Some ChristiansNew Year, New Creation. Read more ... » are afraid of his second coming“Ready or not, here I come...again.”. Read more ... ». It should not be! We should be joyful in that event and we should not afraid of it even an iota!

I. The End Time Shall Come With Power and Glory

Mark 13:24-27 says, “But after the sufferingA Man Tries to Walk on the Water, Look What Does He Get. Read more ... » of those days, ‘The sun will be darkened, the moon will not giveThree Deeds That Show the Intentions of the Shepherd and the Thief. Read more ... » its lightThe Logos Becomes Flesh.

Read more ... » and gather his elect from the four winds, from the ends of the earthCreatio ex Nihilo: Creation Through Amazing Words and Power.

The scenario in verses 24-27 shows the tribulation and suffering on earth, but like in the movieBRUNO is a Trash!. Read more ... » the protagonist shall be coming with his power and glory, and he shall gather and protectMy Prayer During the 2014 National Day of Prayer Celebration . Read more ... » his people. In these verses we should emphasize the joy of his second coming rather than the challenges and tribulations before his second coming.

Mark 13:28-31 says, “Now learn a lesson from the fig tree. When its branchesThe Four Kinds of Seeds: A Reflection of our Spirituality.

Heaven and earth will disappear, but my wordsHeaven or UFO?: The Liberating Words of Jesus. Read more ... » will never disappear.”Second-Coming

JesusJesus’ Strategy of Evangelism. Read more ... » gave the signs of his second coming, not only through the nature, but they are printed in our ScripturesHow to Ascertain God's Will?. Read more ... ». In MatthewThey Complain to the Landowner Simply Because He is Generous and Fair to All His Laborers. Read more ... » 24:3ff, Jesus ChristMy Prayer During the 2014 National Day of Prayer Celebration . Read more ... » gave signs of his second coming: false MessiahThe Messiah as The Lamb of God.

Read more ... », increase of lawlessness, loveWhat is the Greatest Commandment?. Read more ... » of many will grow cold, etc.

Therefore, as Christians we believeHeaven or UFO?: The Liberating Words of Jesus. Read more ... » that his second coming will be happening soon.

 III. The End Time Challenges Us to be Careful and Alert

Mark 13:32-37 says, “No one knows when that day or hour will come—not the angels in heaven, not the Son, but only the Father. Be careful! Watch out! Because you don’t know when the time will come. It’s like a man who went on a trip. As he left home, he put his servantsWhy the King Killed Those Who Did Not Attend His Son’s Wedding?. Read more ... » in charge, each with his own work, and he ordered the doorkeeper to be alert. So keep on watching, because you don’t know when the masterCome! Share Your Master’s Joy!. Read more ... » of the houseHeaven or UFO?: The Liberating Words of Jesus. Read more ... » is coming—whether in the evening, at three o’clock in the morning, or at dawn. Otherwise, he may come suddenly and find you asleep. I’m telling you what I’m telling everyone: Be alert!”

In verses 32-37, Jesus encourages and challenges us to do three things: be careful, watch out and be alert. It’s because nobody knows when he would be coming, nobody knows the time and day, only the Father knows that.secondcoming3
