The Second Coming of Christ Before Some Standing Died Matthew

In one of the most simple statements found in the Bible, Christ promised his second coming would occur before some who stood with him died. How did we miss it?.For the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and then He will reward each according to his works. Assuredly, I say to you, there are some standing here who shall not taste death till they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom." (Matthew 16:27, 28).When these words were spoken, Christ and his disciples were on earth in the first century.

It is a message concerning the coming of the Lord in his kingdom. Sadly to say, men deny that either has come. For many, they yet pray, "thy kingdom come." They yet pray, "Come, Lord Jesus!" In an eschatological context, these prayers are contrary to the will of God, (John 9:31, 1 John 5:14, 15).Yes, God grants the prayers of those who pray according to His will, but those mentioned above will by no means be answered.

Why? It is because they ignore the fact that Christ has already returned and the kingdom is now present and has been for centuries.Before Some Standing Died.The promise of the coming of the Lord in his kingdom happened as and when Jesus said it would. One could opt for one or the other alternatives, --to believe that those disciples living in the first century are yet alive today. On the other hand, one could believe Christ is a liar.

It is impossible for God/Christ to lie which rules that option out (Titus 1:2; Hebrews 6:18).On the other hand how sensible is it to conclude that first century disciples are yet living today?.The Help That Hurt.Many expositors and commentators have tried to help the Lord out of a seeming embarrassing difficulty claiming that he had no clue about the time of his return. C.S.

Lewis, Albert Schweitzer and others believed Jesus made a mistake. He did not. Jesus knew and stated over and over again in his ministry that his return would happen within one generation, --not within one generation of the 21st century but of the 1st century.
