The first prophecy and the second coming

From Koinonia House:

Enoch means “teaching” or “commencement.” He was the first of four generations of preachers. The earliest recorded prophecy was by Enoch, which amazingly enough deals with the Second Coming of Christ.

Jude 1:14-15 (NLT)
Enoch, who lived in the seventh generation after Adam, prophesied about these people. He said, “Listen! The Lord is coming with countless thousands of his holy ones to execute judgment on the people of the world. He will convict every person of all the ungodly things they have done and for all the insults that ungodly sinners have spoken against him.

Our Father in heaven,

Your Son Christ Jesus who for us men, and for our salvation, came down from heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Ghost of the Virgin Mary, and was made man, was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate, and suffered, and was buried, and the third day he rose again, according to the Scriptures, and ascended into heaven, and is seated at Your right hand.

He shall come again, with glory, to judge the quick and the dead.

We pray that the Christians of the Anglican Communion pray in the Holy Spirit, keep themselves in the love of God, and patiently wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Messiah, which will bring them into eternal life.

May they refute so as to convict some who dispute the gospel, and on those who waver and doubt, show tender mercy. Show them when and how to go after those who have gone down the wrong path. Help the Christians to love the sinners, all the while hating the sins.

O Father, help us! There is much to be done before we stand before Your Son on the day of judgment! Help us, we pray. Amen.

Jude 1:21-23
