The Second Coming of Christ
It is our belief that Christ will return a second time; Our Lord’s return from the heavenly realm will be personal, visible, and spectacular; it is a joyful hope for which we should keep vigilant and pray continuously. Prior to establishing His reign on earth, Jesus will return to gather His Church, an event known as the “Rapture” in the Christian community. At that point, the dead in Christ will be resurrected to life, and those who are alive will be caught up to meet the Lord in the air and be with Him for all ever.
Those who have died in Christ will be raised from the dead in a body that will be comparable to Christ’s glorified body, with their redeemed souls and spirits being joined with the body of Christ.
3This anticipation serves as a source of inspiration for leading a holy life as well as a source of consolation.
Five years after the Church has been caught up in the Rapture, Christians will be hauled before the judgment seat of Christ.
- 6This is not a judgment in which their salvation is determined, but rather a recompense for their effort on Christ’s behalf.
- 8Israel, as well as all nations, will be affected by this period of exceptional struggle.
- 9At the conclusion of the Tribulation, Jesus Christ, accompanied by the armies of heaven and the Church, will come to earth to establish the Messianic Kingdom.
- When Christ returns, Satan will be chained for a thousand years in the Lake of Fire, and the Antichrist will be tossed into the Lake of Fire.
- 13Israel will be returned to her country, and she will never be driven from it again.
- 15Because the curse that has been placed upon the world will be lifted, his dominion will be defined by material and spiritual benefits.
- Seventeenth, God will put an end to this revolt in the last battle of all time, and Satan will be cast into the lake of fire.
- 19They will be judged by Christ and hurled into the lake of fire, where they will endure ultimate and eternal torment, as well as the suffering of the living.
- A new Jerusalem will be built, as will the everlasting presence of God among all those who have repented.

Jesus’ return – the Second Coming
According to Christian belief, Jesus Christ will return at some point in the future, and when this occurs, everyone will be informed of it. His reappearance is referred to as the Second Coming. It will be a remarkable and unparalleled event in history, in stark contrast to his first appearance in Bethlehem as a defenseless infant. There are hints in the Bible about what it could be like, but there is no indication as to when it will occur. In the days leading up to his crucifixion in Jerusalem 2,000 years ago, Jesus talked of his return to the earth.
- ‘ This same Jesus who has been taken from you into heaven will return in the exact same way that you have witnessed him ascend into heaven.’ The final hours of Jesus’ earthly life also provide a hint concerning the Second Coming.
- During that time period, he was seen by more than 500 individuals.
- The ascension of Jesus is the name given to this occurrence.
- According to the book of Acts, they assured the disciples that ‘this same Jesus who has been taken from you into heaven would come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven’ would return in the same manner.
- Continue reading below.
- Jesus had warned his disciples that no one, other than God, could predict the exact moment of his return, but he also instructed them to make certain that they were always prepared in case it did.
- Christian scholars have examined passages of the Bible that talk about the future during the centuries that have followed to attempt to determine the conditions under which Jesus would return.
It is a description of a complicated, lyrical vision that John has received.
It talks not only of the present, but also of the future – including a time when the existing heavens and earth will be destroyed and replaced by a new heaven and a new earth – as well as of the present and past.
Because the old order of things has gone away, there will be no more death, sorrow, weeping, or suffering.
Others believe that all believers, even those who have died, will be immediately evacuated from the world and will join God in heaven, where they will be joined by all other Christians.
According to some interpretations, the allusion to a period of 1,000 years refers to a period of just and peaceful world leadership by the Christian church, which will be followed by a horrific apocalypse involving evil.
There is a third school of thought that holds that the symbolic events described in Revelation do not foreshadow concrete occurrences.
There are several variants on these views, but the Bible instructs Christians not to get obsessed with these events and their timing, but rather to take comfort in the confidence that Jesus will return to make all things new.
‘He will wipe away every tear from their eyes,’ says the Bible, which is virtually its final words. Because the old order of things has gone away, there will be no more death, sorrow, weeping, or suffering.
