7-JESUS COMES IN THE CLOUDS WITH POWER AND GLORY Lk 9:26-WHEN HE SHALL COME IN HIS OWN GLORY, AND IN HIS FATHER'S, AND OF THE HOLY ANGELS. Lk 21:27-AND THEN SHALL THEY SEE THE SON OF MAN COMING IN A CLOUD WITH POWER AND GREAT GLORY. Mk 13:26-AND THEN SHALL THEY SEE THE SON OF MAN COMING IN THE CLOUDS WITH GREAT POWER AND GLORY. Mt 26:64-JESUS SAITH UNTO HIM, THOU HAST SAID: NEVERTHELESS I SAY UNTO YOU, HEREAFTER SHALL YE SEE THE SON OF Mk 14:62-AND JESUS SAID, I AM: AND YE SHALL SEE THE SON OF MAN SITTING ON THE RIGHT HAND OF POWER, AND COMING IN THE CLOUDS OF HEAVEN. 1 Pe 4:13-BUT REJOICE, INASMUCH AS YE ARE PARTAKERS OF CHRIST'S SUFFERINGS; THAT, WHEN HIS GLORY SHALL BE REVEALED, YE MAY BE GLAD ALSO WITH EXCEEDING JOY.
8-JESUS COMES WITH FIRE Isa 66:15-FOR, BEHOLD, THE LORD WILL COME WITH FIRE, AND WITH HIS CHARIOTS LIKE A WHIRLWIND, TO RENDER HIS ANGER WITH FURY, AND HIS REBUKE WITH FLAMES OF FIRE.
9-JESUS COMES WITH LIGHTNINGS Mt 24:27-FOR AS THE LIGHTNING COMETH OUT OF THE EAST, AND SHINETH EVEN UNTO THE WEST; SO SHALL ALSO THE COMING OF THE SON OF MAN BE. Lk 17:24-FOR AS THE LIGHTNING, THAT LIGHTENETH OUT OF THE ONE PART UNDER HEAVEN, SHINETH UNTO THE OTHER PART UNDER HEAVEN; SO SHALL ALSO THE SON OF MAN BE IN HIS DAY. Ps 97:4-HIS LIGHTNINGS ENLIGHTENED THE WORLD: THE EARTH SAW, AND TREMBLED.
10-EVERY EYE SHALL SEE HIM Rev 1:7-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. Lk 3:6-AND ALL FLESH SHALL SEE THE SALVATION OF GOD.
11-JESUS FEET SHALL STAND ON THE MOUNT OF OLIVES Zech 14:4-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. Scripture tells us, in Job 19:25-FOR I KNOW THAT MY REDEEMER LIVETH, AND THAT HE SHALL STAND AT THE LATTER DAY UPON THE EARTH.
12-WHO SHALL BE ABLE TO STAND? Mal 3:2-BUT WHO MAY ABIDE THE DAY OF HIS COMING? AND WHO SHALL STAND WHEN HE APPEARETH? FOR HE IS LIKE A REFINER'S FIRE, AND LIKE FULLERS' SOAP.
13-THE SAINTS RETURN WITH JESUS All the saints will come back with Jesus when He returns to the earth. They will be clothed in fine linen, white and clean, and will follow Jesus riding upon white horses. All will have their new bodies of flesh and bone. It is written, Rev 19:14-AND THE ARMIES WHICH WERE IN HEAVEN FOLLOWED HIM UPON WHITE HORSES, CLOTHED IN FINE LINEN, WHITE AND CLEAN. Zech 14:5-AND THE LORD MY GOD SHALL COME, AND ALL THE SAINTS WITH THEE. Jude 14-AND ENOCH ALSO, THE SEVENTH FROM ADAM, PROPHESIED OF THESE, SAYING, BEHOLD, THE LORD COMETH WITH TEN THOUSANDS OF HIS SAINTS. Jesus coming with the saints was prophesied even before the flood. 2 Thes 1:7-THE LORD JESUS SHALL BE REVEALED FROM HEAVEN WITH HIS MIGHTY ANGELS. In the other verses, the word "saints" is used. Here the word "angels" is used. It has been noted in the Revelation that the saints were referred to, in some instances, as angels. 1 Thes 3:13-AT THE COMING OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST WITH ALL HIS SAINTS. Col 3:4-WHEN CHRIST, WHO IS OUR LIFE, SHALL APPEAR, THEN SHALL YE ALSO APPEAR WITH HIM IN GLORY.
