Jesus Return-Truth or Myth?

Whether you’ve been on facebook,  surfing the web or watching Late Night…you’ve probably read or heard  jokes  about the “End of the world”  As I scrolled through my homepage I noticed many posts regarding this subject, some even laugh as though it’s some preposterous story.  I for one do not believe that the “End” is coming May 21, 2011-BUT, as a Christian and minister of the gospel,  I fully believe the word of God regarding Jesus second coming and decided that since the subject of his return is on everyone’s mind-I decided to enlighten you with what the Bible says: “...When the Lord returns….Now concerning how and when all this will happen, dear brothers and sisters, we don’t really need to write you. For you know quite well that the day of the Lord’s return will come unexpectedly , like a thief in the night. When people are saying, ‘everything is peaceful and secure’ then disaster will fall on them as suddenly as a pregnant woman’s labor pains begin, and there will be no escape. But you aren’t in the dark about these things, dear brothers and sisters, and you won’t be surprised when the day of the Lord comes like a thief…so be on your guard, not sleep like the others. Stay alert and be clearheaded. Night is the time when people sleep and drinkers get drunk. But let us who live in the light be clearheaded, protected by the armor of faith and love, and wearing as our helmet the confidence of our salvation. For God chose to save us through our Lord Jesus Christ, not to pour out his anger on us. Christ died for us so that, whether we are dead or alive when he returns we can live with him forever” 1Thessalonians 4:15 through 5:3 (nlt)

The Good News is the Lord is patient and rich in mercy, “The Lord isn’t really slow about his promise as some people think. No, he is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent (turn from their ways, believe in and follow him) but the day of the Lord will come as unexpectedly as a thief.”  “And remember the Lord’s patience gives people time to be saved” 1Peter 3:9,10,15

Friends, as you can see in the scriptures there is coming a day of Judgement.  Jesus says in the book of Mathew chapter 25 that we will ALL stand before him and give account (this will be another future post) “‘As surely as I livesays the Lord ‘every knee will bend to me, and every tongue will confess to God'”  “Yes, each of us will give a personal account to God…” Romans 14: 11,12.

Take comfort in the truth that “They that believe-enter into rest” There is no fear for the believer, the one who accepts Jesus Christ as their savior (Romans 10:8-10)  Gods love is so great that he chose to send his Son Jesus for us all (John 3;16)…He paid the penalty for our sins and by his grace we are forgiven and accepted into his kingdom IF we believe and accept the Son of the Living God ~ Jesus Christ.

But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, [2] but the Father only. 37 For as were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.” Mathew 24;36-37
