I. The Coming of Christ Will Be Just as It Went Up

Our exploration begins by understanding that just as Christ ascended into heaven, He will return in the same manner. Acts 1:11 reminds us that as the disciples watched Jesus ascend into heaven, the angel proclaimed that He would return in the same way. This promise underscores the certainty of His return and the consistency of His divine plan.

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)

II. Every Eye Shall See Him (Revelation 1:7)

In Revelation 1:7, we are assured that when Christ comes again, "every eye shall see Him." His return will not be hidden or limited; it will be a universal event, visible to all. This truth emphasizes the undeniable and far-reaching impact of His return on the world.

III. Without Warning (1 Thessalonians 5:1-3)

The timing of Christ's return remains unknown. 1 Thessalonians 5:1-3 warns that it will come "like a thief in the night." Just as a thief arrives unexpectedly, so will Christ's return. This reminds us of the importance of being prepared at all times, living in readiness for His glorious appearance.

IV. With His Angels (2 Thessalonians 1:7; Matthew 25:31)

The second coming of Christ will be accompanied by His angels, as revealed in 2 Thessalonians 1:7 and Matthew 25:31. His return will be a majestic and grand event, attended by the heavenly host. This signifies the divine authority and importance of His return.

V. Noisily (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; 1 Corinthians 15:52)

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 and 1 Corinthians 15:52 describe Christ's return with a shout, the voice of the archangel, and the trumpet of God. This vivid imagery underscores the triumphant nature of His coming. It will be a moment of triumph, heralded by the heavenly proclamation.
