The Time of His Coming - the Signs
Do you know when Christ will return? Predictions seem to take place every year. But what are the biblical signs of the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ? Does Scripture even allow us the opportunity of discerning precisely when He will return again? In this sermon, Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones answers these questions and more, contending that it is useless for Christians to debate the exact date and time of His coming since Jesus promised that only God the Father knew. The Doctor takes the listener through a helpful history of these questions that begins with the apostles since many have argued that they expected Jesus to return again in their lifetime. In addition to this view of the apostles, Lloyd-Jones also gives a brief overview of several other alternate stances on this subject. According to Scripture, the Doctor teaches, there are two signs that precede the second coming of Christ— the calling of the Gentiles and the gathering in of the fullness of Israel. He skillfully explains from a biblical standpoint what these mean, providing the listener with clarity that is often missing when studying this topic. This is a helpful and fascinating sermon for anyone currently confused about how to interpret the biblical prophecies regarding the Lord’s Second Coming!
