PART 2 “Presence” Eschatology
PART 3 Bridal Eschatology
PART 4 The Perfectly Obedient Bride
PART 5 THE 2nd COMING OF THE „PRESENCE“
We’ll have the power to raise people from the dead,
that even death won’t stand before the power of the Church.
I don’t know what the Second Coming is to you, …but let me tell you he’s coming to you, he’s coming to his church, he’s coming to abide in you, to take up his abode in you….

God spoke to the children of Israel to build Him a tabernacle because He wanted to come and dwell with them. If you don’t build it He won’t come and stay. You won’t have a habitation without it.
