  The Five Stages of the "Second Coming" 

Prophesied in the Book of Revelation

For the past two thousand years, most people have been taught to anticipate the "Second Coming" to be the miracle of Jesus Christ coming with thousands of angels from the sky. They simply didn't understand the metaphor Jesus used in his prophecies.

Jesus often used metaphor in his teaching to his disciples. For example, Jesus once said, "destroy this temple, and I raise it again in three days." (John 2:19) Most people thought Jesus was talking about the real temple in Jerusalem and didn't believe him. Actually, Jesus did not mean that he could rebuild the physical temple in three days, but used the temple as a metaphor to refer to his body, which would be resurrected in three days. 

Also, Jesus once said, "I am the bread of life...whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life." (John 6:48-54) Most people who followed him before couldn't understand the metaphor in this message and deserted him. Only the twelve apostles still followed Him. If anyone tries to interpret the teaching of Jesus literally without understanding the metaphor Jesus used in his teaching, he could be seriously misled.

It's the same thing with Jesus' teaching on the "Second Coming". In regarding the "Second Coming", Jesus told his disciples, 

"For as the lightning that comes from the east is visible even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man... At that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and all the nations of the earth will mourn. They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky, with power and great glory. And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heaven to the other... I tell you the truth, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened." (Matthew 24:27-34)

Apparently, these things did not happen during the generation of the apostles in the first century. If people try to interpret the teaching of Jesus literally, they could be greatly disappointed. So, what kind of metaphor did Jesus used in this prophecy?

First, Jesus used the metaphor of "lightning coming from the east is visible in the west" to indicate the Son of Man would come from the East to the West, just like the three wise men came from the east to visit baby Jesus in the west during the "First Coming". But unlike the "First Coming" happened in the Middle East and the three wise men came from the eastern region of the Middle East, this time the Son of Man for the "Second Coming" is truly coming from the Far East of the world to the Far West of the world.

Second, the vision of "the Son of Man coming on the cloud of the sky and he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call to gather his elect from one end of the heaven to the other" is similar to the visions John saw on the island of Patmos in the Book of Revelation. But what John saw was the visions in heaven in the spiritual world, not something really happened in our physical world. Did anyone else on the island of Patmos see those visions John saw? No, because these were the visions John saw  in the spiritual world after he was lifted "in spirit" to the heaven (Revelation 4:1-2). Therefore, the vision described here is what will happen in heaven, "from one end of the heaven to the other," not the actual event happening in the physical world on the earth or visible to the people in the physical world on the earth.

Yes, those thousands of angels did follow the Son of Man coming down from heaven in the spiritual world as prophesied by Jesus, but in this physical world, they were born as the normal children, just like John the Baptist was born as a normal child in the "First Coming". When they grow up and hear the call of the Son of Man, they will come out as the "Armies of Heaven" (Revelation 19:14) to fight the beasts of AntiChrist and establish the "New Millennium Kingdom" on the earth as prophesied in Revelation 19 & 20.

Third, the prophecy of the Son of Man coming with his angels with "a loud trumpet call (NIV)" or "a great sound of a trumpet (KJV)" was also confirmed by the prophecy in the Book of 1 Thessalonians, 

"For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the Archangel, and with the Trump of God." (1 Thessalonians 4:16, KJV) 

Here, the word "Trump" in the King James Version (KJV) of the Bible is the ancient equivalent of "trumpet". Did anyone ever wonder how could President Trump pull out such a miraculous turnaround on the election night November 8, 2016, despite all the odds in the major polls against him? That's because it is the part of the prophecy related to the "Second Coming" that must be fulfilled when the Son of Man comes. Whether you like him or not, his name "Trump" is LITERALLY in the prophecy of the "Second Coming" in 1 Thessalonians 4:16 in the King James Version of the Bible. 

More amazingly, the name of the Archangel is Michael, which is also the first name of the Vice President Mike Pence. When "Trump" and "Michael" appeared together, that prophecy in 1 Thessalonians 4:16 was fulfilled. That's why the miracle happened on that election night due to the special blessing of God, which is also the confirmation of the prophecy that the Son of Man for the "Second Coming" has already come.

Now, you probably have some idea of how the prophecies of the visions in heaven were fulfilled on the earth. So, how would the prophecy of the "Second Coming" be fulfilled in our physical world on the earth? 

