“I Shall Return”

Posted: August 21, 2018 in Bible Prophecy, Holocaust, Israel, Replacement Theology, Tribulation

During World War II, General Douglas MacArthur had to leave the Philippines because of the Japanese threat.  But he said, “I shall return.”  Even though there was a possibility that something might go wrong, and he wouldn’t be able to return and rescue them, in God’s providence he did return and delivered them.

Promise. Before going to the cross to die for our sins…and rise again bodily from the dead on the third day, Jesus said to His disciples, “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God [the Father], believe also in Me. In my Father’s house are many mansions; it if were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a [single] place for [all of] you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also” (John 14:1-3).

Scoffers. Jesus said these words 2,000 years ago. The scoffers mock and say, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.” But with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. He’s long suffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. (2 Peter 3:3-9) What about you? Are you a true believer?

When Will Jesus Return?

Jesus said, “All that [God] the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out” (John 6:37). Since no one, except God, knows when this number will be complete, true Christians are supposed to keep glorifying God (i. e. making Him known to others) and sharing the Gospel with lost people until He returns (See 1 Corinthians 10:31).

Blinded. The Apostle Paul tells us that the unsaved Jewish people currently have a judicial blindness over their spiritual eyes, so that they don’t see and believe in Jesus as the Promised Messiah (Romans 11:25). They, as a nation, rejected Him since He didn’t fulfill their political expectations. In order for anyone to be saved today, whether he’s Jewish or not, he/she must believe in/on the Lord [His deity] Jesus [true humanity] Christ Who died for all our sins…and rose again bodily on the third day” (Acts 16:31; 1 Corinthians 15:3, 4). When a Jew or a non-Jew gets saved today, they both lose their unique distinctions and become one spiritual body in Christ (Galatians 3:28; Ephesians 2:15). There shouldn’t be “Jewish Christian Churches” and “Gentile Christian Churches.”

God isn’t finished with the Jewish nation (See Romans 9-11). God has not replaced the Jews with the Church (Replacement Theology) [1]. Those who believe this heresy will contribute to the worst holocaust in history. Are you and/or is your church doing this? Are you or is it involved in B.D.S. (Boycott, Divest, Sanction) Israel? If so, read Genesis 12:1-3 very carefully!

Adolph Hitler. Are you aware of the fact that Adolph Hitler was inspired by the anti-Semitic writings of Martin Luther “The Jews And Their Lies”? When Luther couldn’t convert the Jews to Christianity, he turned against them with a vengeance. [2]

Covenants. Before the Jews get all that God has promised to give to them in the “unconditional covenants,” (Example: the Promised Land – Genesis 15:18-21), they must go through “the time of Jacob’s [Israel’s] trouble” (Jeremiah 30:7). This will take place during last half of the upcoming “Seven Years Of Tribulation” that was predicted in the Old Testament (Daniel 9:27; See Matthew 24:15 ff; Revelation 12:13-17). This event seems to be right around the corner from where we are in time now (See our “Understanding The Times – Dispensation Chart” on our website).

How Will Jesus Return?

Confusion. Many people are confused today because they fail to realize that the “Rapture Of The Church” and the “Second Coming Of Christ” are two distinct events separated by seven years. One was a mystery during the Old Testament times (1 Corinthians 15:51, 5 2; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; Romans 16:25, 26). The other event was well known (1 Thessalonians 5:2). [3]

Why Will Jesus Return?

Promises. God will keep all His unconditional covenants (promises) that He made with Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and their descendants (Romans 15:4). If He doesn’t, then none of us as Christians can be assured that He will keep His promises to us either. But God cannot lie (Titus 1:2; John 14:6; 17:17).

Claim. When “all whom the Father has given to the Son, have come to Him” (John 6:37), God the Father will tell the God the Son to come back to claim His Bride, the True Church, and take us to the place that He has been preparing for all true Christians (John 14:1-3; Revelation 21:9 ff). Are you sure that you you be included in this group? Or will you be “left behind” to enter the “Seven Years of the Tribulation”? If you do, you will have a 50/50 chance of surviving it (See Revelation 6:8; 9;15)

Applications

Purpose. God doesn’t give us His Word just for our information, but for our transformation (2 Timothy 3:16, 17; Romans 12:1, 2). He won’t leave true believers in the condition in which He found us. He takes sinners of all kinds and washes them, sanctifies them, and justifies them (See 1 Corinthians 6:9-11). On our Wedding Day (Rapture) all true Christians will be presented to Him as a chaste virgin (2 Corinthians 11:2). The blood that Jesus shed on the cross (1 Peter 1:19), once and for all (Hebrews 10:10), to pay the debt we owed to God the Father (Romans 6:23), made it all possible for us to have Christ’s righteousness put to our account. Without it, we’d be condemned forever with the devil and his angels in the lake of fire (See John 16:8-11; Matthew 25:41, 46).

Help. We’re here to help you and others who are teachable and willing to change (2 Timothy 2:2, 15; 3:16, 17). We want you to make sure that you are saved and headed for heaven (1 John 5:13). We also want to help you grow spiritually (2 Peter 3:18), learn how to serve God by using your spiritual gift with love (Galatians 5:13; 1 Corinthians 13; 1 Peter 4:10). Discover the joy of leading someone else to Christ and earning the “Crown of Rejoicing” (1 Thessalonians 2:19, 20). We can be reached through our website: www.kelseypeach.com.
