Return of Christ
The “BTD" says Jesus will return "Invisible”.
Matt. 24:30 "Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then ALL THE TRIBES OF THE EARTH will mourn and THEY WILL SEE the Son of Man COMING on the clouds.” Luke 21:27 says the same thing. Verse 26 says the sinners will see him and fear "men's hearts failing them from fear..." and. “... then THEY will SEE the son of Man coming...”
So we see that EVERYONE will see Him when Jesus returns "as the lightning flashes...”
Rev. 1:7 'He Is COMING with clouds and EVERY EYE WILL SEE HIM even they (the Jews) who pierced Him.”
2 John verse 7 "For many deceivers have gone out into the world who do NOT confess Jesus Christ as COMING IN THE FLESH. This is a DECEIVER and an ANTICHRIST
(The Gr. word for “Coming" is the exact same word as used in Matt. 16:28 “... will not taste death until they see the Son of Man COMING in His Kingdom.”
Also Matt. 24:30 & 26:64”...will see the Son of Man....COMING on the clouds”.
In fact every time this word is used, it refers to the second coming of Christ.
Anyone Not confessing that Jesus Christ is “Coming, in the flesh, on the clouds” is a deceiver and an antichrist.
2 Thess. 1:7-10 speaks of Jesus coming -”in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God. (Has this happened yet?) and Chapter 2 verses 1-8 tells us not to be "deceived”, His return will NOT COME until the Antichrist "the son or perdition" is revealed. This man will sit IN THE TEMPLE CLAIMING TO BE GOD (v. 4). Verse 8 says that Jesus will destroy this man with the "...breath of His mouth.. and the BRIGHTNESS of His coming.”
1 Thess. 4:16-17 shows that FIRST, the DEAD in Christ (deceased "born again” believers) will rise THEN those who are alive will “..meet the Lord in the air..” Please read your Bible, Christians WILL MEET JESUS IN THE AIR. The church has called this “Rapture." THEN His vengeance will be poured out on the earth (see Rev. 14:14-19 also Matt. 24:31).
So then, before Jesus destroys the Antichrist, and “those who did not receive the LOVE of the TRUTH that they may be SAVED..” (v.10) the saints (believers) will meet Jesus "in the air.”
Don't be deceived. when Jesus returns, everyone on earth will know it.
Matt. 24:39 In the days of Noah, they were "eating and drinking...and did not know until the flood came and took them ALL away, so ALSO WILL THE COMING OF THE SON OF MAN BE.” I assure you every human being on earth knew when the flood came. They did not know "until the day Noah entered the ark" In the same way, the people of today will not know UNTIL the day the saints "...meet the Lord in the air.”
Will you meet Jesus "in the air”? you MUST be "Born Again'.
2 Ptr. 3:4-7 speaks of scoffers who will question His coming forgetting that "..the world that then existed perished, being flooded by water” (v. 6) and that "..the earth which now exist is reserved for FIRE."
