During the Last Judgment, all will be resurrected. Those who were in purgatory will have already been purged, meaning they would have already been released into Heaven, and so like those in Heaven and Hell will resurrect with their bodies. These differences may only be apparent and not actual due to differing theological terminology and tradition. The Eastern Orthodox Church teaches that there are two judgments: This judgment is generally believed to occur on the fortieth day after death.
Although in modern times some have attempted to introduce the concept of soul sleep into Orthodox thought about life after death, it has never been a part of traditional Orthodox teaching, and it even contradicts the Orthodox understanding of the intercession of the Saints.
Eastern Orthodoxy teaches that salvation is bestowed by God as a free gift of Divine grace , which cannot be earned, and by which forgiveness of sins is available to all. However, the deeds done by each person are believed to affect how he will be judged, following the Parable of the Sheep and the Goats. How forgiveness is to be balanced against behavior is not well-defined in scripture, judgment in the matter being solely Christ's. Similarly, although Orthodoxy teaches that salvation is obtained only through Christ and his Church, the fate of those outside the Church at the Last Judgment is left to the mercy of God and is not declared.
The theme of the Last Judgment is extremely important in Orthodoxy. Traditionally, an Orthodox church will have a fresco or mosaic of the Last Judgment on the back western wall see the 12th-century mosaic pictured at the top of this page so that the faithful, as they leave the services, are reminded that they will be judged by what they do during this earthly life. The icon of the Last Judgment traditionally depicts Christ Pantokrator , enthroned in glory on a white throne, surrounded by the Theotokos Virgin Mary , John the Baptist , Apostles , saints and angels.
Beneath the throne the scene is divided in half with the "mansions of the righteous" John Separating the two is the River of fire which proceeds from Jesus' left foot. For more detail, see below. The theme of the Last Judgment is found in the funeral and memorial hymnody of the Church, and is a major theme in the services during Great Lent. It is also found in the hymns of the Octoechos used on Saturdays throughout the year. Lutherans do not believe in any sort of earthly millennial kingdom of Christ either before or after his second coming on the last day. Particularly among those Protestant groups who adhere to a millennialist eschatology, the Last Judgment is said to be carried out before the Great White Throne by Jesus Christ to either eternal life or eternal consciousness in the lake of fire at the end of time.
Salvation is granted by grace based on the individual's surrender and commitment to Jesus Christ. A second particular judgment they refer to as the Bema Seat judgement occurs after or as salvation is discerned when awards are granted based on works toward heavenly treasures. Nevertheless, the body is not fully redeemed until after Death is destroyed after the Great Tribulation. Protestant Millennialism falls into roughly two categories: Premillennialist Christ's second coming precedes the millennium and Postmillennialist which sees Christ's second coming as occurring after the millennium.
Dispensational premillennialism generally holds that Israel and the Church are separate. It also widely holds to the pretribulational return of Christ, which believes that Jesus will return before a seven-year Tribulation followed by an additional return of Christ with his saints. Although the Last Judgment is preached by a great part of Christian mainstream churches; the Esoteric Christian traditions like the Essenes and Rosicrucians , the Spiritualist movement , Christian Science , and some liberal theologies reject the traditional conception of the Last Judgment, as inconsistent with an all-just and loving God , in favor of some form of universal salvation.
Max Heindel taught that when the Day of Christ comes, marking the end of the current fifth or Aryan epoch, the human race will have to pass a final examination or last judgment, where, as in the Days of Noah ,  the chosen ones or pioneers, the sheep , will be separated from the goats or stragglers,  by being carried forward into the next evolutionary period, inheriting the ethereal conditions of the New Galilee in the making. Nevertheless, it is emphasized that all beings of the human evolution will ultimately be saved in a distant future as they acquire a superior grade of consciousness and altruism.
At the present period, the process of human evolution is conducted by means of successive rebirths in the physical world  and the salvation is seen as being mentioned in Revelation 3: However, this western esoteric tradition states—like those who have had a near-death experience —that after the death of the physical body, at the end of each physical lifetime and after the life review period which occurs before the silver cord is broken , it occurs a judgment , more akin to a Final Review or End Report over one's life , where the life of the subject is fully evaluated and scrutinized.
In art, the Last Judgment is a common theme in medieval and renaissance religious iconography. Like most early iconographic innovations, its origins stem from Byzantine art , although it was a much less common subject than in the West during the Middle Ages. In the 15th century it also appeared as the central section of a triptych on altarpieces , with the side panels showing heaven and hell, as in the Beaune Altarpiece or a triptych by Hans Memling.
The usual composition has Christ seated high in the centre, flanked by angels and the Virgin Mary and John the Evangelist who are supplicating on behalf of the souls being judged in what is called a Deesis group in Orthodoxy. Saint Michael is often shown, either weighing souls on scales or directing matters, and there might be a large crowd of saints, angels, and the saved around the central group. At the bottom of the composition a crowd of souls are shown, often with some rising from their graves.
