LESSON 11

 

The Lord is coming from Heaven

 

  Luke 21:28  And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

 

Coming with the Clouds

  Acts 1:9-11  …this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner…

 

  Revelation 1:7  Behold, he cometh with clouds…

 

  Matthew 26:64  …coming in the clouds of heaven.

 

  Luke 21:27  …Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

 

The Two Witnesses ascend up into Heaven like Jesus

  Revelation 11:12 …they ascended up to heaven in a cloud…

 

The Saints will also ascend up into Heaven like Jesus

  1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 …caught up together with them in the clouds…

 

The Clouds are His Chariot

  Psalms 104:3  Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters: who maketh the clouds his chariot: who walketh upon the wings of the wind:

 

  Isaiah 19:1  The burden of Egypt. Behold, the LORD rideth upon a swift cloud…

 

Comment:

Much speculation has been made regarding Heaven and the book of revelations.  There are many interpretations of when the Saints will be taken from the earth.

 

It is so important that we meditate on the things that minister faith to us.  We know without a doubt that there is a Heaven above, and by the Holy Spirit that lives within us we know that Heaven is our home.  We also know that Heaven is a mystery as Paul the apostle, and beloved John, both described. We don’t know  when the day will be, but we shall see him and shall rejoice at his glorious return.
