The Doctrine of the Last Things
The Bible teaches us that this age will come to an end and that the Lord Jesus Christ will return personally, visibly and bodily to judge all mankind. Those who by God’s grace believe in Him and have served Him will be ushered into His everlasting presence to rejoice in His glory with unspeakable joy. All all who have rejected God’s Son in unbelief and preferred a life of sin over the service of God, however, will be separated from God’s favor forever in hell. There they will suffer unspeakable and eternal agony, being the object of God’s just wrath upon sin (Matt. 25:31–46; Mark 13:26, 27; 2 Cor. 5:10; 2 Thess. 1:8–10; 2 Tim. 4:1, Rev. 20:11–12).
