Hebrews 9:28 Unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.
Who are you looking for? Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people and he will appear a second time to bring salvation to those who are waiting for Him. For Christ entered Heaven itself to appear for us in God’s presence. And He will come again, for those who have the faith and are waiting for him, to bring us into the presence of God. The business of sin is over. The fullness of salvation is at hand. This is our hope! We must look to Him, then look for Him and finally, be with Him in eternity.

Charles Spurgeon Faith’s Checkbook: This is our hope. He to whom we have already looked as coming once to bear the sins of many will have another manifestation to the sons of men; this is a happy prospect in itself. But that second appearing has certain peculiar marks which glorify it exceedingly. Our Lord will have ended the business of sin. He has so taken it away from His people and so effectually borne its penalty that He will have nothing to do with it at His second coming. He will present no sin offering, for He will have utterly put sin away. Our Lord will then complete the salvation of His people. They will be finally and perfectly saved and will in every respect enjoy the fullness of that salvation. He comes not to bear the result of our transgressions but to bring the result of His obedience; not to remove our condemnation but to perfect our salvation. Our Lord thus appears only to those who look for Him. He will not be seen in this character by men whose eyes are blinded with self and sin. To them He will be a terrible Judge and nothing more. We must first look to Him and then look for Him; and in both cases our look shall be life.
