    Why do the Reformed “watch” for the Second Coming rather than the Rapture? Everyone who follows Reformed/Covenant Theology believes that there is, and has always been, only one people of God. They believe that Israel was the Church in the Old Testament, and the Church is Israel in the New Testament. The question then remains, when did the Church begin? Did the Church begin on the day of Pentecost?

    Repeatedly the Lord told His disciples to “watch” for His coming in power and great glory to establish His kingdom on earth. However, in the Epistles, the Church is not told to watch for Christ’s Second Coming but instead to look for the coming of the Lord Jesus in the clouds to take us to glory. ( 1 Thess. 4:13-18).

    For Israel, Christ’s coming will be visible, bodily, and to the earth ( Zech. 14:3-4; Acts 1:11; Deut. 30:1-8; Jer. 23:7,8; Matthew 24:31). Every eye shall see Him ( Rev.1:7).
