THE SECOND COMING OF JESUS

HOW WILL THE PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD  BE ABLE TO SEE JESUS WITH HIS SECOND COMING?

ANSWER: As His Spirit is coming down from heaven , your spirit will be going up from this world to meet the Lord in the air , your spirit will leave your body without you going through a physical death. As Spirits all will be at the same place .

THINGS TO REMEMBER:

  • It will only be the Christians who were living a righteous, holy life who’s spirits are going to leave their bodies at that moment of time as described as the second coming of Jesus. Some people call this :” The rapture “
  • Jesus is Spirit and will only be seen by those righteous Christians who are in their spiritual bodies
  • The unrighteous Christians will not see Jesus and will still be in their physical bodies in this world , with the wicked and unbelievers to go through another period of punishment .           ( what will be happening with them, you will find in another teaching)
  • Your physical body will NOT be taken up , only your spirit and you will have a spiritual body as you have a physical body to be able to be seen and be able to live in this world , you also will have a spiritual body which could only be seen by the other spirits in the same spiritual form.

IT AL BEGINS THE MOMENT YOU SURRENDER , WHEN YOU REPENT , BELIEVING THE GOOD NEWS ABOUT JESUS AS THE SON OF GOD

Rom 10:8 But what does it say? “The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart,” that is, the message concerning faith that we proclaim:
Rom 10:9 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
Rom 10:10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.

REMEMBER!

1)YOU DID NOTHING TO GET SAVED FROM THE WRATH OF GOD , THE ONLY THING YOU HAD TO DO, WAS TO BELIEVE AND TO REPENT DECLARING THAT IT IS TRUE THAT JESUS IS THE SON OF GOD WHO CAME FROM HEAVEN , WHO DIED FOR YOUR PAST SINS – COMITTED UNDER THE FIRST COVENANT – WAS KILLED BY THE UNBELIEVER BUT WAS RAISED BY GOD AND SITS ON HIS THRONE AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD .
2) YOU HAVE BEEN BORN AGAIN – A SPIRITUAL BIRTH .
3) THIS NEW SPIRITUAL BABY IN THE OLD PHYSICAL BODY MUST GROW NOW!
4) YOU HAVE BEEN MADE RIGHTEOUS BY THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF JESUS, BUT NOW YOU MUST STAY RIGHTEOUS.

HOW DO YOU HOLD ON TO YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS?
ANSWER: THIS IS A LIFELONG TASK AND YOUR PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY TO STAY RIGHTEOUS AND HOLY. For you to be able to see the Lord , you must be, as the LORD is ,Righteous and Holy.

YOU MUST BECOME LIKE JESUS, YOU MUST LIVE LIKE JESUS DID WHEN HE WAS IN THIS WORLD.

THE TRANSFORMATION BEGINS WHEN HAVE RECEIVED JESUS AS YOUR LORD AND SAVIOR AND JESUS HAS CLEANSED YOU FROM YOUR PAST SINS THE DAY YOU WERE BORN AGAIN,

Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.”
Rom 8:29 For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters.
Rom 8:30 And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.
2Co 3:18 And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.
1Pe_2:21 To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps.
1Jn_2:6 Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did.

WITH THE SECOND COMING OF JESUS YOUR BODY WILL BE CHANGED INTO THIS GLORIOUS SPIRITUAL BODY:

Php 3:20 But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ,
Rom_8:11 And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you.
Php 3:21 who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body.

1Co 15:42 So will it be with the resurrection of the dead. The body that is sown is perishable, it is raised imperishable;
1Co 15:43 it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power;
1Co 15:44 it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body.
1Co 15:45 So it is written: “The first man Adam became a living being”; the last Adam, a life-giving spirit.
1Co 15:46 The spiritual did not come first, but the natural, and after that the spiritual.
1Co 15:47 The first man was of the dust of the earth; the second man is of heaven.
1Co 15:48 As was the earthly man, so are those who are of the earth; and as is the heavenly man, so also are those who are of heaven.
1Co 15:49 And just as we have borne the image of the earthly man, so shall we bear the image of the heavenly man.
1Co 15:50 I declare to you, brothers and sisters, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable.
1Co 15:51 Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed–
1Co 15:52 in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.
1Co 15:53 For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality.
1Co 15:54 When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory.”

1Th 4:15 According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep.
1Th 4:16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.
1Th 4:17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.

WE SHALL BE LIKE HIM , FOR WE SHALL SEE HIM AS HE IS
1Jn 3:2 Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.

PURIFY YOURSELVES AS HE IS PURE
1Jn 3:3 All who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure.
