The second advent

Jesus clearly says that there will be a second coming (Matthew 16:27). However, there is still no clear understanding of the Second Coming. You know how, when the Second Coming will happen. Some people believe that the Second Coming occurs when Jesus came into the heart of man (John 14:20) after the descent of the Holy Spirit from heaven (Acts 8:16, 19). But seeing the "principle" is not the same. After the descent of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost (Acts 2:4) many believers experience in itself the presence of Jesus. But if this is the Second Coming, then the Second Coming occurs before two thousand years. But we know that the second coming has not occurred and Christians continue to expect even after the descent of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost.

On the other hand, some people believe that Jesus will return spiritually. Other evidence shows that this will be so. After the resurrection of Jesus, his spirit can occur at any time and it occurs very frequently. However, Christians are still looking forward to the Second Coming. Hence we can understand that what is not spiritual expect the Second Coming. Jesus often met with the spiritual and the Apostle John still says: "... yes, I come quickly" (Revelation 22:20).

                               I. How will Christ return?

A. Conclusions of the Second Coming of Elijah

How will the Second Coming of Christ? To understand this, let us first look at the second coming of Elijah. With the second coming of Elijah God most clearly shows how Christ will return.

Through the prophet Malachi, God promises to resend Elijah before the coming of the Messiah (Mal 4:5). That is why Israel, which at the time were expecting the Messiah actually expect the second coming of Elijah, because he had to come before the Messiah. Since the second coming of Elijah should have a return of up into the sky Elijah, people believed that Elijah will undoubtedly descend from heaven. But Jesus clearly states that John the Baptist, who was born on earth is Elijah (Matt. 11:14, 17:13). The fact that the second coming of Elijah performed by John the Baptist does not mean that Elijah himself was born again as John the Baptist, who was on the ground, as John has the same mission (Luke 1:17). Therefore, although the mission is the same, the personality is different.

Based on what we know about the second coming of Elijah, we can see that at the Second Coming of Christ probably will be born on earth. This makes it clear that while the Second Coming Christ, the Messiah, has the same mission as Jesus outside it may look different (Jn 14:16-17, 16:12, Revelation. 19:12, 2:17).

Lessons from the First Coming

In the Old Testament we find two contradictory prophecies of the coming of the Messiah. In Daniel 7:13 says that the Lord will come in the clouds: "I saw in the night visions, and behold, on the clouds of heaven as if the Son of man came ..." But the prophet Micah prophesied that the Messiah would be born in Bethlehem (5:2 Mic. ). Which of these contradictory prophecies are believed Israel?

Given the influence of both prophets Daniel and Micah on the Israelites and their strong faith in God, understand that they expected the Messiah to come from heaven.

Therefore, even after the resurrection of Jesus vazsnikvat antihristski movements that claim that Jesus could not be the Messiah because he was born in the flesh on earth. That is why the Apostle John warns, "because many deceivers vlyahoha world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh This is a deceiver and an antichrist." (2 Ioan.7, 8).

Some people argue that in Daniel 7:13 is prophesied what would happen during the Second Coming. But the following quotes we can see that the age of the Old Testament should have ended with the coming of Jesus: "For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John was ..." (Matthew 11:13) "as the culmination of the law is Christ to justify every believer. "(Rom. 10:4). Nobody imagined Second Coming of Jesus the Messiah himself while at the end of his mission is not saying he would be back again. That none of Israel in the time of Jesus could not present andwith that prophecy is Danieela 7:13 svarrzano a Second Coming. Rather, they believed that this prophecy refers to the present Coming of the Messiah and were ready to join the subject to compliance with it (in other words, expect the Messiah to come in the clouds).

But why after sending the Messiah, Jesus, God gave the prophecy that the Messiah would come in the flesh? Jesus said: "Nobody ascend to heaven but descended from heaven, the Son of Man, who dwells in heaven" (John 3:13), thus indicating that comes from heaven. But as we know, Jesus was born on earth by his mother Mary. Why he says he has come from heaven?

