is, someday I will die, and those I love will die, and nothing can change this solemn fact. We all have a meeting with death. So what happens when we die? Let's begin by talking about what WILL NOT happen when we die. Let's talk about . .

1. Appointment With Life

a. Job14:1 Man that is born of a woman is of few F72 days, and full of trouble.

2. Appointment With Death

a. Misconception:

i. Some folks say that death is the end of existence. They say that when you die, you simply cease to exist. But that isn't true according to the Bible. The Bible says . . . (Gen. 25:8). This implies an existence after death. So death is NOT the end of existence.

ii. Some folks say that when a person dies, they are "reincarnated" into something or someone else. The Bible says . . . (Heb. 9:27). You get just one run in life and that's it.

iii. Some folks say that there is a "second chance" after death. They say that if a person says "No" to Jesus in this life, then they'll be given another chance in the life to come.

b. When people
