Should we long for Judgment Day?

Woe to you who long
    for the day of the Lord!
Why do you long for the day of the Lord?
    That day will be darkness, not light.
It will be as though a man fled from a lion
    only to meet a bear,
as though he entered his house
    and rested his hand on the wall
    only to have a snake bite him.
Will not the day of the Lord be darkness, not light—
    pitch-dark, without a ray of brightness?  Amos 5:18-20
            On Judgment day, there will be no more chance of repentance or people accepting Christ as their savior.  That is a dark day of joy for many but misery for many more.
            The good news will be that God establishes his throne and takes his rightful place, every knee bowing and tongue confessing that Jesus is Lord.  The bad news is many will be escorted to hell to suffer for eternity.
            Long for it?  Maybe not.  Ready for it?  Absolutely.  Make sure you are ready for it and bring others with you too.