The word "heaven" is often used in the Bible. In many places it is termed metoforichno great values, holiness and goodness. On this basis, we can interpret the meaning of these words of Jesus: "I was born like all of you, but my origin is different and the purpose of my birth is different. I am blood related to God. "If we understand the word" sky "in this way, the prophecy that Jesus will come in the clouds is not without reason. But in any case it should not be interpreted literally.

Similarly, John the Baptist, who was born into a family of Zacharias in syotvetvstvie providence of God, not just born to live on earth. He has a great mission (Luke 1:15-17, 76). Regardless how John was born, the immediate cause of his birth is God. So John "down from heaven" as is Elijah has the same mission as him.

Second Coming of Christ is through his birth on earth

Examples of the second coming of Elijah and the coming of Jesus, a direct result of the work of God, cause us to seriously reflect on rporochestvata the Second Coming.

In the New Testament not only prophecy, according to which Christ will come as judge among the cloud of the glory of heaven. There is also prophesied that he would come again in the same way as the first time. But this contradicts the prophecy that Christ will come in the clouds. Since Jesus anticipating what will happen during the second coming in Luke 17:24,25 it says, "so shall the Son of man be in his day. But first he must suffer many things and be rejected by this generation. 'If the Lord comes again with glory and honor to the sound of angelic pipes if anyone would dare to reject it and pursue it? Would you chasing him?

Today, many believers and churches look to the sky and waiting for the Lord to come into the clouds. If this happens, there is no reason to be haunted. But if it came to real clouds, but instead came in the flesh, as at the first advent, it becomes clear why Jesus said that the first to suffer before being recognized (Luke 17:24, 25).

Revelation 12:5 says, "And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God and His throne." Man who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron is Lord who comes. In this verse it is said that he would be born of a woman. When the Pharisees want to know the time of the Second Coming, they asked Jesus when the kingdom of God would come, and he says, "the kingdom of God will come noticed ..." (Luke 17:20). Much can contemplate the sky, but in the words of Jesus, the coming of God's kingdom, ie the Second Coming will come of real clouds. In Luke 18:8 Jesus says, "Kazvamvi that will protect them recently. But the Son of man, when he cometh, shall he find faith on the earth? Jesus prophesied that when he comes back he will not find faith on the earth. This means that when you come almost no one has full faith and through it to be saved. What is causing this?

Not all believers on earth have perfect faith, but everywhere there are people who follow the path of true faith. Then why Jesus said, you will not find faith? Besides, who would not recognize God if he Dade a real cloud? Surely she even unbelievers recognize it, and you'll believe it. Is not unbelief is due to someone who will try to stop them believe in God? Surely not. There are always difficulties weaken faith. The words of Jesus, you will not find faith on the earth means that he will come in the same way as the first advent.

When Jesus came two thousand years ago, people had a strong faith. Some models are night and day in the temple and knew by heart the commandments of God and the laws are faithfully tithe and bedding. In this sense they have a strong faith in God, but they had no real faith koyaot help them believe that Jesus is the Messiah sent by God.

In this sense, Jesus did not find faith on the earth! Similarly today, there are millions of good Christians who expect God to show up in the clouds: but if he comes in the same way as before, if you find such faith that will enable Christians to recognize him?

Based on biblical quotations referred to above and the conclusions of God's providence in the course of history, it is clear that the second coming will happen as the First Coming - Messiah would be born in the flesh on earth. Actually it comes as a son.

Seeing the "Principles"

In "Principles of Creation," the purpose for which God created Adam and Eve to be performed through the implementation of the Three Blessings on earth. In other words, Adam and Eve had to improve and become an ideal, perfect personalities and True Parents who put the perfect family home and establish tsatstvo heaven on earth. As representatives of God was to rule over creation with love. But because of the Fall, Adam and Eve did not become True Parents and create a world of evil.

Jesus came as the second Adam (1 Cor. 15:45) and had to make this world a perfect world, designed for creation (Matt. 4:17). Even after God's plan of salvation through the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus three blessings bestowed by God are not yet fulfilled. Therefore Messiah third sinless Adam should come to fulfill God's purpose for creation.

