For Jesus' First Coming the Inn Was Closed, His Second Coming Heaven Will Open - Christmas Special Part 4

When Jesus came the first time, the doors of the local hotel, the inn, were closed shut. (Tweet that!)

When Jesus comes the next time, in the not-too-distant future, the doors of heaven itself will be opened! (Tweet that!)

Here is where the Bible tells us this:

His First Coming

In those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. This was the first registration when Quirinius was governor of Syria. And all went to be registered, each to his own town. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the town of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be registered with Mary, his betrothed, who was with child. And while they were there, the time came for her to give birth. And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.  (Luke 2:1-7)

His Second Coming

After this I [John] looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven! And the first voice, which I had heard speaking to me like a trumpet, said, "Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this." At once I was in the Spirit, and behold, a throne stood in heaven, with one seated on the throne. (Revelation 4:1-3)

I wish to acknowledge: The first 6 of this series of 7 blog posts was inspired by the chart "The First and Second Comings of Christ" on page 198 of the book Agents of the Apocalypse by Dr. David Jeremiah.
