Revelation 1:7 KJV Coming With Clouds

Revelation 1:7 (KJV)
Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.

 

Concerning the opening words of this verse, John Gill writes,
“The manner of his coming will be “with clouds”; either figuratively, with angels, who will attend him both for grandeur and service, or literally, in the clouds of heaven…”

 

Albert Barnes says,
“The design of introducing this representation of the Saviour, and of the manner in which he would appear, seems to be to impress the mind with a sense of the majesty and glory…”

 

Jamieson, Faucett and Brown adds to this that clouds often represent “wrath to the sinner.”

 

Clouds can mean:
Something of grandeur to us
Those billowy shining white clouds are a magnificent sight to behold.

 

Something of peace to us
I am reminded of my brother and me in our youth, laying in the grassy yard, looking at the clouds as they peacefully floated by.

 

Something ominous to us
This became the most real to me when, for a brief time, I lived in Oklahoma. Dark clouds there often indicated hailstorms and possible tornadoes.

 

 

So when Christ comes:

  • It is magnificent and glorious to the believer
  • It signals a time of great peace to those who are his but
  • It ushers in a great storm of tribulation for those who have refused him
