Jesus Is Coming Back

What a Saviour!
 AND 1mo •

What a Saviour we have in the Lord Jesus Christ...He is Lord of Lords and King of Kings. There is nothing that has more power than he does.
I read where the Bible tells me that God has made all things for himself ye even the wicked for the day of evil. All power is given unto me both in heaven and in Earth.
Believe in Jesus

We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ this morning. We know that he has everything in control. Nothing is stronger than God. If God be for you who can be against you, right? Amen. We are so blessed to be a part of such a great house, aren't we? It is always an honor to be in God's house, and God knows we have a need for him.

Putting in Remembrance
I was thinking about Apostle Peter how he had told them he would stir them up by putting them in remembrance of these things. The gospel of God today was preached before unto Abraham that he would be heir of the world. When Jesus Christ came, he preached repentance. There is a time in our life when we have to get away from things that are unlike God. We have to turn away...there is a day coming.

Love of God's People 
We love people. We love God's people. We love those that are in sin and want them to give their heart and their life to Jesus Christ. Do you want to make heaven your home? That is why we go to church.

In 1 Thessalonians 5:1, BUT of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. 2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.

The Day of the Lord
I thought about why Paul would write that letter when they knew perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. Then I thought about what Peter said...he said he would stir you up by putting you in remembrance of these things though you know them and may be established in the present truth.

Jesus is Coming Back
This morning we know that the day of the Lord is coming. Jesus Christ said when he went away that he would come again. John 14:1 LET not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

Shall So Come in Like Manner
I can't help in my mind but think about when I was a child growing up hearing the verse in Acts, Chapter 1...when the angel told him, "Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner".

Is Jesus Coming Soon?
He is coming back Church the same way he went away. A cloud received him out of their sight. The Bible said he would come back with 10,000 of his Saints. He is coming back to take vengeance upon all them that know not God and obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

The Believer's Conditional Security

The Holy Bible.

The Believer's Conditional Security

Eternal Security

The question of ETERNAL SECURITY has not always been an issue.  From the time of Christ until the Reformation in the 16th Century, it had never been considered a possibility that a Christian could not lose his salvation.

Any diligent study of this subject must include some content on John Wycliffe. The Morningstar of the Reformation: One Pope issued five bulls against John Wycliffe for heresy, the Catholic Church in England tried him three times, and two Popes summoned him to Rome, but Wycliffe was never imprisoned nor ever went to Rome.

The Wycliffe English translation of the Bible was made from a Latin language, hand-written manuscript of a translation a thousand years old and before any verse numbers had been assigned.  

Where did once saved always saved come from?

Even though John Wycliffe died peacefully at home in bed on New Year's Eve, 1384, the Roman Catholic Church exhumed his body 44 years later, burned his bones, and scattered the ashes in a nearby river.  John Wycliffe never suggested that a Christian could not be lost.
As the Reformation spread across Europe, in 1536 John Calvin formulated his famous, "Institutes on Christian Religion" which remains the foundation for "reformed" theology.  This is the genesis of the concept of "Once Saved, Always Saved".

As with every doctrine of our church, we take the Bible, God's written revelation to man, as our only source and guide.  Our teaching must be determined by the Bible.

Based on that principle, let's see what God says about our salvation;

Revelation 3:5 He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.

Revelation 3:11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

Philippians 2:12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.

John 15:6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. 
2 Peter 1:10 Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:

Luke 8:13 They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation fall away.

1 Corinthians 10:12 Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall. 

Romans 6:1-3
1  WHAT shall we say then?  Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?
2  God forbid.  How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?
3  Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?

Fall From Grace Meaning 

1.   "Fall from grace" - Galatians 5:1-4, 13
2.   "Be led away with error" - 2 Peter 3:17
3.   "Err from the truth" - James 5:19-20
4.   "Weak brother may perish" - 1 Corinthians 8:11
5.   "Fall into condemnation" - James 5:12
6.   "Be moved away from the hope" - Colossians 1:21-23
7.   "Deny the Lord who bought them" - 2 Peter 2:1
8.   "Depart from the living God" - Hebrews 3:12
9.   "Can be a castaway" - 1 Corinthians 9:27
10.  "Can become accursed children" - 2 Peter 2:14

Consider these truths;

  • If God has already elected those who are going to heaven, then why evangelize, seek to be saved, or even follow God's path?
  • If God predestined everything, then there is no use in praying for your friends or family.

  • If God predestined everything, then God created sin.

  • If man is totally incapable of good, then man cannot truly be remorseful or repentant.

