Second Coming of Jesus Christ

Second Coming of Jesus Christ

Second Coming of Jesus Christ

No one knows when is the second coming of Jesus Christ. It is plagued by many false teachings. Many prediction books have even been written saying the exact day when Jesus’ return is going to happen. These books mislead a lot of people and they may even sell a lot of copies as we all welcome all these hype too soon.

But one thing is certain : When someone predicts the day or time of Jesus Christ’s second coming, it is wrong in itself. Do you know why? Because only God the Father knows when the second Coming of Jesus will happen – Yes, even Jesus doesn’t know when this second coming is going to happen.

Jesus told His disciples: “No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” “Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding with the hand mill; one will be taken and the other left.” “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come.” (Matthew 24:36, 40 & 42)

We should keep watch

We can either stay idle and simply wait for Jesus coming but that is not Jesus expects from us. Jesus wants us to “keep watch.” This is done by knowing what the Bible reveals about upcoming events and comparing those to what we is happening these days, around the globe. 100 biblical passages discuss the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.

S-E-C-O-N-D

S – Sudden :

Only Father knows the correct time. And its to happen very suddenly, quickly – just as a lightning flash on sky. Matthew 24:27 says, “For as lightning that comes from the east is visible even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.”

E – Essential :

Second coming of Jesus Christ is one of the main pillars of Christian faith. When the time is ripe, Jesus The King is to come again in all the glory for the final judgement.

C – Christ’s Final Judgement :

As Bible says Jesus will be the final judge of the world (John 5:22, Acts 10:42 and 2Timothy 4:1). Some of the additional verses describing the second coming, resurrection of the dead, millennium, and final judgment are located in Acts 17:31, 1Thessalonians 4:13-5:11 and Hebrews 10:27.

O – Obvious :

Billions of people live on Earth. Only God knows what percentage are true Christians. So will the other 600,000,000 people vanish from the earth simultaneously according to Matthew 24:40? All others except Christians, are they going to perish?

The condemnation applies only to people who have had the Gospel presented to them, so that they fully understand the ideas, and then they reject it anyway. If they have never heard it, they are not condemned. And if they don’t understand it, they are not condemned. Each religion has its set of laws, laws for the good of humanity. People who follow those, are indeed following the same principles of Christ’s teachings and in a way they are also Christians.

N – No One Knows :

No one knows when the second coming is to happen. In Matthew 24:36, Jesus said only God the Father knows when. God is outside time. God already knows every prediction regarding Jesus’ return that has ever been or will ever be made. Since Jesus said that no one knows about that day but the Father, its simple, NO ONE REALLY KNOWS!

D – Doubters Beware :

As the second coming of Jesus Christ closes in on us, by that time, there will be increasing and widespread doubt about whether Jesus was even real. People will start wondering if God really exists and many believers will leave the Christian faith (2 Thessalonians 2:1-4, 1 Timothy 4:1-2, and 2 Peter 2:1-3). Do you think we’re already seeing these signs?

Well, I don’t really know and I can’t make a guess on it. But I know one thing. The immense love of God for us is making Him postpone this second coming of Jesus Christ, giving us the precious extra time to turn back to God.

Prayer For Anger

Prayer For Anger

Prayer in time of Anger

Lord Jesus, there is anger in my heart and I cannot root it out.
I know that I should calm down and offer the hurt and disappointment to You
But my emotion is running away with me.
Help me to overcome this weakness and give me peace of heart as well as mind.
Let me learn from this experience and grow into a better human being.
Amen.

Prayer for Anger

O Lord, must I fear Your wrath?
Retribution is Yours by right!
May I never dishonour Your Divinity,
My soul seeking to maintain Your love.
Shape my being into earnest kindness,
A reflection of Your perfection.
Grant me the grace of self-control,
That I may not display any anger.
Should I have such an outburst,
Instantly remind me to seek redress,
For such is offensive to You.
Anger is Yours alone to avenge!
Amen.

Conquer Recession

Conquer Recession

It takes strong faith to launch a major enterprise during a time of recession. One man who was a passionate lover of God did so. And the profit he made was purely amazing – one hundred percent! He became so rich that some even started envying him! Well, the man’s name was Isaac and his enterprise, agro products (Genesis 26:12,13,14).

Today, recession has become a familiar term since nations around the world are affected by it. Media analysts affirm that nations like India and China are successfully tackling this giant. World leaders are searching to find strong measures to lift up the economy.

The Bible speaks of God as One who loves to see people and nations progress. He is a God of increase and growth. He wants His children to prosper in every area, including their finances. So He set specific principles that usher in productivity. The principle of giving is one among that.

In 2 Corinthians 8:1-6, we read about Apostle Paul writing to the Corinthian church about the generous giving of the churches in Macedonia. He says, “…brothers, we want you to know about the grace that God has given the Macedonian churches. Out of the most severe trial, their overflowing joy and their extreme poverty welled up in rich generosity. For I testify that they gave as much as they were able, and even beyond their ability. Entirely on their own, they urgently pleaded with us for the privilege of sharing in this service to the saints. And they did not do as we expected, but they gave themselves first to the Lord and then to us in keeping with God’s will”.

Giving for the expansion of God’s Kingdom is an important aspect of the New Testament church. Whether there is financial crisis or not, we are supposed to give more than our time for the work of proclaiming the Good News and discipling nations.

Like Isaac sowed during a time of recession and had a hundred-fold harvest, you can give during a financial crisis and receive a multiple profit! Some times, you may not feel like giving since the financial inflow is low. But when you give in faith in spite of your feelings, there will surely be a breakthrough.

In Malachi 3:10-12, the Lord says, “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it. I will prevent pests from devouring your crops, and the vines in your fields will not cast their fruit. Then all the nations will call you blessed, for yours will be a delightful land.” God guarantees you His abundance as you do what He asks you to do.

So, if you are sensing a financial meltdown, start applying the giving-principle. God will open new doors for you to have a job, if you have lost your job. He will give you wisdom to work productively, if you are seeking advancement in your job. There may even be surprise gifts from people coming your way!