Messiah must be born on earth as a physical being, because he should be a model for the ideal model for man perfected and fulfilled his harakrer First Blessing. It can fulfill this responsibility only if it is born on earth in the flesh. Furthermore, it should create the ideal family, designed by God, and thus become the True Parent who has carried out God's Second Blessing. As a parent, it will sow God's love in the hearts of all who follow him, and you'll help them to improve themselves by giving them a new birth and show them how to fulfill their true purpose in life. As perfect man he will manage the spiritual and physical worlds with perfect love, and God will fulfill the Third Blessing. People will be "transplanted" to it (Rom. 11:17) and believe in him and follow him, will be merged into one with it. So the Lord will show them how to make people able to manage with love all around them and thus fulfill God's Third Blessing. Therefore, the Messiah must be born on earth in the flesh as in the first advent.

The mission of the Jews is not only to accept Jesus, but also to follow him go help him fulfill his mission. Similarly, Christians have mission not only to establish the World Foundation for the Second Coming, but to help the Lord to fulfill his mission when he comes.

The kingdom of heaven on earth, Christ must build, not some imaginary kingdom of heaven. It can not be built through svrahestvstveni miracles, but only if you fulfill your responsibility and solve all a problems in a realistic manner subject to compliance with God's will and direction.

People who do not respond to God's providence can not be saved. Because God is a God of justice and love, He wants all mankind to be saved. God's ideal of creation will be achieved through the improvement of the singular nature of personality. God's plan of salvation does not end with the salvation of a person. Therefore Christ, who at the Second Coming will fully implement God's ideal will be limited to a Christian religion, and will cover all religions and faiths. He will work to establish a world centered on God - a world without tribal, national and racial boundaries.

Importance of clouds

If the Lord should come to earth in the flesh, then what does that come in the clouds? What do clouds symbolize?

The clouds are evaporated is water. No matter how dirty it may be the water when evaporated in the form of clouds, it is purified. In Revelation 17:15 the water symbolizes the wrong person and clouds saints who are raised or received birth. Metaphors that Christ will foyfe cloud means that he will come among the saints prepared by God.

Why did Jesus say that He would come again in the clouds? First, to protect people from fraud antichrists. By his coming had better people to believe that he will come in the clouds. If it was made clear that Christ appeared on earth in the flesh, it would be difficult to prevent confusion caused by tvardenyata many antichrists. But when nastarpi time, God will tell us how the Messiah will come (Am. 3:7).

Secondly, Jesus said this to encourage and assist students in their religious life, filled with many difficulties. Jesus says a few things about the Second Coming, which can not be fully understood. In a revelation 22:20 says: "... yes, I am coming soon." In Matthew 10:23 Jesus says: "... Verily I say unto you, I will not doobhodite cities of Israel, Son dokde Chelovecheskiy come ..." In Matthew 16:28 it says, "Verily I say unto you some standing here who taste of death, dokde they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom. "In John 21" 18-22 he talks like he'll be back in the time of John. In all these quotes Jesus stresses that the Second Coming will be soon (relatively soon compared to its age). But it does not. So why Jesus says he will be back soon? What did he mean by saying this?

Jesus provides the persecution of the Roman Empire. So he had to teach his students, encourage them and give them hope to be able to survive despite Christianity terrible persecution and quickly prepare a global foundation for the Second Coming. The first Christians managed to maintain their enthusiasm and passion because they believed that the second coming of Jesus is inevitable and that it will come in the clouds of heaven with the splendor and glory of God. This faith gives them strength to withstand the pressure and persecution of the Roman Empire, and thus establish the first Christian churches.

                       II. When Christ will come again?

When will Jesus return? In Matthew 24:36 Jesus says: "But of that day and hour no one knows ..." This shows that there is no reason to speculate when Christ will return.

