Note to the reader
This is a sermon I’ve preached recently in Kenya, Rwanda, and the DRC. It has been well-received, and I hope it will be helpful to you as well.
All Scripture citations are from the New International Version.
It’s a famous line that’s been used in countless book titles. Just fill in the blank:
“Everything you always wanted to know about ______ but were afraid to ask.”
What would you put in that blank? Today, here’s how I’d like to fill it:
“Everything you always wanted to know about the Second Coming, but were afraid to ask.”
In some ways, this is a hard topic to preach since there’s no single “classic passage” that we can turn to. Rather, what we can determine about Christ’s return is scattered in various passages of the New Testament. So even though we’ve chosen one passage (Acts 1:1-11) as our official sermon text, today is really more of a topical sermon. I hope you have your Bible open, since we’ll be looking at a variety of Scripture portions. Together, let’s consider five questions about the Second Coming.
