Revelation 19:1 - 21
ESV - 1 After this I heard what seemed to be the loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, crying out, "Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God. 2 For his judgments are true and just; for he has judged the great prostitute who corrupted the earth with her immorality, and has avenged on her the blood of his servants.

Christ will come back ASAP! Why do I say this? 2 Peter 3:1-13. Peter through the Holy Spirit addressed the question by associating it to judgement as the Day of the Lord when Jesus will come back.He goes on to say our time frame as humans is not the same as God's perspective in vs. 8. He then explains that God wants as many to be saved and not perish as Possible. So soon to us in our minds is counted in days, months, and years but God sees Eternity and the end from the beginning.Isaiah 46:10. Jesus will return to earth as taught in Scripture by Paul and Peter and John and Jesus Himself, as well as O.T. prophets, and I could give many verses that state this clearly but the question is it soon. I say yes it is Soon as Soon as Possible in God's time frame.
Dan. 8:11, Mat. 24:15-16, Mark13:14, Luke 21:20-21, all inform us that the final desolation of all the desolations is the destruction of the Temple, because without the temple the Jewish daily sacrifice was taken away. Then the saint in Dan. 8:12 asked how long shall this be, and was told 2300 evenings and mornings. One evening, one morning makes up a day. Therefore as 2300 literal days makes up 2300 years, which marks the end of the great Tribulation, after which the sanctuary shall be cleansed (The sanctuary is the Church/Christians while Christ himself is the host). As Christ died for 3 days, so does his church for 3 days, as we can see in Luke 13:32: “And he said unto them, ‘Go ye, and tell that fox, “Behold, I cast out devils, and I do cures today and tomorrow, and the third day I shall be perfected.”’” Hos. 6:2: After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight. The daily sacrifice of the Jews was finally taken away in the year 70 AD by the Romans as a flame that was lit by Caius, Herod Agrippa, and was passed on unto the hand that finally made desolate the Temple and the City of the Jews, because of the rebellion of the Jews against them for honoring their God over them as gods. For this is the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet in which Mathew required us to gain its understanding, because the fulfillment of the prophecy occurred in his own very generation. And Christ also said before his crucifixion that the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of his generation Therefore adding 2300 years to 70 AD of the year of the Temple fall, will bring us to the year 2370AD. But the bible calendar makes 360 days for one year just as a perfect circle is 360 degrees, contrary to our 365/366 days a year. Therefore to make up for these days, 2300 years times 5 extra days gives us 11500 days, and 2300 divided by 4 leap years gives us 575 days, making a total of 12075 extra days. When converted to biblical years, this gives us exactly 33years, 6 months and 15 days. (Could this be the number of days Christ actually lived in the flesh?). Therefore removing these extra days from 2370 AD brings us to half a month, half a year of the year 2336 AD, in which the 2300 days to be fulfilled. To conclude this matter, we should remember that Christ also gave a parable about the time of his second coming, when he said the parable about the thief, because the thief usually operates when his victims are asleep; Scientific Cross Checking: Among many signs Christ had given us to precede the very time of his second coming was the saying that immediately after the end of the 2300 years of the great tribulation which began in 70 AD, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven. Therefore as we have calculated the time of the great tribulation to come to its end in the year 2336 AD, let us watch out for scientific predictions for a solar and lunar eclipse within that year and, bingo! On moonblink.info a total lunar eclipse is expected to occur on 25 Jun, 2336 AD, (https://moonblink.info/Eclipse/eclipse/2336_06_25) while a total solar eclipse is expected to occur on 9 Jul, 2336 AD (https://moonblink.info/Eclipse/eclipse/2336_07_09).
