Judgment Day 2023: Date, History, Interesting Facts about Laws

The Judgment Day occurs on January 17 each year. Even though it sounds solemn, it is a fun holiday that serves as a reminder that we are our own best judges and that we do not have to wait until death to recognise our rights and wrongs. On the Day of Judgment, all you need to do is look in the mirror and be your own judge. “Now you don’t have to die to find out how you measure up to your deity’s requirements. Just look at yourself in the mirror, wait for the answer, and try again.” The Day of Judgment serves as a reminder to be kind and do good even when nobody is watching.

HISTORY OF JUDGMENT DAY

Judgment Day, also known as the Last Judgment, refers to God’s judgement of humanity. Judaism, Christianity, and Islam all believe in the concept of Judgment Day. Christians believe that the saved will go to heaven, while the damned will go to hell. Similarly, one of the five fundamental beliefs of Muslims is the Day of Judgment, on which the blessed will ascend to Heaven and the wicked will descend to Hell. On the final day of their mortal lives, everyone will be judged according to their deeds, which will determine whether they are in heaven or hell.

According to the Bible, the events of Judgment Day were predetermined roughly 2,000 years ago. God pardons our sins and permits us to repent for our wrongdoings.

The apostle John had a vision of the Day of Judgment, which he described as follows: “I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled, and there was found for them no place.” And I saw the dead, both small and great, standing before God; and the books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life; and the dead were judged according to their deeds as recorded in the books. Therefore, according to John’s vision, the Day of Judgment will be presided over by God and a person in whom he places his trust. Jesus, according to the Bible, will be God’s appointed Judge on the Day of Judgment.
