Note 1. - "The Supreme Court of the Universe is even now handing down its final decisions for life or death. Christ is even today separating those who, by patient continuance in well-doing, seek for glory, and honour, and immortality, from those who are contentious and obey not the truth, but obey unrighteousness. He is even now drawing the dividing line, which places the sheep on His right hand and the goats on His left." - J. L. Shuler in "The Great Judgment Day."

Note 2. - "It is evident that there must be investigation and decision in judgment before the execution of judgment can take place. That there is to be an investigation of personal cases, and a decision, is very clearly taught in the Scriptures. (Rev. 20:11-13.) That there is a blotting out of sins for some, and a blotting out of names for others, is also plainly stated.

"The judgment in its investigative phase takes place while Christ still mediates for sinners, but with its close Christ's mediatorial work for sinners will also close. Thereafter He will appear with ten thousand of His saints, to execute judgment upon all (Jude 14, 15.)

"When the investigative phase of the judgment is finished, and the sins of God's people have been blotted from the books of record in heaven, and when our High Priest has with His own blood cleansed or justified the sanctuary, then He will put the sins that have defiled the sanctuary upon their originator, whose power will be broken, whose reign will be ended, and who will finally perish in the fires of the last days, at the close of the one thousand years, when Satan, sin, sinners, and death will come to their utter end. Then affliction will never again rise up to blight and curse the fair creation of God." - C. H. Watson in "The Atoning Work of Christ."
