Throughout both the Old and New Testament, there are numerous prophecies pointing to the return of the Messiah in power and glory. In the early church, a prevailing message was Jesus’s promise to return in the clouds. The knowledge that the Messiah would someday return and deliver Israel and the saints from the evils of this world has been a tremendous source of encouragement over the ages. The questions have been and continue to be, When will Jesus return? Have the signs of his return been fulfilled? Is the Messiah’s return imminent?
In this book, we will explore the scriptures that outline the signs that will precede the return of Jesus Christ in power and glory. In addition to looking at scriptures on the topic, we will look at current and historical events that may be significant.
Also, we will ask how this impacts Christians and how we should respond. In Matthew 25, Jesus tells a parable of a bridegroom and ten virgins. The bridegroom’s return was delayed so that the wedding party became drowsy and fell asleep. When he returned late in the night, only those who were ready went with him to the wedding feast. The others were left behind. As Christians, we need to be ready for Jesus’s return.
Come prepared to dig deep into scriptures and look forward to Jesus’s return!

I just finished reading THE MESSIAH’S IMMINENT RETURN. Since Jesus said only the Father in Heaven knows when that will be and scriptures do not reveal a specific timing, I didn’t know what to expect and kept wondering what would be the author’s “take” on that subject. I cannot over emphasize how pleased I am that this book is not an argument or even a presentation of any one viewpoint regarding the timing of Christ’s return. I found it to be a great learning experience that presents well-known theories with scriptures that reference the reasoning for each. This would be an excellent book for a Bible study. It may or may not change anyone’s viewpoint, but there is a need for greater understanding, rather than division, among believers. Most importantly, the author clearly points out “why” this subject is mentioned so often in scriptures. Regardless of one’s viewpoint, this book will awaken the reader’s awareness of what the scriptures do emphasize regarding Christ’s imminent return. Well written with excellent easy-to-read form for quoted (not reference only) scriptures! LMS
