REVELATION AND THE SECOND COMING
LESSON #49
THE EVENT OF THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST

  • MEMORY VERSE: REV 19:11
  • IN OUR STUDY, WE HAVE COME THROUGH THE MANY DETAILS OF THE TRIBULATION PERIOD TO ARRIVE AT THE EVENT OF THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST THAT WE WILL DISCUSS IN DETAIL IN THIS LESSON.
    • REVIEW OF THE LAST 3 ½ YEARS OF THE TRIBULATION PERIOD:
      • THE ANTI-CHRIST CONTROLS HALF OF JERUSALEM BUT NOT SECTIONS OF JORDAN. THIS INCLUDES THE CITY OF PETRA WHERE JEWS HIDE FROM THE WRATH OF THE ANTI-CHRIST.
      • THE ANTI-CHRIST DESTROYS THE FOLLOWING AREAS:
        • MUCH OF JORDAN (ISA 16:1-5 JER 48:26-28, 47)
        • SAUDI ARABIA AND KUWAIT.
        • GAZA AND LEBANON.
        • SYRIA AND IRAN.
        • EGYPT AND ETHIOPIA.
          • EGYPT WILL BE DESOLATE FOR ALMOST 40 YEARS INTO THE MILLENNIAL KINGDOM.
          • THE EGYPTIANS ARE ENSLAVED BY THE ANTI-CHRIST AND MANY ARE SCATTERED.
          • MANY JEWS ARE IN BONDAGE IN EGYPT FOR 3 YEARS (DEU 28:68)
      • THE ANTI-CHRIST MAKES THE MARK OF THE BEAST, 666, A MANDATORY MARK.
      • EXTREME PERSECUTION OF BELIEVERS IN JESUS CHRIST WITH MANY MARTYRED.
      • WORSHIP OF THE ANTI-CHRIST AS GOD IS MADE MANDATORY IN THE JEWISH TEMPLE.
      • WAR RUMORS FROM THE FAR EAST TROUBLE THE ANTI-CHRIST.
      • THE ANTI-CHRIST KILLS THE TWO WITNESSES OF GOD, BUT GOD RESURRECTS THEM.
      • AN ANGEL PREACHES THE GOSPEL.
      • THE EUPHRATES RIVER DRIES ALLOWING A LARGE ARMY TO MARCH TO ISRAEL.
      • THE ANTI-CHRIST CONVINCES THE NATIONS TO RALLY IN MEGGIDO WITH A LARGE INTERNATIONAL ARMY.
      • THE BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON BEGINS.
  • AS WE LEARNED IN OUR LAST LESSON, THE EVENT OF THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST OCCURS DURING THE BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON. IN THIS LESSON WE WILL TAKE A CLOSER LOOK AT THIS EVENT.
    • READ MAT 24:29-31
    • READ ZEC 14:4-7
    • READ ISA 13:6-16
  • THE SOUND OF A TRUMPET (MAT 24:31)
    • THE SOUND OF A TRUMPET OCCURS AT THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH AND AT THE EVENT OF THE SECOND COMING.
      • THE SOUND OF THE TRUMPET CALLS ALL RAPTURED BELIEVERS IN HEAVEN TOGETHER TO COME WITH CHRIST BACK TO THE EARTH. (1THE 3:13 MAT 24:31 MAR 13:27)
    • CHRIST IS SEATED ON A WHITE HORSE CLOTHED IN FINE LINEN. (REV 19:14)
      • HE COMES IN THE CLOUDS (REV 1:7 ISA 19:1 MAT 24:30 DAN 7:13 LUK 21:27)
    • ANGELS ARE GATHERED TOGETHER TO COME WITH HIM. (2THE 1:7)
    • ALL PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD WILL SEE HIM COME (MAT 24:30 PSA 97:6 REV 1:7)
  • THE HEAVENS ARE DARKENED AND THE MOON TURNS TO BLOOD AND STARS FALL. (ACT 2:20 MAT 24:29 ZEC 14:6 JOE 3:15 ISA 5:30 ISA 13:10)
  • THE GREAT EARTHQUAKE AND THE SALVATION OF THE JEWS (ZEC 14:4 REV 16:17-21 JOE 3:16 ISA 13:13)
    • WHEN JESUS’ FOOT TOUCHES THE MOUNT OF OLIVES, IT WILL TRIGGER THE LARGEST EARTHQUAKE THIS PLANET HAS EVER EXPERIENCED. THE SHOCK WILL RUN AROUND THE WORLD AND MANY WILL DIE IN IT.
