Bible Prophecy: Time and Place of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ

Many people have different opinions about the time and place of the second coming of the Lord. Some people think the Lord will appear again in Israel; some think the Lord will descend from clouds to reveal Himself to all people. But God’s work is wonderful and hard to fathom. Where God appears and when He appears are out of our imaginations. We shouldn’t define God’s work willingly by our imaginations, but should seek humbly and learn to listen to the voice of God. There are many prophecies recording the time and place of the Lord’s second coming in the Bible. Here are some selected verses, and we hope they can answer questions and remove doubts for you.
