Michelangelo's Masterpiece

In the year 2009, my husband and I accompanied my sister and her family on a trip to Italy.
Included in our trip was a visit to the Vatican in Rome.
There was a long line-up to get in but when we did, it was worth the wait.
We went through the Gallery of the Tapestries and saw the breath-taking masterpieces of Michelangelo’s Dome, Belvedere Courtyard, and many other fabulous rooms with rare paintings.
We sat quietly in the Sistine Chapel and gazed at the magnificent fresco of The Last Judgement by Michelangelo.

While sitting there we were told the meaning the painting conveyed.
It is the belief of Christians that Our Lord will judge us at his Second Coming.
Those who have accepted him are automatically qualified to join him in his kingdom.
Those who have rejected Him in this life, who have no remorse for sins they committed and do not seek forgiveness, will have condemned themselves to hell for all eternity.
The Lord rejects no one.
However, by rejecting God’s grace in this life, one already judges oneself, and receives according to one’s works and can even condemn oneself for all eternity.
When the door separating Good and Evil is closed at The Last Judgment there is no turning back.
We do not know when the Second Coming will occur.
Jesus said, “As to the exact day or hour, no one knows it, neither the angels in heaven nor even the Son, but only the Father.”
