SCRIPTURE: Revelation 19:6-16

MESSAGE SUMMARY
Jesus said He was coming back (see John 14:3), and an angel told His disciples He would come back to the earth (see Acts 1:11). The second coming of Christ will be the culmination of redemptive history.

Teaching: "The Second Coming of Christ"
Text: Revelation 19:6-16

Path

Jesus said He was coming back (see John 14:3), and an angel told His disciples He would come back to the earth (see Acts 1:11). The second coming of Christ will be the culmination of redemptive history. After history runs its sinister course, after the final period of man's rebellion, Satan's retaliation, and God's judgment is poured out, Jesus will return to planet earth. In this teaching, Pastor Skip considers four aspects of His return as found in Revelation 19 and throughout the Scriptures. His path through the text is:

  1. Preceded by a Supper (vv. 6-9)
  2. Predicted by the Scripture (v. 10)
  3. Punctuated by a Slaughter (vv. 11-16)
  4. Performed by a Savior (vv. 15-16)
Points

Preceded by a Supper (vv. 6-9)Predicted by the Scripture (v. 10)Punctuated by a Slaughter (vv. 11-16)Performed by a Savior (vv. 15-16)Practice

Connect Up: After Christ's physical return to earth, He will rule for 1,000 years (see Revelation 20:1-6). What city will be the center of that rule (see Zechariah 8:3)? Discuss the following aspects of the millennium: it will be a time of peace (see Micah 4:2-4), joy (see Isaiah 61:7-10), comfort (see Isaiah 40:1-2), obedience (see Jeremiah 31:33), holiness (see Isaiah 35:8), truth (see Isaiah 65:16), and knowledge (see Isaiah 11:9; Habakkuk 2:14).

Connect In: What will Christians do at Christ's second coming and during the millennium? Discuss the following: Connect Out: Like the rapture and tribulation, the second coming of Christ can be a means to reach people for Christ. How would you go about sharing the biblical truth of the second coming with an unbeliever? What aspect(s) of it do you think an unbeliever would question? What aspect(s) of it do you think can lead toward genuine conversion (i.e., the reality of judgment, etc.)?
