Jesus Second Coming
The Second Coming of Jesus
Christian and non-Christian movements have various views about Jesus’ Second Coming. False prophets tried to predict it. Sadly, some believed them. It’s God’s Secret! As stated by Moses in Deuteronomy 29:29 (NLT) ”The LORD our God has secrets known to no one…”. Jesus’ teachings included details of His Return. He told His Christian Disciples in Matthew 24:36 (ISV)“No one knows when that day or hour will come – not the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father,…”
The birth of Jesus Christ was the first time He came to earth. Prophesied by Old Testament prophets the Messiah King was born. The return will usher Him in as the Millennium King. As a baby, He was born “King of the Jews. Unfortunately, no one noticed or recognized Him as a king.
The King of Kings
This will be a time of rejoicing for some and a time of regret for others. Jesus’ Birth was God’s gift of salvation to every nation. Believers will receive eternal salvation. Those who rejected Him will be given everlasting damnation. First, He came as a humble Lamb. This time He will come as the Powerful Lion of the Tribe of Judah. He will reign as King of Kings and rule as “Lord of Lords.” As stated by Jesus in Romans 14 and 11 “As I live says the Lord every knee shall bow to me and that every tongue shall confess to God.” The Second Advent of Jesus will be the greatest of all supernatural events.
The apostolic ministry of Apostle John left us with supernatural details of His return. While exiled, John of Patmos received a download of the “Book of Revelation” or the “Apocalypse.” It is a book of divine secrets. There are references to Old Testament prophets and 7 apocalyptic events. The events are:
- The 7 churches
- Seven seals
- The 7 trumpets
- 7 spiritual figures
- Seven plagues
- The seven spiritual signs
- Seven final visions
”Surely I come quickly.”
Here is beautiful imagery of the new heaven and earth. Finally, Revelation 22:20 contains Jesus’ last words of warning.”Surely I come quickly.” Do not get “left behind.”
Jesus Is Coming
God’s promises about Jesus’ return are “Yes” and “ Amen.” The Calendar of God is different from man’s calendar. Peter 2 Chapter 3 verse 8 God’s Word Translation Bible states “Dear friends, don’t ignore this fact: One day with the Lord is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like one day.” On God’s schedule, Jesus has been gone a little over 2 days. Be ready, ALWAYS!
Great Christian gospel praise and worship songs also speak of Jesus’ return. “Days of Elijah” written by Robin Mark and recorded by Judy Jacobs refers to Christ’s return. The angels sang at Jesus’ First Coming, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men.” According to John in Revelation 14:2-3(KJV) there will be singing. “…and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps: and they sang as it were a new song before the throne……….”
It will be the “eternal knock-down, drag-out-of-the-earth blow for Satan. Jesus’ Resurrection was only just the beginning. His return will usher in the eternal world order. In other words, a southern gospel quartet sings on online Christian gospel radio about Jesus’ Return “Tell the world. Jesus is Coming Back! Tell the world Jesus is coming soon.”
