|We are still continuing on Christ’s Return, which we have dubbed: Ready for His Return. Enjoy!|
SCRIPTURE TEXT: “Then if anyone tells you, ‘Look, here is the Messiah; or “There he is; don’t believe it. For false messiahs and false prophets will rise up and perform great signs and wonders so as to deceive, if possible, even God’s chosen ones. See, I have warned you about this ahead of time. “. (Mathew 24:23-25NLT)
World conditions will be so terrible that people will wonder if any relief will come, and this will give false Christ’s opportunities to deceive many. Satan is capable of performing lying wonders (2 Thes 2:9; Rev. 13:13-14). The fact that a religious leader can perform miracles is no assurance that he or she has come from God.
Even though Jesus performed true signs in His Father’s name, some people rejected Him (John 12:37-40), and interestingly, in the last days, many will accept Satan’s miracles.
We are not told what “the sign that the Son of Man is coming” that “will appear in heavens” (Matt 24:30) is, but the people on earth at that time will recognize it. When Jesus comes for the Church, He will come in the air, and His people will be caught up to meet Him there (1 Thes 4:17). But our Lord’s second coming will be a great public event, with every eye seeing Him.
