Footnotes:

1. Hebrews 9:28 is the only passage that speaks of His return as a “second” coming. John 14:3 says He will come “again,” which implies a second coming.
2. Jesus is in heaven at the right hand of God (Acts 7:56; Heb. 1:3; 1 Pet. 3:22).
3. The scriptures do not teach that Jesus will live on earth when He returns. The earth will be destroyed at His coming (2 Pet. 3:10), and the kingdom will be delivered up to the Father (1 Cor. 15:24).
4. The Lord’s return will not only be visible, it will also be audible. His coming will be very loud (1 Cor. 15:52; 1 Thess. 4:16).
5. The Lord’s return is likened to the coming of a thief, meaning unannounced or without warning. The Lord does not even know when He will return (Mk. 13:32).
6. The good and evil will be resurrected at the same time (Jn. 5:28-29; Acts 24:15).
