26 “So if anyone tells you, ‘There he is, out in the desert,’ do not go out; or, ‘Here he is, in the inner rooms,’ do not believe it. 27 For as lightning that comes from the east is visible even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.
Just a few weeks ago, I had someone who tried to comment at my blog claiming that the Messiah had already returned and was in Florida or something. I sent him a polite message quoting this verse explaining that he couldn’t possibly be right. Jesus was very plain. He said that when He shows up again, as He promised to do, no one would miss it. When Christ returns, everyone will see it and know it is Him. He isn’t going to play hide and seek.
