most biblical sources irrelevant[edit]

most biblical sources at the beginning of the article refer to assension to heaven or the kingdom of god, not the second coming. check them out. unless i don't know of some kind of connection between all those that makes them the same. even if some kind of logic makes the same it has to be addressed. without it, they are logically different things.—Preceding unsigned comment added by 161.76.99.106 (talkcontribs) 04:10, April 20, 2006

It is relevant because that was when He promised to return.

Imbalanced Representation[edit]

Each paragraph outlining basic religious beliefs has at least a sizable paragraph summarizing the beliefs the religious set of ideas, with one exception. May I suggest adding a few summarizing points about the beliefs of the Latter-day Saint beliefs on the second coming, rather than leaving it saying that the Latter-day Saints have many notable distinctive and specific beliefs? Just because there are many differences in Latter-day Saint beliefs and the specificity of those beliefs does not mean that they are not worth summarizing as is done with every other group. I would suggest at least a few points so that readers have some idea of what those distinctions are, not just knowing that there is a distinction. If we're going for brevity, let's be brief across the board and say that each group simply has distinctive beliefs. I would be happy to attempt a Latter-day Saint summary if there is agreement. Thank you.

Bible Prophecies[edit]

I added... There are several Bible prophesies concerning the return of the Christ: (A) "Coming at the end of the age" - Matthew 24:3-14. Many regard December 21, 2012 as the end of the Age of Pisces and beginning of the New Age/Messianic Age/Age of Aquarius. (B) 1 Thessalonians 4:17 may be a prediction of a time of airplanes and helicopters. (C) According to Revelation 5:1, the 2nd Coming must produce the "book/scroll sealed with 7 seals." (D) The Bride of Christ refers to the joining of the 2nd Coming and the Church. (E) The Christ returns to "Judge everyone according to their actions". - Revelation 20:12-13, 22:12 2601:580:100:E99A:FD18:9CDA:15CD:B327 (talk) 19:25, 24 May 2019 (UTC)

“Rastafarianism” “Baha’ism”[edit]

It is needless to add splinter groups from the original Christian and Islamic faiths, or mixtures of the two.

Islamic central belief and Christian central belief directly influence the splinter faiths. A start-up religion that believes in the second coming got the canonical information from elsewhere; not from within itself. JasonMoore (talk) 01:23, 29 March 2021 (UTC)

Revelation 5:1, only the "Lion"/"Lamb" can produce the "book/scroll sealed with 7 seals" - This triggers "plagues, natural catastrophies, economic collapse, etc."[edit]
