Tuesday: He Will Come Again — 12 Comments

  1. He will come Again is our lesson title reminds me of the famous speech by Douglas MacArthur on March 21 1942 in which he declared, "I came through and I shall return" a promise he made to the troops in the Philippines.
    Jesus says, I have come through death. Until now death was a one way street. The one enters in never came out but I have broken the sting of death.
    “Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last. I am the Living One; I was dead, and now look, I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades.
    I have the keys to unlock as I wish (whenever).
    Douglas MacArthur: On October 20, 1944, a few hours after his troops landed, MacArthur waded ashore onto the Philippine island of Leyte. That day, he made a radio broadcast in which he declared, “People of the Philippines, I have returned!” In January 1945, his forces invaded the main Philippine island of Luzon.
    Jesus, I have returned declares the Lord gather my people together. Lightning (visible), trumpet (audio)What a glorious day it will be.
    And in that day it will be said, “Surely this is our God; we have waited for Him, and He has saved us. This is the LORD for whom we have waited. Let us rejoice and be glad in His salvation.”

    • Regarding he whom will come again, who does the Psalmist tell God's true Church would return?
      Psalm 50:3; My God shall come …

      Whom do God's holy Prophets tell God's true Church would return?
      Amos 4:12 … prepare to meet thy God, O Israel
      Zechariah 14:5 … the Lord my God shall come ...

      It appears that those of the period of the holy scriptures, that is, the patriarchs, the holy prophets and others who accepted God's word that there is only one true God, will be looking for the Lord God to return while, conversely, those of the New Testament era who believe in a trinity will be looking for "Jesus" to come.

      How then should we 21st century "Christians" understand who it is that will "come again"?

      • As to the trinity: The second coming does not split the trinity inasmuch as three divine persons are inseparably und indestructibly are united in one name, as Christ himself has pointed out in His gosple commission. (Matthew 28:19-20)

  2. It is a super an assurance that God will put everything right! But we have to be wise, because although we know He is coming back, we do not know exactly when... "to live like it will take place today, but to plan for a 100 years"...

  3. As i read the kesson above now i see where others get this notion about secret rapture from. Jesus was with the disciples when he ascended into heaven then the angels came and comfort the disciples heart.
    i guess what they dont pay attention to is the fact that Jesus will come again and this time his coming will not be in secret but a very noisy one. In His birth the disciples would have to go in search of him by travelling long milees but when he comes again every eye shall see Him no matter where we are.

  4. If we truly believe that Jesus is coming soon we will live our lives without any attachment to the things of this earth and will do the work that we were call to do. Maranatah, Christ is coming!

  5. I like to remember Jesus said: John 14:3  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, so that where I am, you may be also.

    Jesus is in heaven now and He promised to come fetch us to take us back to heaven with Him.

    To me the important fact is that this world is coming to an end, and only after the 1000 years will we return and then it will be completely renewed, no more evil.
    Jesus' plan is to renew the earth and just as importantly to renew each one of us, imagine a fresh start, now and after the 1000 years! 

  6. The good seed did well in the soil not filled with weeds, rocks, or packed so hard that the seed could not penetrate. From this we can learn how to keep the reality and promise of Jesus' return always before us.

  7. There is something that Jesus did for all and therefore for me too while he was here and before He left and that is that "He died and spilled His blood for all including me." I need to appropriate this blessing in my life every day when I awake and before I go to sleep and whenever I am overwhelmed with the temptation to sin or with trials or with the stresses and burdens of life. It is this blessing that gets me by now and it is this blessing that will see me through until he arrives again in power and great glory.
