As a child, my grandfather used to talk with me about Jesus coming back on His cloud. While it seemed so magical as a child, as I grew in my faith I realized it wasn’t a fairy tale, it was a promise. Big Daddy Weave’s song, “The Lion and the Lamb” speaks of Jesus coming on the clouds, too.

While there is a lot of mystery around the return of Christ, the Bible does reveal SOME things. Let’s explore them together.
On this episode I discuss:
- Taking a B.I.T.E. out of Scripture – this week’s Bible Interaction Tool Exercises include:
- Study a topic
- Remember the people in the Bible were real
- Read in context
- Record your observations
- Make a list
- The verses where Jesus is referred to as the Lion and the Lamb – Revelation 5:5-6
- How this topic was personal because it reminded me of discussions with my grandfather
- The story of Jesus leaving earth on a cloud – Acts 1:1-11
- Observing what happened in Acts 1 and considering the probable reactions of the apostles
- Remembering that Jesus said he would be coming on the clouds back in Matthew 24
- Making a list of all that Jesus predicts in Matthew 24
- Meredith’s bucket list
- Paul’s words of encouragement to believers as it relates to Jesus coming back on the clouds – 1 Thessalonians 4:15-18
- Keep reading in 1 Thessalonians to get an idea of what we are to do with that information – 1 Thessalonians 5:1-6
Don’t be surprised. Be ready. Wake up! Be sober…vigilant…have the presence of mind to not be taken for surprise. Jesus is coming again on His cloud!
