THE SIGN IN HEAVEN THAT
"Then will appear in heaven the sign that heralds the Son of Man. All the peoples of the world will make lamentation, (1) and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with great power and glory." (Matt 24:30 NEB).
"…a wind came up out of the sea and set the waves in turmoil. And this wind brought a human figure from the depths, and as I watched, this man came flying (Latin: grew strong) with the clouds of heaven." (From 2 Esdras 13:2,3 NEB).
"Behold, he is coming with the clouds! Every eye shall see him, and among them those who pierced him; and all the peoples of the world shall lament in remorse." (2) (From Rev 1:7 NEB).
"For like the lightning-flash that lights up the earth from end to end, will the Son of Man be when his day comes." (Luke 17:24 NEB. See Matt 24:27 NEB).
"At that moment Michael (The Christ) shall appear, Michael the great captain, who stands guard over your fellow-countrymen; and there will be a time of distress such as has never been since they became a nation till that moment. But at that moment your people will be delivered, every one who is written in the book: many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth will wake, some to everlasting life and some to the reproach of eternal abhorrence." (Dan 12:1,2 NEB).
