God has an encouraging word for you and me today to the Bible-based preaching up Dr. Don Wilton about the second coming of Jesus Christ. Anticipation is a remarkable to in our lives. Anticipate birthdays and Christmas and vacations.

But there is a spiritual anticipation about what's going to happen when Jesus comes again. It is a tremendous insight to how we live out today this very open God's word with Dr. Don Wilton in just a moment about this. The second coming of Jesus Christ part two that's on the way we Dr. Don Wilton to remind you we are here for you to pray with you and for you on our phone number 866899 word that 866-899-9673 or now. Today's message with Dr. Don Wilton hello my dear friend I tell you this is just an amazing thing. And for me personally, this is a very deep spiritual thing for me.

I'm just sharing with you personally that you know I've been here to Israel to the holy land. Many times and and love it I love ringing groups all hope that you can come with me.

One day it's a is just a powerful powerful moving spiritual experience and and a lot of fun to. And you know I love being down in the garden of Gethsemane where Jesus prayed and going down the Kidron Valley and falling in the footsteps of the Lord Jesus and just seeing what what what happened in the life of the Lord just so powerful. You know standing here right under the Eastgate caries.

I don't know like I can't explain it to you. You know I'm I would.

You understand the Saddam was lost for words. And I think that the reason is that as we study the issue of the second coming of the Lord Jesus.

This incredible event in which the heavens will open. According to Revelation chapter 19 in verse 11, and Jesus will come down back down to this earth riding a white horse and then all the armies of heaven will be following him and him and Revelation 11 tells us that that on his thigh is written, King of Kings and Lord of lords. This triumphant entry of the King, the Savior of the world right year-round of the Temple Mount to reclaim his throne and by the way, right here at Mount Moriah with the same place where remember Abraham took Isaac and was about to sacrifice his own son. Remember what happened and and and write the at the moment of impact, just before Abraham was in full obedience was going to kill and sacrifice. He's only son Isaac, God stayed his hand and said no there's a better way. It's the only way because without the shedding of blood. They can be no forgiveness of sin for God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish but should have everlasting life and and it's just so incredible that this same Jesus who gave his life for us was raised by the power of God. On the third day, conquering sin and death and the grave appeared to over 500 then ascended from the Mount of olives right here next to me ascended from the Mount of olives went back into heaven and the angel of God said don't you worry about a thing. Men of Galilee, the same Jesus who went up is going to come back down again in Revelation chapter 19 verse 11 is that very moment when we told about the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.

No wonder the Angels in heaven. In Revelation chapter 19 in verse one with the ones who thunderously with great joy sang out and ran out.

Don't read it in Revelation 19. This marvelous rendition of hallelujah praise the Lord Jesus is coming back again and the Bible says that he's going to land on the Mount of olives and then he's going to come down the side of this mountain into the Kidron Valley and then he's going to go through this Eastern gate to your couple of things about the Eastgate all right you ready for this is always have questions about why is this Golden gate, as we called it of the Eastgate shut. Well let me take you to where the soul comes from. So you might want to turn your Bibles to Ezekiel chapter 44 Ezekiel chapter 44 like to just read a few verses to you from Ezekiel chapter 40 for this great prophecy… And the man brought me back to the outer gate of the century, the one facing east and it was shot. The Lord said to me, this gate is to remain shot, it must not be open. No one may enter through it is to remain shot because the Lord, the God of Israel, has entered through the Prince himself is the only one who might sit inside the gateway to eat in the presence of the Lord is to enter by way of the portico of the gateway and go out in exactly the same way. Now this Eastgate Israeli quite interesting.

You know when you when you think about it's an amazing amazing fact that we deal with the Bible tells us some things about the Eastgate.

First of all, I mean just a matter of interest in the Hebrew and amongst the Jewish people and became known as the gate of mercy that there are a lot of historical things your folks. We know about the city of David, and when the temple was belittled and what was he and what was Nokia and you going to hear all kinds of different speculations and thoughts about the Golden gate about the Eastgate about where it was and why it isn't, and who said this and who said that I want you to just be very clear with me right now as we focus our attention on the Lord Jesus Christ. That's what I want you to focus on is the Lord Jesus Christ. You see in the in the prophecy of Ezekiel, 3 Things Really Take Pl. and and I don't have time to get all the details here so just stick with me for just a little bit arrived. First of all, back in Ezekiel chapter 10. The Bible talks about the glory of the Lord leaving the temple leaving the temple. The Bible also tells us in Ezekiel chapter 11, that the glory of the Lord, not any left the temple, but the glory of the Lord took up residence. Guess way on the Mount of olives.

Then he Ezekiel chapter 40 full talks about the glory of the Lord returning to the temple I watch this, the glory of the Lord is in the temple, the glory of the Lord leaves the temple mount of olives, Jesus goes to heaven. Jesus returns comes back, according the prophecy of Ezekiel walks through this gate that only he has the authority of God to open any re-claims the throne of God.

