There are a lot of predictions and a lot of questions surrounding the return of Christ, but here are three things we know for sure.
1. His return is a certainty – There were over 60 major prophecies and 280 inferences to the coming of Jesus in the Old Testament. Jesus fulfilled each one of those prophecies. But here is an amazing truth – for every prophecy about the first coming of Jesus there are eight prophecies concerning his second coming. The second coming of Jesus is one of the most documented truths in scripture. You can count on it!
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. John 14:3 NIV
2. His return will be glorious and victorious – The first time Jesus came to earth, he came in weakness and vulnerability. The second time he is coming in power. The first time he displayed humility. The second time he will display his glory.
And then at last, the sign that the Son of Man is coming will appear in the heavens, and there will be deep mourning among all the peoples of the earth. And they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. Matthew 24:30 NLT
3. His return needs to be prepared for – Jesus told a story about his second coming and challenged listeners to be prepared. His return is long anticipated but is going to come suddenly like a thief in the night. Will you surrender your life to the Lordship of Jesus?
