Prophecy and the Return of Christ - It is estimated that there are more than three hundred prophecies in the Bible concerning the first coming of Christ — and about eight times as many concerning His Second Coming. The New Testament mentions it at least 318 times in 210 chapters and there can be no doubt that saints throughout the ages have always "looked for His appearing."
This is no new doctrine dreamed up by some feverish theological brain. Even that Old Testament saint, Enoch — just seven generations from Adam — looked way beyond his time and prophesied concerning the Second Coming of Christ. This godly man, who walked so close to the Lord that he just walked right into His Presence one day (Gen. 5:24), said: "Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints” (Jude verse 14 KJV).
The inspired Scriptures tell us that the Lord Jesus Christ will return personally. "This same Jesus” (Acts 1:11) will come again in a literal and visible manner.
Genuine Christians will be the first to meet Him.
"Prophecy and the Return of Christ" takes a closer look at some of these prophecies.
