March 2, 2014 HOW IS HE COMING? (PART 1)

Matthew 25:31-33 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him... and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Few doctrines of the Bible receive more attention among today than the second coming of Christ. Last week, we observed Jesus' predictions regarding the destruction of Jerusalem and His second coming. We devoted our attention to the mind-frame of His coming, and not the timeframe. Since His return is a foundational doctrine of the Christian faith, it well deserves our notice. It exalts the consummate glory of His redemptive victory, completes

the sovereign plan of God for history. According to Scripture His second coming is just

that, a second time” (Heb. 9:28). The angels certainly do not mention two future comings (Acts 1:11). The Bible never speaks of a “third coming.

In today's message, Jesus concluded the Olivet Discourse with further revelation about the judgment that will take place at the end. He had referred to it often in the discourse, but now He made it a special subject of explanation. This judgment will occur when the King from "the goats" in their flocks, for various reasons, at various times (cf. Ezek. 34:17). Also, sheep and goats in the Middle East look more alike than they do in some other parts of the world. The "right" often signified the place of favor, and "the left" the place of comparative disfavor, in biblical and Jewish literature.

This explanation details the necessity for His coming. The Redeemer's return in glory is necessary to complete His redemptive victory, for then He returns as an all-conquering Redeemer-king. Though Christ legally secured the defeat of sin, death, and the devil in the first century, all three evils remain with us (Rom. 7:18–25; 1 Peter 5:8–9). They have been vanquished historically through the continuing progress of the Gospel (Acts 26:18; 1 Cor. 15:20–23). They will be vanquished eternally at the second coming of Christ (Rom. 8:18–25; Rev. 20:10–15). Why should you serve, worship and trust Him? Because He is coming again. Faithful over a few, Bro. Leslie B. James
