Some people have been resurrected since then. After the resurrection of those who will inherit celestial glory, another group will be resurrected: When all these people have been resurrected, the First Resurrection will be completed.
The wicked who are living at the time of the Second Coming of the Lord will be destroyed in the flesh. They, along with the wicked who are already dead, will have to wait until the last resurrection.
All of the remaining dead will rise to meet God. He will take His rightful place as King of heaven and earth. When Jesus comes, He will establish His government on the earth. The Church will become part of that kingdom. He will rule all the people of the earth in peace for 1, years. When Jesus Christ first came to the earth, He did not come in glory.
He was born in a lowly stable and laid in a manger of hay. He did not come with great armies as the Jews had expected of their Savior. He was rejected and crucified.
What are your thoughts and feelings as you contemplate the events of the Second Coming? When Jesus Christ was born, very few people knew that the Savior of the world had come. When He comes again, there will be no doubt who He is. No one knows the exact time that the Savior will come again. The Lord used a parable to give us an idea of the time of His coming:.
The Lord has also given us some signs to let us know when His coming is near. After revealing the signs, He cautioned:. We should live each day the best we can, just as Jesus taught when He was on the earth. We can look to the prophet for guidance and follow his counsel. We can live worthy to have the Holy Ghost guide us.
Behold, I come quickly. Why should we be concerned about our preparedness rather than the exact timing of the Second Coming? Articles of Faith 1: The church has long professed to look to the Saviour's advent as the consummation of her hopes. Now the great deceiver will make it appear that Christ has come.
The Second Coming is a Christian and Islamic belief regarding the future (or past ) return of Jesus Christ after his incarnation and ascension to heaven about two. The Second Coming generally refers to the Christian belief that Jesus Christ will return to earth. Second Coming may also refer to.
In different parts of the earth, Satan will manifest himself among men as a majestic being of dazzling brightness, resembling the description of the Son of God given by John in the Revelation. The glory that surrounds him is unsurpassed by anything that mortal eyes have yet beheld. The shout of triumph rings out upon the air: His voice is soft and subdued, yet full of melody. In gentle, compassionate tones he presents some of the same gracious, heavenly truths which the Saviour uttered; he heals the diseases of the people, and then, in his assumed character of Christ, he claims to have changed the Sabbath to Sunday, and commands all to hallow the day which he has blessed.
A number of specific dates have been predicted for the Second Coming of Christ, some now in the distant past, others still in the future. Stenger notes that Jesus is recorded as saying, " He makes similar predictions in five other places in the Gospels; Mark 9: In Stenger's view, when the coming did not happen within the life-times of his disciples, as Jesus prophesied, Christianity changed its emphasis to the Resurrection and promise of eternal life.
He, verily, hath again come down from Heaven even as He came down from it the first time. Beware that thou dispute not with Him even as the Pharisees disputed with Him without a clear token or proof. Open your eyes, O concourse of bishops, that ye may behold your Lord seated upon the Throne of might and glory.
We, in truth, have given Ourself as a ransom for your own lives. Alas, when We came once again, We beheld you fleeing from Us, whereat the eye of My loving-kindness wept sore over My people. In Islam, Jesus or Isa ; Arabic: However, Muslims do not recognize Jesus as the Son of God, as they believe God has no equals, but instead as a prophet. In the Quran , the second coming of Jesus is heralded in Az-Zukhruf the Quran's 43rd surah or chapter as a sign of the day of judgement. And Jesus shall be a Sign for the coming of the Hour of Judgment: In his famous interpretation of the Qur'an or Tafsir al-Qur'an al-Azim, Ibn Kathir also uses this verse as proof of Jesus' second coming in the Qur'an.
There are also Hadiths that clearly foretell of Jesus' future return such as: The Hour will not be established until the son of Mary i. Jesus descends amongst you as a just ruler, he will break the cross, kill the pigs, and abolish the Jizya tax. Money will be in abundance so that nobody will accept it as charitable gifts. According to Islamic tradition, Jesus' descent will be in the midst of wars fought by the Mahdi lit. He will then join the Mahdi in his war against the Dajjal. Jesus, considered in Islam as a Muslim one who submits to God and one of God's messengers, will abide by the Islamic teachings.
Thus, there will be one community, that of Islam. Sahih Muslim , After the death of the Mahdi , Jesus will assume leadership.
This is a time associated in Islamic narrative with universal peace and justice. Islamic texts also allude to the appearance of Ya'juj and Ma'juj known also as Gog and Magog , ancient tribes which will disperse and cause disturbance on earth. God, in response to Jesus's prayers, will kill them by sending a type of worm in the napes of their necks. Muslims will then perform the Salat al-Janazah funeral prayer for him and bury him in the city of Medina in a grave left vacant beside Muhammad. Judaism believes that Jesus is one of the false Jewish Messiah claimants because he failed to fulfill any Messianic prophecies , which include:.
Regarding the Christian idea that these prophecies will be fulfilled during a "second coming," Ohr Samayach states "we find this to be a contrived answer, since there is no mention of a second coming in the Jewish Bible. Second, why couldn't God accomplish His goals the first time round? The Ahmadi sect, who identify as Muslims, believe that the promised Mahdi and Messiah arrived in the person of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad — This is rejected by many Muslims, who consider the Ahmadiyya not to be Muslims. The hadith sayings of the Islamic Prophet Muhammad and the Bible indicated that Jesus would return during the latter days.
Islamic tradition commonly depicts that Jesus, upon his second coming, would be an Ummati Muslim and a follower of Muhammad and that he would revive the truth of Islam rather than fostering a new religion. Ahmadis believe that Ghulam Ahmad demonstrated that the prophecy in Muslim and Christian religious texts were traditionally misunderstood to suggest that Jesus of Nazareth himself would return, and hold that Jesus had survived the crucifixion and had died a natural death.
Ahmadis consider Mirza Ghulam Ahmad the founder of the movement , in both his character and teachings, to be representative of Jesus; and subsequently, he attained the same spiritual rank of Prophethood as Jesus. Thus, Ahmadis believe this prediction was fulfilled and continued by his movement. In modern times some traditional Indian religious leaders have moved to embrace Jesus as an avatar , or incarnation, of God.
In light of this, the Indian guru Paramahansa Yogananda , author of Autobiography of a Yogi , wrote an extensive commentary on the Gospels published in in the two-volume set The Second Coming of Christ: The Resurrection of the Christ Within You. In the introduction of this book, Yogananda wrote that the true Second Coming is the resurrection within you of the Infinite Christ Consciousness. Also stated in the Book of Luke - "Neither shall they say, Lo here!
Daya Mata wrote in the preface of The Second Coming of Christ that the "two-volume scriptural treatise thus represents the inclusive culmination of Paramahansa Yogananda's divine commission to make manifest to the world the essence of original Christianity as taught by Jesus Christ.
