What is the purpose of Christ’s return?
Before Jesus Christ ascended to heaven in 33 C.E.,
he promised to return. He likened himself to a nobleman who went away for a long time and returned with
power to rule as king. The purpose of Jesus’ return is to
provide mankind with good government.—Read Luke
19:11, 12.
In what form does Christ return? He was resurrected as
an invisible spirit person. (1 Peter 3:18) Then, he went
to heaven and sat at God’s right hand. (Psalm 110:1)
Much later, Jesus was brought before Jehovah God,
“the Ancient of Days,” who granted Jesus power to rule
over mankind. So Jesus returns, not as a human, but as
an invisible King.—Read Daniel 7:13, 14. (Lu 19:11,
12)
(Lu 19:11, 12) While they were listening to these
things he spoke in addition an illustration, because he
was near Jerusalem and they were imagining that the
kingdom of God was going to display itself instantly.

Therefore he said: “A certain man of noble birth
traveled to a distant land to secure kingly power for
himself and to return.
