Encouraging Word for you and me today to the Bible-based preaching of Dr. Don Wilton in a message second coming will don't fear is coming for the Bible calls our blessed hope, today's message is the second coming of Jesus Christ is a matter that will be having a two message series and the uniqueness is you don't really hear as much of the radio, but the reality is it's coming from the holy land is something that put together with Dr. Wilson live from Golden gate just outside the Golden gate of the holy man and you won't see on the radio. You will hear the uniqueness of the message standing there, the Golden gate from our pastor Dr. Don Wilton as he shares God's word and gives us a very clear picture about what's coming second coming of Jesus were available for you, both online and The Encouraging Word.org and 866899 word hello my dear friends. I'm just so delighted to be able to share God's word with you today. Mostly because this is God's Encouraging Word.
I mean, is there any greater joy than that but I want to tell you specifically because where I am today.
You can hardly believe this I'm I'm preaching to you and teaching you today right under I mean literally standing under the Eastern gate of the temple mound in Jerusalem. I'm right here at the most disputed territory in all the world. The hardest place that you could possibly be. But the single most significant place for those of us who know and love the Lord Jesus Christ. You know, just to contextualize I'm looking directly into the camera at Mount Scopes and right below me has the garden of Gethsemane and to my right is the beautiful Mount of olives, which is just so deeply significant.
Of course, right behind maybe looking back to the will of the southern steps of the temple mound to my lift chair is the dome of the rock right next to me and I'm standing right under the Golden gate as we know it told the Eastern gate of the temple and I've got so much to talk with you about today and I just hope you're ready because these messages going to be fantastic so I just want to pray for you right now. Dear Lord, I am praying for all of us right now praying for me as I I preach here in this very tumultuous place. I'm very mindful, even as I speak that I could be interrupted at any minute.
Not unlike the Lord Jesus, who was just interrupted all the time and everything that he did not feel it in this place. Lord I pray for those who listening today. I'll pray for The Encouraging Word board because I pray for labs to be changed. I'm going to claim people for Jesus right now because of this spot because of where I am. Because what you say in your word in Jesus name, amen.
All right. You gonna need your Bibles. We gotta be looking at the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. What an incredible subject we just get this out the way Jesus is coming back again.
How folks listen carefully, see where I'm standing here Jesus is coming he's gonna pause right by here he's going to go through that gate that is being sealed until he's coming and I'm going to talk to you about that on the show you where that is in the Bible I'm gonna take you to some prophecies we don't understand some of these deep truths from God's word, you're ready the second coming. Let's try and understand this together. All right, first I want to begin in Revelation chapter 19 in verse 11 of you got your Bibles. You might want to turn there with me and follow along.
Maybe you would just like to listen for a little while. We are to be in Revelation just to begin with but get ready I'm going to be in the book of Zechariah, I'm going to be in the book of Ezekiel, so you might want to get ready. There little tab in Zechariah in Ezekiel and maybe some other Bible places we gotta go to because I believe in what God's word has to say. That's why this is The Encouraging Word. It's God's word. God's word is absolutely true. Every word from Genesis to Revelation. If I want to know about Jesus coming when he's coming how he's coming what he's got annuities coming how my going to be involved in his coming. What is this mean I'm going to go to God's word and God is going to teach me about these things and he's going to show me these things in these would so this is very exciting son. Revelation chapter 19. At the end of three unbelievable tribulation judgments that are poured out upon this earth that is what the Bible says Revelation 19 and verse 11 I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called faithful and true, by the way, why is Jesus riding on a white horse because Y represents victory you can go back into history. All the emperors, the times of the Romans. All the conquerors rode on white horses. So this is symbolic symbol here for us in heaven open up a heaven opens remember in Revelation chapter 4 verses 1 to 3 at the time of the rapture. Heaven opens but Jesus doesn't come out a heaven he receives us into heaven in Revelation chapter 19 in verse 11, which is at the end of the book of Revelation the Angels and mounts the second coming of Jesus and the Bible says I saw heaven standing open there before me was a white horse, whose rider is faithful and true justice he judges and make war.
His eyes like blazing fire, and armies handle many crowns.
It has a name written on him that no one knows but himself. He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the word of God. Armies of heaven were following him also riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean, and out of these mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations.
