Truth about Second Coming and Judgment day


If there is one thing that almost all religions today have in common, it is their belief that when the Lord Jesus Christ returns, it is going to be His second coming, and that day would already be judgment day. I am sorry, but I strongly disagree to that!

First of all, there is no such phrase as “second coming” in the Bible. The belief in the “second coming” was a result of Lamsa’s reckless and erroneous translation of the Bible. Actually, of the numerous translations of the Bible available today, only Lamsa’s used the term “second coming” — all the other translations did not. Unfortunately, Lamsa was able to influence and mislead many religions, that is why many people today think that Christ’s would-be return on earth will be His second coming.

While it is true that the Lord Jesus Christ will come yet again, it is not going to be His second coming — and neither is it going to already be judgment day. Christ shall come again. And when He returns, He will resurrect, not all of the dead, but only those who are of Him — those who have died fulfilling His teachings. This is called the first resurrection; however, it is not yet the day of the final judgment because a thousand-year reign of Christ on earth still remains.

REVELATION 20:6 (KJV) says,

Blessed and holy is he that has part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

The first resurrection of the dead will happen when Christ returns. Those who will be part of the first resurrection shall be made priests of God and of Christ and they shall reign with Him on earth for a thousand years.

1 CORINTHIANS 15:24-25 (KJV) says,

24 Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.
25 For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.

During the one-thousand-year period, Christ shall put down all rule, all authority, and all power; He shall vanquish all evils.

After the one-thousand-year period comes the final judgment. Christ shall judge.

As written in 2 CORINTHIANS 5:10 (KJV),

For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.

We have to prepare for His coming. To be among those who will be considered blessed, it is very important that when the Lord comes, He finds us doing His will.

MATTHEW 24:46 (KJV) says,

Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.

Before the Lord Jesus Christ ascended to heaven, He left the apostles with a specific instruction of teaching all nations His commandments.

MATTHEW 28:20 (KJV) says,

Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Christ wants us to observe all of His commandments. When He finds us fulfilling His teachings and commandments during His return, we will be considered blessed because we will receive a reward that He prepared for those who abided by His words.

As written in REVELATION 22:12 (KJV),

And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.

Yes, Christ will come again. But let me reiterate, it is not going to be His second coming because He had already come to earth more than twice. For instance, during the time that the Israelites were in the wilderness, He was following them and He had shown Himself to them in the form of a rock.

1 CORINTHIANS 10:3-4 (KJV) says,

3 And did all eat the same spiritual meat;
4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.

The Lord Jesus Christ was the Rock that followed the Israelites, the Rock that provided them water to drink while they were in the wilderness. Meaning, before He manifested Himself in the flesh, He had already come to earth (in the form of a rock).

Another instance of His coming here was when Mary gave birth to Him, when He assumed human form, to redeem us from our sins.

And when He comes again, it will not just be His second coming.

Actually, in addition to the instances that I have cited, Christ had already been descending to earth and ascending back to heaven even before.

PROVERBS 30:4 (KJV) says,

Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? who hath gathered the wind in his fists? who hath bound the waters in a garment? who hath established all the ends of the earth? what is his name, and what is his son’s name, if thou canst tell?

As we all know, all things were created by God and His Son. And during the creation, Christ had been descending to earth and ascending to heaven. Therefore, it is an impertinence to say that when Christ comes again, it will only be His second coming.

The Lord Jesus Christ shall come again. There is no doubt about that. But as to whether it is going to be His third, or fourth, or fifth “coming,” we do not exactly know. But one thing is for sure, it is not going to be His second coming, and it is not going to be the final judgment day yet.
