When He came the first time, Jesus came to a world dictated by both the Caesars and the Herodian dynasty. While Jesus was growing up, Augustus died in A.D. 14, and was replaced by the paranoid emperor, Tiberias. During the reigns of these tyrants, Jesus presented Himself as the sacrificial Lamb of God, and became a sacrifice for the salvation of the entire world. In that day, His timing was perfect.
He came not to a land of peace, but of wars and revolutions. It will be so again, and very soon, since we’re approaching the second millennium since His departure. He is coming again, and His timing is always perfect.
We believe this is a prophecy about two prophetic days of a thousand years each. Since most scholars believe Jesus was crucified in 30 AD, the end of the second day is approaching.
Soon, He will come again, and His arrival will be as perfectly timed as it was at His first coming. But this time, He will not live a modest life among the miserable power-grabbing leaders of today.
Instead, He will come to take His own people – both the dead in Christ, and the living faithful – home to heaven. There, with the Body of Christ in heaven, we will be witnesses of Christ’s Coronation Ceremony as King of Kings and watch Him prepare to judge this world in the seven-year Tribulation period.
When He came the first time, the world was wracked by revolution and false religion. Today, we groan, as we await a remedy for all the lying and the breakdown of morality, rampant false religion, socialist revolution and the threat of rising Islamic aggression.
But this time He’s coming not as the humble Savior, but as the risen Christ, who will gather His own, and soon after that, begin to open the seals of judgment.
Jesus is coming for His Bride, the Church! Be blessed by the thought of meeting Him in the air!