Last Judgment - Wikipedia
These are being sorted and directed by angels into the saved and the damned. Almost always the saved are on the viewer's left so on the right hand of Christ , and the damned on the right. The saved are led up to heaven , often shown as a fortified gateway , while the damned are handed over to devils who herd them down into hell on the right; the composition therefore has a circular pattern of movement. Often the damned disappear into a Hellmouth , the mouth of a huge monster, an image of Anglo-Saxon origin.
The damned often include figures of high rank, wearing crowns, mitres and often the Papal tiara during the lengthy periods when there were antipopes , or in Protestant depictions.
Bible Verses about Judgment Day
There may be detailed depictions of the torments of the damned. Included in this fresco is his self-portrait, as St. Bartholomew 's flayed skin. As a variable cluster of 96 painted portraits of people found on the World Wide Web, the protagonists can interchange their status within the composition. The image in Eastern Orthodox icons has a similar composition, but usually less space is devoted to Hell, and there are often a larger number of scenes; the Orthodox readiness to label figures with inscriptions often allows more complex compositions.
There is more often a large group of saints around Christ which may include animals , and the hetoimasia or "empty throne", containing a cross, is usually shown below Christ, often guarded by archangels; figures representing Adam and Eve may kneel below it or below Christ.

A distinctive feature of the Orthodox composition, especially in Russian icons, is a large band leading like a chute from the feet of Christ down to Hell; this may resemble a striped snake or be a "river of Fire" coloured flame red. If it is shown as a snake, it attempts to bite Adam on the heel, but as he is protected by Christ is unsuccessful. The sequence of events according to the most commonly held belief is the annihilation of all creatures, resurrection of the body, and the judgment of all sentient creatures.
It is a time where everyone would be shown his or her deeds and actions with justice. The exact time when these events will occur is unknown, however there are said to be major  and minor signs  which are to occur near the time of Qiyammah End time. It is believed that prior to the time of Qiyammah , two dangerous, evil tribes called Yajooj and Majooj are released from a dam-resembling wall that Allah makes stronger everyday.
Other signs being the coming of Isa bin Maryam Jesus appearance of Antichrist masih Dajjal ,the sun rising from the west and the animal who will warn the mankind Beast of the Earth. Also other signs like the blowing of the first trumpet by an archangel israfil , the coming of rain of mercy that will cause human to grow from the last remain of a back bone. Belief in Judgment Day is considered a fundamental tenet of faith by all Muslims. It is one of the six articles of faith. The trials and tribulations associated with it are detailed in both the Quran and the hadith , sayings of the Prophet Muhammad.
Hence they were added in the commentaries of the Islamic expositors and scholarly authorities such as al-Ghazali , Ibn Kathir , Ibn Majah , Muhammad al-Bukhari , and Ibn Khuzaimah who explain them in detail. Every human, Muslim and non-Muslim alike, is believed to be held accountable for their deeds and are believed to be judged by God accordingly. In Judaism , beliefs vary about a last day of judgment for all mankind. Some rabbis hold that there will be such a day following the resurrection of the dead.
Excluded from judgment?
Others hold that this accounting and judgment happens when one dies. Still others hold that the last judgment only applies to the gentiles goyim and not the Jewish people. The Bab and Baha'u'llah taught that there is one unfolding religion of one God and that once in about every years a new messenger prophet, Rasul al-Nabii, or as Bahais call them, Manifestation of God , comes to mankind to renew the Kingdom of God on earth and establish a new Covenant between humanity and God.
Each time a new Manifestation of God comes it is considered the Day of Judgement, Day of Resurrection, or 'the Last Hour'  for the believers and unbelievers of the previous Manifestation of God.
1 Corinthians 11:31
The Bab told of the judgment:. Rather, the resurrection of all shall occur in the form of those that are living in that age. If they belong to paradise, they shall be believers, if to hell, they shall be unbelievers. There is no denying that upon the Day of Resurrection, each and every thing shall be raised to life before God, may he be praised and glorified.
For God shall originate that creation and then cause it to return. He has decreed the creation of all things, and he shall raise them to life again. God is powerful over all things. Also, the coming of The Bab is the promised Mahdi and Qaim , and the coming of Baha'u'llah is the return of Christ through His Revelation, which respectively signify the Day of Judgement foretold by Muhammad  and the Day of Resurrection foretold by the Bayan. Baha'u'llah wrote in the Kitab-i-Aqdas: Also, in the Kitab-i-Iqan , Baha'u'llah revealed that every Dispensation's Messenger is rejected using the Scriptures of the past  because "every subsequent Revelation hath abolished the manners, habits, and teachings that have been clearly, specifically, and firmly established by the former Dispensation".