He will rule them with an iron scepter. He trades the winepress of the fury of God Almighty and on his robe and on his thigh he has this name written king of kings and Lord of lords. All right, I want you not to turn with me to Zechariah get your Bibles and turn with me to Zechariah I put little marker in my Bible so I could get. They quickly as we study God's word to get business exciting when we when we study the word together and from a place like this.
I can hear the sounds, the traffic, I wouldn't be surprised. We hear the cries crying out the prayers of the religion and just a little while. That's this place. This melting pot of people and Jesus is coming again, and this is what the Bible say sunroom in Zechariah chapter 14 we find somewhat of the description of what's going to happen all begin in verse two. I will gather all the nations to Jerusalem to fight against it.
Verse three then the Lord will go out of Jerusalem and he will fight against those nations who come against him as he fights in the day of battle. That's a reference to the battle of Armageddon. I'm going to be talking about that in another message. In fact, I'm going to be speaking to you right there from the battlefields of Armageddon. This full on that day his feet will stand on the Mount of olives right they write.
They right next to me as you go through the Kidron Valley and up onto the Mount of olives on that day his feet will stand on the Mount of olives east of Jerusalem and the Mount of olives will be split in two from East to waste, forming a great valley with half of the mountain moving north and half of the mountain moving south verse six on that day there will be no light. Note: it will be a unique day without daytime or nighttime a day known to the Lord and when evening comes, they will be like, and on that day living water will flow out from Jerusalem half will go to the east and see and half to the Western Sea, the big C is going to come back to life again and everything is going to be trying and we know that so here's what I want to speak to you about for just a few moments as we hear the bells ringing in the churches in the background.
This melting pot. This place, folks. I wish you could feel the vibe I told those that were with me just a little while ago that there is a deep kind of spiritual emotion in my heart I want to tell you that as I stand here in a place that very few people like me are able to come really in many ways just a miracle that we even were given permits to be able to come and stand right here at the base of the Golden gate Bridge right at the base of this place. This gate that means so much this place that will be opened only when Jesus lands on the Mount of olives and walks down through the symmetries, the Jewish symmetry and up through the Muslim symmetry where I am and you walk triumphantly through the Golden gate and he will retake his rightful seat. He doesn't need any construction company doesn't need any building material you want have to build another table because he is the temple Christ is the temple and he's coming back to rule and reign for ever and you know when he sets up his headquarters for heaven here. This will be his permanent place because as we got in the moonlight. Ron in Revelation chapter 21. The Bible says I sword, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven and God from the throne said, from now on I'm going to make my dwelling place among men you're listening to Dr. Don Wilton our teacher here on The Encouraging Word and he'll be back in just a moment with more of the second coming of Jesus Christ is not effective.

W online.org PET/CT EW online.org sign up for the daily Encouraging Word about today's message with Dr. Don Wilton so what can we say about the coming of the Lord Jesus when I just want to share a couple of things with you.
First of all I want to remind you that Jesus will come back just as he left this. That's what the Bible tells us in the next chapter 1 that he's going to come back.
Just the same way as he left this earth. How did he leave this earth. Well, the word of God said that he went to the Mount of olives.
Remember what happened how that they came to him right there in the garden of Gethsemane.
I'm pointing it right there in front of me right yeah at the spot, and he has what happened. He went right day in the Mount in the garden of Gethsemane and he prayed, sweating drops of blood, praying father, take this cup from me. Nevertheless, not my will but thine be done and they took him and they dragged him through the Kidron Valley and the guy passes out and then I took him up and the Romans got a hold of him and the Jews scourged him and they took him to Golgotha and they crucified him, and they buried him and he took upon himself the sin of the world, but by the power of God. He was raised on the third day and then he went and he appeared to over 500, and after that he went to the Mount of olives did me right there on the Mount of olives, he was suddenly taken up in the book of acts.
In chapter 1 the Bible says that he was taken up out of the site and those disciples. The man from Galilee was standing there, can you just imagine the consternation of their hearts.
Can you just imagine them looking up wondering where to Jesus who and all of a sudden an angel of the Lord came to them appeared to the and said to the men of Galilee, don't be afraid. Don't worry. Don't be overly concerned because this same Jesus, that you seen taken up into heaven. This same Jesus is going to come back down from heaven, and the book of Zechariah confirms the prophecy of God's servant confirms that he's going to land on the Mount of olives in person bodily and guess what's going to happen.