Actually, Jesus already gave a hint about the "Second Coming" in the real world in the last letter of the "Seven Letters to the churches" in the Book of Revelation. In the last letter to the Church of Laodicea, Jesus wrote, 

"Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me." (Revelation 3:20)

Many Christians, including many pastors and priests, may be too focused on watching out for the Supernatural Phenomenon in the sky while ignoring the knock on the door. It's like those Jewish priests and teachers in the first century who knew the Messiah was coming but they only anticipated the Messiah to be the prince in the royal family not the countryman from a carpenter's family. When people tried to impose their own interpretation upon the plan of God, they could easily be misled and repeated the same mistakes those Jews made two thousand years ago.

Therefore, It's important for people to understand the final version of the prophecies regarding the "Second Coming" in the Book of Revelation as no one can add or delete anything from the Book of Revelation. In fact, the Book of Revelation prophesies the Five Stages of the "Second Coming" on the earth.

The Five Stages of the "Second Coming":

1. Stage One: The Birth of the "Man Child", the "Second Child" prophesied in the Bible, in the country of the "Red Dragon" (Revelation 12:5)

2. Stage Two: The Spiritual Awakening of the Lamb on "Mount Zion" (Revelation 14:1-5)

3. Stage Three: The New Revelation of God of the "Eternal Gospel" for the "New Millennium" and for the Time of Harvest on the Earth (Revelation 14:6-20)

4. Stage Four: The Prelude of the "Second Coming" to prepare the children of God for the Final Spiritual Warfare against Satan during the time of "Armageddon" (Revelation 16:15)

5. Stage Five: The Main Event and the Finale of "Second Coming" of the "Rider on a White Horse" with the "Armies of Heaven" to defeat the beasts and "lock up Satan a thousand years" (Revelation 19:11-20:5)

Here are the brief interpretations on these prophecies about the "Second Coming" in the Book of Revelation. The more detailed interpretation is revealed in the book, Revelation Fulfilled.


1. Stage One: The Birth of the "Man Child", the "Second Child" in the Bible, in the Country of "Red Dragon" (Revelation 12:5)

"A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth. Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads. Its tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth so that it might devour her child the moment he was born. She gave birth to a son, a male child / Man Child (KJV), who will rule all the nations with an iron scepter. And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne. " (Revelation 12:1-6)

In the past, many people thought this prophecy was about the birth of Jesus Christ two thousand years ago. But the visions in the Book of Revelation are about the future events after the first century, “what must take place after this.” (Revelation 4:1). This “Man Child” “who will rule all the nations with an iron scepter” (Revelation 12:5) is actually the same person as the “Rider on a White Horse” who will “rule them with an iron scepter.” (Revelation 19:15) In other words, this “Man Child” in Revelation 12 is the Christ for the “Second Coming” in Revelation 19.

In the Bible, there are two "child" prophesied to be born.  The "First Child" was prophesied in Isaiah 9:6 in the Old Testament, who was Jesus in the New Testament for the "First Coming". The "Second Child" was prophesied in Chapter 12 of the Book of Revelation, who was born under the reign of the "Red Dragon" (Revelation 12:5) and later came to the land of the "Great Eagle" (Revelation 12:14). After the "Man Child" grew up and spiritually awakened, he would come out as the "Rider on the White Horse" for the "Second Coming".

In this prophecy, the "Man Child" would be born during the time of the Great Persecution of the "Red Dragon", but his spirit "was snatched up to God and to his throne" so that he could grow up like a normal child without being detected and "devoured" by the "Red Dragon". This "snatch up" is similar to John's experience of being lifted into heaven "in spirit" while his physical body still remained on the earth in Revelation 4:1-2.

After the Great Persecution ended, God revealed this information to a musician in the United Kingdom and inspired him to wrote a beautiful song about this "Second Child" in the Bible. This song is "When a Child is Born", written by Fred Jay and performed by Johnny Mathis.

Many people in the past thought this song was just a normal Christmas song for the birth of Jesus Christ two thousand years ago, but in fact, it was the only "Christmas" song for the "Second Child" in the Bible, the "Man Child" in Revelation 12:5.

There were only two persons who had been "snatched up" to heaven in the Book of Revelation, John the Revealer in Revelation 4:1-2 and the "Man Child" in Revelation 12:5. That's also the reason that only the "Man Child" has the full comprehension on how those visions on the scroll were fulfilled both in heaven and on the earth.


