THE MOMENT WE HAVE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR (35 of 39)
THE KING IS COMING
Dr. James Merritt
REVELATION 19:11-21

INTRODUCTION

1. THE DAY IS COMING WHEN THE DRAMA OF LIFE AS WE KNOW
IT IS GOING TO COME TO AN END. THE CURTAINS OF TIME
ARE GOING TO BE DRAWN BACK AND OUT WILL STEP ON CENTER
STAGE OF THE UNIVERSE, THE LORD JESUS CHRIST. BUT HE
WILL NOT COME AS HE DID THE FIRST TIME.

2. THE FIRST TIME HE CAME TO REDEEM, BUT THIS TIME HE
COMES TO RULE.

THE FIRST TIME HE CAME AS A SUFFERING SERVANT,
BUT THIS TIME HE COMES AS A SUPREME SOVEREIGN.

THE FIRST TIME HE WAS PLACED IN A MANGER, BUT
THIS TIME HE IS PROCLAIMED AS THE MASTER.

THE FIRST TIME HIS DEITY WAS DENIED, BUT THIS

BUT THIS TIME HE WILL BE CROWNED AS THE TRUE KING.

BUT THIS TIME SATAN IS A DEFEATED FOE.

THE FIRST TIME HE CAME TO PROCLAIM HIS KINGDOM,
BUT THIS TIME HE COMES TO CLAIM HIS KINGDOM.

1. "THEN I SAW HEAVEN OPENED, AND BEHOLD, A WHITE
HORSE." (V. 11A) THIS IS NOT A FIGMENT OF JOHN'S
IMAGINATION. THIS IS NOT JUST SOMETHING HE DREAMED. HE
WANTS US TO KNOW IT WAS SOMETHING HE "SAW." IT IS ALSO
SOMETHING HE WANTS US TO SEE BECAUSE HE ADDS "BEHOLD."
THIS IS SOMETHING HE DOES NOT WANT ANYONE TO MISS -
THE RETURN OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.

2. THE SECOND COMING OF JESUS IS THE THEME OF THE BOOK
OF THE REVELATION FROM ITS BEGINNING TO ITS ENDING.
JOHN, IN SIMILAR WORDS, SAID IN CHAPTER 1:7, "BEHOLD,
HE IS COMING WITH CLOUDS, AND EVERY EYE WILL SEE HIM,
AND THEY ...
