The last time Jesus disciples saw him on Earth, he was ascending into heaven. Stunned, they stood there looking up into the heavens. As they gazed into the sky, two men in shining apparel appeared and assured them , “This same Jesus who was taken up from you into heaven, will so, in like manner as you have seen Him go into heaven . (Acts 1:11) hearing these words from the Angels, perhaps I remembered what Jesus Himself had promised them in John 14:3. “If I go…I will come again….”
While we do not know “The day or the hour…” of Jesus return, Scripture does provide us with assurance of the Second Coming, and gives us many details of related events.
Having spent years of study of the prophetic Scriptures, I'm looking forward to beginning a three part series of messages this Sunday titled “Prophecy’s Top Ten Countdown.” During this study we will consider three basic views about the future, +10 specific prophetic events characters which play important roles in the coming development.
While one of the main purposes of this series is to introduce you to the study of future things in Scripture, my goal is not simply information. Over and over the Scriptures assure us of prophecies which have been fulfilled, many in the life of Christ during His first coming. Thus we can be assured that we can trust the Scriptures’ prediction regarding events surrounding His Second Coming.
In addition, Scripture is clear that the truths about the Lord’s return ought to motivate us to steadfastness in our faith (1 Corinthians 15:58) and Godly conduct in our lives (2 Peter 3:14). May the Lord use these messages to strengthen both our faith in Him and our walk before others.
