The Certainity of the Lord’s Second Coming

by Cyrus Gesulga

  1. CyrusLike people of old when they were warned, “because I will do this unto thee. Prepare to meet thy God,” so also we must prepare to meet our Lord as he is surely coming again! (Amos 4;12; Rev. 22:7,20).
  2. The Lord promised His disciples that He would come again when He said, “I will come  again and receive you unto Myself” (John 14:1-4).
  3. The promise was reiterated at the ascension of the Lord Jesus Christ, when the two men in white apparel told the disciples. “This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen Him go into heaven” (Acts 1:9-11).
  4. His appearing will be witnessed by all (Matt. 26:63,64; Mark 14:61, 62; Rev. 1:7,8).

To a Christian, the Second Appearing or the Coming of Jesus Christ is the one hope, the hope that saves us and gives us assurance of eternal life in heaven (Eph. 4:4; Rom. 8:24, 25; James 1:12; 2 Cor. 5:1; 2 Tim. 1:9-12; Titus 1:2; 3:7).

Thus this hope is the  Christian’s:

But how sad for the unbelievers and disobedient persons when the  Second Appearing or Coming of the Lord will seal their eternal destiny to punishment in hell, “into the fire that never shall be quenched: Where the worm dieth not, and the fire is not  quenched” (Mark 9:43-49; Matt. 25:41,46).

We call upon all our friends and fellow human beings to know that Jesus is coming  again and he may come today: “Are You ready?” The invitation to be ready is extended now because tomorrow may be too late. Accept the invitation now (Matt. 11:28-30; 2 Cor. 6:1, 2; James 4:13,14).

Remember the offer of salvation is for all men, but the  recipients are only those who obey Him! (Heb. 5:8-9).

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.
