What Did Jesus Mean When He Said He Would Come on the Clouds?

Question:  Will we see the  Mighty One and Jesus in the clouds upon His return? Matthew 26:64 says,  “Yes, it is as you say,”  Jesus replied. “But I say to all of you: In the future you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Mighty One and coming on  the clouds of heaven.”

Answer:  That is what Jesus said would happen.  This is a reference to Daniel 7 and a vision Daniel had of one like a son of man coming to the Ancient of Days and receiving from Him an eternal kingdom.  All would bow down to, serve and worship, this son of man.  Stephen, the first martyr, got a glimpse of this in advance when as he was dying he saw heaven opened and Jesus standing at the right hand of God.

Jesus is referring to his second coming, which will be the polar opposite in many ways of his first coming.  He will be seen in all his glory and no one will be able to deny that he is the Messiah, the Son of God.  The book of Revelation depicts the judgments that will be poured out beforehand (Revelation 6-19) and his coming with an army to bring his kingdom to earth.
