Last Things

We believe in the imminent return of Christ to raise the bodies of the departed saints and to translate His church, followed by a seven year period of tribulation upon all  the earth, after which He shall again return with His saints to establish the promised Davidic kingdom.  He shall reign for a thousand years; peace and righteousness will cover the earth; Satan will be bound; and Israel shall be established in her own land; following which Satan will lead a rebellion against Christ, only to be forever banished to the lake of fire.  The wicked dead shall be raised for the Great White Throne Judgment and condemned to everlasting conscious punishment in Hell. The righteous shall enjoy eternal conscious blessedness with the Lord.  I Peter 4:7; Acts 1:11; I Thessalonians 4:13-18; Acts 24:15; Matthew 24:31-46; Revelation 22:11.
