Hello! This is Richard Vaughn

Today’s message isThe Real Truth About the Second Coming of Jesus – Pt 1”

Before we begin, let us seek God’s guidance, “Heavenly Father, as we begin this most important subject regarding the real truth about the second coming of Jesus, I pray that You bless those listening today with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, so that we may understand that you Jesus is coming far sooner than expected and in a manner the church is not preparing for. We pray for wisdom, knowledge and understanding so that we may live in the center of Your revealed will, as we ask in Jesus Name, Amen.”

Right now, I continue to keep my pledge, to cry aloud and spare not, to lift up my voice like a trumpet and to show God’s people where they are transgressing God’s law.

Dwight L. Moody, famous American evangelist (1837-1899) found the event of the second coming is mentioned over 2,500 times in the Bible. Over two thousand years ago the vast majority of religious people had access to the same Old Testament scriptures we do, where there are over 300 prophecies regarding His first coming, which Jesus fulfilled, but they missed acknowledging Jesus as the Messiah at His first coming.

"Why?" How could they miss it with all that Bible evidence? For two main reasons; the common people were not reading the Scriptures for themselves and the religious leaders of that day had created a theory based on several Bible verses taken out of context.
They created a theory that when Messiah comes, He's going to be a great conquering king. He's going to sit on the throne of David, rule the world, and to do away with the hated Romans. It sounded great, but it wasn't truly Scriptural. They took the prophecies that related to His second and third coming and mistakenly applied them to His first coming.

When Israel of old thought the Messiah would come with a rod of iron, He came as a Lamb. They were looking for someone to free them from the Romans, when Jesus' mission was to free them from sin. Satan was so successful at deceiving the people in Christ's day, because people weren't reading the Scriptures for themselves. This false theory brought in by religious leaders, was blindly followed, which proves you must check out the truth for yourself.

Jesus realized this when He came to this earth, and therefore, in Matthew 24:3 & 4, when the disciples asked Him, "Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?" the very first thing Jesus said to them was, "Take heed that no man deceive you."

In the 260 chapters of the New Testament, the subject of the second coming is mentioned 331 times. In fact, as important as His first coming was, there's only one text in the Bible about His first coming to every eight texts in the Bible about His second coming. The Bible mentions the Second Coming once in every 25 verses in the New Testament.

Let's look at the promise in John 14:1-3 "Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself: that where I am, there ye may be also."
That's the blessed hope each of us have. But note, He doesn't say He'll come down to earth at the 2nd coming, and set up His kingdom here. He says, "I will come again and receive you unto Myself, that where I am, there you may be also." He doesn't say He's coming to join us here, He says He's coming to take us there, where He has gone. And He's in heaven. He went to prepare a mansion for us.
