The Second Coming - Part 4

There is a lot more about the Second Coming in the Bible than most people realize. Much of this is given to us symbolically. This page of the web-site is a list of words and a phrase that describe the end times. We suggest you download this page and keep it with your Bible so you can refer to it when you study Bible prophesy to get a fuller understanding of what the Bible reveals about the Second Coming. Here is the list:

  1. Bride: the church (Joel 2:16, John 3:29)
  2. Bridegroom: Jesus (Joel 2:16, John 3:29)
  3. Chaff: the ungodly (Psalm 1:4)
  4. Fire: God's judgment which either refines (Malachi 3:2) or destroys. (Genesis 19:24)
  5. Harvest: the end of the world or age (Matthew 13:39)
  6. In that day: the next life when only God is exulted (Isaiah 2:11)
  7. Labor pains (travail): the tribulation before the Second coming. In Mark 13:8 the New American Standard Bible says, "For nation will arise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, there will be earthquakes in various places, there will be famines. These things are merely the beginning of birth pangs."
  8. Reapers: the angels at the end of the world or age (Matthew 13:39)
  9. Rest: the reign of Christ on earth (Hebrews 4:4-9)
  10. Stubble: those devoured by God's judgment. (Exodus 15:7, Joel 2:5)
  11. Threshing: judgment of God at the end times. In Joel 3:14 the word "decision" in Hebrew means threshing."
  12. Trumpet: the Second coming. (1 Thessalonians 4:16) The last trumpet of 1 Corinthians 15:52 is the seventh trumpet of Revelations 11:15-19.
