I don't know why would he bother. He already died for our sins supposedly and that was a total waste, it didn't make people any nicer. Supposedly he will return at the end of the world, but if you think about it, nobody would care then. Every single mass murderer could come back and no one would care either way - because it is the end of the world! When the bible was written, people believed that the world would end in their lifetime or soon after. 200+ generations later and it still hasn't happened. Thus there is a 1/200 chance that it won't happen in your lifetime either. Maybe he will come back in another 200 generations. In that case, you will be remembered in the same way as the other 500 billion people who lived and died since the beginning of time - not! It is amazing what happens when you actually think instead of repeating what you have been told like a parrot.
Zechariah 14:4 says that Jesus' feet will "stand on the Mount of Olives." When Jesus returns, He will fulfill prophecy, destroy His enemies (Zechariah 12:1-9; Revelation 19:15-16), gather and bless His people (Isaiah 11:11; Zechariah 12:10), and reign as King (Isaiah 11). We cannot know when Jesus' second coming will occur (Matthew 24:36; 2 Thessalonians 2:1-2), although we can look for signs-events that must occur beforehand (Matthew 24:4-29; 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12; Revelation 6?18). Like the other prophecies about the end times, the promise of Jesus' return is to give us encouragement (Titus 2:13) and to exhort us to continue to trust and obey Him (Matthew 25:19-21).

JOHN 14:........ 2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
Yep! If i go to prepare a place for you, i will come again and recieve you unto myself(thessalonians). He also left a reaffirming sign for the deciples. In Mark/ it reads that they found His head napkin FOLDED! That is a Jewish custom when at the eating table: a folded napkin meant He would be returning ! If it were tossed aside, meant he was not!
Yes, he did. He is coming back in more glory than ever before, and all those who continue to deny him will fall down into the earth and be punished for their sins. He will gather with all those who love him and teach them the fullness of the gospel, and reveal the three disciples who he granted the gift of immortality, and the lost people with come forth with their own records of Jesus from 'the ice and the mountains'. And all those who pay their tithing will be given all the praise they deserve and all of the little children of the Earth will take turns sitting on his lap and he will tell them how much he loves them. All will rejoice in his name, even those who sin, and he will love us all. Everyone who refuses to believe him even when seeing him right before them will be sent away, and all the righteous will inhabit the Earth forever with him.
First it is doubtful whether such a figure ever existed. Second, he either is a lied or the bible is false as his final words are: "Surely, I come quickly." (Revelation 22:20) And who represents this liar? Satan(although it/he doesn't exist either) "I am the root and offspring of David, and the bright and morning star." (Revelation 22:16) bright and morning star: Lucifer -- Satan. In Isaiah 14:12, St. Jerome, translated the Hebrew "morning star" into the Latin term "Lucifer" (light bearer), a name commonly ascribed to Satan by Christians, and represents the fallen star, an ancient symbol for the fallen or evil one. The mourning star actually appears as the planet Venus, the brightest "star" in the sky (but the ancients did not know about planets). Venus always appears low on the horizon, thus it looked like a fallen star (fallen angel) to the believers.
