JESUS Return

This is a Bible study on JESUS' Return.     Click here for a printable Bible Study Guide.

 

 

And there was a cloud that overshadowed them: and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.  And suddenly, when they had looked round about, they saw no man any more, save Jesus only with themselves.  Mark 9:7-8

And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.  1 John 5:20

 


Please Note:  The Scriptures tell us that there is not enough room in the whole universe to hold all books it would take to tell all about the life, the miracles, the wonder of Jesus. 

No website can contain all of the wonder of Jesus, the work of Jesus, the miracles of Jesus.  We answer questions in this website to ignite a fire in your own spirit to dig deeper in God's word, to encounter Jesus personally, to establish and grow a relationship with Jesus yourself by knowing more.

It is the purpose of this website to point everyone to Jesus, direct them to seek Jesus, encourage others to know Jesus, and to ultimately have a lasting saving relationship with the King of kings, the Lord of lords, the risen Christ, the Son of God - Christ Jesus our LORD.


 


Jesus is Returning

Jesus is returning soon.  Jesus promised to return in Scripture.

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

 

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you.  Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.  Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you.  If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.  John 14:27-28

God cannot lie.  The word of God does not lie.  Every thing spoken by God in His world has been fulfilled, or will soon be fulfilled.  God keeps all of His promises.

 


Has Jesus already returned?

The word of God tells us that one day Jesus will return

Some people falsely claim that Jesus has already returned.

Some people falsely claim that they are Jesus.

Let's look at what God says...

 

The return of Jesus

How do we know that Jesus will return to earth one day?  

We know because God promised us the return of Jesus, and as we know, God has never and can never break his promises.

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

Jesus promised the He would return and gather all His followers, that are left, and take us all who believe in Him to be with Him forever in Heaven.

Over and over again in the Holy scriptures, the word of God, Jesus promises to return.

Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you.  If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.  John 14:28

 

Why is Jesus' return called the Second Coming?

Because it is the second time Jesus came to earth.

So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.  Hebrews 9:28

 


Why hasn't Jesus already returned?

Jesus has not returned yet, because I didn't see Him return.  God tells us in His word, that every eye shall see Jesus when he returns.

Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.  Revelation 1:7

How can everyone in the world see Jesus Christ's return?  Simple, He is the God Almighty.

I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.  Revelation 1:8

For more information see - SECOND COMING

 


Who claim to be Christ returned?

 

The disciples of Jesus asked Him what sign will there be of His return, His second coming, and the end of the world.

And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?  Matthew 24:3

Jesus told His disciples to be prepared that no one deceives you, and that many people will show up, falsely claiming to be Him and even say that they are the Christ, and that many people who do not know the truth will believe them.

And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.  For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.  Matthew 24:4-5

And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you:  For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.  Mark 13:5-6

And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them.  Luke 21:8

 

False Christs

Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.  For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.  Matthew 24:23-24

And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ; or, lo, he is there; believe him not:  For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.  Mark 13:21-22

The word of God tells us in the last days, people will say, 'Hey come over here, the Christ is here' , but we are NOT to believe them, because they are false Christs and they will be everywhere.

Who will believe them?  Well, the scriptures say - these false Christs will deceive the very elect.  Believers of the true Christ are the very elect.  (I find this scripture moving, because I am one of the elect.)

This tells me that in the last days, which we are living in right now, even we as believers should be extra careful and mindful to keep focused on the true Christ and fill ourselves with the word of God to give us strength and power, to overcome the lies and deception that are soon to come.

God tells us in His word that we are to GO NOT FORTH, that we are NOT to go and see the claims of these false Christs.

Behold, I have told you before.  Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.  Matthew 24:25-26

Don't go see the false Christs and do NOT believe any of it.

How do I know that Christ Jesus has NOT already returned? 

I know that Christ Jesus has NOT already returned because I have not seen Him return, and I'm still here. 

I know Christ Jesus has not returned because I know, as a true believer of the true Christ, the return of Christ will be spectacular with lightning and thunder and I personally will see this happen.  The scriptures of God say that "every eye shall see" Christ's return in the Heavens.

Jesus Christ, the Son of God, will come to earth the second time in the clouds of heaven with power and glory and every eye shall see him.

For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.  And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.  Matthew 24:27,30

For more information see - SECOND COMING

 


What are we to do before Jesus returns?

