Why will Jesus come back?

Posted by Elaine January 01, 2015 at 12:00 AM AEDT

Clearly we are living in days that are close to the end of the world as we know it. But the Bible promises us that Jesus will return and all is not lost so what’s His purpose in returning – can we be free from the horrors to come?

Here’s what the Bible promises:
But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare. Psalm 34:8

The Bible also says Jesus patiently waits for us to turn away from our sin and accept the love He offers us. What do you believe?
