COMING...READY OR NOT!

For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good. (Titus 2:11-14)

At the second coming of Jesus Christ, all the dead will be raised for the final judgment. This is the end of the world and of our material universe. The angels will remove the wicked from among the righteous who will have been living among them right up till the end (see what Jesus teaches in Matthew 13). Jesus will bring those redeemed souls with him who had died previously and had gone on to paradise. All, both good and bad, will be judged before him on this last `day.` Those whose names are not written in the book of life (those who had not been born again, taking part in the `first resurrection` referenced in Revelation, that of being raised from spiritual death in sin to new life in Christ)...all sinners...will be turned into a hell of eternal separation from all that is God and good. Those who are judged righteous because of Christ will be given their final salvation at his coming which he brings for those who have followed him and obeyed him faithfully to the end. As to who belongs where, He sorts it out; not our business to decide!

Then, Jesus Christ will deliver up his kingdom (which is now a present reality, a spiritual kingdom in all hearts where his will now reigns supreme) to the Father, as time has crashed into eternity and true reality is revealed. Time exists no more, nor does the material, elemental universe we inhabit now. We no longer will possess human bodies nor even will we resemble the resurrected flesh and blood Christ, who now does not look like the Jesus who ascended (but is yet the same Jesus, but now is glorified in indescribable majesty), but rather we shall resemble the Son of God, for we shall see him as he truly is. We should not imagine that we will look anything like the bodies we inhabit now. As Paul teaches in 1 Cor. 15, does an oak tree resemble an acorn? Our spiritual bodies will be far different and far more glorious than any human, physical body.

`For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it,` said Jesus.
FEW people will attain to this heavenly glory, but those who have truly received and obeyed Jesus will become like him, joint heirs with the Son of God. If you really know your New Testament, rather than listening to false teachers and televangelists, you will recognize that THIS is what the New Testament teaches. Not some so-called `left-behind` Rapture (a doctrine that leaves the Bible behind!); not a seven-year so-called Great Tribulation;not a human world-ruling `Antichrist`; not an earthly 1000-year reign of Christ out of Jerusalem (we in the new Jerusalem, the true Zion and true Israel which is God`s church, are reigning NOW victoriously over sin because of Christ Jesus); none of the popularized fictions so easily swallowed by gullible `believers` who ignore the simple, plain teachings of the Bible to follow made-up lies and fictional nonsense spread by all who teach falsely about these matters and only pretend to know and to reveal biblical prophecy.
