EVENTS IMMEDIATELY BEFORE AND AFTER THE RETURN OF JESUS CHRIST
The Bible is one harmonious whole.
There are NO contradictions in the Word of God.
The only ones who believe there are contradictions in the Bible–or who maintain “We have to agree to disagree“–are those who
- are tares;
- do not understand God’s Word;
- do not have the Holy Spirit.
“Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.”
NOWHERE is this more true than in the biblical account of the return of Jesus Christ.
Every account in the Bible meshes and supports every other account. Only when one of these verses is taken out of context and bent out of shape does dissension begin.
AFTER THE TRIBULATION, THERE WILL BE SIGNS IN THE SUN, THE MOON AND IN THE STARS
JESUS WILL COME IN THE CLOUDS WITH GREAT GLORY
EVERY EYE WILL SEE HIM. ALL THE TRIBES OF THE EARTH WILL MOURN. ALL WHO DWELL UPON THE EARTH SHALL WAIL
“And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.”
But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken.
And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.
Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him.
JESUS WILL THEN SEND HIS ANGELS TO GATHER HIS ELECT TO HIM
And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.
And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other
In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
THE DEAD IN CHRIST SHALL RISE FIRST. WHEN DO THE DEAD RISE?
And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.
And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.
No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.
Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.
And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
And now: a few questions for the denizens of the churches.
- HOW can every eye in a global world be able to see Jesus Christ return? Explain.
- WHY will all of the tribes of the earth mourn?
- WHY will all kindreds (humans) of the earth wail?
- WHEN does Jesus gather His elect: before or after the tribulation of those days?
- WHEN do the dead in Christ rise?
- WHY does Jesus advise those who are His to look up, lift up your heads; for your redemption draws nigh [near]?
- Does Jesus tell his followers to look up for their redemption before or after he comes in the clouds in great power and glory?
There will be a test.
ALL answers will be final.
Is the reader’s calling and election sure?
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
“But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:”
—2 Corinthians 4:3
