Coming With The Clouds!
"Behold, He is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him; and all the tribes of the earth shall gaze upon Him and beat their breasts and mourn and lament over Him. Even so. Amen." Revelation 1:7 Amplified New Testament
I often find myself gazing at the sky in awe and wonder of how magnificent clouds are. My husband and I were walking the other day and the sky was particularly clear. The majestic cloud formations were so beautiful against the backdrop of the clean blue sky. We both were in awe of the beauty that God has provided to us. If you look at the clouds with an imaginative eye, you will see shapes and designs made by God Himself. Have you ever thought about what is beyond the clouds that our natural eye cannot see? The wonders of Heaven are there, just waiting be be enjoyed by the saints at the end of their life.
The scripture above says that Christ is coming with the clouds. No, whether or not your heart is right with God and you have repented of your sins, you will not miss this event. It says that every eye will see Him, even those who persecuted Him. All the tribes of the earth (all mankind) will gaze upon Him. Those who are not ready will beat their breasts and mourn and lament. But can you imagine what a wonderful homecoming it will be for those who are faithful and have had their sins forgiven? What a wonderful time of rejoicing! Do you have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ? Have you asked Him to forgive your sins? You can be ready and when you stop and look at the clouds, you will have the assurance that you are looking at the gateway to your new eternal home.
