Christ the King

He gained the victory over all the forces of hell, and he now rules the universe by his grace. He will return as victor and judge—to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom shall have no end. Today we celebrate Jesus' kingship, his perfect rule in our hearts and over all creation.  
Saints Triumphant

He’s the God of the living
When God calls himself their God—the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, the God of Jacob—God does not consider those men to be a thing of the past, as though those men are out of existence.  To God those men are not dead. They are alive. God received their souls at death. He will put their souls and bodies back together at the end of this age. “He is not the God of the dead, but of the living, for to him all are alive.”
