The Return

 

Today, the reply presents the words of Jesus Christ about his return to harvest the earth of those belonging to divinity through his name. No specific date or hour has been proclaimed by divinity for the return of Jesus Christ to the earth; and acknowledgment of Christ must go forward as the manifesting of faith and holiness along with the other inseparable aspects from the image of GOD (e.g., longsuffering; lovingkindness; oneness without sameness; personhood; wisdom; wrath against sin). There must be the continuance of gradual growth for those who are born again in addition to discovery, fellowship, enduring hardship, repentance, and unselfish service. A fighter in the “Yahoo! Answers” public forum on Religion and Spirituality who uses the ID “Father Ben Dover” (Level 1 with 42 points, a member since February 08, 2015) posted the following:

 

When do you think Jesus is coming for us?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour? Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. (Matthew 26: 40-41, King James Version, KJV)

 

THE DOUBLE DAGGER: Preparing For The Rapture (11/09/2018); A Short Time Left (10/30/2018); Christian Beliefs Are Forward-looking (09/23/2018); “The End Is Near” (03/14/2018); The Most Important Thing (12/28/2017); “Occupy Till I Come” (08/30/2017); Waiting For His Appearing (02/09/2016); Christ Coming Soon? (10/16/2015); If You Knew When? (09/17/2015)

 

Father Ben Dover”, the revelation of GOD to mankind has included in depth sacred knowledge pertaining to the birth, ministry, death, eternal purpose, and resurrection of Jesus Christ; yet, there is no proclamation of a specific day and time of his Advent (we also say, his appearing; the Rapture; Second Coming). To avoid error and spiritual confusion, developing and mature Christian believers are encouraged to rely on the things declared through the holy writings, rather than depend on conjecture, speculation, and personal opinions. The guidance and instruction given the apostles and elders for the church are intended to ensure continuity of the ministry, and the further unfolding of repentance, salvation, and new creation as a lifestyle providing sacred opportunities and possibilities that conform to divine law. Consider again the following that uses language from the Bible:

1. Deuteronomy 29: 29, King James Version (KJV): 29 The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.

2. Matthew 24: 3-8, KJV: 3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? 4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. 5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.

3. Matthew 24: 24-31, KJV: 24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. 25 Behold, I have told you before. 26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. 27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together. 29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: 30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

4. Matthew 24: 35-37, KJV: 35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. 36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. 37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, 5. Mark 13: 31-33, KJV: 31 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away. 32 But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. 33 Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.
