The Holy Bible is the Word of God, divinely inspired in everything, and we accept it as our only authority. There is no other divine book, neither before nor after in history. What is set out below is not a creed or a dogma, but simply a review of the main doctrines of the apostolic faith, to guide those who ask, "what do you believe?" It is a guiding answer to that question, and to know more it is necessary to read the biblical quotations in context, and carefully consider their meaning. Definitely, The Bible is the divine compass, and source of truth. It is infallible, because it is divinely inspired; Comes from God and represents His thoughts to us. There is no man or church that has the "Magisterium". Therefore, as disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ, we reverently expose these beliefs in the fear of God, and we remind all readers of the apostolic exhortation:
"Let us follow the same rule, let us feel the same thing" (Phil 3:16).
We advise you to read in context and consider each verse here, and observe firsthand what God says in His Word. Since God has revealed Himself through His Word, and has been perfectly expressed in it, let him speak, and let him have the last word. We human beings can not judge or define the Word of God, but it judges us, and defines who is each of us. Through the mouth of the prophet Isaiah, God promises the following:
"I will look upon him who is poor and humble in spirit, and who trembles at my word" (Isa 66: 2).
The Holy Bible is the only Word of God, and is totally and divinely inspired (2 Tim. 3:16), and inerrant. We reject as an apostolic, and therefore heretical, doctrine the assertion of the Council of Trent in 1546, saying that divine truth comes to us not only through Scripture but also through Tradition (theirs , Of course).
Why do we quote the Council of Trent and not others that were celebrated later, including the Second Vatican Council? For this Council accepted for the first time as inspired and canonical the apocryphal Jewish books which the Jews, as well as most of the fathers of the Church (St. Jerome, etc.) rejected, and their statement is still valid today.
We reject the apocryphal books as divine literature, and affirm, according to the apostolic faith, that the Word of God does not include Tradition. Today's Holy Bible is the same as it was before the Council of Trent, and includes the 39 books of the Old Testament and the 27 books of the New Testament. The annotations put in the Bible by churches or by learned men, do not constitute inspiration or authority of any kind.
This Bible is the only book that is the true revelation of God, and carries a curse for those who seek to change it (Rev. 22: 18-19). The Holy Scriptures are infallible, inerrant, and worthy of all credibility (Ps.12: 6, Pr 30: 5-6, 2 Pet. 1: 19-21). Only they have supreme and absolute authority in everything (Ps 1: 1-2, 119: 9, 11, 105). The Bible carries the message of the gospel, and can make us wise for salvation (1 P.1: 23-25; 2 Timothy 3:15).
We also affirm that the Holy Bible is what every true servant of God must study, obey and employ diligently in every aspect of Christian ministry, since his doctrines are sufficient to make the man of God perfect, entirely prepared for all good Work, without adding human wisdom (philosophy, psychology, sociology, etc.) of any kind (2 Ti 3: 16-17, Col. 2: 8).
The true God is one, and apart from Him there is no God (Isaiah 43:10; 44: 6,8; 45: 5-7,21-22). God has revealed that He exists eternally (Psalm 90: 2) in three equal and distinct persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Deut 6: 4, Matthew 28: 19-20, 30; Acts 5: 3-4; 2 Cor. 13:14). He created everything by His power and wisdom (Gen 1: 1, Ps 33: 6-9, John 1: 3, Col. 1:16, Heb 1: 2). He is Spirit and not an impersonal force (John 4:24), and is different from men (Psalm 50:21, Isa 55: 8-9).
No deity or divinity is attributed to any other being, neither Mary nor any saint. None of these people has the omniscience, omnipresence or omnipotence that they need in order to hear our prayers, much less to be able to answer them.
It is not possible to represent the living God with images (lamb, dove, eye, sun, etc.), nor is it permissible to use them in religious worship, bow down before them, worship them (prayers, flowers, candles, offerings, Reverence them in any way, be it worship or veneration. God does not allow us to do them nor to have them (Exodus 20: 4-5, Ps 115: 3-8, Isa 42: 8, Acts 17: 29-30).
The cherubim of the Ark of the Covenant in the Tabernacle (Exodus) are not precedent for making and using images, since the people did not see them, because they were in the Most Holy Place. They were made by order of God, and God has given no such order in the New Testament that authorizes or uses images. This God, the true, is the Judge of all; Who is called the "Ancient of days" (Daniel 7: 9-10, Heb 12:23).
