Ques. 52. What comfort is if to thee that, “Christ shall come again to judge the quick and the dead”? Ans. That in all my sorrows and persecutions, with uplifted head I wait for the very same Person, Who before offered Himself for my sake, to the tribunal of God, and has removed all curse from me, to come as judge from heaven: Who shall cast all His and my enemies into everlasting condemnation, and shall translate me with all His chosen ones to Himself into heavenly joys and glory.
