Time of the Second Coming of Christ -
Sep 11, 2016
God never intended for people to be ruled by a king. He intended that people be ruled by God’s chosen instruments; those who represent His apostolic government of Spirit, those who would hear His voice and live in the heavenly realm, the Spirit realm. His leaders who represent God’s voice of manifested power and authority, who obey His plans and purposes for humanity and execute them on the earth. Remember that God directed Samuel to anoint Saul as king but that was not God’s heart. Actually, the people wanted a king. Because the people did not want to hear from God for themselves, God gave the people a king after their own heart.
We are approaching the Second coming of Christ. The books of Luke and Isaiah speak about His first and second coming. The scriptures that speak about Christ’s second coming show two things happening simultaneously; the glory being released and justice and judgment comes upon the ungodly. The judgment upon those who have opposed Christ causes them to repent and come forth in righteousness.
The purpose of Christ coming the first time was to set the captives free, to recover their sight, to give them illumination and understanding, and to reveal to them their true identity in Him, Salvation. Hebrews 9:28 says, that the second time Christ comes He is not coming to eradicate sin but to bring full salvation. Why? Because He overcame death, hell and the grave the first time He came.
Jesus Christ, the Word made flesh, was birthed in the physical by a virgin. The first time He came to earth was to implement salvation. The second time Jesus comes He will bring forth A PEOPLE, OF HIS NAME, GOD’S OFFSPRING, MANIFESTED SONS WHO ARE CALLED ISRAEL. They are no longer Jacob, tricksters, schemers, usurpers of authority but are those who have overcome, who have been transformed into Israel (God rules). No longer they live, but Christ now lives in them. A PEOPLE no longer ruled by their senses, emotions, feelings or intellect but a people with a VIRGIN SOUL who are married to the SPIRIT to bring forth the knowledge of the glory of God that will cover the earth so that the rest of mankind will seek Him.
Acts 15:14, 16-17 Simeon (Simon Peter) has described how God first concerned Himself about taking from among the Gentiles (NATIONS) a people for His name [to honor Him and be identified with Him]. (16) After these things I will return, and I will rebuild the tent of David which has fallen; I will rebuild its ruins, and I will restore it. (17) So that the rest of mankind may seek the Lord, and all the nations who are called by my name. amp/nasb
In Luke 4:20, after reading from the book of Isaiah, Jesus closed the book. What was the significance of His action? He was communicating that everything He came to do was finished. Jesus was also proclaiming the favorable year of the Lord to a people who were called by His name, who would, in His second coming, rebuild the ancient ruins and restore the former desolations.
Luke 4:18-21 – The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim release to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind, to set free those who are oppressed, (19) To proclaim the favorable year of the Lord.” (20) And He closed the book, gave it back to the attendant and sat down; and the eyes of all in the synagogue were fixed on Him. (21) And He began to say to them, “Today this Scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing.”
Isaiah chapter sixty-one gives us clarity of what will transpire at the second coming of Christ. As we observed in Luke 4, Jesus shut the book right after He read “To proclaim the favorable year of the Lord.” Isaiah 61:2 picks up where Luke 4:19 ends. Isaiah 61:2 describes the next calendar event to transpire. After the year of the Lord comes the day of vengeance of our God.
Isaiah 61:1-2 – The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the afflicted; He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to captives and freedom to prisoners; (2) To proclaim the favorable year of the Lord and the day of vengeance of our God’ to comfort all who mourn
So in His second coming we see the day of vengeance, the day of justice and judgement to the ungodly of those who disobey and oppose God (Jude 1:14-15). 2 Thessalonians 1:5-8 – This is a plain indication of God’s righteous judgment so that you will be considered worthy of the kingdom of God, for which indeed you are suffering. (6) For after all it is only just for God to repay with affliction those who afflict you, (7) and to give relief to you who are afflicted and to us as well when the Lord Jesus will be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels in flaming fire, (8) dealing out retribution to those who do not know God and to those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus.
