Second Coming: Instructions & Preparations

Released March 2, 2021 by Mavericks & Misfits with Jeff Lyle


We are in trouble if we ever lose our awareness that all of the commands, instructions and practical counsel of Scripture is given to us in the context of being ready for the return of Jesus. When God tells us how to live, it is not an abstract set of rules given to a mindless group of robots. The Scriptures are God's love letter which, in part, prepare His children to be reunited with Him in such a way that we are absent of sorrow, regret or loss. The father wants us ready to meet His Son face to face. Christians must live with a constant awareness that this moment is the next grand event on God's prophetic calendar. Yes, Jesus is returning to planet earth. And we must get prepared. In this Mavericks & Misfits episode, Jeff highlights some specific instructions given by Paul to the Christians living in Thessalonica. From what Paul wrote to them, we clearly see that how we are living prior to the return of Jesus is crucial to how we will exist in the coming Kingdom. Much of our focus on the Second Coming tends to rest upon timeline, world governments, the identity of the antichrist and geopolitical events that speak of the end of the age. Yet, in Scripture, we find repeatedly that the mentions of the Second Coming are attached to very specific, clear and practical instructions concerning how God expects Christians to be living. Now is the season for us to consecrate our lives and prepare ourselves to meet the King. Additional resources are available at
