“(Jesus) Got up from supper, took off His garments, and taking a [servant’s] towel, He fastened it around His waist. Then He poured water into the washbasin and began to wash the disciples’ feet and to wipe them with the [servant’s] towel with which He was girded” (John 13:4-5)
One of the purposes of the Second Coming is to invite the Christian Church on earth to the beginning of a newly formed Church called The New Jerusalem
“And I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down from God out of Heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her Husband” (Revelation 21:2)
This does not mean it excludes other religions, faiths, or peoples
It could be compared to a Hollywood movie premiere on the opening night. The actors and participants in the old Christian Church are graciously invited first to partake in this Holy gathering
“Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for it, that He might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the Word, that He might present it to Himself as the glorious church, without spot or wrinkle or any such things, but that it should be holy and without blemish” (Ephesians 5:25-27)
“the washing of water by the Word” is the means by which this New Emerging Church is being formed
As told in the Book of Revelation, Jesus will come forth as the Word;
“And after these things I looked, and behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony was opened in Heaven” (Revelation 15:5)
We can see then the Apostle John is described looking at the “temple of the tabernacle of the testimony” representing the most high heavenly dwelling place of the Lord Jesus Christ. The Lord God Jesus will come forth from His Holy dwelling place (“temple of the tabernacle “) personally to visit the inhabitants (peoples) of the earth.
“the testimony was opened” represents the Decalogue or the Ten Commandments. In the Old Testament they were also called “the two tablets of Testimony“. The Ten Commandments are the only part of the Holy Bible that was personally written by the “finger of God“. All the rest of the Bible was given in revelation and inspiration to men’s minds to write down and record. These Commandments are the foundation of all morality contained within heaven and on the earth.
Contained within this one verse (Rev 15:5) is the unspeakable and unsearchable holiness and purity found only in the Lord Jesus Christ.
The spiritual meaning contained in the Bible will be revealed and exposed.
In essence, the Lord Jesus will reveal His divine character more thoroughly than ever before experienced or seen by human beings throughout the ages .
It will expose the lies and misconceptions transposed upon The Lord by the Christian church on this day.
Including the interpretation that He is a God of wrath, vengeance, and anger inflicting catastrophic pain and punishment upon non-believers.
The Bible we have on the earth on that day of the Second Coming will come alive and defy expression or any description of His holy beauty.
The Bible will become almost too sacred to be uttered or observed.
At that time the Church will know that He is truly Lord of Lords and king of kings
This is the event that Christians have longed for since the Lord established the Church on earth. Or what is called;
“The Second Coming of Jesus Christ“.
