Day by Day with Martin Luther

Read: Hosea 10:1-14:9 Jude 1:1-25 Proverbs 29:15-17

“Christ’s Coming”

“ And then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.”
[Luke 21:27]

Here, “power” may again signify the hosts of angels, saints, and all creatures that will come with Christ to judgement. He says not only that He will come, but also that they shall see Him come. At His birth He came also, but was seen by almost no one. He comes now daily through the Gospel, spiritually into believing hearts; no one sees that either. But His next coming will be public, so that all must see Him, as Revelation 1:7 says, “and every eye will see Him.” And they shell see that He is none other than the Christ, in bodily form, as He was born from Mary and walked on earth. But when He says, “they will see the Son of Man,” he clearly indicates that it will be a bodily form yet in great power, with the great host of angels and all glory. He will sit on a bright cloud, and all the saints with Him. The Scriptures speak much of that day, and everything points us to that day. It will be glorious.
