The phrase is based on the "concept" of the moment at which you decide to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, but it has a secular meaning. A "come to Jesus moment" refers to a dawning, epiphany or agreement following a disagreement. It refers to when the light blub comes on and you understand something or make a critical decision.

"a watershed in modern American history, a time that … forever changed American social attitudes" (Robert Reinhold). Probably translation of German Wasserscheide : Wasser, …water + Scheide, divide, parting. St Marcellin Champagnat was asked to treat a sick boy in a watershed. The boy know nothing of the Churchs teaching. This inspired Champagnat to found the Marist Teaching Brothers
Jesus promised His disciples that He would come again. John 14:1-3 says, "Let not your heart be troubled...In My Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I wou…ld have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also." As the Bible says, Jesus will come again someday, and the world as we know it will come to an end. There are many ideas and opinions about the end-times, but the Bible gives very few details of exactly what will happen. Most questions do not have a clear answer in the Bible. Instead, the Bible advises us to be spiritually prepared for judgment at any moment and to put our trust in God that He will make everything right in the end.
Jesus said no person knows the day or the hour of His return, not even Himself while He was here on earth. Only the Father knew at that time. We see in this that Chr…ist allowed certain aspects of His deity to be set aside, "Who thought it not robbery to be equal with God: but made Himself of no reputation, and took upon Him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men." Philippians 2:6,7. Christ warned against being fooled by those who would claim to know the time of His return or that He had actually come. He said "Believe them not." Only God the Father knows when Christ will return:- Mat 24:29-31,36 KJV 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: [v. 30] 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. [v. 31] And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. [v.36] But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. Mar 13:19-27, 32-37 KJV For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be. [v.20] And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days. [v. 21] And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ; or, lo, he is there; believe him not: [v. 22] For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect. [v. 23] But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things. [v. 24] But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, [v. 25] And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken. [v. 26] And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory. [v. 27] And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven. [v.37] But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. [v. 33] Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. [v. 34] For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch. [v. 35] Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: [v. 36] Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. [v. 37] And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch. Jesus specifically says no man will know, and to watch and pray until that day comes. Jesus will be coming very soon. He will come when we are not expecting it. He might come this minute. He might come a minute later, a hour later. So accept Jesus into your heart (believe in him and change your ways and life) before it is too late. No one really knows when or even if he will come back, but his name is spelled either Jezus or Jesus not jessus. well to tell you the truth its not jesus it emmanuel and when he dos retern he will have a new name and only he will know it.
One thought: There are a few scriptures to consider when answering this question: Before he came to earth: * He was God's first creation(Colossians 1:15; Revelation 3:14; P…roverbs 8:29+30) and God's son (Matthew 3:16, 17; Mark 1:9-11; Luke 3:21, 22). * He, therefore, was in heaven with God before he came to earth (John 3:13)(John 8:23+42+58)(John 6:38, 62)(John 17:5+24) and was sent to earth by God (John 12:49)(John 6:38)(John 1:18) Once on earth: * He was born in Bethlehem(Luke 2:4-7)(Matthew 2:1)(Micah 5:2), but moved to Egypt with his family while still a baby(Matthew 2:13-15; Hosea 11:1) * He then moved to Nazareth of Galilee and was raised there(Luke 2:39)(Mark 1:9)
dieing Coming to Jesus would be being saved, accepting him by faith that he died and rose again and is alive so that we can live. Read the Bible for yourself and he will …reveal himself to you.
Jesus' most challenging moments came during His forty days in the wilderness when He was tempted in various ways by the Devil, and also in the Garden of Gesthemane prior to hi…s arrest, suffering, and death.

When Jesus was praying to his Father. when Jesus was with Mary and Joseph his parents. When Jesus was with kids, his disciples, his circle of friends. When Jesus was with the …sick people, poor people, hungry people. When Jesus was with Martha and Mary after the death of his friend Lazarus. when Jesus was in the kingdom of His Father in the resurrection. When Jesus is with us when we receive communion. When we recognize him in the person of others....
It means that you're a follower of Jesus Christ, you believe that he is the Son of God, that the bible is God's word (and that all in it, being God's word, is true), and try t…o follow it as closely as possible. As for how it became applied to the followers, I'll simply say that his name was Jesus Christ, and so the following of him is Christianity...
