Jesus Christ Is Coming Again!
Adventure 12: God's Plan for the Future
What is meant by the phrases 'the Second Coming' and 'the Day of the Lord'?
These are ways of talking about the time when Jesus Christ will come back and judge the world. Acts 17:31 – Because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead.
This Truth Makes
Jesus Christ is coming back to Earth again! When He does, He will come...
SUDDENLY: 1 Corinthians 15:52 – In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
PERSONALLY: 1 Thessalonians 4:16 – For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel,
and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first.
VISIBLY: Revelation 1:7 – Behold, He is coming with clouds, and every eye will see Him, even they who pierced Him. And all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of Him. Even so, Amen.
BODILY: John 3:2 – This man came to Jesus by night and said to Him, “Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher come from God; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him.”
When Christians speak about the “Second Coming of Christ,” they do not refer just to one event that happens in one moment of time. It certainly begins with a moment, but there are many other events that take place during the “Day of the Lord.” When we talk about “Christ’s return,” we are talking about a whole series of events that begin the moment Christ returns.