Hebrews 2:10 says that He is bringing many sons to glory to perfect their salvation through suffering. Those who overcome, no longer allowing their soul to rule them but are led by the Spirit, who have been established in Him without spot or wrinkle will rule and reign with Christ in the first resurrection (Rev. 20:4-6). The overcomers, like the wise virgins with their lamps full of oil, symbolic of being full of the Spirit, will receive their glorified bodies in the second coming and will rebuild the ancient ruins and former desolations of many generations.
Isaiah 61:2-4 – To proclaim the favorable year of the Lord and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn, (3) To grant those who mourn in Zion, giving them a garland instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting. So they will be called oaks (trees- we are those trees) of righteousness, the planting (established) of the Lord, that He may be glorified. (4) Then they will rebuild the ancient ruins, they will raise up the former devastations; and they will repair the ruined cities, the desolations of many generations.
God’s true Ecclesia church will arise; that is His government of Spirit to establish God’s Kingdom on earth as priests and kings. Isaiah 60:1 says, Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD has risen upon you. Look up your redemption draws nigh! Psalm 24:7 says, Lift up your heads, O gates, and be lifted up, O ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in! We are at the most pivotal moment in history; to see the coming of the Lord on clouds (offspring) to bring forth His justice in the earth.
Matthew 24:30 – And then the sign (event, direction, to convey a message, prodigy, visible manifestation, convey information or identify) of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the SON OF MAN COMING ON THE CLOUDS (offspring) OF THE SKY with power and great glory.
Isaiah 26:9 – At night my soul longs for You, indeed, my spirit within me seeks You diligently; for when the earth experiences Your judgments the inhabitants of the world learn righteousness.
As we have been praying faithfully and have been coming into agreement with God, He has been revealing to us His purposes and plans. God is dismantling evil networks and destroying principalities over cities, states and nations. Through dreams and visions God is revealing to our corporate body what He is doing in the earth. We are seeing and hearing the results through events that have confirmed our dreams and visions. He is invading and overtaking the corruption of our government, Hollywood, and the media and revealing all the puppets that are operating behind the scenes. He is dismantling the trafficking and abuse of children, prostitution rings, drug lords, and networks of ISIS. God alone orchestrates and controls all things. He allows all things in order to bring forth His righteousness and His purpose in the earth. God alone is sovereign. An example of God’s sovereignty and power can be seen in the book of Daniel with the account of King Nebuchadnezzar. In the scriptures below King Nebuchadnezzar gives us quite a revelation into the pride of man and how quickly God can humble us until we recognize who really governs and rules.
Daniel 2:21 (NLT) – He controls the course of world events; he removes kings and sets up other kings. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the scholars.
Daniel 4:30-32 – The king reflected and said, 'Is this not Babylon the great, which I myself have built as a royal residence by the might of my power and for the glory of my majesty?' (31)"While the word was in the king's mouth, a voice came from heaven, saying, 'King Nebuchadnezzar, to you it is declared: sovereignty has been removed from you, (32) and you will be driven away from mankind, and your dwelling place will be with the beasts of the field. You will be given grass to eat like cattle, and seven periods of time will pass over you until you recognize that the Most High is ruler over the realm of mankind and bestows it on whomever He wishes.'
How foolish mankind is to think they can rule and reign and get away with their evil plots for their own ambition, greed and power. Jesus said “it is finished”!!
This is the greatest hour of the earth as long as you are on God’s side; for you will behold your King. For those of you who are opposing God, there is a great shaking that is going to occur to bring forth righteousness in you; not to hurt you but to resurrect you to your true identity in Christ. Repent for your redemption draws nigh!
Thus says the Lord, every kingdom of man will fall and every eye will see and know that I am God the Creator, the lover of their soul that they may know I Am that I Am.
He has been waiting for His true church to arise, to seek His face, and to hear His voice and to come into agreement with what He has already purposed and planned from the beginning of time. As Ecclesiastes 3:15 says... “That which is has been already and that which will be has already been, for God seeks what has passed by.”
