TOPIC: Are You Prepared For His Second Coming? (Scroll down for RCCG House Fellowship 11 April 2021 Anthem)

OPENING PRAYER: Father, please help me not to miss heaven.

PREVIOUS KNOWLEDGE: The leader should ask the members to explain how a Christian can grow to the full stature of Jesus Christ.

MEMORY VERSE: Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. – Matthew 24:44

BIBLE TEXT: Matthew 24:3-44 (KJV)

3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?

4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.

9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.

10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.

11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)

16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:

17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:

18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.

19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!

20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:

21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.

23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.

24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

25 Behold, I have told you before.

26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.

27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.

29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:

30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:

33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.

34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.

35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,

39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.

44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.

LESSON INTRODUCTION: To prepare is to make ready for a particular purpose, it also means to put things in readiness. Brethren, from today’s bible text Jesus gave us a lengthy description of many signs that would precede His second coming. It is now over two thousand years after the death, resurrection and ascension of Christ. Therefore it is pertinent for any heaven minded person to address the state of his/her preparedness for the second coming of our Lord, Jesus Christ.

To encourage Christians not to lose focus of their eternal home.

TEACHING OBJECTIVES: At the end of the lesson, members should be able to:
i. Explain the pilgrimage status in this world.
ii. And stay prepared always waiting for that great day.

TEXT REVIEW: Matthew 24:3-44

i. Jesus is coming again whether some people believe it or not.
ii. Jesus took time to explain from the text, those things that will take place before His second coming.
iii. Please take heed so that ‘if I had known’ will not be our last statement.

TEACHING METHOD: Leader should use the discussion method.

TIME MANAGEMENT: Share the teaching time using the suggested time schedule.

LESSON OUTLINES: There are three outlines:


  1. It was revealed to Daniel and recorded. – Daniel 7:13-14
  2. It was revealed by Jesus in Matthew 24:30-31
  3. Jesus hold His disciples of His second coming again. – John 14:1-3


  1. No one knows the exact time except the father in heaven. – Matthew 24:36
  2. It will be immediately after the tribulation. – Matthew 24:29
  3. Many will not believe or care about it like in the days of Noah. – Matthew 24:37-39


The Lord is coming only for His saints. These are Christians who are faithful and are genuinely born again. Are you one of them? – 1 Thessalonians 4:14-17

Therefore as Christians we must:

  1. watch for His coming. – Matthew 24:42-44, Philippians 3:20
  2. don’t be carried away by the cares of the world. – Matthew 24:38

ACTIVITY: Is there any possibility that Jesus Christ will come back?

SUMMARY: Please stay focused. Don’t be double minded for the second coming of Jesus Christ is at hand.

CONCLUSION: God has said it and it was also foretold by His prophets while Jesus Himself had declared that His second coming is certain. Now, the question remains: “Are you prepared?”


  1. Father, thank You for the salvation of my soul.
  2. Father, don’t allow any member of my family, house fellowship or RCCG miss the second coming of Christ, in Jesus name.
  3. Lord Jesus, please send labourers to harvest souls for Your second coming.
