Year after year with “tireless regularity and eternal patience,” God reminds the world every Christmas tha the sent his Son, Jesus, to save lost mankind. Christmas is also God’s reminder that Jesus is coming back to earth for all who have accepted him as their personal Lord and Savior.

His first coming is an indisputable fact of history. His second coming to end this world age is as certain. According to Bible scholars, there are 1,845 references in the Old Testament and 318 in the New Testament about Christ’s coming again. This means for every prophecy in the Bible about Christ’s first coming–every one of which was fulfilled in minute detail–there are eight about his second coming!

Jesus is coming again. God has promised this in his Word, the Bible. Jesus himself promised it as well. And all the signs that Jesus and the Bible said would immediately precede his return are evident today, also reminding us that Christ’s return could be very soon.

If it were today, would you be ready?
