Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Matthew 24:30


24:30 Then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven - It seems a little before he himself descends. The sun, moon, and stars being extinguished, (probably not those of our system only,) the sign of the Son of man (perhaps the cross) will appear in the glory of the Lord.

Discussion for Matthew 24:30

  • Bernard McCarthy for verse 30
    Why do most people think this statement about the "Son of Man" means some sort of "Retribution?. It is not! It is a confirmation of God's love for us, in that He will send a vision of His son to Earth again, in the clouds, which all mankind will be able to witness and recognise, no matter their religion! Each will see their perfect "Son of Man". And rejoice together knowing that their God loves them! Amen.

    Cloud?
    Cloud computing means using multiple server computers via a digital network, as though they were one computer

    The term "cloud" is used as a metaphor for the Internet, based on the cloud drawing used in the past to represent the telephone network, and later to depict the Internet in computer network diagrams as an abstraction of the underlying infrastructure it represents.
