An inlet to three dreadful things!

Thomas Brooks, "A Heavenly Cordial" 1665)

Death is dreadful to the unbelieving sinner, for it puts an everlasting end to all his temporal . . .
  and enjoyments.

Death will put an everlasting end to all his pleasures of sin. Now the sinner shall never more have one merry day. In Hell there is no . . .
  no singing — but howling;
  no music — but madness;
  no sporting — but sighing;
  no dancing — but wringing of hands
and gnashing of teeth for evermore!

In a word, now the sinner shall find by woeful experience, that death will be an inlet to three dreadful things:
   1. To judgment, Hebrews 9:27;
   2. To an irreversible sentence of condemnation, Matthew 25:41;
   3. To endless, ceaseless, and remediless sufferings!
