Whereby We May Know Him During His Second Coming
by A. Freeman, guest writer
There seems to be a huge disconnect between popular beliefs concerning Christ’s Second Coming and what the Scriptures actually say about it. That has led to a lot of unnecessary confusion, thanks to the churches and their leaders being the false christs (and religious teachers) and false prophets (Matt. 24:5, 11), i.e. “the blind leading the blind,” which Christ Himself warned us NOT to follow (Matt. 15:14).
Before anything in the Bible can be correctly understood, it is vitally important to ask for God’s help in understanding what’s being read, from a spiritual point-of-view (John 3:3-13). We are in fact spirit-beings (the soul/spirit is the REAL you) that are temporarily incarcerated inside these human-animal bodies, for a very good reason (Rev. 12:7-9, Gen. 1:26). Without that CERTAIN knowledge it is IMPOSSIBLE to recognize the Scriptural Marks of Christ during His Second Coming.
Christ is a SPIRIT-BEING, just like God Himself, and thus is NOT human. Jesus was the human-body that the Virgin Mary gave birth to in Bethlehem, 2000 years ago, which was descended from the line of King David and the tribes of JUDAH and Levi. Jesus-Christ was the human+Being resulting from Christ incarnating inside Jesus. It should therefore be obvious that the human (Son of Man) known as Jesus was born and died on this planet (Matt. 2:1, Matt. 27:50). And it should be equally obvious that the immortal Spirit-Being known as Christ was around BEFORE THE WORLD WAS (John 17:5) and consequently is NOT FROM THIS WORLD, precisely as He said (John 17:16, 18:36).
It is the second coming of Christ, NOT Jesus, that is prophesied in Scripture, and described in great detail.
Counting the Marks
Christ will NOT be in the body of Jesus this time, but instead will be in a new body with a NEW NAME.
Revelation 2:17, 3:12, 19:12
2:17 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a NEW name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth [it].
3:12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the Temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, [which is] New Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and [I will write upon him] my NEW name.
19:12 His eyes [were] as a flame of fire, and on his head [were] many crowns; and he had a NAME written, that NO man knew, but HE himself (ch. 2:17; 3:12).
