Once again, Christ is claiming divine nature and divine sovereignty. He is not speaking of a literal bodily return. First, the Old Covenant backgound as applied by Jesus in Matthew 24 to the destruction of Jerusalem. Second, the coming in the clouds as an identifying factor. The one coming in the clouds was to be associated with sovereignty, majesty, and judgment. A literal coming was not envisioned. Thirdly, the emphatic time limitations of the text. Jesus returned to His pre-Son of Man Glory, Jesus is a Spirit now. John 17:5. Afterall, when we are raised up to Heaven, we wont be flesh and blood, we will be like the angels. 1 Corinthians 15:50, Matthew 22:30, Revelation 6:9-11, and Revelation 20:4. We will be souls. Jesus is coming in the Glory of the Father. Matthew 16:27. The Father is a Spirit. You're taking Jesus` declaration of divine sovereignty way too literally. Do you truly honestly believe we will go into heaven as souls, as transformed angelic beings, but Christ will remain flesh and blood? That Christ will still be a man, a substance of flesh, and everyone else will be of celestial substance?????
