What will you do now?

Spurgeon, "The Curse Removed"

I beg of you, for Christ's sake, think of yourself even now before
your Judge. Conceive him there in yonder heavens upon his
throne. Imagine that now you are looking upon him.

Oh! my hearer, what will you do?

You are before the judgment-throne, without Christ- you are
there naked.

'Rocks! hide me! hide me! hide me! I am naked!'

But you are dragged out, sinner!

What will you do now?

You are dragged naked before your Judge.

I see you bend your knee; I hear you cry, 'O Jesus, clothe me
now!' 'No!,' says Jesus, 'the robe now is hung up forever, not
to be worn by you.'

'Savior! spread your wings over me!'
'No!,' says he, 'I called, and you refused;
I stretched out my hand, and no man regarded.
I also will laugh at your calamity, and mock when your fear

Do I talk realities, or mere fictions?
Why, realities; and yet if I were reading a novel to you, you
would be lost in tears.

But when I tell you God's truth, that soon his chariot shall
descend to earth, and he shall judge us all, you sit unmoved and
careless of that event.

But oh! be it known to every careless sinner,
death and judgment are not the things they fancy;
everlasting wrath and eternal severance from God are not such
light things to endure as they have conceived.

"It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God."
"Who among us shall dwell with devouring fire?
Who among us shall abide with everlasting torments?"
