Why Will Jesus Come Again?
The Lord’s second coming is a great spiritual event with the descent of the wrath of
It is also the time for judging the dead. All who fear the name of the Lord, His servants and prophets and disciples, will receive their reward.
It will be the time when God will frustrate the corrupt world (Rev 11:15-18).
Below are some points for us to ponder:
1. Will Jesus come again to take the believers with Him?
Yes. The Lord promised, “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.” (Jn 14:2-3).
The Lord will come to deliver us, for we (the church) are the promised virgin to the Lord (2 Cor 11:2).
When the time is fulfilled, He will come (Rev 19:7).
The Spiritual church is His perfect one (Song 6:9). “I belong to my love, and my love belongs to me.”
When He comes again, we will be caught up with Him in the air (1 Thess 4:17).
2. Will Jesus come again to execute judgment?
Yes. Christ will come as the judge, unlike His first coming when he came as a saviour. His second coming is for the deliverance of those who believe and wait for Him. To those who do not believe,
He is the Lord of Judgment.
On His second coming, the era of grace will end and the door will be closed. Many who want to enter will be kept out (Lk 13:24-25).
He will punish those who do not know God and who do not obey the gospel of Jesus. What will the end be for those who disobey the gospel? How will the sinful stand?
3. Will Jesus come again to end the evil generation?
Yes. This world is corrupted by evil and falls under the evil one. This was not God’s will in creation. Therefore, it must end in order that the new heaven and earth can be accomplished. The end is not reformation but destruction. When the Lord comes again, “The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare.” (2 Pet 3:10).
Will Jesus come again to destroy the world just like in Noah’s days? We may find answer in the great flood (Gen 6:12-13). The Lord said, “Just as it was in the days of Noah, so also will it be in the days of the Son of Man. It was the same in the days of Lot. People were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building. But the day Lot left Sodom, fire and sulphur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all.
It will be just like this on the day the Son of Man is revealed.” (Lk 17:26-30).
Why will Jesus come again and what bearing does it have on the world?
Jesus’ second coming signifies the end of the world. It will mark the end of the old world and the beginning of the new heaven and earth. Every Christian who yearns to enter the new heaven and earth regards Jesus’ coming as their greatest hope (1 Pet 1:13). Will Jesus come again to mark the end of you and I? That will depend on our faith and obedience to God’s words.
