The Second Coming Of Jesus.
When You Suffer from pain or grief - when you see all the terrible things happening in the world - don't you wish that somehow, this world could just end ?
From the time this perfect world was suddenly plunged into darkness because of sin, men and women have longed and yearned for deliverance - for an end to the misery of living in a sinful world.
The good news is that the Bible clearly promises that Jesus IS going to come back soon to our Earth and put an end to all the suffering and tears and death.
The return of Jesus in person will be beginning of living forever, for those who have chosen Him as their Saviour and Lord.
Just before Jesus left this Earth to return to Heaven, He made a great promise give to His followers which is," I will come back and take my followers to Myself ". Jesus has PROMISED to return to Earth again . And His promises never fail.
What the Bible call Christ's return is " Blessed Hope". Ever since Jesus left our Earth, the promise of His return has been the " the blessed hope" of every one of His followers.
During His trial, what He said to the high priest, He said," From this time on you will see the son of man sitting on the right hand of God coming on the clouds of Heaven." The Bible refers to the second coming of Jesus more than 1,500 times. In the New Testament, an average of one verse of every 21 speaks of His return.
He will not return in secret .Everyone will see Him. Everyone on Earth will see Jesus return. They will see Him with their own eyes !
The return of Jesus will not be silent. There will be shout of command. A shout, an Angel's voice, a trumpet - this is no "secret " or quiet return !
How the second coming will look like is amazing and what people will see is lightening that flashes from the East to the West. Bright and glorious - visible from horizon to horizon. What a spectacular event this will be!
The wonderful event that will take place when Jesus returns is," the dead will be raised and no more death. " Imagine the joy when those who have died trusting in Jesus are resurrected to life again - and are reunited with those they love!
What will happen to those of Christ's followers who are alive when He returns is," they will gathered up along with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. If we who believe in Jesus are alive when He returns, we will be taken up into the cloud to meet Him - and to be reunited with those who have just been resurrected from the dead.
What the wicked will do who are alive when Jesus returns is," They will hid themselves in caves and under rocks on the mountains. " The wicked will get their wish. They will be slain as Jesus returns.
How we can know when the return of Jesus is near is, " There will be awful horror things in the world. Deceitful things in the world. In this chapter, Jesus gave a long list of signs that would signal the nearness of His return. As you compare this chapter with the world around you, there is no doubt that Christ's return is indeed very near.
