Second Advent of Christ: THROUGH BIRTH
Second Advent of Christ, "Second Advent" of the Lord, The Returning Christ, The Second Coming of Christ is the return of Jesus Christ from Heaven
Second Advent: THROUGH BIRTH
Google translate from Bulgarian
The Bible foretells the birth of Messianic person who will change the world. The Messiah at the Second Advent will be born in the East. Jesus will personally give him the mission to save the world. Yet, He will be first rejected and persecuted by this generation.
The Bible promises a new and complete truth
As the Bible itself says in 1 Corinthians 13:8-12 now we don't have the complete truth:
"For we know in part and we prophesy in part (The Gospel)... Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known."
So it is not biblical to say that the Bible is the complete truth, because Bible itself claims that it is not. So when the full understanding comes, the partial will be abolished, says Apostle Paul in I Corinthians 13:10. "but when perfection comes (The Complete Truth), the imperfect disappears. " The problem throughout the history is that when we are caught in the partial, we do not want to let it go and accept the full.
New revelations about the return of Christ
Many Christians receive direct revelations and guidance about the return of Christ. However, they contradict the traditional understanding of return on the clouds. According to them, immediately after the emergence of "The Red Dragon" (communism), in the East will be born sinless child. It will grow and bring salvation to the world and lead people of all races, cultures and religions to build God's kingdom on earth. These new revelations, though difficult to accept are firmly based on Biblical predictions:
Conclusions of the Second Coming of Elijah
If we consider the second coming of Elijah, it becomes clear how God works and how Christ will return. Since the second coming of Elijah is supposed to represent the return of Elijah who went up into the sky, people expected and believed that Elijah will undoubtedly descend from heaven. But Jesus clearly states that John the Baptist, who was born on earth, is Elijah (Matt. 11:14, 17:13). The fact that the second coming of Elijah is carried out by John the Baptist does not mean that Elijah himself was born again as John the Baptist. Elijah is in the spiritual world and is helping John, who had the same mission on earth (Luke 1:17). Therefore, although the mission is the same, the person is different.
The words of Jesus himself about the Second Coming
From the words of Jesus in the Bible we can understand that the Second Coming, Christ will most likely be born on the earth. As predicted in Revelation 12:5,
A great and wondrous sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth... She gave birth to a son, a male child, who will rule all the nations with an iron scepter. And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne. (Revelation 12:5)
There is no other child that can have such direct connection to God, accept if it's being born sinless - the Messiah. In other words, when the second coming of Messiah comes, he will look different and even have a "new name". As stated in Rev. 19:12, "and bearing a new name that no one knew ... and his name was the word of God. "
Is Bible really predicting this? Could Jesus really forward his mission to another? In John 14:16 Jesus alludes to just that: "And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Comforter to be with you for ever." Jesus even clarifies why must come another: "I have yet many things to say to you, but you can not bear them now. And when He comes (the Lord of the Second Coming), the Spirit of truth will guide you into all truth." Here Jesus is talking about the Complete Truth that will be given by the Lord of the Second Advent.
Bible is clear, the Second Coming will be born as a child with different name. Jesus will give him his mission and he will reveal the full truth to the world that Jesus did not revealed then because people were not yet ready for it 2000 years ago.
Jesus will give his Messianic mission to another
Can we be sure that this is really what will happen? These words of Jesus given in the revelation to the prophet John, are even more adamant.
To him who overcomes and does my will to the end, I will give authority over the nations— 'He will rule them with an iron scepter; he will dash them to pieces like pottery'— just as I have received authority from my Father. (Revelation 2:26-28)
As Jesus was anointed with the Messianic authority to rule the nation, meaning to be Christ-Messiah, which translated means "Anointed to rule", so is he going to "anoint" the Lord of the Second Advent with the same Mission. "Just as I have received... from my Father", promises Jesus to the prophet.
This shows that another sinless person as Jesus will appear ("having deeds pure as His") and that Jesus himself would give him the same mission (as I received from my Father), which is the Messianic mission (to rule all nations with an iron staff). That means to be the "anointed one" as a "King of Kings", meaning Christ, Messiah.
But some would ask, why than Jesus said that he is the only Son of God, and there is no other name to bring us salvation? Isn't that in contradiction with the prophecy of the Bible, that he will come with a "New Name". No it is not. 2000 years ago it was true; at that time Jesus was the only Son of God and there was still no other name by which salvation comes. But not only the Bible is clear that the Second Coming of Christ, Second Advent of the Lord, is with a "new name", but also the qualification of a Son of God, will no longer be valid for only one person. In fact the purpose for which God is sending the Messiah is to restore all people as God's Children - Sons and Daughters of God.
