The 2nd Coming of Jesus Christ
Our Catholic faith is a beautiful gift from God, and there is
always so much to learn
In the last episode we talk about a great deal about “The
Family of God” called: “The Communion of Saints”
We have learned that we are united to Jesus, to the saints
in heaven, the souls in purgatory, and to all those who follow
Jesus here on earth.
All of us are members of the body of Christ
Although the souls in heaven & on the purgatory are
real, they are usually invisible to us; after all we don’t see the
souls in purgatory, but it wouldn’t always be this way.
Something amazing is going to happen; at the End of the
world Jesus Christ is going to come again.
Jesus will Come Again
Something amazing is going to happen at
the End of the world Jesus Christ is
going to come again.
All who are death will be rise to life
again, and everyone will be judge.
That means that people, who have love
God & neighbor will be with God forever in
And those who had turned against
God, and didn’t care for their neighbor
will suffer for ever away from God.
Those who died in Love of God
Those who turn away from God and failed to
love their neighbor will go to Hell
Hell is a stated in which someone is separated
from God, and will never ever be with Him.
Hell is the saddest thing it is. It is not for we are
God made us for Heaven!
God made us to be perfectly happy with Him
Those who died in the Love of God, and who
loved their neighbor will rejoice in heaven for all
God made us for Heaven!
Human beings, such a small part of creation and
short-lived as they are,
still find a “need” to praise God.
In spite of sin, each human being feels the
longing to reach out to his Creator.
Why is this?
Saint Augustine realizes it is the doing of God:
“You have made us for yourself, and our hearts are
restless, until they can find rest in you.”
We are made to be perfectly happy with God in
Heaven for all the ETERNITY.
Eternity with God
ETERNITY: we can not even imagine what eternity is,
but using our human terminology we can say that
Eternity is forever, it never ends
In eternity there is not any time
We with God in heaven for all the eternity: we’ll be
joyful with Him in forever
We can hardly begin to imagine, how happy we’ll
be, and our happiness will never end.
Right now there are times, when you are feel
alone, but you are not!
At the end of the world you will see everyone who
will be with you, in the communion of saints,
It will be like a great family reunion; God’s family will
be all together!
When would that happen?
The most important, at the 2nd Coming of Jesus:
we will see God; We will really see Jesus
People ask about the 2nd Coming of Jesus: When
would that happen?
The answer: Only God, The Father, knows
Jesus said that no one else know the day, or the
hour that He would come, neither the angles, or the
Son, but only the Father.
Watchful! Be alert! You do not know when the time
would come. Jesus says that we will be surprise.
He said: you must be prepare for the hour you won't
expect, the Son of man would come.
How do we get ready?
How do we prepare for Jesus 2nd Coming?
Simply, by we loving Him, and always trying
to act as He wants us to act.
Small acts of love
If we stay closer to Jesus we will be trill to
see Him at His 2nd coming.
All the saints had their eye on Heaven;
they wanted to live with Jesus forever
HE WILL COME AGAIN!
2nd Coming also called: LA PAROUSIA
2nd Coming: La Parousia
We have learned that Jesus will come again;
La Parousia: it refers to the coming of the "Day
We called this the 2nd Coming, because
Jesus came the first time as a little baby in
1) He died on the cross
2) and 3 days later rose from death
3) and ascended in Heaven
That was his 1st Coming, but it is not his only
coming, He will come again.
Our Bodies will Be Raised from Death
You may remember another thing
that would happen at the end of the
On the CREED we say:
“I believe in the resurrection of the
That means that if we have died,
our bodies will be raised from death
and reunited with our souls
Our Bodies will Be Raised from Death
Although our bodies died here
we will be not death forever, NO!
Our bodies will be rise
You will have a body forever: (a
Perfect Glorify body)
and after it is risen, you will live
body & soul forever.
Treat our Bodies with Respect
We treat our bodies with respect
because God made them
a) Because our bodies are part of us
b) And because our bodies would rise
again a the end of the world
Just remember the reason God made us:
The purpose He made you was that
you can live with Him forever in Heaven
You were made for Heaven!
3 days after Jesus died on the
Cross, He rose form the death;
we called this Resurrection
and we celebrated on Easter
Jesus is God,
and He give us sharing in his
Our bodies will also be rise from the
In the CREED we also say that:
“we believe that Jesus will come to
judge the living and the death”
At our resurrection we will see everyone, in
relationship with God
We will see, how the good that each person had done,
had affected everyone.
And we’ll see, how the good that each person HAS
FAILED TO DO, had affected everyone else, too.
We’ll see how really we are, and the things that we
omitted to do
God not necessarily expect that we do amazing and
But God expect we do small things with love
And have empathy with those in need.
He expect love and a good relationship with everyone
Our Acts Affect Others
Everyone of us can do, or can fail to do things
that affect others & the creation
For example: sometimes your mom may ask you
to wash the dishes
You don't feel like washing the dishes, but you do it
And even better, you do it without complaining.
This is a good act!!!
You were obedient with your mom,
and this is just what Jesus wants you to be.
Maybe no one noticed how obedient you were.
Maybe your Mom not even noticed it.
But Jesus notice it, and that’s all that matters.
The Good We do Helps Everyone
Remember, whatever good we do, it helps
the whole communion of saints.
We may not see, how being obedient, did any
good to anyone else,
But at the 2nd Coming we will see and
everyone else will see, too.
The Bible tells us:
Nothing is hidden that would not become visible,
and nothing secret that would not be know and
come to light.
We will see how we are in relationship to
God, and we’ll see how everyone else is, too.
At this last judgment, those
whose life ended in the love of
& in love of neighbor will live
with God in Heaven for all the
While those who rejected
God, will suffer away from God
for all the eternity,
Each moment preparing to see God
We should live each moment preparing
to see God,
not only we want to see God,
But He wants us to be with Him forever in
He loves us, and he wants us to be
God call everyone to Sanctity;
there are many saints who share the Glory
and God made you to be a saint, too; so
you may go to heaven.
Jesus will Judge Living & Death
What would Jesus do at the end of
Jesus will come again, and will judge
the living and the death
How long our bodies would lived?
For all the eternity
Death will be risen to life
and our bodies will live for ever, for
all the eternity.
Waiting for the 2nd Coming
Isn't our Catholic Faith beautiful?
There is so much to learn and to
look forward, too.
a) we must look forward to see God
face to face
b) We can look forward to see Jesus
when he comes again
c) We can look forward to be happy
with God for all the eternity.
