    As Christians, how can we explain (in such a way that is not offensive and instead would encourage and inspire everyone to believe in God) our blessed hope that one day, Jesus will come back for all of us. Please share your thoughts. Thank you and God bless!

    I believe their is no how can you explain,but the Spirit of God gives spiritual gifts,wisdom,knowledge,tongues,miracles etc these bear the witness of Jesus Christ,e.g the jews greeks require wisdom for them to believe therefore the gift of God gives gift of wisdom,the jews require signs therefore the gift of God gives signs and wonders,you require wisdom to know how,therefore follow after the way of love and desire spiritual gifts and shall be given unto you,that the Holy Ghost may be glorified in,and Christ gloried by the Holy Ghost and the Father by Christ,read also the scriptures which is able to make you wise,God be with your mouth,amen

    Do not continue to focus on the signs of the coming of the Lord or the end of time, but for now as the door of salvation grace of the Savior which is Christ, is still open for those who disbelieve then we as a ambasador of God and be of working diligently to proclaim the news of salvation Jesus ,,,

    I maybe late to this topic however I do not think we should speak about something like that to unbelievers. Even within christindom there are strong divides with this topic. However I will continue with the sentiments of Sis NITA918 and Bro BENSY261 that you should just tell them about Christ work on calvary.

    I think all of you need to talk with God and find out about "GOD" other than read a book that was writter 1300AD

    The second coming was first prophecy by the prophet Daniel; I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.... For me, the bible cannot tell a lair. A couple of months ago, I was preaching to a catholic, who believe when you die you go to heaven. I explained to her about the second coming of Jesus Christ, and show her a few scriptures. I think, if people cannot accept His works in His first coming. They're going to refuse his second coming.

    You shall offend many for the Lord's sake(Matt 24:9-10, Luke 21:12-19, John 15:18-21, Luke 6:22), so Preach the Word and if men of the World hate you for it Rejoice.

    There's probably little point to explaining that "Jesus will return" to people who don't even believe God actually exists. There's likely little point to explaining the "good news" of salvation without first explaining the bad news of sinful human nature in contrast to God's holiness and fairness (which requires judgement).

    In short, you need to start by explaining the reasons for accepting that God exists before going further in your conversation. You can then go into Jesus' claim to being God in the flesh, the resurrection, and so on. You need to start at the beginning. Saying "Jesus loves you", while true, is a very poor excuse of an apologetic and not an argument for your critic to evaluate because there's no reasoning behind it. Peter said that we are supposed to give a reasoned defense (i.e. apologetic) of the faith, not just unsubstantiated assertions.

    My thought is that, in most (not all) cases, if you're trying to persuade a non-Christian by starting from the good news of the N.T., you're probably (not necessarily) going about it the wrong way. How much success would you expect to have by trying to explain to someone that they need the cure you're offering, when they don't even know they're sick?

    Paul learned from his mistake the hard way when preaching to the Greeks. He realized that he had to start at the very beginning with Genesis; he had to explain everything starting out with creation, the fall, and judgement, all of which lay the groundwork for people to see that they're hopelessly lost. It is then, at this point, that it makes sense to explain the good news. People need context to understand why they're even called "good news" in the first place.

    I believe that in the first place you should start from somewhere,talk to them about the love of christ John 3:16,1John 4:8,and let them know the goodness and the love of christ for them,then explain to them the need for salvation,its benefits and adverntage of accepting christ as lord and saviour.What it meant when he died on the cross of Calvary his stripes,the piercing on his ribs,the crown of thorns etc then the dead and resurrection ,the sending of the holyspirit as a helper to us believers and his ascension to the father in Acts 1:9_12,then they will understand.But they have to start somewhere!
