EMERGENCY READ: Does God really appear in the sky in the form of clouds?

Of course God appears in the sky in the form of clouds! He created the sky and the clouds.

If you created something, you would show up there too, being the vainglorious human that you are. But God is not vainglorious, He is the proven Creator of the cool breeze, the clouds, moon, the sun and stars, etc. His presence is everywhere.

Here is a partial listing of Holy Bible verses that prove Jesus appears in the clouds:

“Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen” (Revelation 1:7).

When the Lord appears in the clouds, His presence is massive. Imagine a set of eyes in the sky that can be seen across the whole city, state, nation or world. The Lord can easily show face in this manner, and many believe He has on numerous occasions.

"And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory" (Mark 13:26).

While the word Shekhinah is not found in the Holy Bible, the "glorious" presence of the Lord is known as the Shekhinah light which is seated at the right hand of God. The Old Testament describes places where the presence of God was felt and experienced as a Shekhinah, an immensely shining light, including the burning bush and the cloud that settled on Mount Sinai.

The burning bush is the location where Moses was appointed by Yahweh to lead the Israelites out of Egypt to the Promised Land of Canaan (Israel) (Exodus 3).

Mount Sinai is the mountain where the 10 Commandments were given to Moses by God:

"And the Lord said unto Moses, Lo, I come unto thee in a thick cloud, that the people may hear when I speak with thee, and believe thee for ever. And Moses told the words of the people unto the Lord" (Exodus 19:9, KJV).

The Shekhinah is also depicted as a cloud, a pillar of fire called the Glory of God that led the children of Israel out of Egypt. It was present in the Ark of the Covenant, the Tabernacle and the Temple.

Jesus referred to Himself as The Light of the World. When He shows up in the clouds, His glory will light us up as bright as human eyes can stand it without being blinded.

"Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name JAH, and rejoice before him" (Psalms 68:4).

"And Jesus said, I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven" (Mark 14:62).

"And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle" (Revelation 14:14).

"Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters: who maketh the clouds his chariot: who walketh upon the wings of the wind" (Psalms 104:3).

"And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight" (Acts 1:9).

"Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them" (Jeremiah 10:2).

"And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory" (Matthew 24:30).

In recent years, there have been several sightings of the LORD'S presence in the clouds. Hoax photos or not, the LORD obviously can, does and will appear in the clouds.
