What It Is….
1) The VISIBLE/PHYSICAL return of Jesus to earth.
27 And then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. Luke 21:27 (ESV)
What It Means….
1) God Is In CONTROL.
10 as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth. Ephesians 1:10 (ESV)
9 letting us in on the plans he took such delight in making. He set it all out before us in Christ, 10 a long-range plan in which everything would be brought together and summed up in him, everything in deepest heaven, everything on planet earth. Ephesians 1:9-10 (MSG)
2) I will be held ACCOUNTABLE for everything I do.
27 For the Son of Man is going to come with his angels in the glory of his Father, and then he will repay each person according to what he has done. Matthew 16:27 (ESV)
3) God Will REWARD His Children.
4 And when the chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the unfading crown of glory. 1 Peter 5:4 (ESV)
What It Does….
1) Motivates Us To Use Our Resources WISELY.
13 So he called ten of his servants and gave them ten minas. 'Put this money to work,' he said, 'until I come back.' Luke 19:13 (NIV)
2) Motivates Us To Live a HOLY LIFE.
23 Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Thessalonians 5:23 (ESV)
3) Motivates Us to Stay FAITHFUL.
28 And now, little children, abide in him, so that when he appears we may have confidence and not shrink from him in shame at his coming. 1 John 2:28 (ESV)
4) Gives Us a true and living HOPE.
13 waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, 14 who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works. Titus 2:13-14 (ESV)
2 Beloved, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is. 1 John 3:2 (ESV)
Jesus Is COMING BACK, but we don’t know WHEN, so we MUST be READY.
44 Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect. Matthew 24:44 (ESV)
