The Return of Jesus

“Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the great and awesome day of the LORD comes.”  Malachi 4:5

Lots of people doubt that Jesus Christ is ever going to return to the this earth.  What about you?  Those doubters don’t realize how much of the Bible refers to Christ’s return.  The entire Old Testament is filled with prophecies of the coming Deliverer – at least 333 distinct promises by one count. 

What about the New Testament?  Jesus himself pointed to His second coming as the time when He would assume the throne of Glory.  “When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory.”  Matthew 25:31   Even the Old Testament affirms that in Jeremiah 23:5. “Behold the days are coming, says the LORD, that I will raise up to David a Branch of righteousness; a King shall reign and prosper, and execute judgment and righteousness in the earth.”   In other words, Christ is going to return to establish that kingdom here on earth.

Are you ready for Christ’s coming?  Have you laid down your selfishness and independent spirit and chosen to “take up your Cross and follow Jesus?”  Jesus said, “Repent for the kingdom of God is near.”

God’s kingdom is nearer than you think, ask God to open your eyes to see it and to give you the faith to believe and embrace Him with all your heart.