The Second Coming Has Been ‘Imminent’ for 2,000 Years
According to a 2010 Pew Research study, 58 percent of white, evangelical Christians in the United States think that Jesus Christ will return to the Earth by the year 2050. According to Pew Research, 41 percent of all Americans (not just evangelicals) believe that the Second Coming is not only true, but that it will take place by 2050 – in other words, during their lifetime. The fact that numerous past generations have thought that the world will come to an end during their lifetimes and that Christ’s return was consequently imminent is something that current Christians may not realize.
- It is possible to have several interpretations of what this verse truly implies.
- The belief of the Second Coming is the cornerstone of Christian eschatology, which is defined as the study of the “final things,” also known as the “end times” in the Bible.
- “Some would argue that Christ has already arrived, spiritually speaking,” Kyle explains.
- Then there are variances in terms of when and how to do things, as well as everything in between.”
Seven Years of Tribulation, 1,000 Years of Peace
However, it is not the only apocalyptic narrative in the Bible. The book of Revelation in the New Testament serves as the primary source of prophesies concerning the Second Coming of Christ (an “apocalypse” is a divinely revealed vision of things to come). It is likely that Jesus and his fellow Jews were also aware with the book of Daniel, which is considered to be the most apocalyptic literature in the Hebrew Bible (known to Christians as the Old Testament). Jesus’ prophesies about the end of the world, reported in the Gospel of Matthew, are combined to form the current Christian understanding of the Second Coming.
According to Daniel, the Messiah will not arrive until after a seven-year era of “tribulation,” which is a period of persecution.
In Kyle’s opinion, “anytime you have a highly despised individual in history, clearly the Hitlers and the Mussolinis, they are at the very least considered as servants of the Antichrist.” “The Antichrist is a cunning individual who first appears to be OK, but at the midway point of the seven-year tribulation period, he reveals his real colors.” According to the Book of Revelation, when Jesus comes, he and his army of angels will destroy the Antichrist and imprison Satan for a thousand years in the Lake of Fire.
During that 1,000-year time of peace, known as the Millennium (from the Latin mille, which means “thousand”), Christ himself will rule on Earth in the “Golden Age” of peace and prosperity that the Jews had long sought since the destruction of the Second Temple.
Immediately following the Millennium, Satan will be allowed to launch one more hopeless revolt before the Final Judgment.
Does the Bible Give a Time Frame for the Second Coming?
The most contentious issue in Christian eschatology is the precise date of the Second Coming of Christ. Is it more likely that Christ will return to Earth before or after the Millennium? Premillennialists are those who think that Jesus will return before the Millennium and personally preside over the 1,000 years of peace that will follow. “Postmillennialists” are those who think that Christ will return only after his Church has established a Golden Age on Earth have come to this conclusion. According to the Bible, when Jesus’ Apostles inquire regarding the time of Christ’s second coming, he famously responds, “No one knows what day or hour it will be; not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father knows” (Matthew 24:36).
- According to Kyle, throughout the first century following Jesus’ crucifixion, resurrection, and ascension into heaven, the vast majority of Christians were premillennialists, believing that his Second Coming was just around the corner.
- Even when the promised day failed to materialize, early Christian writers such as Clement of Rome and Tertullian held fast to the premillennial idea that Jesus will personally return to earth to defeat evil and reign as the foretold “King of Kings” in the future.
- Kyle explains that Augustine maintained in his most famous work, “The City of God,” that the Millennium had already begun (postmillennialism), or more correctly, that the 1,000-year rule of Christ was a “spiritual kingdom” rather than a physical kingdom, rather than a literal kingdom.
- “Throughout the Middle Ages, the Church regarded itself as performing a significant portion of,” Kyle explains.
Premillennialism Makes a Big Comeback
For over 1,500 years, Augustine’s symbolic interpretation of the Second Coming controlled the Church, but then along came a 19th-century preacher called John Nelson Darby and changed everything. The Irish reformer was certain that the Church was in ruins and that the end of the world was near. He was right. Darby discovered that God’s creation was split into seven separate years or “dispensations,” the last of which was the Millennium, based on a literal reading of the Bible’s apocalyptic prophecies, according to Darby.
