1There are many doctrines associated with the second coming of Christ either directly or indirectly. With the second coming of Christ we may think of the doctrine of the resurrection of the dead, the doctrine of judgment, the doctrine of the end of the world, the doctrine of heaven and hell. These things are tied to the fact that Jesus will one day return.Men have had an obsession with trying to flirt with dates suggesting when the end of the world would be. One of the most popular preachers trying to establish a date for the 2nd coming of Christ was one who essentially became the founder of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church – William Miller.Mr. Miller went about boldly asserting that Jesus would come on March 21, He was so powerful in his presentations that he had gained a following over time of nearly 1 in 17 Americans. March 21, 1843 came and left as all other days have since the creation have. His powerful presentations were denied.He then sought to correct his blunder and added an extra year predicting the second coming to be on March 21, As history has showed, March 21 began, the sun continued to move and finally dipped away from the horizon of man's eye. When midnight finally came and Christ had not come Miller and his disciples were stunned.Would that have been the end of Miller? Nope! Joshua Himes came to Miller’s rescue convincing him and others that there was a blunder and that the date for Christ’s return was really October 22, Through the ensuing months they went preaching packing theaters showing their timelines and interpretations. When October 22nd finally dawned, people were reported of doing all kinds of foolish things.“6. One reporter said, "The children scurried about in the mud and muck, wild-eyed and frightened, their heads filled with thoughts of fire and destruction. The sight of their mentally disturbed parents terrified them. The children milled and wandered, many of them becoming lost in the sea of white-robed fanatics who were interested only in the trumpet and sheet of flame that would end the worldAnother reporter said that in one of the tent- cities, two frightened children, overcome with fear and cold, laid down on the soggy ground and were found by their parents the following morning, dead and trampled into the mud and mire.In Philadelphia, "a mild-mannered man" stepped from a third-story window and tried to fly to heaven and was found in the street with his body mangled in death and his ascension robe soiled with mud and spattered with bloodOne young woman in Chicago, not being aware that all earthly things were doomed, bought a new wardrobe, packed it in a steel trunk, asked her friends to strap her to the top of the trunk to ensure that she and her clothes would enter the pearly gates at the same time, and that she, being so well dressed, would be the envy of every woman in heaven.” (tenderbytes.net)Such shows what fools false religion makes us out to be. Whether it is the twisting of scripture to our own destruction regarding when the second coming is or the nature of heaven (2 Pet. 3:16).Or the repudiation of the scriptures and the twisting of the data in the earth to create the false religion of evolution makes men out to be just as foolish. What we need is to look intently into God's word and then seek how to do it with good and honest hearts and a good an honest habit.
2BIENVENIDOSBendito sea el Dios y Padre de Señor Jesucristo Que nos bendijo con toda bendición espiritual En los lugarescelestiales en Cristo.
3Marcos 13:32"Pero de aquel día y de la hora nadie sabe, ni aun los ángeles que están en el cielo, ni el Hijo, sino el Padre."If Miller would have given 1/4th as much consideration to this one passage from the Master's mouth as he did Daniel and Revelation then there would not have been what was termed “The Great Disappointment" of the 1800's!
4La Certeza de la 2da Venida 8"pero recibiréis poder, cuando haya venido sobre vosotros el Espíritu Santo, y me seréis testigos en Jerusalén, en toda Judea, en Samaria, y hasta lo último de la tierra. Y habiendo dicho estas cosas, viéndolo ellos, fue alzado, y le recibió una nube que le ocultó de sus ojos. Y estando ellos con los ojos puestos en el cielo, entre tanto que él se iba, he aquí se pusieron junto a ellos dos varones con vestiduras blancas, los cuales también les dijeron: Varones galileos, ¿por qué estáis mirando al cielo? Este mismo Jesús, que ha sido tomado de vosotros al cielo, así vendrá como le habéis visto ir al cielo." (Hch 1:8’11Do you accept:1. Jesus was a real person? (Do you accept the biblical and extra-biblical references of him?)2. Do you accept that he chose 12 apostles? [CLICK]3. Do you accept that at one point they were filled with the Holy Spirit (v. 8)? [CLICK]4. Do you accept that Jesus left them and ascended into heaven and that the falling of the Holy Spirit was a testimony that Jesus was there on His throne? (see Acts 2:33). [CLICK]5. If you accept those things, then you should accept the testimony of these men in white (angels) that Jesus will come again one day.[CLICK]
5La certeza de su 2da venida Y del Juicio "Y de la manera que está establecido para los hombres que mueran una sola vez, y después de esto el juicio," (Heb 9:27) "así también Cristo fue ofrecido una sola vez para llevar los pecados de muchos; y aparecerá por segunda vez, sin relación con el pecado, para salvar a los que le esperan." (Heb 9:28)[CLICK] Is the Bible correct when it talks about people dying? Has anyone in the history of the world discovered a way to evade death? In all of our advancements have we provided a solution to death? NO!Just as sure as death is a historical and present reality, so Jesus was a part of earth history. He once lived here and “was offered” (as a sacrifice) “to bear the sins of many” referring to His death.Now the Hebrew writer moves on to future history as well. He refers to two things awaiting. [CLICK]1. The judgment of men (v. 27). It is taught that in this judgment there is a reward for the righteous. He calls it “salvation.” These are those who eagerly wait for him”. They are like the 5 wise virgins in Matthew 25:1-10 (note “ready” v. 10).2. [CLICK] The second future event mentioned is the “second time” for the Lord’s appearance. Note that the judgment of men (v. 27) corresponds with the second appearance (v. 28). They happen simultaneously. Salvation is given at this time with judgment.
