If you notice at the top of your bulletin we've put Hebrews chapter 9 vs. 26 and 28 m read that the prices appeared once for all of the elderly ages to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself and justice is appointed for men to die once and after that the judgment, so Christ, having been offered once for all to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin, but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him what I wanted this morning is addressed the topic of the Lord's supper, and the return of Christ in the application. There before we partake of the table this morning. God entered into human history we know as Jesus of Nazareth, primarily for the purpose of dying for. Send to those who trust in him might have eternal life through his finish perfected work is coming a second time in human history. It is not to atone for sin, but to complete and perfect our deliverance from our sin and this morning I was to see the significance of his second coming in this relationship to the Lord supper that we observed. Grace Bible Church, we celebrate each and every week. Well, when Jesus came the first time it was it was not his purpose to divide. He condemned the saving reconciler told from the word, but division was inevitable that we've read in Matthew chapter 10 and Jesus that do not think that I have come to bring peace on earth. I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. Prior come to set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law on a man's foes will be those of his own household in his division happens in the current age of which were living wherever Jesus is faithfully preached at the picture of the warning of the final division, which will happen turned and personalized look at this morning about what's going to happen with unbelieving centers at the second coming of Christ appears in second Thessalonians chapter 1 verses 3 to 10. It was perhaps one of the most description of their Scripture of that event and what it will mean for believers and unbelievers and Paul writes this letter to those that were in Thessalonica. Those Christians there who are being persecuted in various ways by unbelievers of the time and encourages undiversified at this affliction is not a sign of God's displeasure anger at them, but as a sign of loving justice, which is contrary to the way we would think it is because of how he refines their faith to make them worthy of becoming of his kingdom and its) verse five. This is an evidence of the righteous judgment of God, that you may be made worthy of of the kingdom of God, for which you are suffering. And in verse six and following. He stirs them that their affliction will be replaced by joyful Ruston. This will happen in Christ's return. He writes their God deems it just to repay with affliction those who afflict you remember there being afflicted persecuted under daily basis. He said in a grand rest with us to those who are afflicted, and when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with his mighty angels in flaming fire inflicting vengeance upon those who do not know God upon those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus and remember the gospel is not only an invitation, but it's also a command to repent and believe is learned by saying they shall suffer the punishment of eternal destruction and exclusion from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his might, in what he comes on that day to be glorified in essays and to be marveled at an all who have believed because our testimony to you, it was believed to hear from this text in holy Scripture, we can see the coming of Christ is going to mean for the unbeliever hampered the believer I think there are three observations of these from this tax reveal the future of the unbeliever at the second coming in appearing of our Lord and first to know that price is going to be revealed from heaven itself with the Angels of his power in a literal reading of their verse seven would be flaming fire. He will be revealed in the picture here that Scripture is painting forces is one of an irresistible army, the Lord of the universe is going to return from this long journey that he's been on to settle accounts with the occupants of his earth, and there will be no escape. There can be no recourse at that time to be known do over, if you will. There's no place to hide it has returned above all, there's no possibility that anyone can withstand the return, the presence in the judgment of our Lord. This is impossible, as Malachi said in chapter 3, who can endure the day risk running who can stand when he appears, because he is like a refiner's fire is coming in flaming fire. The Scripture says, and for the unbeliever. There will be no dissents. Second, the unbeliever will suffer the punishment of eternal destruction verse nine. No comfort there of annihilation was in that some people believe that when you die, you're simply the process of chemicals, electronic impulses and go on within the brain and what you're physically dead their nose awareness of a life hereafter in your simply annihilated in return back to the elements of the universe with regards to the unbeliever will suffer the punishment of eternal everlasting destruction rest verse six is a he will be paid with affliction and just as Jesus warned it would be this ways that in Matthew chapter 25 that those reject or abuse the messengers. The gospel. They will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous will go to eternal life. There's going to be a separation at the time and hell is really the popular doctrine are often preached today we know that Jesus taught preached spoke more about hell and eternal punishment than a he did about having though people would try to ignore it, they can escape the reality of God's trustworthy and accurate word
