The King Is Coming! Have you ever tried to imagine what Christ's return will be like? As you explore the Scriptures with Charles Spurgeon in this book, you will discover the circumstances that will surround Christ's second coming
what will actually happen during Jesus' reentry to Earth, what it means to watch for the Lord's reappearance, how to prepare yourself for His return, how to ensure the safety and acceptance of your loved ones, the heavenly rewards that are laid up for the righteous, how you are to act until Christ comes again, and how Christ's first Advent altered the course of all mankind, forever changing our destiny. His second coming will have an even greater impact as the King of Kings and Lord of Lords returns to earth, intervening in one moment to claim His bride and to judge all of humanity. "Blessed are those servants, whom the Lord when he cometh shall find watching." (Luke 12:37)
Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892), the "Prince of Preachers," preached his first sermon at age sixteen and became a pastor at age eighteen. Spurgeon drew large crowds and built the Metropolitan Tabernacle in London in 1861 to accommodate them. He published over two thousand sermons; his inspiring and challenging messages comprise the largest collection of work by a single author. Spurgeon preached to an estimated ten million people during his lifetime, including notables such as the prime minister of England, members of the royal family, and Florence Nightingale. He appealed constantly to his hearers to move on in the Christian faith, to allow the Lord to minister to them individually, and to be used of God to win the lost to Christ. In addition to his powerful preaching, Spurgeon founded and supported charitable outreaches, including educational institutions. His pastors' college, which is still in existence today, taught nearly nine hundred students in Spurgeon's time. He also founded the famous Stockwell Orphanage.