6El propósito de la 2da venida Para resucitar a los muertos“"Porque el Señor mismo con voz de mando, con voz de arcángel, y con trompeta de Dios, descenderá del cielo; y los muertos en Cristo resucitarán primero." (1 Tes 4:16) Jn 5:28, 29With John 5:28, there is a place in John where the voice of Jesus beckons a dead man to come forth. He said to the decaying corpse of Lazarus which had been dead for 4 days, "Lazarus come forth" (Jn. 11:43). "And he who had died came out bound hand and foot with graveclothes. . ." (Jn. 11:44).
7El propósito de la 2da venida Para resucitar a los muertosPara llevarse a los suyos"Luego nosotros los que vivimos, los que hayamos quedado, seremos arrebatados juntamente con ellos en las nubes para recibir al Señor en el aire, y así estaremos siempre con el Señor." (1 Tes 4:17)Note: "with them." Who is "them?" Now do you know why it is so important to get your loved ones and friends "into Christ?" There is a hope of seeing them again after death!
8El propósito de la 2da venida Para resucitar a los muertosPara llevarse a los suyosPara encontrarse con el Señor"Luego nosotros los que vivimos, los que hayamosquedado, seremos arrebatados juntamente con ellosen las nubes para recibir al Señor en el aire, y asíestaremos siempre con el Señor." (1 Tes 4:17)The crowned moment, the pinacle and acme moment of history will be when we see the beautiful face of Jesus. The one that we have studied in our Bibles and learned his character. The one whom we had come to love and know from what is written will appear whom we shall all meet.I cannot imagine a time being better than this. We will not be thinking then of all that we suffered for Christ. Rather it will be how glorious and awesome the King really is. How far and limited our minds were from truly perceiving His greatness!
9El propósito de la 2da venida Para resucitar a los muertosPara llevarse a los suyosPara encontrarse con el SeñorPara ser juzgados"y serán reunidas delante de él todas las naciones; y apartará los unos de los otros, como aparta el pastor las ovejas de los cabritos." (Mat 25:32)This will entail a “conviction” of the wicked:Jude 1:14 Now Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men also, saying, "Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints,Jude 1:15 ¶ "to execute judgment on all, to convict all who are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have committed in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him."There will be nothing hidden from him.
10El propósito de la 2da venida Para resucitar a los muertosPara llevarse a los suyosPara encontrarse con el SeñorPara ser juzgados "Así que, no juzguéis nada antes de tiempo, hasta que venga el Señor, el cual aclarará también lo oculto de las tinieblas, y manifestará las intenciones de los corazones; y entonces cada uno recibirá su alabanza de Dios." (1 Cor 4:5)
11RECOMPENSA De los Justos El Rey les Honrara"Bienaventurados aquellos siervos a los cuales su señor, cuando venga, halle velando; de cierto os digo que se ceñirá, y hará que se sienten a la mesa, y vendrá a servirles." (Luc 12:37)The Master (Christ) is pictured as sitting down and eating with his servants. Not only that, he will come and serve them.
12RECOMPENSA De los Justos El Rey les HonraraTendrán comunión con el Rey"Y si me fuere y os preparare lugar, vendré otra vez, y os tomaré a mí mismo, para que donde yo estoy, vosotros también estéis." (Juan 14:3)This is what I am waiting for. This is what makes being a Christian worthwhile. I want to go to heaven and be with the Lord.
13RECOMPENSA De los Justos El Rey les HonraraTendrán comunión con el ReySeremos parecidos al Rey"Mas nuestra ciudadanía está en los cielos, de donde también esperamos al Salvador, al Señor Jesucristo; el cual transformará el cuerpo de la humillación nuestra, para que sea semejante al cuerpo de la gloria suya, por el poder con el cual puede también sujetar a sí mismo todas las cosas." (Fil 3:20-21)
14RECOMPENSA De los Justos El Rey les HonraraTendrán comunión con el ReySeremos parecidos al ReyLa Gloria nos acompañara"Cuando Cristo, vuestra vida, se manifieste, entonces vosotros también seréis manifestados con él en gloria." (Col 3:4)This glory is an exalted state of magnificence and blessedness.1Pe 5:4 "and when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that does not fade away."
