In the Revelation of Jesus Christ, chapter 19 depicts the Second Coming like this:
Re 19:11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. 12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
But in Hosea, we read that he will come to us as the latter rain!
Ho 6:1 Come, and let us return unto the LORD: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up.
2 After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.
3 Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.
Joe 2:23 Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.
28 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:
29 And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.
So, we need to consider two comings of the Lord, one spiritual, and one physical or literal.
Hosea also tells us that this happens in the third day. Prophetically the third day is the third 1000-year period since Jesus first came and the 7th 1000-year period since Adam. This puts us in the seventh millennium or Sabbath Rest of the Lord. Earlier we said that tabernacles points to this seventh millennium.
So then, Moses return on the Day of Atonement is a prophetic picture of the spiritual coming of the Lord during the 7th millennium. Ezekiel 36:27 says And I will put my spirit within you, [this is a spiritual coming] and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them. And this spiritual coming brings the new covenant with it. This is what it takes to make a believer become a totally willing and obedient servant.
Other places in the scripture tell about the people being willing. Notably Judges 5:1-5 and Psalm 110 which alludes to the third day as the Day of thy Power.
Ps 110:3 Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth.
Also compare Hosea 6:1-2 with this passage in Jeremiah 32, the same chapter we cited above concerning the new covenant.
Jer 32:42 For thus saith the LORD; Like as I have brought all this great evil upon this people, so will I bring upon them all the good that I have promised them.
Earlier we said that our two themes are The Revelation of Jesus Christ and End Time Revival and Harvest. Well so far have we gotten two out of three. The coming of the Lord as the latter rain establishes the second covenant by putting his Spirit within us.
It brings the Glory of God to his people and creates the Fear of the Lord within them. This is nothing less than the Revelation of Jesus Christ and it is End Time Revival. Since we become totally obedient servants of our King Jesus, it is also the Kingdom of God in its fullness.
You can find other examples of how the Revelation of Jesus Christ transforms someone into a totally obedient servant, Isaiah 6 for example. The most notable of these is what happened to a man named Saul of Tarsus on the road to Damascus.