 

 

Wait.

Waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 1:7).

 

 

 

 

 

Watch.

Believers watch for the coming of their Lord Jesus Christ.

Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.  Matthew 24:42

Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
Matthew 25:13

Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning:  Mark 13:35

And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.  Mark 13:37

Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.  Luke 21:36

Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong.  1 Corinthians 16:13

But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.  1 Peter 4:7

 

Pray.

Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.  Mark 13:33

Pray without ceasing.  1 Thessalonians 5:17

Watch ye and pray, lest ye enter into temptation.  The spirit truly is ready, but the flesh is weak.  Mark 14:38

 

Be blameless.

Be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 1:8).

And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.  1 Thessalonians 5:23

We can be unblameable in holiness before God at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ if we remain in Christ (1 Thessalonians 3:13). 

If we step outside into this world and separate ourselves from Christ, if we abandon the truth of Christ for the lies of the world, then we are no longer abiding in Christ and we are no longer remaining unblameable in holiness. 

Through the power of Christ Jesus, by remaining under His power, submitted to God, surrendered to Jesus, we can remain blameless until He returns.

We remain blameless by departing from sin, separating from sin and immoral ideals of the world.  We are to align ourselves with Christ, not this world (2 Thessalonians 3:6; 1 Timothy 6:14; 1 John 2:16).  We are to be in the world, but not of the world, just as Jesus (John 15:19; 17:14, 16).

 

Look up.

Believers look up to the heavens for the Savior, our Lord Jesus is coming soon.

For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:  Philippians 3:20

Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.  Jude 1:21

 

Hope.

Our Hope is in the Lord Jesus Christ (1 Thessalonians 1:3; 2:19; 2 Thessalonians 2:16; 1 Timothy 1:1; 1 Peter 1:3).

 

Glorify Jesus.

That the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and ye in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.  2 Thessalonians 1:12

 

Remain Steadfast.

Remain steadfast, steady, established in Christ, unmovable, not shaken, not troubled, remain strong in the Lord Jesus.

Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, that ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as the day of Christ is at hand.  Let no man deceive you...    2 Thessalonians 2:1-3

Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.  Revelation 3:11

Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.  Revelation 22:7

 

Be Fruitful.

We are to be fruitful, produce good fruit, for the kingdom of God.  We are able to be fruitful because of the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ (2 Peter 1:8).

 

Maintain Good works

Believers of Jesus Christ have obligations and responsibilities to God.  All believers serve God through Christ Jesus.

Works do not save anyone, but works are a product of genuine salvation.  Because salvation is not obtained by works does not release us from obligations to God but allows us to serve and maintain good works that are acceptable to God (Matthew 5:16; Ephesians 2:10; 1 Timothy 6:18; 2 Timothy 3:17; Titus 2:7, 14, 3:8, 14; Hebrews 10:24; 1 Peter 2:12.

This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed in God might be careful to maintain good works.  These things are good and profitable unto men.  Titus 3:8

 

Keep yourselves.

As we are God's children by faith in Christ Jesus, God gifts us His protection, His grace, His mercy and His salvation, but we are to keep ourselves in the love of God through abiding in Christ.

We are to keep ourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life (Jude 1:21).

We are to guard our faith, renew our spirit, examining ourselves, keep ourselves away from sin (Psalm 37:27), do no evil, prove ourselves by the power of Jesus that is in us (2 Corinthians 13:5).

 

Grow.

We are never to stop learning, growing in the faith, in the grace of Jesus, in the knowledge of Jesus, and in the love of God.

But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever.  Amen.  2 Peter 3:18

 

 

 

Share our testimony. 

Believers of the Lord Jesus Christ share Jesus

Ye are the light of the world.  A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.  Matthew 5:14

Though salvation we receive Jesus as our Lord and Savior, the Light of Jesus cannot be hid because He shines too bright. Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven  -Matthew 5:16.

We are to share what we know about Jesus, share what we have in Christ Jesus to this world.  We are to go out and witness, give our testimony, let others see Jesus in us.

But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:  Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.  1 Peter 3:15-16

 

Jesus is returning.

Jesus is returning very soon.  Are you ready?

You can get ready today by asking Jesus into your heart to be your personal Lord and Savior.

For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.  Romans 10:13
