Study of Great Bible Truths – Vol. 2 Lesson 32

Lesson 32:   The Second Coming


1. The greatest incentive to holy living is the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. Our concern about the Lord’s second coming should be in terms of our relationship to Him. We should strive to be holy and to be ready for that great day.


2. Signs of the second coming of Christ are found in Mark 13 and Luke 21. The signs include:
a. False claims to be the Christ leading many astray
b. Nations against nations, kingdoms against kingdoms
c. Wars, rumors of wars
d. Famines and earthquakes
e. Falling away, betrayal, hating one another
f. False prophets will arise
g. Lawlessness will increase
h. Proclamation of the gospel throughout the whole world
i. Great tribulations as never before


3. Scriptures related to Christ’s second coming: Acts 1:7-11; Acts 3:19-21; Acts 17:31; 2nd Peter 3:1-18


4. We overlook the Doctrine of the Second Coming of Christ because of spiritual lethargy. We tend to become victims of life and circumstances. That is why we are told to remind ourselves of these things to stir ourselves up.


5. What is the manner of the 2nd Coming?
a. It will be a personal coming
b. It will be a physical as well as a physical coming. John 14: 18-19; Matthew 26:64; Acts 1:10-11; Hebrews 9:28; Revelation 4:7
c. Christ’s return will be visible.
d. Christ’s return will be sudden. That is why we as Christians must always be looking for Him and expecting Him. Matthew 24:27, 21:43;       1 Thessalonians 5:2; Matthew 24:44
e. His second coming will be a glorious appearing. Christ will come as the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. Titus 2:13
