8. The Clear Signs of Christ’s Second Coming
(Matthew 24:27-31)
27   For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
28   For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
29   Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
30   And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
31   And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

The Second Coming of Christ will be the most important event in the future. All historical developments until now have been directed toward this event. Blessed is the man that is prepared to meet His King, who is coming with great glory.
The Creator will come with all His power for the last harvest. We are told, "For wherever the carcass is, there the eagles will be gathered together." In the book of Revelation (19:17-21) we read that the angel of the Lord calls all birds together to feed on the carcasses of the slain enemies of Christ. He will conquer the Beast and all his followers, and establish His kingdom of peace on our earth.
Shortly before the next coming of Christ, changes in nature will take place. The light of the sun and the moon will be obscured, there will be earthquakes and raging seas, and the heavenly bodies will be moved in some way. These changes in space also indicate a spiritual struggle, for Christ will come with all His angels triumphing over the armies of Satan. All will see the sign of the Son of Man in the heavens.
At that time, Christ will raise those who are dead. Those who rejected God will have no hope, and wail because there is no place to flee from the light of God. Dear friend, turn to the Lord while there is time! Confess to Him your sins, and the blood of Christ will purify you forever. His mighty Spirit will give you life and make you a clean spiritual person. Without Christ's spirit in you, you will stay dead and corrupt. The angels of judgment will gather you and throw you as a dry log into the flames of eternal fire. But if you are filled with the goodness of the Holy Spirit, Christ will know you on the last day and invite you to His marriage feast along with all other believers. By accepting Christ, you become a part of His spiritual body, where His light will flood over you. You will be overwhelmed in your senses, and Jesus will say to you, "Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; you are mine" (Isaiah 43:1).

 

Prayer:   Holy Lord, I am not worthy of raising my face to the brightness of Your glory that is coming to us. Forgive my proud nature, wipe out my lies, cleanse me from my filthiness, and sanctify me completely that I become a part of Your love and remain a member of Your spiritual body, prepared for Your great coming. Come, Lord Jesus, for darkness is increasing. Come quickly.

 

Question:

220. What is the sign of the Son of Man’s coming?
