"Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe (do) all things whatsoever I (Jesus Christ) have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. 2 Corinthians 7:1 ... dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God."
I am a retired pastor of

The declaration is: First 'Second Coming' happens now. Jesus turns us from iniquities. So, today we may hear his voice. Explanation: The first event of Second Coming is: Jesus Christ has already come. Acts 3:26 God having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities. Matthew 28:20 Jesus Christ tells to teach them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. As God (omnipresent), Jesus Christ is in heaven and on earth. "Hebrews 3:7 Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear his voice, 8 Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness: 9 When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years. 10 Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They do alway err in their heart; and they have not known my ways. 11 So I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.) 12 Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. 13 But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. 14 For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end; 15 While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation." Second Coming of Jesus is here, turning us from our iniquities, To day if ye will hear his voice, Harden not your hearts. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. And Jesus Christ may come anytime before a sinner to give eternal verdict according to, Matthew 24:44-51, 1 Thessalonians 5:2-6, Matthew 25:1-13 & Luke 13:23-25. So, phrases like, in such an hour they think not, as a thief in the night, etc refer to how Jesus Christ will come suddenly and judge them to eternal death as they are committing sin. They will have no future chance for eternal life. You may refer this link (video) for more information: "Second Coming." Thank you.
