VIII. MAIN BODY:

A. Signs have been given/shown

"In the same way, when you see all these things taking place"

1. See is the same Greek word:"eido" used in the word knowledge, or know, understand, perceive.

We understand and perceive that CHRIST's Second Coming is Perfect and Guaranteed to happen in the near future. It can't be delayed or stopped. It's backed by optional signs, wonders and miracles but it need not be. His First Coming is when He was born of a virgin and spake about these things, referring to another coming, where commonly termed as Second Coming.

2. Accept GOD's Gift of Eternal Life by faith thru grace and enter the Door thru the Door (the LORD JESUS CHRIST)

Matthew 24:33 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

In the same way, when you see all these things, you can know his return is very near, right at the door.

John 10:1-2 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

“I tell you the truth, anyone who sneaks over the wall of a sheepfold, rather than going through the gate, must surely be a thief and a robber!

But the one who enters through the gate is the shepherd of the sheep.

John 10:7 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

so he explained it to them: “I tell you the truth, I am the gate for the sheep... even the gate before going to the door

John 10:9 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

Yes, I am the gate. Those who come in through me will be saved. They will come and go freely and will find good pastures.

B. His return is very near

"you can know that his return is very near"

1. Near or nigh came from the Greek word:"eggus" meaning to squeeze or throttle, at hand, ready, near literally or figuratively.

our LORD JESUS CHRIST is literally "squeeze" or pressed out of time to return and His return is very near.

2. Compared His return to a fig tree - it cannot delay, it's sure to come, the guarantee of returning is not an issue, but the "how long" is, but it's like fig tree bearing fruit.
