When The LORD Comes To Visit

"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"

The English-language word "visit" originated from the ancient Latin word video (the "modern" word video is actually very old) that meant to see ("visible" originated from the same Latin word). The literal meaning is made obvious from how people today will say either "I'm going to visit them" or "I'm going to see them."

The Hebrew and Greek words of the Holy Scriptures also use visit and see in the same manner. An example from the apostles Paul and Barnabas (see also The Meeting Of Paul And Barnabas and The Ministry Of Paul And Barnabas):

"15:36 And some days after Paul said unto Barnabas, Let us go again and visit our brethren in every city where we have preached the word of the Lord, and see how they do." (Acts 15:36 KJV)

Clouds

The most spectacular "visit" by the LORD (see also John's Eyewitness Of The Messiah And The LORD God and A Biography Of Jesus Christ: The LORD God Of Creation), up to the present time, was when the Israelites saw His Presence descend upon Mount Sinai (see also The Prophecy Of Mount Sinai In Arabia).

"19:16 And it came to pass on the third day in the morning, that there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mount, and the voice of the trumpet exceeding loud; so that all the people that was in the camp trembled.

19:17 And Moses brought forth the people out of the camp to meet with God; and they stood at the nether part of the mount. 19:18 And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the LORD descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly. 19:19 And when the voice of the trumpet sounded long, and waxed louder and louder, Moses spake, and God answered him by a voice.

19:20 And the LORD came down upon mount Sinai, on the top of the mount: and the LORD called Moses up to the top of the mount; and Moses went up." (Exodus 19:16-20 KJV)

The LORD's Return (see A Biography Of Jesus Christ: The Return Of The Messiah) is going to be even more spectacular - everyone on Earth will witness His "visit."

"1:7 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." (Revelation 1:7 KJV)

Unfortunately, for them, defiant, rebel-minded humanity as a whole are not going to welcome the Creator's Return to His Earth (see the Fact Finder question below).

"19:11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. 19:12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. 19:13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. 19:14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. 19:15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. 19:16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written,

KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

19:17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; 19:18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.

19:19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. 19:20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. 19:21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh." (Revelation 19:11-21 KJV)

This Day In History, March 27

196 BC: Ptolemy V became king of Egypt (see A History Of Jerusalem: Greeks, Ptolemies, Seleucids and The Cleopatra Connection).

1512: Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Leon arrived at Florida (see also Thanksgiving In History and Prophecy).

1536: Swiss Protestants in Strassbourg and Constance signed the First Helvetic Confession.

1613: The first English child born in Canada - at Cuper's Cove, Newfoundland.

1625: King James I, the first king to rule both England and Scotland, died. The King James Bible was named after him. He was succeeded by Charles I.

King James

1802: The Treaty of Amiens was signed in France by Britain, France, Spain and the Batavian Republic, achieving a complete peace in Europe for 14 months during the Napoleonic Wars.

1854: The United Kingdom declared war on Russia, beginning the Crimean War.

1886: In an attempt to stop the genocide of the native-American people, the Apache warrior Geronimo surrendered to the U.S. Army during the "Indian Wars" (see also The First Chinese American War).
When the first settlers came to North America, they referred to the native people as "the Americans." It was only over a century later that they began using the term for themselves - while referring to the native Americans as "Indians" (an erroneous term originated by early explorers who mistakenly thought that they had landed in India).

Geronimo

1910: Archaeological digging near the Temple Mount by Captain Montague Parker (he was searching for items from the Second Temple; see also The Temple Vessel Prophecies Today) set off turmoil from both Muslims and Jews (see A History Of Jerusalem: Constantine and Muhammad and A History Of Jerusalem: Zionism).
Many Jews and Christians believe that despite the destruction of The Temple, the Ark Of The Covenant is safely hidden in a secret tunnel somewhere under the Temple Mount (see A History Of Jerusalem: The Temple Of The LORD). In 1995, another archaeologist noted how the massive stones from the Herodian Temple had been hurled down and smashed onto the street far below, exactly as Jesus Christ said would happen (see What Did Jesus Christ Say About Those Stones?).

1915: Mary Mallon, commonly known as "Typhoid Mary," the first healthy carrier of disease ever identified in the U.S., was forced into quarantine where she remained for the rest of her life.

1923: Scottish chemist and physicist Sir James Dewar, who invented the thermos flask and cordite (a smokeless gunpowder), died.

1945: Nazi Germany launched its last V2 rocket, from the Hague in the Netherlands, crashing in Orpington, southeast of London.
A key developer of Hitler's rockets was the Nazi scientist Wernher von Braun. Immediately after the war ended in 1945, rocket-specialist von Braun was hustled out of Germany, where he may have faced a war crimes trial along with the others, and declared to a "reformed Nazi" - although many at NASA, where von Braun worked on U.S. rockets, preferred the term "the NASA Nazi" for him - as did Jews who survived the Holocaust.

Wernher von Braun

1958: Nikita Khrushchev became the leader of the Soviet Union.

1964: The most powerful earthquake on record for North America occurred at Anchorage, Alaska. It measured 8.3 on the Richter Scale.

1968: Yuri Gagarin, 34, Soviet cosmonaut, the first human in space, was killed in a training flight.

The U.S. often sought to overshadow important dates of Russia's pioneer space accomplishments by choosing specific "cover up" dates whenever possible - there are too many for it to have been mere coincidence. Examples: the first U.S. space shuttle launch was deliberately chosen to be on the same date as Russia's putting Yuri Gagarin, the first man in space, 20 years earlier and Sally Ride was made the first U.S. woman in space on June 18, 1983 - exactly 20 years to the day after the Russian cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova became the first woman in space on June 16-19 1963.

"3:27 Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do it." (Proverbs 3:27 KJV)

Cosmonauts

1977: The worst aviation accident in history killed 582 people in the Canary Islands when two 747 airliners collided on the runway.

1980: Mount St. Helens in Washington state became active after 123 years of inactivity.

1996: Yigal Amir received a life sentence for assassinating Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin in November 1995 (see also Jews - Three Tribes and Three Meanings).
