Jesus Will Come Again
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.
Jesus Will Come Again
For 2,000 years, we as believers have been waiting for the return of Christ. We don’t know when it will happen, but we should live as if it were today.
A day is coming when we will see the Lord Jesus face to face.
One of the greatest promises of scripture is the return of Christ. Jesus promised there would come a time when He would return for His followers. Since the day Jesus ascended into heaven, Christians have been looking forward to His return.
Prepared for You
When He returns, Jesus promised He would take us to a special place He has prepared for you and me. For 2,000 years, He has been making preparations for His bride (those who are His followers). As the bride of Christ, we will spend eternity in the place Christ has prepared for you and me.
When a couple was to be married in Jesus’ day, the groom would go and prepare a place for them to live. It might take weeks or months, but he would not return for his bride until everything was ready. The bride would be prepared at any time to receive her groom.
Jesus said He is preparing a place for each of us. As His followers, we will spend eternity in a dwelling place designed especially for us.
We don’t know the time, day, or even the year of His return. Anyone who tells you they know is mistaken. Our responsibility is to simply be ready. We are to live as though His return could be today.
When Christ returns, we will spend eternity in His presence. We will experience all the joys of a renewed earth and will reign and rule with Him forever.
Today, let me remind you that Jesus is coming. It may be today or tomorrow. It may be this week or in the distant future. We must be watching for His return the way the bride looks forward to her returning husband.
Look at that promise once again.
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. – John 14:3
Make these confessions.
- Jesus is preparing a special place for me in heaven.
- When He returns, I will spend eternity with Him.
- I don’t know when He will return, but I am living like it will be today.
- When He returns, He will establish His eternal kingdom.
In Jesus’ name,
Don’t lose hope. Jesus is coming. His return is close now than it has ever been. Live with your heart set on eternity, ready to meet the King of kings.

Great lesson today. And as school starts not only do we need to pray for our students, but we need to pray for our teachers as well.
