    Matt 26:64 Jesus said unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Henceforth ye shall see the Son of man sitting at the right hand of Power, and coming on the clouds of heaven.
    I saw this post in the BT&BS forum and wondered why modern versions say, "coming on the clouds of heaven," and the KJB says, "coming in the clouds of heaven?"

    Epi with the genitive (ton nephalov) means "on" more than "in." In would be a wierd translation. But the reality is that there is not much difference.

    It's rather obvious to those of us who know, Jesus in His countenance is brighter than the noonday sun, so no matter how thick or dark the clouds at His Coming, whether in the clouds or on a cloud, there'll be no mistaking it is Him! :cool: (Those are "Son" glasses, not sun glasses)

    Also, it is observed when Jesus does come in Glory and splendor, it is assuredly a very dark time in man's history, but in the child of God's time the promise of a bright future, but of the seasons and times it is not revealed.

    I do know when Jesus is Coming though, you want to know when?

    Just the other day while I was catching part of a program, the speaker was telling how it sez in Rev 13:16-'a mark will be received ON his right hand or ON his forehead...but in my Bible it sez "IN".

    Actually, I'm in agreement w/ this. "In" or "on", every eye shall see Him! (Hey, I was just being silly in the previous post!) :eek:

    no, the humour was directed at whomever wrote '"why modern versions say, "coming on the clouds of heaven," and the KJB says, "coming in the clouds of heaven?"' in the 1st place.

    "And EVERY EYE shall see Him." There's a supernatural aspect right there. Most people are indoors much of the time, and when they see the sun or moon on one part of the earth, the other side doesn't see them. But Jesus doesn't differentiate between sides of the earth. What eye does "every eye" exclude?

    As for the mark of the beast-"IN" seems more likely, as this "mark" most likely will be some kind of computer chip implanted under the skin.

    Anybody consider this to simply be a metaphor, and move on?
