Christ Coming

The Coming of Christ stirs up much controversy and has sign seekers theorizing and date setting for years and in each case be wrong.

So we have to ask ourselves, what does Christs coming mean, and what does His coming really look like so we know more clearly what to expect, lest we too be scoffed at by the secularists and deniers of this age as the false prophets come and go.

Remember, it will be “as in the days of Noah” and everyone is caught off guard. That people will live their lives seemingly normal, untill the ramps of the Ark were lifted up.

And also of the parable of the Master of the feast who rises to close the doors and many were left outside? They said “Lord Lord, open unto to us. And He said “I do not know you of where you are from”. Ouch! You don’t want to find yourself there where His coming came and went without you because you were not in the ark, meaning the ark of the covenant, the safety zone of living by His promises as seen spelled out in His word we call the New Will and Testament or Covenant. Same thing.

The Ark of the Covenant pictures the security for us through the storms in life. The New Covenant, Will and Testament, instituted by the blood of Christ is our place of sanctification. Whether it’s Noah’s Ark, the Ark of the Covenant or the New Covenant, Will and Testament, being “in Christ” and Heavenly Jerusalem, they are all descriptives of our heavenly home and safety zone with God in the spirit. Where “no weapon formed against you shall prosper”. But you must abide and remain in the “Ark of the Covenant” meaning”in Christ” because unfortunately for your human, it cannot see nor comprehend what we are talking about because “it is with your heart that you must see and hear to recieve the things of God”.

When we abide in that agreement, covenant and testament of God, we are saved, safe and protected by Gods Word and Holy Spirit. This is what it means to be “in Christ” by an act of Faith, which means we can’t prove it.

So let’s get rid of some confusion first on what to look for with Christ’s last  coming because His comings right now are many. He is the ” lol I am with you always”, so you need to quit expecting Him to appear before you in a form more soothing to your carnal senses because He has said “I will never leave you or forsake you”. I am right here right now! Says the Almighty God and Father.

Paul in scripture is a hard one to understand, for even Peter had this to say of Paul that, “16 as also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which untaught and unstable people twist to their own destruction, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures”.

It is primarily because Paul went through a huge transition. That Paul was a full blown Pharisee, being of a”brood of vipers and sons of satan”, untill Paul had this encounter when “suddenly a light shone around him from heaven. Then he fell to the ground, and heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me”? We learn here that when someone does something to one of Gods people, they are doing it to Christ because His body is a body of believers such as us. 

So with the tools Paul aquired from the gospel, he was able to climb up and clamor out of his vial disposition by degrees at a time, as a road map for even the most vile as was he. Pauls testimony was that he was “chosen first as a pattern for all to believe”, to show us that God does, then and now, change even the most despicable.

Paul was a prototype, because the Greek word for “first” is “protos”, and in context it indicates that others would follow Paul’s journey through the gospel and his contributing letters. Like an assembly line of those “putting off the flesh” and “putting on Christ” as scripture commands. Even as Paul had conveyed to us by the time he wrote Colossians saying; In Christ you were also circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the sins of the flesh, (but not the flesh itself, just the sins of ignorant and neglectful thinking) by the circumcision of Christ” as a done deal.

Now if Paul in his beginning wasn’t in his words Chief sinner, he could not qualify as that prototype because then the gospel would need another testifier to fill Paul’s short fall of not being bad enough. But because Paul had led the charge in the antagonism to track down and kill those of the body of Christ because that’s what he was doing when God apprehended him, he delighted in the stoning of Stephen. He was the worst of the worst.

As Paul said “That God would show in me first a pattern (meaning progression) for all to believe”. So you know that there is no one out of reach from grace and the truth of the gospel, because Paul was that example’. He was implicit in hunting down and killing believers in Christ, but God had mercy on him only to demonstrate His forebearance.

Now then, because  Paul started a long ways off, and his letters shows this progression. For this reason his letters are progressive. His epistles are NOT all equally relevant at the same time. Like all scripture, it’s like Jacobs ladder. Paul had to climb up and clamor out of his antagonisms and weaknesses too.

Because of this we can see that salvation is progressive as seen here with Paul in Corinthians saying “5  that you are enriched in everything by Him in all [b]utterance and all knowledge, even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed [c]in you, so that you come short in no gift, eagerly waiting for  the (next) revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will also confirm (and visit) you (all the way) to the end (meaning a completion), in order for you to be blameless in/at the day of our Lord Jesus Christ”.  Or as it says in another place “for those of you who love His appearing”.

