,, Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they [also] which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen."

                                                                                                              Rev. 1: 7

 

Here in this verse John gives us a brief insight into the events that follow and are described in Revelation. In the following chapters the events are described in detail and the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ will be in two parts. First he will come into the clouds and take the church and that can happen every moment and the second coming is to earth with the Church. The first part is also described as a secret because it was revealed to Paul, but not earlier, and the apostle Paul writes about it:

,, Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.“

                                                                                                            1 Cor.15: 51-52

And this event refers to the coming of Jesus to earth with the Church, and the believers of the Old Testament also had information about that, and it was no secret, and this event will be at the end of great troubles that will last for seven years.

"Behold, he cometh with clouds, and every eye shall see him." We have just mentioned that the believers of the Old Testament also knew about this because they had information from the prophet Malachi who wrote:

,, For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the Lord of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch”

                                                                                                           Mal.4: 1

and this is also confirmed by Judas in verse 14.

                          ,,,… Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints,”

                                                                                                          Jude 1:14

Here we can notice that Malachi and Judas used the words of warning "behold, it is coming" and for them this was the future and they practically warned the listeners to pay attention to this event and John says "here it goes" which is another proof that John saw these events in real time for him it is the present he sees it now and not as some future event.

This event is something that will happen in the future, and the Bible clearly describes it, but a large number of people doubt or do not believe that this will happen. And this is not strange, although they have a lot of evidence, the Bible predicted this in advance:

,, Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as [they were] from the beginning of the creation.”

                                                                                                        2 Peter.3: 3-4

Regardless of the fact that someone does not believe what the Bible warns in advance, this event will be real and many will not like it, but God does not change his plans and what he prophesied in Genesis will be fulfilled soon, as well as other prophecies recorded in the Old and New covenant.

,, The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him [shall] the gathering of the people [be].”

                                                                                                       Gen. 49:10

 

So from the tribe of Judah will come someone who is called "He" and that someone is the Lord Jesus Christ and will be the ruler and the nations will obey him and He will rule through eternity.

,, Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.”

                                                                                                       Ps.2: 8

"And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is toward Jerusalem from the east; and the mount of Olives shall fall in the midst of the east, and toward the west, and shall be very great; and half shall go up to the north, and half to the north." south. And ye shall flee into the high places of the mountains: for the length of the mountains shall reach unto Asala; and the Lord my God shall come, and all the saints shall be with thee. And in that day there will be no light and no darkness; There will be one day, which is known to the Lord, there will be no day and night, because there will be light in the evening as well.

   And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which [is] before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, [and there shall be] a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.

,,And ye shall flee [to] the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the Lord my God shall come, [and] all the saints with thee. And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] the light shall not be clear, [nor] dark: But it shall be one day which shall be known to the Lord, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, [that] at evening time it shall be light. And it shall be in that day, [that] living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be. And the Lord shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one Lord, and his name one. All the land shall be turned as a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem: and it shall be lifted up, and inhabited in her place, from Benjamin's gate unto the place of the first gate, unto the corner gate, and [from] the tower of Hananeel unto the king's winepresses. And [men] shall dwell in it, and there shall be no more utter destruction; but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited.” 

                                                                                                Zechariah 14: 4-11

,, Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if [it were] not [so], I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, [there] ye may be also.”

                                                                                                    John 14: 1-3

We have seen that Jesus is sure to come, but in this age of grace there is an intention or plan for non-Jews as well, and that plan is to build the Church of Jesus made up of saved people in the time after the cross, including our time.

,, Simeon hath declared how God at the first did visit the Gentiles, to take out of them a people for his name. And to this agree the words of the prophets; as it is written, After this I will return, and will build again the tabernacle of David, which is fallen down; and I will build again the ruins thereof, and I will set it up: That the residue of men might seek after the Lord, and all the Gentiles, upon whom my name is called, saith the Lord, who doeth all these things.”

                                                                                                   Acts 15: 14-17

 

The Church is the building of all nations in New Testament times, and first the Church should be built and then the kingdom comes.

,, And put no difference between us and them, purifying their hearts by faith. Now therefore why tempt ye God, to put a yoke upon the neck of the disciples, which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear? But we believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be saved, even as they.”

                                                                                                   Acts 15: 9-11

              ,, After this I will return, and will build again the tabernacle of David …”

                                                                                                   Acts 15:16

And when that happens, Jesus will reign over all nations, but before that, Armageddon will be the last great battle where many will die in the fight against God.

,, I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and [for] my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.”

                                                                                                   Joel 3: 2

,, Proclaim ye this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near; let them come up: Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I [am] strong.”

                                                                                                  Joel 3: 9-10

                            ,,... for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about.”

                                                                                                  Joel 3:12

And after a terrible battle

 ,, And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the Lord. As for me, this [is] my covenant with them, saith the Lord; My spirit that [is] upon thee, and my words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed's seed, saith the Lord, from henceforth and for ever.”

