    thing is the Jews lost out because they refuse to acknowledge that Jesus is the Christ.

    I don't look up into the sky too much I would miss it If it were loud enough to cause me to go out and look I would think it was a rocket ship messed up or something of the like, I don't think I would even know where to look to see it much less know what I was looking at.To me it is something I might not even interpret as the second coming of CHrist.

    I would have to see Christ for myself, but sense he's only a human being, the literal sight of him would not happen, he would be too small to see

    Considering he'd be falling out of the sky, how do you think he's gonna survive the fall from the sky anyways? IF He's flying down that makes him magic and not a man so, therefore it makes him not who the bible says he is. If he is human like the bible says, he'd be falling out of the sky and the fall will kill him.

    As regards him coming from the heavens: I believe this will be a spectacular event that everyone would recognise as a miracle and that nobody will miss. Personally, I imagine clouds parting, rays of sunshine, angels, all that sort of thing

    Who is everyone, when we look up into the sky in Texas, we do not see the same sky that Oklahoma does, or even the next city over who may have hale falling from the sky when we have a clear blue sky. The skies are different all over the world Which part of the sky in what part of the world will be able to see him?


    We may not be able to see him in the sky. There is no such thing as the world looking up being able to see him.

    When the bible was written, they were in Jeruslem and or Greece or around the same area, they must have been talking to that one part of the world. There's no scientific way for all people to look up into the skies and see the same thing, no such thing .

    But then again the bible also says that Jesus said that generation would not fade away before he came back so, he must have been speaking to that crowd, that generation.

    I haven't lost out. I've maintained my covenant with God. Jesus is not the messiah. He was a wannabe who failed.

    You assume we went into exile for rejecting Jesus. Hardly. The timeline would be off if nothing else.

    No, we went into exile because we hated one another. Terribly. For no reason.

    Some day, when we have learned to love with no reason, the Messiah will come.

    Jesus is not going to come anytime soon. The reason is because humanity has not evolved enough yet.

    Would the event be covered by the media? Yes, but not like the media now. Everyone will already know that Jesus and God exist and they will know everything about how the universe really works so there won't be any annoying media questions.

    Would anything drastic happen economically? No. The economy will be very stable at that point.

    What will the world leaders say? There won't be any world leaders.

    What would happen on the internet? Celebration that humanity finally made it.

    Would there be civil disturbances of some kind? No.

    Would there be mass celebrations? Yes, but not like how humans do it today. They will be very reserved.

    What would the atheists do? There won't be any atheists.

    How would other religions react? There won't be any other religions.

    Would it all of a sudden make the world a better place? No. The world will already be a better place.

    Privallege means your generally unhappy, so my guess is Jesus doesnt practice this. And its ironic.

    I don't believe God centers on the physical and doesn't major in minors as though it is a big sin to picture Him as human. He didn't seem to mind being seen as human in Jesus and doesn't mind being seen as human in us. Red and yellow black and white He is Jesus in our sight.

    I am pretty sure when Jesus comes to earth He will do it in secret and only those who know Him will go to Him.
