Heidelberg Catechism – Lord’s Day 19
Question 50. Why is it added: And sitteth at the right hand of God?
Because Christ ascended into heaven for this end, that He might there appear as Head of His Church, by whom the Father governs all things.
Question 51. What benefit do we receive from this glory of our Head, Christ?
First, that by His Holy Spirit He sheds forth heavenly gifts in us, His members; then, that by His power He defends and preserves us against all enemies.
Question 52. What comfort is it to thee, that Christ shall come again to judge the quick and the dead?
That in all my sorrows and persecutions, with uplifted head, I look for the selfsame One, who has before offered Himself for me to the judgment of God and removed from me all curse, to come again as Judge from heaven; who shall cast all His and my enemies into everlasting condemnation, but shall take me, with all His chosen ones, to Himself, into heavenly joy and glory.
