That the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back to this earth some day, no honest believer in the Word of God can doubt.

Most emphatically, and unmistakably does the sacred page declare it. In the Old Testament, there are twenty times as many references to the second coming of Christ, as to His first coming. That is, twenty times as many references to His coming as a crowned King, seated upon the throne of David, ruling with a rod of iron, bringing victory and glory unto Jerusalem, and peace upon earth: as to His coming—a meek and lowly Jesus, wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities, and bleeding as a slain Lamb upon the cursed tree.

There are twenty times as many references to His coming with a crown, honored and worshiped by all the ends of the earth, as to His coming with a cross, and being wounded in the house of His friends. Thus it was that the Jews, who had been looking for the mighty King, failed to recognize the lowly Nazarene- and refuse to recognize Him to this day. And yet, the cross must ever precede the crown. If you dont bear the cross, you cant wear the crown. He came with the cross, fulfilling Isaiah 53: and now He is coming with a crown, the Messiah and King of Isaiah 9:7, and of Jeremiah 3:17. Not only did He come to the earth once—the Christ offered to bear the sins of many- but unto them that look for Him, shall He appear the second time.

Heb. 9:28. The New Testament declares His coming. In the 260 chapters of the New Testament, the second coming of Jesus Christ is definitely referred to 318 times. Some one has estimated that one out of every thirty verses is devoted to this great and glorious theme.

The Epistles of Paul, while referring to water baptism only 13 times, refer to the second coming 50 times. This is the blessed hope with which the members of the church body are told to comfort one another. Every time you repeat the Lords prayer, you are praying for Christs return. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. How can there be a kingdom without a King, or His righteous reign be established upon the earth till Christ returns to rout the hosts of darkness, cast down Satanic rule, and wield His own dear sceptre oer the lands?

The last prayer in the Bible is a great heart throbbing cry for His return. Even so, Lord Jesus, come quickly. And the answer still rings from Heaven—Surely I come quickly- and My reward is with Me. Jesus Himself promised that He would return, saying: And if I go away (to prepare a place for you) I will come again. What could be plainer than this statement of our Lord? If I go away—I will come again. Did He go away ? Yes. Acts 1:9 is careful to give us a clear description of our Lords departure from this earth.

And when He had spoken these things, while they beheld he was taken up and a cloud received him out of their sight. If I go away—Yes, there He goes, slowly, majestically, the literal, visible Jesus is ascending into the heavens. Higher, higher He rises, up and up till the clouds receive Him out of their sight.

And there stand the disciples watching Him go. Ah, there He goes, my beautiful Master, methinks the voice of John the Beloved must have mourned, when will I ever rest my head upon His loving breast again? Lord, Lord, when shall I again gaze into Thy precious face, sit at Thy feet and hear Thy tender voice? Mary the sister of Martha must have sobbed. Gone—gone! My Lord is gone!—But what was that He said?—If I go away, I will come again. He has surely gone away- but will He come again? Hark!

Who is that, that speaketh now—: ...
