Things coming to pass
We believe in the blessed hope (Titus 2:13) that the Lord Jesus Christ will come again to receive His saints (1 Thessalonians 4: 13-18). We believe in the visible and physical return of Christ to the earth with His saints to establish His promised millennial kingdom (Zechariah 14: 4-11; 1) (Thessalonians 3:13) (Revelation 3:10, 19: 11-) 16, 20: 1-6). We believe in the physical resurrection of all human beings - the saints to eternal joy and bliss on the New Earth, and the wicked to eternal punishment in the lake of fire (Matthew 25:46; John 5: 28-29; Revelation 20) : 5-6, 12-13). We believe that the souls of believers are absent from the body at death and are present with the Lord, where they await their resurrection when spirit, soul and body are reunited to be glorified with the Lord forever (Luke 23:43). Corinthians 5: 8, Philippians 1:23, 3:21, 1 Thessalonians 4: 16-17. We believe that the souls of unbelievers will remain in conscious misery after their death until their resurrection, when they, united with body and soul, will appear at the Great White Throne of judgment and be thrown into the Lake of Fire to receive eternal punishment. (Matthew 25, 31-46; Mark 9: 43-48; Luke 16: 19-26; 2 Thessalonians 1: 7-9; Revelation 20: 11-15).
