Jesus said to His disciples – “Let not your heart be troubled; ye believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto Myself, that where I am, there ye may be also.” John 14:1-3<br />
as He ascended up into the heavens, two angels also comforted the disciples hearts by saying – “Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, Who is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen Him go into heaven.” Acts 1:11
Hmmm perhaps he is already here? All these natural disasters, tsunamis earth quakes and stuff ... That could be God just parking his car.
Apparently he is not a very good driver..
apparently thats how it will go.. God says he will bring wrath and fury on the earth in the days of destruction.. to show his anger of all of the evil i suppose
that's right.. this must happen in the last days... in order for the prophesies in revelation to come true.
ES, you are soo bad!
His second coming will be at the end of the seven years of tribulation and he will defeat satan and the anti-christ. Following His return, He will rule here on earth for 1000 yrs. Previous to the time of tribulation, Christ will come for His people in what we call "The Rapture". He doesn't come to earth at that time as His people will ascend to meet Him in the air. I believe that the great judgement comes after the 1000 yr. reign of Christ.
Revelation Chapters 19-22
Nothing. What Christianity and the bible say are two different things. The bible describes the first coming of Christ. Over time as the story changed this became stories about the second coming but in the original Christanity Christ only came once.
Apparently the earth will quake, lighting will strike a mountain and jesus will crawl out of the ashes. It's actually a funny story... stupidly foolish to believe, but funny.
That no one knows the day or the hour.
The rapture and the second coming of Christ are often confused. Sometimes it is difficult to determine whether a scripture verse is referring to the rapture or the second coming. However, in studying end-times Bible prophecy, it is very important to differentiate between the two.
The rapture is when Jesus Christ returns to remove the church (all believers in Christ) from the earth. The rapture is described in 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 and 1 Corinthians 15:50-54. Believers who have died will have their bodies resurrected and, along with believers who are still living, will meet the Lord in the air. This will all occur in a moment, in a twinkling of an eye.
The second coming is when Jesus returns to defeat the Antichrist, destroy evil, and establish His millennial kingdom. The second coming is described in Revelation 19:11-16.
I guess I am a little late to reply here since this question was posted over a year ago, but I have been thinking about this and did a search and this is the best topic I found to write about it in. Like someone else here said, Jesus himself is supposed to have said when pressed about it that 'no one knows the hour or the day' and also that he will come 'like a thief in the night'. This leads me to believe he will come unexpected and unannounced, even unknown and unwanted. A thief in the night does not make a big announcement or commotion when he is going about his business, on the contrary... read into that what you like, but it makes sense to me that he would be unknown and unrecognized even while among us. He also is have supposed to have told his disciples not to think that he has come to bring peace on earth, not peace, but a sword.
