I love clouds. God used clouds to connect directly with His people.
The cloud by day guided Moses’ people on their way to The Promised Land.
God spoke from the cloud, introducing Jesus.
“Then a cloud appeared and covered them, and a Voice came from the cloud: “This is My Son, Whom I love. Listen to Him!”
Jesus exited earth in His Bodily Form into the clouds.
“After He said this, He was taken up before their very eyes, and a cloud hid Him from their sight.”
We are promised that there is a great cloud of witnesses, who are watching over us.
“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith.”
Jesus will be revealed again to everyone, coming in the clouds.
“They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory.”
And we will join in the celebration in the clouds!
“For the Lord Himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.
“After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.”
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
Clouds prompt us to remember God’s Faithfulness and to anticipate The Joy of being with Him forever!
