|Matthew 25:31-32 |
31 When the Son of man comes in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then he will sit upon the throne of his glory.
32 Before him will be gathered all nations; and he will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. [This is not a one-time event. The kingdom is inherited by those who crucify their sinful, selfish, human nature on the inward cross of self-denial: translated into the kingdom while still alive on the earth, each man in his own rank and order. The dead are judged individually.]
