Second Coming of Holy Spirit
Dr. Joe Temple


In our study of the book of Isaiah, verse by verse and chapter by chapter, we are in that section of the book that is known as the Book of Woes , because each chapter of that particular section begins with the word woe .

I pointed out to you that the chapter divisions do not always come in exactly the place that they should, as far as subject matter is concerned, and we would point that out today as we look at the paragraph before us because although it is related to some of the things that have been said up to this point, it is a unit by itself that could be considered without relationship to what comes before or what comes after. We would like for you to keep that in mind as we read in chapter 32, beginning with verse 9:

Isaiah 32

9Rise up, ye women that are at ease; hear my voice, ye careless daughters; give ear unto my speech.
10Many days and years shall ye be troubled, ye careless women: for the vintage shall fail, the gathering shall not come.
11Tremble, ye women that are at ease; be troubled, ye careless ones: strip you, and make you bare, and gird sackcloth upon your loins.
12They shall lament for the teats, for the pleasant fields, for the fruitful vine.
13Upon the land of my people shall come up thorns and briers; yea, upon all the houses of joy in the joyous city:
14Because the palaces shall be forsaken; the multitude of the city shall be left; the forts and towers shall be for dens for ever, a joy of wild asses, a pasture of flocks;
15Until the spirit be poured upon us from on high, and the wilderness be a fruitful field, and the fruitful field be counted for a forest.
16Then judgment shall dwell in the wilderness, and righteousness remain in the fruitful field.
17And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever.
18And my people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting places;
19When it shall hail, coming down on the forest; and the city shall be low in a low place.
20Blessed are ye that sow beside all waters, that send forth thither the feet of the ox and the ass.

We mentioned to you at the beginning of our discussion that this passage of Scripture could be considered all by itself without relationship one to the other. We would not want to leave the impression that there has been any mistake in the writing of the book of Isaiah, for Isaiah has been following a very definite process which you probably have already recognized in your study; that is, he speaks of judgment, then he speaks of comfort, then he speaks of judgment, and then he speaks of comfort. He follows that procedure throughout the Book of Woes.

In our last lesson we were considering the day when judgment would come upon the nation of Israel, because they put their trust in the arm of flesh instead in the Spirit of God. We noticed that Isaiah told them that fact when he told them in the first part of chapter 31:

Isaiah 31

1Woe to them that go down to Egypt for help; and stay on horses, and trust in chariots, because they are many; and in horsemen, because they are very strong; but they look not unto the Holy One of Israel, neither seek the LORD!
2Yet he also is wise, and will bring evil, and will not call back his words: but will arise against the house of the evildoers, and against the help of them that work iniquity.
3Now the Egyptians are men, and not God; and their horses flesh, and not spirit. When the LORD shall stretch out his hand, both he that helpeth shall fall, and he that is holpen shall fall down, and they all shall fail together.

After He pronounces judgment upon them for putting their trust in the arm of flesh, He tells them that He himself will come to their rescue, and as we read in verse 1 of chapter 32:

Isaiah 32

1Behold, a king shall reign in righteousness, and princes shall rule in judgment.
2And a man shall be as an hiding place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest; as rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land.

Then we discovered that that individual was the Lord Jesus Christ. Now, the time when the Lord Jesus Christ shall reign in righteousness is known in theological circles as the Millennium, because it represents 1000 years of righteousness which is to come upon this earth when the Lord Jesus Christ returns to this earth to rule and to reign. So numerous are the Scriptures that declare this fact that if we attempted to even mention a few of them we would not get to the subject that is before us for our consideration in this lesson.

An Exhortation to Women

After God has presented the fact that Jesus is going to come and reign in righteousness, He reminds the people of Israel that before that time of reign and righteousness comes, before that time of blessing arrives, God is going to have to judge the people of Israel, because their attitude and their heart is not right. In this particular paragraph He singles out a special group within the nation of Israel for His judgment and for the pronouncement of His woe. That special group that He singles out are the women of Israel. Glance down at verse 9, where He says:

Isaiah 32

9Rise up, ye women that are at ease; hear my voice, ye careless daughters; give ear unto my speech.

