Would Jesus return to Earth in the next 100 years?

After reading renowned physicist Stephen Hawking’s warning that humanity needs to become a multi-planetary species within the next century in order to avoid extinction, today’s topic was the question that came to my mind. Existential risks according to Stephen include climate change, overpopulation, epidemics and asteroids. Now back to my question? Would Jesus return to Earth in the next 100 years? This question was posed to Americans not too long ago. While 41 percent said Jesus Christ will return by 2050, 46 percent however said this will definitely or probably not happen. Would rapture happen on or before 2100? The truth is no one knows. Edgar C. Whisenant thought he knew when, but he was wrong.  Edgar argued that the rapture of the Christian church would occur between September 11 – 13 1988. After his September 1988 prediction failed to materialize, he changed his termination date to 1989. Jesus said “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” Jesus may come back tomorrow, next month, next year or 100 years from now. And He may not come even 1000 years from now. One thing we are sure of however is that our God is sovereign and working out His plan for me, you and the world.
