The Jews were slow of heart to believe all that the prophets had spoken concerning the sufferings of their Messiah. We are slow of heart to believe all that they have spoken concerning His glory. Surely the greater reproach is ours, for it ought to be easier to believe that the Son of Man would come "in the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory," than that He would come as the babe of Bethlehem, and the carpenter of Nazareth. The second advent (coming) is a promise to the Church as well as to the Jews.
Among the last words, addressed by our Lord to His perplexed and sorrowing disciples before He accomplished the sacrifice of the cross, were words of comfort.
The return of Jesus Christ, and our gathering together unto Him, is the sure hope of every believer.
Believers are to look for the blessed hope of the church, the time when sleeping saints will be raised, and all saints will be changed. Believers will be caught up to meet the Lord, be like Him, and be rewarded for works done after salvation, for His name's sake.
