Sermon About Christ Come Again

When Will The Second Coming Be? When Will The Rapture Happen?

The Bible says that Jesus will return again in glory. But when exactly will he come back? And how will he return?

1. Will Christ Come Again?

He promised He would (Jn. 14:1-3)
Jesus said, “…when He is revealed, we shall be like Him…” (1 Jn. 3:2)
Peter declared that some would scoff, but He was coming “as a thief in the night” (2 Peter 3:3-10)

We don't know when it will happen, but we do know what happens after he returns.
The Bible tells us that Jesus will return as the Son of Man with his angels. He will gather up those who are alive at that time and take them to heaven. 

Paul wrote often of His coming

  • Heb. 9:27-28—“…He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation”
  • 2 Thess. 1:7—He shall be “…revealed from heaven with His mighty angels”
  • 1 Thess. 4:16—“…with a shout, with the voice of an archangel”
  • Angels said He would come in like manner as He had ascended (Acts 1:10-11)

2. The Rapture.

How Will He Come Again?
Visible to all
  • In like manner (Acts 1:10-11)
  • “…every eye shall see Him” (Rev. 1:7)
  • Without warning (1 Thess. 5:1-3)
  • With His angels (2 Thess. 1:7; Matt. 25:31)
The rapture will happen when Jesus returns to earth. They say that believers will be taken away by Jesus and the rest of humanity will be left behind to face God's judgment.
