HOUSE FELLOWSHIP TEACHING OUTLINE (27/09/2017)

TOPIC: JESUS IS COMING AGAIN

 

RECAP

In the past 11 weeks we treated a topic that is very vital in teaching us to order our walk with Christ while on earth and more importantly to ensure that we have our place with Him in eternity. We started by saying that His coming will be unexpected; it will be at a time when the world is absorbed in its usual occupations. That day will take many by surprise. It will be a grievous time for all who rejected Jesus Christ.

 

To be on His side, we are admonished to live everyday honouring God in our hearts and being willing and ready to share Him to the perishing world. The world is sinking deeper into sin and it will be a shame if we have the opportunity and fail to utilize it to show someone the way of salvation.

 

We also mentioned that rapture will occur before the second coming of Christ. The Rapture will take place at the time when Jesus comes back for His church – believers who abide till the end. It will be unannounced and selective. On the other hand, Christ second coming will be a glorious event that the whole world will witness. This is the period when Jesus Christ will return to defeat the antichrist, establish His divine government and have His Millennium reign over the earth. None of us should miss rapture.

 

Those who rapture will escape the Great Tribulation i.e. a period of God’s wrath. The antichrist will not be the only source of suffering at this time, the days will be marked by great calamities that will come as a result of God’s judgement and wrath. The antichrist will be merciless and compel the world to worship him in place of God.

 

Finally, the antichrist will be defeated by Christ and bound with chains and fetters in a bottomless pit. No one among us should be among those who will witness the government of the antichrist. Let us also take one message to the world, which is: repent for the second coming of Christ is nearer now than ever before.
