It happened at this year’s Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in New York City. Holding her dog’s head erect, the little girl stood before the judge. While the judge probed the dog’s frame—a layman’s opinion—the girl stared at her, attentive for some response.
The girl’s eyes, those all-important causeways from sight to Brain-Central, filled with fear, expectation and bewilderment. Hopeful that the judge would be pleased; terrified she would discover something unacceptable; petulant against any possibility her pet could be less than perfect. San Diego U-T, 2/14/17
Think of that little girl as an example of us when humanity gathers before the Great White Throne, those on the King’s right racing there to see and hear; those on his left driven there without their permission. Then Jesus orders “the books” opened to angels. Then each mortal is called by name and commanded “front and center,” every other looking on! Then angels carefully and loudly read each person’s record. Then, with each name called, search is made in the Book of Life for that person’s name.
Judgement Day will find every eye from every person drawn to and riveted on THE JUDGE. And each person’s eyes will express whatever’s in his SOUL. Let us be aware, however, a fluttering disquiet will hover over even the saved, tempered by hope. But a quaking tremble will shake the unsaved, deepened by despair. And no one, not even the saved, casual, carefree, certain, frivolous, self-confident. Our humanity cannot stand there without some turbulence when facing Almighty God in his holiness and glory.
