III.   GLORIOUS EVENT
            Rev. 1: 7 & 8
            Why is Christ required to come???
1)  Requirement of His coming:
            1 – Promises of God
                        Isaiah 9:6,7 ; Daniel 7:13, 14; I Cor. 1:7; I Thess. 2:19; James 5: 7,8
            2 -  Personal words of Jesus
                        Matthew 16:27; Matthew 26:64; John 14:2, 3  “I will come again.”
            3 -  Provision for the church
                        Rev. 3:10
            4 – Penalty for unbelieving nations
                        Matthew 25: 31-34, 41, 46
     (These are Gentiles who refuse to acknowledge Jesus Christ)
            5 – Program for Israel                                                              
                        Romans 11:1,2  “hath God cast away His people?  God forbid!                 
                        Romans 11:25   “until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in”
            6 – Prestige for the Son
                        At His first coming, he was beaten, bloodied, rejected and crucified…. Definitely did not receive the prestige He deserved.
                        Phil. 2:8-11   “Every knee shall bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father.”
            7  -  Positive hope for the believer

            2 – Clearly be seen
                        Rev. 1:7 “every eye shall see Him”
            3 – Cause wailing (mourning)
                        Rev. 1:7  “wail because of Him”
                                                    Jews and Gentiles
                        1) For the Jews, it will be due to their rejection of Him
                                    Zechariah 12:10  -  mourning will lead to genuine repentance
                                    Zechariah 13:1;   Romans 11:26, 27
                        2)  For the Gentiles, it will be due to the retribution that will come from Him.
                        3) Response at His coming
                                                        YES!!!
                                    Revelation 1:7  “even so…… Amen!”
                        4)  Reassurance of His Coming—
                                    Revelation 1:8   “I am the Alpha and Omega
                                    1 -  Christ’s omniscience  
                                    2 -  Christ’s omnipresence
                                                Matt. 28:20 “I am with you always”
                                    3 -  Christ’s omnipotence
                                                Rev. 1:8  “which is---which was---and which is to come”
                                                Matt. 18:18  “All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.”


Nothing will keep Him from coming back-----
YES… EVEN SO COME LORD JESUS.. !!!!
