When the Lord Jesus Shall Be Revealed – Part 1

2Thessalonians 1:7 And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels

‘And to you who are troubled rest with us …’ This is the first New Testament prophecy in 2 Thessalonians and it is unfulfilled.

‘When the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels.’ The time of the Second Coming: Immediately after the tribulation (Matt. 24:29; 25:31; Rev. 11:1 – 19:21). At the beginning of the Millennium (Rev. 19:11-21; 20:1-10). After the Antichrist reigned 3½ years (Rev. 13:5; 19:11-21; 2Thess. 2:7-8). At the end of this age (Matt. 13:38-43, 47-50; 24:3, 29-31; 25:31-46). After ten kingdoms are formed inside the old Roman empire (Dan. 2:44-45; 7:23-24; Rev. 13:1-18; 19:11-21). In the days of terrible moral conditions as in the days of Lot and Noah (Matt. 24:37-51; Luke 17:22-27; 2Tim. 3:1-13; 4:1-4; 2Pet. 2:1-22; Jude 1:14-15). After the Congregational age (2:7-8; Acts 15:13-18; Jude 1:14; Zech. 14:5). When Jerusalem is surrounded by armies and half the city is taken (Zech. 14:1-5, 14-21; Joel 3:1-21). After the resurrection of the righteous dead and 1,000 years before the resurrection of the wicked (Rev. 20:1-15; Zech. 14:5; Jude 1:14). After all of Revelation 4-19 is fulfilled (Rev. 19:11-21; 20:1-10). At the time satan is bound before the Millennium (Rev. 20:1-7). When Israel is restored and converted and Christ takes the throne of David to begin His reign over Israel forever (Isa. 9:6-7; Hos. 3:4-5; Luke 1:32-33; Ezek. 36:23-28; 37:16-28).

‘Shall be revealed’ – The fact of the Second Coming: Eight things it is not: It is not the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. This was another Comforter, not Jesus (John 14:16-26; 15:26; 16:7-15). Not conversion (Matt. 18:3; John 3:1-8; Acts 3:19; 26:18; Jas. 5:19-20). Not death which takes place among men every minute (Jas. 2:26; 1Cor. 15:26). Not the destruction of Jerusalem in A.D. 70 (Luke 21:20-24). Christ restores Jerusalem when He comes (Zech. 14:1-21). Not the preaching of the gospel. His coming is sudden and only once (Matt. 24:27-51; 25:31-46; 2Thess. 1:1-12; Rev. 19:1-21). Not a spiritual coming (Zech. 14:1-21; Matt. 24:29-31; 2Thess. 1:1-12; Rev. 19:1-21). Not the founding of the body of Christ which took place while Christ was here (Matt. 16:18; 2Cor. 3:11; Eph. 2:19-22; Acts 15:13-16). Not the rapture.
