Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Hebrews 9:27

_ _ as — inasmuch as.

_ _ it is appointedGreek, “it is laid up (as our appointed lot),” Colossians 1:5. The word “appointed” (so Hebrewseth” means) in the case of man, answers to “anointed” in the case of Jesus; therefore “the Christ,” that is, the anointed, is the title here given designedly. He is the representative man; and there is a strict correspondence between the history of man and that of the Son of man. The two most solemn facts of our being are here connected with the two most gracious truths of our dispensation, our death and judgment answering in parallelism to Christ’s first coming to die for us, and His second coming to consummate our salvation.

_ _ once — and no more.

_ _ after this the judgment — namely, at Christ’s appearing, to which, in Hebrews 9:28, “judgment” in this verse is parallel. Not, “after this comes the heavenly glory.” The intermediate state is a state of joyous, or else agonizing and fearful, expectation of “judgment”; after the judgment comes the full and final state of joy, or else woe.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Hebrews 9:23-28.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Hebrews 9:27

After this, the judgment — Of the great day. At the moment of death every man's final state is determined. But there is not a word in scripture of a particular judgment immediately after death.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Hebrews 9:27

And as it is appointed unto men (r) once to die, but after this the judgment:

(r) He speaks of the natural state and condition of man: For though Lazarus and certain others died twice, that was no usual thing, but extraordinary: and as for them that shall be changed, their changing is a kind of death. See 1 Corinthians 15:51

Heb 9:27
It is appointed unto men once to die, after this The Judgement. GOD said to Adam, "in (the day) that you eat of the fruit of the tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, YOU SHALL SURELY DIE". Eve and Adam disobeyed GOD'S COMMAND and on (that very day they Spiritually Died), (their Pristine Spiritual Relationship with GOD was Changed) their Sin (Transgression of Law) Separated them from their LOVING CREATOR. Now all of Adam and Eve's progeny (also) was born (brought forth) into The State of Spiritual Separation from GOD, in other words, (THE State of Death because they inherited The Nature to Break GOD'S LAW). "It is appointed unto man Once To Die", "after this the Judgement" Hebrews 9:27. As man is now brought forth into the Hallway of Time, his life is subject to Judgement: his choice to continue in his natural state of Spiritual Separation from GOD (Death) (or) seeking (LIFE) which only GOD GIVES through (dia) YAHOSHUA THE SON OF GOD, THE CHRIST.



THE JUDGEMENT John 5:22 - For the Father Judgeth no man, but hath committed (all- pas, Greek word) Judgment unto the Son (the object of Judgement)

John 5:23 - That all men should Honour the Son, (even as they Honour the Father). He that Honoureth not the Son Honoureth not the Father which hath sent him

Judgement, (krisis - Greek word to discern). Which choice will man choose, (To Honor Even As) or Not to Honor ?

John 5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on Him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave His Only Begotten Son, that whosoever believeth (into- eis Greek word) Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. AMEN ! ! !
