That first coming of our Lord was awaited and anticipated by true believers. Hundreds of prophetic promises were given before Jesus was born. From His birth in the manger to His death, burial and resurrection, some scholars say that Jesus of Nazareth fulfilled over three hundred specific prophecies.
Most people in the world were not prepared for His arrival nor how quickly His actual ministry passed before them. Therefore, we must eagerly await and anticipate His promised second coming! The Biblical prophecies pertaining to Jesus’ return are abundant and we can confidently anticipate the second coming, because of the fulfilled promises of Christ’s first coming—in the manger, in Bethlehem.
