The Second Coming of Christ


The second coming of Christ is the revealing of his glory and His purpose. We are to seek the glory from Christ, not the glory found in one another. Human greatness or self- exulting is nothing in the second coming. We are to treasure the glory of God above all things. When Jesus walked the earth, it didn’t measure up with man’s interpretation of Gods appearing, so they hung Him on the cross. We were granted all the glory at that very moment. To long for His appearing is to embrace His glory, which is our source of hope.

Christ experienced suffering during His first appearance, but His second coming will be characterized by glory. Through your suffering, his glory is revealed. Suffering is a prerequisite for experiencing the glory of Christ. Christ guided us to the way, and this is the way. Christ's gift was full of glory.


And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: I in them, and You in Me: that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and I have loved them as You loved Me. Father, I desire that they also whom You gave Me may be with Me where I am, that they may behold My glory which You have given Me: for You loved Me before the foundation of the world (John 17:22-24).

 

I am of the belief that the glory Christ speaks of resides in us already. It’s Christ’s desire that we be where He is! It's our duty to reach that point of glorification. The second coming of Christ lives in us already, the kingdom is within! This will be the moment when Christ touches us in an unprecedented manner. Scripture speaks of marvelling at the coming of Christ. Our relationship with the Lord should be like this marvel. The marvel we're talking about is internal, coming from the heart. Just imagine the awe of feeling His glory touch us both externally and internally simultaneously. His people mirror His glory with the wonder and admiration we hold in our hearts for Him. Love the Lord God with all your heart, soul and strength (Deuteronomy 6:5). Serve Him wholeheartedly. Have trust in Him, seek Him and return to Him. Christ is not returning to receive an average marveling. Our perceptions will swiftly shift when we encounter Him in the fullness of His glory. Allowing us to truly feel as we should. The path to glory requires overcoming personal struggles.


Defective glory is when people seek glory from each other or strive to gain the whole world. Satan tempted Jesus with the offer of ruling over all the kingdoms of the world, but Jesus declined. Jesus pursued genuine glory! Overcoming oneself is the path to true glory and glorification by the Son of God.