In the same verse in Matthew says that the Father knows, and in Amos 3:7 says that "God does nothing, unless He reveals His secret to His servants - the prophets." So we can understand that God through the prophets certainly people will reveal the onset of the Second Coming of Christ. The course of recovery we can find many examples when God notify what to do. God told Noah and Lot Flood to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah, God reveals to be born when the Messiah at His first coming. God razyruva ba family of John the Baptist (Luke 1:41-45), the wise men from the East (Matthew 2:1-12, Simeon (Luke 2:26-32) and the other when Jesus would be born. Throughout the history of God's providence of God is really more important moment in time when only the Messiah? Vazamozhno Did God not tell people when the Son of God would come to earth to make unexecuted order of creation?

On the other hand, Jeshua says he will come like a thief (Revelation 3:3). Moreover, he says that will come as a thief to those who are light (1 Thess. 5:4-6) and those who remain awake (1 Thess. 5:4-6, Revelation. 3-3 ) It is clear that the faithful who pray always, stay awake and light, God will surely notice the coming of the Lord to prepare for it (Luke 21:34-35).

Because God's plan for recovery reaches its conclusion with the coming of the Messiah, the Messiah is the most valuable fruit in the entire history of God's plan for recovery. Jacob's family began building the foundation (Judaism and Israel) for the arrival of this very important person - the Messiah. As already explained, the people of Israel did not believe in Jesus, so God created the second Israel (Christianity), including believers in Jesus from different races. The model of God's plan that we find in the history of Israel must also present the history of Christianity, that God prepares Israel worldwide. As the story of Israel's first, began with Jacob and the history of the Second Israel (Christianity) began with Jesus must have the same goal - to prepare the conditions for the adoption of the Messiah on earth.

Israel's history and the history of Christianity differ in historical eras, events, geographical areas and cultural traditions. But the position of the central story is God's plan for recovery is passed from one to the other istoirya. The aim of both providential plan is the same - to prepare the foundations for the Messiah.

These stories have already been compared in terms of God's plan for recovery. Based on this comparison, let's look at the time when Christ comes.

The history of Israel from Jacob to Jesus is divided into the following six main periods: the period of slavery in Egypt Judges period, period of the United Kingdom, Divided Kingdom period (North and South); period of exile and return of the Jews and the period Preparing for the Messiah. These six periods comprise a providential age of 1930 years that God wants to complete recovery plan. But since Israel first fails to meet its responsibility to believe in the Messiah, God has no alternative but to extend the Recovery Plan. The time of the Second Coming of Jesus is also divided into six six main periods: the period of persecution in the Roman Empire; period Patriarchal System in Christian churches (the period of the Patriarchs) period of the Christian kingdom Divided Kingdoms period (East and West); period of exile and return of the Pope and the period of preparation for the Second Coming. These six periods also cover 1930 years.

We do not look hopeful in 1930, because it has already passed. Why we have not yet witnessed the Judgement on earth and glorious Second Coming? If the Second Coming must be in the air, then the glory of the Lord should now be spread across the length and breadth of the world. But, as already explained, the Lord will not come true clouds. Second Coming will happen with the birth of the Messiah in the flesh on earth. Then if the Messiah would be born in 1930, exactly? The year can not be specified because often we find a difference of about 10 years in the course of providential history. For example, the period of persecution in the Roman Empire should continue 400 years, but actually it goes to 392, the period of preparation for the Second Coming of the Reformation began in 1517 and ended after 400 years. On this basis, the Second Coming is supposed to happen in 1917, therefore, Jesus must have been born between 1917 and 1930

When Jesus came 2000 years ago, he immediately told that the Messiah and began to judge immediately. In his personal life, has a relatively long period of preparation for which not much is known. Then, during its public mission, he prepares the foundations to fulfill its mission of the Messiah. At the second coming after his birth, God must also undergo a similar training course. Knowing what happened during the execution of God's plan for recovery, we understand that this time is a time of preparation for the advent of the Messiah. The Second Coming of Christ called "Last Days." The "Completeness of history" already explained that these days are the last days (see Chapter IV.). Therefore we can say that our day is the time when Christ will appear.

                       III. Where Christ will come again?

If Christ is to be re-born as a man in the flesh, he must come to a certain place in a certain nation. What is this nation?

