Is Jesus really coming back?

Paul calls Jesus’ second coming the ‘blessed hope‘ in Titus 2 v 13.  The word hope here refers to a confident expectation of something future;  you hope in something because you know for certain that one day it will be a part of your experience.  Other Bible writers encouraged Christians to live in light of the return of Jesus (such as James 5 vv 7-8;  1 Peter 1 v 13;  2 v 12; 4 v 7, 13;  5 vv 1-4).  The new Testament mentions the second coming more than three hundred times.  The crucial point here is that the second coming is a certainty that should have a profound impact on how we live daily.
