    Heb9:27 means that every man will die in the flesh once and after which will meet the heavenly judgment panel.

    By what this chapter is saying, I believe when Paul was saying it is appointed unto man ONCE to die then after this the judgement, He was speaking that our sins have been judged, our judgement was placed on Jesus. Now to us who look to Him he is appearing the second time WITHOUT SIN unto SALVATION!! Praise God! He is not coming to deal with the sins of humanity, that has been judged.

    Why is it so many people who say they have die and come back to tell what they saw after being dead??? I just where a person they said was dead in the hospital - but woke up to say he had been to hell and saw satan's eyes.
    The bible doesn't teach that, and Christ died only once for all.

    Are you Jewish? Are you a Hebrew? Words mean things! Paul IS the Apostle to the Gentiles. Therefore the Pauline Letters are written to us Gentiles, the rest of the Bible is for OUR LEARNING! We today are saved by a FREE GIFT and sealed unto the Day of Redemption the moment we believe the Gospel in 1 Corin. 15 ...PERIOD! You are failing to 'Rightly Divide the Word of Truth'.
