So just what you name well the second coming of Jesus Christ is an exciting thing we as believers look forward to today's message of Jesus coming in the clouds part.
Dr. Wilson helping us not only understand that reality but how it affects us today and how we live our lives wonderful expectancy out of fear or dread. But knowing that there will come an end at some point time the world as we know it ready love to talk with you about it.
You can connect with us right now firstname.lastname@example.org or 866-899-WORD 866-899-WORD 9673. Speak with you. Pray with you to connect with some free resources we love to hear from you now Dr. Don Wilton coming of the Lord Jesus Christ in the clouds. It's an amazing subject and it's amazing to think that Jesus is coming in the clouds we going to be caught up to meet him in the air and we gonna be with the Lord Jesus Christ for ever and for ever and for ever and it's an amazing thing to think that all believers are going to be with him forever. I mean, that's up is a is a precious precious subject. It's an amazing subject and one that I'm so grateful that you and I can be a part of old time, and for all eternity. But here it is.
When Jesus comes in the clouds and we are caught up in the air to be with him all unbelievers are going to be subject to the holy Trinity now friends this is going to be quite a humdinger.
I'm just telling you I think they got to be some of you that have never really heard the so thought about these things. So I guess my first question Fahd Oscar, who is the Trinity, the holy Trinity. I'm sure you'd have the right onset. God the father, God the son God the Holy Spirit. You got try using God. God the father, God the son God the Holy Spirit. How precious is that three and one. What about the unholy Trinity see the marble sages that when the rapture of the church takes place when Jesus comes in the clouds. The unholy Trinity are going to be released on this earth with all unbelievers and all going to be basically free to be able to conduct their dirty business on this earth until the end of the tribulation. I'd like to read to just a few verses here and I'm I'm going to be in second Thessalonians. In chapter 2 now folks, this is going to be a deep passage and I'm going to have to just stop every now and again. And so to go through things and explain a couple of things because this is this is incredible to listen to what God has to say about these things. Yes, 46 second Thessalonians chapter 2 and verse one concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and being gathered to him is the same language referring to the coming of Jesus in the clouds. We all ask you not to become alarmed or easy, unsafe by some prophecy or report to some preacher or someone out there trying to stir up and make up or write a book or whatever it might be saying that the Lord the day of the Lord has already come.
Not so it's not happened. Only God knows that. What's this done.
Did anyone deceive you in any way for the day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the phrase they are the man of lawlessness. The one who has no God. For the law of God, we run that by again as the man of lawlessness. It's the man of God who has no regard for the law of God, the one who, according to the Scriptures will set himself up and you know you are not even here in Jerusalem we can hear all the sounds of different religions in the background. There are so many people claiming to be God. There are so many people trying to teach false doctrines about God. No way better than here in Jerusalem. You can hear the sound you can hear the cries you can hear the prayers you can all around the world. There are different religions vying for one another vying against one another trying so hard to gain the upper hand in the ascendancy trying to convince us that their God is God and what the word of God tells us is that God has revealed to us exactly who he is. Some very grateful for all of the sounds that are around us at the moment because they remind me exactly who he is, for he is not another, then the God and father of our Lord Jesus Christ and so Jesus Christ comes in the clouds takes all believers out of this earth takes them into heaven, and all unbelievers on this earth are now handed over to the man of lawlessness. Now watch the summoner read this for the this is what the Bible says about Antichrist school. He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he seeks himself up in God's temple, proclaiming himself to be God or not say about the man of lawlessness. He is the man who believes has set himself up he has no regard for the law of God, he sits himself up as God and when the rapture of the church takes place the man of lawlessness is going to suddenly appear and he's going to declare himself as God in the temple of God and he's going to tell those who had been left behind.
Don't you worry about a thing. I'm in charge. I'm God you can trust me, you can believe me you can follow me later on in the book of Revelation Bible even says that those who follow him again receive the number 666 on their foreheads or on their hands they going to follow him and they going to give allegiance to him. But there are some incredible things that are going to take place because at the same time as Antichrist is review the Bible is going to tell us that the Holy Spirit is going to be withdrawn from the school. Let me read it verse five. Don't you remember that when I was with you I used to tell you these things, and now you know what is holding him back, so that he may be revealed at the proper time. That's Antichrist for the secret power of lawlessness is already at work, but the one who now holds it back to continue to do so until he is taken out of the way, the spirit of God was holding back the spirit of antichrist is already at work.
