Many believers in the Lord have read the following biblical prophecy: “They shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory” (Matthew 24:30). They believe that when the Lord returns, He will certainly descend on a cloud, but there are other prophecies inthat say: “Behold, I come as a thief” (Revelation 16:15). “And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom comes; go you out to meet him” (Matthew 25:6). It is clear that there are prophecies that the Lord will come in secret in addition to the prophecy that He will openly come down on a cloud. So what is the truth about His return?
