The Last Day --- A Day Of Rejoicing Or Grief?

There’s an old sacred song we sing from time to time that contains the following words in the chorus: “When we all get to heaven, What a day of rejoicing that will be! When we all see Jesus, We’ll sing and shout the victory“ (see video).

This great day of rejoicing is a day appointed by the Father (Matthew 24:36; Acts 17:31) and that day is a certainty in coming (Hebrews 9:27). Everyone who has ever lived will be there on that day (2 Corinthians 5:10) — it will be the "last day" (John 12:48). On this last day, the dead will be raised, the living will be changed, all will be judged, the earth will be destroyed and the eternal abode for all will begin.

Some questions we might ask are: (1) “Are we ready for that last day?” and (2) “What will that last day hold for each one of us?”

From the Scriptures, let us note the following observations here.
