Anticipating Christ's Appearing - Nathan Rages
Christ's "Appearing" is one of the themes of 1John 2:28-3:3, which we explore with these four questions:
1. General question: What is it?
Acts 1:9-11, Matt. 24:30-31, 25:31-32, 1Thess. 4:16-18, 2Thess. 1:7-10
2. Sobering question: What will you feel when it occurs?
Confidence OR shrinking away in shame (v28).
3. Spectacular question: What will happen to believers at that time?
See Jesus just as He is ⇒ Become like Him (v2).
4. Searching question: What does this motivate you to do now?
Purifying yourself, just as He is pure (v3).
