Behold! He comes with clouds descending,
Every eye shall see Him, unending.
Even those who pierced Him shall mourn,
For their deeds, they shall deeply scorn.
The Alpha and Omega, God proclaims,
Who is, who was, who still remains,
The Almighty, forevermore,
His power and glory we adore.
Let all the earth, with one accord,
Praise Him, our Savior and our Lord.
For He who comes with clouds descending,
Is the King of kings, unending.
So let us bow before His throne,
And make His mercy and grace known.
For He is the Alpha and Omega,
Our God, our Savior, and our Redeemer.
Revelation 1:7-8 is a powerful passage that speaks to the second coming of Jesus Christ. It is a reminder to believers that, no matter what happens in this life, we have a hope that transcends this world. We know that Jesus is coming back, and when He does, every eye will see Him.
The passage begins with the phrase “Behold, He cometh with clouds.” This is a reference to the second coming of Jesus Christ.
The clouds represent the glory of God and the power and majesty of Christ. When Jesus returns, He will come in glory and power, and every eye will see Him.
The second part of the passage says, “and every eye shall see Him, and they also which pierced Him.” This is a reference to the fact that even those who rejected Jesus and crucified Him will see Him when He returns.
This is a reminder that no one can escape the judgment of God. Those who rejected Jesus will be held accountable for their actions.
The passage goes on to say, “and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of Him.” This is a reference to the fact that when Jesus returns, there will be great mourning and weeping.
Those who rejected Jesus will realize their mistake and will mourn their lost opportunity to accept Him as their Savior.
The passage concludes with the words, “Even so, Amen. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.”
This is a powerful statement that reminds us that Jesus is the beginning and the end. He is the Alpha and Omega, the first and the last. He is the Lord of all, and He is coming back to judge the living and the dead.
As believers, this passage should give us hope and confidence. We know that Jesus is coming back, and when He does, He will set everything right.
He will judge the wicked and reward the righteous. We have a hope that transcends this world because we know that our Savior is coming back.
But this passage should also be a warning to those who have not yet accepted Jesus as their Savior. It is a reminder that there will be a day of judgment, and those who reject Jesus will be held accountable for their actions.
This is a sobering thought, but it is also a call to action. We must share the gospel with those who do not know Jesus, so that they too may have the hope of eternal life.
