Are YOU aware that Jesus Christ's "return" / second "coming" has already happened?

To "return" does not always mean that one goes to a literal place. Thus sick persons are said to ‘return to health.’ And a former ruler may be said to ‘return to power.’ In a similar way, God told Abraham at Genesis 18:14; 21:1: “I shall return to you, next year at this time, and Sarah will have a son” (Genesis 18:14 {American Standard Version} http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?sea... / Genesis 21:1 {American Standard Version} http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?sea... ).

Jehovah’s "return" meant, NOT LITERALLY returning, but turning his attention to Sarah to do what he had promised. IN THE SAME WAY, Christ’s "return" DOES NOT mean that he LITERALLY comes back to this earth. Rather, it means that he takes Kingdom power toward this earth and turns his attention to it. He does not need to leave his heavenly throne and actually come down to earth to do this. Bible evidence, chronology and worldwide events shows that in the year 1914 C.E, God’s time arrived for Christ to "return" and begin ruling.

It was then that the cry was heard in heaven recorded at Revelation 12:10:

“NOW have come to pass the salvation and the power and THE KINGDOM of our God and THE AUTHORITY of his Christ”.

Since Christ’s return is invisible, is there a way to confirm that it has really occurred? Yes, there is. Christ himself gave a VISABLE COMPOSITE “sign” by which we may know that he is invisibly present and the end of this present world (global system of things) is near.

Are YOU aware that Jesus Christ's "return" / second "coming" (Parousia) has ALREADY happened?

This question is DEAD SERIOUS and the majority of the people have absolutely no clue... just as Jesus himself said would be the case during the time of his Parousia (presence).

I'm TOTALLY enjoying this and find the negative answers that the majority here are giving to actually be VERY faith strengthening to me!
Update 2: Shortly before Jesus’ death, while he was sitting on the Mount of Olives, four of his apostles came to ask him for a “sign”. This is the way their question has been read, in the King James Version Bible, by millions of people: “Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming,... show more Shortly before Jesus’ death, while he was sitting on the Mount of Olives, four of his apostles came to ask him for a “sign”.

This is the way their question has been read, in the King James Version Bible, by millions of people:

“Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and the end of the world?”
~Matthew 24:3
(KJV)

But what do these expressions, “thy coming” and “the end of the world,” really mean?

The Greek word here translated “coming” is PAROUSIA, and it means “PRESENCE”.

So, then, when the “sign” is seen, this means we would know that Christ is PRESENT though unseen, that he has ALREADY "come" (returned) in heavenly royal Kingdom power.

The expression “end of the world” is also very misleading. It DOES NOT mean the end of the earth, but, rather, the end of Satan’s system of things (2 Corinthians 4:4).
Update 3: The apostles’ question therefore ACCURATELY reads as follows: “Tell us, When will these things be, and what will be the sign of your PRESENCE and of THE CONCLUSION OF THE SYSTEM OF THINGS?” —Matthew 24:3 (New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures) Jesus DID NOT give just ONE event as “the sign.” He told... show more The apostles’ question therefore ACCURATELY reads as follows:

(New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures)

Jesus DID NOT give just ONE event as “the sign.” He told of MANY happenings and situations. Other Bible writers besides Matthew mentioned ADDITIONAL EVENTS that would mark the “last days” of this world (system of things).

All these things that were foretold would take place during the time that Bible writers called the “last days” (2 Timothy 3:1-5; 2 Peter 3:3, 4). These happenings would be like the different lines that make up a person’s fingerprint, a print that cannot belong to any other person. The “last days” contain their own pattern of marks, or happenings. These form a positive “fingerprint” that CANNOT belong to ANY OTHER time period.

This "world" entered it's LAST DAYS in 1914, we are DEEP in the time of the end.
