Exodus 16:10, 19:9, 34:5, 40:34, Leviticus 16:2, Numbers 11:25, 2nd Samuel 22:10, Job 22:14, Psalms 18:11, 68:4, 97:2, 104:3, Isaiah 19:1, Jeremiah 4:13, Ezekiel 40:3, Daniel 7:13-14, Joel 2:2, Nahum 1:3, and Zephaniah 1:15.

All of these Old Testament verses speak of God coming in, with, and on clouds; that this identified his presence, and often was judgmental in nature.

Yet all of the following verses are supposed to speak of some physical and visible coming of the Lord, coming on clouds, and in the glory of the Lord?

Why are we completely changing the nature of the coming of the Lord?

Matthew 24:30, 26:63-64, Mark 13:26, 14:62, Luke 21:26-27, Revelation 1:7, and 14:14.

Of all these New Testament verses, my favorites are Matthew 26:63-64 (cf. Mark 14:62) because this is where Jesus told Caiaphas that he (Caiaphas) would see the son of man “on the right hand” and “coming in the clouds” and this is very statement that got Christ charged with blasphemy.

Caiaphas was the High Priest, and this shows he was clearly familiar with these phrases from scripture, and their meaning.

“Right Hand” and “Coming in Clouds” are phrases known to indicate the power of God, and often mean coming in judgment. Matthew 21-23 speaks of this same judgment coming upon them; Christ says it would be in their own generation; it also says they know he’s speaking of them.
