Is there any Bible prophecy that proves the Lord Jesus will return to flesh in the last days?

Is there any Bible prophecy that proves the Lord Jesus will return to flesh in the last days?

Almighty God, God's work, Gospel, heaven, Jesus., Jesus,
The Lord Jesus will return in the flesh to do the work. This is prophesied in the Bible and there are many verses that talk of this. Such as, "Be you therefore ready also: for the Son of man comes at an hour when you think not." (Luke 12:40) "For as the lightning, that lightens out of the one part under heaven, shines to the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day. But first must he suffer many things, and be rejected of this generation." Many have mentioned that "the Son of man comes," or "the Son of man descends." When we talk about the Son of man, it refers to a person born to a human and with normal humanity. So the Spirit then can't be called the Son of man. Jehovah God is the Spirit. We can't call Him the Son of man. The angels people saw, they're spirit entities. They can't be called the Son of man. Any spiritual being that looks like a human also isn't the Son of man. Lord Jesus incarnate was called the Son of man, Christ, because He was the incarnate flesh of God's Spirit, becoming an ordinary man who just lived among us. So then when the Lord Jesus said "the Son of man comes," "the Son of man descends," He meant in the last days He would become flesh again. Especially the words "But first must he suffer many things, and be rejected of this generation" better prove that the Lord would come through incarnation. Besides, unless God is incarnated on earth, He won’t “suffer many things” or “be rejected of this generation.” If He comes as the “Spirit,” He won’t suffer and no one would dare reject Him. And thus, when God comes again in the last days, He will still appear to us as the “Son of man,” that is, appear in the flesh. This refers to the Lord Jesus. Because the Lord will return in the glorified flesh and He won’t suffer. Let’s read another verse. Luke 9:22. “The Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be slain, and be raised the third day.” This verse tells us clearly when the Lord Jesus was first incarnated, He was rejected by chief priests, elders, and scribes and suffered quite a lot, and then was crucified. But Luke 17:24-25 tell us when the Lord Jesus comes again, He will suffer many things and again be rejected of this generation. It mentions “and again be rejected of this generation.” “Again” means that He was once rejected, and it will happen again. It shows that the Lord will come back in the flesh. If the Lord Jesus comes in the glorified flesh, He will not “suffer many things” or “again be rejected of this generation.

Any major incidents of God's work are prophesied in the Bible, and there are quite a few relating to the second coming of the Lord Jesus and God's work of judgment. But we should understand that prophecies only tell people what will happen. They are reminders for people to be aware and to seek and investigate in the last days, so they won't be abandoned or eliminated by God. That's all the prophecies can do. The prophecies can't help us to know God's work, nor understand the truth, or help people obey God, or increase people's love for God. So, our best course is to directly investigate the words expressed by Almighty God and the work done by Him, from these determine whether they are truly God's voice and expression. That is the most important course of action. This is much more realistic and useful. We all know that when the Lord Jesus came to do work, the disciples and believers who followed Him, they only recognized Him gradually, through His work and words, that the Lord was Christ, the Messiah prophesied. The priests, scribes, and Pharisees who knew religious law and studied the Bible knew that the Lord Jesus' word is the truth, has authority, and has power. But because they hated the truth, they not only refused to follow the Lord Jesus, they used the letters and regulations in the Bible to oppose and condemn the Lord Jesus, This shows us the Bible can't lead or guide us to accept the return of the Lord. For those who wait the Lord's return, the Bible only serves as corroboration. The clever virgin doesn't welcome her groom using the Bible. When she hears her groom's voice, she ascertains it is God's voice and goes to meet her Lord. Those who rely on biblical prophecy rather than seeking God's voice, and who reject and condemn Almighty God's work in the last days— they are the most foolish virgins, those who God will abandon and eliminate.
Let's read a passage from Almighty God. Almighty God says, “Can you be such that you accept without question all the work of the Holy Spirit? If it is the work of the Holy Spirit, then it is the right “stream.” You should accept it without the slightest misgivings, rather than picking and choosing what to accept. If you gain some knowledge from God and exercise some caution against Him, is this not an act truly uncalled for? What you ought to do is acceptance of, without the need for further substantiation from the Bible, any work so long as it is that of the Holy Spirit, for you believe in God to follow God, not to investigate Him. You should not search out further proof for Me to show that I am your God. Rather, you ought to discern whether I am of benefit to you; that is the key. Even if you have found out much irrefutable proof within the Bible, it cannot bring you fully before Me. You are one who lives within the confines of the Bible, and not before Me; the Bible cannot help you know Me, nor can it deepen your love for Me” (The Word Appears in the Flesh). To discern whether Almighty God is the returned Lord Jesus, we cannot rely solely on evidence in the Bible. Most important is whether the words expressed by Almighty God are the truth, whether what Almighty God expresses is God's disposition and what He has and is, whether Almighty God's words are the truth, the way, and the life necessary to man, whether they relieve people's confusion about belief in God, whether they save people from their corrupt satanic dispositions and satanic natures, and whether they can save people from Satan's influence, achieve purity and enter the kingdom of heaven. That's the most important factor.
