Return of the King

"In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And when I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also" (John 14:2,3).

These were the words of the Lord Jesus Christ, who promised his followers that he will return one day to receive them to the home in heaven. Our Lord, who once came to the world to be the ransom for sin, is coming back a second time. He will return as the King of kings, with great power and glory. Together with him will be thousands and thousands of saints and heavenly hosts.

His coming will be a terrifying sight for those who have rejected him as Lord. "Behold, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him, every one who pierced him; and all tribes of the earth will wail on account of him" (Revelation 1:7). No one may be able to escape the wrath of the Great King.

But the Lord's coming is a day believers eagerly look forward to. The Savior will welcome them home, and "he will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning nor crying nor pain any more, for the former things have passed away." (Revelation 21:4). This day will bring about the ultimate fulfillment of the Christian hope.
