Reference: Judgment, The Final


the sentence that will be passed on our actions at the last day (Mt 25; Ro 14:10-11; 2Co 5:10; 2Th 1:7-10).

The judge is Jesus Christ, as mediator. All judgment is committed to him (Ac 17:31; Joh 5:22,27; Re 1:7). "It pertains to him as mediator to complete and publicly manifest the salvation of his people and the overthrow of his enemies, together with the glorious righteousness of his work in both respects."

The persons to be judged are, (1) the whole race of Adam without a single exception (Mt 25:31-46; 1Co 15:51-52; Re 20:11-15); and (2) the fallen angels (2Pe 2:4; Jude 1:6).

The rule of judgment is the standard of God's law as revealed to men, the heathen by the law as written on their hearts (Lu 12:47-48; Ro 2:12-16); the Jew who "sinned in the law shall be judged by the law" (Ro 2:12); the Christian enjoying the light of revelation, by the will of God as made known to him (Mt 11:20-24; Joh 3:19). Then the secrets of all hearts will be brought to light (1Co 4:5; Lu 8:17; 12:2-3) to vindicate the justice of the sentence pronounced.

The time of the judgment will be after the resurrection (Heb 9:27; Ac 17:31).

As the Scriptures represent the final judgment "as certain Ec 11:9, universal 2Co 5:10, righteous Ro 2:5, decisive 1Co 15:52, and eternal as to its consequences Heb 6:2, let us be concerned for the welfare of our immortal interests, flee to the refuge set before us, improve our precious time, depend on the merits of the Redeemer, and adhere to the dictates of the divine word, that we may be found of him in peace."
