It’s very simple: Christ has come and Christ is coming again (Revelation 22:20). The time of His return is unknown (Matthew 24:36), but Jesus will physically come to judge the whole world separating the sheep (believers in Christ), and the goats (unbelievers)(Matthew 25:31-46) to make all things new (Revelation 21:1). There are many different views of the end times, yet we believe, teach, and confess in the plain words of Christ as confessed in the creeds (“I look for the resurrection of the dead”). Christ is coming soon and will make all things new, encourage one another with these words (I Thessalonians 4:18). “Christ is surely coming, Bringing His reward, Alpha and Omega, First and Last and Lord: Root and Stem of David, Brilliant Morning Star; Meet your Judge and Savior, Nations near and far!” LSB #509, st 1
