The words spoken by Yeshua documented in Matthew chapter 24 and John chapter 14, reveal that He will return. The greatest event the world will experience will be this return. Revelation 1:7 tell us "Behold, He cometh with clouds, and every eye shall see Him".
Yeshua warns that before His return, many false Christs will impersonate Him along with false prophets will come forth showing great wonders, deceive many (Matthew 24:4,5). The Bible tell us how we can know that it is a false Christ. The real return of Yeshua will take place in the sky, not on the land. A prophet showing great supernatural wonders, telling us that Christ is soon to appear on land, we will know is a false prophet. When this "Christ" appears on land, those who study the scriptures and know the truth will know this is a false Christ. Who is the false Christ? Some believe it will be Satan. Satan has desired to receive the worship that is to be given only to God. (example: Matthew 4:8-10)(Isaiah 14:13-14)
The following passages describe the real and the false returns of Yeshua.
"Then they will see the Son of Man coming in the clouds with great power and glory." (Mark 13:26)
"For the Lord Himself will descend from Heaven with a shout, with the voice of the Archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air." (1 Thessalonians 4:16, 17)
"And Jesus answered and said to them, 'Take heed that no one deceives you, for many will come in my name, saying, I am the Christ', and will deceive many." (Matthew 24:4,5)
Jesus speaks: "then if anyone says to you, Look, 'here is the Christ, or There', do not believe it. For false Christs and false prophets will arise and show great signs and wonders so as to deceive, if possible, even the elect. See I have told you beforehand. Therefore, if they say to you, 'Look, He is in the desert.', do not go out, or 'Look, he is in the inner rooms.', do not believe it. For as the lightning flashes from the East, and flashes to the West, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be." (Matthew 24:23-27)
"For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the Apostles of Christ. And no marvel, for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light." (2 Corinthians 11: 13,14)
Study the Bible passages and follow the teachings as this will enable you to resist the deceptions and delusions of the final days. Hold to the truths you have read in the Bible. Know that soon after Satan tries to deceive the world, the real return of our Lord and Saviour Yeshua will occur. We will not have prior knowlege of the day and time but we must hold fast.
"But of that day and hour, no one knows, no, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only." (Matthew 24:36)
“And there will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth distress of nations in perplexity because of the roaring of the sea and the waves, people fainting with fear and with foreboding of what is coming on the world. For the powers of the heavens will be shaken. And then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. Now when these things begin to take place, straighten up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.” (Luke 21:25-28)
"Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming in the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory. And he will send his angels with a great sound of trumpet, and they will gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other." (Matthew 24: 30,31)
Mathew 24:13 "But he who endures to the end shall be saved."
Why does Yeshua return?
As with Yeshua's first time on earth He will have a list of accomplishments to perform.
Defeat Those Who Gather To Destroy Jerusalem
"1 Behold, a day is coming for the Lord when the spoil taken from you will be divided among you. 2 For I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle, and the city will be captured, the houses plundered, the women ravished and half of the city exiled, but the rest of the people will not be cut off from the city. 3 Then the Lord will go forth and fight against those nations, as when He fights on a day of battle. 4 In that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which is in front of Jerusalem on the east; and the Mount of Olives will be split in its middle from east to west by a very large valley, so that half of the mountain will move toward the north and the other half toward the south. 5 You will flee by the valley of My mountains, for the valley of the mountains will reach to Azel; yes, you will flee just as you fled before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Then the Lord, my God, will come, and all the holy ones with Him!
6 In that day there will be no light; the luminaries will dwindle. 7 For it will be a unique day which is known to the Lord, neither day nor night, but it will come about that at evening time there will be light.
8 And in that day living waters will flow out of Jerusalem, half of them toward the eastern sea and the other half toward the western sea; it will be in summer as well as in winter." (Zechariah 14:1-8)
Establish His Kingdom and Be King Over All
"And the Lord will be king over all the earth; in that day the Lord will be the only one, and His name the only one." (Zechariah 14:9)
Gather the Saints (The Elect)
“Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also." (John 14:1-3)
"13 But we do not want you to be uninformed, brethren, about those who are asleep, so that you will not grieve as do the rest who have no hope. 14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who have fallen asleep in Jesus. 15 For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep. 16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord. 18 Therefore comfort one another with these words." (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)
"And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. 2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, 3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season." Revelations 20:1-3
Bring Peace to Earth
"2 In the last days the mountain of the LORD’s temple will be established as the highest of the mountains; it will be exalted above the hills, and all nations will stream to it.
3 Many peoples will come and say, “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the temple of the God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways, so that we may walk in his paths.” The law will go out from Zion, the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
4 He will judge between the nations and will settle disputes for many peoples. They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore." Isaiah 2:2–4
The Final Judgment
Issue Rewards and Punishment
“Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to render to every man according to what he has done."(Revelation 22:12)
"For the Son of Man is going to come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and will then repay every man according to his deeds." (Matthew 16:27)
31 “But when the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the angels with Him, then He will sit on His glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be gathered before Him; and He will separate them from one another, as the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats; 33 and He will put the sheep on His right, and the goats on the left.
34 “Then the King will say to those on His right, ‘Come, you who are blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. 35 For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; 36 naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me.’ 37 Then the righteous will answer Him, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, and feed You, or thirsty, and give You something to drink? 38 And when did we see You a stranger, and invite You in, or naked, and clothe You? 39 When did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ 40 The King will answer and say to them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.’
41 “Then He will also say to those on His left, ‘Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels; 42 for I was hungry, and you gave Me nothing to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me nothing to drink; 43 I was a stranger, and you did not invite Me in; naked, and you did not clothe Me; sick, and in prison, and you did not visit Me.’ 44 Then they themselves also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not [a]take care of You?’ 45 Then He will answer them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’ 46 These will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.” (Matthew 25:31-46)
