Then they will see 'the Son of Man coming in a cloud' with power and great glory. (Luke 21:27
That's a mysterious term, "Coming on clouds of glory." It is intended to be. Clouds are the biblical symbol of mystery and of the presence of God. "He is coming with the clouds," says Revelation 1:7. "Lo, I am coming to you in a thick cloud," said God to Moses at Mount Sinai. A cloud symbolizing the divine presence covered the tabernacle in the wilderness (Exodus 40: 34-36). When the New Testament says that Jesus is coming with the clouds it is a powerful symbol of mystery and divinity. It reminds us that God is with us. We are not alone!
God of everyone, help me to better feel your presence in my life today. In Jesus' name, Amen.
