Jesus’ Second Coming: Are You Ready?

Jesus’ Second Coming: Are You Ready?

PROPHECY is History written in advance for us to know and heed. And Prophecy can only come from the Omniscient God of the Bible – who knows the past, the present and the future. 

A. JESUS’ FIRST COMING

Did you know that, as early as 538 BC or about 2,550 years ago, through the Prophet Daniel, the exact date of the First Coming of our LORD Jesus has been prophesied or foretold – and was literally fulfilled to its exact details?

The prophecy was: From the issuance of a decree to rebuild Jerusalem , it will take 483 years for the Messiah to come and then, he will be cut off. (Dan 9: 25-26).

This prophecy was fulfilled in its exact details when King Artaxerxes of Persia issued a decree to rebuild Jerusalem on March 14, 445 BC (Nehemiah 2: 1-9), and after 483years or on April 6, 32 AD (Palm Sunday), Jesus, riding on a donkey, was presented in Jerusalem as the Messiah (Matthew 21: 1-11) and afterwards, He was crucified. Many people consider this as the most amazing prophecy of the Old Testament/Covenant of the Bible.

Other prophecies foretold as early as 750 BC pertaining to the Messiah that Jesus literally fulfilled were: The Messiah will be born in the town of Bethlehem, He will live for a while in Egypt, and He will reside in Nazareth. (Matthew 2). As you can see, the God of the Bible is 100% accurate in fulfilling His prophecies.

Likewise, Jesus’ First Coming also fulfilled the first portion of prophecy written in Isaiah 9: 6 as: “For unto us a child is born, to us a son is given,”

Please note that the LORD Jesus came first as servant and the Savior or Lamb of God  – to show people the way to salvation and eternal life in Heaven.

B. JESUS’ SECOND COMING

But, there’s more! Because Jesus resurrected from the dead, He ascended back to Heaven and He promised to come back.

Did you know that of the 260 chapters of the New Testament/Covenant of the Bible, Jesus’ Second Coming is mentioned 318 times? More specifically, Jesus’ return (touchdown is near Bethany, Israel) is mentioned once in every 25 verses! Obviously, God is alerting each of us on this very important, momentous event. So, how would you react or respond?

This time, however, no exact date was provided on Jesus’ Second Coming, only signs for us to watch (e.g., Deceivers, wars, earthquakes, drugs, famines, diseases, etc.). (Mat 24: 1-51). Like birth pains, all of these signs are happening in our world right now – in greater frequency and magnitude, aren’t these?

Jesus’ Second Coming will then fulfil the succeeding portion of the prophecy written in Isaiah 9: 6 as: “and the government will be on his shoulders. And he (the Son or Jesus) will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” This is when ALL people would know that the Father is God, the Son is God and the Counselor or Holy Spirit is God –  3 Persons in 1 God – in perfect love and unity. (Unfortunately, for many in Hell, this Truth will already too late for comfort.)

Hence, the climax of human history and the crowning glory of Bible’s Prophecy is the SECOND COMING of our LORD JESUS CHRIST.

Jesus will return to the earth in power and glory, this time as the Lion of the tribe of Judah, THE KING OF KINGS and THE LORD OF LORDS –  to judge all the living and the dead and to condemn those who rejected His *FREE offer of salvation. (Rev 19: 11-16).

So, what could happen when Jesus comes back? Seriously consider this scenario:

  1. The remnant of the Jews who will be saved by Jesus from the forces of the Antichrist will shout to Jesus, their Messiah, “Welcome!”
  1. The living Tribulation Saints who were subjected to intense trials and sufferings will exclaim to Jesus, ” Welcome back!”
  1. The True Believers – each one with resurrected body, soul and spirit – who will accompany Jesus in His Second Coming (together with Angels) will declare, “We’re back!”
  1. The dead Old Testament and Tribulation Saints will pronounce, “We’re next! (to be resurrected)”
  1. And ALL Unbelievers – dead or alive – will whimper, “We’re doomed! (to the Lake of Fire)” 

So, when Jesus Christ comes back, to what group would you belong?

C. YOUR CHOICE

Right NOW, can you honestly say to yourself that you are absolutely, positively certain that you’ll be part of the LORD JESUS’ entourage on His SECOND COMING here on earth?

Who’s telling you the TRUTH: the KORAN or the BIBLE?

Who’s telling you the TRUTH: the KORAN or the BIBLE?

