We’ll save that for next week. You can’t mistake this, the 7 beatitudes even from Jesus, but here unmistakably bursts into a doxology. You’ll find Paul likewise, when Paul’s writing and he’s really getting into it then he’ll say “Glory to God and peace be to you, amen and amen.” “Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him.” Stop. It is not going to be a subjective situation. Not every mind will see Him. “Every eye will see him, every eye and in looking at this, I thought you know if one wasn’t well versed enough there might be people that say that there’s a contradiction because it says He’s going to come with clouds. What’s it say? “He cometh with clouds.” You read in Daniel, you’ll find the same verbiage being used in Daniel, Daniel I believe it’s 7 – let me go find it for you.

Pastor Melissa Scott tells us that it’s important because you need to see it’s not a one-time writing, some of you will probably find it before me because I’m not going the fast. Daniel 7:13. Tell me if you read things many times over in the Bible, isn’t it confirmation that more than one voice is speaking or the same voice is speaking through and through and there’s some verity, some solid something to hang onto. Daniel 7:13 says, “I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him, and you read on but that’s way, way, way before. Of course I said Daniel and Revelation go together but there are other texts that support this very thing.

You can read them in Thessalonians. 1st and 2nd Thessalonians you have references to the same “He cometh with clouds.” Now, if you go and turn to Revelation 16:15, and bear with me because I’m almost done. Revelation 16:15 has Jesus speaking, He says “Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.” Everybody there? I want you to read that, then I want you to go back to Revelation 3:3. I’m making you travel through the Bible today. In the letter dictated to the church in Sardis, write – if you look to the latter part of the verse “If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.” Go back to 1:7.
