Jesus is Coming ... Again!

He came the first time to die; He is coming again to raise the dead.

When He came the first time, they questioned whether He was King; the next time the world will know that He is King of kings and Lord of lords.

The first time He wore a crown of thorns; the next time He will be wearing a crown of glory.

The first time He came in poverty; the next time He is coming in power.

The first time He had an escort of angels; the next time He will come with ten thousands of His saints.

The first time He came in meekness; He is coming again in majesty.

[Adrian Rogers]

John 14:2-3 ... 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. 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.

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 ... 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.

Revelation 22:12-13 ... And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. ♥
