Journalists of the day recorded the events leading up to the death of Jesus:
The Chief Priest stood up and asked Jesus, “What do you have to say to the accusation?” Jesus was silent. He said nothing.

The Chief Priest tried again, this time asking, “Are you the Messiah, the Son of the Blessed?” Jesus said, “Yes, I am, and you’ll see it yourself: The Son of Man seated At the right hand of the Mighty One, Arriving on the clouds of heaven.” Mark 14:60-62

In the Bible God says: Just as man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgement, so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him. Hebrews (:27-28

Right now it’s popular to doubt the reality and authority of Jesus.

Believing He doesn’t exist may somehow free us up to be unaccountable for our actions but no matter what we believe about Him, the reality is Jesus is coming back.

Our beliefs can’t alter his promise to return and what we believe when He returns will determine where we spend eternity! This may be the most important post you ever read so please read now and leave your comments below.

This is what it will mean for Christians when Jesus returns to earth – the Bible says:

John the Baptist Prepares the Way:
As is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet: "A voice of one calling in the desert, ‘Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him.
Every valley shall be filled in, every mountain and hill made low. The crooked roads shall become straight, the rough ways smooth. And all mankind will see God’s salvation.’ Luke 3:3-6 NIV

Sing a new song to the LORD, for he has done wonderful deeds. He has won a mighty victory by his power and holiness.

The LORD has announced his victory and has revealed his righteousness to every nation!

He has remembered his promise to love and be faithful to Israel. The whole earth has seen the salvation of our God.

Shout to the LORD, all the earth; break out in praise and sing for joy! Sing your praise to the LORD with the harp, with the harp and melodious song, with trumpets and the sound of the ram’s horn. Make a joyful symphony before the LORD, the King!

Let the sea and everything in it shout his praise! Let the earth and all living things join in.

Let the rivers clap their hands in glee! Let the hills sing out their songs of joy before the LORD. For the LORD is coming to judge the earth. He will judge the world with justice, and the nations with fairness. Psalm 98 NLT

Here’s what it will mean for Christians when Jesus returns to earth – the Bible says:

And now, brothers and sisters, I want you to know what will happen to the Christians who have died so you will not be full of sorrow like people who have no hope.
For since we believe that Jesus died and was raised to life again, we also believe that when Jesus comes, God will bring back with Jesus all the Christians who have died.

I can tell you this directly from the Lord: We who are still living when the Lord returns will not rise to meet him ahead of those who are in their graves.

For the Lord himself will come down from heaven with a commanding shout, with the call of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. First, all the Christians who have died will rise from their graves.

Then, together with them, we who are still alive and remain on the earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air and remain with him forever.So comfort and encourage each other with these words. 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 NLT

Spirit Break Out

We know that the same God who raised our Lord Jesus will also raise us with Jesus and present us to himself along with you.

All of these things are for your benefit. And as God’s grace brings more and more people to Christ, there will be great thanksgiving, and God will receive more and more glory.

That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day. 2 Corinthians 4:14-16 NLT

There is plenty of room for you in my Father’s home. If that weren’t so, would I have told you that I’m on my way to get a room ready for you? And if I’m on my way to get your room ready, I’ll come back and get you so you can live where I live."
John 14:2-4
