10 Jesus is Coming back: Eternity, Heaven & Hell.

10 Jesus is Coming back: Eternity, Heaven & Hell.

Outline

 

  1. Homecomings
  2. Jesus Christ is Coming Back! (Rev 22:12-13)
    1. This is one of many times that Revelation declares the return of Christ. (Rev 1:7, 14:14, 16:15)
    1. The same thing is taught in many NT passages (Acts 1:11, 1Th 4:16, Jn 14:13)
    1. Why all the repetition? (Rev 22:12-13)
      1. There is hardly a NT book that doesn’t explicitly declare the return of Christ (1Cor 15, 16:22, 2Cor 4:7ff, Gal 1:4, 4:26, 6:9, Eph 1:21, Phil 1:10, 3:13, 3:21, Col 3:4, 1Th 4-5, 2Th1-2, 1Tim 4:8, 6;14, 2Tim 4:8, Tit 1:2, 2:13, Heb 9:28, Jam 5:3, 9, 1Pt 1:3-7, 2Pt 3, 1jn 2:28, 2Jn 8, Jude, Rev)
      1. Why – Because God wants us to keep that in the forefront of our minds. 
        1. motivate us for good,
        1. warn us against evil and
        1. convict us against laziness.
      1. When Christ comes the great reward and eternal punishment occur.
  3. The Punishments of Hell
    1. At the return of Christ, 2 things happen in quick succession:
      1. Satan and his demonic hordes are immediately and utterly destroyed (Rev 20:9b-10, Mt 25:41)
      1. every single person will stand before God to give an account of their life (2Cor 5:10, Rev 20:12-15)
        1. The second thing thrown in is death and hades (Ps 68:20)
        1. Individual people stand before God to give account for the good and evil they have done. (Rev 20:12, Jn 6:29)
  4. The Rewards of Heaven (Rev 21:3, 22:2, 4-5, 15, 21:16-17, Eph 4:24, Gen 3:8)
  5. Go forth and live in the light of Christ’s return!
