What Is the Last Judgment?

1. 1Christ’s Second Coming gives the Son of God this gift: to hear the Voice for God proclaim that what is false is false, and what is true has never changed. 2And this the judgment is in which perception ends. 3At first you see a world that has accepted this as true, projected from a now corrected mind. 4And with this holy sight, perception gives a silent blessing and then disappears, its goal accomplished and its mission done.

2. 1The final judgment on the world contains no condemnation. 2For it sees the world as totally forgiven, without sin and wholly purposeless. 3Without a cause, and now without a function in Christ’s sight, it merely slips away to nothingness. 4There it was born, and there it ends as well. 5And all the figures in the dream in which the world began go with it. 6Bodies now are useless, and will therefore fade away, because the Son of God is limitless.

3. 1You who believed that God’s Last Judgment would condemn the world to hell along with you, accept this holy truth: God’s Judgment is the gift of the Correction He bestowed on all your errors, freeing you from them, and all effects they ever seemed to have. 2To fear God’s saving grace is but to fear complete release from suffering, return to peace, security and happiness, and union with your own Identity.

4. 1God’s Final Judgment is as merciful as every step in His appointed plan to bless His Son, and call him to return to the eternal peace He shares with him. 2Be not afraid of love. 3For it alone can heal all sorrow, wipe away all tears, and gently waken from his dream of pain the Son whom God acknowledges as His. 4Be not afraid of this. 5Salvation asks you give it welcome. 6And the world awaits your glad acceptance, which will set it free.

5. 1This is God’s Final Judgment: “You are still My holy Son, for­ever innocent, forever loving and forever loved, as limitless as your Creator, and completely changeless and forever pure. 2Therefore awaken and return to Me. 3I am your Father and you are My Son.”
