Words spoken by Christ himself in Matthew 24, reveal that He will return. This Return will be the greatest event the world has ever experience. Revelation 1:7 tell us "Behold, He cometh with clouds, and every eye shall see Him"
Jesus warns that before His actual return, many false Christs and false prophets will come forth and showing great wonders, deceive many. (Matthew 24:4,5). Jesus tells us that a false Christ will impersonate Him, proclaiming to be the returning Jesus. The scriptures tell us how we can know that it is a false Christ. The real return of Jesus will take place in the sky, not on the land. A prophet showing great supernatural wonders, that tells us Christ is soon to appear on land, we will know that this is a false prophet. When this "Christ" appears on land, those who study the scriptures and know the truth will know this is the false Christ.
The following passages describe the real and the false returns of Jesus.
Mark 13:26 "Then they will see the Son of Man coming in the clouds with great power and glory."
1 Thessalonians 4:16, 17: "For the Lord Himself will descend from Heaven with a shout, with the voice of the Archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air."
Matthew 24:4,5 : "And Jesus answered and said to them, 'Take heed that no one deceives you, for many will come in my name, saying, I am the Christ', and will deceive many."
Matthew 24:23-27: (Jesus speaks): "then if anyone says to you, Look, 'here is the Christ, or There', do not believe it. For false Christs and false prophets will arise and show great signs and wonders so as to deceive, if possible, even the elect. See I have told you beforehand.Therefore, if they say to you, 'Look, He is in the desert.', do not go out, or 'Look, he is in the inner rooms.', do not believe it. For as the lightning flashes from the East, and flashes to the West, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be."
Who is the false Christ? Some believe it will be the devil. He has desired to receive the worship that is to be given only to God. (example: Matthew 4:8-10
2 Corinthians 11: 13,14 "For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the Apostles of Christ. And no marvel, for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light."
Those who study these Bible passages and follow the teachings will be able to resist the deceptions and delusions of the final days. Do not falter. Do not be taken in by the final deception of Satan, when he impersonates the Second Coming. Hold tight to the truths you have read in the Bible. Know that soon after the devil tries to deceive the world, we will have the real return of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
Mathew 24:36 "but of that day and hour, no one knows, no, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only."
Matthew 24: 30,31 "Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming in the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory. And he will send his angels with a great sound of trumpet, and they will gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other."
Mathew 24:13 "But he who endures to the end shall be saved."
