Three Men views about the Second Coming of Christ

Among a great variety of topics, religion and Bible are, probably, one of the most interesting one. It has always evoked numerous discussions and debates. The debates were connected with the Bible and its studies. The most vital topics, obviously, are Christ Resurrection and the second coming of Christ. There are quite many points of view for this issue. The main reason of debates is that Bible and its concepts are always interrelated with the scientific points of view. There is great distance between the concepts imposed by science and those brought by religion. In many aspects, they contradict each other or differ in the answers given to historical questions that man has tried to answer from the beginning of history. That is why, the question of the second coming of Christ is always so debatable.

The establishment of scientific debate about the notion of Christ, His first and second comings started in the middle ages when the western world were exposed to translations of Greco-Arabic texts of scientific nature. The medieval Western world rediscovered Greek philosophy and ancient theories about the universe and life that gave their beliefs a new direction. It was also in that middle age period that the great universities of Europe were established and the natural science began to develop significantly. With the development of Theology and Philosophy, new ways of thinking and interpreting the Bible started to appear. People did not just blindly believe the holly writings but they were interpreting them, trying to read between lines, to decipher the codes they were redacted in and this gave new meanings to those writings. New questions appeared about the world and its origins and the search for explanations about all matters became more vivid than ever since the ancient times.

There was always immense contradiction between people and religion. This brings the question of whether religion is a friend or an enemy of people. 

As we know, there are many points of view concerning the concept of the second coming of Christ. Numerous writers, supporters and opponents of holy Bible actively discussed this notion, examining different viewpoints. The present paper deals with the three view about the second coming Christ. The problem concerning the second coming of Christ is very significant question for the Church to move to grips with in this hour of its destiny. In the case if the Church is keep on supposing that Jesus is able to return at any time for an unperfected  Church,  then  it  will  carry on  in  its  spirit  of  indifference instead  of  receiving  a  vision  for  the  magnificent  church  without  spot  or  crumple spoken of in the fifth chapter of Ephesians (.McArthur and Pink, 2006, p. 16).  The second coming of Christ is always confronted with the notion of rapture. The notion concerning the rapture is a part of the doctrine of the renaissance  of  the  dead,  which  is  one  of  the  initial  stones  of  the Christian belief; consequently it is very significant that the accepting of this doctrine be established in minds and hearts of people  It is required before people go on to maturity.

The first opinion deals directly with the statement that the second coming of Christ is connected with the Millennium. As we know from the Bible, 2000 was announced as a year of the Millennium and the second coming was the so-called preview of this millennium. They supposed that Christ came back before thousand years exactly. They did not find anything miraculous in the fact of Christ coming. Some of the preterists consider the second coming of Christ see as the "coming of the Son of Man in magnificence and glory" mainly fulfilled in Christ's death on the cross. They believe the apocalyptic signs are already fulfilled and thought that the second coming is the beginning of the end. “Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.”(Larkin, 2004, p. 24)

One more point of view is the second coming is connected with the beginning of a new life on the Earth. They believed that Christ has appeared in order to set his supremacy on the Earth and teach people to live another life. They supposed Christ coming to be a new start of a life. Christ together with his apostles would be able to make the earth and life better and help to avoid millennium. Therefore, they considered His second coming as a key to salvation. The second coming of Christ is the blessed expectation of the church, the exciting climax of the gospel. Christ’s coming will be truthful, personal, visible, and universal. When Christ returns, the moral dead will be resurrected, and together with the virtuous living will be hyped and taken to heaven, the unrighteous will die. The almost absolute fulfillment of most lines of forecast with the present state of the world, demonstrates that Christ's coming is impending. The time of the event has not been exposed, and as a result, people are encouraged to be always ready for this.

Finally, according to the researches by Dake ( 2000, p. 23), protestants considered the second coming of Christ as the day when Jesus returns in order to judge the world and to set up the kingdom of God al over the world. They considered this day not as a salvation and deliverance from sins, sufferings and lie, but as the day of great justice, when everybody would be judged for his actions and punished. Therefore, according to this point of view, the second coming of Christ was the day of great judgment. They did not want to accept the way of living according to Christ and believed that it was only up to people to decide how to live and which laws to accept.
