When will Jesus return?
But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. (Matthew 24:36; see also Mark 13:32)
Notice Scripture says "of that day and hour". No one, not even the "man", Yeshua, knows when "that day" will be. BUT! Jesus is very clear that we will be able to tell when that day is approaching, by the signs of the "season".
Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So like wise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. (Matthew 24:32-33; see also Mark 13:28-29; Luke 21:29-30)
Every one looks for budding plants to know that spring is here and summer is coming. When the plants start budding and leaves come out, it is obvious and we are certain that summer is right around the corner. So it will be in the last days. In this passage of Scripture, the leaves coming out are the "signs" that will come to pass that the end is nigh. "When ye see all these things, know that it is near, even at the door." So ... what are "all these things"? What are the signs. Yeshua Jesus make them very clear.
- False Christ's
For many shall come in My name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. (Matthew 24:5; see also Mark 13:6,22; Luke 21:8)
- Wars and Rumours of Wars
And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. (Matthew 24:6; see also Mark 13:7; Luke 21:9)
- Famines, Pestilences, and Earthquakes
For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. (Matthew 24:7; see also Mark 13:8; Luke 21:10-11)
This is just the beginning!
All these are the beginning of sorrow. (Matthew 24:8; see also Mark 13:8)
- Christians Hated and Persecuted
Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for My names sake. (Matthew 24:9; see also Mark 13:9,13; Luke 21:12,17)
- Falling Away from the Church
And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. (Matthew 24:10; see also Mark 13:12; Luke 21:16)
- False Prophets
And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many (Matthew 24:11)
Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. (Matthew 24:23-24; see also Mark 13:21-22)
- Immoral and Grossly Unfair Behavior
And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. (Matthew 24:12)
- The Gospel will be Preached all over the World
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. (Matthew 24:14; see also Mark 13:10; Revelation 14:6)
- Signs in the Heavens
And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and distress of nations with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring. (Luke 21:25; see also Mark 13:24-25)
The Bible foretells many signs that would culminate in the last days. Jesus indicated these signs would arise together as His return drew near (Matthew 24:32-34). Though many of these prophecies won't climax until the very end, our generation is the first to see every trend in place. As the final seconds of this age tick away, these events will come into even clearer focus. Keep in mind as you read through this list that these prophecies were penned 1900 to 3500 years ago!
"Lazarus, come forth!"Lazarus was already dead for four days. His cold body would have changed colour and begun to decompose. And yet, his ears heard the loud voice of Jesus, and he woke up immediately, got up, and walked out of the cave entrance. And when the shell-shocked mourners took the burial cloths off him, they must have seen Lazarus' perfectly healthy complexion. Millions and millions of believers who have been sleeping in Christ since the first century, will also hear the loud voice of Jesus in the near future. And they will get up from the dust, on land or under the oceans, and will float upwards to meet Jesus in the air. If we are still alive, we shall also hear the loud voice of Jesus, and we shall be changed in an instant, and put on immortality, and float upwards right behind the heels of those believers raised up from the dust. I reckon the loud voice of Jesus could be expected to be in the following words..... "Come forth!" or "Come up!" Whatever the exact words may turn out to be, they are going to be the most beautiful words we will ever hear.
Go directly to The Way, or read on ...
Yeshua, the Word, went back to Heaven to be with His Father, YHWH. To be one again with Him. Yeshua will return to Earth again to gather all His people. He told us to watch for the times and the seasons for His return. The season is upon us! Amen! Maranatha! - Come Lord Jesus!
Based on THAT information ... I'd really like to know what that Word is!
The Word can be found in the Bible with help from the Holy Spirit. The Bible is the written document that was completely inspired by YHWH. The Bible was written by human beings that were filled with the Spirit of YHWH, the Holy Spirit. The Bible is the record of what YHWH wants us to know.
About YHWH ...
YHWH. I Am That I Am. He IS. God IS.
YHWH is OUTSIDE of the universe, OUTSIDE of time itself. With His Almighty power and with His very Word, He created the universe and time, for the sole purpose of a place for His greatest creation, mankind, to exist. YHWH loves His greatest creation so much that He gave us the CHOICE to Love Him back. Because we disobeyed YHWH, we fell from His Grace. YHWH loves us so much that He came here to atone for that disobediance. To pay the ultimate price with the death of Yeshua, so we can once again, have fellowship with our Lord and Master, Creator of all things, YHWH.
Who is Yeshua?
Yeshua. Jesus Christ. The Messiah of the chosen people of God. The Messiah of all the people of the Earth who CHOOSE to follow Him. The living embodyment of YHWH, who walked this Earth.
He taught the Word of God. He performed miracles of healing, of casting out evil spirits, of power over nature, and power over death itself. Yeshua was put to death, and three days later, He rose again and was alive, walking the Earth, teaching and performing miracles. He ascended into Heaven where He is today, waiting to return according to YHWH's great plan for mans' salvation, from before time itself.
YHWH's Spirit ...
The Holy Spirit. The Spirit of God. He Comforts us, Teaches us, Guides us, through everyday life.
He was there at the beginning of Creation. He creates and gives Life. The Holy Spirit is the source of wisdom and the source of miraculous power. The Holy Spirit inspired the writers of the Bible. Jesus promised the Holy Spirit to His followers. As true followers of Yeshua, the Holy Spirit of God resides inside of us. He will guide you through YHWH's plan for your life. He will instruct you in the Word of God and how to apply it. He gives you strength to live a life for the greater glory of YHWH.
