The Final Judgment

by David Padfield

  • All of the nations of the earth who have ever lived will be present (Matt. 25:32)
  • The Word of God will be the standard of judgment — not the creed books written by men (John 12:48)
  • We will be judged on the basis of our deeds and not just our attitude (Rom. 2:6)
  • No “warning signs” will be given prior to the return of Christ (Matt. 24:36)
  • Christ will return at an unexpected time, during normal circumstances upon the earth (2 Pet. 3:10)
  • When Christ returns “every eye shall see Him,” not just the redeemed (Rev. 1:7)
  • For some, it will be a day of unspeakable joy (Rev. 21:1-4)
  • For others, it will be a day of horror (2 Thes. 1:6-8)
  • When Christ returns He will deliver the kingdom back to His Father (1 Cor. 15:24)
  • There is no passage in the Bible which states Christ will ever set foot on this earth again — the Bible teaches that we will “meet the Lord in the air” (1 Thes. 4:17)
  • Once Christ receives His own they will “always” be with Him, not just for a 1,000 years as some teach (1 Thes. 4:17)
  • While we wait for the Lord to return we have the opportunity to repent (2 Pet. 3:10)
  • There is no second chance for men to repent after death (Heb. 9:27)
  • Take comfort in the thought of His return (1 Thes. 4:18)
