The signs of the second coming, there will be rumors of war , war, famine, sickness, and love for money will increase and children will be disobediant. Answer: Of the "four ho…rsemen" of the Apocalypse, or Revelation [the first four seals of chapter 6] - war, famine, pestilence, disease and earthquakes - Jesus tells us that these things will continue as "normal" everyday occurences in the world. He tells us: "...see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet." (Matt.24:6) These things have increased and intensified over the centuries... much of it the results of man's "technological advances" in warfare, scientific discoveries and medicine. And Jesus tells us that the increase and frequency of these things are not the signs of His "coming back"... but will signal the "beginning of the Great Tribulation!" "ALL THESE ARE THE BEGINNING OF SORROWS." (Matt.24:8) [sorrows: throes (odin); a pang or throe, especially of childbirth] This corresponds with Revelation's "seal 5" that follows the "four horsemen seals." The fifth seal of Revelation 6 reveals a time of persecution and martyrdom on the earth of God's people... NOT BEING CARRIED OFF SAFELY INTO HEAVEN, as so many religious denominations teach today. Jesus' description of seal 5, the Great Tribulation... the next chronological event to come in human affairs on the earth signaled by the first four seals... is found in the next 21 verses of Matthew 24: "...THEN shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and SHALL KILL YOU: and ye shall be hated OF ALL NATIONS for MY NAME'S SAKE. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another... and because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, THE SAME SHALL BE SAVED. and THIS GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM SHALL BE PREACHED IN ALL THE WORLD FOR A WITNESS UNTO ALL NATIONS; and THEN SHALL THE END COME." (Matt.24:9-14) Jesus doesn't come back until verses 30-31 in Matthew 24. Not until the Great Tribulation is shortened by the "heavenly signs"... not the signs of wars, famines, etc., that mark the start of the Tribulation. The "heavenly signs" is the composition of Revelation's "seal 6." "...when He opened the sixth seal... there was a great earthquake; and THE SUN BECAME BLACK AS SACKCLOTH OF HAIR, and THE MOON BECAME AS BLOOD; and the stars of heaven fell unto the earth... and the beaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places..." (Rev.6:12-14). Jesus tells us in Matthew 24, that it's these signs IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE GREAT TRIBULATION that signal the time of His coming. "...IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE TRIBULATION OF THOSE DAYS shall THE SUN BE DARKENED, and THE MOON SHALL NOT GIVE HER LIGHT, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: 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. And He shall send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather His elect..." (Matt.24:29-31). Once again... this is borne out by Revelation's "seal 6." "...and the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, HID THEMSELVES IN THE DENS AND IN THE ROCKS OF THE MOUNTAINS; and said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and HIDE US FROM THE FACE OF HIM THAT SITTETH ON THE THRONE, and from THE WRATH OF THE LAMB: for THE GREAT DAY OF HIS WRATH IS COME; and who shall be able to stand?" (Rev.6:15-17) It isn't the ongoing signs of the four horsemen of Revelation, wars, famines, pestilences, diseases and earthquakes that are the signs of Jesus' coming back. It shall be the entire darkening of the earth that will signal it. And that won't happen until AFTER the Great Tribulation which is just ahead of us... being brought about by the increasing, intensifying signs of more deadly global wars, famines, pestilences, diseases and earthquakes.
Jesus did come back to life, but if he didn't we wouldn't know he was going to come back again to judge us
Look around you, child. He is already here.
He 'came back' (was resurrected) to fulfill prophecy and continue to do God's will. History: Mankind was created to live forever on earth.(Genesis 2:15-17). Adam lost life fo…r us. God sent a redeemer...a savior...to rescue us from sin and death. (Genesis 3:15), (1 Timothy 2:5&6) *Adam was a perfect man(Genesis 1:31), son of God (Luke 3:38), who turned away from God, thus becoming sinful(Genesis 3:3&6). He was also the 'father' of everyone on earth, so his sin brought sickness and death to ALL his descendants (us).(Romans 5:12) *Jesus was a perfect man(Hebrews 4:14&15), son of God (Matthew 16:16),who remained FAITHFUL to God, remaining perfect. He REPLACED Adam as 'father' of humanity, (1 Corinthians 15:45&47)and by exercising faith in HIM as God's son and our savior,(John 6:29) we can gain back everlasting life. (John 17:3), (John 3:16) Jesus died as a 'corresponding ransom' for Adam. After he'd offered his perfect life to God, as a sacrifice for us, his resurrection showed that God can overcome even death(Acts 13:32&33), and that there will be a resurrection of MANY MANY people after his judgment period. (Acts 17:31NAS) " . .because He has fixed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness through a Man whom He has appointed, having furnished proof to all men by raising Him from the dead.." (Acts 24:15)(John 5:28+29) Because of his faithfulness to God his father(John 20:17), Jesus is now King in God's Kingdom.(Luke 1:32&33)(John 18:36)
only god the father
In fact the signs are all around us. Jesus said to be alert, heed the signs because He would return as a thief in the night. What Jesus said was this generation of man. No…t 1 man's lifetime, the people that now walk the earth. Jesus says there will be wars and rumors of wars. There will be many that say they are Christ. Nation will rise against nation. Famines, pestilences, earthquakes in various places. These are the begining of the end. Lawlessness, false prophets, Christianity will spread all over the globe. world-wide economy and monitary system. This is already in the works. OBama and higher ups are pushing for this, as is the Pope. These are just a few. But nobody knows, not even Jesus himself, "Only the Father knows, not the Son nor the Angels." That's the whole idea. The people that are watching, and are ready, will not be caught off guard. If everyone knew the exact time they would be wicked until 2 hours before the return and then repent. I expect God knows us well, the faithful will not be taken by surprise.