2. Stage Two: The Spiritual Awakening of the Lamb on Mount Zion (Revelation 14:1-5)

"There before me was the Lamb, standing on Mount Zion, and with him 144,000 who had his name and his Father's name written on their foreheads. And I heard a sound from heaven like the roar of rushing waters and like a loud peal of thunder. The sound I heard was like that of harpists playing their harps. And they sang a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and the elders. No one could learn the song except the 144,000 who had been redeemed from the earth. These are those who did not defile themselves with women, for they remained virgins. They follow the Lamb wherever he goes. They were purchased from among mankind and offered as firstfruits to God and the Lamb. No lie was found in their mouths; they are blameless." (Revelation 14:1-5)

After the "Man Child" in Revelation 12 grew up, he would come to the land of the "Great Eagle" (Revelation 12:14) and be spiritually awakened in the State of "Mount Zion" at the beginning of the New Millennium. The State of "Mount Zion" is the State of Utah where the Zion Canyon or Zion National Park located in the Land of the "Great Eagle", the United States of America.

This prophecy also indicated that the "144,000 who had been redeemed" also followed the Son of Man coming to the earth now. They were born as normal children just like John the Baptist was born as a normal child during the "First Coming" two thousand years ago. They will come out as the "Armies of Heaven" during the time of the "Second Coming". (Revelation 19:14-21)

In this prophecy, there is also a “new song” that “no one could learn except the 144,000 who had been redeemed from the earth.” (Revelation 14:3) This indicates that there will be New Revelation of God to be revealed that no one had learned before.


3. Stage Three: The New Revelation of God of the "Eternal Gospel" for the "New Millennium" and Preparation for the Time of Harvest (Revelation 14:6-16)

"Then I saw another angel flying in midair, and he had the eternal gospel to proclaim to those who live on the earth-to every nation, tribe, language and people. He said in a loud voice, "Fear God and give him glory, because the hour of his judgment has come. Worship him who made the heavens, the earth, the sea and the springs of water."" (Revelation 14:6)

"There before me was a white cloud, and seated on the cloud was one like a son of man with a crown of gold on his head and a sharp sickle in his hand. Then another angel came out of the temple and called in a loud voice to him who was sitting on the cloud, 'Take your sickle and reap, because the time to reap has come, for the harvest of the earth is ripe.' So he who was seated on the cloud swung his sickle over the earth, and the earth was harvested." (Revelation 14:14-16)

In this prophecy, there will be the New Revelation of God on the "Eternal Gospel" for "every nation, tribe, people and language". (Revelation 14:6). 

In the past, most Christians were taught that the Revelation of God was ended with the verses of Revelation 22:18-19, but they misunderstood these two verses. These two verses declared that no one can add any prophecy to or delete any prophecy from the Book of Revelation. They do not mean the end of God’s revelation to His children. Actually, it even prophesied there would be a New Revelation of the “Eternal Gospel” for “every nation, tribe, language and people” in Revelation 14.

The reason that God reveals the New Revelation of the “Eternal Gospel” in Revelation 14 is to help the children of God to counter back the attacks by the beast of Antichrist in Revelation 13. Because the current scriptures most Christians have were given almost two thousand years ago, they are not enough to fend off the attacks by the beast of Antichrist. That’s why this beast of Antichrist could “make war against the saints and conquer them, and he was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation.” (Revelation 13:7)

This New Revelation of the “Eternal Gospel” is the key to defeating the beasts of Antichrist and the false prophet during the time of the “Second Coming” and to lock up Satan a thousand years. (Revelation 19:11-20:5). It will be the "New Millennium Testament" for the "New Millennium Kingdom" prophesied in Revelation 20:1-5. It is the third and last Testament of the Holy Bible Trilogy, the Old Testament, the New Testament, and the New Millennium Testament. 

After the Son of Man was spiritually awakened in the State of "Mount Zion", the New Revelation of the “Eternal Gospel”, the New Millennium Testament for the New Millennium, was revealed. This is the major revelation of God to prepare people for the “Time of Harvest” and the Final Spiritual Warfare to defeat the beasts of Antichrist and lock up Satan a thousand years.

4. Stage Four: The Prelude of the "Second Coming" during the time of "Armageddon" (Revelation 16:15)

“The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up to prepare the way for the kings from the East. Then I saw three impure spirits that looked like frogs; …and they go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them for the battle on the great day of God Almighty. 

