Video: John MacArthur Preaching Opportunity for Repentance and Salvation After the Second Advent of Christ
“It is at that time when Christ returns, he says “And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn. In that day shall there be a great mourning…” Zechariah 12:10-11.
In other words, in that day, when Christ returns, God will pour out His Spirit on Israel and the Spirit as always poured out will do initially a work of conviction, and they’ll look on Christ and they’ll mourn for what they did to Him.
And in that same day, verse 1 of 13 says there will be a fountain open to the House of David and their inhabitants of Jerusalem for sin and for cleansing. And at the end of verse 9 of 13 it says I will say it is my people and they shall say the Lord is my God.
When Jesus returns there will be a great revival in Israel. They will meet the Lord Jesus Christ. They will be redeemed, in fact in 13:6 it says one shall say unto Him, What are these wounds in your hands? And He shall answer those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends”
“They’ll recognize Him, and they’ll be saved…Their souls will literally be jolted into salvation by the vision, of the returning Christ, who once, they crucified. What a day that’ll be.
Here is John MacArthur in his own voice. His words.
What do I think of it?
Well, the man is preaching and teaching opportunity for repentance after the second coming of Christ. That’s not good news, that is a lie. It says that you can repent after Jesus comes again. Do you, reader, really believe that? Seriously?
It is a false teaching. A false promise endangering souls of men. It is a deviation from the teaching of Scriptures en totem. It is a false gospel, and a lie from hell.
The entire Church should be in an uproar over this…but it is not. Too many are sleeping, or do not desire to ‘rock the boat.’ After all, we don’t want to be unpopular, do we?