Darby was known for his fiery premillennial teaching.
Darby’s imaginative interpretation of the Second Coming and the end of the world became known as “premillennial dispensationalism,” and it eventually came to dominate evangelical Christianity’s apocalyptic outlook.
According to Hal Lindsey, who wrote the book, it was one of the first to clearly relate biblical predictions of the Second Coming to contemporary world events such as the end of the Cold War and the restoration of the Jewish state of Israel.
Further evidence that the Second Coming is alive and thriving in the Christian imagination may be seen in Jerry B. Jenkins’s best-selling ” Left Behind ” trilogy, which recreated the Rapture in our own time.
Why, When and Where Will Christ Return to Earth
“And then there will be a sign from heaven, and then all of the nations of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with great power and glory,” says the Bible. In the meantime, He will dispatch His angels with a loud sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other” (Matthew 24:30–31, emphasis added).

Is it possible that Jesus will come in 2028? Do detailed charts and statistical research indicate that the year 2034 is more likely? It was via basic Google searches that I discovered these audacious forecasts. A number of years in the past have been foretold as the year of Christ’s return. These include the years 1000, 1836, 1844, 1914, 1975, and 2011. It is possible that many individuals may make predictions concerning the date of Jesus Christ’s Second Coming. But what does the Bible have to say about it?
If that’s the case, when will Jesus return?
Will Jesus return?
First and foremost, does the Bible state that Jesus Christ will return to the earth? Yes, it does—and in a variety of settings. Angels spoke to Jesus’ followers as they were standing on the Mount of Olives, watching Him ascend into heaven after His resurrection. “Men of Galilee, why are you standing here gazing up into heaven?” the angels said. It will be the same Jesus who was carried up from you into heaven who will return in the same manner in which you witnessed Him ascend into heaven.” (12 who also remarked, “Men of Galilee, why are you standing here looking up into the sky?” It will be the same Jesus who was carried up from you into heaven who will return in the same manner in which you witnessed Him ascend into heaven.” Acts 1:11).
New King James Version (NKJV)The Holy Bible, New King James Version 1982 by Thomas Nelson”>The Holy Bible, New King James Version”>Acts 1:11).
(The Signs of the Times and the Coming of the End of an Era) 3 The disciples approached Him privately as He was sitting on the Mount of Olives, asking, “Tell us, when will these things take place?” “And what will be the sign of Your coming, as well as the indication of the end of the age?” says the Lord.
- The full text of Jesus’ lengthy response may be found in Matthew 24 and 25, as well as in the parallel Gospel narratives in Mark 13 and Luke 21.
- Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud, a pillar of fire, and a dazzling display of glory.
- In that day, His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which faces Jerusalem on the eastern side of the city.
- The New King James Version (NKJV)The Holy Bible, New King James Version 1982 by Thomas Nelson”>Zechariah 14:4) is a translation of the New King James Version (NKJV).
- In the event that He does not return, we humans will obliterate ourselves: “And unless those days are shortened, no flesh will be preserved.” (22 And unless those days are shortened, no flesh will be saved; but, those days will be shortened for the sake of the elect.
Matthew 24:22, New King James Version (NKJV)The Holy Bible, New King James Version 1982 by Thomas Nelson”>The Holy Bible, New King James Version”>Matthew 24:22).
Jesus is coming soon
After saying four times, “I am coming swiftly,” Jesus gave His disciples encouragement by saying, “I am coming quickly” (Revelation 3:11; 22:7, 12, 20). His disciples can be reassured and encouraged by the assurance that He will return soon, even while they are going through difficult circumstances. God, on the other hand, is everlasting and has a whole different viewpoint on time. Can we be certain that what He calls swiftly will be what we term quickly in our day and age? Take a look at the indications He provided.
“What will be the sign of Your coming?”
Jesus astonished the disciples by saying, “Do you not see all of these things?” when they were admiring the splendid temple complex that King Herod the Great had been restoring with its gigantic stones. “I assure you that not a single stone will be left upon another in this place that will not be hurled down” (Matthew 24:2). As a result, Jesus’ followers approached Him privately on the Mount of Olives and said, “Tell us, when will these things take place? “And what will be the sign of Your coming, as well as the indication of the end of the age?” says the Lord.