The Lord Jesus Christ is not a creature, but the Creator. He was not created, but the Scriptures affirm that He made all things (Col. 1: 16-17). It is the Word of God, God the Son, the "I am", "Yaveh" or "Jehovah" of the Old Testament (John 1: 1,14, 8: 24,58, Ex 3:14; : 8-12). He is our Lord and Savior (Titus 1: 4), the Messiah promised in the Holy Scriptures (John 4: 25-26). He is God manifested in the flesh (1 Ti.3: 16) that was revealed through the incarnation.
Our Lord Jesus Christ was conceived without sin (not Mary), by a miracle of the Holy Spirit, as Luke 1:35 confirms. His virgin birth (Lk 1:35, Gal 4: 4) in Bethlehem fulfilled several prophecies and gave another proof of His divinity. His human life was sinless (1 Pet. 2:22; 1 John 3: 5), since he never ceased to be God, and therefore could not sin (Heb 7:26). His divine miracles (Acts 2:22) stated that he was what he claimed to be, the Messiah, the Son of God. The Jews themselves understood His language perfectly, and knowing that He presented Himself as God, rejected Him by this very thing, in their unbelief. Like many people of our time, it was not logical or understandable that God should manifest in the flesh.
The death of Jesus Christ was expiatory and substitutionary, since He had neither sin nor knew, but bore our sins in His body on the tree, offering Himself for us and suffering in our place (1 Cor.15: 3; 9; 1 P 2:24; 3:18). The atonement that Jesus Christ performed was "once for all" (Heb 9:12; 10: 10,12,14), and Scripture declares that He entered, "having obtained eternal redemption" (Heb 9:12) . It is not sacrificed in any way today, neither bloodless nor mystical, nor is His sacrifice perpetuated (Heb 9: 23-26). It is a finished, consummate work done "once and for all". His atonement is universal in potency, and it is offered to all, but applied only to those who believe. His resurrection was literal, bodily (Luke 24: 36-44; 1 Cor. 15: 4-8), and was seen by many witnesses.
He ascended bodily to heaven after forty days, where he was received in glory, and sat at the right hand of the Majesty on high (Mk 16:19). God the Father has given him the name which is above every name, and one day every knee will bow, and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father (Phil.2: 9-11). Now Jesus Christ is presented as Savior, and faithful and merciful High Priest. It invites us to draw close to God the Father through Him. Apostolic doctrine affirms that no one can approach God through any other (John 14: 6, Acts 4:12), because the Lord Jesus Christ is the only Mediator Between God and men (1 Tim. 2: 5). Anyone who claims to be a mediator or mediator is false, and makes the Lord Jesus Christ a "one mediator."
The Holy Spirit is God (Acts 5: 3-4). He is the Vicar of Christ, and no man. The Holy Spirit convicts of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment (John 16: 8-11). It regenerates sinners who believe the gospel (Tit 3: 5) and dwells in every believer from conversion onwards (Romans 8: 9; 1 Cor. 6: 19-20). This makes the body of the believer a temple of God.
It can not be received by a confirmation ceremony, or by experiences called "second blessing" or "baptism of the Spirit", etc., but is received by all who are born again, by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ (Eph. 1: 13-14). He does not abandon any believer, but seals them all until they reach heaven, and guarantees the salvation of every believer.
The Word of God declares that God does not give His Spirit by measure (John 3:34). It is the Comforter who promised Jesus Christ to every believer to guide us to the whole truth, and the believer has the Holy Spirit who inspired the Word of God dwelling in him, to enlighten his mind and to help him understand the Bible. He does not speak of himself , But of the Lord Jesus Christ, because His purpose and mission is to glorify the Lord. (John 14: 16-17, 16: 13-15). He gives each believer the power to live a holy life, to testify and serve the Lord (Acts 1: 8; 1 Cor. 12: 7,11). He baptizes us in the body of Christ (1 Cor. 12: 13,27), being members of the body, the Church, which is something that no human being can do.
Man was created by the will of God (Genesis 1: 26-27; Psalm 100: 3) and did not evolve. If we want to speak of "evolution", it would be a descendant, losing the knowledge of God and glorifying man and animals instead of God. The Scriptures testify that man was highly privileged and blessed with the knowledge of God in the beginning, but he would not glorify him as God (Romans 1:21). By his own will he became a sinner and a rebel (Genesis 3: 1-24, Rom 5: 12,16,19).
