“The Parousia, The Eschaton, The Second Coming”
The "Apostle's Creed" declares "He ascended to heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty. From there he will come to judge the living and the dead." The promise of Christ to his followers and the belief of the early church point us to the return of Jesus Christ. It has been called the Parousia, the Eschaton, the Second Coming, but regardless of the name or theological variations Christ has promised to return in power and rule over the earth. Perhaps as we see our world, our culture and our loved ones in turmoil we might find ourselves praying with the early church and the words of Revelation "Even so, come, Lord Jesus".
