“I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and scrolls were opened. Another scroll was opened too; this is the scroll of life. And the dead were judged on the basis of what was written in the scrolls about what they had done. The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and Death and the Grave gave up the dead that were in them, and people were judged by what they had done.” Revelation 20:12-13 CEB
There is time for everything under the sky, a time to mourn and time celebrate, to be born and time to die….death is the inevitable terminal for mortals and remains the only phenomenon beyond scientific or philosophical therapies.
Affirming this theory scripturally, “It is appointed for man to die once thereafter comes judgement”, decreed the Holy Bible, in the same token, the Glorious Quran stated, “every soul must test death thereafter judgement…..”. Therefore, there is an appointed time by the Creator known as the day of judgement for all creations to render account of deeds whether good or evil. Ironically, where will this judgment take place remains subject of theological speculation.
The day of judgement will be a great day of mixed feelings, anguish, sorrow, joy and fear. On that day, humanity will face the Master of the day of judgement. It is not a day of praise singing, hero worship or hypocrisy but a horrific day, who can stand it? No long protocol like your excellency, your eminence, your majesty or honourable or dishonourable members because before the throne of judgement, all are equal.
Apostle John in the Book of Revelation describes the day in the following words, “I looked and saw a great multitude from all nations, tribes and races…” On day the judgement every creation shall come before the Throne of the Most High, the short, tall, black, whites, rich, poor, weak, strong and even the world’s most powerful leaders with hands on nuclear code button will appear before the throne of judgement. Present and past leaders will face judgement with stewardships of how they acquired mandates of the people and governance.
Nigerian political elites will account for how elections are won and lost.

They will admit loosing elections but will try to blame the devil for misleading them. All security votes, bailed outs and COVID-19 funds diverted into private pockets shall be accounted for on that day. Even those who fabricated COVID-19 figures to attract funding and palliative will face the throne of judgement with the truth of what happened.
The looters of commonwealth who inflicted monumental damage on the well-being of the people by diverting funds for development into foreign bank accounts, buying of houses in Europe, America and Dubai will render accurate accounts of ill-gotten wealth stolen from public treasury. There will be no more compromised probe panels to investigate which nothing will come out of it. EFCC and ICPC will face the throne of judgement with truth of how the war against corruption was compromised, won and lost, including selective prosecution. There will be no hiding place or legal advice from the office of the attorney general for sacred cows.

Kidnappers will give account of the number of their victims accompanied with total amount of ransoms collected with details of their nefarious activities. The mystery of this day is that everybody shall voluntarily give account of deeds without the aid of any digital devices or legal representation. It’s only you and your deeds facing Almighty God.

On that day all kick backs, contract inflation and fuel subsidies racketeering will be accounted before the throne. Those who diverted COVID-19 palliative and refused to account for the monies claiming it is inhuman to disclosed beneficiaries will give account of all those who received and how it was disbursed. There will be no abracadabra at all.

Blood suckers, occultists, witches and wizards will not be left out, as their account books will be clothed with blood of victims.

For those who were guided rightly, their faces will shine with joy and undesirable amazement. On that day the mystery of human nature shall be revealed with consequences of either eternal paradise or condemnation.
The blood of missing people killed on the highways by ethnic or religious militias will be accounted for by perpetrators. Even the “unknown gunmen” who wrecked havoc on innocent people killing, raping and maiming will be known because they will face the judgement throne with their deeds. There will be no hiding place on the face of the earth. For the first time the devil shall be seen on that day but disappointedly he will be battling with his own account without any responsibility for anybody’s misdeeds.
Fire shall give account of all the people it consumed, water will not be spared, the gay, homosexuals, lesbians will confront the rule of creation with their records. “He who created them, created them man and woman” This day is real and there will be no adjoument.

The atheists who did not believe in God will face the Lord of the day of judgement with their disbelief and consciences.
Solomon Dalung will give account of his stewardship including all responsibilities bestowed upon him. I will give account for my deeds on earth whether good or evil. The boys scout khaki with red beret will not stand in my defence. On that day, I will answer all allegations bordering on my faith. I will account for the public trust and how I managed it. On that day it shall be established whether I am genuinely committed to promoting peace and harmony or merely seeking attention. There will be no appeals or preliminary objections because everybody shall be armed with record of proceedings which is your deeds. The only defence on the of judgment is good deeds but nothing else.
At the end of all presentation of accounts, then the Book of Life will be opened and anybody whose name is not found in the Book shall be thrown into the lake of hell fire, this will be the second death.
I fear this day greatly, because I cannot imagine how horrific it will be. Many things unknown or concealed shall be revealed. Blessed are those who found favour with this day for they shall inherit eternal paradise. I sincerely pray we reflect on this great day and amend our ways so that we shall all be blameless, amen. I love you all. Ramadan Kareem and Happy Sunday.
