Introduction ~ Biblical prophecy is a lot like a giant jigsaw puzzle. The creators of each have provided a clear picture of the end result. As the puzzle is being put together, the completion is increasingly anticipated. However, the placement, sequence, and timing of the remaining pieces is not as clear. This series of posts would be better entitled Remaining Future Events; however, Second Coming (or Second Advent) is the common terminology which tends to lump a wide range of future events together.
The Lord’s Personal Promise ~ Jesus said, “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. And where I go you know, and the way you know” (John 14:1-4). “Do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise: ‘For yet a little while, and He who is coming will come and will not tarry’” (Hebrews 10:35-37).
A Personal Return ~ “Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven” (Acts 1:11). “And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work” (Revelation 22:12).
The Lord Himself ~ “For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God” (1 Thessalonians 4:16a).
The Christian’s Hope ~ “Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ, by the commandment of God our Savior and the Lord Jesus Christ, our hope” (1 Timothy 1:1). “And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure” (1 John 3:3).
