Coming With All His Saints And Angels



JUDE 14-15
14 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of his saints.
15 To execute judgement upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against them.

These scriptures show that Jesus is coming back with his "saints", but who are "the saints"?
The Saints are the one's who keep All Of God's Ten Commandments And Don't Eat Unclean Things.

Ten Commandments...

Exodus 20:2-17
1 “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods before Me.

2 “You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My Commandments.

3 “You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain.

4 “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it.

5 “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the Lord your God is giving you.

6 “You shall not murder.

7 “You shall not commit adultery.

8 “You shall not steal.

9 “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

10 “You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor's.”

Matthew 24:29-31

29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:

30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

The Other,,,

Some teach that the church will be translated before the tribulation, seven years before Jesus returns to destroy the beast, and that "the saints" with whom he returns will be those resurrected from the earth.

Because the 144,000 Israelites who were still alive after the sixth seal judgement (Revelation 7:1-8), will still need to be raptured or resurrected.

Because the 144,000 are called "the first-fruits to God, and to the Lamb." (Revelation 14:5), and this would not be appropriate if the rapture had occurred prior to the tribulation.

Because many Gentiles (Revelation 7:9) will go through the great tribulation (Revelation 7:13-14), and will need to be raptured or resurrected.

Because many, who may be Jews or Gentiles, will go through the tribulation (Revelation 20:4), and will be resurrected at "the first resurrection" (Revelation 20:5).

Because the angels will gather Jesus' "elect" from the four winds after the tribulation

Matthew 24:29-31; Mark 13:24-27).

Because if "the saints" (Zechariah 14:5;  1 Thessalonians 3:13) referred to people, it would contradict other scriptures which show that Jesus returns with holy angels (#5.3), which are the armies in heaven (#5.2), and not with holy people translated from the earth.

Because the Lamb's wife, which is the church, makes herself ready (Revelation 19:7) after Babylon comes in remembrance before God (Revelation 16:19). This is part of the seventh vial judgement (Revelation 16:17), after Babylon the great is destroyed (Revelation 18:1-8), after the earth mourns its destruction (Revelation 18:9-19), just before Jesus comes again at the end of this pre-millennial age (Revelation 19:11-21), and so after the tribulation.

 No Where...

The scripture ever say that Jesus comes back with men, but rather everywhere it is stated to be angels:

(Matthew 13:39) "the reapers are the angels."

(Matthew 13:41) "in the end of this world ... The son of man shall send forth his angels,"

(Matthew 13:49) "at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,"

(Matthew 24:31) "he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet,"
(Mark 13:27) "And then shall he send his angels,"

(Luke 9:26) "the son of man ... he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father's, and of the holy angels."

(1 Thessalonians 4:16) "the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel,"

(2 Thessalonians 1:7) "the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,".

Yes Indeed...

MARK 13:24-27 (Jesus)
24 But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light,

25 And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken.

26 Then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.

27 And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.

1 Corinthians 15:52

52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

1 Thessalonians 4:16

16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

1 Thessalonians 4:17

17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the LORD.

Revelation 7:9-14

9 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;

10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.

11 And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God,

12 Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.

13 And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?

14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

MARK 13:24-27
24 But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light,

25 And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken.

26 Then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.

27 And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.

Summary...


His return will be like a great shining light 

(Matthew 24:26-29) and preceding His return:
 - There will be disturbances in the heavens, the sun darkened, the moon darkened, falling
 stars, the heavens shaken. (Revelation 6:12-17; 16:1-21)
 - All on the earth shall see it. (Matthew 24:30; Revelation 1:7)

 Jesus Christ returns with His Saints and Angels in a dramatic procession
 - Revelation 19:11-16
 - Much time will be consumed.
 - The earth continues to rotate thus permitting the entire world to see this event.
 - The second coming ends on the Mt. of Olives from where Jesus ascended.
 - As Jesus' feet touch the earth, it cleaves in to and there comes a great valley extending
 from Jerusalem EAST to the Jordan Valley.
 When here, Jesus will first judge the armies deployed in battle.
 - Revelation 19:15-21
 - Jesus gathers Israel and judges it.
 - Then He gathers the Gentiles and judges them. (Matthew 25:31-46)
 - Jesus will then bring in His Kingdom of Righteousness and peace.
 - Satan will then be bound and removed from the earth for a time.
THE SECOND COMING CONTRASTED WITH THE "RAPTURE"
AT THE RAPTURE AT THE SECOND COMING
 - The Saints gather to Jesus - The Lord Jesus Comes in person
 - Jesus comes as the "Morning Star" - Jesus comes as the Son of Righteousness
 - It is the "Day of Christ." - It is the "Day of the Lord"
 - A sign-less event - All the world shall see
 - It is imminent - Prophecy yet to be fulfilled
 - No reference to evil is made - Evil is ended and Satan is bound
 - Israel remains unchanged - All covenants with God are fulfilled
 - The Church is removed from the earth - Saints return with Jesus
 - Nations remain unchanged - All nations judged
 - Creation unchanged - Delivered from bondage of corruption
 - A mystery not before revealed - Prophesied in Old and New Testaments
 - Jesus appears as the Bridegroom - Jesus appears as King and Lord
 - Unseen except by believers - Comes in all majesty and power
 - Believers receive their rewards - All nations judged
