When Will Jesus’ Return?
 

I really get a blessing reading this page you send me. I rate it a 10. I am finding answers here. I would like to know all I can about Jesus return”

 Elizabeth, from Alabama

 This is a great area to study. If you do, it will change your life and priorities. Read Matthew 24, Luke 21 and Mark 13. All three chapters explain the second coming. Let me summarize the high points for you.

 Contrary to the popular LEFT BEHIND book series and what many Christians have been falsely taught, Jesus will return "after the tribulation....And send his angels, and gather together his elect from the four winds, from the farthest part earth to the farthest part of heaven." (See Mark 13: 19-27, Luke 21, and Matthew 24:4-31.)

 We are warned not to be deceived about this. Sadly, Dispensationalism has deceived many. It's the false belief system behind the pre tribulation rapture theory. It is based on the erroneous assumption that these scriptures pertain to Jews who are left behind after the rapture, but the use of the word elect in the above passages refutes that. Honestly, no Christians through church history or in other parts of the world believe this. Dispensationalism is a heretical doctrine from the 19th Century that has lulled the American church into apathy complacency.

 Jesus will not return until the "gospel of the kingdom has been preached to all the world (Matt. 24:14). The gospel of the kingdom comes with power to heal and deliver from Satan's grasp, something that Dispensationalists also deny. Based on a distortion of I Corinthians 13, they falsely believe that spiritual gifts and healing ended once the Bible was formed. They wrongly believe that such gifts were necessary to start the Church rather than realizing that they are a natural expression of God's love and power. They ignore the fact that Jesus is the same, yesterday, today and forever.

 Christians are called to do the works Jesus did and greater (John 14:12). We are also told to watch and pray that we may be counted worthy to escape the suffering of the great tribulation (Luke 21:36). We are to avoid being weighted down with “carousing, drunkenness and the cares of life” (vs. 34). We must be about our Father's business, not sleeping (Mark 13:34-36). 

 I shudder when I realize how few Christians are actively seeking to do God's will, make disciples and discover and fulfill their calling and destiny. Let me ask you some rude questions. How many people have you discipled? Do you know God’s will for your life? Are you actively seeking to fulfill your calling?

 Dispensationalism also teaches that the things Jesus commanded are not for Christians but for Jews after the rapture. This is why they do so little to make disciples. According to Jesus, disciples are to be taught to "obey all that he commanded." (See Matt. 28:18-20.) This includes healing the sick, casting out demons (See Mark 16:15-18) and proclaiming the good news of the kingdom of God. This is taught all through the gospels. Jesus was obsessed with God’s kingdom.

 Here’s why Dispensationalists don’t really make disciples after the pattern he left us: if we don't believe Jesus' commandments are for us, why would we teach others to obey them?

 There will be many unpleasant surprises when Jesus returns. I am especially concerned over the fate of those who have been seduced into believing that they will be ruptured before the tribulation. When tribulation comes, many of them will be so angry I fear they will encourage the persecution of other believers. This will no doubt spur that great falling away mentioned in II Thessalonians 2. Only those who love the truth ("God's Word is truth" - John 17:17.) will be sanctified and protected against deception. Those who don't know or love the truth of God's Word will believe a lie, come under a God sent delusion, and be condemned because they had pleasure in unrighteousness ( Vs. 10-12).

 The key issue for all of us is to know that we are doing God's will. On that great day when we stand before our Maker, everything else will be insignificant. I want to hear Him say to me "Well done good and faithful servant, enter into the joy of the Lord."  What do you want? Ultimately, this is the only question that matters in your entire life.
