The last days have already arrived, and many believers yearn for the Lord to return and take them up into the kingdom of heaven. But do you know how the Lord will appear to us when He returns? Will it really be as we imagine, that He will appear openly, directly descending upon a cloud? Almighty God says, “Do you wish to see Jesus? Do you wish to live with Jesus? Do you wish to hear the words spoken by Jesus? … In what manner will Jesus return? You believe that Jesus will return upon a white cloud, but I ask you: To what does this white cloud refer? With so many followers of Jesus awaiting His return, among which people shall He descend?” “When you see Jesus descend from the heaven upon a white cloud with your own eyes, this will be the public appearance of the Sun of righteousness. … It will herald the end of God’s management plan, and will be when God rewards the good and punishes the wicked. For the judgment of God will have ended before man sees signs, when there is only the expression of truth” (The Word Appears in the Flesh).
