Jesus Will Come Again
By: Pastor Victor Borchard
God is calling us to be His witnesses
by the power of His Spirit
until the return of His Son.
Last summer, the Lord blessed me with a sabbatical. Early on, I spent a week at a pastor’s retreat house in Prairie City, Oregon. While I was there, my daughters asked me when I was coming home. I told them I could come home at any time. I’d probably be gone for about a week, but I might surprise them by coming home early. It was the immanent return of daddy.
Since I could come back at any moment, I asked them to work, watch and wait. Work hard on your chores so that everything’s nice whenever I come. Watch out for getting into trouble so that I don’t catch you doing something you shouldn’t. Wait eagerly for a hug from the daddy who loves you.
Even better than the return of an earthly dad is the return of a heavenly Son…
And while they were gazing into heaven as he went, behold, two men stood by them in white robes, and said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into heaven? This Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will come in the same way as you saw him go into heaven.” (Acts 1:10-11 ESV)
After Jesus ascended into heaven, the disciples were standing still and gazing heavenward. Then, a couple of angels told them that Jesus would come back the same way he went. They saw him visibly depart and his return would be visibly seen by every eye. They saw his physical body depart. He would return in that same physical body.
Ever since then, the church has been working, watching and waiting for the immanent return of Jesus Christ. We work hard on the mission of making disciples by winning people to Christ and growing them up in Christ. We watch out for sin and Satan so that we’re not doing shameful things when He comes. We wait with the eager expectation of a bride longing for her bridegroom. We’ll continue doing these things until He comes and then we shall ever be with the Lord. Maranatha, come quickly, Lord Jesus!
