Coming Soon!

“Coming Soon!” is a popular phrase used by marketers, whether it’s to promote an upcoming movie, or announce the release of a new book, or describe the future home of a new business on a property sign.

But one day this phrase will forever and only be associated with one event: the soon return of our Lord Jesus Christ.

He will come suddenly: As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man…  [People] knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.”           (Matt. 24:37-39)

He will come unexpectedly: So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect Him.” (Matt. 24:44)

He will come visibly: For as lightning that comes from the east is visible even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man…all the nations of the earth…will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky, with power and great glory.” (Matt. 24:27, 30b)

Until that glorious day, we affirm Christ’s soon return with the words from Job 19:25-27: “I know that my Redeemer lives, and that in the end He will stand upon the earth…I myself will see Him with my own eyes…How my heart yearns within me!”
