THE SEVENTH ARTICLE: "From thence He shall come to judge the living and the

dead."

 

It is of the office of the King and Lord to pronounce judgment: "The king

that sitteth on the throne of judgment scattereth away all evil with His

look."1 Since Christ, therefore, ascended into heaven and sits at the right

hand of God as Lord of all, it is clear that His is the office of Judge.

For this reason we say in the rule of Catholic faith that "He shall come to

judge the living and the dead." Indeed the Angels have said that: "This

Jesus who is taken up from you into heaven shall so come as you have seen

Him going into heaven."2

 

We shall consider three facts about the judgment: (1) the form of the

judgment; (2) the fear of the judgment; (3) our preparation for the

judgment.
