Example text

We are looking through the haze of history to a time when the Lord Jesus Christ will reign on the earth in person. In a deep sense we are asking God to hasten the day when the Lord himself will descend from heaven and reclaim his rightful place as the ruler of the earth. That's why the angels declared to the startled apostles that "this same Jesus" who had ascended to heaven would one day return to the earth (Acts 1:11). In many ways this is a shocking thought, one that runs against the grain of modern thinking.

4:17 NASB) "Jesus was going over Galilee, . . preaching the good news of the kingdom" (Matt. 4:23 HCSB). "I must proclaim the good news about the kingdom of God, . . because I was sent for this purpose" (Luke 4:43 HCSB). "The kingdom of God is in your midst" (Luke 17:21 NASB). "My kingdom is not of this world. . " "You say that I'm a king," Jesus replied. "I was born for this, and I have come into the world for this: to testify to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to My voice" (John 18:36-37 HCSB).

This same Jesus is one day returning to the earth. I could go on, but you get the idea. Most of us have spent many years reading the Bible and looking at pictures of Jesus performing miracles and speaking to great multitudes. I can recall standing in the Hermitage museum in St. Petersburg, Russia, just a foot or so from Rembrandt's powerful painting of Christ being taken from the cross. We believe that the Jesus who is the subject of that painting, the one who died on the cross and rose from the dead, is actually, literally, bodily, physically, and personally returning to the earth one day.
