Because I took a peek at the front cover of a National Inquirer hanging there and it had a big headline on the front page with the words “He’s Back!!” and a picture of Jesus superimposed over a skyscraper.
It must have been a really slow gossip week for them to have to make up that one!
Because Jesus tells us about his return in Luke 17 and he says that lightening will flash and it will light up the sky from end of end. When the sky lights up from end to end, we’re not going to have to wait to read about it in the National Inquirer. We will all know, without a shadow of a doubt, that this is Jesus and he is back!
Because we’re all going to see it.
Paul tells us in Romans and Phillipians that every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus is Lord. Even those who never believed before are going to instantly understand that Jesus, their creator, the Son of God has arrived.
And this is the important stuff. There are all kinds of ways to interpret the signs and Revelation but the main event will be Jesus arriving once again to claim those who have already claimed him as their Savior. It will truly be impossible to miss!