You may be wondering why God would single out the women of the nation of Israel for this special exhortation. We would remind you that in our study of the book of Isaiah, we have discovered that this is not the first time that He has singled out women for this special admonition and exhortation. We would remind you that in chapter 3 of the book of Isaiah, beginning with verse 16 and continuing through verse 1 of chapter 4, Isaiah addressed himself to the women of Israel and pointed out to them that much of the evil that was falling upon the nation was due to them. In that particular portion of the Word of God, He dealt with them about their haughtiness and their pride as was indicated by their conformity to the world in relation to their dress.

When we begin to talk about things, there is a danger of becoming legalistic in our approach and putting so much emphasis upon things that individuals will misinterpret an adherence to rules as an indication of spirituality, and we would not want to do that, but we would remind you that all through the Bible there is a principle. That principle is that the work of God can be helped or hindered by the attitude of the people of God. We would remind you that God, in His wisdom, addresses Himself in many instances when He is dealing with this subject to the women, not to the men.

The Influence of Godly Women

You may wonder why that is. We are going to make a simple statement. Please turn in the New Testament to I Timothy, chapter 2, as we remind you, whether we like to admit it or not, that there is a fact that cannot be disproved, and that is that women have been used of God from the beginning of time as a source of blessing, spiritually speaking, to the world, to a nation, to a group or to a family. We would remind you as well that the Devil, recognizing the tremendous influence that women can bear in spiritual things, also recognizes the tremendous influence they can bear in relation to wicked things, and for that reason he is constantly making his attacks upon them.

The Bible very plainly teaches that every man ought to be the priest of his own house, and you who are reading this study who are husbands and fathers are not discharging your responsibility before God if you are not taking the place as the priest in your home. God intended that you should.

Even as I say that, I must recognize that quite often that is not the case. More times than not, it is not the case. Therefore, the responsibility for the spiritual strength of the home lies upon the women. I would remind you women that those of you who would desire your husband to be the priest of your home, if he does not take the responsibility, don't let the spiritual life of your home go to wrack and ruin. God has a responsibility for you. I would offer this word of caution: Be careful that in the zeal for the spiritual health of your home, you are not doing what your husband would do if you gave him the opportunity of doing it.

All too often I believe godly women are concerned about the spiritual life of their home to the extent that they automatically do what their husbands would do if they would say, “Husband, this is your responsibility; it isn't mine. You are the one who should lead in the family altar; you are the one who should lead in the reading of the Word.”

Notice this passage of Scripture which establishes the principle that I am trying to leave with you. So you will not assume that the words that we have read in the Old Testament are applicable to Old Testament women alone and have no bearing upon individuals who are living in this Age of Grace, we will read I Timothy, chapter 2, verse 8:

I Timothy 2

8I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting.

There is the responsibility of man in relation to prayer life but, says the Apostle, in verse 9:

There are many things in this passage of Scripture that we could spend our entire time discussing, but that is not the purpose of this lesson. I have read the passage of Scripture in order to emphasize two things. God realizes in this New Testament age the tremendous power and influence of godly women. That is described in verses 9-10. I would remind you that the language is relative, and it is important for you to keep that in mind. If not, you will be given to put a great deal of emphasis upon the manner in which you do your hair or the kind of clothes that you wear. For example, I know that there are some women who feel that braided hair is a sign of separation. Here we are told that you shouldn't braid your hair. The reason, of course, is because at the time in which the Apostle was writing this passage, braided hair was an indication of a lack of separation—not separation. The language is relative.

Likewise, this is not a suggestion that you should not wear gold or costly array. It is relative. The emphasis is that you should always dress in a manner which becomes women professing godliness and you should put more emphasis upon the good works along the spiritual line because of the tremendous influence that you bear than upon the manner of your dress.

The Evil Influence of Deceived Women

The last part of the passage indicates the tremendous power that women can bear from an evil standpoint. The woman is reminded of the fact that it was through her that sin entered the world. God forgave it, but God has never ignored it, and therefore He has never permitted a woman to be in a place of authority over man because her construction, her makeup, is easily deceived in relation to spiritual truth.

