“At that time people will see the Son of Man coming in clouds with great power and glory. And he will send his angels and gather his elect from the four winds, from the ends of the earth to the ends of the heavens.” Mark 13:26-27.

Do I know the specifics of the return of Jesus? Not even close.
I know the bottom line, however: He is coming back.
They will be days when remarkable things will happen.
Think of the details missing in the New Testament. We have no idea what Jesus looks like. On that day we will be able to see Him as He really is.
We will have new decay-free bodies. All our senses will be perfected. No more aches and pains.
We will also be with those who are acceptable to Him. Talk about fellowship!
I have a definite lack of understanding about His return. I do know for certain two things: (1) I am acceptable to Him and (2) I must prepare myself and this earth for His return.
By recognizing myself as a sinner, deserving final separation from Him, I put myself in a position to understand my need to accept His shed blood for the removal of my sins. I have done those things, so I am in right standing with Him now and forever.
Right standing cannot be acquired after His return. Those denying God, ignoring Him, will be in eternal trouble when that occurs. They need to be warned. That’s that witnessing thing I have been writing about. It is not like missing out on a sale at Kohl’s. This is an eternal miss.
“Lord, I long for Your return yet I cringe at my lack of preparedness for that happening. Rev me up to speak of You. Give me, I pray, insights into doing it. I love You, Lord.”
He’s closer to coming back than He was a second ago!