It is here that we will report the warning to stay away from those who say “look here and look there! Because it cometh not with (carnal) observation for The Kingdom of God is within you”.  So this should correct your focus.

Now having explained this, let’s take a look at Paul speaking of “the Lords coming” in his earlier understanding.

In 2 Thessalonians Paul wrote, “concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him”. Paul then spells out the obstacle and seemingly an event that has to happen for Christ to appear to your carnal features. That “the mystery of lawlessness is already at work, and will do so until he is taken out of the way”. And if Paul stopped with this, we would all be left thinking that we ARE waiting for another humanly visible work from another coming of Christ to accomplish this task but WE ARE NOT. Because if we were, then Christ would not be the Savior yet and the cross would not have accomplished your rescue for that’s what a Savior does, he saves. For “on Him was laid the inequity of us all (all humanity) and by His stripes you are healed) if you can learn to leave your old self in exchange for the new one like Christ, that He purchased for you at the cross. None of this happens later. It happens in a progression “each one in their own order” at their own time and NOT some collective end time coming.

Their are NOT 2 types of saving or 2 comings to save. There is one saving for all time looking forward and backward because of the permeation of Him who created time, is not subject to time. Therefore you have a time to accept that saving, then to grow in the knowledge of that saving and to put on the implements of that salvation while you sojourn here on earth. We do that one revelation, and one revealing and another coming after another as you are personally able untill the scripture is fulfilled in you that “of His fullness we have received”. Meaning “to work out your own salvation (unto completion) with fear and trembling”. Does this start to dispell the illusion that the Christ must make a camio appearance? In a sense this is a freedom from gravity and your initiation to ascend, to “come up hither” like John was instructed to do for his Revelation.

Paul breaks down this transition saying “Christ the first fruits, then those who are Christ’s at His (consecutive) comings, (Meaning His last coming and not a 2nd coming) then comes the end when He delivers the Kingdom up to the Father”.

The glorious thing is that the “delivering up of the Kingdom” is, as the Kingdom is manifest and fully developed in you, that is your ascension to the Father and the delivering up of the Kingdom because “the Kingdom cometh not with carnal) observation for the Kingdom of God is in you”. And do you what? This happens “in the twinkling of the eye”, which is a fraction of a blink, and completely un-noticable to carnal perseptions. And that is the point. “The Kingdom of God is at hand” apprehendable  and attainable. If it is “at hand” it is within reach, but NOT to the carnal senses. And all  those who are looking for a second coming carnal appearing, alege themselves with those whom Christ said “they will say to you look over here and look over there, but do not go after them for the Kingdom of God is within you”! This is why His coming is imminent. And this is why some of you get this and some don’t. And if you understand this, and have received this, you will quit directing people to physical events and predictions to bring Him back to earth.

The gospel message was given solely as the evacuation process to save you from your Adamic fall of inverted thinking that made you dead in understanding the invisible things of God, to set you back up in your thinking. To “be ye renewed in the spirit of your mind”.

Now being raised back up meaning resurrected, you can commence your journey in your ascention to these stated (invisible) facts, as being totally apprehendable (meaning within reach or at hand) and completely attainable during your carnal existence. This is why Paul said “I plead with you by the mercies of God, BE YE RECONCILED TO THE FATHER! Meaning become one with. You can’t get any closer than this. In this way “The Kingdom of God is at hand”. For further explanation read on.

Now having been saved or made safe, then to implement  the full saving by putting on the instruments God gave you one revelation at a time, then to reach the full realization of all of Gods gift to us. This is what it means to “put on Christ”, “then comes the end”. But when the saving or being safe, and the time of implementation is over. Then the saying at the end of the Revelation from John will be implemented that “He who is unjust, let him be unjust still; he who is filthy, let him be filthy still; he who is righteous, let him [e]be righteous still; he who is holy, let him be holy still.” And salvation is over, time freezes and you are what you are, the gospel gets retracted, the invitation expired.

Then woe to those who haven’t received these new garments, the wedding garments. You don’t get them later for as in the days of Noah, the doors will be closed. For now the Kingdom is still at hand, and the wedding garments are still available.

The question is, did you press in to lay ahold of why Christ laid hold of you? Did you explore the depths and riches of the gospel? Because from this point on you can’t do that anymore, and now everyone will be seen by what they attained to while their sensors of the flesh were distracting them.

