Jesus

Jesus is coming soon

“Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.”(Bible, Genesis 28:15) Instead, the Bible advises you to be spiritually prepared for judgment at any moment and to put your trust in God that He will make everything right in the end. Jesus left no doubt that He will return again to complete His mission of salvation for mankind: “Don’t be troubled. You trust God, now trust in Me. There are many rooms in My Father’s home, and I am going to prepare a place for you. If this were not so, I would tell you plainly. When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with Me where I am.” (Bible, John 14:1-4)

When Will Jesus Come Again?

The Bible tells of many events that will occur before the Second Coming and which will be signs that the end is near. There will be wars, famines, earthquakes, false prophets, persecutions, and an increase in wickedness.
“Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all things take place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away.” (Bible, Luke 21:32-33)
“And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world for a witness to all the nations, and then the end shall come.” (Bible, Matthew 24:14)
Christians believe that Jesus is alive today. They also believe that He has been resurrected already, and that He will never die again. The Muslim position, however, is that He never died, and therefore is still alive. It says in the Quran, that the Jews claim:
“We killed Jesus Christ, the son of Mary, Messenger of God.”
However, God denies this, as the verse continues:
“But they killed Him not, nor crucified Him; It was only a likeness shown to them: Most certainly they killed Him not. Rather, God lifted Him up to Himself.” (Quran 4:157-8)
This action of lifting is literally an upward movement, physically being taken from the earth into heavens, just as He will be physically brought back on the wings of angels from the heavens to the earth when he returns. Christians estimate his age to be 31-33 years of age at ascension, because the synoptic Gospels are considered to describe approximately 1 year of his life. The Gospel of John purportedly describes 3 years of His life from the moment He began preaching, of which Luke says:

“And Jesus Himself began to be about 30 years of age, being (as was supposed) the son of Joseph … and (he) was led by the spirit into the wilderness.” (Bible, Luke 3:23 and 4:1)

Muslim scholars agree. It is said, “Jesus was 34, and other people said, “He was 33,” when He was lifted up to heaven.

“And there is none of the People of the Book but will believe in Him before His death, and on the Day of Judgment, He will be a witness against them.” (Quran 4:159)

God, here, is talking about the ‘People of the Book’ believing in Jesus before the latter dies well after he was lifted up into the heavens. The implication is that He is not yet dead. In fact, He is securely kept by God until He completes his appointed term. As God says in the Quran:

“It is God Who takes away the Souls at the time of their death, and (the souls) of those that die not during their sleep. He keeps those for which He has ordained death and sends the rest for a term appointed.” (Quran 39:42)

And:

“It is God Who takes away the souls at night, and has knowledge of all that you have done by day, and raises you up again that a term appointed be fulfilled; then will you be returned unto Him. Then He will inform you of all that you used to do.” (Quran 60:60)

‘The term appointed’ conforms the numbered days of our lives, already known and confirmed by God. The word “to take away” is a promise made by God to Jesus which God will do when His messenger is threatened by disbelief. The Quran informs us that He told Jesus:

“Indeed I will take you (away) and lift you up to Myself and purify you from those who disbelieve…” (Quran 3:55)

Thus you have a promise of God fulfilled when He saved Jesus from crucifixion, and another that will be fulfilled when He returns Jesus to earth and he completes His life here – a promise confirmed in the revelation given to Mary at the annunciation:

“God gives you tidings of a word from Him, whose name will be Jesus Christ, son of Mary, held in honor in the world and in the hereafter, and one of those who are nearest (to God). He shall speak to the people in infancy and when middle-aged, and shall be of the righteous.” (Quran 3:45-46)

Since middle-aged is older than the early thirties, this prophecy concerns his speaking to the people after His return. So this second promise (that everyone will believe in him before he dies) concerns His second mission when he descends to earth again. When He arrives, He will be the same age as He left, and then He will live for another forty years. The Prophet, may the mercy and blessings of God be upon Him, said:

“There is no prophet between Me and Him (Jesus), and He shall descend. He… will stay in the world for forty years………..”

Jesus, Himself, said no one would be able to predict exactly when He would return:

“No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. Be on guard! Be alert! You do not know when that time will come.”(Bible, Mark 13:32-33)

The event, when it happens, will be swift and unexpected:

So you also must be ready, because the Lord will come at an hour when you do not expect Him. (Bible, Matthew 24:43-44)
