While it appears we all believe in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, and we all seemingly believe that He is going to return, we have differing opinions on the How, why, and when. Jesus said (emphasis added): Per this scripture, Jesus has gone to prepare us a place, and He promises to return to take us up to be with Him. Many people have tried to pinpoint the exact time of the second coming. A simple search of Wikipedia (admittedly not the best source) shows numerous failed predictions. Some men have even predicted the second coming multiple times, and then created very tenuous excuses as to why their prediction failed. Some of these predictions have come men who claim to have a high-level understanding of prophecy and eschatology. Some are just eccentric. But the truth is, they don't know. As Jesus said: And consider the Parable of the Ten Virgins: There are some Christians who believe that there is still loads of prophecy to be fulfilled before Jesus comes back. Others believe that Jesus could return at any moment. Both sides can point to scripture to make their case. What do you guys think? Can Jesus return at any moment? Or do we have to wait for certain events to come to pass before we need to start watching for His return? This topic entered the discussion on another thread. In an effort to not derail that thread, I'm starting this one.