So now with Christs coming to save and his multiple comings and appearances to mature us made clear, we can go back to Paul in 2 Thessalonians and where he says of satan “whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and the brightness of His coming”. This has already happened for some of us. We can realize that this does NOT have to be experienced physically. Even as John in his 1st epistle said to the young “you are strong, the word abides in you and you HAVE overcome the wicked one” who also said “what overcomes the world is our faith” and not some second coming event on Earth.

Now with Pauls verbiage saying of the anti-christ, “whom the Lord shall consume with the breath of His mouth and the Brightness of His coming”, could appear to be all future. But let’s look at what Paul writes next in 2 Thessalonians because it contains the very tools Paul needed to defeat “the mystery of lawlessness” in his lifetime. “Whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming”? Because the breath of His mouth is Word and the The Holy Spirit, and the Brightness of Christs coming, is the same bright light Paul first encountered on the road to Damascus. 

We say that because Pauls first encounter with The Son of God was That great light on the road to Damascus and not a man as many suppose, meaning “the Brightness of His coming” had already happened to Paul at least once. Even then Yashuah told Paul “for this reason I’ve appeared to you for you to testify of what I have revealed to you and what I will yet reveal to you” indicating that “the breath of His mouth and the Brightness of His coming would continue to make multiple appearances and NOT just a first and second coming as many suppose.

And we will challenge you here. There is NOT one verse in scripture that reduces Christ to a first and second coming. Go look! The verbage of “the second coming is not in scripture. It is unscriptural because His comings are many. And there is a last coming which will surprise everyone, unless you get this figured out, because “today is the day of salvation”, meaning the completed package all the way to the end. Amen! There is no other time for you to attain what God has for you than the here and now. Your time invested into this has eternally greater benefits then clocking in and out for pay. If people really knew this, corporations would NOT be the dominant powers of today. “Choose you this day who you serve!”

 So then what Paul describes by “coming”, applied to himself as well as for is so that we don’t stay locked into that pattern of stagnation and lack of growth because we need another physical manifestation like the man Jesus was to come again, and then you still don’t believe? If “flesh and blood does not inherit the kingdom”, how is it many people think that’s what Jesus is and that’s what He must appear again like before they give Him proper credit?

Christ the Savior is still that Bright light thousands times a thousand throughout the ages. Didn’t He say “I will never leave you or forsake you? Why then won’t you take Him at His word? Can’t you hear the intensity of Paul saying “I plead with you by the mercies of God, BE YE RECONCILED TO THE FATHER!

For in fact, Paul had already seen Christ who justified his stewardship of the gospel as he told the Corinthians saying “Am I not an apostle? Am I not free? Have I not seen Jesus Christ our Lord?” With these words, Paul by this time had already experienced the Breath of His Mouth and the Brightness of His coming, as we are hoping you are too.

And if this isn’t yet quite clear, let us quote from Paul even later on in his apostleship. To Timothy Paul explained what Christ looks like quite well commanding Timothy “14 that you keep this commandment without spot, blameless until our Lord Jesus Christ’s (final) appearing, 15 which He will manifest in His own time, He who is the blessed and only [e]Potentate, the King of kings and Lord of lords, 16 who He alone has immortality, dwelling in unapproachable light, WHOM NO MAN HAS SEEN NOR CAN SEE, to HIM be honor and everlasting power. Amen.

There is nothing else for us to do now but to continue in the Bright Light. Now it’s up too us to believe and except that the only block between God the Father and His fullness for you is your misconceptions and lack in faith. Do NOT insult the Father and return to a first and second coming mindset set, or you may miss everything in-between.

Since we started with Peter saying that Paul’s teachings were hard to understand. Let’s return to Peter who agrees with us saying to pay attention to “The Bright Light” saying, “19 [i]And so we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts“. Here Peter shows us our part to play, and where the conclusion of the gospel takes place, in your inward part of the heart.

And don’t forget Christs first teaching in the gospel. “ For seeing with their eyes they see not, and hearing with their ears they hear not, for it is with the heart that one must see and hear to receive the things of God”.

Can you receive The Breath/Spirit of His mouth and The Brightness/Revelation of His multiple comings now?

In this way today, as it was first spoken back then, The Kingdom of God is at hand, the Kingdom is preached and all (who are able) are entering. Are you?

Next we will differentiate Christs multiple comings as a Bright Light from Heaven, from His final coming to do His last reset on all of creation.
