7 Behold, He comes with clouds, and all eyes will see Him, even also those who pierced
Him: and all the tribes of the land will mourn concerning Him. Yes and Amen.

of heaven654 with great power and glory.
16 Because our Adon, with a command, and with the voice of the chief angel, and
with the trumpet of Eloah, will descend from heaven: and the dead who are in the
Messiah, will rise up first.

clouds, for the meeting of our Adon in the air, and thus we will always be with our Adon.
And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Yerushalayim,
the spirit of grace and of supplication. And they shall look unto Me, whom they pierced
through, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourns for his only son: and shall be in
bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.