Every false cult in this country and abroad was started by a woman deceived by Satan. Christian Science: Satan deceived Mary Baker Glover Patterson Eddy into writing The Key to the Scriptures and deceiving people in relation to the Word of God. The Seventh Day Adventists was begun by Harriet White as she was deceived by the Devil in relation to the truth concerning the grace of God. We could go on, but this will be sufficient.

We have asked you to notice this New Testament passage of Scripture because we believe that the appeal that God was making to the women of the nation of Israel in the end of the age, God would make to the women in the Church of our Lord Jesus Christ in the end of the age which we are approaching, reminding you that you have a tremendous responsibility in relation to your attitudes of haughtiness and dress. All of that came to our mind from chapter 3 of the book of Isaiah. We read together chapter 32 of the book of Isaiah, in which God dealt with the nation of Israel, (listen closely now) not because of the attitude of haughtiness and pride on the part of the women, but because of the attitudes of unconcern on the part of the godly women of the nation.

The Concern of Godly Women

I would say to you godly women that you need to be concerned about the trend of the society in which we live. God is making a special appeal to you as He did to these people, asking you to be concerned. Individuals today quite often say, “I'm a child of God. I'm not a citizen of this world, so I am not concerned about what happens.” You ought to be concerned. You ought to be concerned to do something about it.

Somebody says, “I don't have the time.” I ask you to turn to I Timothy, chapter 5, and notice that the Spirit of God takes this same truth emphasized in Isaiah, chapter 32, and emphasizes it in chapter 5. He was talking in this chapter about the responsibility of women, how the elder women should have certain responsibilities and how younger women should have certain responsibilities, how elder widows should have certain responsibilities and how younger widows should have certain responsibilities.

In relation to the elder widows, the Apostle Paul said, “Take them into your fellowship and provide for them financially if they have no means of support, for that is your obligation. When it comes to the young widows, be very, very careful, for your provision for them may prove to be more of a curse than a blessing. Elder women may not have the strength or the ability to work or to provide for themselves. Younger widows will, and if you put them on a dole, you will be providing time for them to create problems and bring about not only condemnation for themselves, but condemnation for others.”

Notice in verse 11:

I Timothy 5

11But the younger widows refuse [refuse to provide support for them] : for when they have begun to wax wanton against Christ, they will marry;
12Having damnation, because they have cast off their first faith.

Don't jump to conclusions. This doesn't mean that a young widow shouldn't marry. It does mean that she should marry only in the Lord. These young widows having no responsibility soon lose their sense of spiritual responsibility and begin to associate with unbelievers and wax wanton against Christ and marry out of the will of God. You will notice in verse 12:

I Timothy 5

12Having damnation [ condemnation is a better word] , because they have cast off their first faith.
13And withal they learn to be idle, wandering about from house to house; and not only idle, but tattlers also and busybodies, speaking things which they ought not.

This is the carelessness of the woman who should have a concern. This is the carelessness of a godly woman in the beginning, who has waxed wanton against Christ because of the idleness of her mind and of her hands. Look at verse 14:

I Timothy 5

14I will therefore that the younger women marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully.
15For some are already turned aside after Satan.

The responsibility of young women, then, is to recognize a concern for the things of God, and their first concern should be their home. God has ordained that the first concern of every young woman is to marry. Now, there are exceptions to this rule. God has given them in the Word of God, but generally speaking, God intends for you to marry.

Taking the Place of Responsibility

Sometimes young women make some statement such as, “I can't wait to get married.” Some parents who don't understand what the Word of God says and don't understand the personality of their children, will say, “You're just boy crazy. You don't need to be boy crazy.” It is perfectly normal for a young woman to want God to bring some boy into her life whom she can marry and with whom she can rear children and guide her home, because the home where children are reared for God is the greatest place this nation or any nation will have.

