The Sign of the Son of Man

Answers Concerning Prophecies and things future #29

The Sign of the Son of Man

When Jesus, in speaking of the Time of the End, said;

“Then shall appear the Sign of the Son of Man in Heaven” (Matt, xxiv. 30),

it is evident, from the context, he did not refer to any particular or isolated sign. For instance, while Matthew speaks of it as a “sign”, Luke writes of “signs”, in the same speech (Luke xxi. 11, 25); and Mark (xiii. 24-27) gives a further variation. The sign, or signs, include all that the Lord referred to, and which are detailed not only by Matthew, Mark, and Luke, but by Paul and Peter; and also, and especially, by Jesus himself in his last message (Rev. xvi.12-15)

“ And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the kindred’s of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man come in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.” (Mt 24:30 GenevaBible)

“ And great earthquakes shall be in diverse places, and hunger, and pestilence, and fearful things, and great signs shall there be from heaven.” (Lu 21:11 GenevaBible)

“ Then there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars, and upon the earth trouble among the nations with perplexity: the sea and the waters shall roar.” (Lu 21:25 GenevaBible)

“24  Moreover in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall wax dark, and ye moon shall not give her light, 25 And the stars of heaven shall fall: and the powers which are in heaven, shall shake. 26 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in ye clouds, with great power and glory. 27 And he shall then send his Angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, and from the utmost part of the earth to the utmost part of heaven.” (Mr 13:24-27 GenevaBible)

“12  And the sixth Angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates, and the water thereof dried up, that the way of the Kings of the East should be prepared. 13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of that dragon, and out of the mouth of that beast, and out of the mouth of that false prophet. 14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, to go unto the Kings of the earth, and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. 15 (Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and men see his filthiness)” (Re 16:12-15 GenevaBible)
