Looking for the Blessed Hope
and Glorious Appearing
Who are those who are looking and awaiting?
Those who know there’s something to wait for.
What is the motivation behind our looking?
What motivated Paul’s encouragement for the looking?
The blessings of Grace:
Grace brings salvation
For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.
Grace has appeared to all men
Students of Grace
7 seven great lessons:
To deny ungodliness
To deny worldly lusts
To live soberly
To live righteously
Heb. 12:14 Strive for peace with everyone, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord.
So then, brothers, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. For if you live according to the flesh you will die, but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.
To live godly
To live right in this life
To look for the rapture and the second coming:
But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ

Looking for the Blessed Hope and Glorious Appearing
What is the motivation for the Looking?
Do we, are we looking for the glorious appearing for all the wrong reasons?
What do we want from God?
What are we looking for in Him for our life?
What is the reason we’re looking for rescue?
Grace. That brings salvation!
The gift of forgiveness and transformation: is this what we desire?
Are we concerned about our character, condition of our soul, condition of our hearts?
Do we desire being holy, because He is holy?
We value God’s grace why?
Do we want the gift of Grace or the grace of gifts?
What do you think Israel is looking for today?
The Glorious appearing of God, that bring salvation,
Or, the Glorious appearing of God that brings victory?
The Coming Day of the LORD
1 "For behold, the day is coming, Burning like an oven, And all the proud, yes, all who do wickedly will be stubble.
And the day which is coming shall burn them up," Says the Lord of hosts, "That will leave them neither root nor branch.
2 But to you who fear My name The Sun of Righteousness shall arise With healing in His wings; And you shall go out And grow fat like stall-fed calves.
3 You shall trample the wicked, For they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet On the day that I do this," Says the Lord of hosts.
4 "Remember the Law of Moses, My servant, Which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel, With the statutes and judgments.
5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet Before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord.
6 And he will turn The hearts of the fathers to the children, And the hearts of the children to their fathers, Lest I come and strike the earth with a curse."