In other words, the convicting power of the spirit is too powerful in that God himself is able to overcome the spirit of evil because he's the Concord greater is he that in you.
Then he that's in the world but the Bible says when all believers are taken out. Unbelievers are left behind. The spirit of God is going to be withdrawn from the wound verse eight and then the lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming father why I believe that that is a direct reference to Revelation chapter 20 and to the battle of Armageddon. The Bible tells us in Revelation chapter 19 in verse 11. Following that up to Jesus lands on the Mount of olives, bringing with him the armies of heaven as he goes across the battlefields of Armageddon is that it battle takes place.
The Bible says that the man of lawlessness, Antichrist and the false prophet are going to be taken into captivity and they are going to be put in eternal hell, not the devil, not the third person.
I'm going to get to that in just a moment and the Bible says that the coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders, and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be safe. For this reason God seems them a powerful delusion so they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.
All right let me put the soul together ready there. We got Jesus comes in the clouds at a time that only God knows all believers are taken up into the air to join with all believers who already with all unbelievers now have to be subject to the non-holy Trinity. So who is the unholy Trinity. Forgive the interruption will be back in just a moment to discover that answer of who is the unholy Trinity more important to understand the answer that no matter what unholiness comes against us have victory in Jesus Christ. We looked ahead and read the end of this God lands what would love to talk with you.

All right let me put the soul together.
You ready yet. We got Jesus comes in the clouds at a time that only God knows all believers are taken up into the air to join with all believers who already with all unbelievers now have to be subject to the on holy Trinity.
So who is the unholy Trinity. If the holy Trinity is God the father, God the son God the Holy Spirit. The unholy Trinity is the devil, that old serpent, Satan himself. Number two man of lawlessness. Second Thessalonians chapter 2 Revelation chapter 13, known as the beast will be revealed.
Number three the false prophet. The other beast.
Revelation chapter 13 and verse 11. The word in the Greek text is a loss. The other beast similar in many ways but not the same. The false prophet. Why, what is the soul about 101 of my having to deal with will hear Satan. We know all about Satan's a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour antichrist. The lawless one. Just think of that word.
He's the great political leader. If I had time today. I'd tell you all about it. We can build an entire character of them. We can determine basically where he's going to come from what he's going to look like we can boot his profile, so to speak. He's going to be powerful people, recognizing people know who he is going to be a national hero and he's going to set himself up in the temple he's going to declare himself as God he's going to say peace peace when there is no peace. He's gonna strike a deal with the nation of Israel, just for 3 1/2 years is going to be a false peace. And then there is the false prophet.
The other beast why the false prophet the false prophet is going to perform miracles.
He's going to do the bidding of the lawless one antichrist and of Satan. Here's the reason why the false prophet is very important function you need to listen to this really carefree when we talk about the coming of Jesus. It is one thing for you and for me to send but it's an entirely other matter for you and me to send and then be blessed in our sin by prophet by a member of the clergy by the church people all around the world today are looking for means whereby they can justify they sin people are trying to create churches and flocked to churches and hang around people and listen to people who become extremely popular when they watered down sin. Someone said to me one time a week theology always leads to a weak lifestyle a week. Theology gives you permission to live any way you want to and if you can get a preacher or a clergyman or a bishop or someone who's in the ranks of the religious elite to justify to say to you that it's okay to do what you're doing and to set themselves up higher than the law of God, you've got it made, and most people today who sin that are able to cite my church says it's all right are people who have found a means at least whereby they can be comfortable in their own sin, you know where I'm going, don't you only God makes the determination concerning sin and of unrighteousness and only God has provided the means whereby you and I can never be forgiven of our so when we talk about this. That's why want you to give your life to Christ. That's why invite you to trust Jesus as your Savior and Lord, because God is love and God sent not his son into this world to condemn the world, but that the world through him might believe and might be saved. So what does this all mean that in the coming of Jesus in the clouds. Let's just review it to little bit means that Jesus is coming in the clouds in the air.
It means that all believers are going to be with him.
What believers those who already with them and those who are alive at the time of his coming that will go to join all those who already with them with Jesus up in the air, but it means 30 that all unbelievers who are left behind will be subject to the unholy trend to you ready for point number four is a tough one.
Starting in Revelation chapter 5 in verse one Bible tells us that judgment will be handed down from heaven, so watch my Bible.
