The Second Coming Of Jesus Christ

Quote of the Day

Dr. A. J. Gordon was a great preacher of the second coming of Christ. His son and biographer writes, “Advocacy of this doctrine cost him much. It seems to awaken suspicion and lead to estrangement – this great doctrine of hope.” Dr. Gordon himself said, “It is not wanted by a church with millionaire merchants and great universities. But, after all, it was for the assertion of this doctrine that Christ at the last was crucified” (Matthew 26:64). To this day certain churchmen resent the enthusiastic proclamation of it. To declare that our Lord may return at any moment may disturb their grandiose plans and programs.

**********
The Second Coming is not a popular doctrine in the Emerging Church.  Have you ever wondered why?  Because of the exact reasons that Vance Havner alludes to.  How amazing that professing Christians intentionally ignore a prominent doctrine that is our blessed hope, and replete throughout the Word of God.  Even the ancient prophet Enoch mentioned it in Jude 14-15.  Maranatha,  Pastor Steve