14-THEY SHALL LOOK UPON JESUS WHOM THEY HAVE PIERCED Zech 12:10,11-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. IN THAT DAY SHALL THERE BE A GREAT MOURNING IN JERUSALEM, AS THE MOURNING OF HADADRIMMON IN THE VALLEY OF MEGIDDON.
15-THE MYSTERY OF GOD SHOULD BE FINISHED: THE BEGINNING OF THE SEVENTH TRUMPET Rev 10:7-BUT IN THE DAYS OF THE VOICE OF THE SEVENTH ANGEL (or when the seventh angel is about to sound his trumpet-NIV, or shofar), WHEN HE SHALL BEGIN TO SOUND, THE MYSTERY (or hidden plan) OF GOD SHOULD BE FINISHED (or accomplished, or brought to completion) AS HE HATH DECLARED (or announced) TO HIS SERVANTS THE PROPHETS. In this verse are words, such as, "When the seventh angel is about to sound." In Rev 11:15, note the words, "The seventh angel sounded." This seems to be saying, when the angel is just about to sound the trumpet, at that exact instant, the hidden plan of God will be brought to completion. This occurs immediately after the Tribulation. The seventh trumpet actually sounding is in Rev 11:15. The mystery of God is finished when Jesus returns; as it is written, FOR NOW WE SEE THROUGH A GLASS, DARKLY; BUT THEN FACE TO FACE: NOW I KNOW IN PART; BUT THEN SHALL I KNOW EVEN AS ALSO I AM KNOWN-1 Cor 13:12. From the time that the seventh trumpet begins to sound, in Rev 10:7, to the time it does sound, in Rev 11:15, is a very short period.
16, 17-THE SEVENTH TRUMPETTHE WRATH OF JESUS HAS COME Rev 11:15-AND THE SEVENTH ANGEL SOUNDED (his shofar or trumpet). Rev 11:18-AND THE NATIONS (or Goyim) WERE ANGRY (or raged), AND THY WRATH (or rage) IS COME. The nations of the world now understand (perhaps, as a result of the two prophets testimony, death, and resurrection) that their time is now up. Their disobedience, rebellion, blasphemy, and contempt against God is now at an end. They are enraged. It is written, THE HEATHEN RAGED, THE KINGDOMS WERE MOVED: HE UTTERED HIS VOICE, THE EARTH MELTED-Ps 46:6. Jesus is enraged or wroth; as it is written, I HAVE LONG TIME HOLDEN MY PEACE; I HAVE BEEN STILL, AND REFRAINED MYSELF: NOW WILL I CRY LIKE A TRAVAILING WOMAN; I WILL DESTROY AND DEVOUR AT ONCE-Isa 42:14. Rev 11:18 continues, AND THE TIME OF THE DEAD, THAT THEY SHOULD BE JUDGED. Some consider that this is referring to the great white throne judgment, which will not take place for about another thousand years. Others consider it may be referring to the judgment of the nations, which occurs right after Armageddon. The verse continues, AND THAT THOU SHOULDEST GIVE REWARD UNTO THY SERVANTS THE PROPHETS, AND TO THE SAINTS (or holy people), AND THEM THAT FEAR THY NAME, (both) SMALL AND GREAT. The saints return with Jesus-ref Zech 14:5. Rewards will be given at that time. This is further confirmed in Mt 16:27. Some rewards will include the position of authority each person will have. The verse continues, AND SHOULDEST DESTROY THEM WHICH DESTROY THE EARTH (it is also the time for destroying those who destroy the earth-JNT111).
18-THE TEMPLE OF GOD OPENS Rev 11:19-AND THE TEMPLE OF GOD WAS OPENED IN HEAVEN, AND THERE WAS SEEN (or appeared) IN HIS TEMPLE THE ARK OF HIS TESTAMENT (or covenant). The covenant God has with Israel may be seen here as Jesus is about to return. This is Gods promise to Israel. He is keeping His Word.
