The Second Coming of Christ

Revelation 1:7 says, “Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him…” Jesus Christ will soon split the clouds and come to reward the saint and judge the sinner. We will discuss the Second Coming of Jesus to the earth on today’s edition of End of the Age!

      Hello John,
      I have attached below an excerpt from Pastor Baxter’s Revelation commentary, I hope this is helpful.
      The Marriage Supper of the Lamb
      The Bible teaches us that the Marriage Supper will be a meeting in the air. I Thessalonians 4:16-17 says,
      For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
      This is the wonderful rapture of the church. The Bible teaches us the Holy Ghost is the power that will transform us. Romans 8:11 says,
      But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
      The Bible says that Jesus will serve His bride at the Marriage Supper. Luke 12:36-37 says,
      And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that, when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately. Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them.
      The Supper of the Great God
      The only reference to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb is found in Revelation 19:9,
      And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb.
      In the latter part of Revelation 19, the Bible describes the great supper of our God. It is the time when God will give the beasts of the field and the fowls of the air the flesh of kings and generals and princes to eat. Is the great supper of our God at Armageddon the Marriage Supper of the Lamb? I believe it is a different supper, that there are two suppers. There were two harvests in Revelation 14, and there are two suppers because of these harvests. Lets read about harvest number two, the harvest of the wrath of God.
      The Word of God
      Revelation 19:11-15 says,
      And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
      We know who we are talking about here because we know who the Word of God is. John 1:4 says,
      In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
      Then, John 1:14 says,
      And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
      The Word who was made flesh was Jesus Christ, who was God manifest in the flesh. The Bible calls Him Emmanuel, which being interrupted is ―God with us‖. Revelation 19 tells us that the one who is coming back, whose eyes are like a flame of fire, His name is the Word of God.
      God‘s wrath is building up against a world that condones sin of any kind, against a world where the word sin no longer means anything. The Bible says, ―and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.‖
      Revelation 19:16-18 says,
      And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS. And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.
      At this point, the armies of this world will be gathering toward Jerusalem for the Battle of Armageddon. However, Israel will not be alone, because the Bible says the Lord shall go forth and fight for her as He did in the day of battle.
      Armageddon
      Revelation 19:19-20 continues,
      And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
      Whoever is Pope at that time will be the False Prophet, and the Antichrist, the world political leader, is the beast. Both of those men will be cast into the Lake of Fire burning with fire and brimstone at the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. Revelation 19:21 says,
      And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.
      Jesus Christ will return with His saints to the Mount of Olives, to be crowned King of Kings and Lord of Lords. What a day that will be!
