Hebrews 9:27

It is appointed (apokeitai). Present middle (or passive) of apokeimai, "is laid away" for men. Cf. same verb in Luke 19:20 ; Colossians 1:5 ; 2 Timothy 4:8 (Paul's crown). Once to die (apax apoqanein). Once for all to die, as once for all to live here. No reincarnation here. After this cometh judgement (meta touto krisi). Death is not all. Man has to meet Christ as Judge as Jesus himself graphically pictures ( Matthew 25:31-46 ; John 5:25-29 ).