Jesus arose from the dead, to give us victory over death and Satan , and we can have salvation.
You should read Matthew 24:36, "But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven but my father only" This passage informs us that Jesus doesn't know, the …Angels in heaven surely don't know, only God knows. Jesus doesn't give us a date. Instead, he gives us signs to look for, many which have already appeared. When we see the abomination of desolation standing in the holy place, that's when we can be certain the tribulation time is upon us. The abomination of desolation is already in the holy place. 2Thess2:3-3 The holy place was the local churches and congregations of course. God ordained the church to declare the Word of God for 1,955 years. The church age has come to an end as of 1988, and Satan is ruling there, employed by God. Now, as God promised in Daniel 12, He is revealing to us information about the time of the end. Which includes the Biblical calendar of history coming right out of the pages of Genesis 5, 7, and 11. The whole Bible talks about the end, and every verse is taken into account when we preach that we know when the end is near. Please take your time to read Acts 1:7-8 Acts 1:7 And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judæa, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. When the church age started, God told them, it is NOT for YOU to know the times of the seasons which the Father has put in his own power but ye SHALL receive power to know the times and the seasons. this harmonizes perfectly with Eccl 8:5 Whoso keepeth the commandment shall feel no evil thing: and a wise man's heart discerneth(KNOWS) both time and judgment. Eccl 8:6 Because to every purpose there is time and judgment, therefore the misery of man [is] great upon him. Eccl 8:7 For he knoweth not that which shall be: for who can tell him when it shall be? Amos 3:7 Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets. Rev 3:3 Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. IFFFF therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee. Isa 42:9 Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them. There is just so much information Also, "no man" is speaking about natural man in himself. The verse in Matthew and mark does NOT say that no one will know. Simply says no one knows. Which is true. 1Cor 2:10 But God hath revealed [them] unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. 1Cor 2:11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth NO MAN, BUT the Spirit of God. 1Cor 2:12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. 1Cor 2:13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 1Cor 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know [them], because they are spiritually discerned.
Anywhere. Driving. At church. Sleeping. You could be anywhere.
No. Easter was when he came back from Good Friday - the day he was crucified, died and was buried.
Jesus himself made it quite clear that NO ONE can know when he will return to Earth. see Matthew 24:36. NOBODY can or knows when Jesus will return. Even Jesus himself doesn't… know. ONLY God Himself knows when. See Matthew 24:36
What are signs that show that Jesus is coming soon? Well, there is, 1)Increase in knowledge 2)Increase in evil 3)Wars and rumors of war 4) Return of the Jews to Israel 5)False… prophets and messiahs 6)Earthquakes 7)Famine and pestilence These are the signs of Jesus' soon return, and if you stop and think about it, you can see that all these signs are being fullfilled. For example, there is increase in evil, like same sex marriage, abhortion, and things that are wrong are being passed on as right. Also we can see that there are rumors of a third world war. Also, the Jews began to return to Israel in the 1940s. In addition, if we look around the world we can see all kinds of pestilence, and there have been many earthquakes in the last few years. So Jesus is coming soon, but know the question is, are you ready for his coming? Because if we aren't taken up to him during the rapture, it will literally be hell on Earth. For more information on Jesus' soon return and what will happen if you aren't taken up at the rapture, read the last book of the Bible, the Book of Revelations. If you want to be taken up, make sure that you have accepted Jesus as the Lord and Saviour of your life, and that your heart is straight with him. P.S. If you are currently doing JBQ, have done it, or are learning and and doing Bible Quiz, this answer should sound familiar to you because this answer was from the Bible Fact Pack, and the Bible Quiz Book. I hope this answers your question. :)
In The Bible
A:In 1872, Charles Taze Russell founded what was later to become known as the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society, the official name for the organisation of Jehovah's Witnesse…s. Russell related social, political and economic issues to biblical prophecies and created an elaborate biblical chronology that applied to his own time, including one prophecy that Jesus would return in invisible form in 1874. This was later revised to 1914 as the date for Argameddon, with the destruction of Christendom predicted for 1918. Like many others of his prophecies, this never seemed to happen, but Witnesses are convinced that he did indeed correctly predict the heavenly establishment of the Kingdom of God in 1914.
In Jesus Christ
No man knows the day or the hour Jesus will return. We also know it will be a time we son't expect.
He pretty much outright said that not even he knew when, but thatit would be sudden and unexpected, "as a thief in the night". Sopretty much any time.