15RECOMPENSA De los Justos El Rey les HonraraTendrán comunión con el ReySeremos parecidos al ReyLa Gloria nos acompañarale veremos tal como él es"Amados, ahora somos hijos de Dios, y aún no se ha manifestado lo que hemos de ser; pero sabemos que cuando él se manifieste, seremos semejantes a él, porque le veremos tal como él es." (1 Juan 3:2)This glory is an exalted state of magnificence and blessedness.
162 Thessalonians 1:6-9"Porque es justo delante de Dios pagar con tribulación a los que os atribulan, y a vosotros que sois atribulados, daros reposo con nosotros, cuando se manifieste el Señor Jesús desde el cielo con los ángeles de su poder, en llama de fuego, para dar retribución a los que no conocieron a Dios, ni obedecen al evangelio de nuestro Señor Jesucristo; los cuales sufrirán pena de eterna perdición, excluidos de la presencia del Señor y de la gloria de su poder,"It is clear that the Bible only sees two classes of people. These classes are NOT distinguished by gender, skin color, rich or poor, tall or short. Rather there is one group that is going to receive “rest” and the other group that is going to receive tribulation (consisting of flaming fire and being banished from God).The two groups are discriminated against by “knowing” and “obeying” the gospel.If you know of God but haven’t obeyed, then you are in the group who will be punished. If you don’t know Jesus or are ignorant of him, you are in the group that is punished. However, if you know him and “are known by him” in obeying the gospel then you will be given rest.(NKJV)
17¿Quiénes serán “SALVOS” de la 2da Venida? Aunque no lo crea, muy pocos."Y alguien le dijo: Señor, ¿son pocos los que se salvan? Y él les dijo: Esforzaos a entrar por la puerta angosta; porque os digo que muchos procurarán entrar, y no podrán." (Luc 13:23-24)Who are the saved? Can we know? Are we left to our own imagination to figure it out?[CLICK]You can also think of the remnant who were saved in Noah’s world1Pe 3:20 “who formerly were disobedient, when once the Divine longsuffering waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was being prepared, in which a few, that is, eight souls, were saved through water.”This is the strange thing about the second coming. Almost everyone thinks they are saved but Jesus said only a few will be. Many even seek but few are able. This doesn’t mean that one should grow discouraged and give up. What it means is that you must be willing to “strive to enter.This word “Strive” is defined as:1) to enter a contest: contend in the gymnastic games2) to contend with adversaries, fight3) metaph. to contend, struggle, with difficulties and dangers4) to endeavour with strenuous zeal, strive: to obtain something (Online Bible Greek Lexicon)
18¿Quiénes serán “SALVOS” de la 2da Venida? Aunque no lo crea, muy pocos.Todos aquellos que creyeron y baut"El que creyere y fuere bautizado, será salvo; mas el que no creyere, será condenado." (Mar 16:16)El bautismo precede al “arrepentimiento” y “la confesion ” (Hch 2:38; 8:36-38)In regards to any who were saved after the cross of Christ, they were believers who submitted into baptism.These saved ones are the ones who rejected the majority of the religious thought today that reduces baptism to some all but irrelevant right.
19¿Quiénes serán “SALVOS” de la 2da Venida? Aunque no lo crea, muy pocos.Todos aquellos que creyeron y bautTodos aquellos que permanecieron fieles hasta la muerteAp 2:10"Pero nosotros no somos de los que retroceden para perdición, sino de los que tienen fe para preservación del alma." (Heb 10:39)
20De esta lección hemos aprendido: Hemos mirado la certeza de la segunda venida del SeñorHemos visto el PropósitoHemos visto la recompensa del fielHemos visto quienes serán salvos en la segunda venida
21The 2nd coming of Christ is the “end of days The 2nd coming of Christ is the “end of days.” Jesus refers to it as the “last day.”Joh 12:48 "He who rejects Me, and does not receive My words, has that which judges him—the word that I have spoken will judge him in the last day.Time will no longer exist then as it exists now. If the Lord permits, this day will end and have another take its place. What is broke today can be fixed tomorrow. What is built today can also be destroyed tomorrow. What is troubling to you today will pass tomorrow and so on.But on that “last day” there will no longer be anymore "tomorrows;" no more changes of beginnings to end. . .no more sunrises to sunsets. What is done then is what will be done and our eternity will be sealed.We will inherit the place we have chosen. You know, we chose that place here! Our day in eternity is really decided by the choices we make here. Surely God has given us the "word" and “days” of life here to decide and determine the makeup, the constitution and composition of that great and last day as it pertains to our soul.What will the word judge you as on that last day?
