Question

 

Dear Gramps,

I have a good question, and that question is when will Jesus come again. I am looking forward to when He will come. I have spiritual feelings about Him. And another question I have is, how will He come? Will He come down from the sky like an angel? Or will He come to the Earth by horse? I believe I even went to the church website and found no information on the exact date of the Second Coming. But if you could find some information, that would be nice.

Thanks.

Liam

 

Answer

 

Dear Liam,

Regarding the timing of the Lord’s coming, please see these two articles I’ve written previously:

Can we determine the timing of the 2nd coming by defining meridian of time?

How are we to understand the predictions of the second coming of the Savior as recorded in the scriptures?

Regarding the manner of his coming, while complete details haven’t been given, these scriptures give us a good idea (no mention of a horse, only of the Lord descending):

… this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven. Acts 1:11

For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven …  Thessalonians 4:16

…and they shall see the Son of Man coming in the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory;  JST Matthew 1:36

A study of the scriptures which discuss the Second Coming of Christ may interest you as well.

Best regards,

 

Gramps