19-LIGHTNINGS, VOICES, THUNDERINGS, AN EARTHQUAKE, AND GREAT HAIL (Scripture with commentary)
Rev 11:19-AND THERE WERE LIGHTNINGS, AND VOICES (or rumblings), AND THUNDERINGS, AND AN EARTHQUAKE, AND GREAT (or violent) HAIL (or a great hailstorm). Lightnings may be referring to the second coming of Jesus. It is written, Mt 24:27-FOR AS THE LIGHTNING COMETH OUT OF THE EAST, AND SHINETH EVEN UNTO THE WEST; SO SHALL ALSO THE COMING OF THE SON OF MAN BE. Lightnings are mentioned in Rev 4:5; 8:5,13; 10:3,4; 11:15,19; and 16:18. Voices may be referring to the voices in heaven and the things which they are saying. Voices are mentioned in Rev 4:5; 8:5,13; 10:3,4; 11:15,19; and 16:18. Thunderings could have some connection with the seven thunders or some other judgments. Thunders or thunderings are mentioned in Rev 4:5; 8:5; 10:3,4; 11:19; 16:18; and 19:6. Earthquake appears singular here. This may be one of several that happen around the time of Armageddon, as many are listed. Earthquakes are mentioned in Rev 6:12; 8:5; 11:13,19; and 16:18. The earthquake, in Rev 16:18, is worse than any since man has been on the earth. Hail is mentioned in Rev 8:7; 11:19; and 16:21. The hailstones, of Rev 16:21, weigh about 100 pounds each.
Some verses in the Revelation containing the words, lightnings, voices, thunderings, earthquake, and hail. These are from different time periods.
Rev 4:5-AND OUT OF (or from) THE THRONE PROCEEDED LIGHTNINGS AND THUNDERINGS AND VOICES: AND THERE WERE SEVEN LAMPS OF FIRE BURNING BEFORE THE THRONE, WHICH ARE THE SEVEN SPIRITS (or sevenfold Spirit) OF GOD. Rev 6:12-AND I BEHELD WHEN HE HAD OPENED (or broke) THE SIXTH SEAL, AND, LO, THERE WAS A GREAT EARTHQUAKE; AND THE SUN BECAME BLACK AS SACKCLOTH OF HAIR (worn in mourning or made of goat hair), AND THE (full) MOON BECAME AS BLOOD (red). Rev 8:5-AND THE ANGEL TOOK THE CENSER (or incense-bowl), AND FILLED IT WITH FIRE OF (or from) THE ALTAR, AND CAST (or hurled) IT (down) INTO (or on) THE EARTH: AND THERE WERE (or came) VOICES (or rumblings), AND THUNDERINGS, AND LIGHTNINGS, AND AN EARTHQUAKE. Rev 8:7-THE FIRST ANGEL SOUNDED (his shofar or trumpet), AND THERE FOLLOWED (or came) HAIL AND FIRE MINGLED (or mixed) WITH BLOOD, AND THEY WERE CAST (or hurled down) UPON THE EARTH: (and a third of the earth was burned up-NASB) AND THE THIRD PART OF TREES WAS BURNT UP, AND ALL GREEN GRASS WAS BURNT UP. Rev 10:3-AND CRIED (or shouted) WITH A LOUD VOICE, AS (loud as) WHEN A LION ROARETH: AND WHEN HE HAD CRIED (or shouted), SEVEN THUNDERS UTTERED (or sounded with) THEIR VOICES. Rev 10:4-AND WHEN THE SEVEN THUNDERS HAD UTTERED THEIR VOICES (or spoke), I WAS ABOUT TO WRITE: AND I HEARD A VOICE FROM HEAVEN SAYING UNTO ME, SEAL UP THOSE THINGS WHICH THE SEVEN THUNDERS UTTERED (or said), AND WRITE THEM NOT. Rev 11:13-AND THE (very) SAME HOUR WAS THERE A GREAT EARTHQUAKE, AND THE TENTH PART OF THE CITY FELL (or collapsed), AND