Jesus is Coming Back

It is important this morning that we continue to remember what we talked about last week as we talk about the second coming of Christ. We have primary doctrines, secondary doctrines and third doctrines.
Primary: We are willing to die for
Examples: Jesus was God in the Flesh
Saved by grace through faith alone
Secondary: Baptism of infants
Third: Christian brothers and sisters in the same church disagree about the interpretation of scripture.
Some of these third doctrines you might disagree with me on but we can disagree on these third doctrines and still be friends.
Matthew 24:30–31 HCSB
“Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the peoples of the earth will mourn; and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. He will send out His angels with a loud trumpet, and they will gather His elect from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other.
This is the end of the intermediate state and this will also bring about the final judgement.
Acts 1:9–11 HCSB
After He had said this, He was taken up as they were watching, and a cloud took Him out of their sight. While He was going, they were gazing into heaven, and suddenly two men in white clothes stood by them. They said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking up into heaven? This Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come in the same way that you have seen Him going into heaven.”

Now may our God and Father Himself, and our Lord Jesus, direct our way to you.

May He make your hearts blameless in holiness before our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus with all His saints. Amen.
1 Thessalonians 5:23
1 Thessalonians 5:23 HCSB

Therefore be alert, since you don’t know what day your Lord is coming.

I love how personal our God is. He knows you. He says I am going away to prepare a place for you. I will receive you to myself.
1 Thessalonians 4:16–17 HCSB
For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the archangel’s voice, and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.
