Second Coming

  1. 1. Second Coming/Rapture No Hidden thing and not imminent.
  2. 2. Catyclismic Events <ul><li>Matt. 24:29-31, “ Immediately after the distress of those days, the sun will be darkened and the moon will no longer give its light; The stars will fall from the sky, and the heavenly bodies will be shaken . At that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky and all the nations will mourn . The Son of Man will appear in the clouds of the sky with power and great glory and he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other .” </li></ul>
  3. 3. Series of Events Required <ul><li>Matt. 24:6-14+15, “You will hear of wars and rumor of wars , but the see to it that you are not alarmed... Nation will rise against nation , and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places.

  4. 4. The Day <ul><li>2 Thess. 2:1-4, “ Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered up to him, we ask you brothers, not to become easily unsettled or alarmed considering some prophecy, report, or letter supposed to have come from us, saying that the day of the Lord has already come. Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction.” </li></ul>
  5. 5. Restraining Force <ul><li>2 Thess. 2:5-8, “ Don’t you remember when I was with you I used to tell you these things? And now you know what is holding him back , so that he may be revealed at the proper time.

And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will overthrow”. </li></ul>
  6. 6.
