The Second Coming: Signs of Christ's Return and the End of the Age
Crossway, 2003 - 240 pages
I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go to prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. Jesus Christ was very clear: one day He will return--and none of us knows when. However, if you listen to the sensationalists who claim to know the specifics, it's easy to forget that many of the details of Christ's return have been purposefully shrouded by God in mystery. The secrecy and the sensationalism of it all can be troubling. But there's no need to let the hype of current events or the mysteries of Scripture discourage you from learning about or preparing for Christ's return. God's own Word commands us to know the signs of the times, to remain watchful, and to be ready--whenever Christ comes. So you're wise to study what the Bible does reveal and to understand what you can. This book is a straightforward, in-depth exploration of the key biblical texts regarding the Second Coming; most notably, Christ's longest and most important eschatological message, the Olivet Discourse. As you are exposed to the Word of God on these matters, and as you study His Word yourself, it will stir in your heart an earnest longing for Christ's return--as well as a certainty about how to live expectantly until He comes again.
