This introductory clip can be used to start each session or provide a sneak peak of the next session in the series. The return of Jesus Christ to earth embodies the fulfillment of His promises and of the prophecies foretold about Him. This Second Coming, the culmination of the “blessed hope” of all believers, will be both public and visible. "Look, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him, even those who pierced him; and all peoples on earth will mourn because of him. So shall it be! Amen” (Revelation 1:7).
At the point of salvation, Christ lives in us because we are indwelt by the Holy Spirit. But at the time of sanctification, Christ begins to live through us because now we are filled with the Holy Spirit. “It’s because of him that we endure in Christ Jesus who has become for us wisdom from God, that is our righteousness, our holiness, and our redemption” (Philippians 3:8).