- He outlined the events that must take place before to His second coming in order for the Kingdom of God to be established on the world.
- In addition, read the entries ” The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse ” and ” End Times Prophecy ” for further information.
- Awakening has not occurred, and the beginning of the Great Tribulation has not been signaled.
- 29 It will be darkened and darkened will be the moon; it will be darkened will be the stars falling from the sky, and the powers of heaven will be shattered immediately after the tribulation of those days.
- 31 His angels will be summoned with a great blast of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from all four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
NKJV, New King James Version, The Holy Bible, New King James Version, published in 1982 by Thomas Nelson”>1 Corinthians 15:52;Seventh Trumpet: The Kingdom of Heaven is Announced 15 The seventh angel then sounded, and it said: Also in the heavens, there were thunderous exclamations: “The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, who is to reign for all eternity!” New King James Version (NKJV)The Holy Bible, New King James Version 1982 by Thomas Nelson”>Revelation 11:15)The Holy Bible, New King James Version 1982 by Thomas Nelson”>Revelation 11:15).
There is no biblical support for the belief that Christ will appear in secret just before the period of tribulation begins.
(See the article “Will There Be a Secret Rapture?” for more information.) Until the beginning of the Great Tribulation era, we may be certain that Christ’s return is at least 312 years away.
And they will walk on the holy city for a period of forty-two months after that.
The Holy Bible, New King James Version (NKJV) was published in 1982 by Thomas Nelson and is found at 12:14 in the New King James Version.
Jesus said no one knows the day or the hour
Beyond that, however, we are unable to predict with certainty when Jesus will return. In his teachings to his students and to us, Jesus stated: “But of that day and hour, no one knows, not even angels in heaven, but My Father alone.” (No One Knows the Day or Hour36 “However, no one knows the day or hour of that day or hour, not even the angels of heaven, but only My Father. Matthew 24:36 (New King James Version (NKJV)The Holy Bible, New King James Version 1982 by Thomas Nelson”>Matthew 24:36 (New King James Version (NKJV)The Holy Bible, New King James Version 1982 by Thomas Nelson”>Matthew 24:36 (New King James Version (NKJV)The Holy Bible, New King James Version 1982 by Thomas Nelson”>Matthew 24:36 (New King James Version (NK We won’t be able to tell you the precise time.
He does not want us to know what he is up to.
The other extreme: Where is the promise of His coming?
When bogus preachers forecast specific dates for the end of the world on a consistent basis, it only serves to increase the amusement and cynicism of many people. It’s not difficult to see why so many people do not believe in Christ’s return in any way. According to Peter, scoffers will appear in the end days, asking things like, “Where is the promise of His appearing?” Because, since the fathers have fallen asleep, everything has continued as it has since the beginning of time” (4 and asking, “Where is the promise of His coming?”).
What should we be doing now?
We should not let the fact that we do not know when Jesus will come diminish our sense of urgency and purpose. Jesus forewarned us not to follow in the footsteps of the people who lived during Noah’s time. The advent of the Son of Man will be like the days before the flood, when people were feasting and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day Noah entered the ark, and they were completely unaware of what was about to happen until the flood came and carried them all away. (38 For just as they were feasting and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah boarded the ark39, and they were completely unaware of what was happening until the flood came and swept them all away, so will the coming of the Son of Man be.
“If one of my servants says in his heart, ‘My master is delaying the coming of his servant,’ and then begins to beat his fellow servants and eat and drink with the drunkards, the master of that servant will come on a day and at an hour that that servant is not aware of” (48), the master will come on the day and at the hour that the servant is not aware of.
As a substitute, we might emulate the obedient and intelligent servant whom Jesus praised, “whom his master appointed as ruler over his family, to provide them with food in season.” (There are two types of servants: the faithful servant and the evil servant.) 45 “Who, therefore, is a loyal and intelligent servant, whom his master appointed as ruler over his household, to ensure that they get food in season?” The Holy Bible, New King James Version (NKJV) was published in 1982 by Thomas Nelson and is known as the New King James Version (NKJV) “Verse 45 (in the King James Version).
