Coming, looking forward to
the Israelites looked for the Messiah, king, deliverer
we are looking for that same person to return and rule
the first advent He was for the most part rejected and killed
Though the prophets foretold the event it was missed

The Prophets.

Genesis 3:15 KJV 1900
And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
Right from the beginning God promised a deliverer that would defeat satan
Genesis 49:10 LEB
The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor the ruler’s staff between his feet, until Shiloh comes. And to him shall be the obedience of nations.
Shiloh the Messiah, the peaceful one
Isaiah 7:14 LEB
Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Look! the virgin is with child and she is about to give birth to a son, and she shall call his name ‘God with us.’
Micah 5:2 LEB
But you, O Bethlehem Ephrathah, too small to be among the clans of Judah, from you one will go out for me, to be ruler in Israel; and his origins are from of old, from ancient days.
Malachi 3:1 LEB
“Look! I am going to send my messenger, and he will prepare the way before me. And the Lord whom you are seeking will come suddenly to his temple, and the messenger of the covenant, in whom you are taking pleasure—look!—he is about to come,” says Yahweh of hosts.
John the Baptist
Mark 1:2–3 LEB
Just as it is written in the prophet Isaiah, “Behold, I am sending my messenger before your face, who will prepare your way, the voice of one shouting in the wilderness, ‘Prepare the way of the Lord, make straight his paths!’ ”
He will rule the world
From Davids throne
In Jerusalem
Isaiah 9:6–7 LEB
For a child has been born for us; a son has been given to us. And the dominion will be on his shoulder, and his name is called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. His dominion will grow continually, and to peace there will be no end on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and sustain it with justice and righteousness now and forever. The zeal of Yahweh of hosts will do this.
When Jesus did not perform these prophesies about being a ruler he was crucified
Isaiah 9 6-7
all of the other ones were ignored

And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to myself, so that where I am, you may be also.
1 Thessalonians 4:17 LEB
Then we who are alive, who remain, will be snatched away at the same time together with them in the clouds for a meeting with the Lord in the air, and thus we will be together with the Lord always.
1 Corinthians 15:51–52 LEB
Behold, I tell you a mystery: we will not all fall asleep, but we will all be changed, in a moment, in the blink of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.

Advent Part 2b

Second Coming The King With His Saints

when Christ returns
when Christ returns
Matthew 24:27–30 LEB
For just as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so the coming of the Son of Man will be. Wherever the corpse is, there the vultures will gather. “And immediately after the tribulation of those days, ‘the sun will be darkened and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of heaven will be shaken.’ And 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 arriving on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
Revelation 19:11–14 LEB
And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and the one seated on it was called “Faithful” and “True,” and with justice he judges and makes war. Now his eyes were a flame of fire, and on his head were many royal headbands having a name written that no one except he himself knows. And he was dressed in an outer garment dipped in blood, and his name is called the Word of God. And the armies that are in heaven, dressed in clean, white fine linen, were following him on white horses.
Jerusalem seen as the capital
look foreward and see His rule
Jerusalem seen as the capital
satan’s followers trying to stop it
We have the knowledge of history to see the First advent of Jesus
Knew he was born, lived, died, and rose again
some people refused to believe , and crucified Him
all of the prophesies came true,
there is more prophesies still to come that give the christian hope
but the prophesies are also a warning there is judgement coming
will you be like the unbelievers that crucified Jesus
