“‘He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day” – John 12:48
There will be no one in Heaven that boasts that they had anything to do with why they are there.
There will be no one in Hell that blames God that He had anything to do with why they are there.
The same word the unbeliever rejects will be his judge.
“This man does not need to attack Jesus or rage against His sayings; simply not to receive them is fatal and insures his judgment.” – R.C.H. Lenski, Commentary on John, 1963, p. 896.
