PROPHECY BOOTCAMP: The Certainty of Christ’s Second Coming, Part 7, from Dr. Tim LaHaye
To help you appreciate the New Testament’s emphasis on the second coming of Christ, we are continuing our quick tour through its 27 books, one book at a time. We have already covered the Gospels, the Book of Acts, and the 13 epistles of Paul. Today, we will begin looking at the other epistles.
Hebrews. This is a magnificent presentation of Christ as the fulfillment of Old Testament types and symbols. One of the promises of our Lord’s return found in this book states, “So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.”
James. This little book, which challenges Christians to show their faith by their works, culminates with a strong appeal relative to the coming of Christ: “Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.”
Peter. Writing to a church that was undergoing the trials of persecution, the apostle Peter challenged the elders to be faithful leaders on the basis of the Lord’s coming: “And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.” Peter’s second epistle contains a lengthy prophecy concerning the rise of scoffers in the days just preceding Christ’s coming. He promised that in spite of theur ridicule, “the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night.”
