Generation and the 2nd Coming of Christ – Lesson 5


I Thessalonians 5:2,3
For yourselves know beautifully which the working day of the Lord so cometh as being a thief during the night time. For every time they shall say. Peace and protection: then unexpected destruction cometh on them, as travail upon a woman with youngster; plus they shall not escape.

The beginning of your 70th Week of Daniel may even commence The nice Working day on the Lord. God has permitted mankind a minimum of 6,000 several years of testing. Will persons go on in rebellion and sin against their Creator, or will they admit God and switch from their continual selfishness, and self-righteousness?

Recorded heritage reveals the effects. Just to think about the continuous advancement of weapons demonstrates the cruel and damaging tendencies of guy. But God has appointed a time known as the working day on the Lord.

Zephaniah 1:15,17,eighteen
The nice working day in the Lord is close to,… That day is every day of wrath, a day of difficulties, and distress, a day of darkness and gloom, daily of clouds and thick darkness… And I’ll bring distress on Gentlemen, that they should wander like blind men, as they have sinned versus the Lord:… Neither their silver nor their gold shall have the ability to deliver them from the working day on the Lord’s wrath.

Joel 1:fifteen
Alas with the day! For the working day from the Lord is at hand, and being a destruction through the Almighty shall it appear.

Isaiah two:12,17-19
For your day in the Lord of hosts shall be on Each one that’s very pleased and lofty,… And also the haughtiness of Males shall be designed reduced: and also the Lord by itself shall be exalted in that day. Along with the idols He shall totally abolish. They usually shall go into the holes with the rocks, and in to the caves on the earth, for concern with the Lord, and for the glory of His majesty, when He ariseth to shake terribly the earth.

There are plenty of other comparable references in Scripture for the day of your Lord. Numerous check with a commencing fulfillment and also a ultimate fulfillment. Earlier judgments have already been more community and distinct. The ultimate just one will probably be all over the world and close gentleman’s rule of the earth. The Lord on your own shall be exalted in that working day.

These judgments are done and recorded alongside one another inside the Revelation since the situations of The good Tribulation. The judgments of the first half (3 and one/2 years) are revealed within the seven broken seals and also the 7 trumpets (Revelation six-nine). People of the next half (three and 1/two many years) are proven from the 7 vials of wrath (Revelation 15:seven). Another thing these judgments will attain is usually to reshape the earth, change the environment, water cycle, and climate patterns to that of the entire world before the Good Flood.

God sends His two witnesses, Enoch and Elijah, to earth right before the beginning of these judgments as heralds. They quickly get started contacting with the judgments of God to generally be sent down from heaven.

Revelation 11:3,six
And I will give ability unto my two witnesses, plus they shall prophesy a 1,000, two hundred, and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth… These have energy to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days in their prophecy: and possess power above waters to turn them to blood, and also to smite the earth with all plagues, as normally as they are going to.

This will likely result in good famines all around the planet, the 3rd seal, plus the 3rd horseman from the 4 of your Apocalypse will arrive (Revelation six:five,six).

As the h2o evaporates through the oceans into your environment, there’ll be 4 angels inside the four quarters in the earth Keeping the four winds, so that the moist air would not blow more than the continents and convey the rain (Revelation 7:1). The moisture will go on to ascend into your higher environment, Therefore restoring the waters previously mentioned the firmament as while  Lake Berryessa in the preflood environment. All water amounts will diminish – rivers, lakes, oceans, and ground h2o tables will sink. Excellent fires will outcome with the dryness. “The 3rd Section of trees was burnt up and all eco-friendly grass was burnt up” (Revelation eight:seven).

Joel 1:13-20
The herds of cattle are perplexed, since they haven’t any pasture; for the fire hath devoured the pastures from the wilderness, and also the flame hath burned the many trees of the sector. The beasts of the sector cry also unto thee: for your rivers of waters are dried up…

Revelation 16:8,9
The fourth angel poured out his vial upon the Sunlight: and electricity was given unto him to scorch Males with hearth, and Adult males were scorched with excellent warmth, and blasphemed the identify of God, which hath power more than these plagues: and they repented not to offer Him glory.

Amos 9:5,six describes what seems to generally be the melting of The nice ice caps, briefly increasing ocean concentrations that may damage coastal places, which includes fantastic metropolitan areas and ports.

As well as Lord God of hosts is He that toucheth the land, and it shall soften, and everything dwell therein shall mourn: and it shall rise up wholly like a flood; and shall be drowned, as because of the flood of Egypt. It is He that calleth with the waters of the sea, and poureth them out on the deal with with the earth: The Lord is His Title.

Following the burning of Babylon, that town will likely be lined with these waters. Jeremiah 51:forty two: “The sea is occur up upon Babylon: she is covered with the large number of waves thereof.”

Earthquakes and volcanic eruptions that darken the skies will raise severely. This pertains to the opening of the sixth seal.

Revelation six:twelve,fourteen
Lo, there was an incredible earthquake; as well as the Sunshine became black as sackcloth of hair, as well as moon grew to become as blood… And every mountain and island have been moved out of their sites.

This seems for being the sliding of the earth’s crust in excess of its mantle. Concurrently, asteroids will drop from your skies as “The celebrities of heaven fell on the earth, at the same time as a fig tree casteth her premature figs, when she’s shaken of a mighty wind.” (Revelation 6:13.)

People will admit God’s judgments: “The good Working day of His wrath is occur; and who shall manage to stand!” (Revelation 6:seventeen.)

Isaiah 24:19
The earth shall reel to and fro similar to a drunkard.

Lastly the best shaking of all.

Revelation sixteen:eighteen,20
And also the seventh angel poured out his vial into your air… And there was a great earthquake, for example was not since men had been on the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great… And each island fled absent, plus the mountains were not identified.

Haggai two:six,7
For thus saith the Lord of hosts:… I will shake the heavens, as well as the earth, and The ocean and the dry land; and I will shake all nations, and the will of countries shall arrive.

The depths of the sea is going to be crammed. The shifting crust will build voids wherever many waters will fill and become trapped. This tends to lead to fantastic underground reservoirs of water referred to as the “good deep” prior to the Fantastic Flood.

There’ll be no mountains, only Mild hills. The formerly ice covered spots. Will be fertile plains. The previous oceans will probably be absent, now only shallow and narrow seas. Springs within the restored fountains of The good deep will wipe out deserts. The drinking water vapor blanket will likely be restored in the environment. All this modifications the earth back again into the shape of the beginning generation. All this prepares with the grand kingdom age of your one,000 calendar year reign of Christ over the earth.
