How is Jesus going to show himself, in the sky to everyone all at once, when he returns?
If you study descriptions of the heavenly tabernacle, you'll see that it is actually above the earth hidden by the heavens. When Jesus comes back the heavens will be rent, like a curtain, just like the curtain in the temple was rent when Jesus died on the cross. This is how everyone will see Him all at once.
The following scriptures are descriptions of this:
Then God said, “Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.” Thus God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament; and it was so. And God called the firmament Heaven. So the evening and the morning were the second day.
Then he (Jacob) dreamed, and behold, a ladder was set up on the earth, and its top reached to heaven; and there the angels of God were ascending and descending on it.
For He looked down from the height of His sanctuary; from heaven the Lord viewed the earth...of old You laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of Your hands. They will perish, but You will endure; yes, they will all grow old like a garment; like a cloak You will change them, and they will be changed.
You...who cover Yourself with light as with a garment, who stretch out the heavens like a curtain. He lays the beams of His upper chambers in the waters, who makes the clouds His chariot, who walks on the wings of the wind, ...You who laid the foundations of the earth...You covered it with the deep as with a garment; the waters stood above the mountains. At Your rebuke they fled; at the voice of Your thunder they hastened away. They went up over the mountains; they went down into the valleys, to the place which You founded for them. You have set a boundary that they may not return to cover the earth...He waters the hills from His upper chambers...
Isaiah 40.21—22, 25—26
Have you not known? Have you not heard? Has it not been told you from the beginning? Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth? It is He who sits above the circle of the earth, and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers, who stretches out the heavens like a curtain, and spreads them out like a tent to dwell in. “To whom then will you liken Me, or to whom shall I be equal?” says the Holy One. Lift up your eyes on high, and see who has created these things...
when is he going to come in the first place should be the question. don't worry , there will be no 2nd coming or anything like that. we might one day have the technology to broadcast to everyone at once but that's technology. believing in the 2nd coming is like believing in heaven and hell. extreme propoganda.
We muslims believe that The Messiah was raised to heaven and is there, and will descend at the appointed time, his reappearance is due close to the Day of Judgement and that he would return to the world end all wars, and bring peace to the world. He will stay on earth for a period of 40 years after descending.
I believe that heaven is within, rather than in the sky.
Secondly, it helps me to distinguish between "Jesus," the person or personality, and "the Christ," which is a consciousness. Consciousness is a 50-cent word for "awareness."
So we can pose the question another way: When will the second coming of our awareness take place? Whenever we choose it.
if we look for a body of Jesus in the sky we are looking in the wrong place. It's better to look within for the awareness. It was there all along.
Revelation 19:11-16 "And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called faithful and true, and with justice doth he judge and fight.  And his eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many diadems, and he had a name written, which no man knoweth but himself.  And he was clothed with a garment sprinkled with blood; and his name is called, THE WORD OF GOD.  And the armies that are in heaven followed him on white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.  And out of his mouth proceedeth a sharp two edged sword; that with it he may strike the nations. And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness of the wrath of God the Almighty.  And he hath on his garment, and on his thigh written: KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS."

We are often told that we will meet our dead friends and family in Heaven and we'll all be happy. Will we also meet our old enemies in Heaven as well, or do they go somewhere else like into their own Heaven with their own family and friends? Do people have their own personal heavens where only...

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth........?This first scripture confuses me a bit. We are told that God lives in Heaven, and that he has always existed. No beginning, no end. So, where did he reside before he created the heavens?

Do you believe non-religious people, who lead a good life, are still going to hell?One of my biggest frustrations with religion is the idea that, how you live your life is of no consequence if you do not accept god. For example, John Smith is a good christian man who helps people, obeys the law and...

Since I´m not very familiar with the folklore, and there seem to be quite a few ¨experts¨ here, I thought I´d ask.According to the storyline, Lucifer was the ¨highest of the high¨ or something to that effect. So, I guess that at some point, Lucifer must have had a higher ranking than Jesus....

For the very many years I was in Church attendance, the Kingdom of God was always equated with Heaven. It was a future event that only those who believed in Jesus would see either when they died or were raptured, whilst the remainder of humanity would go to hell. A Christian could be disqualified...
