So the end comes with clouds. These clouds are like the

cloud during the time of Moses’ wandering 40 years in the wil-

derness, with a cloud by day and a flaming fire by night for

guidance (Exod. 13:21). This cloud is the glory of the Lord—

the Shekinah Glory (for more detail, see “Feast Of Tabernacles”

in Chapter Three, “WHEN”). The Shekinah Glory will appear

and stay the next time (Isa. 4:5, 6). It will be the revelation of

the Lord Jesus with His heavenly entourage (2 Thess. 1:7; Jude

14).

MESSIAH’S REVELATION

The end will be the revelation of the second coming of Je-

sus Christ, proclaiming the Day of Vengeance. He will come

the next time as a lion and not a second time as a lamb; as the

Messiah Ben David, not again as Messiah Ben Joseph:

“…the

Lord Almighty will come with…flames of a devouring

fire…they will acknowledge the holiness of the Holy one of

Jacob, and will stand in awe of the God of Israel”

(Isa. 29:6,

23).

“They will look on me, the one they have pierced, and they

will mourn for him as one mourns for an only child, and grieve

bitterly for him as one grieves for a firstborn son. On that day

the weeping in Jerusalem will be great”

(Zech. 12:10-11). (No-

tice the end is associated with

“that day,”

a term mentioned

frequently in scripture and equated with the Day of the Lord).

The mourning over a son that was pierced is further eluci-

dated:

“Look, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will

see him, even those who pierced him; and all the peoples of

the earth will mourn because of him”

(Rev. 1:7).
