JUDGEMENT: Individual and General

When we die we are subject to a personal judgement. This is when God shows us all the ways we hurt Him through not loving others as we should. He shows us both what we have done and what we have failed to do.

However, at the end of time, the dead are raised and our souls are rejoined to our glorified bodies just as Jesus appeared after the Resurrection. At this point everyone will face the general or last judgement. Remember several Sundays ago I wrote that our sins affect everyone and everything like ripples on the water? Well, the last judgement is necessary because our sins affect all of humanity. Christ describes this judgement in Mt 25: 31-46.

 

No one knows when this will happen, even Jesus! (Mt 24: 36). So, every time something bad happens you get all manner of people second guessing “Is this the end?” which is why we end up with people outside the Church inventing things like The Rapture and saying “This is The Tribulation“.
