THE RETURN OF THE LORD JESUS
Now I said to you last week that there are two phases of the
second coming of our Lord. One is the rapture, when the Lord Jesus

Now let me read that verse to you and we will talk about the time on
the earth after saved people have been caught up to meet the Lord. Here
is what the Lord Jesus says to the church of Philadelphia. Now the
church of Philadelphia represents the church of true believers.