The only time that it is recorded that Jesus said this, is in response to a question from two of his disciples as to where he was staying, and his answer is to your question t…oo: Master,) where dwellest thou? He saith unto them, Come and see. They came and saw where he dwelt, and abode with him that day: for it was about the tenth hour. (John 1.38,39)
Jesus said that He would come back to bring His church to be with Him in heaven. Coming back means that He was already here, so . . . He came, He left, and He's coming back ag…ain.
In Jesus Christ
He was and is God and the son of God, and he came from heaven.
Did Jesus have the second coming in mind when He predicted His coming on clouds or did this saying have a different meaning?
Jesus knew that His seven-year "earthly ministry" would be a "two-parter." He knew that the first part would be cut off in the midst of it after 3 1/2 years by His "sacrifice.…" That was the reason He came the "first time." And He knew that He would be returning the second time... not as a "sacrificial Lamb"... but as earth's returning King with Power and Glory. He revealed it to His hometown people "in church" one day, shortly after He began to preach the Kingdom of God. The scroll of Isaiah that He was handed contained Isaiah's inspired prophecy, that rolled both parts of Jesus' ministry into one, of which the people were unaware. Jesus only read the prophecy up to the end of the first part... and stopped reading where the second part began. The first part read: "...He found the place where it is written: 'The Spirit of the Lord is on Me, because He has anointed Me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor.' Then He rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the attendant and sat down. "The eyes of everyone in the synagogue were fastened on Him, and He began by saying to them, 'TODAY THIS SCRIPTURE IS FULFILLED IN YOUR HEARING.'" (Luke 4:17-21 NIV) If Jesus would have kept on reading... He would have delved into the second part [the second 3 1/2 year phase] of His seven-year ministry -- His return to take over the rulership of earth from Satan-guided man. Isaiah's passage goes on to say from; [...to proclaim the year of the LORD's favor..."]: "...and THE DAY OF VENGEANCE OF OUR GOD, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion -- to bestow on them a Crown of Beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of Praise instead of a spirit of despair..." (Isa.61:2-3 NIV). Jesus knew why He came... to remove all sin from the earth... and to save it from Satan's perverted rule. But, He first had to "redeem man" from his god's clutches -- which meant, He had to DIE FOR THEM. For if He failed to complete the first phase of His ministry... there would be no second part. The Words of the Bible are "Jesus' Words." He is the "WORD of God" [the LOGOS; the Spokesman for His Father in heaven -- see John 1]. And no one knows Scripture better than He does. He knew and knows all the prophecies that reveal the time of His coming to earth as its King. His mention of "clouds" is repeated throughout Scripture. The Scriptures tell us that the earth will be darkened by clouds prior to Jesus coming back to earth in WRATH. It's the sun-like "brightness of His coming" that shall split the clouds for all the nations on earth to see... so that there will be no mistaking it. "...for the Day of the Lord cometh, for it is nigh at hand; a day of darkness and of gloominess, a DAY OF CLOUDS and of thick darkness..." (Joel 2:1-2). "The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood [see also; Rev.6, seal 6], BEFORE the Great and the Terrible DAY OF THE LORD come." (verse 31) Jesus had exactly His "second coming" in mind when He spoke of "clouds." "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." (Matt.24:29-30) Answer:When Jesus told Caiaphas and the court that condemned him to death that he was the Son of Man who would come "on the clouds of heaven" he was not speaking of his second coming but the coming judgment of Jerusalem (Matthew 26:63-64) As Caiaphas and the court well knew, clouds were a common Old Testament symbol pointing to God as the sovereign judge of the nations. In the words of Isaiah, "See, the Lord rides on a swift cloud and is coming to Egypt. The idols of Egypt tremble before him, and the hearts of the Egyptians melt within them" (Isaiah 19:1). Like the Old Testament prophets, Jesus employs clouds to warn his hearers that as judgment fell on Egypt, so would judgment soon befall Jerusalem.
it means you see Jesus on a horse coming from a cloud
From this moment means from this point forward. Nothing included from the past but focus on everything in the future. An example could be, "From this moment on no one will be …allowed to leave their desk unless they are given permission."