I know women who have said to me, “I would rather pay somebody to sit with my children and work in an office downtown because I hate to stay at home and I hate to guide the house.” Don't misunderstand me. God has so arranged some of your lives that you have no choice. Some of you are without financial aid, and you have no choice. You have to get a job. You have to leave your children with somebody else while you earn the money that puts the bread and butter on the table and the clothing on the back of your children. I am not talking about you. My heart goes out to you, that you have to take this responsibility. I am saying that any woman who works and turns her children over to somebody else when she doesn't have to is giving an occasion for the Devil to speak reproachfully and to bring reproach upon the cause of Christ.

As Isaiah would stir up the careless women of the day of which he writes, I would say to you today that we need to be concerned about the careless women of our age who are bringing reproach upon the name of Christ. They are failing to take the place of responsibility that God has ordained that they should take in having a concern for the spiritual welfare of their children.

Turn back to Isaiah, chapter 32, where Isaiah says, “You may not have this concern now, but you will. There will come a time when you will strip off your clothes and put on sackcloth, the clothes of mourning, and you will beat your breast in sorrow because the pleasant fields and the fruitful vine will have been turned into thorns and briers, and all the joy will be gone.”

I could stand here and tell you experience after experience of women who, figuratively speaking, are beating their breast today for the condition of their children, because they didn't stay home and take care of them like they ought to have. They are wondering why God would let this happen to them. They are reaping what they sowed.

Now, wait a minute; don't jump to conclusions. I don't want to be misunderstood. I said a moment ago that sometimes God puts you in a position where you have to leave your home, and where you have to go to work. You can't stay at home and guide your house and take care of your children, and you are saying to yourself, “What about my children? Are they going to suffer because of this?” Not necessarily. God said, “I will be a Father to the fatherless, and I will be a husband to the widows.” What you are not able to do because you cannot stay home and guide your house, God will see to it that it is done, but this is the exception, not the rule.

As we look at Isaiah, chapter 32, you will keep in mind that Isaiah was not only speaking about Hezekiah's day, he was speaking about the end of the age when this sort of thing that we are talking about will increase in intensity. You can already see the direction we're headed. Think of the number of women today who are gainfully employed, while their children are in nursery schools. I remember when I was a child, there was no place for children except orphanages, and the only children who went to them were children whose father and mother both had been removed. But that is not the case today. People are forgetting, and women are forgetting that their responsibility is to stay at home and guide the home.

Until the Spirit Returns

God said that this thing is going to continue. Notice verse 15:

Isaiah 32

15Until the spirit be poured upon us from on high, and the wilderness be a fruitful field, and the fruitful field be counted for a forest.

I said that we were going to look at the Second Coming of the Holy Spirit. Many folk read this verse that I have just read and pass over it without realizing its full implication. The word Spirit should be capitalized, for it is a reference to the Holy Spirit of God in the light of the context that we are considering. Isaiah says, “The sad conditions that I have been describing are going to grow worse, and they will grow even worse than what I have suggested until the Holy Spirit be poured out upon us from on high.”

Perhaps you are wondering why I would refer to the Second Coming of the Holy Spirit as I look at this verse. My answer is found in the book of Joel, in the fact that the Holy Spirit has already come the first time. There is much confusion in theological circles, because individuals do not emphasize the first and the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. They emphasize only the first coming. You cannot understand the Word of God unless you understand that the Word of God speaks of the Second Coming of Christ, as well as the First Coming of Christ. I would like to suggest to you that there is much confusion in theological circles because people do not emphasize the First and the Second Coming of the Holy Spirit.

In the Old Testament, the First and the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ were so intermingled that most people miss the point of the First Coming and dwell only on the Second Coming. That is the reason that when the Lord Jesus Christ came the first time, He was rejected by the Jewish nation. When they read the prophecy of the coming Messiah, all they could see was the glory related to those prophecies, and when He came in humility, they could not believe He was the One who was promised.

Just as certainly as the prophecies of the First and the Second Coming of Christ are intermingled in the Old Testament, the prophecies of the First and the Second Coming of the Holy Spirit are intermingled in the Old Testament. Notice now, as I am about to make a change of pace. Individuals recognize only the First Coming of the Holy Spirit, and don't recognize the Second Coming of the Holy Spirit, and therefore much confusion results.