In Judea 2000 years ago Jesus said that He would come again. But whether he will return to the people of Israel? In Matthew 21:33-43 the parable of the vineyard, Jesus makes it clear that he would not be back in the land of Israel. In this parable, God is the owner of the vineyard, the vineyard represents God's efforts to realize the ideal of creation, the tenants of the vineyard are the chosen people of Israel, your servants - the prophets, the owner's son is Jesus, and the nation is bearing fruit symbolizes the nation that will accept Lord of the Second Advent. Jesus says he will not return to the people who killed him. He also said that they will take the right to be chosen nation and handed it to another country and another nation that will be fertile ground for the Second Coming.

Then how to understand the biblical quote, which speaks of the coming of the Children of Israel? In Revelation 7:4 states that during the Second Coming 144000 will be "caught" by the tribes of Israel, and marked with a stamp. What does this mean?

Originally the name "Israel" was given to Jacob after defeating the angel of the river Iavok (Gen. 32:28), meaning "a person who has struggled with God". In other words, by "Israel" is meant God's chosen people who overcomes by faith, not the descendants of Jacob. This is revealed in the words of John: "... and think not to say within yourselves: Abraham is our father: for I say unto you, God is able of these stones to raise Chala Abraham." (Matt. 3:9). And St. Paul says in Romans 9:6 the same: "For not all who are of Israel are izraltyani ..."

So who will be the chosen people "Israel" after the crucifixion of Jesus on the cross? These are devoted Christians who believe in the Lord. Romans 11:11 says, "But through their (the Israelites) fall salvation has come to the Gentiles, to excite jealousy in them." It is clear that Israel no longer at the center of God's plan for recovery. Therefore, God will continue His central plan not with the descendants of Abraham, but to Christian believers who have inherited the faith of Abraham. So exactly which country will come Lord?

When a student sewn Jesus will return, he metaphorically otgovyarya him: "where the body is, there will the eagles be gathered together" (Luke 17:37). Jesus did not specifically mention which country will come. But in Revelation 7:2-4 says that an angel would descend from the East, from where the sun rises, and will stamp the foreheads of the 144,000 chosen servants of God. But who is this country?

This is Korea's east side. When a farmer seets a tree, he carefully dig and water the soil to prepare it for the tree. Is it possible God who expects fruit from throughout history, to send the Messiah without preparation? From this perspective, let us consider in more detail the idea that Korea is the country that has to accept the Lord.

First, the country in which the Messiah comes, must be subject to God's heart. Korea is a country prepared by God. Following the fall of the first man and the first woman God suffers deeply because His plan failed. Usually we think that God is a God of glory and nvelichieto and is very far from us. Because of the Fall of Adam and Eve, all the children of God in his heart he feels sorrow of parents who lost their children. He roams the wicked world of Hell to seek and yearn to save their disobedient children. So man, the family and the nation who are fighting against Satan as representatives of God, can not avoid the path of tears and suffering. Could one before and love their parents, who feel the agony of his parents, to live carefree? As experienced deep suffering Messiah of God comes to ease his grief, he can not come among people who is complacent material. Country where the Messiah would be born to be subject to God's heart, and her people - His sons and daughters who survived heart of its parent, so that the country can not avoid the path of suffering.

Both the first and second Israel had to elapse time of suffering and hardship. Since Korea is the country that has to accept the Messiah, she also had to go this way. So in recent history Korea has had to undergo great suffering incredibly. Even during this time of suffering and misery Korea keeps its good traditions sibovna loyalty and devotion. Even when she was on top of its power, Korea has never begun a conflict with another country and not attacked first. God's strategy - to gain victory after being attacked is different from the strategy of Satan, who is always attacking. Korean nation retains its homogeneity, language, traditions and national spirit. For more than 5,000 years, they retain the integrity of their culture despite numerous invasions. This is the history of the world. Even in the worst moments Korean people aspired to prevednost and peace, and specifically educated to follow God. Despite ongoing difficulties, the Korean nation is highly appreciated righteousness and peace and has been specially prepared for the subject of God.