Behold, I come like a thief! Blessed is the one who stays awake and keeps his clothes with him, so that he may not to go naked and be shamefully exposed.” 

Then they gathered the kings together to the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon.” (Revelation 16:12-16)

This prophecy prophesied the major historical events in the Middle East in the last three decades. The Drought of Euphrates prophesied the Embargo and Economic Sanction on Iraq that followed by the invasion of the US Allies coming from the East, Kuwait, during the War in Iraq. After the War in Iraq ended and US pulled out of Iraq, the evil spirits came out to cause all the atrocities of ISIS and dragged all the world powers into the War in Syria for the “Battle of Armageddon”.

During the time of "Armageddon", the Son of Man will come out quietly "like a thief' to expose the evil plot of the "Three Evil Spirits" to destroy the world with the "Battle of Armageddon". The Son of Man will reveal the 2,000-year Mystery of the Book of Revelation to help people learn the lesson through history and understand God's interaction with His children on the earth in the past two thousand years. 

This is the Prelude of the "Second Coming" to call for those who "stays awake and keeps his clothes with him." They are the children of God who are prepared for the Great Event of the "Second Coming", including those "144,000" and the "armies of heaven" prophesied in Revelation 14 and 19.  They have already been born unto the earth, just as the Son of Man was born as the "Man Child" under the reign of the "Red Dragon". It's time for these "144,000" and the "armies of heaven" prophesied in Revelation 14 and 19 to come and join the Son of Man on the Great Mission of the "Second Coming".

5. Stage Five: The "Second Coming" with the "Armies of Heaven" to defeat the beasts and lock up Satan a thousand years for the New Millennium (Revelation 19:11-20:5)

"I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and wages war. His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself. He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God. The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean. Coming out of his mouth is a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. He will rule them with an iron scepter. He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty. On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: King of Kings and Lord of Lords." (Revelation 19:11-16)

This is the main event of the "Second Coming" as the Son of Man comes as the "Rider on a White Horse" with the "armies of heaven" to defeat the beasts and lock up Satan a thousand years for the "New Millennium", the "One-Thousand-Year" New Era of Peace and Wisdom on the earth.

There are two special features of the "Second Coming" in this prophecy that most people did not understand or pay attention to in the past: The New Name of Christ and the Iron Scepter/Rod of Iron that rules the world.

i) The "New Name" of Christ 

In this prophecy, there is one specific sentence most Christians need to pay attention to, "he has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself." This indicated that this time the "Son of Man" for the "Second Coming" will have a different name that no one knows before, not the name "Jesus" or "Immanuel" that most people already know. That confirms what Jesus said in the Letter to the Church in Philadelphia, "I will write on him my new name." (Revelation 3:12) So be prepared for something that you may not know before but was actually prophesied in the Book of Revelation, the Christ for the "Second Coming" with a "new name" but the same spirit of Jesus in the "First Coming".

ii) The "Iron Scepter/Rod of Iron" that rules the world

The prophecy of "He will rule them with an iron scepter/rod of iron (KJV)" (Revelation 19:15) confirms this "Rider on a White Horse" in Revelation 19:11 is the same "Man Child" in Revelation 12 "who will rule all the nations with an iron scepter/rod of iron (KJV)" (Revelation 12:5). After the "Man Child" grew up and was spiritually awakened, he will come out as the "Rider on a White Horse" to "rule all the nations with an iron scepter/rod of iron." This "Iron Scepter/Rod of Iron" is the Law of Reward and Judgment of God for all nations.

Unlike Jesus Christ brought the Salvation of God through His sacrifice during the "First Coming", the Son of Man for the "Second Coming" will bring forth the Law of Reward and Judgment of God for all nations, and "in righteousness He judges." (Revelation 19:11). That Law of Reward and Judgment of God will be revealed in the "Eternal Gospel" for "every nation, tribe, language and people" prophesied in Revelation 14:6. That's why after the angel proclaimed the "Eternal Gospel" to "every nation, tribe, language and people", he said in a loud voice, "Fear God and give Him glory, because the hour of judgment has come. Worship Him who made the heavens, the earth, the sea and the springs of water." (Revelation 14:7)

Therefore, this New Revelation of the "Eternal Gospel" contains the power of blessing and judgment from God through the Law of Reward and Judgment of God. It is the New Millennium Testament for the New Millennium prophesied in Revelation 20:1-5. Only those who learn the Law of Reward and Judgment of God in the New Millennium Testament can qualify to "reign with Christ a thousand years" for the New Millennium Kingdom. (Revelation 20;1-5)

These are the brief introductions on the Five Stages of the "Second Coming" prophesied in the Book of Revelation. The more detailed information on these Five Stages of the "Second Coming" is revealed in the book, Revelation Fulfilled.


