You were told the wrong interpretation of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, referring to the CLOUDS of the BOOK of ACTS, and other passages in Matthew, Luke, Hebrews... You have been confused and this is as expected, until the proper timing. Now let's gain the right interpretation.
Therefore when Jesus Christ returns he must come back from the earth as he is being watched by disciples, and he will come back as he blesses his disciples. One thing Jesus absolutely did not do as he was being watched leaving was:
go into heaven in a cloud.
|Look at the fluffy little clouds, but don't get confused!|
Did NOT Jesus Christ a/k/a Yahshua give a clear and firm teaching about Heaven?? Yes he did! Jesus Christ proclaimed as did John the Baptist"that heaven is at hand". At hand is not in the sky. And clouds do not mean clouds in the atmosphere. Clouds in the O.T. had meant a large unified mass of witnesses gathered around. Or it means "the status of being hidden, to hide".
“FROM THAT TIME JESUS BEGAN TO PREACH, AND TO SAY, REPENT; FOR THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS AT HAND.” MATTHEW 4:17.
“THESE TWELVE JESUS SENT FORTH, AND COMMANDED THEM, SAYING, GO NOT
INTO THE WAY OF THE GENTILES, AND INTO ANY CITY OF THE SAMARITANS ENTER
YE NOT; BUT GO RATHER TO THE LOST SHEEP OF THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL. AND AS
YE GO, PREACH, SAYING, THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS AT HAND. HEAL THE SICK,
CLEANSE THE LEPERS, RAISE THE DEAD, CAST OUT DEVILS; FREELY YE HAVE
RECEIVED, FREELY GIVE.” Matthew 10:5 to 8.
The concept of "heaven" and where exactly is heaven, what is it? This is a whole other discussion. This is very deep theology and indeed the cosmology of the Universe. We can get into that in this brief article, later on we will explore Heaven and comparison of "Kingdom of Heaven" versus "Kingdom of God", are they the same or overlapping to what degree?
