For just as the lightning flashes from the east and shines and is seen as far as the west, so will the coming of the Son of Man be.
Wherever there is a fallen body (a corpse), there the vultures (or eagles) will flock together. [Job_39:30]
The Coming Of The Son Of Man
- Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not shed its light, and the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. [Isa_13:10; Isa_34:4; Joe_2:10-11; Zep_1:15]
- Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn and beat their breasts and lament in anguish, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory [in brilliancy and splendor]. [Dan_7:13; Rev_1:7]
- And He will send out His angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather His elect (His chosen ones) from the four winds, [even] from one end of the universe to the other. [Isa_27:13; Zec_9:14]
