One of the greatest promises we have as followers of Christ is that the Lord Jesus will return. When will it be? Why did He leave in the first place? We’ll take a look at these puzzling mysteries; and here is where you will also find Second Coming – FREE colouring pages, puzzles, crafts and creative ideas to encourage our children… enjoy!
A BIT OF BACKGROUND
Before the Lord Jesus was executed for crimes – my sins and your sins – He did not commit, He was rejected as the Messiah, the Meshiach Nagid, by the ruling Jewish leaders, even though He had fulfilled an amazing 300+ highly specific prophecies, all written down in ‘black and white’ hundreds of years before He was born. After His death and resurrection, He returned to Heaven to wait for them to realise their mistake, to repent, and then to call Him back. The first disciples expected His return at any moment, and their writings in the New Testament reflect this. So far, that gap has since lasted nearly 2,000 years. However, Scripture tells us that before that happens, Israel (and the world) will first accept an imposter Messiah, one who may already be waiting in the wings of history ready to take the stage. Meanwhile, we are to live with an expectation of watchful waiting, telling others the good news, being salt and light to those around us, to be obedient to what He wants us to do, and to ‘occupy’ until the Lord Jesus comes. He calls us to make disciples, helping to rescue everyone we can FROM the cesspool, rather than trying to clean UP the cesspool. Only God can do that.
- Rapture = harpazo (Greek) = rapio (Latin) = caught up | to seize upon with force | to snatch up. Perhaps like a parent snatching up their child from imminent danger, such as a car barrelling down on them.
- Second Coming = when the Messiah returns in full splendour and magnificence to take up His rightful inheritance that He won on the cross.
Have you ever noticed that Bible verses about the Rapture and the Second Coming seem to fall into two distinct categories that seem to contradict each other? Scroll down to the ‘Bible verses’ section to see a sample. Meanwhile, take a two-minute holiday and listen as Dr Chuck Missler explains that when you see a ‘discrepancy’ like this in the Bible, rejoice, there is a secret mystery hidden there…
THE RAPTURE / SECOND COMING / JESUS IS COMING AGAIN ~ BIBLE VERSES
Rapture | Second Coming – a list of Bible verses (Chuck Missler) Have you ever noticed that Bible verses about the Rapture and the Second Coming seem to fall into two distinct categories that seem to contradict each other? Let’s take a look.
Acts 1:9-11 And when He had spoken these things, while they beheld, He was taken up; and a cloud received Him out of their sight. And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel, which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.
John 14:1-3 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
James 5:7-8 Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waits for the precious fruit of the earth, and has long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain. Be ye also patient; establish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draws nigh.
2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
Hosea 5:15 I will go and return to my place, till they acknowledge their offence, and seek my face: in their affliction they will seek me [earnestly].
2 Timothy 3:1-13 This know, also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, without self control, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God… Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof… ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth… so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith… Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.
Matthew 24:37 But as the days of Noe (Noah) were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
Luke 17:26 And as it was in the days of Noe (Noah), so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
1 Thessalonians 1:9-10 …ye turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God; and to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.
2 Thessalonians 2:3-9 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God… And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of His mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming. Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders. And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie.
Matthew 25:13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
Matthew 24:42-46 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come… Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man comes. Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
Matthew 25:5-6 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
Mark 13:33-37 Take ye heed, watch and pray; for ye know not when the time is. For the Son of Man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch. Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the Master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: Lest coming suddenly He find you sleeping. And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.
1 Thessalonians 5:2 …the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night…
2 Peter 3:10-11 But the Day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be…
Revelation 3:11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.
1 Corinthians 15:51-53 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed. In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
Luke 21:27-28 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draws nigh.
Revelation 1:7 Behold, He cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see Him, and they also which pierced Him, and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.
1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
1 John 3:2 …it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
Note: This is a quantum physics Bible verse. When He appears we shall be like Him (i.e. enjoy all the extra physical dimensions that He has – like being able to walk through doors in our 4D universe) for we shall see Him… as He is. We would have to share all His dimensions to be able to do that. Since the discovery that the quality of time makes our universe 4D… scientists have discovered that there must be at least 10 dimensions!
