of Christs Coming
Does Christ Come at the
Time of Death?
Is Christ coming again?
And if I go and
prepare a place for you, I will come
back and take you to be with me that
you also may be where I am. John 14:3.
How does Paul speak of
So Christ was
sacrificed once to take away the sins of many
people; and he will appear a second time,
not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those
who are waiting for him.
Did the early disciples
think that death would be the second coming of
When Peter say him, he
asked, Lord, what about him? Jesus
answered, If I want him to remain
alive until I return,
what is that to you? You must follow me.
Note From this it
is evident that the early disciples regarded
death and the coming of Christ as two separate
events. Therefore you be also ready: for in
such a hour as you think not the Son of man will
come. Some people say that means death; but
the Word of God does not say it means death.
Death is our enemy, but our Lord has the keys of
Death; He has conquered death, hell and the grave
Christ is the Prince of Life; there is no death
where He is; death flees at His coming; dead
bodies spring to life when he touched them or
spoke to them. Jesus is the resurrection and the
Christ and Angels
At His ascension, how
did the angels say Christ would come again?
After he had said
this, he was taken up before their very eyes, and
a cloud hid him from their sight. They were
looking intently up into the sky as he was going,
when suddenly two men dressed in white stood
beside them. Men of Galilee, they
said, why do you stand here looking up into
the sky? This same Jesus, who was taken from
you into heaven, will come back in the same way
you have seen him go into heaven. Acts
How did Christ Himself
say he would come?
At that time the sign
of the Son of Man will appear in the sky,
and all nations of the earth will mourn. They
will see the Son of Man coming in the
clouds of the sky, with power and great glory.
Apostles John and Paul
How many will see Him
[Christ] when He comes?
Look, he is coming
with the clouds, and every eye will see him,
even those who pierced him; and all the peoples
of the earth will mourn because of him. So shall
it be! Amen.
second coming will be as real s was his first,
and as visible as His ascension, and far more
glorious. To spiritualize our Lords return
is to pervert the obvious meaning of His promise,
I will come again, and nullify the
whole plan of redemption; for the reward of the
faithful of all ages is to be given at the most
glorious of all events.
What demonstration will
accompany His coming?
For the Lord himself
will come down from heaven, with a loud command,
with the voice of the archangel and the trumpet
call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise
1 Thessalonians 4:16.
Michael/Jesus as the archangel.
Jesus Warns of
What warning has Christ
given concerning false views?
At that time if
anyone says to you, Look, here is
Christ! or, There he is! do not
believe it. For false Christs
and false prophets will appear and perform great
signs and miracles to deceive even the elect
if that were possible. See, I have told
you ahead of time. So if anyone tells you, There
he is, out in the desert,
do not go out; or, here he is in
the inner rooms, do not believe
it. Matthew 23-26.
How visible is His
coming to be?
For as lightening
that comes from the east is visible even to the
west, so will it be the coming of the Son of Man.
Note The world will
see Jesus coming from far out in space as a small
cloud around ten days out as the Earth rotates
counterclockwise. Every eye will see Jesus as He
approaches Earth with the Father, Holy Spirit and
the entire heavenly host of angels that will
number in the billions. As the Lord Jesus get
close to the earth He and His angels and the
144,000 servant prophets that accompany Jesus at
His coming will fully engulf the entire planet
with glorious glory that will outshine the sun in
brilliance. The wicked will be slain by the
brilliance of the Lords glory and Satan and
his demons will be shaking from fear of Almighty
God. Oh what a day that will be my friends!
The mighty climax of all the ages will
be the appearance in glory of the
King of kings when He returns to earth to redeem
His waiting children.
