I.C.E. = isagogics, categorical, and exegesis, analogy, I have decided to teach the Doctrine of the Second Advent on a point by point principle.

The Doctrine of the Second Advent.

Point 1 – The Word Advent means The Coming or the Arrival of Something Extremely Vital or Important.

Point 2. The Distinction Between the Rapture and the Second Advent.

Point 3. The Analogies to the Second Advent.

Point 4. The Second Advent and the War of Armageddon.

Armageddon = when Jesus Christ comes back to slaughter the anti-Semitic armies, as taught in EXO 14:14; JOS 5:13-6:2;ISA 37:36; EZE 38:16.

EXO 14:14 = the analogy of what the Jews will experience as a protector from TLJC, “The Lord will fight for you while you keep silent.”

Russia will come with many Arab nations and also nations from Africa to attack the Jewish people in the greatest manifestation of anti-Semitism ever known to mankind.

Our Lord breaks His own record at the Second Advent or Coming according to ISA 34:5-6; ISA 63:1-6, where he kills more and more of the enemies of Israel than ever before.

ISA 37:36 Then the angel of the Lord went out, and struck 185,000 in the camp of the Assyrians; and when men arose early in the morning, behold, all of these were dead.

Point 5. deals with The Second Advent and Operation Footstool.

He will defeat Satan one more time at the end of human history but the fallen angels will not be there then.

PSA 110:1 The Lord says to my Lord: “Sit at My right hand, Until I make Thine enemies a footstool for Thy feet.”

During the Tribulation Period the royal family is being prepared in heaven where the bride receives a body like Christ’s, PHI 3:21; 1TH 5:23.

Then the bride returns with Christ as a part of operation footstool,
1TH 3:13; REV 19:6-8.

Satan is locked up for 1000 years, REV 20:1-3.

There is the triumphal procession of Christ, ZEC 13:2 cf COL 2:15;
1CO 15:24-25.

ZEC 13:2 “And it will come about in that day,” declares the Lord of hosts, “that I will cut off the names of the idols from the land, and they will no longer be remembered; and I will also remove the prophets and the unclean spirit

COL 2:15 When He had disarmed the rulers and authorities, He made a public display of them, having triumphed over them through Him.

It is quoted four times in the New Testament under a rebuttal concept; i.e., to settle a Jewish controversy regarding Christ as the Messiah to Israel and the dispute about the hypostatic union.

MAT 22:41-46, when questioned by the Pharisees about the sonship of Jesus Christ, our Lord quotes this passage, saying how could David call his son “my Lord.”

In MAR 12:35-37 is quoted by Jesus when He was in the temple answering a dispute with the scribes.

In LUK 20:41-44, PSA 110:1 is quoted by Jesus when he was questioned by the Sadducees (LUK 20:27).

Iin ACT 2:24-36 which is Peter’s famous message on resurrection on the day of Pentecost he quoted PSA 110:1.
And finally it is quoted in HEB 1:13; HEB 10:13.

HEB 1:13 But to which of the angels has He ever said, “Sit at My right hand, Until I make Thine enemies A footstool for Thy feet”?

HEB 10:12-13, but He, having offered one sacrifice for sins for all time, sat down at the right hand of God, waiting from that time onward until His enemies be made a footstool for His feet.

The resurrection of the humanity of Christ is the climax to the dispensation of the hypostatic union.

The deity of Christ is omnipresent or every where present, this is why He could say in MAT 28:20 to His disciples, “I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

The humanity of Christ is limited to one spot.
Only the humanity of Christ could sit down; deity does not sit.