It is noteworthy to call to mind the Hadith of one who asked an A'immah about meeting the Qa'im. The Imam asked him if he knew who his Imam was to which the man responded "it is you". All the Prophets of God have appeared there. The religions of God have been promulgated, the teachings of God have been spread, and the law of God founded in the East. Also, Abdu'l-Baha wrote that the Manifestations of God have claircognizance;  however, the Prophet to come will not be a Universal Manifestation. Furthermore, Abdu'l-Baha stated that more than one Prophet could arise after the year period Who have direct Revelation.
In English, crack of doom is an old term used for the Day of Judgement, referring in particular to the blast of trumpets signalling the end of the world in Chapter 8 of the Book of Revelation. A "crack" had the sense of any loud noise, preserved in the phrase "crack of thunder",  and Doom was a term for the Last Judgement , as Doomsday still is.
The phrase is famously used by William Shakespeare in Macbeth , where on the heath the Three Witches show Macbeth the line of kings that will issue from Banquo:. Act 4, scene 1, — - meaning that Banquo's line will endure until the Judgement Day, flattery for King James I , who claimed descent from Banquo. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

In the New Testament the Parousia , or coming of Christ as Judge of the world, is an oft-repeated doctrine. The Saviour Himself not only foretells the event but graphically portrays its circumstances Matthew The Apostles Malachi peter phophet labour give a most prominent place to this doctrine in their preaching Acts Besides the name Parusia parousia , or Advent 1 Corinthians The time of the Second Coming is spoken of as 'that Day' 2 Timothy 4: The belief in the general judgment has prevailed at all times and in all places within the Church.
It is contained as an article of faith in all the ancient creeds: From thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead' Apostles' Creed. The two shall come again with glory to judge both the living and the dead' Nicene Creed. Though this idea is interwoven with the eschatological teachings of those writers, it in no way detracted from their belief in a universal world-judgment.
Patristic testimony to this dogma is clear and unanimous. The Everything Jesus Book: His Life, His Teachings.

We are further taught by it that there is an intermediate state between death and the resurrection, in which the soul does not sleep in unconsciousness, but exists in happiness or misery till the resurrection, when it shall be reunited to the body and receive its final reward.

Is my number 1 best movie ever till today the best of the best epic movie of all time.
T2 was nominated for 4. Oscars the only movie of the franchise was nominated for an Oscar. If you watch T2 carefully and follow the story you never got bored and you are very entertained. This movie kicks ass! I love the hospital scenes mostly at night, the Cyberdyne building action sequences and of course steel mill action sequences are perfect for this film.
This film deals with a lot of action, sci-fi and does involves a lot of paradox past travel. There is a lot of explosions and automatic weapons used in the movie and they are used well thousands of bullets are fired and explosive projectiles are fired at the police cars. Arnold Schwarzenegger as the good terminator T did an awesome Terrific real job, he acted believably as one of his best characters I ever saw on screen. Terminator walks to the front of the building and kicks a desk out a window.
Than ignores the police's order to surrender and fires a M Minigun with Chainsaw grip at the police cars below, avoiding the humans. The helicopter pilot moves away.
Terminator than uses a M79 grenade launcher to destroy two more vehicles. Its heads-up display indicates no human casualties. The film has a heart and is the best film in the world. Robert Patrick as T is "a mimetic Polly-alloy" or "liquid metal. The truck chase scene is awesome and the crash is also awesome. The truck that hit in to another column in the canal and explodes, T emerges as a shiny, featureless, liquid metal figure. Its features become more pronounced and its colors return to normal, returning to the form of the unharmed pseudo-cop is awesome.
It shows what his character can do. Linda Hamilton is the only Sarah Connor she acted her character perfectly here she played her character genius and very convincing and real, tough beyond all belief and completely focused on preventing the nuclear war and ensuring John's safety.
Sarah Connor is her best performance ever in the both Terminator films. Little out of her mind with paranoia and anger: Edward Furlong, is the only John Connor for me, is not bad himself as the extroverted kid who's confused by the fact that everyone except his mom told him his entire upbringing was based on a lie. The bit players all do their jobs well. Earl Boen plays the semi-sadistic mental hospital warden Dr. Silberman from the first film The Terminator that stands between Sarah Connor and her son until the T makes a chilling entrance.
Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton, Edward Furlong and Robert Patrick did there best acting performances, those actors who played there characters are beloved till this days and Terminator 2 has since been ranked as one of the greatest action, science fiction sequel films of all time. Terminator special effects were designed by Stan Winston R. The film is absolutely filled with great, classic moments.
T2 is James Cameron masterpiece. This wouldn't be an action movie without some action. James Cameron writes, produces and directs brilliantly this film. Brad Fiedel does a perfect music score to the film. American rock band Guns N' Roses wrote a single for this movie "You Could Be Mine" and Schwarzenegger appeared in the music video as T in the music video for this movie. The chopper scene that crashed in to a SWAT van and explodes was awesome. The CGI and special effects are awesome. This movie is what it is, a perfect 10, because it takes the vision of one of the most imaginative directors on Earth, and realizes them almost perfectly with all the tools that fit the task actors, stunts, puppetry, models and special effects designed from Stan Winston.