This first sin resulted in the loss of his special blessings and privileges, and the depravity of the human heart. One only needs to read the newspaper or listen to the news a little to know that the man's heart is depraved. Every day the world is giving God reason with his deeds and denying His existence with His mouth. The man did not approve to consider God, and therefore God gave to a reprobate mind (Ro 1:28). Then man is sinful by nature and by deeds, which manifest his true sinful and depraved condition (Mark 7: 20-23, Ro 1: 28-32, 3: 10-18, Tit.3: 3). He can not do good (Jer 13:23, Isa 66: 4)
Every human being is eternally lost as a result of sin (Genesis 2: 16-17, Ezekiel 18: 4, Romans 1:32, 3: 10-23). The natural man is defiled in his own deceitful and perverse heart (Jeremiah 17: 9, 7: 20-23), and is not able to please God (Ro 8: 5-8). Though he thinks his way is right, his end is the way of death (Proverbs 14:12; Mt 7: 13-14). His good deeds can not save him (Ephesians 2: 8-9, Tit 3: 5), because good works can not pay for sin. Man is not his own savior. Before the Most Holy God all the so-called good deeds of man are nothing but filthy rags (Isa 64: 6). Each human being will be judged by God after death and must prepare for this encounter (Heb 2: 2-3, 9:27; 1 Peter 4:17).
Sin describes the state and deeds of every human being by nature (Romans 3: 9-23). The term means "fail", "transgress", or "not reach the goal". All unrighteousness is sin (1 John 5:17). Sin is rebellion against God; It is all movement against the will of God, whether conscious or unconscious, thoughts (Isaiah 55: 7), deeds (Ro 1: 22-32), or failure to do all that is good that one knows and can (Jas 2:10; 4:17). The Scriptures declare that sin comes from the heart of man, not from society or the environment (Mark 7: 20-23). God declares that those who sin are worthy of death (Ezekiel 18: 4, Rom 1:32, 2: 3, and 12).
The ultimate consequence of sin is death (Rom 6:23), not only physical death, but also, and at the end, the second death of the lake of fire forever. This is a place of eternal punishment and suffering, which is the wages of sin. They will not be annihilated (Revelation 20:10). There is no place like purgatory, but after death there is eternal and irrevocable judgment and punishment in hell. No one can be purified of sins by suffering there, because suffering is punitive and not to purge anything. Those who enter that place out of the presence of God, can never leave, nor will their punishment ever end. Hell is called the second death (Revelation 20: 11-15).
God offers salvation through Jesus Christ, by pure grace, to each person (1 Tim. 2: 3-6; 4:10). The work of the Lord Jesus Christ on the cross is for all in His offering (potential) but is effective only for those who believe (Romans 3:22). The message of this salvation is called the Gospel (1 Cor. 15: 3-4), and it is how God offers man complete forgiveness of sins, and eternal life (John 3:16).
Each person can now know whether or not he has this new life (1 John 5: 11-13). Jesus Christ forever saves (Heb 7:25) the lost and sinful person, by his grace, without human works (Eph 2: 8-9, Tit 3: 5) when he believes the Gospel, repents of his sins and Trust in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior on the merits of His finished work on the cross (Rom 10: 9-17, Acts 3:19, 2 Tim 1:12). Jesus Christ is Lord of all who believe in Him, so that it is impossible to convert without surrendering to Him as Lord. Having trusted, the person is baptized and sealed by the Holy Spirit (Eph 1: 13-14, Tit 3: 5) has eternal life and will never perish (Jn.10: 28).
Then, if we believe what the Holy Bible says, it is clear that salvation is not through the so-called "sacraments", not through the Church, or baptism, or the intercession of saints or mediators, but only through Of the Lord Jesus Christ (John 1: 12-13, Acts 4:12). This life is the only opportunity to be saved, and those who are not saved by the gospel of the grace of God during this life will have no other opportunity, but will be unconverted and lost as enemies of God for all eternity Jn 3:36, 2 Cor 6: 1-2, Heb 3: 7-13, Rev. 21: 8).