      • JEWS WILL RUN INTO ROCK CREVICES TO BE PROTECTED BY CHRIST FROM EARTHQUAKE(ISA 64 ZEC 12:8-10)
        • THIS IS AN UNUSUAL RESPONSE FOR USUALLY A PERSON WOULD RUN FROM THE FALLING ROCK. HOWEVER, WHEN YOU REMEMBER THAT JESUS IS THE ROCK. THIS RESPONSE IS A TURNING TO CHRIST.
          • READ ZEC 12:10-11
    • THE RESULTS OF THE EARTHQUAKE:
      • THE MT. OF OLIVES SPLITS (ZEC 14:14 REV 16:17-21)
      • JERUSALEM IS DIVIDED INTO THREE PARTS (REV 16:19)
      • MOUNTAINS WILL DISAPPEAR AROUND JERUSALEM (PSA 97:5 REV 16:20)
      • ISLANDS DISAPPEAR (REV 16:20)
      • THE GULF IN WHICH THE RED SEA TERMINATES NEAR SUEZ WILL DRY UP (ISA 11:15)
      • HAIL – 100 LBS.(REV 16:21)
  • CHRIST WILL ENTER JERUSALEM BY WAY OF THE EASTERN GATE (EZE 44:1,2 EZE 43:1,2).
    • JESUS ENTERED THROUGH THE EASTERN GATE IN HIS TRIUMPHAL ENTRY ON PALM SUNDAY THE WEEK BEFORE THE CRUCIFIXION.
    • THE GATE WAS SHUT BY THE MUSLIMS 1,200 YEARS AGO TO PREVENT THE COMING OF CHRIST AND THE ESTABLISHING OF HIS KINGDOM.
      • THE MUSLIMS PUT A CEMETERY IN FRONT OF THE GATE. THEY THOUGHT CHRIST WOULD NOT WALK OVER A CEMETERY.
    • In 1917, DEC 9
      • JERUSALEM HAD BEEN UNDER THE TURKS FOR 400 YEARS. WHEN THE BRITISH ATTACKED IN 1917. THE ARABS SHUT ALL THE GATES TO THE CITY BECAUSE OF THE BRITISH TANKS THAT WERE ADVANCING. THE ARABS NEEDED ONE GATE OPEN FOR ACCESS. THEY THOUGHT TO OPEN THE EASTERN GATE BECAUSE IT WAS ON A HILL. AT THAT TIME, TANKS WERE NOT ABLE TO CLIMB HILLS EASILY.
      • BEFORE THE ATTACK OF JERUSALEM BY THE BRITISH, GENERAL LORD ALLENBY DID NOT WANT TO DESTROY THE SACRED PLACES. THEREFORE, HE FLEW A PLANE OVER JERUSALEM. HE DROPPED LEAFLETS THAT SAID, “FLEE JERUSALEM, ALLENBY”. THE ARABS HAD A PROPHECY THAT THEY WOULD NOT LOSE THE CITY UNTIL A PROPHET OF ALLAH CAME AND TOLD THEM TO LEAVE. THE ARABS SAW THE LEAFLETS THAT WERE SIGNED BY ALLENBY AND TRANSLATED IT “ALLAH” AND “BEY” WHICH MEANT, THE PROPHET OF GOD. THEY FLED THE CITY BEFORE THEY COULD OPEN THE EASTERN GATE.
