God. Creator. Last Judgment
In the works of Fr. Sergei Bulgakov

The last separation of the sheep and the goats

An individual eschatology of death and of the world beyond the tomb has partially replaced the general eschatology of the second coming. From time to time the sentiment of waiting for the Christ Who comes, the prayer: “Come, Lord Jesus,” burns with a new flame in human souls and illumines them with a glimmer of another world.

Orthodox Eschatology

The Orthodox doctrine concerning the Last Judgment, in so far as it is revealed in scripture, is common to the whole Christian world. The last separation of the sheep and the goats, death and hell, damnation, eternal pain for some, the kingdom of heaven, eternal beatitude, the contemplation of Our Lord for others — this is the end of humanity's earthly road. … Every man who confesses his sins knows that he deserves to be condemned of God: “If thou, Lord, shouldst mark iniquities, who could stand?” (Psa 130:3).

The consoling Spirit restores the sorely-wounded creature

13 For judgment is without mercy to the one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment. Притч 21, 13. Мф 6, 15.

Through the Mother of God the Holy Spirit shares in the Last Judgment. The consoling Spirit heals and restores the sorely-wounded creature.

At the Last Judgment, when Our Lord Himself, meek and lowly of heart, will be the Judge of Truth, rendering justice in the name of the Father, how shall we find mercy? … the Mother of God and of the whole human race. … the Mother of God, the «Pneumatophore», is the living intermediary of the Holy Spirit, and through her the Holy Spirit shares in the Last Judgment. … the consoling Spirit heals and restores the sorely-wounded creature. He grants pardon by divine pity.
