Jesus is Coming
Jesus is coming
Witnesses to Christ’s ascension were promised:
“This same Jesus who has been taken from you into heaven, will
come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.”
Believers, traveling in the footsteps of Jesus, face the human aging process. During the late stages of walking in “The Way”, strides shift to shuffles. Near the journey’s end, stumbles signal slippage into a deep sleep—and silence. The next sound is the voice of the coming King, calling home the faithful who walked the living trail.

“But mark this: there will be terrible trouble in the last days.
People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful,
proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy,
without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control,
brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of
pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness
but denying its power.”
II Timothy 3:1-5
“At that time Michael, the great prince that protects you people,
will arise. There will be a time of distress such as has not happened
from the beginning of nations until then. But at that time you people
—every one whose name is found written in the book—
will be delivered.”
“But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words,
and seal the book, even to the time of the end:
many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.”
Harry Anderson’s perception of Jesus Christ’s Return to Planet Earth
THE GREAT CONTROVERSY
“Nations will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom.
There will be great earthquakes, famines, and pestilences in various
places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven.”
Luke 21:10, 11
“At that time, they will see the Son of Man coming
in a cloud with power and great glory.”
Every person who ever lived on Planet Earth has been invited
to inherit a forever life with a home in God’s Everlasting Kingdom.
This gift awaits all who remain faithful to Jesus and reflect
His character in lives guided by the Holy Spirit.
Christ promised: “In my Father’s house are many rooms…I am going
there to prepare a place for you. I will come back and take you
to be with me that you also may be where I am…”
Forms of godliness that focus on rituals, brand names, and pious-
sounding platitudes can’t deliver the gift of salvation from sin.
When Christ returns to Earth, only two categories of humans will be
found: the “righteous” whose names are written in the “Book of
Life” and “evildoers” who have rejected salvation through Christ.
“Even so, come Lord Jesus.”
