The Second Coming of Jesus

The second coming of Jesus Christ is near! Believe it or not, Jesus will come back, and on that day, he will judge both the living and the dead. In a world often filled with chaos and uncertainty, the second coming of Jesus holds profound significance for many. It is a beacon of hope, a promise that transcends time and resonates deeply within the hearts of believers. The anticipation of the second coming is like waiting for a long-lost friend to return. It’s a time of reflection and preparation, where believers engage in self-examination, seeking to align their lives with the teachings of Jesus. Some may harbor a feeling of impending doom, but it shouldn’t be about that; rather, it’s an opportunity for self-introspection and growth. As we wait, the words of Philippians 4:5 (NIV) resonate, urging believers to "Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near." This waiting involves aligning our lives with the teachings of Jesus, growing in faith, and actively pursuing a life reflective of His love. In Matthew 7:24-27 (NIV), Jesus compares those who hear His words and put them into practice to a wise builder who constructs a house on a solid foundation. Building a spiritual foundation means not just listening but embodying His teachings. It's about cultivating a relationship with God, following the guidance of the Holy Spirit, and striving to live a life rooted in faith and righteousness. Throughout preparation for the second coming of Christ, there are times where you may feel doubtful or challenged, yet the Bible continues to offer reassurance. Proverbs 3:5-6 (NIV) instructs believers to "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight." Navigating doubts involves an unwavering trust in God's plan, relying on His wisdom rather than our limited understanding. Even though we as Christians must live out God’s Word and Jesus’s teachings, we have to remember a foundational teaching: salvation through faith, not by works. Ephesians 2:8-9 (NIV) says, “For it is by the grace that you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast.” Our salvation is a gift from God, something that not one of us deserve in the slightest. It is a gift received through faith in Jesus Christ, not based on our own doings on this earth. 


What will the second coming of Christ look like? The book of Revelation delves deeply into what is to be expected during and after the second coming of Christ. After some research, we can put together an ambiguous timeline of the events Revelation talks about. 


1. Revelation 19:11-16 - The Rider on the White Horse: In this passage, a vision of Jesus is portrayed as a conquering warrior riding a white horse. His eyes are described as a fiery flame, and on His head are many crowns. He is clothed in a robe dipped in blood, symbolizing victory and redemption. 


2. Revelation 19:17-21 - The Battle of Armageddon: The Second Coming is associated with a great battle known as Armageddon. Think about this battle as the ultimate confrontation between the forces of good and evil. Of course the battle results in victory for Christ over the enemies of God. The defeat of the beast and the false prophet is imminent in Jesus' name.  

 

3. Revelation 20:1-6 - The Millennial Reign: Following the Second Coming and the defeat of evil, Revelation speaks of a thousand-year reign of Christ, often referred to as the Millennium. During this time, Satan is bound, and the faithful are envisioned to reign with Christ. This period symbolizes a time of peace, justice, and fulfillment of God's promises. 


4. Revelation 20:7-10 - Final Judgment: After the Millennium, Revelation describes the release of Satan for a short time, leading to a final rebellion. However, this rebellion swiftly ceases, and Satan is ultimately cast into the lake of fire. The final judgment then takes place, where all the dead are resurrected and judged according to their deeds. 


5. Revelation 21:1-8 - The New Heaven and New Earth: The Second Coming marks the beginning of a new era. In these verses, a vision of a new heaven and a new earth is presented. God's dwelling place is with humanity, and He wipes away every tear. The old order of things passes away, and God makes all things new. The faithful are promised eternal life, while the unrepentant face eternal separation from God.


Given all of this information, the Second Coming of Christ may come off as daunting or even scary. However, through firm faith and belief in Christ Jesus as your Lord and personal savior, you are saved.
