Tag Archive: Second Coming


Moving ever closer….

I truly believe we are living in the End Times. This became even more apparent to me when I heard a sermon by Pastor John Hagee, senior pastor of Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Texas. Here is the youtube version of his sermon Four Blood Moons:

Here is also an enlightening, though disturbing video by Rev. Michelle Hopkins from her youtube channel:

Revmichelle makes it her mission to keep an eye on what’s going on here on earth and has many videos posted on her channel.

Christ‘s return for the Church is closer than ever. If you find this hard to believe, you are being deceived and not even aware of it.

If you haven’t accepted Christ, I urge you to do so! The signs are all around us…open your heart and receive him Today!

This is just a simple prayer you can pray for yourself, or you can use your own words, but it must come from the heart. God is always reaching out to the lost and wants you to come home to Him! Christ paid the insurmountable debt for our sins, past, present AND future! Accept His gift of salvation through His death and resurrection now.

the sinners prayer

 

Start reading the Bible, the Gospel of John is a good place to start,or, if you wish to start from the beginning, that is ok. But reading the Gospel books can help understand better the new covenant Christ brought to the world through His death and resurrection.  And pray everyday, God wants to hear from you! And ask Him to help you find the right church for you.  If you prayed this prayer (or one similar), welcome to the Family of God! He loves you and I do too!

The Rapture

Repent! Jesus is coming soon

The Rapture, that future moment when the body of believers that make up the Church here on earth is taken up to heaven for the Wedding Feast of the Lamb…for many people, it is unimaginable. It can’t really be described accurately because such has never happened in history. Others see it as a fantasy of ignorant, superstitious people.

This video has been posted and shared on Facebook and to me, it is a simple and very powerful depiction of what will happen in that moment. This video, however, is more for the unbeliever than those of us who do believe. This shows that you must be ready at all times; no one…I repeat NO ONE knows when Christ will return for the church. This is NOT the second coming; Christ will return first, to gather the Church from the earth before the tribulation. His ‘Second Coming‘ will be when He actually sets foot on the earth for the final confrontation. And when He returns then, the Church will be with Him among the Armies of Heaven! Glory to God!

Time’s Fast Running Out

2 Peter 3:8

But you must not forget this one thing, dear friends: A day is like a thousand years to the Lord, and a thousand years is like a day

Recent world events has every one on edge; not just political, but natural, and even cosmic. Many people who study Bible prophecy have reported that there is nothing left to be fulfilled for Christ’s return. Let me be clear, though, for the sake of those who may not fully understand.

Christ is returning; this is known in Christendom as ‘The Second Coming’. This return will be when He comes to rid the world of satan and his followers and establish His Kingdom here on earth.  He will actually ‘set His foot’ on the earth. However, this event will be the second ‘second’ coming…bear with me!

His first ‘Second Coming’ will be for His Church, most commonly known as ‘The Rapture‘.  According to Bible prophecy, He will come back to gather the Church and remove them from the earth before ‘The Great Tribulation‘, that seven-year period described as the worst time in world history, when the antichrist will rule the earth under the ‘New World Order’.  After this will come the battle between good and evil many call Armageddon.  Just before that time, when the nations are gathering to come against Israel, Christ will return, with Heaven’s Armies, (including the Church He recently gathered), engage the devil in a final showdown where He will come out victorious, satan and his minions will be thrown into the pit, and His Kingdom will be established on Earth.

I believe many think of the Rapture as His ‘Second Coming.’ He will not actually set foot on Earth; He will gather the Church up from the Earth in the air and escort them (those that are alive in Christ [believers] and those that are dead). Those that are dead will be resurrected first and those that are alive will meet them in the air as we are all brought to Him at the same moment, “in the twinkling of an eye“.

Now that I have established this short explanation, I’ll get to the real point of this post.

TIME’S A’WASTING, PEOPLE!

Sorry for the caps, but I really want to get your attention. In the last few months, I’ve heard several pastors and people of God declare that there is nothing to be fulfilled for His return. This means…His return for the Church, not the battle against satan. There are still some things that need to happen before that seven year period; however, there are things already set in motion for these events to take place.  [Check out The Hal Lindsey Report and view the archives]

The first person I heard declare this was Pastor John Hagee of Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Texas. He has studied Bible prophecy for many years and doesn’t mince words in his sermons. At the time I heard this, I had a sudden vision of Christ standing at the gates of Heaven, clothed in His Glory.

The only thing left is for God to say “Go, My Son, bring Your Bride home to Me!”.

That is  the reason for the title of this post. Too many people think they have plenty of time; unfortunately, it’s very fast running out. I’m not in any way trying to imply that I know when this will happen, because no one knows, only God.

As some people say “I’d rather be saved and die to find out there is no God, than not be saved, then die to find out there IS!”

Don’t put it off any longer. The time is NOW!