                                                                                                  Isa.59: 20-21

,, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth. In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this [is] his name whereby he shall be called,the Lord our righteousness”

                                                                                                  Jer.23: 5-6

This has not happened yet, but it will happen soon that the prophecies will be fulfilled, and when Jesus came for the first time, they did not accept him and did not believe him, even the high priest asked him:

,, But Jesus held his peace. And the high priest answered and said unto him, I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us whether thou be the Christ, the Son of God. Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven. Then the high priest rent his clothes, saying, He hath spoken blasphemy; what further need have we of witnesses? behold, now ye have heard his blasphemy.What think ye? They answered and said, He is guilty of death.”

                                                                                                Mt.26: 63-66

And then they concluded that he deserved death but they were deceived, they could not kill Him. He is alive and will return again in glory as it is written in the verses of the prophets and apostles.

"Behold, it goes with the clouds" is something that will be, and through the Bible the cloud is a symbol of God's glory and presence and the Jews knew that because the "cloud" led them through the desert

,, And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night:”

                                                                                               Exodus 13:21

 and he also filled the tent of meeting with the glory of God.

,, Then a cloud covered the tent of the congregation, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle.”

                                                                                              Exodus.40: 34

Danilo saw this "cloud"

.. 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.”

                                                                                                 Daniel 7:13

On the mountain the transfiguration could be seen

,, While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him."

                                                                                                 Mt.17: 5

and also at the ascension on the Mount of Olives

,, And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.”

                                                                                                Acts 1: 9

On the way back, it will be similar, "clouds" are mentioned, but these are not ordinary clouds that we can see every day in the sky, these are clouds of glory.

,, And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.”

                                                                                               Mt. 24:30

"and every eye shall see Him" ​​at that time the light of the Lord's glory will be even more pronounced because the sun and the moon will lose their light

,, And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;”

                                                                                               Rev. 6:12

 and then the glory of the Lord will shine so brightly that everyone will see and everyone will know what it is about so many unbelievers will try to hide in caves and holes to escape the Lord Jesus Christ

,, And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:”

                                                                                               Rev. 6:16

Throughout history God appeared in the "cloud" and the glory of the clouds is the light and glory of God and it is so strong light that it is blinding and man cannot look into it and see God in fullness and stay alive, it is God himself said Moses

        ,, And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live.”

                                                                                              Exodus 33:20

So no one can see God and stay alive, the only thing he can see is the ray of God's glory in the form of light, but practically he can't see it either, he can only be seen for a moment because neither Ezekiel nor Paul wrote "I saw" someone. "so they saw it briefly.

,, And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud, and a fire infolding itself, and a brightness [was] about it, and out of the midst thereof as the colour of amber, out of the midst of the fire.."

                                                                                              Ezekiel 1: 4

,, And, behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the east: and his voice [was] like a noise of many waters: and the earth shined with his glory.”

                                                                                             Ezekiel 43: 2

                                                                                            

Paul saw that light while Saul was still in the middle of the day and here is a description after which he fell to the ground and went blind

,, Came unto me, and stood, and said unto me, Brother Saul, receive thy sight. And the same hour I looked up upon him.”

                                                                                              Acts 22:13

,, At midday, O king, I saw in the way a light from heaven, above the brightness of the sun, shining round about me and them which journeyed with me.”

                                                                                             Acts 26:13

,, And when I could not see for the glory of that light, being led by the hand of them that were with me, I came into Damascus.”

                                                                                             Acts 22:11

"and who pierced Him" ​​Jesus was pierced by Roman soldiers but they are not meant here because these are events that are yet to happen and Roman soldiers pierced Jesus almost 2000 years ago, here we mean the generation of Jews who will live in that It is written about them:

,, And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for [his] only [son], and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for [his] firstborn.”

                                                                                             Zechariah 12:10

 

                               ,,… They shall look on him whom they pierced.”

                                                                                            John 19:37

He writes this because the Jews were responsible for Jesus' death even though the Romans carried out the crucifixion.

,, Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know: Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain:”

                                                                                             Acts 2: 22-23

,, But ye denied the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you; And killed the Prince of life, whom God hath raised from the dead; whereof we are witnesses.”

                                                                                             Acts 3: 14-15

"And all the tribes of the earth will weep for Him." We have reached the last part where we can see that when the Lord Jesus comes, people will weep and it will not be from happiness that Jesus comes but from despair and fear of the wrath of the Lord Jesus Christ.

,, And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.”

                                                                                            Mt. 24:30

,, And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?”

                                                                                            Rev. 6: 16-17

In the next verse we see that they did not repent of their sins

,, Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.”

                                                                                            Rev. 9:21

"Yes, indeed." This was written by John, but it is practically confirmed by the Holy Spirit what is described in the previous part of the verse. John seems to say, "Let it be as you planned and said because it is your will, I am completely I agree "

                                                            "Yes, indeed."