In the past, no one understood what these prophecies really mean and how these prophecies in the Book of Revelation would be fulfilled. Just like what is said in Chapter 5 of the Book of Revelation, "no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth could open the scroll or even look inside it, except the Lamb."  (Revelation 5:3-5) Therefore, only the Lamb had the authority to open the seals on the scroll and only the Son of Man for the "Second Coming" has the authority to unseal the 2,000-year mystery of the visions on the scroll in the Book of Revelation. 

As Jesus forewarned in Chapter 24 of the Gospel of Matthew, there would be many false christs and false prophets came before the real Son of Man for the "Second Coming". The key to differentiating the real Son of Man for the "Second Coming" from those false christs is the Book of Revelation. Those false claimers had no clue what the real meaning of the prophecies in the Book of Revelation is, nor did they fulfill the prophecies of these Five Stages of the "Second Coming". Only the Son of Man who went through these processes knows how these prophecies would be fulfilled. No one knows the prophecies in the Book of Revelation better than the One who was prophesied in the Book of Revelation.

Two thousand years ago, when Jesus came for the "First Coming", none of those educated priests and teachers accepted him because they all misinterpreted the prophecies about the coming Messiah, the "First Child" prophesied in the Bible (Isaiah 9:6). Now, history is repeating itself and there are also many misunderstanding and false interpretations of the Book of Revelation in the market or over the internet. Even most faithful pastors, priests and intelligent scholars do not have the correct understanding on the visions on the scroll in the Book of Revelation. But this is not their fault because the Heavenly Father has intentionally sealed the secret of these prophecies for the past two thousand years and only the Son of Man for the "Second Coming" has the key and authority to decode it.

Now, as the Son of Man for the "Second Coming", the "Second Child" prophesied in the Bible (Revelation 12:5), has come, the 2,000-year Mystery of the Book of Revelation has finally been decoded in the new book, Revelation Fulfilled. Anyone who is interested in the history and prophecy, especially the pastors, priests, Bible school teachers and Christian scholars, should read it carefully to fully understand how the prophecies were fulfilled through the major historical events in the last two thousand years of Christian history.

Currently, we are at the stage of the "Battle of Armageddon" and the Prelude of the "Second Coming" in Revelation 16. Behold, I come like a thief! Blessed is the one who stays awake and keeps his clothes with him, so that he may not to go naked and be shamefully exposed.” (Revelation 16:15) It also confirms the prophecy of the “Second Coming” that Christ gave at the end of the Seven Letters to the Seven Churches, Behold! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me.(Revelation 3:20)

This is not the flashy supernatural phenomenon of Christ coming from the sky with thousands of angels as most people anticipated, but the low-profile humble coming of the Son of Man at your doorstep. The purpose of this Prelude of the “Second Coming” is to reveal the true meaning of the prophecies in the Book of Revelation and bring the New Revelation of the “Eternal Gospel” (Revelation 14:6) to the people of God first to prepare them for the Final Spiritual Warfare of the “Second Coming” to defeat the beasts of Antichrist (Revelation 19:17-21) and lock up Satan for a thousand years (Revelation 20:1-5). Those who open the door for the Son of Man and accept the New Revelation of the "Eternal Gospel", the New Millennium Testament for the New Millennium Kingdom, will be blessed to "reign with Christ a thousand year." (Revelation 20:4)

"Blessed are your eyes because they see, and your ears because they hear. For I tell you the truth, many prophets and righteous men longed to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it." (Matthew 13:16-17). 

The time for the Great Spiritual Renaissance and New Era of Peace and Wisdom has arrived! This is the OPEN CALL for those Children of God who are prepared for the "Second Coming". If you are one of the "144,000" or want to join the "Armies of Heaven" for the "Second Coming", please sign up the "Newsletter of the Second Coming" for more revelation on the "Eternal Gospel" for "every nation, tribe, language and people" prophesied in Revelation 14:6.