Folks, we got to be with him. I'm got to be with him, because I've given my life to Christ. I meant to be with him because I'm a child of God. I know you are to and if you haven't given your heart to Jesus why don't you do that today I'm begging you to do that. You seem just a little while. I'm going to explain to you what's gonna happen right here with the Eastern gate and explain to you what the Bible teaches us concerning the fact that this gate is closed. No man will ever open.
It's been closed for over 500 years. By the way what is going to open it up. Only the one who comes in all of these glory, riding on a white horse, King of Kings and Lord of lords. He's coming back is conqueror he's coming back is the one victorious he's coming back is the one who promised that he would come back. So how is he coming well you got it.
He's going to come just as he lift but you know what. He's also going to come back very very suddenly I want to talk to you about that for just a minute very very suddenly what is suddenly mean to you you are you and I've got a thing about Tom Dunkley. By the way, have you ever kinda felt like you got for ever to live well maybe I suppose it just depends on how old you all. Right now I can just see myself going up to one of my grandkids use for five years of age and say you know how much time you got left on this earth but look at me wouldn't even understand the Christian you know not discovered the older I get I think one of the things that I've discovered the old Rob get is that I'm not quite so sure how much time that I've got left. The word suddenly begins to take on a new meaning sometimes it's something that I don't really like to think you not even had some of my close friends die suddenly and unexpectedly, you know that's what Jesus is trying to tell us to listen, I'm going to come back suddenly. You know how Jesus left this earth. I want you to just take a little walk with these disciples not remember that he rose from the dead and then he appeared to over 500 of his people. He was trying to show them by the way, amongst many other things. What you and I gonna look like. Often we die by the whites a different subject and you wanted what you gonna look black in heaven well just toss the question. You know Paul writing to the church in Corinth in first Corinthians chapter 15 told us about it. He said if you want to know what you going to look like off to you.look to the man from heaven, the one who came from heaven new guy from heaven. Jesus did that right over my shoulder.
Yet in that direction.
If we were to just keep looking back, there you'd end up in Bethlehem that place. We Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea.
What a grand celebration we have at Christmas time. As we celebrate the Christ child and the Bible tells us very clearly that Jesus is going to come back suddenly you see those disciples. They walked with him on this journey. He appeared to them. Off tree rose from the dead tried to show them. He talked to them walk with them. With them, by the way he is good news. Even had breakfast with them right there on the shores of the Sea of Galilee and that great.
I think God is giving us a picture of what we look clocking out resurrected bodies because Paul said he said as in Adam all die, but in Christ we might live. We can have resurrected bodies.
We get to be raised with Christ, to walk in newness of life. I mean that's just an amazing thing and so often he appeared to them on the road to a myosin offer you.
There at the Sea of Galilee. And he disappeared and he appeared and he disappeared. They went with him right there on the Mount of olives, and as they were talking with them. They had no idea and suddenly Jesus was taken up from them into heaven. Angel cities going to come back the same way house he coming back. He's coming back just as he left.
He's coming back suddenly, I want to say something to you before I begin to really unpack this the meat of the second coming because I want to share with you some great truths about exactly what happens when Jesus lands on the Mount of olives.
What I want to talk to you about for just a minute is you.
You might say to me will pasta Don. Why would you want to talk about me because my friend you need to know that you can stand where I'm standing. So I'm just going to get to the end of the story when Jesus lands on the Mount of olives marches down into the Kidron Valley crosses over and goes through this Eastgate.
This Golden gate reclaims the Temple Mount. I'm going to be with her. I'm right there.
You know how know that is I've given my heart to Jesus.
That's an encouraging word is not when Jesus comes. I'm going to be with him. I'm going to be with him because he will have taken me to be with himself at the time of the rapture of the church all if I would die prior to the rapture. I will immediately be in his presence because Paul told us.
By the way, he said to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord in that fantastic I love are you going to be present with the Lord.
Yes, you given your life to Christ. Yes, that means you going to be with him. Yes, that means when heaven opens in Revelation chapter 19 to link Jesus act to come riding on a white horse the armies of heaven are going to be there, riding on white horses. That's me that you have you made certain that your life belongs to him. Give your heart to Jesus today trusting as your personal Savior and Lord, and you will have a peace and joy that you and I can never ever ever explain.
I want you to know how much I love you and I'm so looking forward as we begin to unpack the scene credible truth about the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ to give what an exciting start to this wonderful time of studying the second coming of Jesus Christ and understanding how it brings peace and comfort many of us.
