Return of the Son of Man

What’s it going to be like when the Son of Man returns?

Luke 21:25-28

We will all stand before his throne and be judged for what we have done.

Well, it’s certainly going to be very different to the first time he came – not a helpless baby, born in a humble stable, where only a few people witnessed his arrival – this time he will come in glory and triumph and everyone will see it. The vivid apocalyptic description of Revelation 19 depicts Jesus as the King of kings and Lord of Lords, arriving on a white horse, with the armies of heaven thundering behind him, his eyes’ blazing like fire, and a sword coming out of his mouth and striking down his enemies.


Last week I asked our teens in Sunday School why Jesus was coming back. Their answers were spot on. They said, “He’s coming to right all the wrongs”. In other words, he’s bringing final JUSTICE. We will all stand before his throne and be judged for what we have done.

They also said, “He’s coming to take us to be with him”. In other words, he’s bringing final SALVATION. He’s going to wipe away all our tears and suffering, give us new eternal bodies, and make his home permanently with us, his precious bride.


May our great hope of the return of Jesus fill us with faithful obedience to his call upon our lives.
