Many Christians believe Jesus will return very soon. In fact, ever since the epistles of Paul and the Gospel of Mark, there have been predictions that Jesus would return during the lifetimes of the people then living. Over the centuries, there have been hundreds of prophecies that Jesus would return at a particular time. So, if Jesus does come back one day, we can be confident this will not happen in our lifetimes or the lifetimes of our children or grandchildren. Very likely, he will never return.

No, He will not. Jesus Christ will not return until three and a half years after the mid-point of the 7-year Great Tribulation. This is when the Antichrist breaks a treaty h…e made with the Jews of Israel permitting them to remain in their own land and with their own Temple, which hasn't even been built yet. This should be no surprise, since Christ Himself said no-one would know when He would rerurn either:= Matthew 25:13Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
Another answer from our community: Yes, Jesus will return to earth, it is called the second coming of Jesus Christ, at the end of this age. Some believe we are now… living in the last days and this church age is about to end. The world will not end, but things as we know them will be changed and we will enter into a new age, called the millennium a thousand year period of peace. Yes, Jesus will return to the earth. Jesus said that he will return but no one knows when he will return. When Jesus returns, all the dead ones will rise first with him and then the living will rise after with Jesus. Those who does not believe in Jesus will not rise with him but stay at earth and then the nine plagues will come. When you go to heaven, it is like a city. Made out of crystals. There will be no tears or pain or sadness, nor mourning over a dead one. For everything will be perfect. We would be in a new world. Called the new Jeruselum. I learned all this from my Sunday School Teacher and from the bible.

Daniel:2:37-45: 37: Thou, O king, art a king of kings: for the God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory. 38: And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven hath he given into thine hand, and hath made thee ruler over them all. Thou art this head of gold. 39: And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee, and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth. 40: And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise. 41: And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters' clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay. 42: And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. 43: And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay. 44:And in the days of these kings shall the God of Heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed:and the kingdom shall not be left to other people,but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms,and it shall stand for ever. 45:Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out the mountain without hands,and tht it brake in pieces the iron,the brass,the clay,the silver,and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.

Apparently at some point in the future,when the wicked are burned to ashes, the righteous will inherit the earth,when the New Jerusalem descends out of Heaven.

As himself, although he will not return as a humble baby in a manger or a humble carpenter in a backwater of the Roman Empire. We are told in scripture - and by jesus himself …- that when he returns everyone will know. There will be no doubt. He will return as himself but glorifed as king and judge and ruler.
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)
As FIRE: "For our God is a consuming fire." (Heb.12:29) "...His eyes were as a flame of fire; and His feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace... out of His m…outh went a sharp twoedged sword: and His countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength." (Rev.1:14-16) "...Hear, all ye people; hearken, O earth... behold, the Lord cometh forth out of His place, and will come down, and tread upon the high places of the earth. And the mountains shall be molten under Him, and the valleys shall be cleft, as wax before the fire..." (Micah 1:2-4). "...The mountains quake at Him, and the hills melt, and the earth is burned at His presence, yea, the world, and all that dwell therein. Who can stand before His indignation? And who can abide in the fierceness of His anger? His fury is poured out like fire, and the rocks are thrown down by Him. the Lord is good, a stronghold in the Day of trouble; and He knoweth them that trust in Him." (Nahum 1:5-7) "...let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the Day of the Lord cometh... there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it... a fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth... before their face the people shall be much pained... the earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining: and the Lord shall utter His voice before His army: for His camp is very great: for He is strong that executeth His Word: for the Day of the Lord is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?" (Joel 2:1-11)
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.
nobody knows it could be in 5 minutes or tonight or tommorow orin the evening. the bible says nobody knows when jeusus is coming back
Twice. He already came back the first time to pay for our sins by being the perfect sacrifice. And he will come back again during the times of revelation to call the saved… back home, this is when the rapture happens. He appears in the clouds and blows a trumpet basically. And then after another 7 years, he has an epic battle with satan, and then establishes a new heaven on earth for the saved to live on for 1000 years and so on and so forth~ If that helped any.. Basically, the first time he comes back, already happened. and then after the second time, the earth is remade and he "lives" on earth from that point forward. Another Answer: According to the Scripture, Christ will return at the blowing of the 7th trumpet during the 'tribulation' period (whole event takes 3 1/2 years). It will be known world-wide and will be only once. He will meet His Saints in the sky (heaven) and they will escort their King to the soon future home of the entire God Family. The Millennial rule begins. ANSWER To come back, someone has to first leave. Christ became man, was crucified, resurrected, and returned to heaven. Christ returns to Earth twice. The first time is the Rapture . This is when Christ returns and all christian and old-Testament "pre-christians" meet him in the air. He comes for His Church . He does not come for the world. HE DOES NOT TOUCH THE EARTH. The second time is the Second Coming. This is when Christ returns at the end of the Tribulation and actually stands on the very Mount of Olives. He comes to the earth in Judgement. This time HE DOES TOUCH THE EARTH. Do not confuse the two Returns : they are both separate events for separate groups with separate purposes . and separate results - they are not the same.
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.
The Bible is silent on this date yet to come but Jesus gave us signs to watch for in Matthew 24, Mark 13 and Luke 21.
In The Bible
A: Every few years we hear rumours and stories of Jesus' impending return, but these prophecies never come true. Once again, Jesus will not return in the next four y…ears. The apostle Paul reveals in his epistles that he confidently expected Jesus to return in his own lifetime. This was taken up by Mark's Gospel, which has Jesus tell his listeners that Jesus would return on clouds of glory within the lifetime of some of those then present, even describing the terrible events of the First Roman-Jewish war as heralding that return. Over the centuries and right down to the present day, there have been expectations of Jesus' imminent return. In a thousand years time, any Christians will still be waiting expectantly for Jesus to return soon.
