Jesus' Return Prophecy

Jesus Will Return Soon Vow

Speaking of "He whom they pierced" ... Check out this awesome prophecy which was given around 500 years before it happened. Pay close attention to these words ... They shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for Him. It is speaking about Jesus, the Word of God, speaking through the Prophet that they would crucify Him.

Zechariah 12:10

And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of Grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for Him, as one mourneth for His only Son, and shall be in bitterness for Him, as one that is in bitterness for His firstborn.

Cool huh? They did pierce Jesus' hand's and feet. Jesus was the firstborn of God and His only Son. But, the most intriguing aspect of this prophecy is the pronouns used ... They shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for Him. Remember this prophet foretold of this event 500 years before it happened at Jesus' first visit. That reminds me of this Scripture:

Luke 1:68-70

68Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for He hath visited and redeemed His people,
69And hath raised up an horn of salvation for us in the house of His servant David;
70As he spake by the mouth of His holy prophets, which have been since the world began:

This is the first time that the Lord Jesus returns to Earth after He died for our sins on the Cross, Resurrected from the dead and rose to Heaven.

We will will call this blessed and marvelous event the First Rapture. To completely understand what we will look into next, you should take this Raptures field trip.

After the Great Tribulation Jesus will return again to gather the Jewish believers and those Gentiles who became believers during the Great Tribulation and take them to Heaven. (This is the 2nd Rapture.)

31 When the Son of man shall come in His glory, and all the Holy Angels with Him, then shall He sit upon the throne of His glory:
32 And before Him shall be gathered all nations: and He shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
33 And He shall set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left.
34 Then shall the King say unto them on His right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

Matthew 24:30-31

2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.
3 Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when He fought in the day of battle.
4 And His feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.

Revelation 19:11-16

11 And I saw Heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and He that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns; and He had a name written, that no man knew, but He Himself.
13 And He was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and His name is called The Word of God.
14 And the armies which were in Heaven followed Him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
15 And out of His mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it He should smite the nations: and He shall rule them with a rod of iron: and He treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
16 And He hath on His vesture and on His thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

Jesus' Return Victory

Reason Why Jesus Returns

The Lord will be victorious in that day of Jesus' return, as He conquers all evil from the face of the earth with the Sword of Truth, which is His Word.

Revelation 19:17-21

17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;
18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.
19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.
20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of Him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of His mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

Isaiah 28:14-19

14 Wherefore hear the word of the Lord, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem.
15 Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:
16 Therefore thus saith the Lord God, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.
17 Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place.
18 And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it.
19 From the time that it goeth forth it shall take you: for morning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night: and it shall be a vexation only to understand the report.

What Happens When Jesus Returns Hope

Jesus Will Return Soon Warning

God is addressing rulers of Jerusalem. They made a covenant with death and hell, so the Lord placed a cornerstone, a tried stone, sure foundation, and he that believeth shall not make haste. Their covenant with death and hell will be disannulled when the overflowing scourge shall pass thru, then shall ye be trodden down by it.

Psalms 110:1-4

1 The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.
2 The Lord shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies.
3 Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth.
4 The Lord hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.

The Word of the Lord through the prophet Amos tells us that we can hope the Lord Jesus will return soon, but that we shouldn't anticipate the Day of the Lord with welcome. In other words, we should not be excited about it because it will be horrific times before it is finished.

Amos 5:18-20

18 Woe unto you that desire the day of the Lord! to what end is it for you? the day of the Lord is darkness, and not light.
19 As if a man did flee from a lion, and a bear met him; or went into the house, and leaned his hand on the wall, and a serpent bit him.
20 Shall not the day of the Lord be darkness, and not light? even very dark, and no brightness in it?