The true church is not a physical building, nor a human organization with its hierarchy. It is a living and spiritual organism: "the body of Christ" (1 Cor. 12:12; Eph.1: 22-23). It exists universally and locally. In its universal form (meaning the word "Catholic"), the Church is made up of all true believers in Jesus Christ (1 Cor. 12: 13-27; 1 Pet. 2: 4-5). He is the head of His body, the universal Church (Col.1: 18) and of each local church as well (Rev. 1: 12-13, 20). The Church has no other head, nor in the form of men, nor commissions, nor federations, nor anything else, but Christ alone. Moreover, there is no, and should not be interposed, between the Lord Jesus Christ and the local churches, no other ecclesial government, administration or organization.
This would be to insult the head of the Church and the churches (Ephesians 1:22, Colossians 2:19). In its local (congregational) form the church consists of a community of believers committed to each other and to one another. They meet in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and persevere with devotion in teaching, fellowship, worship (the Lord's Supper, Eucharist), prayers (Acts 2:42), and evangelization (Matthew 28: 19-20; 8: 4, 2 Co. 5: 19-20). Each local church must be independent and autonomous in regard to men and governments, but subject to the Lord Jesus Christ and His Word. Each local church belongs to Christ, and does not need clusters, federations of churches, denominations, or missions.
The Lord Jesus Christ designed that the government of the local church, that is, at the level of congregation, was not by a single man (the one-sided system), but by a group of spiritual men (men) called elders, Bishops (Ephesians 4: 11-12, 1 Timothy 3: 1-7, Tit.1: 5-9, 1 Peter 5: 1-3, Heb 13: 7, 17). Only the Holy Spirit can become an elder, and the responsibility of the local church is to recognize who these men are, to hold them in high esteem and love, to imitate their faith, to honor them, to receive instruction and spiritual training from them. God wants believers to acknowledge His government in the church through these pastors, and therefore, to accept their pastoral ministry, and obey them (in whatever is according to the Word of God), by voluntarily subjecting themselves to them, as servants Of the Lord Jesus Christ (1 Thessalonians 5: 12-13, 1 Timothy 5: 17-19, Ephesians 4: 11-12, Heb 13: 7, 17).
This spiritual government must always be plural, according to the pattern of the New Testament and apostolic doctrine. The congregation should not be governed by vote (democracy), nor by a man called "the shepherd", or by women, or by anything other than by a council of elders. Vocational training (seminaries, institutes, etc.) and ecclesial ordination are not requirements to be an elder, nor are they desirable. What is needed is to be converted, discipled, and manifest the spiritual requirements quoted in the Bible. They serve as the stewards of the Lord Jesus Christ who is the Prince of Shepherds (1 Cor. 4: 1; 1 Peter 5: 4). He also has deacons according to his needs, and they serve the elders and believers so that the elders can persist in their ministry of prayer and in the ministry of the Word (Acts 6: 1-7; 1 Tim. 3: 8-13). But all these men, deacons and elders, are part of the same body of the local church, and have the same priesthood as other believers. The Bible and the church do not recognize the artificial and worldly distinction of clergy and laity, but every believer is a priest of God (1 Peter 2: 5, 9) who has the privilege and responsibility to serve.
The local church has a responsibility to keep itself pure and not to admit the "leaven" or false doctrine (Galatians 5: 8-9) or the practice of sin (1 Cor. 5: 1-13) in the midst of she. Therefore, she also has the authority to discipline those who sin by being in communion in the church. The discipline of the local church is exercised by pastors, in many ways, by counseling, teaching, warning, admonishing, correcting, redoubling, etc. Its most extreme form is excommunication. Pastors develop this ministry in the Name of Christ, according to His Word, and for the good of the whole body. They must be held in great love and esteem because of their work, and no one should prevent them from the pastoral work entrusted to them by the Lord.
Every believer should desire the good of any person who is under discipline, and pray both for her and for the shepherds (1 Cor. 5: 1-6, 11, 2 Cor. 2: 5-11, Gal. 6: 1- 3). The cases that call for the most severe discipline of excommunication are outlined in texts such as Mt. 18: 15-18; Ro. 16:17; Gá. 4:30; And Tit. 3: 10-11. Persons under such discipline should not be received in communion in any church, because it is the way of practicing the truth of one body and one faith. Neither should any individual receive such persons until they have repented, and have been reconciled with those of their own congregation where the discipline originated (1 Cor. 5:11).
