The Next Time He Comes ...

The next time He comes, He won't have to die for me;
The next time He comes, there won't be a Calvary;
The next time He comes we'll begin eternity. 
The next time He comes, He'll be coming for me!
The Speers
Each Christmas when we are so often reminded of how Christ came to earth the first time, I can't help but think of how much different his Second Coming will be from the First. 
While preparing for a recent Revelation Bible Study, I mentioned just a few of the contrasts an observer might notice.  Are you ready for His Soon Coming?

First Coming
Second Coming
Born in a simple stable; Rode a donkey into town in meekness and lowliness On a white horse with power & glory                                
Few disciples waving palm branches With ten thousands of His saints
Crowned with thorns for a short time To wear a Royal diadem forever
Died in shame on a Roman Cross, falsely accused To reign forever in glory
Foretold in prophecy Also, Foretold in prophecy

  •   Isaiah 9:6  For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 
  •  Behold, he comes with cloud, and every eye will see him, even those who pierced him; and all the peoples of the earth will mourn because of him.  Rev 1:7
