Second Coming of Jesus Christ
No one knows when is the second coming of Jesus Christ. It is plagued by many false teachings. Many prediction books have even been written saying the exact day when Jesus’ return is going to happen. These books mislead a lot of people and they may even sell a lot of copies as we all welcome all these hype too soon.
But one thing is certain : When someone predicts the day or time of Jesus Christ’s second coming, it is wrong in itself. Do you know why? Because only God the Father knows when the second Coming of Jesus will happen – Yes, even Jesus doesn’t know when this second coming is going to happen.
Jesus told His disciples: “No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” “Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding with the hand mill; one will be taken and the other left.” “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come.” (Matthew 24:36, 40 & 42)
We should keep watch
We can either stay idle and simply wait for Jesus coming but that is not Jesus expects from us. Jesus wants us to “keep watch.” This is done by knowing what the Bible reveals about upcoming events and comparing those to what we is happening these days, around the globe. 100 biblical passages discuss the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.
S – Sudden :
Only Father knows the correct time. And its to happen very suddenly, quickly – just as a lightning flash on sky. Matthew 24:27 says, “For as lightning that comes from the east is visible even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.”
E – Essential :
Second coming of Jesus Christ is one of the main pillars of Christian faith. When the time is ripe, Jesus The King is to come again in all the glory for the final judgement.
C – Christ’s Final Judgement :
As Bible says Jesus will be the final judge of the world (John 5:22, Acts 10:42 and 2Timothy 4:1). Some of the additional verses describing the second coming, resurrection of the dead, millennium, and final judgment are located in Acts 17:31, 1Thessalonians 4:13-5:11 and Hebrews 10:27.
O – Obvious :
Billions of people live on Earth. Only God knows what percentage are true Christians. So will the other 600,000,000 people vanish from the earth simultaneously according to Matthew 24:40? All others except Christians, are they going to perish?
The condemnation applies only to people who have had the Gospel presented to them, so that they fully understand the ideas, and then they reject it anyway. If they have never heard it, they are not condemned. And if they don’t understand it, they are not condemned. Each religion has its set of laws, laws for the good of humanity. People who follow those, are indeed following the same principles of Christ’s teachings and in a way they are also Christians.
No one knows when the second coming is to happen. In Matthew 24:36, Jesus said only God the Father knows when. God is outside time. God already knows every prediction regarding Jesus’ return that has ever been or will ever be made. Since Jesus said that no one knows about that day but the Father, its simple, NO ONE REALLY KNOWS!
As the second coming of Jesus Christ closes in on us, by that time, there will be increasing and widespread doubt about whether Jesus was even real. People will start wondering if God really exists and many believers will leave the Christian faith (2 Thessalonians 2:1-4, 1 Timothy 4:1-2, and 2 Peter 2:1-3). Do you think we’re already seeing these signs?
