Scripture Of The Week

Behold, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him.  Rev. 1:7

On April 5, 2015, NBC launched a miniseries entitled “A .D.” a follow up to the “The Bible”, earlier produced by Roma Downey and Mark Burnett.  It was reported during filming of “A.D.” that, while the actors were depicting a scene from Acts, they noticed clouds in the sky that were formed in the perfect shape of a cross.  Downey said they felt it was a sign and a blessing over the work they were doing to bring the Bible to the home screen.

However that may be, we do know that clouds are mentioned often in the Bible.  A few examples:  A cloud guided the Israelites through the wilderness (Exodus 40:34-38); God spoke from a cloud to Moses on Mt. Sinai (Exodus 24:16); and, the voice of God was heard by a select set witnesses at the transfiguration of Jesus (Matthew 17:5).  And, perhaps most well known, Jesus ascended to Heaven after His resurrection in a cloud (Acts 1:9).  And, in today’s verse, John was inspired to tell us just how Christ will return – on clouds of glory.

At this Easter season, it is more than appropriate to ask:  How many will be ready for His return?  How many even look for, and pray for, His return?  May we be willing and ready for that time and do what we can to share the message of the Lord’s offer of salvation and HIs promised return to bring God’s people home to heaven, so as to encourage others to want to become ready, as well.
