Why Is Jesus Coming?
We all recognize that evil, hatred, and injustice exist in this world. They result from human disobedience to God. Our disobedience has a consequence: separation from God that leads to death, suffering, and eternal hopelessness.
Yet God, out of His mercy, prepared a way to save us: through the Lord Jesus Christ. He gives us the present time to accept the salvation He offers. The Lord Jesus will come again for the ultimate fulfillment of His salvation plan.
To receive the saved
Those who have believed and kept faith with the Lord Jesus will enter into His kingdom; to abide with Him forever and enjoy a heavenly reward.
To judge the unrepentant
Even though people don't always face the consequences of their actions in their lifetime, the Lord will settle all accounts at the end. Our existence doesn't end at death. After we die, we all face judgment. Those faithful to God will be credited as righteous. Those who have disregarded His commands will be condemned.
To destroy all physical existence and establish His eternal kingdom
People often think of fire and brimstone when they hear of “Judgment Day.” Truth is, the world we live in is corruptible. The physical world, because of the evil in it, cannot last forever. God will put an end to all that offends His perfect and just nature. This decaying world will cease to exist. God, who is spirit, will establish an everlasting spiritual kingdom. The righteous will reside there forever, in His presence, in His glory.
And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away. (Rev 21:4)
