We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ’s promise that He will return (John 14:1-3). This promise was echoed by the apostles (I Thess. 4:15-16). Members of the Church are commanded to prepare for Christ’s return for no one knows exactly when that would be, except God, the Father (Matt. 24:36, 42, 44).
Christ, however, knew and told us the signs that herald His return and these are wars, famines, earthquakes in different places, as well as increasing hardships and wickedness, which will cause many people’s love for God to grow cold (Matt. 24:6-8, 12). The day of Christ’s return is the Day of Judgment and destruction of ungodly men.
On that day, the heavens will pass away with a loud noise, and the elements will be dissolved with fire and be burned up (II Pet. 3:7, 10). The cry on the day of the Lord will be bitter, for even the bravest of people will cry out in despair. Neither their silver nor gold will be able to save them on the day of the Lord’s wrath (Zeph. 1:14, 18).
