In our preceding column, we have learned that what will occur when Jesus comes. While we gaze into old and new testament scriptures, we get a foretaste or resemblance of the Second Coming of Christ. In the New Testament second, coming is a reality, and in the old, it’s an over the shadow of what is about to come. New Testament stalwartly imparts the second coming, but in the Old Testament, we get comparable episodes associated with Rapture.
In this article, we will study about the Second Coming of Christ in the Old and New Testament context.
When we study the Old Testament, we get ten foremost matches concerning Rapture.
|I will send you to Pharaoh as leader God told Moses (Exodus 3:10)||In the New Testament, God has sent John the Baptist as a Pathmaker (John 1:15)|
|When they started their Voyage for the assured land, at that time God has given them a new year (Exodus: 12:1)||When we grasp the paradise, we get a new physique (Colossians: 3:4)|
|For the freedom of Israel one lamb without blemish was sacrificed (Exodus 12:5)||, Jesus was the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world (John 1:29)|
|By the blood of Lamb, they got delivered from the bondage of Egypt (Exodus 12:7)||By the Blood of Jesus, iniquities are pardoned, and we get delivered from the bondage of Sin (1 John 1:7) (Mathew 26:27)|
|Feast of Passover was given in which meat of lamb must be eaten (Exodus 12:8)||Lord Supper was given in which similitude of Jesus flesh must be eaten (John 6:52)|
|The meat of the Lamb must be eaten with bitter seeds (Exodus 12:8)||We must live a life with bitterness and troubles to inherit the kingdom of Lord Jesus (John 16:33)|
|The meat of lamb must be eaten with your cloak tucked into your belt, your sandal on your feet and your staff in your hand, eat it in haste (Exodus: 12:11)||We must be zeal and fervor to serve the Lord (Romans: 12:9) (Romans: 11:3)|
|The bread must be unleavened (Exodus 12:15)||Our life must be unleavened, it must not have any leavened of Sin (1 Corinthians 5:7) (Galatians 4:10)|
|The blood of lamb must be sprinkled by the bunch of hyssops (Exodus 12:22)||Our life format must be the living word of God (Psalms 119:105)|
|When Israelites departed for Canaan mass death occurred in Egypt||When holy people will proceed for Heaven mass death will happen in this world|
When we do a comparative study on these subjects, we reach an inference that all these incidents spread light to the second coming of Jesus Christ. We must prepare ourselves for his coming
Most of the people ask this question “Who all will be the part taken in Rapture?” From the Bible, I want to show you 10 Criterion compulsory to be a part in Rapture.
- They must be Born Again (John 3:3)
- They must be baptized (Have taken Water baptism) (Romans 6:2)
- They must be a new creation (2 Corinthians 5:17)
- Heaven must have a claim on them (1 Corinthians 15:23)
- They must fill with the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 4:30)
- Those who worship the Lord in TRUTH AND SPIRIT (Philippians 3:3)
- The one who leads a holy life ( Hebrew 12:14)
- The one who waits for the Lord or Rapture (Hebrew 9:28)
- Those who preach the GOSPEL of Jesus Christ (Acts 1:8)
- Those who live in Christ and die in Christ (1 Thessalonians 4:15)
Those who will grasp these qualities will witness the second coming of Christ and will be taken up to meet the Lord.
ARE YOU REALLY READY TO MEET HIM? IF NOT? BE READY TO MEET THE LORD.
