EVENTS AFTER 7 YEARS STAY IN HEAVEN

Eschatological Series No 8.

The rapture and the Second Advent of Christ are two different and distinct events. At the rapture He comes as the bridegroom to take unto Himself a pure and Holy bride (Eph 5:27; Jn 14:1-3). At the Second Advent He comes back with the bride to rule the Nations and to set up His millennial kingdom. (Jude 14-15, Rev 4:7)

At the rapture He comes to meet believers in the clouds, (1 Thess 4:17). At the second advent He comes to the earth in his majesty and His feet shall stand on the mount of Olives, Zech 14:4-5
At first coming, Jesus came for Redemption of humanity
(1 Tim 2:5-6; Titus 2:14). At second coming, He is coming to rapture the. He shall come as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. (Rev 19:16)
redeemed ones (Heb 9:28). He will be in the air welcoming all Christians. Then at the last advent, He is coming as KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS AND AS A “LION OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH,” (Rev 5:5) to rule and to reign and to execute judgement upon unbelieving Nations and sinner’s.

1. THE BATTLE OF ARMEGEDDON Rev 16:13-16; 19:11-21; Zech 14:1-9; 2 Thess 2:8; Isa 63:1-6.

2. FALSE THEORY OF ARMAGEDDON: Some sects were going about deceiving and terrifying people about war of Armageddon: The war of Armageddon is not a war between Nations versus nations or civil war or human being versus human being. This war is Christ versus antichrist and his wicked soldiers and wicked nations which antichrist conquered and he now mobilized them to war against Christ not to take his earthly possessions and reign as King of Kings.

3. THE WORD ARMEGEDDON Rev 16:16, Armageddon, ( the name itself is to be found only in (Rev 16:16) is the ancient hill and valley of Megiddo, West of Jordan in the plain of Jezreel between Samaria and Galilee, and is often referred to in the O.T as the Military stronghold Joshua 12:27; 17:11; Judges 5:19; 2Kings 9:27. This war would be very hot and terrible at this place in Israel.

4. GREAT SLAUGHTER
Ps 2:1-5,9; 2 Thess 2:8; Rev 19:17-19;21 Ezek 39:17-20. The slaughter would be very great to extent that, the fowls and the birds of the air were commanded to eat human being. Rev 14:19-20; Rev 17:14. The sinners that oppose Christ will be destroyed by his mighty power Isa 13:9, 24:20-22; 29:5-7.
