Death You can't avoid it

An old legend tells of a merchant in Baghdad who one day sent his servant to the market. Before very long, the servant came back, white and trembling, and in great agitation said to his master, "Down in the market place I was jostled by a woman in the crowd, and when I turned around, I saw it was Death that jostled me. She looked at me and made a threatening gesture. Master, please lend me your horse, for I must hasten away to avoid her. I will ride to Samarra and there I will hide, and Death will not find me." The merchant lent him his horse, and the servant galloped away in great haste.

Later, the merchant went down to the market place and saw Death standing in the crowd. He went over to her and asked, "Why did you make a threatening gesture at my servant?"

"That was not a threatening gesture," Death said. "I was astonished to see him in Baghdad, for I have an appointment with him tonight in Samarra."

Hebrews 9:27, "It is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment."
