God Knows…When I Wonder About the Future – Part 2
The next time Jesus comes to Earth he will not arrive as a baby, but as a King. Jesus described His second coming, “They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other” (Matthew 24:30-31).
 
Jesus wanted His disciples to remember that He would come again. He also wanted them to remember HOW He would come. When He returned to heaven, angels told his disciples, “This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven” (Acts 1:11).
 
Several years later when a follower of Jesus named Paul wrote a letter to some of his friends who lived in the city of Thessalonica, he reminded them of Jesus’ words: “For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord” (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17).
 
An Example
Jesus helped the disciples see more of the picture by saying, “As the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.”
 
The people before the Flood wanted a good time. They didn’t want anyone to remind them about God. Many people today are looking for what they call a good time. They, too, would rather not be reminded of Jesus. They don’t realize that real, true happiness comes from friendship with Him.
 
The disciple Peter warned us that in the last days there would be scoffers, saying, “Where is the promise of His coming?...All things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation” (2 Peter 3:4). But the good news is that “the Lord is not slack concerning His promise” (2 Peter 3:9). This old world is not going to go on forever down the path it is headed—running out of resources, destroying environment, cowering in fear of war and crime, risking health hazards, quieting conscience. God has a better plan. It will be heavenly!

Exciting, inspirational and educational stories bring the Scriptures, history and everyday experiences to life.

About Aunt Carole and Uncle Dan

Hosts Aunt Carole and Uncle Dan bring their warmth and love to children around the world as they narrate exciting, dramatized stories straight from the pages of the Bible, the annals of history and the experiences of life. Your Story Hour has encouraged young people (kids, teens and the young at heart) for nearly six decades, helping them to embrace high moral principles, while at the same time enjoying storytelling at its best. Kids love to "be there" when David slays the giant, "feel the heat" as Daniel's three friends are cast into the fiery furnace, "experience the excitement" as Clara Barton risks her life to save the wounded of the Civil War, "understand the risks" as Paul Revere makes his famous ride, "feel the wonder" as an angel protects two children from a robber or God miraculously spares an honest man's family from starvation. Hundreds of wonderful stories, taken from the international radio broadcast, are available on CD (or cassette). In addition, a special, interfaith Bible course, during which children earn CDs from Your Story Hour's Life of Jesus album (26 stories), is available for kids 9 years old and older. And, starting in 2008, Clubhouse magazine will be available online free of charge!
