WHY SHOULD WE KNOW ABOUT CHRIST’S RETURN TO EARTH?
“Jesus left the temple and was walking away when his disciples came up to Him to call His attention to its buildings…” (Mtt. 24:1)
Jesus said, “Do you see these things? Not one stone here will be left on another; everyone will be thrown down.” (Mtt. 24:2)
QUESTION: SO, WHAT IS GREATER AND WHAT IS MORE IMPORTANT? “DON’T PUT YOUR TRUST AND SECURITY IN THAT WHICH IS MAN-MADE, FOR EVERYTHING ON THIS EARTH IS TEMPORAL – EVEN THE EARTH ITSELF!”
THE THREE BIG QUESTIONS OF THE DISCIPLES: Matthew 24:3 1.WHEN WILL THIS HAPPEN? 2.WHAT WILL BE THE SIGN OF YOUR COMING? 3.WHAT WILL BE THE SIGN OF THE END OF THE AGE? (WHAT DOES THE FUTURE HOLD?)
“After Jesus said this, He was taken up before their very eyes, and a cloud hid Him from their sight. They were looking, looking intently up into the sky as he was going, when suddenly two men dressed in white stood beside them. ‘Men of Galilee,’ they said, ‘why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen Him to into heaven.’ They returned to Jerusalem from the hill called the Mount of Olives, a Sabbath day’s walk from the city, (less than a mile).” Acts 1:9-12
HOW SHOULD I LIVE MY LIFE TODAY? 1.I SHOULD LIVE MY LIFE WITH BOTH AWARENSS AND INFORMATION KNOW WHAT THE FUTURE HOLDS! 2.I SHOULD LIVE MY LIFE WITH BOTH ANTICIPATION AND EXPECTION ALWAYS LOOKING FOR HIM TO COME!