IN THE EARTHQUAKE WERE SLAIN (or killed) OF MEN SEVEN THOUSAND: AND THE REMNANT WERE AFFRIGHTED (or terrified), AND GAVE GLORY TO THE GOD OF HEAVEN. Rev 11:15-AND THE SEVENTH ANGEL SOUNDED (his shofar or trumpet); AND THERE WERE GREAT (or loud) VOICES IN HEAVEN, SAYING, THE KINGDOMS OF THIS WORLD ARE BECOME THE KINGDOMS OF OUR LORD, AND OF HIS CHRIST (or Messiah); AND HE SHALL REIGN (or rule) FOR EVER AND EVER. Rev 11:19-AND THE TEMPLE OF GOD WAS OPENED IN HEAVEN, AND THERE WAS SEEN IN HIS TEMPLE THE ARK OF HIS TESTAMENT: AND THERE WERE LIGHTNINGS, AND VOICES, AND THUNDERINGS, AND AN EARTHQUAKE, AND GREAT HAIL. Rev 16:18-AND THERE WERE VOICES (or rumblings), AND (peals of) THUNDERS, AND (flashes of) LIGHTNINGS; AND THERE WAS A GREAT (or massive) EARTHQUAKE, SUCH AS WAS NOT (or has never occurred) SINCE MEN WERE UPON THE EARTH, SO MIGHTY (or violent, or tremendous) AN EARTHQUAKE, AND SO GREAT. Rev 16:21-AND THERE FELL UPON MEN A GREAT HAIL (or huge hailstones) OUT OF HEAVEN (or the sky), EVERY STONE ABOUT THE WEIGHT OF A TALENT (or seventy, or a hundred pounds each): AND MEN BLASPHEMED (or cursed) GOD BECAUSE OF THE PLAGUE OF THE HAIL; FOR (or because) THE PLAGUE THEREOF WAS EXCEEDING GREAT (or terrible). Rev 19:6-AND I HEARD AS IT WERE THE VOICE OF A GREAT MULTITUDE (or huge crowd), AND AS THE VOICE (or sound) OF MANY (rushing) WATERS, AND AS THE VOICE (or peals) OF MIGHTY THUNDERINGS, SAYING (or shouting), ALLELUIA: FOR THE LORD GOD OMNIPOTENT (or Almighty) REIGNETH (Adonai, God of heaven's armies, has begun His reign!-JNT112).
20-THE KINGS OF THE EARTH AND THE ANTICHRIST ARE GATHERED TO MAKE WAR AGAINST JESUS Rev 19:19-AND I SAW THE BEAST (which is the Antichrist), AND THE KINGS OF THE EARTH, AND THEIR ARMIES, GATHERED TOGETHER TO MAKE WAR (or do battle) AGAINST HIM (Jesus) THAT SAT ON THE HORSE, AND AGAINST HIS ARMY. These are the saints that follow Jesus. It appears that the armies of the world were somehow deceived and came to Israel under false pretenses. Now their real purpose for being there is revealed. The spirit of Satan, the Antichrist, and the false prophet have coerced them to gather in Israel for the primary purpose of making war against Jesus. This is the Battle of Armageddon. It is written, Rev 17:14-THESE SHALL MAKE WAR WITH THE LAMB, AND THE LAMB SHALL OVERCOME THEM.
21-HE GATHERED THEM TO A PLACE CALLED ARMAGEDDON: THE BATTLE IS AT HAND Rev 16:13-AND I SAW THREE UNCLEAN SPIRITS (that looked) LIKE FROGS COME OUT OF THE MOUTH OF THE DRAGON (which is Satan), AND OUT OF THE MOUTH OF THE BEAST (which is the Antichrist), AND OUT OF THE MOUTH OF THE FALSE PROPHET. Rev 16:14-FOR THEY ARE THE SPIRITS OF DEVILS (or demonic spirits), WORKING (or performing) MIRACLES (or miraculous signs), WHICH GO FORTH UNTO THE KINGS OF THE EARTH AND OF THE WHOLE (inhabited) WORLD, TO GATHER (or assemble) THEM TO THE BATTLE OF THAT (war of the) GREAT DAY OF GOD ALMIGHTY.