Second, it is essential that Korea is a nation that bears the fruit of many religions. Koreans have a strong tendency to religious life - they honor God and spirituality. Many of the world's great spiritual and ethical teachings such as Buddhism and Kondutsianstvoto flourish in this country and based on these spiritual traditions Korean national culture is very rich. Over the past few centuries Christianity appears and reaches the highest point of development. Religion is deeply combines everyday life in extraordinary harmony. It is hard to find another nation that syotvetstva this description.

Messiah has not come to save only hristiyansktvoto. Although Christians are central nation in God's plan, all people must be children of God, and God himself created and directs all major religions to restore the people of different areas, time periods and circumstances. Therefore, the Messiah who comes to fulfill the ultimate goal of God's plan must simultaneously fulfill the purpose of all other religions. Thus polgodyashtata nation prepared for the Messiah, is the nation in which all major religions thrive.

Thirdly, the nation to which the Messiah comes, must be frontline of the conflict between God and Satan. God told Adam and Eve: "... but of the tree ... not eat of it: for in the day that you eat of it, die anyway." From these words we can understand that the fall is the dividing line between heaven and earth, between life and death, between good and evil. So the Messiah must come to a place where we also confront life and death, good and evil. Then he has to solve the problems of the world lead to the end of providential history.

God's plan to restore the world turn, conquered by Satan, is based on the division of Cain and Abel. Separation of Cain and Abel-type world with the coming of the Messiah is given by communist and democratic world. This is the vertical horizontal development plan that God made in the course of history. Therefore, the Messiah will appear where the two forces - democracy and communism, confront each other, ie where the focus is God's love and Satan's hatred. This line of confrontation is the 38th parallel to Koreyskriya Peninsula. This is the providential significance of the 38th parallel in Korea. Not only is the dividing line between democracy and communism, he is also the front line between God and Satan.

God works to fulfill his will, and Satan to oppose and stop the work of God. So frontline of God becomes frontline and Satan. Of all the efforts of God, Satan, the most strongly opposed to the preparation of the nation, which must accept the Messiah. In God's plan to restore the world's most important is vlvmvnt religion. So God polgotvya, the coming of the Messiah based on the fruits of all religions. As Korea prepares for the Messiah, God encourages razrostranenieto of religion is over Korea, and Satan wants to completely eradicate. Thus, the Korean War, which unfolds in the 38th parallel and led to the division of Korea is not simply caused by civil conflict Celan territorial division. This is a confrontation between democratic and communist bloc. Moreover - between God and Satan. The fact that many nations (16) without being directly affected by the conflict, participate and support the Recovery Plan, a divine significance.

Fourth, the nation to which the Messiah comes, natsonalna should establish a basis for God's recovery plan. In order for Korea to become a nation where the Messiah was born, it must establish a national basis for the separation of Satan, as did Israel and early Christianity. Israel is fa requiring any separation from Satan through the 400 year suffering in Egypt, which represents the satanic world. The second Israel set conditions for separation from Satan by resisting almost four hundred-year persecution in the Roman Empire, which also represents the satanic world. Therefore, the Second Coming to separate from Satan, Korea should also experience suffering at the hands of a nation that is satanic side. Japan is a nation on the satanic side and for 40 years she undergoes Korea diplomatic rights and national sovereignty from 1905 to 1945, when Japan was defeated in World War II. During this period Japanese Korean people totally deprived of his liberty and countless people have been severely persecuted, imprisoned and killed. In early 1910, when Japan annexed Korea, the persecution of Christianity led to the court of the independence movement in Korea, no unparalleled in its ferocity. While subject to compliance with God's plan stasenie worldwide Christianity enjoys freedom Korean people, especially Christians suffer greatly. Thus they make payments on a national level to prepare Korean nation where the Messiah comes.

