I believe this to be true. If you believe that Christ ascended into Heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again to judge the living and the dead. (Apostles’ Creed)
Anyway we look at it Justice is a matter of urgent concern in our nation, from the streets to the halls of the Supreme Court. We long for a just world, yet we live in a world marred by sin and it’s affects. We recognize the gap between how things are and how things should be. We may hope for systemic reforms, new laws, and better leaders and judges for the good of our society. But no legislation, election, or political appointment can satisfy the ache in our hearts for true rights and justice. We long for the Judge of a,, earth to do what is right (Genesis 18:25).
“No legislation, election, or political appointment can satisfy the ache in our hearts for true righteousness and justice.”
The ancient Creed affirms the triune God’s glorious work in the past, but it also stirs our weary hearts to trust God’s promises in the present and to hope for the righteousness and everlasting life. One glorious affirmation powerfully expresses the God-man’s past present, and future work: He died at on the cross in three days rose again and ascended into Heaven, and is seated of the Father. He will come again to judge the living and the dead.
We can rightly celebrate the mystery and wonder of Jesus’s incarnation. We remember that if he died for our sins and then defeated death on the third day according to the Scriptures and it doesn’t end there. The Apostles’ Creed and the Bew Testament -teaches Christ’s attention into heaven, his present work of intercession, and his glorious return. He is our exalted King our seated Priest and is coming to Judge all.
People ask me why I am always happy and have a smile on my face. The truth is I would rather believe in something positive than something negative.
“I would rather stand with God and be judged by the world than stand with the world and be judged by God”
