Let’s open our Bibles to Luke chapter 21…Luke chapter 21. This, of course, is the chapter in which Luke records our Lord’s instruction regarding His return. This is Jesus own teaching on His Second Coming, the great culmination of human history, the end of the age, the return of Christ in glory to judge the ungodly and to establish His glorious Kingdom on earth for a thousand years after which this entire universe as we know it is destroyed and replaced by the new heavens and the new earth, the eternal dwelling place of the holy and those made righteous in Christ.
The Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ, of course, is the next great event in the work of Christ. He is currently in heaven, seated at the right hand of the Father, reigning over His spiritual Kingdom of those who belong to Him through faith in the gospel. He is their great High Priest. Whoever lives to make intercession for them, He secures them unto eternal glory, He hears and answers their prayers and gives them all things consistent with His will and His promise. But He is coming back.
