Look, He is coming with the clouds, and EVERY eye will see...even those who pierced Him...(Revelation 1:7)
END TIMES DECEPTION
The Lord has spoken to us through His holy word and warned us that in the last days false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect, which Christ said would not be possible. However, it is important that disciples study the Word of God to understand what the signs of His coming will be. In the book of Timothy God advises us to "Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who CORRECTLY handles the word of truth." (2 Timothy 1:15)
So what are the signs that we are to acknowledge WILL occur before the return of the Son of Man? It is wise for the follower to commit these to memory.
* The sun will be darkened.
* The moon will not give its light.
* The stars will fall from the sky.
* The heavenly bodies will be shaken. (Mt. 24:29, cf. Joel 2:21, 3:15 and Isa. 13:9-10)
At THAT time the Son of Man will appear in the sky and we will see Him "coming on the clouds" with great power and great glory. We can have confidence that the Lord WILL NOT return until we experience these astral phenomena.