The temple mount this Mount Moriah. This place where God demonstrated to us that no man, not even Isaac. Not even the absolute obedience of Abraham could ever take the place of the righteous son of the living God. That's why my friends in the garden of Gethsemane right here Jesus began to sweat drops of blood.

He said father remove this cup from me. Remove the cup of my suffering. Nevertheless, not my will but thine be done because he's obedience was perfect. He's sacrifice was perfect, and the fact that you are not.

When we give our hearts and lives to Jesus Christ. We all made perfect him him he becomes us. We become him.

He lives in us. We live in him, the Spirit of God dwells in us and at the time of the rapture of the church. If we have not already died and been taken up into his presence. The Bible says we will be caught up to meet him in the air.

I'll be talking about that. That's a great subject. I've already spoken to many times on the subject will go over it again and again and again and again. And so Jesus comes back again. So what we learn about, one that Jesus will come back just as he left.

That's what the Bible tells us God's angel made the announcement in acts chapter 1 verse 10 and 11. By the way is amazing that it's the Angels who announce the coming of Jesus and angel announced that he would come back and that he would come back just as he left and the Angels amounts. Gary comes heaven opens in Revelation chapter 19 in verse 11.

Not in order to receive Jesus Christ because he's already there but Rada to release him to come back to this earth for the final time to be joined by God the father in Revelation chapter 21 where God from his throne makes the announcement that from now on I will make my dwelling place among men, ladies and gentlemen, I am standing at the headquarters of hip I'm almost speechless and you could be here to this is where Christ the King was set up his headquarters back with more of today's message with Dr. Don Wilton just a moment with Dr. Don Wilton to remind in this unique season of life have more opportunities to pray that we did this time last year ministry, including this phone number 866899 Word 866-899-9673 and keyboard to keep our website TW I think it's into things. There are more people listening than ever and we are grateful to have your listing are also more of us realizing that just the sound of another Christian's voice praying for specifically can be one of the most encouraging things we can be a part of. So we let it connect with you never again is 866-899-WORD 96730 m online valve activities message with Dr. Don Wilton so what's the food then about the second coming of Jesus. We've already heard Jesus will come back to the amount of all you go with me back. For example, the book of Zechariah Zechariah chapter 14 in verse four.

Take a look at get out the word. Just take a look at little listen to the sun reading is not my word.

I didn't say this saved us.

This is his word, by the way just to make something very clear The Encouraging Word it's about this word this inherent word. This is God's infallible word from Genesis to Revelation.

This is God's truth. God said this, I didn't say this, no preacher, it doesn't matter how much we speculate. Listen to what he says.

Zechariah chapter 14 in verse four on that day his feet will stand on the Mount of olives east of Jerusalem on the east of Jerusalem.

I'm here at the Eastgate you are not worshiping right now the Eastgate) is the Kidron Valley ghostwrite up the mountain yeah to the top of the Mount of olives. That's what he says you I do know how to get around this.

On that day his feet will stand on the Mount of olives east of Jerusalem so Jesus is coming back, but he's coming back specifically to the Mount of olives. Let me put it in another way. He's going to land on the Mount of olives.

Where is that right here this is it. It's a real place. This is a real Jesus. He's the only Jesus.

Jesus is alive. I'm beside myself just try to tell you this frame you need to give your life to Christ today.

Don't put it off. You cannot afford to put this off because if you put it off you will be left behind. You will suffer separation from him for ever and forever and forever.

Give your life.

So what does the Bible tell us about he's coming to me just go through to get number one. He will come back just as he left.

Number two. He will come back very suddenly number three he will come back to the Mount of olives, but not before he's going to come back as the living water. He's coming back as the living water this and what Zechariah 14 and verse eight teaches us on that day living water will flow out of Jerusalem half to the east and see and half to the west and see in summer and in winter the Lord will be king over all the whole earth, and on that day there will be one Lord, and his name will be the only name Jesus is coming back as he is by the way, living water. What did Jesus tell us Jesus told us that he was the living water.

Remember what he told that one lady when he was ministering on this earth. Listen, you drink of me you will never thirst again.

I found that to be true they so many people in our world today who are just so desperately in need of quenching this thirst spiritually.

They dried out by parched they just so badly wants something fresh to drink and that's exactly what Jesus would do for them.

He will quench the thirst, he will give to you a freshness and a vitality that you cannot even begin to explain. I want you to give your life to Christ. I'm inviting you to give your life to Christ. This is why, because Jesus is the living water. You know the Bible tells us in the prophecy Mount of olives is going to be split into what is going to flow down to the Eastern Sea. That's the Dead Sea. I been there many times just in that direction. They and boy it's a pretty desolate place. Nothing is alive it's below sea level, but some of you being there.

Like I have with many people you know and you going to the Dead Sea. It's just one whole load of salt.

That's what it is. Nothing could. Nothing can live there.

Everything's dead.