“Blessed is the servant who, when his master returns, will find himself in this state.
47 I can assure you that he will elevate him to the position of king over all of his possessions. The Holy Bible, New King James Version (NKJV) was published in 1982 by Thomas Nelson and is known as the New King James Version (NKJV) “Those passages 46-47).
Preparing for the second coming
So, what can we do to make the most of the time we have left until Jesus Christ returns? Here are a some of the things He instructs us to carry out:
- Allowing society’s lawlessness to undermine our love for God, His law, and other people (12 And since lawlessness will flourish, many people’s love for God and His law will become chilly
- “The Holy Bible, New King James Version 1982 by Thomas Nelson”>verse 12)
- Suffer through trials and persecutions to the end (13 But he who endures to the end will be saved
- Through the power of God’s Holy Spirit, the New King James Version (NKJV)The Holy Bible, New King James Version (Thomson Nelson, 1982) verse 13) is made possible. Contribute to the endeavor to proclaim the good news of God’s Kingdom in the latter days (14). It will be proclaimed in every nation as a witness to all peoples, and then the end will come. The Holy Bible, New King James Version (NKJV)The Holy Bible, New King James Version 1982 by Thomas Nelson”>verse 14)
- Don’t become lax and lazy and be influenced by the world (38 For just as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark,39 and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man
- Be helping and treating others in a loving way, not taking advantage of them (verses 38-39 of the New King James Version (NKJV)The Holy Bible, New King James Version 1982 by Thomas Nelson”>The Holy Bible, New King James Version 1982 by Thomas Nelson”> He will make him the ruler over all of his possessions, I guarantee you that. 48 However, if that bad servant says in his heart, “My lord is delaying his coming,” (New King James Version (NKJV)The Holy Bible, New King James Version 1982 by Thomas Nelson”>verses 46-48), he will be punished accordingly.
- (Matthew 25:1-13) Prepare and have a sufficient supply of spiritual oil, also known as the Holy Spirit. Make faithful use of what we have been given in order to grow spiritually (verses 14-30)
- Even those we would perceive to be the least of our concerns should be served and given to (verses 31-46). Keep an eye on world events in light of the prophetic signals provided by the Bible, as well as our own spiritual condition. (36 As a result, keep your eyes peeled and your prayers constant in order to be deemed worthy of escaping all of the events that will transpire and of standing before Jesus Christ.” New King James Version (NKJV)The Holy Bible, New King James Version 1982 by Thomas Nelson”>Luke 21:36)
- “Pray continually that you may be deemed worthy to escape all of these things that will come to occur, and to stand before the Son of Man” (Luke 21:36). (36 Therefore, keep watch and pray constantly so that you may be counted worthy to escape all of the events that will take place and to stand before the Son of Man.”
- New King James Version (NKJV)The Holy Bible, New King James Version 1982 by Thomas Nelson”>Luke 21:36)
Why has Jesus’ return taken so long?
What has caused Christ’s return to be so late in coming? Why have generations of Christians waited patiently yet have not yet gotten the fulfillment of their hopes and dreams? “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance,” says Peter. “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness,” says Peter. “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any

When Is Jesus Coming Back? Is it Soon?
In one popular argument to Christianity, non-Christians assert that because Christians think Jesus is returning soon and that He has not returned, it follows that He will not return at all. Today, many people associate the phrase “coming soon” with the act of driving through the drive-thru at their favorite fast-food restaurant. They thus believe that Jesus will return in a short period of time when asked the question “Is Jesus coming back soon?” When Jesus talked of His return, He used the word “soon” rather than the word “immediately,” implying that He would return in the near future.
“Come, Lord Jesus,” the choir sings.
When Is the ‘Soon’ for Jesus’ Return
The Greek word for “soon” is tachu, which may be rendered as “as soon as possible” or “without undue delay.” Throughout the New Testament, the word tachu is most frequently used in the Book of Revelation (Revelation 2:16; 3:11; 11:14; 22:7,12,20). By “soon,” we mean that the sovereign events of history have been put in action, ensuring that Christ’s coming will take place without any additional delay. Thus, history is progressing in accordance with God’s schedule, who is in complete command of the entire historical narrative.
