Jesus Himself defines His second coming to His disciples. He will come: 1) after the tribulation, 2) when both
day and night is dark, 3) on the clouds, 4) with power and glory, 5) a trumpet sounds, and 6) His angels will
gather Believers on earth and in heaven. Because the apostle John is recording Jesus' second coming from a
heavenly perspective (Rev 14:1-20), he records all of the above heavenly
elements except the earthly phenomena when both day and night are dark.
"But immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the
moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.
And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and
they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky with power and great glory. And He will send
forth His angels with a great trumpet and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end
of the sky to the other." (Matt 24:29-31)
"But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun will be darkened and the moon will
not give its light, and the stars will be falling from heaven, and the powers that are in the heavens will be
shaken. Then they will see the Son of Man coming in clouds with great power and glory. And then He will
send forth the angels, and will gather together His elect from the four winds, from the farthest end of the earth
to the farthest end of heaven." (Mark 13:24-27)
"There will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth dismay among nations,
in perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the waves, men fainting from fear and the expectation of the things
which are coming upon the world; for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then they will see the Son of
Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. But when these things begin to take place, straighten up
and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near."
