9:58 PM - The Second Coming
By Pete Garcia
The final event in which Gods interjects directly into the affairs of fallen man, is what we know as the Second Coming. The reason we call it the Second Coming is that this will be the second time Christ physically returns to the earth. This is opposed to the Rapture of the Church, where we believers are physically caught up to meet Christ in the air and go back with Him to the Father's house for a period of time. No, when Christ comes at the Second Coming, there will be no mistaking it for He will return and the whole of creation will serve as a witness. The sky will split open, and the armies of heaven will follow Him, making the grandest procession a king had or will ever make.
The Second Coming is as different from the Rapture of the Church, as His First Coming was from His second. In the first, He came wrapped in human flesh, as a humble servant. In His second, He returns in His glorified form as the victorious King of kings. The first coming He allowed men to mock, beat, and crucify Him…but at His Second, He speaks a word and millions are slain. He masked His divinity at His first coming, so He could redeem men, as a man. He will not mask His divinity in His second coming....for every knee will bow at His Kingship. At His first, only a Star marked His place for a few shepherds. At His second, the world will see the sky's parting and be in terror. He is the rightful heir, and the world that remains in that time, will be awestruck at His coming and even those who are in hell will see His coming. (Rev. 1:7) The sky will part for Him and the armies of Heaven will follow.
