Revelation 1:7 ” Look, He is coming with the clouds and every eye will see Him…”

John is writing about the Second Coming of Christ here in the first part of Revelation, but if we go to the last Chapter of the Book we hear the Lord say three times, “Behold, I am coming soon.” Three times in Chapter 22 Jesus unequivocally is explicit in His words…”I am coming back.” So why does the world doubt His return? Is it because it’s been so long since He ascended into heaven and our definition of “soon” was a long time ago…so maybe He’s not coming back at all. Or maybe it’s because the world thinks it can get along well without Jesus so there’s really no need for Him to return. But Jesus reassured His disciples of His return in Matthew 16:27, “For the Son of Man is going to come in His Father’s glory.” And if we look at the Greek words for “is going to come” in this Scripture, we see that the meaning is – something about to happen with absolute certianity. Jesus did not tell His disciples that if He felt like it He might come back…No, He told them it was already a done deal and they didn’t have to worry about it. So the next time you might have some questions about Jesus’ return, remember this verse… “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.” (John 14:2)
