Second Coming of Christ - Signs for Keeping Watch

Second Coming of Christ - No One Knows When

The Second Coming of Christ is plagued by many false teachings. Prediction books have even been written picking the exact day of Jesus' return. These books may sell many copies, but they mislead their readers. There's one guarantee: As soon as someone predicts the day or time of Jesus Christ's second coming, that prediction is wrong. Why? Simply, only God the Father knows when it will be -- Jesus doesn't even know. Jesus told His disciples:
"No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father." "Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding with the hand mill; one will be taken and the other left." "Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come." (Matthew 24:36, 40 & 42)


We could just shrug our shoulders and casually wait for the Second Coming of Christ. However, Jesus wants us to "keep watch." A great way to keep watch is to know what the Bible reveals about upcoming events and compare those to what we see happening today. There are nearly 100 biblical passages discussing the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. The key events can be summarized with the acrostic: S - E - C - O - N - D.

S…Sudden. As we saw above, no one but the Father knows when. However, we do know it will take place "as lightning." Matthew 24:27 says, "For as lightning that comes from the east is visible even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man."

E…Essential.
One of the foundations of the Christian faith is Jesus' second coming. It is spoken of by Jesus and many others in the Bible. Jesus will physically come again for all His believers and for His final judgment. Unfortunately, some Christian cults teach that Christ "secretly" returned already. As you read what the Bible says about the Second Coming of Jesus, it will be obvious that it hasn't happened yet.

C…Christ's Final Judgment.
The Bible declares that Jesus will be the final judge of the world (John 5:22, Acts 10:42 and 2Timothy 4:1). Some of the additional verses describing the second coming, resurrection of the dead, millennium, and final judgment are located in Acts 17:31, 1Thessalonians 4:13-5:11 and Hebrews 10:27.

O…Obvious.
There are over 6 billion people on the planet. God only knows what percentage are truly Christians, but let's use a conservative number like 10%. If this is true, over 600,000,000 people will vanish from the earth simultaneously according to Matthew 24:40. There will be no mistaking when Christ comes back for His Church!

N…No One Knows When.
In Matthew 24:36, Jesus said only God the Father knows when. God is outside time. God already knows every prediction regarding Jesus' return that has ever been or will ever be made. Since Jesus said that no one knows about that day but the Father, NO ONE KNOWS!


The "D" is for "Doubters". As we get closer and closer to the Second Coming of Christ, there will be increasing and widespread doubt about whether Jesus even existed. People will also start wondering if God really exists and believers will leave the Christian faith (2 Thessalonians 2:1-4, 1 Timothy 4:1-2, and 2 Peter 2:1-3). Do you think we're already seeing these signs?

Hi; I have been keeping watch. I believe in numerology, the bible is based on it. God's number is 7, the perfect number would be 49 ( 7x7=49 ), now I'll come back to this point in a sec.
All the signs that the bible talks of have already manifested and more.
1;- All these continuos natural disasters, earth
quakes, tornados, monsuns, sinamies, volca-
nic eruptions, floodings have never happenn-
ed so frquently like in the past 2 years.
2;-The USA has 2 wars going on, and with the
possibility of a 3rd ( when it rushes to
Israel's aid ) soon.
3;-The near collapsed of the Dollar market.
What happenned last year was just a warm up
for the real thing coming soon.
4;- The raising of son & daugthers vs Mothers &
fathers. The lack of respect & decency in
today's 80% youth. For saying things like;
" Thank you "," Good morning ", " Excuse Me"
are a sign of weakness.
Most of today's youth considers Honesty,
hard work & decency out of style an old.
5;- All the depravity, vulgarity & obcenity
accepted in today's society as ENTRETAIMENT.
Which has left the door open for GAY & Les-
bians to be consider normal. IF they think
the have been discriminated upon because of
their sexual appetite, wait till they stand
before the creator of the Universe, he rea-
doesn't give a hooo over their sexual appe-
tite.
6;- All the killing of innocent defenseless ba-
bies every day in abortion clinics.
7;- The acceptance by the USA goverment of
Satanism as a regular religion, in the name
of freedom of choice.
8;- The 2 main things that are going to serve
the anti-christ are already up and rolling.
a;- The URO, which involves a single monetary
system already being use in Europe.
b;-The United Nations Building in N.Y., which
will be his initial OFFICE.

All of these combine with my 1st point mentioned
above that 49 is the perfect number, I can pretty much say, that the rapture will take place within in the next 50 , 51 years, give o take a year or two, to be more precise, like around the year 2049, I have more faith on my feelings than what these people have predicted on their fancy calendars. There's no doubt, God's gonna CLEAN HOUSE, before he brings down the NEW JERUSALEM, Amen ?

wow.. thats very deep. you have a good foresight...

for me... these are just signs, i will not speculate.

when God spoke no one will know the day when the Lord comes, it is true that He will come when the people least expect it (except Christians), what God wants us to do is to live each day as if it were our last. :)

Today may be the last breath we take so being ready to meet the Lord should be our only priority not worrying about the day or hour of His return.
