9:27 After this, the judgment - Of the great day. At the moment of death every man's final state is determined. But there is not a word in scripture of a particular judgment immediately after death.
Heb 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment. The fixed order for all men is to die once only, and to be judged after death. When they die, finality is stamped, on their life work.

Certainly this appointment with death cannot be cancelled postponed or avoided This appointment will be for one time only Judgement will be by the just Judge Jehovah commendation and glory for those who accept Jesus Christ and condemnation for those who reject Him It will either be eternal life or eternal death Now is the time for self examination

Everyone has an appointment with death, and who we lived determined our live after, to be with God or to be with the devil, after death there is no forgiveness from God.

"And as it is appointed unto man once to die and after this the judgment". First point to make here is that YOU WILL DIE ONCE DAY! Everybody is going to die, some sooner than others. When a man dies he doesn't go into extinct as some believe, or purgatory, such occultic believe isn't Biblical.
It is clearly stated that you would die one day. Your death is not going to be like one of those animals, because you have the breath of God (Gen. 2:7) in you and because Jesus shed His precious blood to wash away your sins (Rev. 1:5), you will have give to account of every moment of your life to God (2 Cor. 5:10). Heaven awaits those who live a holy and spotless Christian life, on the contrary, hell fire awaits sinners, those who refuse to accept Jesus Christ (Luke 16:19-23). Let's grow to become like Jesus, His coming is eminent!

it is Appointed unto man once to die and after this the judgement but when? there has to be a Resurrection day before any one is judged the lord will comeback then the graves will be opened as Jesus said Marvel not at this for the hour will come when all that are in the graves shall hear his voice and will come forth they that have done good unto the resurrection of life and they that have done evil unto the resurrection of damnation.and there is much more.scripture on this subject. there has to be a resurrection before anyone go any where. of course death seals his destenation as death finds you so shall the judgement.also there will be great tribulations such as was not since men was on the earth before the Lord,s come.then emidelity after the tribulation the lord will come so you better be ready when you die because there no getting ready after death.

It is appointed unto man once to die, and after that the judgment. There will be the Judgment Seat of Christ where all those who accepted Jesus as Lord, and Savior will stand. This takes place in Heaven during the time after the first resurrection of all believers. The second judgment will be after the second resurrection, after the 1000 year rule of Christ on Earth, then the Devil will be loosed from the abyss to deceive the nations. Fire comes down from Heaven, and the Devil is thrown into the Lake of Fire, where the Antichrist, and False prophet are. The Books will be opened at the White Throne Judgment, and all those whose names are not found written in the Lamb's Book of Life, will be cast into the Lake of Fire prepared for the Devil, and his fallen angels. Only unbelievers will be present at this judgment. This is known as the second death. So if you accept Christ now as your Savior, you will only die once. Those that reject Jesus blood atonement on the cross will be lost, and suffer eternal death the second time. Now is the day of salvation, and when you hear His voice harken, so that your name will be recorded in the Lamb's Book of Life.

When is the Judgment? Immediately after death or after the second coming of Jesus Christ? If so, when a person died, the person (including a real Christian) is not going to be with God as we hear in the cemetery before Judgment.

This means that no matter how you may live your life, know it that one day you will surely die and if that comes all your past deeds will be use to judge you either for condemnation or for eternal Glory with our LORD JESUS CHRIST.

live as though each day is your final day, understand that all deeds will be judged by the righteous judge which is Christ Jesus.