Matthew 24-25 (The Lord Jesus gives the disciples a special briefing about the Second Coming that covers two chapters. Read it for yourself!)
THE RAPTURE / SECOND COMING / JESUS IS COMING AGAIN ~ INFORMATION ~ FREE PRINTABLE
- The Ancient Jewish Wedding Model
The Mystery of the Ancient Jewish Wedding (Paper Gifts for Estefany) When we trust Him as our Lord and Saviour, we are set apart for Him, expectantly preparing and waiting for His imminent return at any moment. We are to love Him with ALL of our hearts, with ALL of our souls, with ALL of our might. It is the time now to prepare ourselves for our eternal home, becoming more and more beautiful, submitting to the sanctification and purification process. We are making our garments here, what we will wear there. When His Father says, ‘go’, the Lord Jesus will come again for us ‘as a thief in the night’, this time as The King of Kings. We will be lifted up and carried away to go to live with Him forever, into the new home He has prepared for us, one we have only longed for and dreamed about.
The Wedding Model – The Rapture (Chuck Missler) The Wedding Model; All through the Gospels, Jesus relied on the ancient Jewish wedding pattern for many of His parables, climaxing in His promise in the Upper Room in John 14. Many of us miss the full import of these allusions if we aren’t familiar with the model of ancient Jewish wedding practices.
Before the Wrath – movie trailer | Before the Wrath – longer movie clip (starting at the 8:50 mark) Newly rediscovered ancient anthropological evidence from the time of Christ finally reveals unprecedented findings that could prove the upcoming Rapture is not only real to a skeptical world but sheds new light on how and why this event must take place. These findings resulted from 10-years of research in Israel by leading ancient anthropological scholars which rediscovered lost Middle-Eastern views regarding how and why the biblical “catching away” was prophesied to occur. While everyone has been debating “when” this event is to happen, we’ve forgotten to ask “why” it does, and the answer could be the greatest theological discovery of our time. (Note from PGFE: I have personally seen this powerful and beautiful documentary and highly recommend it.)
- The Rapture / The Second Coming
Our Blessed Hope – Rapture Q&A (Chuck Missler) At the Rapture, living believers will be “caught up” in the air, translated into the clouds in a moment in time, to join the Lord in the air. This will be the fulfillment of the promise which our Lord confirmed at the Last Supper… This thrilling promise wasn’t given to everyone, only to His believers. (Judas had already left by then.) This appears to parallel the promise of the bridegroom in the pattern of the ancient Jewish wedding, where, after the ketubah, the engagement, but before the huppah, the formal ceremony, the groom departed to prepare a new home for his bride, usually an addition to his father’s house. The bride was kept in a state of expectancy pending his return – often in the middle of the night, as a surprise… Clearly, the Bible teaches us to expect Him at any moment… hope and a warm spirit of expectancy, which should result in a victorious and purified life.
The Rapture – Q&A (Chuck Missler) The “taking out”. Who stays? Who goes? When will it happen? Bible teacher and scholar Chuck Missler takes a look at the many beliefs about this pivotal event in prophecy. He will clear up some common misconceptions, as well as explore some provocative possibilities regarding the Church, the pseudo-Christ (or anti-Christ) and the nation of Israel.
Rapture: Are you ready? (raptureready) Jesus will come in the air, catch up the Church from the earth, and then return to heaven with the Church… Knowing the Antichrist’s mother’s maiden name isn’t the primary goal. Knowing Jesus Christ as your personal Savior and having your name written in the Lamb’s Book of Life should be your number-one priority.
Seven Mysterious Letters (Chuck Missler) Early in my teens, I encountered a Bible teacher who heralded that The Book of Revelation is written in code; but every code is explained somewhere else in the Bible. That really caught my attention. And that discovery changed my entire life.