Come, be the Judge for yourself who is telling you the TRUTH based on the following compelling facts and evidences. Be sure to make the right choice because your ultimate eternal destiny – Heaven or Hell – is at stake!

1. Key Witnesses

a. Koran – It was written about 650 AD.

The Koran has only 1 witness – Mohammad (570 – 632 AD) – who recited and testified for around 23 years. He performed no miracle nor uttered any prophecy (History written in advance for us to know) to prove that his oral testimonies came from the All-knowing God.

Can truth be established by only 1 witness?

As Military Dictator-cum-Preacher, Mohammad willingly murdered people to force his testimony/religion on others. (For example, Mohammad ordered the beheading of 900 Jews who have already surrendered during the Battle of Qurayzah.)

b. Bible – It was written much earlier from 1500 BC to 90 AD.

The Bible has about 40 witnesses – from Moses to John – who consistently testified over a period of 1,600 years about Holy God’s love, justice and righteousness for mankind. They wrote or an associate wrote their testimonies after these were given to them by God through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.

They performed many miracles (e.g., raising the dead to life, making the born-lame walk, and the born-blind see, and others) and/or uttered prophecies (e.g., pinpointing the exact date of the first coming of the Messiah 550 years in advance, identifying the town where the Messiah be born 700 years before it happened, and many others) to prove that their oral/written testimonies came from the All-knowing God.

All of these witnesses were willing to die for their testimonies. And many of them were murdered by Unbelievers, while upholding their testimonies till death.

2. On Creation of the Universe

a. Koran – Allah created the universe in 6 days (Q7: 54, Q10: 3) and also a total of 8 days (Q41: 9-12).

b. Bible – God created the heavens and earth in 6 days. (Genesis 1: 1 – 2: 2).

3. On Creation of Man  (From what substance were people made?)

a. Koran – Allah created man from earth (Q11; 61), from blood clot (Q96: 1-2), from water (Q21: 30), burned clay (Q15: 26), dust (Q3: 59), nothing (Q19: 67) and thick fluid (Q16: 4, Q 73: 37).

b. Bible – God created the first man from the dust of the ground. (Genesis 2: 7).

4. The Earth

a. Koran – The earth is flat and suspended on mountains, so it won’t move when you move. (Q31: 10, 71: 19).

b. Bible –The earth is a round sphere when viewed from above. (Isaiah 42: 22).

5. The Sun

a. Koran – The sun sets on muddy waters. (Q18: 85-86).

b. Bible – The sun orbits in the heavens on a circuit. (Psalm 19: 6).

6. On Mary 

a. Koran – Mary, the surrogate mother of Jesus, is the same woman as, Miriam, the sister of Aaron. (Q19: 28).

b. Bible – Mary lived in 30 AD (Luke 2) while Miriam (sister of Aaron) lived in 1500 BC (Exodus 15) hence, they were not the same person.

7. On Haman 

a. Koran – a man named Haman, a servant of Pharaoh during the time of Moses, built the high tower of Babel to ascend to God (Q28: 38, Q40: 23-25, 36-37).

b. Bible – Haman lived during the time of Esther in 2000 BC (Esther 7); Nimrod lived much earlier (Genesis 10: 8-9), even before the Flood during the time of Noah in 3500 BC; while the Pharaoh lived during the time of Moses in 1500 BC (Exodus 7).

It should be noted that although the Bible was already written during 620 AD, Mohammad was not able to read it. He got his Bible stories transmitted to him orally during his days as worker and manager of caravans.

Without verification, these Bible stories were not retold truthfully from one person to another – some made additions and some made subtractions in the process –  and so the facts of Mohammad on Bible stories got jumbled. And thus, based on the above compelling evidences, the Koran’s Allah became not All-knowing and confused like his Messenger – Mohammad.

So, who do you think is telling the TRUTH based on the above credibility and testimonies of the above witnesses – the KORAN or the BIBLE?

And where would you entrust the most crucial, the most valuable and the most important part of your life – your ultimate eternal destiny whether in Heaven or in Hell – to the TRUTH or otherwise?

Jesus Christ – whose 1 of His 3 offices is being The Prophet –  performed more miracles and uttered more prophecies than anyone who ever lived here on earth and He declared, “I am the way and the TRUTH and the life. No one comes to the Father (God in Heaven) except through me.” (John 14: 6). He proved His declarations by resurrecting from the dead and ascending back to Heaven.