Second Coming Yet Future

The New Testament clears up the confusion in relation to the First and the Second Coming of Christ. Likewise does the New Testament clear up the confusion of the First and the Second Coming of the Holy Spirit, if the Old and the New are rightly related. Notice Joel, chapter 2. The reason that we are looking at this is that Joel prophesied before Isaiah, so Joel gave the promise of the Second Coming of the Holy Spirit, and Isaiah took up the note, and other prophets emphasized it, as we shall see. Notice Joel, chapter 2, verse 28:

Joel 2

28And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:
29And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.
30And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.
31The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the LORD come.
32And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.

Notice the word afterward in verse 28. If we had the time to rightly relate it to what has gone before in chapter 2, we would find that Joel is prophesying about an event that has not been fulfilled in its entirety and will not be fulfilled until a future date.

The Holy Spirit's Appearance At Pentecost

Turn in your Bibles to the book of Acts, chapter 2. This chapter of the book of Acts records what is known as Pentecost . The Day of Pentecost , we would like to emphasize, is a day on the calendar. It occurred fifty days after the Feast of the Passover. The Lord Jesus Christ was crucified at the Feast of the Passover. He was raised from the dead, and He abode forty days upon the earth. He said, “Tarry at Jerusalem until you receive the promise of the Father. According to the Scripture, the promise of the Father could not come until the Day of Pentecost, which was ten days later.

They did not tarry ten days because they had a lot of getting right to get done, though I'm sure there was some prayer and some meditation. They waited ten days, because God said, “The Holy Spirit will not come until that particular day.”

Then, as you glance at chapter 2, without our reading it in detail, you will notice the Holy Spirit came. There were several physical signs accompanying the appearance of the Holy Spirit. There was a sound from Heaven, as a rushing, mighty wind. There was also the appearance of cloven tongues of fire—that is, fire coming down from Heaven, dividing up into several tongues, each tongue lighting upon the head of the individual who was gathered in that particular place. There was also the speaking with other tongues.

Physical Signs At Pentecost

You ask me, “Why was there sound of a rushing, mighty wind?” I cannot offer you any Scripture, for there is none. All that I can offer you is a conjecture. Wind is a type of the Holy Spirit. Perhaps the wind was needed to attract the attention of the great multitudes who were going to shortly hear the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Why the fire? I can offer you no Scripture. There is no Scripture. Again, I can only offer a conjecture. Fire is a type of the Holy Spirit in the Word of God. Perhaps the fire was needed in order to attract the attention of the people who were there that day.

Why the tongues? You do not have to wonder about that. I do not have to offer a conjecture. We are told in this very passage of Scripture that the gift of tongues was presented so that every individual could hear the Gospel in his own language. There was a list of a great many nationalities in verses 8-11. Every single one of them that day heard the Gospel preached in his own tongue. This was a miracle, but it was a miracle for a purpose. They needed to hear the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. This was the First Coming of the Holy Spirit.

First Coming Related to Church

What happened when the Holy Spirit came on the Day of Pentecost? If you have time to read the rest of the chapter, you will find that the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ was formed as a body for the first time. There was no Church up until this point. There were individual believers, but they were not related to one another in a corporate body until this particular event occurred. You will find definite proof of that in I Corinthians, chapter 12, verse 13:

I Corinthians 12

13For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body…

The Church began on the Day of Pentecost. Are you listening carefully? The coming of the Holy Spirit the first time was related to the Church. The coming of the Savior the first time was related to the Church. What was it James said concerning the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ the first time, recorded in Acts, chapter 15? He said in verse 14:

Acts 15

14Simeon hath declared how God at the first did visit the Gentiles, to take out of them a people for his name.

That people constitute His body. That people constitutes the Church.

