The days of our years are three score years and ten (Psalm 90: 10). It is appointed for the human being to die but once and after that judgement (Hebrews 9:27).

The theme, “The Judgement Day” was chosen because the composer wants to touch on a very sensitive issue which concerns the Second Coming of Christ which is a very important subject for Christians.

There are so many social cankers that have succeeded in changing the gears of life in almost unbearable directions. Human beings do not understand this but the Omnipotent God is His own interpreter.

The Book of Revelation talks a lot about the end time but are we paying heed to the voice of the one crying in the wilderness? Who knows the day? Neither you nor I. Ours is to be on guard. For one day, Christ will descend and take His own people along. Are you one of His own? Will you be one of those He will carry along?

It is the composer’s wish that anyone who would listen to this music, would realise the terrific nature of the Judgement Day and refrain from his or her wicked ways.