The Book of Revelation (Chuck Missler) The Book of Revelation is the only book of the Bible that promises a special blessing to the reader… in order to understand the background of the many idioms and allusions, one will have to trace back into virtually every book of the Bible. The Book of Revelation consists of 404 verses which contain over 800 allusions to the Old Testament alone! One reason the book appears so strange to the uninitiated is that most of us haven’t developed enough familiarity with the Old Testament. One of the keys to understanding the book is also to take it seriously, not to get distracted with fanciful allegories or speculations but to read it with care and diligence as part of the whole Word of God. The Bible consists of 66 books, penned by 40 authors over thousands of years, and yet we now discover that it is an integrated message: every detail, every word, every number, every place name is there by supernatural engineering. And no study makes this clearer than the study of the Book of Revelation.
The Second Coming/ Millenium (Chuck Smith; scroll down) Right now, the first resurrection is a process over a period of time. It began with Jesus Christ. He is the firstfruits. And it continues as each child of God, living and believing in Jesus Christ, as they fall asleep in Christ, the first resurrection continues… And then will come the end when He delivers the kingdom up to the Father, when He will have put down all rule and authority and powers. Now, this will not take place until He has reigned on the earth for a thousand years… vanquished every rebel against God. You see, in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth, there was only one government in the universe, the government of God, a government of life and light… Satan, Lucifer, rebelled against the authority of God and formed in the universe a second kingdom. A kingdom that was opposed to the first kingdom, in rebellion against the first kingdom. A kingdom of death and darkness. One day Jesus Christ will put an end to Satan’s rebellion completely. And when every anti-God foe is brought into judgement and disposed, then Jesus will present this perfect kingdom to the Father… He must reign until He has put all enemies under His feet.
The AntiChrist Q&A (Chuck Missler) The Coming World Leader — commonly known as the Antichrist — has 33 titles in the Old Testament and 13 in the New Testament… The Bible offers many clues regarding the identity of this Man of Sin. Join Chuck Missler as he considers the Biblical passages concerning the Coming World Leader — his character, his activities, and his ultimate destiny.
Count Down Fever (heavenlyraindrops) Are we there yet? Since we visited our grandparents infrequently, and because of our overwhelming anticipation, my siblings and I willingly participated in this well-practiced game of count down fever. It helped click away the time to know precisely how many more hours were left, and brought some much-needed relief to our car fever. Additionally, it absolutely annoyed our parents, something from which every child derives immense satisfaction! A fabulous reminder that time is running out. Be blessed and inspired as Sue shares with us… if the rapture were in one month / one week / one day / one hour / one second, I would…
The Three ‘Untils’ (Paper Gifts for Estefany) There are 3 ‘untils’ that affect the timeline of the rapture and the second coming: until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in; until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled; until they acknowledge their offence [i.e. rejecting Jesus Christ as their Meshiach Nagid].
- As in the Days of Noah / The Great Delusion
2 Thessalonians 2:10-11 …because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie.
The Rapture: A Counterfeit Explanation (Dr Chuck Missler; pdf) Millions will vanish, but it will be explained away…! Will those left behind find the truth or swallow the delusion? Ever wondered what is going to happen when millions of people all over the world suddenly vanish? How could this possibly be explained away by anything other the Bible? Did you know that the Evil One has been busy, preparing humanity for a counterfeit explanation, to prevent those left behind from finding the truth and a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, our Creator who loved us enough to leave Heaven and step into history to pay the penalty for my sins and yours. When I read this, I couldn’t believe it. But thanks to Hollywood and others, this is now a very plausible reality…
Mischievous Angels? (Chuck Missler) Since Jesus prophesied, “As the days of Noah were, so shall the coming of the Son of Man be,” it becomes essential to understand what these days included.
And also after that (Chuck Missler) …we explored the importance of understanding Genesis 6. The straightforward presentation of the text seems to clearly portray a strange union of fallen angels with women to produce a hybrid race… Chuck Missler delves into the controversial topics of fallen angels, Nephilim, UFO encounters, alien abductions, and how they might all be connected Biblically.
As the Days of Noah – Alien Encounters (Chuck Missler) explores the controversial subject of alien encounters, and how they might be related to our biblical past, and prophetic future. Many wonder if there is a connection or relationship to the prediction of our Lord. We do, indeed, “wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
The Rapture: Did millions disappear? Where did they go? What’s next? (eternal-productions) God’s Word has promised to remove those who trust in Him before the period that is called the Great Tribulation occurs… taken out of this sinful and rebellious world to spare them from the great wrath that will befall the planet.
