Basing our belief in the Bible, we must know that what we believe is correct. The return of Jesus Christ serves as a case in point for us to consider. Up to this period some incorrect assumptions have led to unfulfilled expectations. Three areas are explored to answer how we have the beliefs we now hold: by deception and disobedience; by revelation from God; and, by obedience to God. The Bible plainly shows that the return of Jesus Christ is a foremost theme of God’s prophetic revelation. Christians must not become disheartened, because we have been warned that many both have and will stumble over the timing of Christ’s return. Our instruction is to remain faithful to the end.
