Chap. xxxiii. Of the last Judgement S


GOD hath appointed a day wherein he will judge the world in righteousness by Jesus Christ to whom all power and judgement is given of the Father In which day not only the apostate angels shall be judged but likewise all persons that have lived upon earth shall appear before the tribunall of Christ to give an account of their thoughts words and deeds and to receive according to what they have done in the body whether good or evil


THE end of Gods appointing this day is for the manifestation of the glory of his mercy in the eternall salvation of the elect and of his justice in the damnation of the reprobate who are wicked and disobedient for then shall the righteous go into everlasting life and receive that fullness of joy and refreshing which shall come from the presence of the Lord but the wicked who know not God and obey not the gospell of Jesus Christ shall be cast into eternall torments and be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his power


AS Christ would have us certainly to be perswaded that there shall be a day of judgement both to deter all men from sin and for the greater consolation of the godly in their adversity so will he have that day unknown to men that they may shake off all carnall security and be always watchfull because they know not at what hour the Lord will come and may be ever prepared to say Come Lord Jesus come quickly Amen
