There are 3 comings of Jesus from heaven to the earth. These are the 3 times when Jesus comes from heaven to reveal Himself physically to humanity on the earth.
Jesus has been even before the creation of all things.
Col 1:16-17: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him. And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.
In early times, Jesus was revealing Himself to humanity in form of a shadow but not the real person.
The manna which Israelites ate in the wilderness was a shadow revealing Jesus.
John 6:48-51: I am that bread of life. Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead. This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die. I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eats of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.
The lamb without a blemish was a shadow revealing Jesus.
Ex 12:5: Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year
1Pe:1:19: But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot
In so many ways did Jesus reveal himself in form of a shadow but there are 3 times when Jesus reveals Himself physically to humanity not as a shadow but the person Jesus.
The 3 comings of Jesus from heaven to the earth
The 3 times when Jesus reveals Himself physically to humanity not as a shadow but the person Jesus are;
Incarnation is embodiment. It is where God became flesh.
Remember that God is a spirit.
John 4:24: God is a Spirit
The first coming of Jesus, revealing Himself physically to humanity is when the word became flesh and dwelt with man.
John 1:1, 14: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
This is when the Holy Spirit came upon Mary and the power of the Highest overshadowed her and she conceived a child in her womb.
Lk 1:35: and the angel answered and said unto her, the Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.
Lk 1:31: And, behold, you shall conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shall call his name JESUS
And God embodied Himself becoming a man and dwelt with man on the earth.
Mt 1:23: Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.
‘God with us’ means God dwelling with man as John 1:14 says, ‘and the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us’.
Jesus revealed Himself physically to humanity on earth, becoming a man and dwelling with man until His death on the cross, resurrection and ascended back to heaven.
The second coming of Jesus Christ into the world will be to rupture the church.
1Thess 4:15-17: For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first. Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
3. Armageddon battle
The third coming of Jesus Christ to the world will be straight to Armageddon battle, to judge the world and save entire Israel.
Rev 19:11-12: And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
Rev 19:13-14: And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
Rev 19:15-16: And out of his mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he has on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
Rev 19:17-18: And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God. That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.
Rev 19:19-21: And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshiped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. And the remnants were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.
And these are the 3 comings of Jesus Christ from heaven to the earth.
In the first coming, the world saw Jesus physically and He dwelt with man.
In His last coming to Armageddon battle and to save Israel, He will appear physically on the east as revealed to me in Armageddon battle full picture and the entire world will see Him.
But in the second coming of Jesus Christ to rupture the church, the world will not see Him physically but only the church. Why?
Because He will not come down and appeared to the world but He will stand in the clouds as revealed in vision of the rupture to me and confirmed by Apostle Paul,
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord (1Thess 4:17).
We, the church, will meet Jesus Christ in the air, in the clouds.
Repent you, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand
Rupture is Biblical and real (next).
