The Second Coming and Judgment
Longing for the 2nd coming of Christ to judge the living and the dead is a settled part of the Christian Creed. The appearance of the sign of the cross will precede the 2nd coming (Matt24:30). Christ will come on the clouds of heaven and the Archangel, with a great sound of a trumpet, will gather all people for judgment (1Thes4:16). Then all the dead will rise in the flesh (Jhn5:28, 29) who died by different methods (Rev20:11-13) while those who will be alive and remain until the coming of the Lord, will all be changed (1Thes4:15-17; 1Cor15:51, 52). Therefore, the resurrection of the body is a must for judgment (Isa26:19; Dan12:2) since man will be judged as one being of body and spirit. In the resurrection, all these bodies will be spiritual not physical (Matt22:30-32) to live eternally either in eternal joy at the kingdom or eternal condemnation at hell… and this will be determent by the general resurrection.
Time of keeping silent and speaking out:
+ The Bible says, “To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven; … A time to keep silence, and a time to speak” (Ecc3:1,7). The wise is he who knows when to speak and when to keep silent, who knows to differentiate between the suitable time to talk and the suitable time to be silent, and who is able to control his tongue, and his speech. When he speaks, he is able to select every word to avoid stumbling. Such a man was described in the Bible by St. James saying, “If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body” (Jam3:2). Thus, controlling the tongue is the measure of human perfection.