And now, after knowing the TRUTH, when you absolutely, positively want to be with God in the Bible’s Heaven (not the Koran’s Paradise) someday, forever then, come and see @ www.youinheaven.com .

You’ll be very glad you did, because you can now have peace of mind with regards to your ultimate eternal destiny!

Who was the First PERSON to be BORN AGAIN?

Who was the First PERSON to be BORN AGAIN?

Did you know that the Son of God became the Son of Man, so that sons (daughters) of men may become sons (daughters) of God?

  • Jesus Christ who was born (begotten) of God was born again of man, so that we who were born of men can be born again of God.
  • Jesus Christ who was born of Heaven was born again of earth, so that we who were born on earth could be born again of Heaven.
  • And Jesus Christ who was born of Spirit was born again of the flesh, so that we who were born of the flesh could be born again of the Spirit.

Please remember, Jesus Christ declared, “I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again (reborn from above).” (John 3: 3).

So, right now, have you been born again (reborn from above) to surely get to Heaven someday? If so, how do you know?

WHAT IS YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS?

WHAT IS YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS?

Righteousness equates to justification and therefore, our salvation.

So, where can you find the perfect righteousness God requires for you to get to Heaven someday?

  1. Human righteousness is primarily a social quality – doing certain things and avoiding bad deeds society deems are good. It is based on good character and good works.

And so, human righteousness is “by works”. This is doing what you can with what you have, in order to gain what you want.  OR

  1. God’s righteousness is inherent in His own nature or attribute – just as God is love, so God is also righteous.

And God’s righteousness is obtained “by faith”. This is when God does what He only could, in order to give us what we truly need.

Many people, like the Jews, tried to earn their righteousness/salvation by obeying the Law, but were not able to attain it. However, Believers, like Gentiles, obtained righteousness/salvation by receiving it as God’s gift – by God’s grace alone through faith in Jesus Christ only.

The Bible declares, “The righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely (saved or declared righteous in God’s sight) by his grace through the redemption that came by Jesus Christ.” (Romans 3: 22-24).

So, what kind of righteousness do you have right now?

To obtain God’s righteousness – perfect and divine – which is what you need to get to Heaven someday, come and see by clicking any of the following links:

HOW TO GET TO HEAVEN SOMEDAY?

HOW TO GET TO HEAVEN SOMEDAY?

This could be the most important question you’ll ever ask in your whole life: How to get to Heaven someday, forever?

And here are the answers or formulas of the 3 major religions of the world to get to Heaven:

1. Jewish Faith: Torah + Talmud + Good Works = Heaven
2. Catholic Faith: Bible + Tradition + Good Works = Heaven
3. Muslim Faith: Koran + Hadith + Good Works = Paradise

When you put Good Works in Heaven’s equation, it becomes a variable and thus, the result is uncertain, isn’t it? Consider the following:

1. How many good works do you need to offset the bad works you’ve done?
2. How do you qualify (give weight) each good work vis-à-vis a bad work you did?
3. What will be the passing grade to get to Heaven: 51%, 75%, 90%, or others?

Now, why not accept as a gift the God (Creator of Heaven and earth) of the Bible’s formula for you to surely (100%) get to Heaven? Here it is:

Biblical Christianity: God’s Work (By God’s grace alone through faith in Jesus Christ
and His finished work only) = Heaven (John 1: 12-13, John 3: 16-18, Ephesians 2: 8-9).
Here are two (2) questions for you to ponder:

1. What was your contribution in order to be born as a child of your earthly father?
2. And what would be your contribution in order to be born again as a child of our Heavenly Father – God?

Please remember that like resurrected Jesus Christ, and as a true child of God, you must also have to ascend to Heaven someday in your whole body, soul and spirit.

You’ll be very glad you did!

WHAT IS GLORIFICATION?

WHAT IS GLORIFICATION?

Do you think Glorification is the freedom from the Presence of sin – the start of which is your resurrection (body, soul and spirit) – to be accomplished through God, The Son?

Will your physical/earthly body be transformed into a resurrected/glorified body (like that of Jesus Christ) someday, to be with God in Heaven – where there’s no pain, no sickness, no death, and no Presence of sin – for all eternity?

If you think that this is too good to be true, then how do you plan to be resurrected or be glorified to Heaven someday?

And did you know that in the sight of God (the great I AM), a Believer is already Justified, Sanctified and Glorified (Romans 8)? For us mortals it is not yet, but to the All-Present God who is not bound by time and space, it is finished!