With regard to the saints, they are not persons who have died and then have been beatified by human or ecclesial decree. Biblically we understand that the saints are all true Christians, living and dead, without distinction (Phil 1: 1; 1 Peter 2: 5). God declares that every believer is a saint, and demands that he live like the saints. It also demands holiness in our personal lives, as befits the children of the Holy God.
These are not sacraments, but two ordinances that we practice based on Mt. 28: 19-20 and 1 Cor. 11: 23-26. Baptism by immersion is the external and public expression of the internal identity that already exists with Christ in His death and resurrection. According to the Bible, the norm is: to believe in Jesus Christ (faith), which converts the person, and then to be baptized (Acts 2:41, 8:12). For this is the first act of obedience to the Lord. The New Testament does not contemplate believers who are not baptized, nor the baptism of those who are not believers, even when they are children of believers or children of people who profess faith for them in a ceremony. Baptism does not take away original sin, nor does it have any value in forgiving or taking away sins. It is simply a public act of obedience, an expression and declaration of conversion, and loyalty to the Lord Jesus Christ. It is done only once after having understood and believed the gospel.
On the other hand, the Lord's Supper (Holy Communion) is celebrated every Sunday according to the example of the apostolic church (Acts 20: 7). Unlike the dogmas of Rome, proclaimed together with anathemas at the Council of Trent, the Lord's Supper is not a sacrament, nor a bloodless sacrifice, nor does it impart the grace of the Lord to whom it attends. It is celebrated as a simple church meeting for the purpose of remembering and declaring (not perpetuating) the death of the Lord until He comes. It is a meeting that is entirely dedicated to the Lord Jesus Christ, to bring you to memory and worship Him, eating and drinking of the two symbols in anticipation of His coming. It is not the Passover, not the Mass, nor is it in any way a renewal or perpetuation of the sacrifice of Christ, which was done once for all and the Lord declared "it is finished!" Therefore, He does not continue in an attitude of oblation before the Father, but is seated, the posture of a finished work (John 19:30, Heb 9:26, 10: 10-18). Participating in the sacrament is only for people who are already born again and walk with the Lord, living in holiness (1 Cor. 11: 27-30).
The certainty of salvation (as a concept, not as a phrase), is an apostolic doctrine, and means that every true believer can know by the authority of the Word of God that he has eternal life (Romans 5: 1; John 5:13). This can and should know right now, in this life, and is not to be discovered in any future judgment. Not only must every person know for himself, but the believers of every church, and above all pastors, should look and consider one another in regard to the reality of the profession of faith, because the Gospel is the fundamental, And you can know if others are really Christians or not. If they are not, they need to be exhorted and warned, and they should not be included as if they were (Pr 20:11, 2 Cor 6:14, He 3: 12-13, 1 Jn 2: 3-6 ).
With the words "safety of salvation" we mean that those who are in Christ persevere (John 10: 28-29) and will never perish. It is impossible to gain the salvation of God by works or merits, and likewise it is impossible to lose it for lack of these things. Good works are the fruits (results) of being saved and safe, and are characteristics of eternal life, but they do not contribute to salvation (Ephesians 2: 8-10). There are some who can make their profession of believers void, if it is false (Mt 7: 21-23; Tit.1: 16), yet such people never really had salvation. The Bible affirms the security of every true believer by saying that it is impossible to condemn those who are in Christ (John 5:24, Rom 8: 1). They are safe in the hands of God for all eternity, because the gifts and calling of God are irrevocable (Romans 11:29).
All Christians are called to live a life of personal and practical holiness (1 Cor. 6: 19-20; 1 Thess. 4: 3,7; 1 Pet. 1: 15-16). They are the disciples of Christ and as such must be separated from the world and have lives of piety, service and witness to the world (Mark 8:34, Lk 9:23). This service includes the ministry between and with the other believers in your congregation (1 Cor. 12: 7, 29; Ephesians 4:12). It also includes the spread of the gospel to those around him, and throughout the world (Mark 5:19, 16:15, Acts 1: 8, 1 Thessalonians 1: 6-8).
The Lord Jesus Christ clearly forbade to make treasures on earth, and His Word exhorts us to be content with sustenance and shelter, for piety accompanied by contentment is a great gain (Matthew 6: 19-34, Jn 12: 25-26; Co. 3: 12-15). These teachings are not limited to the time of the apostles, but are valid for us also until the appearance of our Lord (1 Timothy 6:14). The Bible condemns greed and covetousness, and the church is bound to maintain its purity, disciplining the covetous in the same way as fornicators and idolaters (1 Cor. 5:11; 6: 9-10).
