Scripture for Today
The Second Coming of Messiah Jesus Christ
The second coming of Christ is referenced many times in scripture:
The second coming is certain to occur.
The very integrity of Christ is at stake in this matter as He declared:
“I come again,” undergirding that with, “if it were not so I would have told you” John 14:2
The Lord’s coming will be literal and it will be personal; note the expression, “the Lord himself” 1 Thes. 4:16. There are passages which mention “comings” of Christ that are representative (i.e., not literal), e.g., his “coming” on Pentecost with the arrival of his kingdom (Mt. 16:28), or via the dispatch of the Spirit to his apostles (Jn. 14:18), in the destruction of Jerusalem (Mt. 24:30), or in a disciplinary fashion (Rev. 2:5).
The Lord will come visibly; His return will be a “revelation” (2 Thes. 1:7), indeed a “manifestation” (1 Jn. 2:28), involving an “appearance” (1 Tim. 6:14; 2 Tim. 4:1, 8; Tit. 2:13; Heb. 9:29).
The second coming of the Lord Jesus will be terminal. The Apostle Paul proclaims that the “coming” of Christ as being “the end at the last trumpet sound.” Death will have been destroyed, and the Lord’s enemies will have been abolished." [1 Corinthians 15:23-24, 52].
Trumpets are often mentioned as a means of calling the assembly together. See Numbers 10:1-3
And many born again believers have faith that the Lord will indeed call His children by or like the sound of a trumpet snatching us out of this world and He will meet us in the clouds like He said:
"We which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord." 1 Thessalonians 4:17
"In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed." 1 Corinthians 15:52
Even so, come Lord Jesus.