Speaking about Christ’s second coming, Peter writes in 2 Peter 3:9 that the Lord is not slow to fulfill his word as some regard it as such, but is patient with you, not desiring for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.
The Lord Jesus’ return is imminent — in the sense that the plan of God is progressing and is only being postponed so that the elect may be rescued (Romans 8:29;Ephesians 1:5).
The Return of the Lord Jesus Is Imminent
This means that the Lord Jesus’ return is not only impending, as we must comprehend, but it is also immediate in the sense that it might occur at any time. The apostles even speculated that the Lord Jesus’ return would occur within their lifetime, referring to the Lord Jesus’ return as occurring in the end days (1 Corinthians 10:11; 1 Peter 1:20; Hebrews 1:2), and urging the people of God to be prepared and on the lookout for signs and wonders. Because Jesus employed the language of being “ready,” He means for the people of God to think that He is about to return at any moment (Luke 12:40; 21:34-36;Mark 13:33).
- Jesus desires that every generation live in the consciousness that He may visit unexpectedly and that all individuals will be required to give an account of how they will locate them when He does.
- In Acts 1:7, Jesus reiterates the teachings of Matthew 24:36, in which he tells the disciples, “It is not for you to know the times or seasons which the Father has determined by his own power.” Jesus said this when the disciples inquired as to whether or not He intended to rebuild Israel.
- Anyone who believes in Christ is able to predict when He will return, because Scripture is quiet on the specific day and time of His return.
- Christians, on the other hand, are instructed to “.remain alert, for you do not know on when day your Lord will come” (Matthew 24:42).
- According to the teachings of Matthew 24:36-44, no one can predict the day or time of the Lord Jesus’ second coming.
- Despite the fact that several dates have been offered, all of them have been and will continue to be incorrect.
- It is reasonable to conclude from Matthew 24:36 and Acts 1:7 that God does not wish for Christians to calculate the precise day or hour of Christ’s return, and that anybody who attempts to do so is deceived by the Scriptures.
What is essential is that the people of God live their lives in light of the Lord Jesus’ approaching return to earth (2 Timothy 4:8).
The Second Coming of the Lord Jesus
The Second Coming of the Lord Jesus is referenced 1,500 times in the Old Testament, and one out of every twenty-five verses in the New Testament makes reference to the Lord Jesus’ Second Coming, which is a significant number. When it states in Amos 3:7, “For the Lord God does nothing but reveal his secret to his servants the prophets,” this passage draws attention to this topic. What Amos says is important because it helps Christians comprehend that the return of Christ heralds the establishment of God’s Kingdom, which is defined as God’s total authority over all of His creation.
- The book of Revelation 19:11-16 describes how the Lord will be prepared for battle, and how the nations will gather to fight against the city of Jerusalem.
- Furthermore, this will be the day that the Bible predicts in Revelation 19:6-7, when the enemies of God, including the Antichrist and the false prophet, will be completely vanquished (Revelation 19:20).
- Jesus will judge those who are living at the time of His Second Coming as part of the process of establishing His Kingdom.
- A thousand years of peace will be enjoyed by those who survive this judgment as a result of their trust in Jesus Christ.
- (Matthew 25:41).
- In addition, there will be a resurrection of all Christians (Revelation 20:4-6).
- At the conclusion of the thousand-year period, Satan will be freed, and a final fight will take place, which will be conquered by the Lord Jesus Christ on the spot (Revelation 20:7-9).
- Then there will be a second resurrection, followed by another judgment.
Two Different Eternities
There are two eternal fates, one with the Lord Jesus and one without Him, as a result of the Lord Jesus’ return being a reality (Malachi 4:1-2). When the Lord Jesus returns, evil will be destroyed, the planet will be restored, and the Lord will triumph! If you believe in the first coming of the Lord Jesus, your response to his return will reveal whether or not you believe in the second coming of the Lord Jesus. Christian believers have a great hope in that they will not only be admitted to heaven, but that they will also be with the Lord Jesus for all of eternity in heaven.
