    No Secret Coming

    In this connection it will not be amiss to call attention to the fact that the coming of the Lord “as a thief in the night” relates simply to the unexpectedness of His coming, and not to the manner. He will return just as He ascended. 2Acts 1:10-12. “While they beheld, He was taken up; and a cloud received Him out of their sight.” So “He cometh with clouds, and every eye shall see Him.” 3Revelation 1:7. “The Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the Archangel, and with the trump of God.” 5Matthew 24:26, 27. “If they shall say unto you, Behold, He is in the desert; go not forth; behold, He is in the secret chamber; believe it not. For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” The text in Luke tells us that the times of the Gentiles are to be terminated by the coming of the Lord “with power and great glory,” and that the people shall see it, and shall be terrified even to death by the terrible commotion in heaven and earth in connection with that event.EVCO 488.2
