34. The Second Coming of Christ
The Second coming of Jesus Christ will be in physical form and will be visible to all in like manner as He was seen ascending up to heavens - Acts 1:9-11; John 14:3. His return will be in two stages: A. Christ's return in the sky - The Saints or Bride of Christ will be raptured to meet Christ in the sky - I Thess. 4:15-17; I Cor. 15:51-52; Matt. 24:40-44; Matt 25:10 B. His return to the earth - He will return to the earth to judge the sinners and the ungodly - Rev. 19:19-21; II Thess. 1:7-10; Jude 1:14-15; Zech. 14:3-4.
35. The Tribulation Period
The time between His coming to receive the brides or saints into heaven and His coming to administer judgments will be the time of Tribulation - Matt 24:21; 22:29; Rev. 9; Rev. 16; Is. 26:20-21; Mark 13:19; Jer. 30:7; Daniel 12:1; Malachi 4:1
36. The millennial Reign (Christ 1,000 years' reign)
After Christ appears upon earth, He would set up His Kingdom with the Holy people for one thousand years - Rev. 20:1-6; Rev. 2:26-27. This one thousand years will be entirely different from any kingdom ever set on earth. The Kingdom is peace all over - Is 65:18-20. There will be no death - Is. 65:18-20. There will be no poverty - Mich. 4:4; Is. 65:21-23; Christ is the ONLY KING in the Kingdom - Dan. 2:44-45; Dan. 7:13,14,22,27.
37. Satan in Prison
At this time - millennium, Satan will be chained - Rev. 20:2-3, and it will be the time of peace and blessing to mankind also - Is. 11:6-9; 65:25; Hosea 2:18; Zech 14:9-20; Is 2:2-4.
38. The Coming Judgements
We believe that there will be three special judgements.
i) The Judgement of the Believers: This would start immediately believers are caught up in the sky, they shall stand before Christ. After this judgment they will descend down with Christ upon the earth - II Cor. 5:10; I Cor. 3:3; 11-15; James 1:12; Rom 2:1
ii) The Judgement of the Nation: This will be the time when Jesus appears upon earth between the millennial reign and final judgement. Acts 17:31; Joel 3:2; Ez. 14:15; Jud. 1:14-15; II Thess 1:7-10; Rom 2:16; Rev. 1:7; Mal. 16:21
iii) The Judgement of the Unbelievers: or the White Throne Judgement : This will happen after Christ's one thousand years reign at the White Throne. - Rev. 20:11-15; II Peter 3:7; Dan. 12:2.
39. New Heaven and New Earth
The Word of God teaches us that after judgement, this wicked world will be removed. God will create a new Heaven and a new earth in which HOLINESS will exist - Matt. 24:35; II Peter 3:12-13; Rev. 21:1-3; Is. 65:17:; 66:22
40. Eternal Life and Eternal Punishment
The Bible teaches us that there is eternal punishment as well as eternal life - Matt. 25:46. The wicked people will be sent to a fiery hell made of sulphur, to be tormented both day and night. The punishment will continue forever and ever - Rev. 14:10-11; Luke. 16:24; Mark 9:43-44.
41. Dedication of Children
We believe that after a child is born on the 8th day, the parent should bring him\her unto the House of the Lord for dedication unto the Lord - 1 Sam. 1:22; Luke. 22:22-24; Matt. 19:13-15.
42. The Lord's Day
We believe that the first day of the week called Sunday is a special day which the believers should separate as the Lord's day during which time are to gather to worship - Acts 20:7; 1Cor. 16:2; Rev. 1:10. The Lord resurrected on the first day of the week - Mark 16:9; Ezek. 31:12-14.