Your response, dear reader, to the topic “Is Jesus Coming Back Soon?” is critical because it expresses your understanding of the Lord Jesus’ first coming as well as your understanding of His finished and adequate work.
We Are Not Promised Tomorrow
We cannot guarantee tomorrow, and the Lord knows not just the number of hairs on your head or the content of your thoughts at any one time, but also the length of all of your days. God longs for your repentance, for you to turn back to Him, and for you to put your confidence in Christ – because Jesus is mighty to save by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone — and that is why He sent His Son to die for you. You must not cower in fear, but instead must stand firm on the Lord Jesus and proclaim the glory of Christ to everyone.
Will Jesus Really Return to Earth?
As Christians, we gladly proclaim that Jesus Christ will, in fact, return to the world again and again. It’s critical for us to remember that Jesus Himself stated that He will return to the world at some point. His disciples gathered on the Mount of Olives when He spoke to them, and He promised them that He would come in might and great splendor. According to the angels, Jesus Christ would return. As mentioned in Acts Chapter 1, when Jesus ascends to His Father, angels appear and proclaim, “He will return in the same manner that He has gone.” When you look at church history, one of the intriguing things you will see is that, although though various Christians throughout church history have had diverse viewpoints on the end of time, they have always agreed on some fundamental truths concerning the end of the world.
- And one of them was the belief that Jesus Christ will return to the planet.
- It is the belief that Jesus Christ will physically return to the planet.
- And, finally, that Jesus Christ will bring about a restoration and a fresh beginning in the world.
- All of these considerations are critical.
- It’s even a part of the Apostles’ Creed, which was written in the fourth century.
- He will then return to judge both the living and the dead once His time on earth is through.
- Is it possible that Jesus will return?
- Not unwillingly because we believe, “Oh, He’s going to return,” but joyously, we as Christians proclaim this truth.
Even so, come, Lord Jesus, since Jesus Christ will truly return. Credit: iStock/Getty Images Plus/Tinnakorn for the photo. Jorruang Dave Jenkins and his wife, Sarah Jenkins, are in a happy marriage. He is a writer, editor, and public speaker who resides in the lovely state of Oregon.

Second Coming of Jesus Christ
The second coming is on the horizon. It is true that Jesus told His disciples that He will return one more time. “Do not let your heart be worried,” the Bible states in John 14:1-3. There are many mansions in My Father’s home; if this were not the case, I would have informed you. I’m going to go set up a space for you. Moreover, if I depart to make a place for you, I will return to take you into Myself, so that where I am, you may be as well.”

When is Jesus coming back?
Jesus will return in a short period of time. No one, however, is certain of the precise hour when Jesus will appear again. The Bible says in Mark 13:32, “But no one knows when day or hour it will be; not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father knows.” It’s interesting to note that the disciples asked Jesus the same question right before He ascended to the Father’s presence. At that point, Jesus informed them that it was not their responsibility to know the times or seasons that were under the jurisdiction of the Father.
As a result, what does this mean for you and me is unclear.
Keep an eye on Jesus and keep your attention on him because the devil is attempting to divert mankind’s attention away from the indications and the nearness of Jesus’ return.
Why is Jesus taking so long to come back?
When Jesus returns, He will do it with patience, because He wants to give humanity the greatest amount of time possible to select and follow Him. Jesus desires that as many people as possible repent and follow Him to the heavenly kingdom. According to 2 Peter 3:8-9, “However, dear, do not forget this one thing: that with the Lord, one day is equal to a thousand years, and a thousand years are equal to one day.” When it comes to His promise, the Lord is not slack as some believe, but is patient with us, not wanting any to perish but wanting everyone to come to repentance.” Additional materials can be found at: Topics related to the Bible Questions about the Bible Signs of the Second Coming of Jesus What is the meaning of the rapture?

Warnings about the second coming of Jesus?
There are a slew of confused non-biblical views concerning the second coming of Christ that are causing confusion among many believers. Will He merely present spiritually to a small number of people? Will Jesus’ second coming take place exclusively in specific geographical locations? Is it possible that Jesus will emerge in the desert? Deceptions will be perpetrated in the final days, according to Jesus.
