Jesus came as the long-awaited Messiah. But because Jesus was crucified at a young age, a second coming became necessary. It is realized when a person born here on earth completes the messianic mission that Jesus had begun. However, the messianic task is enormous. Everything that has gone wrong during tens of thousands of years, and is still going wrong today, must be put right. The Messiah, the Savior, has a global or cosmic mission. Those who help him complete this task, by taking responsibility for their own tribe, may become a tribal messiah.
