Discussion for Isaiah 9:8

    What is rapture and the second coming of Jesus christ
  • Jesse - in Reply on Isaiah 9:8

    In order for there to be a second coming, there had to be a first. Jesus did walk this earth some 2,000 plus years ago. That was His first coming. His feet were physically on the ground. At His second coming, He will again physically step foot on solid ground. However, at the rapture, Jesus does not come all the way to the earth. We meet Him in the air. So the rapture is separate from His second coming. At the rapture, we will be taken into heaven to partake of the wedding feast while chaos will be taking place here on the earth. Afterward, when Christ does come back at His second coming, all those who were raptured, we come back with Him. Christ's second coming will be His "Triumphant Return." He is coming to rule and reign. He will come on a white horse, and all His people coming with Him will also be riding white horses.

    Hello, just because Jesus walked with man on the earth the first time does not mean that he has to walk the earth a second time. For example, Jesus was the second Adam but he was not the first Adam.

  • Mishael - in Reply on Isaiah 9:8
    The Rapture - the raising of the Church into heaven (1 Thessalonians 4:17): is the next event on the prophetic calendar. The Rapture is when Christ comes back and takes every Christian that is still on this earth and resurrects all of those who have died and takes them to heaven with Him. In 1 Thessalonians 5:1-8, Paul expresses that the Lord's return will be like a thief in the night. No one knows the date or time. However, there are several signs of the End Times that we can all be aware of. Events such as earthquakes and diseases, war and dispute among nations, and persecution against Christians are all signs leading to the Rapture.

    The rapture is when all believers are brought to heaven when Jesus comes back to get them. The dead and the undead.

  • Just chatting with us watchmen - in Reply on Isaiah 9:8
    I was searching things in the Blank Search Box one day. I don't know why, but I typed in 'China'. The search database knows these scriptures concern Chinese interests.

    They concern pandemics. There are 3. So I googled a list of all past pandemics with World death counts. It goes way back in history. Quite unsettling to read. CDC confirms it. Some pandemics were due to "swine flu". Corona virus evolves into more dangerous forms.

    You'll have to Google because I'm not sure if it was this year or 2019? President Trump put sanctions on China exporting pork that is infected with swine flu. They got caught trying to smuggle in a million pounds of infected pork in January.

    Corrupt business buys their cheap meat and sells it to Americans; then China pays high prices to the US to have non-infected meat imported there. I hope Trump stopped the entire process? Ignorance is bliss. I don't want to think about it. I hope Jesus will return soon.

    We take so many things for granted. That everything is safe that we put in our grand babies mouths. I've got everyone praying over food at my place. We've got to be wise and also be full of faith. Trust in God implicitly. Do the do's, and stop doing the don'ts.

    I just heard (no joking) the Holy Spirit singing "I walk The Line" by Johnny Cash.

    So I jet over to YouTube to have a singalong. There was a comment "is anyone else up at 2am listening to Johnny sing?" (during the co-vid crisis?). Many comments by Christians! It's so cool. John wrote that song to God!

    I can't wait to get to Heaven!!!

    Sinning is so hopeless when you compare it to eternity with all, and who is in heaven. Why would you want to miss out?

    So many Christians are just lost for God's understanding sometimes there worried earthquakes, wars, corona 19 virus, famine, I can go on and on but the fact is Jesus warned us about such things my friend these are happening for a season they will past but they are signs of the latter days trust the Lord no matter what, God hasn't forgotten us he knows what is going on he will take care of his people the Bible tells us that .
  • Mishael - in Reply on Isaiah 9:8
    Thank you for your encouragement. It means so much to have the body of Christ pulling for each other. You never know when someone needs a kind word.
  • Terry allen on Isaiah 9:8
    Isaiah 9 8 god spoke to Jacob to go and speak to the Israelites that he is the almighty and the he will redeem the and save all form their sins if they would call upon him and him only to be their God and that is why Israel was lighted up talking about the spiritual light and not the light as in a light bulb for he is the light of the world and Israel is his chosen nation
