There are many Christians who believe that the second coming of Jesus Christ will be in two phases. First, He will come for believers, both living and dead, in the “rapture” (read 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17).
Then, second, after a period of seven years of tribulation on earth, Christ will return to the earth with His church, the saints who were raptured (Matthew 24:30; 2 Thessalonians 1:7; 1 Peter 1:13; Revelation 1:7). He will be victorious over His enemies and will reign on the earth for 1,000 years (the millennium) with His saints, the church.
To be ready for Jesus’ coming, make sure that He is your Master, that you are His servant involved in serving Him every day, and, live as if you expect His soon coming.