Just like it says you know it's buried beneath the Dead Sea. Sodom and Gomorrah ever wondered why gun read about it there was such sin in Sodom and Gomorrah. God condemned them burn them to the ground, buried them under the Dead Sea. Nothing alive. That's the consequences of seven but Jesus said on the water of life, you know, when Jesus comes back that Ward is going to flow down the Kidron Valley going to come out one of those water using full force going to flow into the Dead Sea. You got it. Everything's going to come back to life because when Jesus gets involved. Everything comes back to life outside of Jesus.

Nothing survives no hope know where to go.

Cannot come back with him. Cannot be with him cannot live with him, folks, I hear it all you hear it all.

Well, he was such a kind person. Well, surely God's gonna laid them into heaven well and finally God needs a trumpet player in heaven. Well, at least this person tried hard. Well, at least this person wins church.

I've heard it all. The Bible says those that believe on his name. All part of his kingdom. Have you trusted him as Savior. You see, that's the thing about the second coming of Jesus. Jesus will come back with all believers.

That's me, that's you, Revelation 1914 tells us that when he arrives when he lands when he put T's feet back on the Mount of olives. I'm going to be with her riding on a white horse you going to be with him were all going to be with her and I love my dad.

Gosh, my dad died. He was right on 90 years of age I'm missing brightly.

I know that you miss your loved ones. God tell you one thing about my dad. He loved the Lord Jesus, guess what I'm going to see him again because he's alive. He took a drink of the living water because dad took a drink of the living water and I took a drink of the living water.

We got to be with Jesus in heaven. And when Jesus comes in heaven opens in Revelation chapter 19 in verse 11. I'm going to be with him you going to be with them. My dad's going to be with them.

Every one of us of those of us who know and love the Lord Jesus Christ are going to be with him.

We got a come back down to this earth, we had to march down together down the Mount of olives through the Kidron Valley. We are going to be the Army that follows him across the Golden gate Bridge that is going to open the Golden gate and we got a march on the Temple Mount Way, Jesus will set up his kingdom once and for all.

Before he marches through the hills of Samaria to the battlefields of Armageddon defeats all the nations once and for role incarcerates the false prophet, and antichrist. And then he's going to sit up his kingdom for a thousand years, and often that he's going to release Satan for just a little while.

He's going to pull fire down from heaven, then he's going to put Satan where he belongs into that fiery pit cold hell for ever and forever and forever and forever.

And then he is going to set up these great white throne in Revelation chapter 20 and verse 15 with all people who said no to Jesus, will be judged for the final time and will be sentenced and he will say, depart from me, you do every iniquity because I never knew you and anyone whose name is not found written in the Lamb's book of life will be cost from his presence.

Revelation 21 and verse one and then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the old heaven and the old earth had parsed away and everything and become brand-new and there was no longer any sea. And I saw the new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven to be among man and a voice from the throne saying, from now on I the Lord your God and making my dwelling place among mankind. There will no longer be any tears, no morning more distractions. I will fly is bothering you that will hurt no more separation, no more Playmobil constellation. No more division goals, droughts, famines, volcanoes, tornadoes, hurricanes, no more starving double forest fires.

No more terrorism. We are to be with Jesus forever.

You see, that's the six point of the second coming of Jesus will come back as King. That's what Zechariah 14 in verse nine tells us it's a very straightforward down the line statement all year. They took him and I maligned him and they scourged him and blasphemed him and spat upon his face. Now there was a time become writing and riding in on donkey all they mocked him, will write no sir. God by his mighty power raised Jesus from the dead. Then he ascended to be seated at the right hand of the father now making intercession for you and for me, you know, one of the great joys of my life is to be with dear Dr. Billy Graham every time I'm with Dr. Billy Graham, I just think of all the words that he saved thousands of people even write your in Jerusalem, a man so blessed by the touch of God man who spent his life serving with such humility. The philosophy from time to time.

Can you tell me about Dr. Billy Ryan well lots of things. One thing that always hear him say gone loves you. Jesus died for you. Once you give your heart to Jesus today what you trust him as your Savior and Lord, why don't you do that because Jesus is coming back again a powerful way to close out today's broadcast many of you are aware of the fact that grandpa was his pastor for the last 25 years and Dr. Donald be quick to say that everything that Dr. Graham said on television everything that he represented to the millions of people. He shared the gospel were true, one-on-one, privately in his home as they begin to grow closer as I had the privilege of being home on Christmas spent some time and sing carols together life-changing experience in a manner that humble stature I've never met someone more humble and yet I guess anyways every reason not to be. But you know he's with Jesus now and end the reality of your life in my life is when we die we can either be with Jesus separated him for eternity. That's what Dr. Graham lived his life about. That's what we The Encouraging Word take moments out of every day in order to share that great truth, I pray you would not let this day pass without taking these next portion. Dr. Don very much to God has spoken to you has you ready to give your heart to Jesus, I love to help you pray this prayer with me and escape Jesus into your heart and life have gone.
