Proper Studying : Did Jesus Says He Was Coming Back Again? by paxonel(m): 10:06am On May 15, 2023
Did Jesus says he was coming back again, like we will see him coming physically the way he went up the clouds in Acts 1:9 ?

Acts 1:9 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.

Did he say he was going to come back in this manner?

Acts 1:10 And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel;
Acts 1:11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.


Is that so? grin

Then, if it is so, how come Ecclesiastes is saying something contradictory and what Ecclesiastes said, proves to be true even up till today?

Ecclesiastes 1:4 One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth abideth for ever.

Or, is it that the two men passed the wrong information to the disciples or they never put into consideration Ecclesiastes 1:4 ?

And, who were these two men?
Let's assume they were angels.
Why didn't Jesus himself said so before he ascended, how come it was two angels that said so?

Obviously, there is something figurative about that statement by the two angels that needs interpretation. Because, if Christians take that statement the way it was said which contradicts Ecclesiastes 1:4 ,they will only continue to deceive themselves waiting for nothing.

Because, Ecclesiastes having said the earth remains forever confirms that God's kingdom abides forever. And we all know that God's kingdom is on this earth. (Read Jesus parable about God's kingdom in Luke 19:11-27).

Which explains why we are still here on earth today even after 2000 years ago the two angels had said Jesus was going to come in that manner he ascended.
Like i have said before, 2000 years is not soon, it's pretty a long period. Obviously, it will continue like this forever.

Now here is the point, Jesus will come back again soon, no doubt, but certainly not in that manner he descended up.
it simply means that we will all die someday, it might be soon.Hence the coming of Jesus.

Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

I think that statement by the two men was meant to console the disciples and made them feel that they were not left alone after Jesus had gone.

Please go about your normal life, region is deception

Jesus' resurrection and exist was secretive, only his faithful disciples saw the materialized spirit body ascending to heaven.
So in like manner when Jesus returns only his faithful disciples will know and that will be through the signs he foretold! Matthew 24:3-14

His disciples asked him "what will be the sign of your presence and the conclusion of system of things?" {Matthew 24:3} this is because when Jesus leaves this planet he will return to his spirit life so he can't be seen physically anymore but his presence will be felt because he will continue the works he established in the first century so faithful people throughout the earth will notice that someone powerful is working but invisible only his works will be seen! smiley

so, that means the so called faithful people do not believe that Jesus will return to earth from the clouds the same way he was ascended?

Of course they believe but only his disciples by the time he returned will know because he will return as a spirit being not physical, remember that after his execution and resurrection only his faithful disciples can see him that is because he is no longer human but a spirit. He only put on a materialized body for his disciples to see that he has resurrected from the dead and he keeps forming different bodies that's why at times his disciples who knew him very well later found it difficult to recognize him! smiley
