Mike Bird on the Return of Christ

“The return of Christ is not a repetition of his original coming, nor an addendum to his earthly work; rather, it is the completion of his work of reconciliation. The divide between heaven and earth is melted down at Christ’s second advent. Two worlds collide, and the terrestrial world is changed as heaven is permanently imprinted on it. It is the final stage for God to dwell with his people, in his reign, in his place. As C.S. Lewis said, when the author steps onto the stage, the play is over.” –Michael F. Bird, Evangelical Theology.