    • In 1947
      • JORDAN TOOK THE CITY.
    • 1967, JUNE 5
      • THE KING OF JORDAN, HUSSEIN, WANTED TO CONSTRUCT A GRAND HOTEL ON THE TEMPLE MOUNT. HE DECIDED TO OPEN THE EASTERN GATE TO FACILITATE CONSTRUCTION. THAT DAY WAS THE DAY OF THE 6 DAY WAR. ISRAELI AIR FORCES STOPPED THE OPENING OF THE EASTERN GATE. KING HUSSEIN’S WORKERS FLED.
    • THE EASTERN GATE WILL BE OPENED BY THE EARTHQUAKE WHEN CHRIST COMES.
  • THE END OF THE BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON:
    • CHRIST AND HIS SAINTS WILL BE IN THE BATTLE AGAINST THE FALSE PROPHET AND THE ANTI-CHRIST, THOUGH CHRIST WILL DO THE FIGHTING (DAN 8:25 PSA 24:3 ZEC 14:3)
    • ANTI-CHRIST AND FALSE PROPHET ARE THROWN IN THE LAKE OF FIRE (ISA 10:33,34 DAN 7:11 REV 19:20 REV 19:11-16 ISA 10:12)
    • CHRIST DESTROYS FALSE RELIGION–BABYLON HEADQUARTERS (ISA 13:1-22 REV 16:19 REV 17:14)
    • CHRIST PUTS AN END TO ALL HUMAN GOVERNMENTS IN THE WORLD.
  • THE RESPONSE OF MANY PEOPLE:
    • PEOPLE WILL FLEE TO TRY TO HIDE FROM CHRIST (REV 6:15-17 ISA 17:13 MAT 24:30 ZEC 14:5 ISA 2:19 REV 6:16)
      • THERE WILL BE MANY HEART ATTACKS DUE TO FEAR (LUK 21:26)
  • THE WORK OF THE ANGELS:
    • THE ANGELS HELP TO ADMINISTER DEATH ON ALL THE WICKED BY FIRE.
      • THOSE WHO TOOK THE MARK OF THE BEAST, 666.
      • THOSE WHO FOUGHT FOR THE ANTI-CHRIST.
      • THOSE WHO WORSHIPPED THE ANTI-CHRIST
      • THOSE INVOLVED IN THE FALSE RELIGION.
      • THOSE WHO REJECTED OR NEGLECTED CHRIST (PSA 97:3-4 ISA 13:9 ZEC 14:12 REV 19:19-21)
  • REVIEW OF THE MASTER TIME-LINE CHART: (Lesson #02)
    • LOCATE THE COLUMN IN THE CENTER OF YOUR CHART THAT IS MARKED LIVING JEWS, NON-BELIEVING AND BELIEVING; AND THE COLUMN THAT IS MARKED LIVING GENTILES, NON-BELIEVING AND BELIEVING.
      • FOLLOW THESE COLUMNS THROUGH THE TRIBULATION PERIOD TO SEE WHAT HAPPENS TO THESE GROUPS OF PEOPLE AT THE BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON.
        • YOU WILL SEE THAT BOTH COLUMNS MARKED NON-BELIEVING JEWS AND NON-BELIEVING GENTILES END AT THE BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON. IN OTHER WORDS, ONLY BELIEVING JEWS AND GENTILES LIVE THROUGH THE BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON AND THE EVENT OF THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST TO ENTER INTO THE MILLENNIAL KINGDOM.
    • YOU WILL ALSO NOTICE THAT OLD TESTAMENT SAINTS AND MARTYRED TRIBULATION SAINTS ARE RESURRECTED AT THE END OF THE TRIBULATION PERIOD. THIS EVENT IS MARKED WITH A GREEN =3=.
