3 Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming (3952 παρουσία parousia), and of the end of the age?” (Matt. 24:3 NKJ)
3952 παρουσία parousia Meaning: 1) presence 2) the coming, arrival, advent.-Strong’s Concordance
The sign of Christ’s second coming is visible, every eye will see it.
The presence of Christ precedes His physical second coming just as an earthly King’s “presence” is first felt because of events that occur before his arrival.
The “sign of Christ’s presence” will be a huge opening in our Matrix that appears in the sky (Rev. 19:11) flashing like lightning (Matt. 24:3, 27, 30).
This is corroborated by a first century text the (Didache or Teaching of the Twelve Apostles) the sign of the second coming would be an opening in the sky:
And then the signs of the truth shall appear: first, a sign of an opening in heaven; then a sign of the sound of a trumpet; and the third sign, the resurrection of the dead. Now, not all of the dead but as was said, the Lord shall come and all the holy ones with him. Then the world will see the Lord coming upon the clouds of heaven.-Brannan, R. (Trans.). (2012). The Apostolic Fathers in English. Bellingham, WA: Lexham Press.
This sign will appear towards the end of the seven year “week”.
When the fallen away church received the false Christ “man of sin” as “the Christ”, that apostasy took away the Christian “daily sacrifice” (Dan. 12:11 ἂν ἀποσταθῇ ἡ θυσία διὰ παντὸς LXT) beginning the end time seven year “week.”
When Satan and his angels appear the “man of sin” leads the church and indeed, the entire world into total apostasy against all called God or worshipped (Dan. 7:25; 8:12; Rev. 6:2; 2 Thess. 2:9-12; 1 Tim. 4:1; 1 John 2:18-19), hailing the Dragon and his Nephlim as the coming of the kingdom of God. They reward him by making him “Chancellor” of the Revived Grecian Byzantine Roman Empire Beast they inspire be created for the world to unite under (Rev. 13:1-4; 17:11; Daniel 2:40-44; 7:2-7).
At 3 ½ years into his reign (Dan. 9:27; 12:7; Rev. 13:5) Chancellor Adonikam morphs into the Big Mouth Emperor Beast “son of Perdition” (2 Thess. 2:3-4). He then slays God’s two witnesses Moses and Elijah (Rev. 11:7). While he first persecutes believers in Judea and worldwide (Mat. 24:15-26; Mark 13:14-23; Luke 21:25-26; Dan. 12:7, 11-12), he also slays the third of the earth that once claimed to be Christian, even apostate Christendom regardless whether they accepted the mark of the beast or not (Rev. 9:15-19). Incredibly, the rest of humanity is unconcerned this “betrayal” of apostate Christian beast worshippers might indicate they are next on Satan’s list to destroy (Rev. 9:20-21). Satan has great wrath against God and the only way he can hurt Him is to destroy all made in His image and likeness (Rev. 12:12; 16:13-14)
There is no temporal gap, the Cosmic War between God and Satan begins “Immediately after the tribulation of those days” (Mat. 24:29; Dan. 8:10-11 compare Dan. 10:12-13, 20-21).
Counting from the start of the end time seven year “week”, the Son of Perdition appears mid-way or 1260 days. Add 30 days for the Quantum AI network made in the Beast’s image (personality) to be made fully operational and you have 1,290 days (Dan. 12:11; Rev. 13:13-17). The Great Tribulation rages on for another 45 days. Both the apostate Church (Rev. 14:8) and the faithful church (Dan. 12:7) are wiped off the earth (Rev. 9:15-20; 13:7-10; 14:8-13). But the faithful ascend immediately to join the coming Christ (Rev. 14:12-13) in their new resurrection bodies. So also all who endure to the end of the Tribulation, at 1,335 days (Dan. 12:11; Matt. 24:13; 1 Cor. 15:51-58; 1 Thess. 4:13-17; 2 Thess. 2:1; 1 John 3:2; Rev 14:14-16).
11 “And from the time that the daily sacrifice is taken away, and the abomination of desolation is set up, there shall be one thousand two hundred and ninety days.
12 “Blessed is he who waits, and comes to the one thousand three hundred and thirty-five days. (Dan. 12:11-12 NKJ)
They meet Christ offering to fight with Him at Armageddon (Rev. 19:11-12; Ps. 110:3).
Then the Sign of Christ’s second coming appears. Those who missed the rapture but repented declaring publicly they believe Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God (John 20:31; 1 John 5:13; Matt. 10:32; Luke 12:8-9; Rom. 10:9-11; Luke 14:26-27), will be gathered to Christ by His Holy Angels (Dan. 12:1; Matt. 24:30; Rom. 11:25-33).
All the redeemed descend with Christ as Kings and Priests (John 5:24-25; Rev. 1:6; 20:6; 7:13-17) to judge the billions still alive after Armageddon (Matt. 25:31-32; 1 Cor. 6:2-3).
The remaining human population containing both Sheep and the Goats are judged according to their response to the cries of the Church in its time of need during the Great Tribulation (Matt. 25:34-46; 10:42). By the Grace of God, receiving them was counted as receiving Christ.
But that does not occur until after the bowls of God’s wrath are poured out upon the Beast and his followers (Rev. 16:17-21). The powers of the heavens were shaken (Matt. 24:29); Nephilim airships fall like stars and leaves from trees, and the Nephilim Mighty Ones and all their human collaborators are slain (Isa. 24:21-23; 34:1-10; Rev. 6:11-17; 19:11-21; Isa. 66:24), and the Beast and False prophet cast alive into the lake of fire. The mighty unclean frog like Nephilim are compelled to hurl themselves into the lake of fire (Luke 8:31-33). Satan is segregated from them to be let out after the thousand years have ended (Rev. 20:1-2, 7-10)
Therefore, the second coming of Christ, begins with events marking His presence and ends with His actual, visible arrival every eye will see, even the dead in Hades:
7 Behold, He is coming with clouds, and every eye will see Him, even they who pierced Him. And all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of Him. Even so, Amen.
8 “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End,” says the Lord, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.” (Rev. 1:7-8 NKJ)
