I was studying the Word this morning, the gospel of Saint John, and the Holy Spirit brought the word to life to me. Speaking to His disciples, it is written, Jesus said:
7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. JOHN 16:7
Jesus could not send the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, to His disciples until He went away. He revealed to me that He, Jesus, cannot return until the Holy Spirit leaves the earth. It seems the earth cannot not have Jesus and the Holy Spirit at the same time. As the Holy Spirit indwells His Bride, we must leave, be taken up, that Jesus may return; then, and only then, can every eye (which remains) see Him.
Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.
All eyes will see him return to earth except His Bride. We did not pierce him; but, the wicked did. Nor do we have reason to wail as we would rejoice to see Him; but, unbelievers will realize they were wrong. Clearly, His Bride is not here. It is written, His Saints will return with Him at that final judgment day. Our new vessels are described, “as the angels of God in heaven.”
14 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints,
15 To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.
30 For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.
I pray that you and I be accounted to be worthy to be among His Saints. Amen.
Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
