The King is Coming...Again!

Matt. 24:27-31; Rev. 19:11-21



One day Napoleon looked over the plains of Megiddo in Israel and remarked that it was “the most natural battlefield of the whole earth.”  That may be true, and it certainly is the location of the Battle of Armageddon, where the end of the world as we know it will culminate.



It will be the greatest battle ever fought, the most decisive victory ever achieved, and the greatest defeat ever suffered.  The armies of the world will converge on this region, on a collision course with one another, but their intent and objective will change when the Lord Jesus appears in the sky.  Instead of contending with each other, the armies of the earth will turn and unite to fight the army of heaven.


Remember, this isn’t the rapture, [beginning of tribulation] but the Revelation [end of tribulation]. 


At the rapture Jesus comes to claim His bride, but at His Second Coming He will condemn the blasphemers, and unbelievers.  At the rapture He comes ‘in the air’, but at His revelation He touches down on earth.  At the rapture the saints go to be with Christ, at the Revelation the saints return to earth with Christ!  The effect of the rapture is the glorification of the saints, but at the Revelation the effect is the consumption of the sinners.


So, at the end of the tribulation...


1.     Jesus is coming back visibly.

Revelation 19:11
And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.

Revelation 1:7
Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.   [modern technology will allow for this!]

What planet is this? [slide of Pacific view of Earth - discuss] 

Acts 1:11
Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.

Matthew 24:27
For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

This is a description of a powerful storm, a very public affair that everyone is aware of and afraid of.  And though His second coming is different from the first coming, they go hand in hand together.  There is no purpose for His incarnation without His coronation eventually taking place.  Why redeem fallen man if you won’t follow thru and be their ruler?!


Ill.—a tired salesman in the 1920s got a second floor hotel room about bedtime, plopped down on the bed, pulled off his shoe and just dropped it on the wood floor w/ a loud thud.  He thought to himself, “That wasn’t very nice, someone may be sleeping below me.”  So he gently removed the other shoe and placed it on the floor.  He crawled into bed and went to sleep.  About midnight a knock came on the door.  He opened the door and there stood a tired looking man w/ dark circles under his eyes who said, “Would you please drop the other shoe?  I’m waiting!”

        The world is groaning, and just waiting for the dropping of the other shoe.  We will finally be able to rest, finally home!  The incarnation took place, and the coronation will take place as well!


Jesus Who came to earth as God in the flesh will return as God in charge, the King of Kings and LORD of Lords.




2.     Jesus is coming back victoriously.

Rev. 19:11-16

His second coming is quite different from His first coming.

1 Timothy 6:15
Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords;

When Jesus was being led away to crucifixion, weeping women lined the pathway, and Jesus looked at them and said, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves.  This is YOUR hour, but MY hour is not yet come.


The first time was for a crucifixion, the second time for a coronation...

Cross / crown – tree / throne – stood before Pilate / Pilate stand before Him – in shame / in splendor – to redeem / to rule and reign – as a servant / as a Sovereign.


  • Notice His victorious nature.

v. 11        “Faithful and True” – [capital letters!] He will always keep His word, His promises.  Refreshing during election season!

        MacArthur left the Philippines in WWII and said what?  [I shall return]…Jesus said the same, and as surely as a man named MacArthur kept his promise, all the more Jesus will!


  • Notice His victorious name.

12                mystery name

13                                        Word of God [Jn. 1:1]

16                King of kings and Lord of lords.


He is the Word, He spoke the world into existence w/ a Word, and will speak these armies into oblivion w/ a Word!

    They come w/ guns, tanks, nukes, but God created all of it [He brought you into the world, and can take you out!]


King of kings and Lord of lords

No earthly ruler is His match…every knee shall bow, all of them!  [imagine Putin, Xi, Trudeau, Biden, and all the others, won’t be able to hide!]


Mystery name—why?  Because none of us can completely comprehend Him!  Man at his best simply cannot approach unto Him [His thoughts above ours / His ways]

We water God down so much today, attempting to bring Him down to our level, when He said, come unto me!


We would die if we saw Him w/ earthly eyes…He has a Name we cannot even comprehend, His Word speaks people into oblivion…so why do we assume to joke about Him in irreverence?


Bodily and visibly / boldly and victoriously

[victorious nature / name]


3.     Jesus is coming back in vengeance.

Matthew 24:28
For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.

At Armageddon hundreds of millions remaining will gather, and there they will die at the Word that comes out of Jesus’ mouth...and Rev. 14:20 says the blood will be as deep as a horse’s bridle in that valley for 200 miles!  Vengeance is HIS, because justice must be done!


v. 17-21   The birds, the beast, and the battle...


The birds:      v. 17-18a

The blood and carnage so incredible it will keep scavenger birds like crows, vultures, ravens, eagles quite busy…they will gorge themselves!

        [quite a contrast to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb in 17:7-9!]

…one is a supper of joy, the other of judgment!


The birds…

The beast:      v. 19-20

        They didn’t even have the privilege of having an audience w/ God at the great white throne, like the rest of the lost!  [Most have it explained to them why they will be eternally judged, and reminded of all they neglected!]


Antichrist and false prophet ‘do not pass go’…and ch. 20:10  shows that they are still there, and still burning! [1k years later…so much for doctrine of annihilation!]

[twin towers burned for over a month, and we tho’t that was big!]


birds, beast…


The battle:     Jesus Christ followed by His saints!

“Can’t I wait in heaven ‘til y’all get back?”

        You won’t have to fight.  Today, generals sit in offices far off the front line [central command], but this is like the days of old, when the King led the way!


Just ONE word!

        Garden of Gethsemane:  There we see the battle of Armageddon in miniature…

Jn. 18, Judas betrays Jesus, and so he is a type of the antichrist.

They come to arrest Jesus and said, which one is Jesus?  He said, I Am.  {what happened?  They fell backwards!}

        At Armageddon, He will speak the word, and the battle will be over!


Which side will you be on?  We’re reading the back of the book, and we can see who wins.  I choose to be on the winning side!


King Jesus is coming again!

Bodily and visibly, Boldly and victoriously, In Battle with a vengeance!