Rev 16:15-BEHOLD (or look), I (Jesus) COME AS A THIEF. Jesus comes as a thief to those that are not blessed, the unrepentant, even those that are naked, which do not have on the clothing of righteousness through Jesus Christ. The announcement of "Jesus coming as a thief," is a message to them. However, the next message is to the saints that have survived the Tribulation. BLESSED IS HE THAT WATCHETH (or stays awake, or alert). Those that repent during the Tribulation will be able to watch and understand the time that Jesus will return, as they compare the Scriptures with the events that are happening and count 42 months from the abomination of desolation. As they go through this horrible period, those that survive should be able to understand through Gods Word what events are still ahead. BLESSED IS HE THAT KEEPETH HIS GARMENTS (clean or keeps his clothes with him-NIV), LEST HE WALK NAKED, AND THEY SEE HIS SHAME (or be shamefully exposed, or publicly put to shame!). Armageddon is at hand. The return of Jesus is at hand. The person that is watching for Jesus' return, who does not turn from following Jesus, who does not turn back to sin, but remains faithful (even to the point of being killed)this person is blessed. By doing these things, he is keeping his clothes. His clothing is Jesus. Should he turn from Jesus, then he is no longer clothed with righteousness. If a person is no longer clothed with the righteousness of Jesus, then he is naked; others can see his shame, as he is exposed.
Rev 16:16-AND HE (or they) GATHERED THEM (the kings) TOGETHER INTO A PLACE CALLED IN THE HEBREW TONGUE ARMAGEDDON (or "hill of Megiddo"). The kings and armies of the world are gathered together at this place. It is written, THEREFORE WAIT YE UPON ME, SAITH THE LORD, UNTIL THE DAY THAT I RISE UP TO THE PREY: FOR MY DETERMINATION IS TO GATHER THE NATIONS, THAT I MAY ASSEMBLE THE KINGDOMS, TO POUR UPON THEM MINE INDIGNATION, EVEN ALL MY FIERCE ANGER: FOR ALL THE EARTH SHALL BE DEVOURED WITH THE FIRE OF MY JEALOUSY-Zeph 3:8. Megiddo, today, is a large hill or mound of ruins from ancient times (also called a "tel"). It sits on the edge of a vast plain, known as Esdraelon or Jezreel Valley. Here, in this fertile farmland of northern Israel and extending through the Jordan Valley, the great armies of the world are expected to assemble for war. This area covers nearly 200 miles in length-ref Rev 14:20.
22-THE LAND IS FULL OF SILVER, GOLD, AND IDOLS Isa 2:7-9-THEIR LAND ALSO IS FULL OF SILVER AND GOLD, NEITHER IS THERE ANY END OF THEIR TREASURES; THEIR LAND IS ALSO FULL OF HORSES, NEITHER IS THERE ANY END OF THEIR CHARIOTS: THEIR LAND ALSO IS FULL OF IDOLS; THEY WORSHIP THE WORK OF THEIR OWN HANDS, THAT WHICH THEIR OWN FINGERS HAVE MADE: AND (or so) THE MEAN (or common) MAN BOWETH DOWN, AND THE GREAT MAN (or man of importance) HUMBLETH HIMSELF: THEREFORE FORGIVE THEM NOT (or do not forgive them-NIV).
23-IT IS DONE: THE SEVENTH VIAL Rev 16:17-AND THE SEVENTH ANGEL POURED OUT HIS VIAL (or bowl) INTO THE AIR; AND THERE CAME A GREAT (or loud) VOICE OUT OF THE TEMPLE OF HEAVEN, FROM THE THRONE, SAYING, IT IS DONE. The seventh and final vial is poured out into the air. An announcement is made, with a loud voice, from the temple in heaven. That voice says, "IT IS DONE."
It’s ALL about CHRIST!
Thanks for all the caps. I was running low.
Don’t scare me. I thought this was a news story and I’d missed it.
AND JESUS SAID “BEHOLD! YOUR CAPS LOCK IS STUCK!”
(CAPS ON) QUICK!!!! EVERYBODY LOOK BUSY (caps off) ...
AMEN and AMEN
Come Lord Jesus!
“And every eye shall see him.” Funny, but as a young child I do remember looking up and seeing a cloud that looked just like Jesus.
Because it will be in all caps.
Some wear their caps backwards to.
Time is short all-
Rejoice but be sure to tell as many people the good news as you can.
We don’t have a lot of time- and there are a LOT of deceived people sitting on fences right now- The trials we are seeing are allowed by God to force people to choose their team.
Make sure folks you care about know the team choices.
That's funny but I'm reluctant to laugh for fear of offending someone's religiosity.
