It is important to believe and understand that every word in the Bible is true. Christ will truly come back in His glorified body.
Christ will sit on David’s real throne and reign over a real earth for 1,000 real years.
Many signs will show us that Christ is about to return in power and glory.it is important that we know what these signs are.
We know that If we can see some of these signs already , the Rapture must be close.
Apostasy and false teachers who have turned away from the truth will come in the last days before Christ return.
For example, there are now many false churches operating in The world . All these churches corrupt the truth from the Bible.
60% of people don’t believe in the Virgin Birth of Christ. 65% do not believe in life after death and yet another, 80% do not believe in Christ’s literal return to earth. People everywhere are turning away from the truth.
Dear countrymen, the end is near of this world. There are many signs pointing to the end of this world, in the Bible we are told
People will have more knowledge and will travel more than ever before ( Daniel 12:4) every day people are traveling in and out of Zambia .
Human beings often feel a strange ambiguity, a mixture of fascination and fear, when talking about the future. They want to know and at the same time they are also afraid. There are three ways to find out about the future:
Firstly we have Superstitious Clairvoyance/Divination Exampleslike horoscopes, tarot cards, fortune telling, etc. These predictions are never more than 5% right, which makes them 95% wrong. Some newspapers And Magazines here in Zambia,likes promoting horoscopes and cheat people by putting birth days and months of one’s birthday ,yet the bible says “And I Will cut off Witchcrafts out of thine hand; and thou shalt have no more soothsayers,’’ (Micah 5:12)
Secondly ,we have what I can call, Scientific Deduction. Thedepartment of Futurology at the University of Massachusetts isone of the leaders in this area. Energy, food and water resources together with the present population growth on the planet have indicated, for example, that the end of the world should be around 2050. Gilford University also says 2050. Their predictions have a 25% accuracy rate, which means they are 75% wrong.
Scriptural Declaration .The Bible is packed with predictions about the future. Scholars say that some 735 different events are foretold in the Word and 596 of these have come true to the letter. This gives us a percentage of 80%, BUT the remaining ones all deal with prophecies about the second coming of Christ and the end of the age, which gives it a 100% accuracy rate. One event has been predicted 318 times in the Bible, which is that Jesus Christ is coming back a second time. It is also the most predicted event in the Bible and absolutely certain to happe
WHERE ON EARTH IS JESUS COMING BACK TO? Is it at Manda hill or Arcades? The answer is non of these places butJerusalem – the city of the great King. Remember he will come back in bodily form and thus will be localized. There is such a remarkable contrast between His first and second coming that is worthwhile comparing the two.In His first coming, hardly anybody knew about it – the whole event happened virtually unnoticed, except for a few shepherds and astrologers who were heralded. During His second coming, the entire sky will light up and everybodywill know.Three important words are used when referring to His second coming: Parousia means an important arrival, and is be used for a royal person or an invading army like on a Day. In other words, it announces an arrival of tremendous significance. Epiphaneia means to appear, to come out where everybody can see you, like when royalty appears on the balcony of a palace. Apokalupsis means to be uncovered, not naked, but as you really are. We will see Him as the Son of God in all His glory, not as when He walked the earth the first time when they saw no beauty that they would desire Him. Interestingly, there is no contrast between His first going (the ascension) and His second coming. Acts 1:11
WHEN IS JESUS COMING BACK ZAMBIA? Zambian Christians must stop putting their faith in these false teachers, whose job is to divide families and not uniting them . To promote the works of the antichrist ,hence drawing many Zambians into a wrong path. I Advice you Church ! study the word of God so no one tells you their fake imaginations from the pity of hell. The Bible warns in 2 Timothy 4:2-4
‘’ Preach the word; be instant in seasons, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine. For the TIME will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables”
Now church, let us look at this closely, David Pawson says: There have been many predictions. Miller predicted 1843 – the 7th day Adventist Movement was born. The Seventh day Adventist founder predicted that Jesus was going to come in 1843 and many people believed this man and one wonders where he got that revelation from, but did Jesus come in 1843? Did the world end?
Russell predicted 1914 – the Jehovah’s Witness Movement was born. I wonder where Russell got all these lies and deceivinginnocent people with his false doctrine of the Coming of Jesus. If his doctrine was true his prediction would have come to pass! The Bible says that if you have a prophet among you he shall say something and it shall come to pass, but if what he says does not happen, know that I did not SEND him, but himself generates this from his mind. ‘’You cannot be a solution to a problem if you yourself are a problem’’. Martin Luther predicted 1636 and John Wesley predicted 1874.
These days, many people talk about us being the last generation, but keep in mind that not even Jesus knows the date. Only the Father keeps that date. Be very cautious of anybody telling you that he knows the date, WAKE UP ZAMBIA! STUDY THE BIBLE.
He gave them the signs or signals and told them to watch and pray. These signals can be divided into 4 groups, and all other passages can be fitted into these four main groups that Jesus mentioned. Matt. 24
The World .He mentions three kinds of disasters: earthquakes, wars and famines. But also warns us not to trouble our hearts when we hear these things. These are but the birth pangs, not the death pangs. They are signs of the Beginning and not the end. In this spiritual vacuum, many false Christ’s will appear.
The Church.Again there are three features:There will come a time of universal persecution where the church will be hated by every nation and where there will be great pressure on the church. Matt. 24:9 The second warning is that the love of many will grow cold and the nominal churchgoer or Sunday Christian will disappear. Matt. 24:12.Thirdly, once the church is cleaned, it will be much better equipped to preach the gospel to all the nations. Matt. 24:14.Again there will be the danger of false prophets within the church, especially the ones who say, peace,peace.
The Middle East. Jesus quoted from Daniel and speaks about the abomination of desolation. The horror of this phrase is something so abhorrent that it is difficult to translate it into English.
It was already fulfilled when a Greek Emperor, Antiochus Ephinanus, went into the temple and sacrificed a pig on the altar. II Thess 2:4 speaks about a man of lawlessness, and we are told to flee from this man if we are in Jerusalem, but to stay put in the rest of the world. Trust your eyes, and do not listen to rumours. Keep watching for me, He said.
The Sky.The sun, moon and stars will be switched off. There will be no natural light whatsoever. It will be like getting the stage ready so that all people will be able to see the glory andsplendour of the risen Christ. Matt 24:29
The Bible makes it clear that no one knows the exact moment of the return of Christ. The Bible does suggest, however, that the last generation of the church will sense that the time of his return is very near. The longest statement by Christ about his return is found in Matthew 24: 1 – 25: 46. During this discussion Jesus said, ‘Even so, when you see all these things, you know that he is near, right at the door. I tell you the truth, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened’ (Matt 24: 33 – 34). However, Jesus went on to say, ‘No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven nor the Son, but only the Father… Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come’ (Matt 24: 36, 42).
In his letter to the Thessalonians, Paul also said something about this certainty and uncertainty concerning the time of the Lord’s return. Paul said, ‘Now brothers, about times and dates, we do not need to write to you, for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief.
The emphasis on the Second Coming of Christ in the New Testament is very practical. Without exception, the emphasis is always on present holy living and faithful service for Christ. In Jesus’ long discussion in Matt 24-25 about His return and the events that will accompany His return, he told four stories.
The interesting thing is that these four stories teach only two simple lessons, each lesson twice. The lessons are to be ready and to be faithful..
