“After the tribulation…they will see the Son of Man coming in clouds with great power and glory” (Mark 13:24, 26; Matthew 24:30; Luke 21:27).
WHAT A STATEMENT! The lowly, humble Son of God, rejected by men and crucified by men, will come again “with great power and glory”! As John begins to write down the details of the vision he saw on the island called Patmos, he says, “Behold, He is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him, and all tribes of the earth will wail on account of Him. Even so. Amen” (Revelation 1:7).
There will not be any mistake about His identity or His role as King, Lord and final Judge. These two features will clearly distinguish Him; “great power and glory”! As the universe acknowledged the coming of Jesus the first time, so every creature will see the magnificent beauty and greatness of the Savior at His final coming.
Two of the striking moments of this display of “great power and glory” will be the reaction from those who crucified Him. The person they thought had come to an end His life through their murderous deed will fill their vision with His greatness. Every person in every tribe that rejected Jesus as Savior will bow their knee to Him and “every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” (Philippians 2:9-11).
You and I have the opportunity now to introduce persons to Jesus as the “Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6) and who made our peace by His blood (Ephesians 2:13-14). Let’s make that our goal before the end comes. Then it will be too late.
