" HE Came, HE Went Back, and HE Will Come Again ! "

HE is the most important person WHO ever lived.

* HE CAME

HIS first coming was so important that even now, 2,000+ years later, we plan for the celebration of HIS birth by a month of feverish activity. We call HIS birthday Christmas.
HE was crucified at the early age of 33. Before HIS death HE had spent only three years speaking to the people. Why is HE important ?

* HE WENT BACK

Three days after HIS death, HE arose from the grave and was seen on many occasions by a total of over 500 people.
Then HE physically ascended into Heaven ! How could all this be ? What is HE doing now ?

* HE WILL COME AGAIN !

On many occasions during HIS life and after HIS resurrection HE clearly stated that HE will come again. Since everything predicted about HIS first coming has come true, and everything that HE said has come true, it is certain that HE will return.
Obviously all this could not happen to a mere man. And these events are important to know simply because JESUS CHRIST is both GOD and man.

** HE CAME

HE came the first time to solve the basic problem of mankind: the sin-problem which separates GOD and man.
HIS teachings are wonderful. You can read the story of HIS life in two hours in one of the short books (called Gospels) written by Matthew, Mark, Luke, or John.
But more important than what HE said is what HE did. Although HE was perfectly good, HE took the punishment due us because of our sins. HE died for us. Those who accept HIM as their substitute will not have to pay for their sins. This is GOD's plan for rescuing mankind.
GOD the FATHER showed HIS approval of JESUS' work, on the cross, by raising HIM from the dead. Death is the result of sin. By conquering sin, JESUS defeated Death !

** HE WENT BACK

After proving beyond any doubt that HE was physically alive, JESUS returned to HIS FATHER in Heaven. HE is there now. HE watches as HIS church spreads throughout the world. HE helps HIS followers. HE rules everything - every nation and person and event - to guide history to the point where HE will return.

** HE WILL COME AGAIN !

When JESUS comes again, HE won't come as a weak baby in a poor stable. HE will come in majesty and honor ! HE won't come to be crucified. HE will come as KING of the Universe ! Everyone who has ever lived will be brought before HIM for judgment.
How will you stand in that judgment ? The key to your being acquitted or condemned is whether or not you have honored HIM (JESUS, GOD in the Flesh) in this life by believing the Gospel in HIS WORD:
" Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the Gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that CHRIST died for our sins according to the Scriptures; and that HE was buried, and that HE rose again the third day according to the Scriptures; And that HE was seen of Cephas (Peter), then of the twelve: after that, HE was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep (have died). " (1st.Corinthians 15:1-6).
JESUS is GOD. HE came once to conquer evil. HE will come again to reward those who believe and condemn those who reject HIM in unbelief !
Are you ready for HIS coming ?

" And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: So CHRIST was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for HIM shall HE appear the second time without sin unto Salvation. " (Hebrews 9:27-28)

" PREPARE TO MEET THY GOD ! " (Amos 4:12)

Your servant in CHRIST,
Julie
