Jesus is coming back soon, but before Christ is come, a falling away is first.
"Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition" 2 Thessalonians 2:1-2.
It is obvious that the Lord Jesus Christ is coming soon, and that we all shall be gathered together to him, but
he shall come on a day we not aware of. May the Lord please direct your heart "into the love of God, and into the patiently waiting for Christ."
Waiting doesn’t mean you should stop your day to day work. Paul said, "Neither did we eat any man's bread for nought; but wrought with labour and travail night and day, that we might not be chargeable to any of you...to make ourselves an ensample unto you to follow us" 2 Thessalonians 3:8-9. He said, "brethren, be not weary in well doing", but work! This he said because some believers had stopped working, saying we are waiting for the Lord. They had become busybodies, eating only in other believers’ houses. But he commanded - eat your own bread, sleep in your own houses! He said, "For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat" 2 Thessalonians 3:10.
Is the day of the Lord at hand? Even if he is standing at the door - he must find you so doing, not a busybody, but working with your own hands and eating your own bread - "But ye, brethren, be not weary in well doing" 2 Thessalonians 3:13.
"Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God" 2 Thessalonians 2:3.
Antichrist is not one, but there are many antichrists; their job is to deceive. Watch, that no man deceives you. Before Christ comes back; there comes a falling away first, that man of sin is revealed first, the son of perdition with all deceivableness of unrighteousness, he will sit in the temple of God.
Simple Gospel Summation
WHEN HE SHALL RETURN!
Jesus went to heaven to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return.
When he comes, having received the kingdom, then he will command his angels to gather together all his elect to himself, and give them rewards.
He shall command those servants he gave gifts to appear before him first, and each will give an account of "how much everyone has gained by trading" Luke 19:15.
On that day he will simply want to reward us, and say to you, well done, "thou good servant..." Luke 19:17. But if you find yourself standing on the left; he said, those are my enemies, "which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me" Luke 19:27. But those one the right were "full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy" James 3:17, and verse 18 says, "the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace," and "being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God." Colossians 1:10.
Anyway, the elect will receive prizes for their faithfulness, loyalty, fruitfulness, love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, and faith. In John 14:2-3 he says, "In my Father's house are many mansions.....I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also."
You will be received for your fruit thereof.
