Jesus 2nd Coming

Jesus Second Coming, Armageddon, Nations Judged, Satan Finished- At the end of the Great Tribulation Jesus will return to the earth in the valley of  Megiddo  and judge the nations in what you have heard of as Armageddon (Revelation 19:11 and forward). Jesus will return with all who have died in Christ and those who were alive and raptured. The armies of the earth will gather against Jesus and the Armies of Heaven. Jesus will defeat them and throw them into the Lake of Fire and Brimstone. The Antichrist, False Prophet, Kings of the earth, death, hell and all who have rejected Jesus will all be thrown into the lake of fire where there is wailing and gnashing of teeth forever after. It will be a place where God’s presence will not be. Satan will be bound by a mighty angel and locked in the bottomless pit for 1,000 years. Near the end Satan will be released for a short while and for the last time deceive many. Jesus will call down fire from heaven and destroy them. Satan will be thrown into the lake of fire and brimstone to remain forever after. Please read the exact scripture below from the last chapters of the book of Revelation about the Great White Throne of judgment, Jesus destroys the old heavens and earth, creates a new heaven and earth and the New Jerusalem, and where we live with God forever.(Make sure you read what it will be like in Revelation Chapters 21 and 22)

2 Thessalonians 1:1-12 NKJV  (1)  Paul, Silvanus, and Timothy, To the church of the Thessalonians in God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ:  (2)  Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.  (3)  We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is fitting, because your faith grows exceedingly, and the love of every one of you all abounds toward each other,  (4)  so that we ourselves boast of you among the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that you endure,  (5)  which is manifest evidence of the righteous judgment of God, that you may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you also suffer;  (6)  since it is a righteous thing with God to repay with tribulation those who trouble you,  (7)  and to give you who are troubled rest with us when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with His mighty angels,  (8)  in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.  (9)  These shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power,  (10)  when He comes, in that Day, to be glorified in His saints and to be admired among all those who believe, because our testimony among you was believed.  (11)  Therefore we also pray always for you that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfill all the good pleasure of His goodness and the work of faith with power,  (12)  that the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and you in Him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Revelation 19:11-16 NKJV  (11)  Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war.  (12)  His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself.  (13)  He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.  (14)  And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses.  (15)  Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.  (16)  And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.
