Jesus' First Coming Born in Obscurity vs. His Prophesied Second Coming - Christmas Special Part 1

Again this year I've planned a special series of Christmas posts for December 2015. (Tweet that!) I hope you enjoy them.

The long-prophesied Messiah, Jesus the Christ, came into the world just over 2,000 years ago. He came quietly, and most the world was unaware of His arrival. (Tweet that!) During His life He made Himself known. And while there were, perhaps, many people in the world at that time who did not hear of Him, through all the centuries since He is still known. He made an impact on this world, changing the eternal destinies of uncountable numbers of men and women, and that work continues today.

While Jesus came once in obscurity, He is coming again with power and great glory! (Tweet that!)

The Bible gives many prophecies about His next coming, His Second Coming. His next coming will be amazingly different than His first! (Tweet that!)

This month of December, leading up to Christmas -- which is the celebration of Jesus' first coming -- we're going to look at 7 comparisons between His first coming and His prophesied second coming which will surely take place... and I believe soon. (Tweet that!)

I hope you enjoy this series! Merry Christmas.

His First Coming

In Jesus' first coming, He was born in obscurity.

"... Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men."  (Philippians 2:5-7, ESV)

His Second Coming

When Jesus comes again, every eye, every human being on earth, will see Him! Here is the Bible prophecy that tells us this:

"Behold, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him, even those who pierced him, and all tribes of the earth will wail on account of him. Even so. Amen." (Revelation 1:7)

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.

Special Announcement: 

I have been posting on this blog three times a week. As you might imagine, that takes a lot of time in researching, writing, and preparing each post. At this time in my writing career, I have a lot of opportunities and projects I'd like to pursue, so I've made the decision to cut the number of posts back to two per week for the month of December until Christmas, allowing me to get more work done in other areas. New posts will appear here Tuesdays and Fridays. Then we'll take a holiday from Christmas to New Year's Day.
