The First Time vs. The Second TimeJuly 10, 2017 Save Article
Jesus is coming again. The first time He came as a Lamb; He is coming again as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. The first time He came to redeem; He is coming again to reign.
He came the first time to die; He is coming again to raise the dead. When He came the first time, they questioned whether He was King; next time the world will know He is King of kings and Lord of lords.
The first time He wore a crown of thorns; the next time He will wear a crown of glory. The first time He came in poverty; the next time He is coming in power.
The first time He had an escort of angels; the next time He will come with ten thousands of His saints. The first time He came in meekness; He is coming again in majesty.
Peter said, “Repent, therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and that He may send Jesus Christ, who was preached to you before, whom heaven must receive until the times of restoration of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began.” (Acts 3:19-21).
Jesus is alive and well. “He who testifies to these things says, ‘Surely I am coming quickly.’ Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!” (Revelation 22:20).