Why did I ask you to turn to Acts, chapter 2? Because many of the people who were there that day didn't know what was happening. Oh, they saw what was happening, but they said, “We don't understand this from a religious standpoint. We don't understand it from a scriptural standpoint.” So, in verse 16 of Acts, chapter 2, we read:

Acts 2

16But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;
17And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
18And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:

I want you to stop right there. When Peter said, “this is that,” in verse 1, what he literally said was, “The prophecy of Joel is being fulfilled in your eyes this day in a measure.”

The Return of the Holy Spirit

The Acts of the Apostles is the record of how the Spirit of God poured out upon flesh, both men and women, Jew and Gentile, to enable them to evangelize the world in their generation—something that the rest of us have not accomplished. But if you remember what we read in Joel, chapter 2, and look again at verse 19 of Acts, chapter 2, you will realize that the prophecy was not fulfilled in its entirety, for we read in verse 19:

Acts 2

19And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:
20The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day of the Lord come:

If part of the prophecy was fulfilled, then we are guaranteed that the last part of the prophecy will be fulfilled. “Therefore, I say unto you that before the great and notable day of the Lord shall come—that is, the Tribulation—the moon will be turned into blood, and the sky will moved, and blood and vapor of smoke will be the order of the day, and the Holy Spirit will come to the earth again in a marvelous, matchless way.”

Return Related to Israel

You say, “Why come again? I thought He was already here.” He is, but He is going to leave. In I Thessalonians, chapter 4, we are told that the Church in which the Holy Spirit abides will leave this earth, and seven years later He will come back, and He will come back in tremendous power. He will come back in a tremendous manifestation of Himself. But listen closely. As He came on the Day of Pentecost in relation to the Church, He is going to come back again in relation to the Jewish nation. Just as certainly as 120 (at least) in the upper room would have remained a disorganized set of individuals without any supernatural power if the Holy Spirit had not come, so the nation of Israel who is gathered back in the land of Palestine in unbelief will remain a group of disjointed individuals without any supernatural power, but the Holy Spirit is going to come again in relation to them.

Turn in your Bibles to the book of Zechariah, chapter 12, and notice what Zechariah says concerning the Second Coming of the Holy Spirit. If we were to read chapter 12 in its entirety, we would read that the nation of Israel would be gathered in the land of Palestine in the city of Jerusalem, of which she had control. She would be gathered together in abject fear, because the nations of the world would be gathered around the city and completely surrounded and cut off from all help. They would know that their end was nigh. Notice what God says in verse 10:

Zechariah 12

10And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit [ Spirit should be capitalized] of grace and of supplications: [notice] 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.

Look at that verse again, and look at the word upon. Recognize that it should be the word unto instead of upon . It is not that they will be looking upon the Lord Jesus Christ whom they pierced. You see the Bible doesn't mince words. The Bible doesn't try to join together in an ecumenical movement and make the Jews feel good by saying, “You didn't crucify your Lord.” The Bible said, “You pierced Him; you crucified Him; you turned Him down.” Then God said, “I'm going to send the Holy Spirit the second time, and when I send the Holy Spirit the second time, He will open your blinded eyes, and you will look unto Him whom you have pierced.” Look unto Him. Why? Because He is at the right hand of the throne of God, and you will mourn for what you have done, and as you mourn for what you have done, He will accept your confession of sin, and He will arise from His place at the right hand of the throne of God, and He will come swooping down through the sky as is described in Revelation, chapter 19, with the Word of God that is the Sword of His mouth, and He will destroy the Antichrist and all the nations of the world, and you will be delivered. This is the Second Coming of the Holy Spirit.

When you have time, read Psalm 104 and notice verse 30. Read Ezekiel, chapter 39, noticing particularly the paragraph which begins with verse 29. Read chapter 44 of the book of Isaiah, noticing particularly the paragraph which begins with verse 3. You will have a complete picture of all of the wonderful things which are going to happen when the Holy Spirit comes the second time.


The Holy Spirit came the first time, and He takes control of your heart and mine, if we let Him. He is coming the second time and He is going to straighten out all of the evils that sin has wrought in this sin-torn and sin-sick world. We look forward to the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. We ought to be looking forward to the Second Coming of the Holy Spirit, for it is that which will accomplish God's purpose in this hour.
