再臨の目的 What Is the Reason for the Second Coming?





President Trump is due to arrive in Japan today (November 5th).

Why do you think he is coming here?

It is said that he is planning to talk with Prime Minister Abe about the North Korea problem, future relationships and trade between the two countries and also to play golf together.

Why does Jesus plan to come back to this earth again? What is His purpose?










自分の行ないに応じてさばかれた。 「見よ。わたしはすぐに来る。わたしはそれぞれのしわざに応じて報いるために、わたしの報いを携えて来る。黙示録 20:12、22:12



1. For judgement. “So then, each of us will give an account of himself to God.” Romans 14:12.

In this life there are many occasions which are unfair, when effort and good behavior are not rewarded.

Frequently, it seems that a good person suffers and a bad person prospers.

We all know examples of an honest man working hard but seeing little reward whereas another person slacks off and is not always honest but becomes wealthy.

There are many who break the law and hurt other people but somehow escape being caught. People are often discriminated against because of their ethnicity, family, gender or age. Our future is often determined according to the country or family we were born into. In this way, there are many occasions in life which are unfair. However, when Jesus returns or after a person dies we must all be judged according to our deeds.

“The dead were judged according to what he had done.” “Behold, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done.” Revelations 20:12, 22:12.

Satan and his cohorts who have rebelled against God and deceived people causing them to turn their backs on God, will be destroyed.“The devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulphur. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.” Revelations 20:10.




それは御子を信じる者が、ひとりとして滅びることなく、永遠のいのちを持つためである。 御子を信じる者はさばかれない。信じない者は神のひとり子の御名を信じなかったので、すでにさばかれている。ヨハネ3:16,18





2. To meet believers. Those who believe Jesus and have their sins washed away by the blood of the Cross have their names written in the Book of Life.

In other words, they will escape the judgement and will be able to enter heaven.

“Whoever believes in Jesus shall not perish but will have eternal life. Whoever believes in Him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God`s one and only Son.” John 3:16, 18.

Before Jesus returns there will be wars, earthquakes and abnormal weather patterns resulting in drought, floods, violence, increase in crime and decline in morals.  This world will become a difficult place to live in.

Jesus will come and rescue His children from this tribulation so the day of His return is a day of hope and joy to those who are Christians.

“For the Lord Himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up with Him in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.” I Thessalonians 4:16. 17.







3. Establishment of God`s kingdom. Jesus will come back and meet with those who have been resurrected and those Christians still living and establish God`s kingdom which He will rule for one thousand years.

For the period of the one thousand year rule, Satan will be unable to work so it will a period of peace with no war.

Our bodies will be changed from those subject to decay to ones which will not decay, so there will be no more sickness and poor health.

It will be a time when it becomes literally heaven on earth.

I Corinthians 15:52 -54. “The dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.” “They will be priests of God and Christ and will reign with Him for a thousand years.” Revelation 20:4, 5, 6.
