The Second Coming of Christ

Future events will include a literal, physical return of Jesus for his followers (1 Thess. 4:13-18), at which point all evil will be ended forever, including all the wrongs done among humankind, the animal kingdom and the entirety of the universe. The restoration of the created order will be so complete that it will exceed the glory of the original creation in the sense that it will no longer have desire or even the opportunity to rebel against God. The second coming will yield a renewed and incorruptible creation that thrives in the presence of God forever.
