|Daniel 7:13-14 |
13 I saw in the night visions, and behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven,1 and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. [Sing to God, sing praises to his name, extol him who rides upon the clouds — his name is JAH — rejoice before him. Psa 68:4]
14 And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.
1 I saw in the night visions, and behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, So Daniel sees Jesus coming on a cloud; he sees him in his mind's eye. This is exactly how man will see the "return" or 2nd appearance of Jesus, in their mind's eye, coming as though on a cloud.
He said: For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels;
and then he shall reward every man according to his works. (Not just a particular generation.)
Some standing here shall not taste death till they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom. Mat 16:27-8,Mar 8:38,9:1,Luk 9:26-27
Those not purified, to see Jesus' coming, (appearing in their hearts), before death, see him as they die, as all peoples, all nations, all generations do.
Behold, he comes with clouds; and every eye will see him, and also those who pierced him: (also, the Jews 2000 years ago)
and all the peoples of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. Rev 1:7.
2000 years ago, to the Jewish High Priest and the Pharisees at his trial, Jesus said..
you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Power, and coming on the clouds of heaven. Mark 14:62
This is not a particular generation in our time or later. (See Howgill for more on those not purified).
