Doctrinal Treatises of St. Augustin: Chapter 54
Chapter 54.—Christs Second Coming Does Not Belong to the Past, But Will Take Place at the End of the World.
But what we believe as to Christs action in the future, when He shall come from heaven to judge the quick and the dead, has no bearing upon the life which we now lead here; for it forms no part of what He did upon earth, but is part of what He shall do at the end of the world. And it is to this that the apostle refers in what immediately follows the passage quoted above: “When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with Him in glory.” 1183
