THE KINGDOM AND THE LORD'S RETURN
(MIDI playing: The King is Coming)
The Kingdom of God has reached a position where it is about to enter a significant phase with the Return of our Lord Jesus Christ. Here is what the Bible reveals.
"Then comes the end, when He delivers the Kingdom to God the Father, when He puts an end to all rule and all authority and power. For He must reign till He has put all enemies under His feet. The last enemy that will be destroyed is death. For He has put all things under His feet. But when He says all things are put under Him, it is evident that He who put all things under Him is excepted. Now when all things are made subject to Him, then the Son Himself will also be subject to Him who put all things under Him, that God may be all in all." (1 Cor. 15:24-28)
Before the Lord's Return something is going to happen to this world that we live.
"For then there will be Great Tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect's sake those days will be shortened." (Mt. 24:21-22)
"Immediately after the Tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other." (Mt. 24:29-31)
"Behold, He is coming with clouds, and every eye will see Him, and they also who pierced Him. And all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of Him. Even so, Amen. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End,' says the Lord, 'who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty." (Rev. 1:7-8) "He who testifies to these things says, 'Surely I am coming quickly.' Amen. Even so, come Lord Jesus! The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen." (Rev. 22:20-21)
May God bless you
