God’s visitation – first and second


God visited man in the person of Jesus Christ (first coming) and the people did not recognize Him; some people rejoiced proclaiming “Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord (John 12:13) ” while others rejected Him saying “We have no King, but Caesar (John 19:15) ,” and God wept (Luke 19:44).

God will visit man again in the glorified person of Jesus Christ (second coming) and this time the people will recognize Him and some will rejoice entering into the Joy of the Lord (Matthew 25:23) while others who have now rejected Him will weep; there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth (Matthew 24:51).

In the first coming, God wept.
In the second coming, man will weep.

Choose ye this day, if you want to rejoice or weep, when Christ Jesus returns.

Luke 19: 41 -44 (KJV)
41
And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it,
42
Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes.|
43
For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side,
44
And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation.
