2nd Coming of Jesus Christ

When is Jesus coming back?
Jesus will come back soon. However, the exact time when Jesus is coming again no one knows. Mark 13:32 says, “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” Interestingly, the disciples asked Jesus the same question just before He returned to heaven. At that time Jesus told them it was not for them to know the times or seasons which are in the Father’s authority. Therefore, Jesus may come back tomorrow, next month, next year or 100 years from now. So what does this mean for you and me? Always be ready for the second coming of Jesus Christ. Watch and focus on Jesus because the devil is seeking to distract mankind from understanding the signs and closeness of Jesus’ coming.

Why is Jesus taking so long to come back?
Jesus is patiently waiting to come back because He is giving humanity as much time as possible to choose and follow Him. Jesus wants as many people as possible to repent and return to heaven with Him. 2 Peter 3:8-9 says, “But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is long suffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.”

Warnings about the second coming of Jesus?
There are many confusing non-Biblical theories about the second coming of Christ which distract many people. Will He appear spiritually to only a select few? Will Jesus second coming to only be in certain physical locations? Will Jesus appear in the desert? Jesus warned about deceptions in the last days. In fact in Matthew 24:4-5 Jesus cautions believers not to be deceived by people coming in the name of Jesus claiming to be Christ. Therefore, our only safeguard is to turn to the Bible alone for answers.