Spiritual gifts are not talents, but special abilities that come from the Lord Jesus Christ for the good of all in His Church (Ephesians 4: 10-12). He gives them to every believer by the ministry of the Holy Spirit, for the purpose of serving in the church, for the benefit of all (Romans 12: 4-8; 1 Cor 12: 8-10; Eph. 4: 8-12, 1 P. 4: 10-11). This happens, not in a ceremony, but when one becomes and is a sovereign fact of the Spirit of God according to his will and not in response to the requests of men (1 Cor. 12: 7,11,18). Every believer must take advantage of his gift for the building, not of himself, but of the church where he is in communion (1 Cor. 12: 7, 25; 13: 1-3; 14:12). There is no one in the Church who is useless or who can not do anything. Every believer is a member and has a function and a usefulness to the rest of the church that is the body of Christ (1 Cor. 12: 18-27).
Some gifts were to found and establish the Church, such as the gift of healing, miracles, speaking in tongues and the interpretation of tongues (1 Cor. 12: 28-30), pointing out to the Jews especially the veracity and divine authority Of the Gospel message (1 Cor. 1:22, Dt. 28:49, Isa. 28: 11-12, Acts 2:43, 14: 19,21-22, Heb. 2: 4). But the foundation has been laid for centuries (1 Cor. 3:10), and these founding and miraculous gifts ceased when they fulfilled their purpose (1 Cor. 13: 8). Therefore, they are not in use at present, contrary to what they manifest the charismatic and Pentecostal movements. However, we continue to believe that God Himself works miracles, He can do everything, and He heals according to His sovereign will both now and throughout history. But at the same time we recognize that the Bible declares that even Satan can do miracles and he wants to deceive, so the believer should not believe that every miracle is from God, but discern between the divine and the devil (1 Thess. 3: 8-9 with Ex 7: 10-11, 20-22, 8: 5-7; 2 Thes 2: 8-12; 2 Co. 11: 3,13-15; 1 Jn 4: 1 -3; 2 Jn. 7; Rev. 13: 11-15).
God has given different stewardships (or dispensations) and rules that correspond to each epoch, to govern life and relationship with God (Heb 7: 18-19). In every age the way to salvation is by faith alone (Romans 4: 3). We now live in the age of the Grace of God, also called the epoch of the Church, since Christ is now building His church, something that did not exist before this time (Mt 16:18, Rom 6:14; 3: 2-6, Col. 1: 25-27). The Church does not take Israel's place in the prophecies, nor in God's plan, but is a distinct entity (Ro 11: 1-2, 25-26; 1 Cor. 10:32). His future is heavenly, not earthly, and has never been commanded to reign in this world. Romans 9-11 clearly teaches that Israel, as God's people, has not been discarded forever, but broken off as an olive branch during this time.
However, God is powerful to re-graft it, and it will, which means that Israel has a future. God will fulfill all His promises to His earthly people. The hope of the Church is not earthly, like that of Israel, but heavenly. The personal and imminent coming of the Lord Jesus Christ in the air to snatch the Church is the blessed hope of the Church, whose future and inheritance are in heaven, "with the Lord" (John 14: 1-3; 4: 13-18; 5: 4-11). This event, also called the rapture, will end the age of the Church, and will resume divine deals with Israel as a chosen people, which will lead to the salvation of Israel and the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ as Messiah, to reign over all the world since Israel. When the Church is snatched, this order of events will follow:
The tribulation (Dn 12: 1, Mt. 24: 21,29-30; 1 Thes 5: 1-3; 2 Thes 1: 6-10; 2: 1-12).
The coming of the Lord Jesus Christ to the earth, in glory and power, with His saints, to establish His millennial kingdom, with His capital at Jerusalem (Ps 2, Ps 24, Isa 65: 19-25, Ezek. 48, Zec 14: 1-21; Mt. 24: 29-31; Rev. 19: 11-20: 10).
The resurrection of the unrighteous, for condemnation, and the judgment of the great white throne (John 5: 28-29, Rev. 20: 11-15).
The eternal state of punishment for the unbelievers and blessing for the redeemed (Matthew 25:46, 2 Thes 1: 9, 2:12).
