waves will sweep across the land, as it rises and sinks (Amos

9:5). This, along with the earth changing its axial orientatio

ANGELIC CLOUDS

We have seen that the coming of the Son of Man will be

accompanied with clouds; indeed it is assured by Christ’s own

words (Matt. 24:30). He will mount the cherubim (the angels

surrounding His throne) and come down. The cheru-

bim/chariot (an immense cloud) is described in the first chap-

ter of Ezekiel. God has a number of other chariots as well:

“The chariots of God are tens of thousands and thousands

of thousands”

(Psalm 68:17). We are reminded by Enoch that,

“…the Lord is coming with thousands upon thousands of his

holy ones to judge everyone”

(Jude 14). Clouds, chariots, and

angels are all closely associated (Psalm 104:3-4).

When the Lord is revealed from heaven, it will be with

chariots and blazing fire (Isa. 66:15), and with angels and flam-

ing fire (2 Thess. 1:2). At the end, He will be with all His saints

(1 Thess. 3:13). What a glorious procession it will be! Those of

us who have been redeemed by Christ, along with the angels,

will come back to the earth!

saints rejoice in this honor and sing for joy on their beds. May