The Second Advent will rule with the "Word"
In both quotations, Rev. 2:26-28 (That Jesus will give the same mission as he has received from the Father) and Rev. 12:5 (the birth of a boy, who right from his birth has a relationship with God), Bible is clearly talking about one and the same person ("who will rule all nations in a rod of iron"). This expression everywhere in the Bible is specifying the Messianic figure, the person who will bring the rule of God's righteousness through the "Word", "The Truth". Therefore we cannot expect him to do some special signs or miracles. The biggest miracle Christ brings is the Truth by which to live. The biggest miracle which he has to achieve is to transform the world towards goodness through this word. This is the reason, why Bible everywhere talks about the sword coming out of his mouth that he will judge with.
The Bible predicts a failure of Christians to accept
Is it possible then that today's Christianity will deny the Bible and turn against the will of Jesus, by rejecting this anointed by Jesus man, who is the Second Coming of the Messiah? Jesus himself warns us of this. He asked, "When he (the Lord of the Second Coming) comes, will he find faith?" He also warned us that the Second Coming will come as a "thief in the night".
When the child is born on earth only selected pure people will know by revelations, while others, even Christian leaders may be in darkness. Therefore, they can certainly turn against him and instead of becoming the first to be saved they will become persecutors and criticize the Lord of Second Advent, because of their ignorance. For this, Jesus will have to condemn even the most devoted Christians, "Depart from me you evildoers..." even though their pride and certainty of salvation is in their words, "Not in thy name we prophesied and spoke languages, and preached". At the moment they turn against those who sent Jesus, they automatically become the biggest evildoers in the eyes of God. If reject to hear, as has always been in history of all prophets sent by God. Prophets were always misunderstood and persecuted and Bible warns us that many Christians will easily do the same mistake and reject the Messiah at the Second Advent.
Jesus called the young Moon at the age of 15
Can anyone be called a true Christian, if he goes against the will of Jesus. Reverend Moon begun to communicate with God and Jesus at his early age. He was 15 years old when Jesus Himself appeared to him and repeatedly urged the young Korean boy, to accept this mission and lead the implementation of God's will on earth. If we don't know why Jesus have called Sun Myung Moon to fulfill the role of the Second Coming of the Lord, we should ask Jesus himself.
Of course it is much easier to spit in the face of Jesus and say, "I can not accept that you work with Korean, I'm not expecting the second Advent in such way." The Bible warns that God is working not the way we expect, but we always think we know better than God. It is difficult for us to be humble and sincerely ask Jesus himself, what he thinks. It is hard to have patience and perseverance in our prayers and sincere search until He answers. But if we sincerely pray with an open heart, than God will find the way to guide us to understand the truth. And that's what happened to me.
Personal testimony from God
One day God took me into the spiritual world and I heard the angels and saints to say, "That is the Messiah, and through hole of your life we were preparing you just for this, so you can accept and follow him." I was shown by the spirit Rev. Moon's life and victories in the past 70 years. I saw spiritually how he brought the end of communism (The Red Dragon), as predicted in the Bible. When I regained myself, my legs trembled. I couldn't tell anyone else who the Messiah is. Who would understand? People were sitting next to me but they wouldn't believe if I told them. Then I understood the quote, " two will be in the same bed, in the same field... one will be grabbed and the other not." The rapture is in our hearts, not in the physical air. God's Ideal is also to be established in our hearts, not in the physical air and vaporized water in the clouds.
I went in my room, crying and praying, "Heavenly Father I know you're telling me this, but I can not accept it." I wanted a messiah on clouds. I did not like God's way. But the Bible proved me wrong in this too. In Revelation 17:15 it is clear that "water" symbolizes the sinful multitudes of people, while "clouds" are the purified, separated from the sin and prepared to accept the Second Coming. Yes Jesus said he would come again on clouds, but we read in Philippians, this refers to "cloud of witnesses", those with pure and sincere heart being able to understand and accept the Lord of the Second Coming.
Second Advent of Christ, "Second Advent" of the Lord, The Returning Christ, The Second Coming of Christ is the return of Jesus Christ from Heaven to Earth as expected in Christian eschatology
