Revelation

 

At the first advent of Christ, His glory was veiled. People only saw the son of a poor carpenter. Only Peter, James and John, saw a glimpse of His glory in the transfiguration.

But at the Second Advent, things will change dramatically.

Everyone will see Him coming in all of His glory.

From those who executed Him, which is a phrase referring to all unbelieving Jews who will be living at the time of the Second Advent, to all tribes of the earth. And all tribes, is a reference to all of the gentile nations of the world.

Therefore, His glory will be so bright (far brighter than our daytime sun), that the entire planet, will be witness to the return of Christ.

And the response of people around the world? They will mourn.

Zech. 12:10

10 “And I will pour out on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and of supplication, so that they will look on Me whom they have pierced; and they will mourn for Him, as one mourns for an only son, and they will weep bitterly over Him, like the bitter weeping over a first-born. NASB

Some of the mourning will be of repentance. Many will be saved at that last minute of history.

But too, many, both Jew and gentile, will not repent, will not believe, but will grieve over their impending doom.

The word for mourn, ‘kopto,’ means to cut, or is a reference for extreme grieving or despair.

Rev 9:21

21 and they did not repent of their murders nor of their sorceries nor of their immorality nor of their thefts.

NASB

And all of this mourning, either through last minute panic and belief, or for fear of ones impending doom, will come from those who are about to die.

Those who are about to be delivered, mature believers who have managed to conceal themselves, are not included in this group. They will be celebrating in relief, as one celebrates when a huge burden of pressure is lifted from ones life.

But at the Second Advent, there will be billions of people worldwide, who have pursued the anti-christ and evil, and now in their last minutes of life, will have front row seats, to witness the one whom they have rejected as an unimportant person in life. And everyone will simultaneously realize their mistake.

And then, the lights of their lives, will go out in a dramatic and violent fashion.

We are still not finished with this verse!




These studies are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.

And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever.

To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.

The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.

But each person has to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.

Keep in the Word, Isa. 41:10.
