Jesus Returns to the Woodlands!

Adams says "Among them was the question of when Jesus would return. Ladd emphasized the fact that scripture doesn't say exactly when that will take place. But he reminded us that one thing is clear about the timing of Jesus' return: it won't happen until the Gospel is spread to all four corners of the earth." But didn't Jesus predict it would happen within a generation? See Mark 9:1, Matthew 16:28 & 24:34 and Luke 9:27 (e.g., "There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom").

What a silly post. Is that all you've got?

For example: Mark 9:1 -- "And he said to them, “Truly I tell you, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see that the kingdom of God has come with power.”

For Christians, the kingdom of God came first on Pentecost, a little over 50 days after his resurrection. It continues to come to Christians each day.

Try again.

The Pentecost is when disciples and other followers of Jesus Christ were gathered together to pray. It is said that the Holy Spirit descended upon them in the form of "cloven tongues of fire," with the sound of a mighty rushing wind, and they began to speak in languages that they did not know. This report is indeed very strange, but what it doesn't begin to resemble is the coming with power of the Kingdom of God. The very early Christians anticipated with great fervor the imminent appearance of the Kingdom of God, the arrival of the Son of Man in power, and angels taking the elect – the true believers – up into Heaven. It was a major focus of their belief. It never materialized.

He was talking about His Resurrection nitwit.

Christ won over death (power).

So you used your immense intelligence to ascertain that the promised "Kingdom of God" was just about an immortal god staging a mock execution and pretending to die? Sort of like pro wrestling.

Study the Hebrew behind the Greek "The kingdom of the heavens is near (or at hand)."

We are living now in the end times.
