SALVATION QUESTION 102
There are some ministers who tell us the Lord isn't coming again. Is it true He is coming to earth again?
Without any offense to any, ministers might tell you anything. In a survey taken in December 1987 from 7400 clergymen of certain major denominations, 34% did not believe in the virgin birth. 33% did not believe in His resurrection, and 67% did not believe the Scriptures to be inspired of God.
There are three things the Lord said He would do before He ascended back to heaven:
The first of these He did ten days after He ascended. (Acts 2:1-4).
- 1. I WILL SEND THE COMFORTER (The Holy Spirit)... John 16:7.
- 2. I WILL BUILD MY CHURCH... Matthew 16:18.
- 3. I WILL COME AGAIN... John 14:3.
This He has completed. It is past. The second He is doing. He began on the Day of Pentecost and is continuing until this day. This He is doing, it is in the present. The third He has not fulfilled yet. He will not until the second is finished. When the Church is completely formed He will come again as He has promised and all believers will go to be with Him. This is future. This is the only thing that awaits fulfillment. He cannot come for His bride until she is complete. When the last soul will be saved nobody knows, but when it happens then He will come for His pearl of great price.
Will you be among them? Do you know Him as your personal Saviour from sin? Are you trusting in Him fully for salvation? Only those that do will be saved.
