For my text I have selected only one scripture which foretells the coming of Christ. There are scores of others. The Assemblies of God recognizes four teachings as the cornerstones of our doctrinal statement;
Salvation, Divine Healing, Holy Spirit Baptism, and the Second Coming of Christ. The erroneous date-settings by a few misguided mystics has caused this doctrine to be pushed to the back burner in recent years, but I believe it is time for us to brush the dust from it and examine it again in the light of recent events.
Text: John 14:1-3
I. The promise of his coming
A. Jesus Himself promised it, (John 14:1-3, Matthew. 26:64)
B. The angels predicted it, (Acts 1:11)
C. The apostles believed it, (James 5:8)
a. John also spoke about this event, (I John 2:28)
b. Paul the apostle certainly believed it, (Hebrews 9:28)
c. Even the demons of Hell know that He is coming! (Matthew 8:29)
d. Not a matter of IF He is coming, it’s just a matter of WHEN!
