There is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known (Matt 10:26) at that time, for the Lord will expose our sins and present them to the gaze of all. What, then, shall we do when that terrible tribunal appears, with a river of fire and irrefutable accusations and incontrovertible sentences, and we stand before it trembling? O what shall we do, brethren, when there is no one to stand up for us or assist us, neither father, nor mother, nor son, nor daughter nor grandchildren? For then every man will have his own anxiety, and will not be able to take care of others. A brother cannot help us there, nor can a sister, nor a friend, nor a relative, nor a neighbour, nor a wise man, nor an orator, nor an acquaintance, nor gold nor anything belonging to man; all of these will seem insubstantial when confronted with the fear and dread of damnation. Each man to be judged will stand alone with great fear and trembling, whether he be rich or poor, whether small or great, whether master or subject, whether man or woman, whether old or young, whether famous or unknown, even he who wears the robes of royalty. Each will be supported only by his own deeds, whether they be unto justification or condemnation. The God of gods, the Lord, hath spoken, and He hath called the earth from the rising of the sun and unto the setting thereof. Out of Sion is the magnificence of His comeliness. God shall come visibly, yea, our God, and shall not keep silence. Fire shall blaze before Him, and round about Him shall there be a mighty tempest (Ps 49:1-4). Clouds and darkness are round about Him; righteousness and judgement are the establishment of His throne. Fire shall go before Him, and shall burn up His enemies round about (Ps 96:2-3). For He cometh to judge the earth; He shall judge the world with righteousness (Ps 95:12-13). The just Judge will examine the records of the deeds which each of us has done. The good and the just He will place on His right; He will invite them to enjoy the kingdom which was prepared for them as the blessed of the Father, and He will conduct them to eternal rejoicing (therein). The wicked and the sinful He will place on His left; He will turn away from them as from the damned, and will send them away into that inextinguishable fire which was prepared for the demons, and will condemn them to eternal torment.