UFOs are not extraterrestrial (creation.com) …but deliberate and insidious attempts by dark spiritual forces to deceive mankind… I had always highlighted the inconsistency that our [supposed] ‘alien creators’ couldn’t get their stories straight about where they were from. Once they were from planets in our own solar system, but we’ve visited those planets and shown them to be liars. Now they come from distant star systems where we cannot test their claims.
UFOs and visitations = deceptions manifested by Satan and his minions (creation.com) Joe Jordan who I mentioned in the book has now met and counseled over 400 former abductees whose experiences have stopped in the name of Christ, or people praying, singing hymns, etc. If they are really ETs from another world, what is it about Christians [i.e. the name of Jesus] they don’t like?
Do UFOs exist? If so, what are they? (Dr Chuck Missler) Dr. John E. Mack, professor of psychiatry at The Cambridge Hospital, Harvard Medical School has been involved in almost a hundred ‘UFO abduction’ cases personally and has shocked the professional community by declaring that he believes these beings may be real and that they appear to have an agenda to develop a hybrid race! Could all this involve a return to the strange events of “the Days of Noah?”
The Rapture – Q&A (Chuck Missler) The Rapture. Harpazo. Who stays? Who goes? When will it happen? Bible teacher and scholar Chuck Missler examines the many beliefs about this pivotal event in prophecy. He will clear up some common misconceptions, as well as explore some provocative possibilities regarding the Church, the pseudo-Christ and the nation of Israel.

The Coming Deception – video (Chuck Missler)
The Days of Noah – video (Chuck Missler)
Jesus promised to come back – video (Chuck Missler; start about the 2:27 mark) The last evening He had with His disciples, the Lord Jesus made them a very specific promise.
Alien Intrusion – movie (creation.com) Unmasking a Deception. Millions of people have seen UFOs – including astronauts and radar operators. Others claim frightening encounters with strange entities. Are they advanced aliens from a galaxy far, far away… or something else? There is a very simple – and Biblical – explanation. The truth will surprise you. If you are curious about UFOs and the paranormal, you won’t want to miss this exciting documentary…
The Final Age (khouse) Prophecy buffs are very familiar with the Biblical predictions concerning an anti-Christ that will arise and lead the whole world into its final age of rebellion against God… The end game of the [evil one] is not mere world domination but to finish the work of rebellion that was started in Genesis Chapter 3. His objective then is the same as his objective now, to separate mankind from their relationship with a loving God. Out of fear, a desperate and deceived world will follow this man of sin in his final attempt to resist the God he has known since before the world was created.
Revelation 18 Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen… Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven… and she shall be utterly burned with fire… the smoke of her burning… And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee… for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived. And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.
A little bit of Greek: That word ‘sorceries’ = G5331 | φαρμακεία | pharmakeia | far-mak-i’-ah | From G5332; medication (“pharmacy”), that is, (by extension) magic (literal or figurative): – sorcery, witchcraft. Biblehub adds, ‘The use of medicine, drugs, or spells, magic, sorcery, enchantment.’
- The 7Cs of History
Consummation – 7C’s of Gospel History (creation.com) Forty days after Jesus rose from the dead, He ascended to heaven, where we know He lived with the Father before He came to earth. On a hilltop, as His disciples watched, He went up through the air until a cloud hid Him from their sight. Two angels then appeared and told the disciples: “This same Jesus … will come back in the same way as you have seen Him go into heaven”. Ever since then, Christians all over the world have been looking forward to the return of the Lord Jesus Christ. This future event is called ‘the Second Coming’. It will be the climax or the consummation of everything that Jesus came to earth to do… beautifully illustrated articles for kids showing God’s big plan of redemption for mankind, from scientists who take the Bible seriously, and one of the Seven C’s of Gospel History (the final one). The others are: Creation; Curse; Catastrophe; Confusion; Covenant; Christ.
Thy Kingdom Come: The Millennium (Chuck Missler) …the Church grew to allegorize the prophecies concerning the earthly reign of the Messiah. However, the Bible treats the Millennium as the literal thousand-year rule of Christ from Jerusalem…
