The return of the Lord shall be victorious. Every eye shall see Him. His return is made crystal clear in Rev.1:7 . It shall be “with clouds,” accompanied with great glory and power. Matthew 24:30 describes it as a day all the tribes of the earth shall mourn.
One of the key elements of the Book of Revelation is the constant use of figures of speech from the Old Testament. The words, “they who pierced Him” is an obvious reference to the prophecy in Zechariah (Zech.12:10). Those who pierced His side shall be astonished, alongside those who blaspheme and pierce Him with their sins and have not repented . For the persecutors of the Church, it shall be a day of astonishment and terror. A day of vengeance for the One who says, “vengeance is mine” (Deut.32:35, Rom.12:19).
All the tribes of the earth shall see Him and wail, not in repentance, because that time would have passed, but in regret.
Through the eyes of faith, we can see long distance, we can see things that seem afar off. Though His return may seem far away, let us hold on to His promises and be expectant of His glorious return.
