THE RETURN OF JESUS
Jesse M. Hendley
I want to speak to you on "The Return of Jesus." In
Revelation, chapter 1, verse 7, we read, "BEHOLD HE
COMETH WITH CLOUDS; AND EVERY EYE SHALL SEE HIM, AND
THEY ALSO WHICH PIERCED HIM: AND ALL THE TRIBES OF THE
EARTH SHALL MOURN BECAUSE OF HIM." And John says,
"EVEN SO, AMEN."
Also at the close of the Bible in Revelation 22:20
Jesus says, "BEHOLD, I COME QUICKLY." And John answer-

until Jesus comes back again. He is the only Hope for
a better world, a world of peace and harmony.

city. The devil has not been bruised, and this
utterance of God, the first great prophecy of the
Bible, demands the RETURN of Christ for its
fulfillment. He is coming again, and one of the first
things He will do is bind the devil, cast him into
the bottomless pit, after a thousand years release
him, then destroy him in the lake of fire. Jesus will
take care of the devil.
2. ANGELS certify it. Angels say Christ is coming
again. One day God sent the Angel Gabriel from His
Presence down to a virgin girl in Nazareth. Gabriel
went to Mary and said, "Thou shalt ...