If you can just imagine for just a minute that everything above here is heaven. Everything below here is earth at the time of the rapture. Everything in heaven, which is God on his throne, the Lord Jesus Christ and all believers. God will hand out judgment to be carried out on all those were under the control of the unholy Trinity was still living on this earth and starting in Revelation chapter 5 and all the way through Revelation chapter 19 in verse one we have three judgments. There are seven seal judgments seven trumpet judgments and seven bowl judgments, beginning right there in chapter 5 in verse one. There is an incredible picture read it for yourself and the picture is of God sitting on his throne in heaven and he's holding in his right hand. The title deed of the earth where all these people have been left behind because he is creator. He made the heavens and the earth without him was not anything made that was made and he's holding the title deed, the Angels getting to a state of panic. I mean, they start running around squawking carrying on because nobody is qualified to take that title deed and open the seal's that close that title deed that contain the authority of God over the earth and all of a sudden there's this heavenly course. The announcement is made, behold the Lamb of God, yes. He's the one that takes away the sin of the world, the one who was dragged up into the house of Caiaphas and thrown into a one upon whom they placed a Roman road, a crown of thorns on his head, the one that they placed on Calvary's tree at Golgotha, the one that they killed the son of man, he took upon himself the sin of the world, but by the power of God was raised from the grave and now is seated at the right hand of the father. Yes, this is the one.
This is the one he has paid the price. He has the authority of God. He's the sacrifice he is the propitiation for our sin he is the reason he is the way the truth and the life no man can come to the father but by him. And so Jesus the Christ, the Lamb of God comes and takes the authority of God by the authority of God and begins to open low seal judgments and you can read about the one to 34567 seal judgments and they increase in intensity when they are through other events take place and we get into the trumpet judgments 123-4567 trumpet judgments intermingled with all the catastrophes intensifying in intensity followed finally by this seven bowl judgments 123-4567 cataclysmic judgments meted out on the earth is the righteous indignation and anger, and the Roth of God is poured out against the unrighteousness of mankind upon this earth. And then we get to chapter 19 C. That's the first point about the coming of Jesus in the clouds, the Angels will announce Jesus second coming here it is folks I tell you this is the base part man I can't stop smiling when I get your I like talking about the judgments I'm going to be perfectly honest with you I mean I just it is just I do I teacher we go to God I'm not gonna void it. I don't have anything to say, accepting God's word tells us you read the full barter your against God. Nobody can serve two masters.
That's why I'm inviting you to give your life to Christ right from here right in Jerusalem, the headquarters of God's heaven forever. I'm inviting you to give your life to Christ. It's his invitation and the spirit of God will save you. He will do it and the reason I do this with such joy is because the Angels will announce the second coming of Jesus.
Chapter 19 in verse one might pray That this cacophony of praise and glory.
All you remember what we said way back then when we first began to study this. The three comings of Jesus.
I wonder if you can remember what they are coming. Number one when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea coming number two when Jesus comes in the clouds and all believers who are alive and remain will be caught up in the air coming number three announcement Revelation 19 verse one and the actual coming of Jesus to land on the Mount of olives in person bodily physically, personally, for you and me fulfilling his plan for the ages, carrying out his promise that I will come back and receive you on the myself, that's right there in Revelation 19 in verse 11.
Yes, my closing word for you today. You know what Jesus said in John's Gospel, he said, in my father's house there are many mansions.
That's why please don't let your heart be troubled you believe in God believe also in me. That's why I can tell you about in my father's house there are many mansions and if it were not so Jesus said do you not suppose that I would've told you so. I told you I am going to prepare a place for you and if I go and prepare a place for you, ready are you ready I will come again and I will receive you unto myself that where I am. They ye may be also that amazing. Have you given your heart to Jesus. Have you trusted him as your Savior and Lord Racha from God's capital city from Jerusalem, Jerusalem, Jerusha the city of God, I invite you to say yes to this. Jesus he loves you so much. Jesus died for you on the cross. You can trust him as your Savior and Lord. Won't you join me in looking forward to being caught up all to be taken into heaven by the angels of God want you join with me, let's sit around the feast table of the kingdom forever and forever. So shall we ever be with the Lord. Yes, Jesus is coming, he's coming folks. He's coming look for him. Remember what Paul said. So let's encourage one another. What a powerful time studying the word of God. I pray that we've heard not only the insight from Scripture and also the voice of God calling us to him because he loves to get away closing cost Dr. are you ready to give your half of life to the Lord Jesus Christ.
