Did You Know? The Lord Has a Way of Returning Other Than With Clouds in the Last Days
At present, disasters such as earthquakes, famines, and plagues occur more and more frequently all over the world, and the prophecies of the Lord’s return have been pretty much fulfilled. Many people sense that the Lord has likely returned already. But why have we not yet seen the Lord coming on a cloud to appear to us? The fact is that there are mysteries behind the Lord’s return. Let’s first look at several prophecies. “Behold, I come as a thief” (Revelation 16:15). “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” (Luke 17:24–25). Here it is prophesied that the Lord will come “as a thief” and “at an hour when we think not”, which means He will come quietly and secretly. The “Son of man” refers to One who is born of man and a flesh possessed of normal humanity, just like the Lord Jesus who was called the Son of man and Christ. Therefore, the “Son of man” in these prophecies means that in the last days the Lord will become flesh and come before people are aware of it.
Just as God’s word says, “When God came from heaven above to the earth, no one in heaven or on earth was aware of this, for this is the true meaning of God returning under concealment. He has been working and living in the flesh for a long time, and yet no one has been aware. Even to this day, no one recognizes it. Perhaps this will remain an eternal riddle. … At the break of dawn, unbeknownst to the multitudes of humanity, God came to earth and began His life in the flesh. People were unaware of the coming of this moment. Maybe they were all fast asleep; maybe many who were watchfully awake were waiting, and maybe many were praying silently to God in heaven. Yet among all these many people, not a single one knew that God had already arrived on earth.”
At this point, you may be puzzled: How then will the prophecies of the Lord’s coming with clouds be fulfilled? Actually, the Lord’s return will be done in stages according to His plan. He first comes secretly in the manner of the incarnate Son of man, and then He will descend among clouds openly. If you want to know more details, please contact us on Messenger.
