The second coming of Christ is real. His return from heaven will be personal, visible and glorious, a blessed hope for which we must constantly be watchful and pray

Prior to the establishment of His kingdom on earth, Jesus will come for His Church, an event popularly referred to as the "Rapture." At that time the dead in Christ will be raised and living Christians will be caught up to meet the Lord in the air and be with Him forever.

In this first resurrection, those who have died in Christ will have their redeemed souls and spirits united with a body similar to Christ's glorified body. Christians living at the time of this event will not die, but will be changed to be like Christ.

 This expectation is a boosted for holy living, as well as a source of comfort.

 No one knows the day or the hour when this will take place.

After the Rapture of the Church, Christians will be brought before the judgment seat of Christ. He will reward them on the basis of the works they have accomplished.

 This will not be a judgment to determine their salvation but a reward for labor on Christ's behalf. The Rapture will also inaugurate a period that the Bible characterizes as the "great day of His wrath," "the great tribulation" and the "time of Jacob's trouble. This time of unprecedented difficulty will affect Israel and all nations. Its main purpose will be to prepare Israel for her Messiah.

At the end of the Tribulation, Jesus will return with the hosts of heaven together with the Church to establish the Messianic Kingdom on earth. His Kingdom will reign for a thousand years.

 At this Second Coming, the Antichrist will be cast into the Lake of Fire and Satan will be bound for a thousand years. The nations and their representatives will be judged. Israel will be restored to her land, never more to be removed. Christ will reign with firmness and equity.

 His kingdom will be marked by material and spiritual blessing, since the curse upon the earth will be removed.

The Messianic kingdom will close with apostasy and rebellion. God will crush this uprising in the last battle of the ages and Satan will be thrown into the lake of fire.

 All who rejected the Word of God will be resurrected. They will be judged by Christ and cast into the lake of fire, the place where they will suffer final and everlasting punishment.

At the end of this judgment there will be a new heaven and a new earth, where righteousness is the norm. There will be a new Jerusalem and the everlasting presence of God among all the redeemed.
