Come Jesus Come!

Mike-P1020072-200Dear Friends,

The Christmas season is coming up when we celebrate the first coming of Jesus Christ. I would like to share some thoughts in this newsletter about the second coming of Jesus Christ. I don’t spend much time reading about or thinking about when Christ will return. I know it will happen and that we are to live each day as if that were the day of his return.

I remember well the 1960s when there was much discussion and controversy surrounding the return of Jesus Christ. During this time a book came out by Hal Lindsay titled; “The Late Great Planet Earth.” In this book his position was that we were living in the last days of planet earth, Christ’s return was imminent and we must be ready. I had many discussions with believers worried that Jesus would return soon and they would not be ready. I remember one young couple that was pregnant with their first child asking me what would happen to their unborn child if Jesus came back. I didn’t have an answer but it started me on a journey to try and sort out what scripture had to say about the second coming of Jesus Christ.

Here we are fifty plus years later and Jesus still has not returned. However, in light of what is happening in the Middle East at this time it wouldn’t hurt to explore this topic a little. Interestingly our Pastor, James Ranger, began a series this last Sunday on the topic of Jesus Christ’s return. He was originally going to teach this in August but sensed the Lord telling him no. When he felt released to begin the series in November the conflict just broke when Hamas invaded Israel. We all thought that was interesting timing.

I want to share with you four questions Pastor James Ranger started with which I think are a good introduction to this topic of the return of Jesus Christ.

(1) What is the coming of Christ?
John 14:2-3 “In my fathers house are many rooms, if it were not so I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.”

He is coming to take us who believe in him home to be with him for eternity.

(2) When is Jesus going to come back?
Matthew 24:36 “No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.”

NO ONE KNOWS. Do not allow yourselves to be deceived by anyone who claims to know when Jesus is coming back. “We should plan our lives like he’s not coming back for 100 years, but we should live our lives like Jesus is coming back today.”

(3) How is Jesus going to come back?
I Thessalonians 4: 16-17 “For the Lord himself with come down from heaven, with a loud command, with voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.“

This is not going to be a quiet second coming. With a loud command, (shout), and trumpet call.

(4) Why is Jesus Christ coming?
Revelation 21:5 “He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then He said, “Write this down, for those words are trustworthy and true.”

Everything new could mean: new life, new body, new name, new city, new song, new heaven and earth.

I know there are various interpretations of when and how the second coming of Jesus Christ will evolve. Whatever your understanding of exactly how these events will play out we can all agree on the fact that Jesus Christ is coming back.

I trust you will have a blessed Christmas celebrating the birth of our blessed Savior and a great and prosperous New Year as we move into 2024!

God bless,
