But hey - your day is coming when all Bible believers will be gone. I'm sure you will enjoy it if you are physically alive.
That is because you know it is true, whether you number yourself with them or not. The reason i brought your statement up about Christ removing himself from the country(from another thread) was to show you, that statement numbers you among those rejecting the heart of the ministry of Christ which is to reach the world God so loves, how possibly could that happen if you believe Christ is removing himself?.

Default From what i understand

Jesus is in his Kingdom, and this is what he had to say about that Kingdom....




"In those days many will say,..Look over there is the Kingdom of God, and Look, here is the Kingdom of God, but I say, the Kingdom of God does not come by observation, for the Kingdom of God is within you."


So it seems by his words, that he won't have to travel far, to return.

Do not be frightened and do not be dismayed for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.

I find at Luke 17:20-21 Jesus is talking to his enemy Pharisees.
Surely God's Kingdom (Daniel 2:44) is Not inside 'within' those hate-filled Pharisees.
Jesus was within their presence, and what was within those Pharisees is what Jesus said at Mark 7:21-23.
After Jesus concludes what he says to the Pharisees at Luke 17:20-21, then Jesus addresses his disciples at the next verse found at Luke 17:22.

As far as Not travel far, please notice Luke 19:11-15 because Jesus is the Nobleman that goes away to a 'far country' (Heaven) before he later returns.

Every eye can also be with the mind's eye of understanding - Revelation 1:7 - or as Ephesians 1:18 says the eyes of your understanding..... After all, as Jesus said at John 14:19 the world would see Jesus No more.....

But we do see and will see as it is happening the fulfillement of Jesus' words .
We are at the ' final phase ' of Matthew 24:14; Acts 1:8 because we see the proclaiming about the good news of God's kingdom government (Daniel 2:44) is now being done on a vast international scale as never before in history.
Plus, that means we are nearing the ' final signal', so to speak, of 1st Thess. 5:2-3 when the ' powers that be ' will be saying, "Peace and Security..." as the precursor of the coming great tribulation of Rev. 7:14 before Jesus, as Prince of Peace, will usher in global Peace on Earth among persons of goodwill.

So it seems by his words, that he won't have to travel far, to return.
God has two sons, two kingdoms, '' YOU.'' The first born of flesh is called Ephraim who stands in the west, the other son is named Judah who stands in the East and he represents the second born son of spirit.....

When Jesus comes, he comes to the inner man of the east named Judah, and the brilliance of his coming is so bright that it is seen all the way through to the outer man of the west named Ephraim. This is why Jesus says that the coming of the son of man is as the lightning that comes to the East and is seen all the way to the west........ All those first Christians were running a race to progressively make it to the coming of the son of man in their own lives.

All of Matthew 24 and 25 is about Jesus coming to you in this lifetime.

Revelation begins with the first sentence saying that everything written within the book must shortly come to pass.

The last thing Revelation says is that everything in the book must shortly come to pass.......


Revelation is written to every generation giving instruction how one begins on Rosh Hashanah to make it to the coming day of the Lord. Those 7 linen wraps are on you, it's how they wrap a dead man, and Revelation is showing how you go through a slow resurrection as a cocoon is unwrapped. The first wrap is taken off and you hear the first trumpet and the first bowl is poured out in you.

The seals wrap the body of flesh, the trumpets are heard in the soul, and the bowls pour out spirit.

32 “Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. 33 Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it[e] is near, right at the door. 34 Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened.

Jesus said he will return and be VISIBLE in the sky to where the whole earth will see him. He said it would happen to the generation of people he was speaking to.

Preterism isn't the answer either; Jesus said his return would be visible to all the tribes of the earth. VISIBLE.
