        The Old Testament prophet Zechariah was used by God to reveal a great deal about end-time events and the second coming of the Messiah. Zechariah lived and prophesied more than years before Christ’s first coming, yet his prophetic book tells us a great deal about our world of today.   See what the second temple in Honduras will look like Newsroom of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints - The First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has announced the groundbreaking date for the San Pedro Sula Honduras Temple.

        The fact is, all the references in the New Testament about Christ’s second coming are describing the same event just different aspects of it. There’s no biblical support for a two-stage.   The second coming of Christ is in mystery, and by this is meant that his power and presence comes into our lives through signs, symbols, and sacraments in the Church. Christ coming to us in mystery does not mean that he comes into our lives as a problem for us to solve, but as a revelation that confounds us in all our expectations of who God is.

      People today still confuse Jesus' second coming with the rapture of the church, which occurs prior to Jesus' second coming. The rapture is described in I Thessalonians "For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of . Preparing for the Second Coming. No other book of the Bible gives a clearer sequence and detail of the events surrounding the glorious return of Jesus Christ than the two letters Paul writes to a young church at Thessalonica (Greece) who fear that they will be left behind when that great day comes.

As a church layperson that has a deep interest in church development, I believe The Second Coming of the Church is a must read for anyone interested in the role of the church in the 21st century.

Although some readers may feel that Barna's assessment of the viability of the church in its present format is overly pessimistic, his sound research /5(22). “The Second Coming” Learning Resources Church Magazines “The First Coming and the Second Coming of Jesus Christ,” New Era, December “Jesus Christ Will Come Again!” Friend, December “Book of Mormon: Gathering Israel, Preparing for Second Coming,” Ensign, April 50 rows  Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) believe that.

The second coming of Christ is the blessed hope of the church, the grand climax of the gospel. The Saviour's coming will be literal, personal, visible, and worldwide.

When He returns, the righteous dead will be resurrected, and together with the righteous living will be glorified and taken to heaven, but the unrighteous will die. The Book of Mormon clarifies the doctrine of the Second Coming in at least four ways: first, it contains specific prophecies about the last days preceding the Second Coming; second, recorded history in the Nephite record is a type of our day—our modern history echoes Book of Mormon history; third, the prophet-writers of the Book of Mormon saw.

The Second Coming of Christ (Rev ) Introduction Following the parenthetical sections of chapters which described the great harlot system of Babylon, chapter 19 gives us heaven’s perspective of the fall of Babylon.

God's Word assures us of the Second Coming and commands us to know the signs of the times, to remain watchful, and to always be ready for Christ's return - whenever it may be.

This newly redesigned book is a straightforward, in-depth exploration of the key biblical texts regarding the Second Coming: most notably, Christ's longest and most 5/5(4).

They maintain that when we say Christ is coming to take the church out of the world and that He will not return to the earth until the end of the Great Tribulation Period (which obviously is the future seven-year period outlined in the Book of Daniel), we are saying that we believe in a second and third coming of Christ.

They accuse us of. A Wake-Up Call. The coronavirus is a God-given wake-up call to be ready for the second coming of Christ. Even though the history of the Christian church is littered with failed predictions of the end of the world, it remains true that Jesus Christ is coming back.

Yes, the greatest event in modern history may happen in YOUR LIFETIME, the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, to establish real world peace among.

The Bible, the Book of Mormon, the Doctrine and Covenants, and the Pearl of Great Price all record various prophesies about the Second Coming.

The following is a brief, incomplete summary of what Mormons believe will be the major events prior to Jesus' return and His ushering in the Millennium, a thousand years of peace and righteousness where.

And what makes Paul’s treatment of the second coming in 2 Thessalonians so helpful is that he deals with timing issues, with the event itself and what it will be like, and with its impact on our present suffering, and its misuses by some in the church.

In other words, Paul’s approach to the second coming relates to our experiences right now. The Second Coming of Christ will not occur until the Great Tribulation when many believe Jesus will return to smite the Antichrist. Dr Meyer. Nearly every book in the New Testament contains information about the Second Coming, and there are several references to it in the Old Testament.

Pay close attention to those lesser known verses. Just as the Old Testament is saturated with prophecies concerning Christ’s first advent, so both testaments are filled with references to the Second Coming of Christ.

One scholar has estimated that there are 1, references to Christ’s Second Coming in the Old Testament, where 17 books give it prominence. At the Second Coming, He will descend to the Mount of Olives as a prelude to His earthly reign. At the Rapture, Jesus will bring a blessing for His saints.

At the Second Coming, He will bring judgment for those who have rejected Him. The Rapture could occur at any moment. The Second Coming will occur seven years later.

At least New Testament verses refer to His second coming to judge men. There are 7, verses in the New Testament. One out of every 25 touches on the theme of Christ’s return.

The doctrine of the second coming of Christ is found in 23 of the 27 New Testament books. The Second Coming of Christ is actually made up of two parts or two phases. The first phase of the second coming is called the RAPTURE (for a detailed study on the rapture see the study entitled, Will The Church Go Through The Tribulation?).

The second phase of the second coming takes place about seven years later.Matt. – many sects try to predict the coming of Christ. But Jesus says, “no one but the Father knows the day and the hour.” The sects that try to predict Christ’s coming ignore these words.

Matt. – we should also note that Jesus’ statement does not mean than Jesus does not know the day of His Second Coming.Notes. 1 John A. McLean, “Structure of the Book of Revelation,” in Mal Couch, ed., Dictionary of Premillennial Theology (Grand Rapids, MI: Kregel Publications, ), 2 “God does not intend the church to be present on the earth for any part of the 70 weeks or years that He has determined specifically for Israel and Jerusalem [Dan.
