When will Jesus Return?
When will Jesus return?
No one knows the date or time.
It may be in a few years
Or He might come back today!
The Bible says that God wants us to be ready all the time.
One day soon, the world is going to be permanently altered by an event the magnitude of which has never been seen. On a day like any other, millions of people are going to unexpectedly and unexplainedly vanish from the face of the earth.
As you can imagine, the world is going to be scrambling for answers when that happens. An explanation will come at some point afterward, but the story the world will be told will be inaccurate to say the least.
The remaining people of the world may be told alien beings came and took their loved ones away.
They may be told a natural phenomena has caused the disappearances.
The one thing they will not be told is the truth,
which is the Rapture of the Church has just occurred! The Bible reveals, in 1st
Thessalonians 4:16-17, that a day will come when ;
Matthew 25:13 tells us this event will come without any warning whatsoever: "Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh."
So, where will all the Christians be after this event takes place? In the book of Revelation, John is called away to Heaven in Revelation 4:1 when he is told to "come up hither." John, a Christian, is Raptured in this passage.
While he is in Heaven, John records events taking place, both in Heaven and on the earth, during the period of time commonly referred to as the Tribulation Period. John sees two completely different environments, as recorded in the book of Revelation.
In Heaven, John witnesses a time of celebration, worship, and praise as Jesus Christ is revealed as the Savior of the world. On earth, John records a horrible series of judgments that are taking place, the likes of which no man has ever seen nor will ever see again, as seen in Matthew 24:21.
In Heaven, John sees, as recorded in Revelation 19:7-8, the Marriage Supper of the Lamb as it takes place between the Bridegroom, Jesus, and His Bride, the Church. Since the Bride is in attendance at the wedding, we know the Bridegroom, Christ, has come to earth for His Bride. In the same manner John was told to "come up hither" in Revelation 4:1, the Church has been Raptured!
To properly understand, it's important to grasp the fact the Rapture event parallels the actions of the bridegroom in the pattern of ancient Jewish wedding tradition. In this tradition, after the engagement but before the wedding, the groom would depart to prepare a new home for his bride which was usually an addition to his father's house. The bride was kept in a state of anxious waiting pending his return which would often come at an unexpected hour, perhaps in the middle of the night as a surprise.
Considering the fact the Church is referred to as the Bride of Christ, wouldn't He have an interest in protecting the Church? Of course! We don't call Him Savior for nothing! The Church is not appointed to wrath, according to 1st Thessalonians 5:9, but to salvation through our Lord, Jesus Christ.
All these things are demonstrative of why John saw Christ's followers worshipping Him in Heaven saying, "Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen."
Have you trusted in the Savior? If not, this is the day to do so. Any moment now, the Lord Jesus Christ may call His Church away to be with Him.
If the Rapture occurs and you have not accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you will be left behind to endure the horrors of the Tribulation Period. I pray you will take this into consideration and receive Jesus Christ as your Savior before it's too late.
One thing is for SURE...
Jesus will come again and take His people home with Him to heaven.
Jesus is going to make everything new. He will make a new heaven and a new earth.
And Jesus will live there with His people.
And no one will ever cry again.
Satan tricked the first man
and woman and ever since that time...
he has tried to turn people against God.
Satan says, "What God says, doesn't matter. You can do whatever you want."
Some people believe this trick.
They lie and steal and hate eachother.
They try to forget about God.
Satan comes only to steal kill and destroy!
He wants to destroy you and me because we are the crown of God's creation!
BUT...God will win in the
God will throw Satan into hell. He has taken the keys
to death, hell, and the grave and He reigns in VICTORY!!"
Someday I will sit down with
He will put His arms around me ....
Then Jesus will say,
"I love you...I died for...and you ARE Mine!!"
Come, Lord Jesus, Come!
