Sermon: Are You Ready To Overcome Unto The End

Jesus (with all His Apostles) maintained clearly in all Scripture that He will only come once more to take His Church to Himself when we have endured UNTO THE END.
Don’t let anyone cleverly revise it to mean escape or chicken out BEFORE THE END.
Be dogged and ready to overcome UNTO THE END .

Revelation 2:25-27
25 But that which you have already hold fast TILL I COME .
26 And HE THAT OVERCOMES , and keeps my works UNTO THE e END, to him will I give power over the nations:
27 And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to pieces: even as I received of my Father.
==========================

*CHRIST’S SECOND COMING*

When Christ Comes Again with His Holy Angels to gather His Elect Saints and destroy the Antichrist, He would descend from the third heaven, shake the space constellations in the second heaven and come down to appear in the atmospheric sky of the first heaven. Then:
1. The LAST TRUMPET shall sound – by the Archangel.
2. The dead in Christ (Church Triumphant) shall first be RESURRECTED to immortality.
3. The living in Christ (Church Militant) shall then be CHANGED to immortality.
4. The raised Triumphant Saints and changed Militant Saints shall together be RAPTURED and gathered to MEET and welcome the coming Lord in the atmospheric air.
5. These raptured immortal Saints shall forever be with the Lord to REIGN with Him in the Millennium and REST with Him in the Eternity.

*When would this Second Coming of Christ, the last Trumpet, Resurrection, Rapture, etc be?*

1. *Christ said it WILL BE AT THE END OF THE GREAT TRIBULATION* (Matt 24:29-31).
2. *The Apostles wrote it WOULD NOT BE TILL AFTER THE ANTICHRIST BEAST REIGN AND THE TRIBULATION* (1Cor 15:20-26; 2Thes 2:1-4; Rev 20:4-6).
3. *Some Christians in recent times think that it SHOULD BEGIN BEFORE THE ANTICHRIST AND THE TRIBULATION* (due to some recent Dispensationalist Escapist considerations and Jewish separatist speculations).

*Here is what the Scriptures plainly say…*
Matthew 24:29-31
(29) “IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE TRIBULATION OF THOSE DAYS the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.
(30) Then will appear in heaven the sign of the Son of Man, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
(31) AND HE WILL SEND OUT HIS ANGELS WITH A LOUD TRUMPET CALL, AND THEY WILL GATHER HIS ELECT FROM THE FOUR WINDS, FROM ONE END OF HEAVEN TO THE OTHER.

1 Corinthians 15:20-26
(20) But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.
(21) For as by a man came death, by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead.
(22) For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive.
(23) BUT EACH IN HIS OWN ORDER: CHRIST THE FIRSTFRUITS, THEN AT HIS COMING THOSE WHO BELONG TO CHRIST.
(24) Then comes the end, when he delivers the kingdom to God the Father after destroying every rule and every authority and power.
(25) For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet.
(26) The last enemy to be destroyed is death.

2 Thessalonians 2:1-4
(1) NOW CONCERNING THE COMING OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST AND OUR BEING GATHERED TOGETHER TO HIM, WE ASK YOU, BROTHERS,
(2) not to be quickly shaken in mind or alarmed, either by a spirit or a spoken word, or a letter seeming to be from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come.
(3) LET NO ONE DECEIVE YOU IN ANY WAY. FOR THAT DAY WILL NOT COME, UNLESS THE REBELLION COMES FIRST, AND THE MAN OF LAWLESSNESS IS REVEALED, THE SON OF DESTRUCTION,
(4) who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God.

Revelation 20:4-6
(4) Then I saw thrones, and seated on them were those to whom the authority to judge was committed. Also I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus and for the word of God, and those who had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. THEY CAME TO LIFE AND REIGNED WITH CHRIST FOR A THOUSAND YEARS.
(5) THE REST OF THE DEAD DID NOT COME TO LIFE UNTIL THE THOUSAND YEARS WERE ENDED. THIS IS THE FIRST RESURRECTION.
(6) BLESSED AND HOLY IS THE ONE WHO SHARES IN THE FIRST RESURRECTION! Over such the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ, and they will reign with him for a thousand years.
