Jesus said his followers should be ready because one day he is coming back in the same way he left—in the clouds. With a loud command, the voice of an archangel, and the trumpet of God, Jesus will come in glory and power. All believers will be gathered to him for all eternity. This is part of God’s plan for the Consummation, the seventh C of history.
