The first thing we have to do is identify the Second Coming in the Scriptures.

Then we’ll see where it is placed in the order of end times events.

When you just read the Word and believe it you'll see that this is pretty simple.

Revelation 19:11-16

"And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He who sat on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and wages war. [12] His eyes are a flame of fire, and on His head are many diadems; and He has a name written on Him which no one knows except Himself. [13] He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. [There should be no doubt as to Who this is.] [14] And the armies which are in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, were following Him on white horses. [We (all Christians) are part of the armies of heaven] [15] From His mouth comes a sharp sword, so that with it He may strike down the nations, and He will rule them with a rod of iron; and He treads the wine press of the fierce wrath of God, the Almighty. [16] And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, "KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS." [Can be anyone else?...NO!]

What is this describing?...the Parousia or Second coming!

Now, let’s think of the context again and assess when this occurs.

Who is coming with Christ on white horses in verse 14?...the armies of heaven.

Who makes up the armies of heaven?

I Thessalonians 3:13

so that He may establish your hearts without blame in holiness before our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus with all His saints.”

This says that Christ is coming with all His saints.  Who are His saints?... all Christians.  These are not angels, but all Christians.  Angels may be a part of the armies of heaven, but so are the saints.

So, if all His saints are with Christ as He comes to the earth (according to I Thessalonians 3:13 and Revelation 19) then this must be after all the saints have been gathered together to Him at the Rapture.

As discussed under Post-Tribulation Rapture Notes most of the second half of the book of Revelation is in chronological order:

  • 13—Tribulation
  • 14—Rapture - Post-Tribulation (after the Tribulation)
  • 15&16—wrath
  • 17&18—were an interlude describing the fall of Babylon in the beginning of 14
  • 19—Second Coming with the saints
  • 20—Millennium
  • 21&22—new heaven and new earth


Conclusion

  1. We the saints are raptured to Christ in mid-heaven
  2. Then the Bowls of Wrath are poured out on the earth (as you see in There is a Difference Between Tribulation and Wrath we do escape the wrath of God as His Word promises!)
  3. Then we return with Christ at His Second Coming
  4. This is followed by the our Millennial reign with our King of kings and Lord of lords
  5. And finally, our eternal state begins in the new heaven and new earth

Hallelujah!  I don't understand everything about His plan and why it is the way it is, but I do understand the chronology that He has clearly laid out before us in the Bible.  We are to know and discern what He has made clear in His Word.

Overwhelmed by all the theories about the End Times?  Whose end times prophecy is right?

Are the books of Daniel and Revelation confusing to you?

Having trouble keeping up with all the current world news that might pertain to the Last Days?