  • If man is totally incapable of good, then man cannot be faulted for his sins.

  • Christ died for everyone, not just the elect.

  • "Once-saved-always-saved" is a lie from the darkest pit of Hell!

  • Some OSAS (Once Saved Always Saved) proponents who believe in Free Will believe one cannot be lost.  This would imply that one had free will before conversion, and lost free will after conversion.

  • OSAS proponents will say, "Well, if he backslides, he was never truly saved".

1 Corinthians 9:27

27  But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway

The Return of Christ

Clouds in the Sky
Great Doctrines of the Church 

Before, At Christ's Return & After Christ's Return


Acts 1:9-11
9 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.
10 And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel;
11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven?  this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
16 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:
17 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.


1 Corinthians 15:51-53
51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.  

Matthew 24:36-42
36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
37 But as the days of No'-e were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that No'-e entered into the ark,
39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

Revelation 1:7
7 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.  Even so, A-men'.

Psalm 37:9, 11, 22
9 For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth.
11 But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
22 For such as be blessed of him shall inherit the earth; and they that be cursed of him shall be cut off.

John 5:28-29
28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,
29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.

1 Corinthians 15:23-26, 51 & 52
23 But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming.
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.
26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.

1 JOHN 3:2

2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

A Black Bible


1.  Not Jesus Himself, nor any of the apostles, the early church fathers, and not one of       the reformers ever spoke or wrote a single word about a rapture.
2.  The teaching of a rapture or a millennial reign was unheard of until the mid-19th           Century.
3.  There isn't a single verse that speaks of Christ leaving the earth when he returns.
4.  The general resurrection will raise every human who has ever lived.
5.  The resurrection of the just and the unjust will occur at the same time.

The Ransom

John's writings in the Bible



The Ransom...Jesus gave his life. In Matthew 20:28 Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many. Jesus gave his life: they didn't kill him. He gave his life. I am reminded of that during the Easter season when we have an Easter drama here at the church. And as the soldier took the spear to pierce Jesus' side, I thought about the blood and the water that came forth out of his side there that day.


That blood and that water has washed away the sins out of our life. You see, sin reigns in our mortal body. The only way to get free from that is through Jesus. Whom the Son hath made free, he is free indeed. So, if you want to be free, you have to accept Jesus Christ.


Now people that have been raised to know the Lord and have been taken to a Christian Church all their life may not think a whole lot about it. But not everybody feels the same way that a Christian does about Jesus Christ. Some people will tell you he was a prophet but they don't believe that he was anything else. Some don't really believe that he was the Son of God on earth.


When Jesus Christ was hanging on the cross I'm reminded of the Centurion as the day got dark there, and Jesus gave up the ghost. He said, "Truly this was the Son of God." Well not just because that Centurion said it but Jesus said, "If I be lifted up from the earth I will draw all men unto me." That is when he was lifted up on that cross. It give us this hope because once he died and he resurrected, we have a hope of eternal life. So it is through his shed blood that we have the remission of sins.

In Romans 5:12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:.

Let me stop right there for just a second to explain what this ransom did.


You see our natural life that we live in, it is going to come to an end. The Bible said in Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:.

The natural life is not really what he is speaking about here. The spiritual life is what we get from Jesus Christ with the ransom. The natural life and the death that passed upon all men, for all have sinned: death came by sin. When Adam transgressed the laws of God, we were all sold under sin. Romans 5:13 (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law. 14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.

This death came upon the world. Our natural life is going to go away. Jesus didn't bring his natural life when he came. The ransom that he paid was for this death. Had he not had a reason to give his life, it would have been death without a cause. He took away the imputed part. We are not accounted for our sins when we come to Jesus Christ.


Romans 4:1 WHAT shall we say then that Abraham our father, as pertaining to the flesh, hath found? 2 For if Abraham were justified by works, he hath whereof to glory; but not before God. 3 For what saith the scripture? ABRAHAM BELIEVED GOD, AND IT WAS COUNTED UNTO HIM FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS. 4 Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. 5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. 6 Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works, 7 Saying, BLESSED ARE THEY WHOSE INIQUITIES ARE FORGIVEN, AND WHOSE SINS ARE COVERED. 8. BLESSED IS THE MAN TO WHOM THE LORD WILL NOT IMPUTE SIN.

The only way that we can do that is through the blood of Jesus Christ. The only way that our sins cannot be imputed where we don't have to give an account for our sins is through the blood of Jesus. Now, do we continue in sin that grace may abound? No, God forbid. We don't continue in sin just because the grace of God is there.
