Jesus Christ came down on earth over 2000 years ago to save mankind. After creation, sin entered the world through Adam and Eve, and that separated man and God. So God sent down his son as a sacrificial lamb to cleanse our sins and save us from eternal damnation.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting lifeJohn 3:16
The Bible also tells us that Jesus Christ will come back to the world, but this time around, He wouldn’t be coming to die again, but He is coming to judge both the living and the dead. What this means is that whatever we do on earth, we will be judged one day. So you have to try as much as possible to live a life that is right and true in the Lord.
The amazing thing is it doesn’t matter what you have done in the past, you can start from today to live a life that is right and true in Christ. All you have to do is repent from your sins and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and savior.
The Bible says that it is only through Jesus Christ that we can get to the Father. (John 14:6)
Here are some bible verses on the second coming of Jesus Christ, to help you know and understand what the second coming is going to be like and how the judgment day is going to unfold.
Bible verses about the second coming of Jesus Christ
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord.
Behold, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him, even those who pierced him, and all tribes of the earth will wail on account of him. Even so. Amen.
Because he has fixed a day on which he will judge the world in righteousness by a man whom he has appointed; and of this he has given assurance to all by raising him from the dead.”

And while they were gazing into heaven as he went, behold, two men stood by them in white robes, and said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into heaven? This Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will come in the same way as you saw him go into heaven.”
“Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you?

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep. For this we declare to you by a word from the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord. Therefore encourage one another with these words.
When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.

1 John 3:2-3

As he sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?” And Jesus answered them, “See that no one leads you astray. For many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and they will lead many astray. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are but the beginning of the birth pains.
2 Peter 3:8-9
But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.
1 Thessalonians 5:2
For you yourselves are fully aware that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night.
For as were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and they were unaware until the flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.

For it will come upon all who dwell on the face of the whole earth. But stay awake at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are going to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man.”
Waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ,
So that you are not lacking in any gift, as you wait for the revealing of our Lord Jesus Christ,
But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only.
Therefore, stay awake, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming. But know this, that if the master of the house had known in what part of the night the thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and would not have let his house be broken into. Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.
But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ,
1 Peter 1:13
Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
For certain people have crept in unnoticed who long ago were designated for this condemnation, ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into sensuality and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ. Now I want to remind you, although you once fully knew it, that Jesus, who saved a people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed those who did not believe. And the angels who did not stay within their own position of authority, but left their proper dwelling, he has kept in eternal chains under gloomy darkness until the judgment of the great day just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise indulged in sexual immorality and pursued unnatural desire, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire. Yet in like manner these people also, relying on their dreams, defile the flesh, reject authority, and blaspheme the glorious ones.
1 Corinthians 11:26
For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.
1 Peter 5:4
And when the chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the unfading crown of glory.
1 Corinthians 4:5
Therefore do not pronounce judgment before the time, before the Lord comes, who will bring to light the things now hidden in darkness and will disclose the purposes of the heart. Then each one will receive his commendation from God.
For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him will the Son of Man also be ashamed when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.”
2 Timothy 4:8
Henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award to me on that day, and not only to me but also to all who have loved his appearing.
Prayer for repentance
I commit my life into your hands
Have mercy on my penitent soul and help me turn away from sin
I lay before you all my sins and wrongdoings
Purify me and cleanse my heart and my mind
I confess that Jesus Christ is your son
And he came to die so that a sinner like me may be forgiven
I declare Jesus Christ as my Lord and personal savior
And I promise to devote my life to Him
Please grant me the grace to live a godly and righteous life
And fill me with your Holy Spirit to draw me closer to you
Equip me to faithfully serve you all my life
Through Jesus Christ, I pray,
