What we believe and teach: Eschatology – The coming of Christ and our gathering together to Him

holy-bibleThe Lord Jesus Christ will come back in His time on the clouds of heaven with power and glory, and with the holy angels. He will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first, then we who are alive and remain shall be changed by the power of God and we will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. In that day all those who are Christ’s will receive a body which will be like the glorious body of Christ. Therefore their bodies will be immortal, powerful and glorious. In that day the redemption of our body, which we are eagerly waiting for, will be fulfilled.

The coming of Christ and our gathering together to Him will take place after the falling away has come and the man of sin (that is, the antichrist) has been revealed. The man of sin will oppose and exalt himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, and will set himself up in God’s temple proclaiming himself to be God. He will perform all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders, and every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing. In that day the Lord Jesus will consume the man of sin with the breath of His mouth and will destroy him with the brightness of His coming. We reject the doctrine called ‘secret rapture.’

The coming of the Lord is near. The day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. Let us see to it that we abide in Christ, that when He appears, we may have confidence and not be ashamed before Him at His coming. (Giacinto Butindaro, from http://www.the-new-way.org/wwbat/index.html)