In fact, in Matthew 24:4-5, Jesus warns Christians not to be mislead by those who come in the name of Jesus and claim to be the Christ of the New Testament. As a result, the Bible is the sole source of information we can rely on for answers.
Will Jesus come back secretly?
Many people wonder how many people will see Jesus’ return when He comes. Christ’s second coming will be a dazzling display of color, sound, and splendor. This event will not be hidden; every person on the Earth will be able to see Jesus. He will return, both personally and metaphorically. “Behold, He is coming with clouds, and every eye will see Him,” the Bible states in Revelation 1:7. There will not be a single person on the face of the globe who is oblivious of Jesus’ imminent coming. The way in which Jesus will appear is described by Him Himself.
The return of Jesus is described in verses 30 and 31 of the same chapter as being accompanied by tremendous power and splendor, as well as the sound of a huge trumpet, which wakes the righteous dead, who are then collected from all corners of the globe.
How should we live while we wait?
Christians should remain on high alert, keeping watch and praying until the coming of the Lord. “But take watch to yourselves, lest your hearts be burdened down with carousing, drunkenness, and the concerns of this life, and that Day come upon you suddenly,” the Bible states in Luke 21:34-36. Because it will act as a trap for everyone who lives anywhere on the face of the entire planet. As a result, keep your eyes peeled and your prayers constant in order to be deemed worthy of escaping all of the events that will transpire and of standing before Jesus Christ.”
How will Jesus come back?
We know that Jesus’ second coming will be a literal occurrence, and that it will be exactly like the first time He departed to heaven. When He had finished speaking, while they were looking on, He was taken up into the clouds out of their sight, as recorded in Acts 1:9-11: “Now when He had finished speaking these things, while they were looking on, He was taken up into a cloud out of their sight, and a cloud received Him out of their sight.” And while He was ascending, two men in white robes approached them and said, ‘Men of Galilee, why are you standing here looking up into heaven?’ It will be exactly the same Jesus who was carried up from you into heaven who will return in the identical manner in which you witnessed Him ascend into heaven.”
Will the angels come back with Jesus?
Those who have died in Christ, according to the Bible, will be gathered from all across the world when the angels return with Jesus and the sound of the trumpet heralds their arrival. – (Matthew 16:27, 24:31, and 25:31)
What happens to the righteous at the second coming?
Righteous dead will be brought to life and transported to heaven with the righteous who are still living on the earth at the time of Jesus’ second coming, according to the Bible. ‘For the Lord Himself will come down from heaven with a mighty cry, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God,’ says 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17.
And the first to rise will be those who have died in Christ. Afterwards, we who are alive and still living will be taken up with them in the clouds, where we will be with the Lord in the air. As a result, we will be with the Lord at all times.”
Are the wicked destroyed by Christ’s coming?
It is predicted that when Jesus returns to earth, the wicked who are still living would cry out for the rocks and mountains to fall on them because they will be unable to gaze at the face of the Savior (Revelation 6:15-17). As a result of their refusal to acknowledge God or embrace the message of the Lord Jesus Christ, the wicked shall be annihilated with eternal ruin (2 Thessalonians 1:7-10).
When will we get immortal bodies?
After being turned into eternal bodies at the moment of Jesus’ second coming, or at the sound of the final trump, the mortal bodies of the redeemed will be altered once more. According to 1 Corinthians 15:52-53, “in a flash, in the blink of an eye, at the sound of the final trumpet.” Because the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be resurrected incorruptible, and we will be changed as a result of that. Because this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality,” says the author.
Why is Jesus coming back?
According to the Bible, Jesus will return to earth to reward the inhabitants of the planet and to take many of them back to heaven with Him (Revelation 22:12). “Then the King will say to them on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world,'” according to Matthew 25:34. Jesus, above all else, longs to spend time with you and your family. He invites you to return with Him to paradise, where you will be able to spend an eternity free of tears, anguish, and suffering.
So, what is it that prevents you from placing Him first in your life?
