Return of Christ Is Biblical
return of Christ
Jesus repeatedly put up reminder to be watchful of His return (Matthew 24:42, 24:44, 25:13). Since the Bible talks about salvation and is meant for all people, the reminder is also for all people. Jesus is giving time for all to be heard of the gospel (Matthew 24:14). And many have heard about Jesus but do not repent. Once He returns (Revelation 1:7, 19:11) it will be too late for people to repent.

Do not be divided by at what stage Jesus will return. Avoid arguing on at what stage Christians will be caught up. It is a future event so there should be not many details. Nobody can be sure of the details. We have to deploy critical thinking in this case. It is not good to say other Christians are bad due to different opinions on this topic. This topic does not affect salvation. The most important thing is we will see Jesus but we do not know when it will happen. Overinterpreting the Bible is counterproductive.