Fifth, in this country there must be many prophecies concerning the coming of the Messiah. Is it possible for God to send His quietly beloved son? Surely he must show that those people in the world who are spiritually prepared. Surely He told them the good news and will prepare them for the Messiah. Just as the Israelites were aware of the prophecies that the Messiah would come as a king, and save them, and Korean people are expecting the king of justice for 500 years based on the book of prophecies called Chung-Gam-Nock. It is noteworthy that the Korean people are expecting the Messiah before he converted to Christianity and to receive spiritual salvation through faith in Jesus. Many spiritually gifted priests and laity received specific revelations that the Lord of the Second Advent will come to Korea. Many religious people have revealed that Korea will become the center of the salvation of the world.

The fulfillment of God's plan for recovery is directed first towards restoring the individual and then to restore the external conditions of the kingdom of heaven. God works through religion, to restore man and he develops various civilizations, to restore the center of the kingdom of heaven. God seeks to establish the most appropriate cultures and social prerequisites for the Second Coming. Second Coming will bring harmony between religion and science, between the spiritual and material aspects of life between East and West. It will blend in harmony and so will launch a new culture Bogizma. For many years, the Korean peninsula was an unknown part of the eastern world. But Western culture entered the East and finally reaches Korea.

God prepared the Korean people over 5,000 years and brings a strong faith and love. On this basis, Korea adopted Christianity. Iprashtaneto of Christianity in Korea is the last step that God is doing to prepare for the Korean people to accept the Lord of the Second Advent. This makes Korea a major representative of Christianity worldwide. Although Korea is a small country, it constantly plays an important role in modern history seems to stand in the center of the leading international political developments.

The era of Jesus and the modern era in terms of the identity of the time

The era of Jesus and the Second Coming are identical in terms of Providence. So God's plan for the Second Coming centered Christianity is similar to God's plan at the time of Jesus.

First, let's look at these two periods in terms of the central nation in God's providence. According to Jesus, God's plan was to spread providence in Israel from Israel to Rome and from Rome to the rest of the world. Assuming that the Christian religion is central during the Second Coming, and Korea is in the position of Israel, then what country is in the position of the Roman Empire? Today, Rome is the position of the party on the basis of Christianity God prepares a pillar of the world. For more than 200 years God polgotvya America to fulfill the purpose of the Second Coming. Therefore, today the relationship between Korea and America is similar to the relationship between Israel and Rome in the time of Jesus.

Secondly, let's compare Christianity with Judaism today in the time of Jesus. At the time of Jesus' Judaism in Israel was associated with the power of the priests and church rituals. Spiritual life was flawed. Jewish religious leaders forget traditional piety inherited from Avraaam, Jacob, Moses and the prophets. Instead, their relationship with God is only formal and so many times Jesus criticizes their dead faith devoid of works (Matt. 23:1-39).

Christianity Today has to repent for having lost his true self and has become a formality. Compared with fervor faith of the first Christian churches church today has also become too much outside and is far from the original purpose of faith. Many people consider themselves Christians, but in reality life I lead is materially different from the teachings of Jesus.

Just as Jesus put all my efforts to reform the corrupt Judaism, and at the Second Coming, he will mainly reformed Christianity to turn it into a real church, honoring God and vdahovi Christians to practice God's will and teachings of Jesus.

At the time of Jesus, Judaism did not understand the true value of Jesus. Jewish leaders ignore the will of God, reject reformist doctrine preached by Jesus and pursue it. Similarly, during the Second Coming and the new teaching reform activities Court rejected Christ believers who do not want to make efforts to reform Christianity and the church blindly adhere to their traditional power and rituals.

At the time of Jesus, the leaders of Judaism do not accept his word. Word of Messiah was adopted by ordinary Jews, representatives of the common people and from the Gentiles, that the teachings of Christ. So Jesus says with sadness that svatebniya feast he prepared to come and have fun not those who are called, but accidentally called up from the street (Matt. 22:8-10).

People born in the time of Jesus have proeidenchesko important because they had to follow the Messiah and to help fulfill its mission. These are not ordinary people, they have a historical responsibility to live in the most important moment of providential history. Similarly, all people today, especially Christians have a responsibility to follow the Messiah and build world performing God's ideal of creation. The time in which we live today is very important and can not be compared with any other period since the beginning of human history until now.
