Matthew 24 : 44 says, " In such an hour as ye think not the son of man cometh." Our Lord Jesus Christ is still coming back to this earth, His coming is imminent and anytime from now, He may return to establish His millennium reign of peace on this earth.
While He was with His disciples, after His resurrection, on the high mount Olive, Jesus blessed his disciples and assured them of sending Holy Spirit to them, as Jesus was talking to his disciples, suddenly, He began to be lifted up from the ground, His voice began to faint, and by the time His disciples opened their eyes, they saw Jesus ascending to heaven, they all gazed at Him until the clouds covered Him. (Acts 1 : 9-10). They all felt bad because they thought they would not be able to see their Lord again.
Meanwhile, the Lord sent His angels to console and comfort his disciples before they left the side of the Mount Olive. The angels said, " Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, which is taken up from into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven." (Acts 1 :11). When the disciples heard this, they were relieved of their burdens and went straight to Jerusalem.
Our Lord Jesus Christ has gone to heaven more than two thousand years ago, His coming for the second time is very close, we need to be ready for the coming of Messiah because, His coming is imminent, either one likes or wants it or not, Jesus Christ is coming back to this earth to establish a millennium reign of peace whereby all saints of the Lord will reign with Him.
How do we make ourselves ready for the second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ? We must be freed from sin, accepting Jesus Christ as our Saviour and obeying the words of God on daily basis.
May the good Lord make you and I ready for the second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
