Acts 1
9 Now when He had spoken these things, while they watched, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight. 10 And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel, 11 who also said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven.”

Only a few men of Galilee saw him leave so how is it that on the return its going to be so globally obvious if its in like manner?
Good point gwynedd1...

My comment was based on Psalm 97...multitude of isles and all eyes (7 continents?). Acts 1:9 do raise a profound consideration.

However, we or I won't know until the time when evil ceases to deceive God's people (US) per Revelation 21:1-27.

Blessings...

Is it " she"? SHE is right on the 10 horns.. Probably includes Israel.

These are the lands and kingdoms of the ten menaced( Menes)/ Mizraim / thus usurped nations and beheaded and betrayed "Great Kings" ( moche call these the 10 Sitting Gods/ AKA baal ( means owners or really husbands of THE owners ). Because the women / and womens clans were the owners.. ) and those 10 kingdoms that are found on Narmers( Menes)/in egyptian "MN" ) Palette WHICH IS HIS OR HIS SONS RECORD OF THE EVENT IN TYRE .
This is Jobs family mixed with sons of Javan/ JAPAN and japheth FAMILIES .. OF SEA PEOPLE .
THESE Trading kingdoms arms reached world wide until joshua's long day aka bronze age collapse and
the "old world" stopped getting
"new world" copper. And sea levels dropped about 1000-1200 ft , This happened about time, times and a half time ago.. or about 3500 years.. .. But that tree with those arms had roots in the middleast and in Jobs righteous family OF GOD FEARING PEOPLE .
But then AFTER THE BEHEADINGS THERe WAS THE
mengewi and allegewi wars that went world wide. you can find those stories wars everywhere in al island peoples stories .

Then sea people were usurped and then mixed with Canaanites and Mizraim/MN after Menegewi won the wars.. they were not so righteous and very bloodthirst families!

Especially Egypt and this is why God grew up Hebrews in Egypt .. To walk out with everything that was stolen by them . Then to take back the 3 kingdoms/ mountains that they and Canaanites stole from the three of Jobs daughters who inherited great wealth and lands with their brothers..
And that is why Jews and sea people were at one time matrilineal ( a form of inheritance on the mother clan lines, and it is not about bossy or manly women ) but a form of inheritance which follows mothers line not fathers.. And power is more shared between and mother and her son and it moves to her daughter then the daughter's sons. So it was mothers to son not women to husbands.. The queen of sheba was a queen of one such society.
This is the roots of all matrilineal societies worldwide especially in islands peoples and trading peoples.
When then as seen on Namers palette . That little captive girl.. Is who we now call Zion.. she is called "Ali-cione" she was the mother of 6 daughters.. the story In the stars.. Egypt controlled those women bloodlines and those direct lines of inheritance as seen on the Narmers Palette and thus controlled all their lands and trading networks and trade goods and thus demanding worldwide tribute/tax.
Until Joshua's long day and "the Re-waters"..
God has been trying to right that wrong for nearly 3500>4000 years now ..
and He will do that ! one reason is his personal " inheritance" is dependant on it..

the 7 kings most likely are the 7 brothers kingdoms where were also menaced/Menes .. who still fight each other to this day and trying to dominate the others.. and who are still in the middle east.

If we notice what Scripture says about 'antichrist ' we can see that anyone who is against Christ is antichrist.
So, there is No one particular person as per 1st John 2:18,22; 4:3; 2nd John verse 7.
All beast-like governments comprise being the beast, so that even goes back further than papal Rome.
Since judgement starts with the religious ' House of God ' then Christendom ( apostate Christianity ) will be the first to go as per 1st Peter 4:17. A new broom sweeps clean. Jesus as that figurative new broom will sweep clean all false religious practices before Jesus, as Prince of Peace, ushers in global international Peace on Earth among persons of goodwill.

I can agree that we should should be in fear. Not afraid or fright, but a healthy fear of displeasing God.
Just as a loving child would ' fear ' disrespecting a loving parent.
So, we are to have a ' reverential fear ' of displeasing God.
That type of fear is really love. Love as mentioned at 1st John 4:18.
That type of love is the love as per John 15:13; John 13:34-35 to have the same type of ' self-sacrificing love ' for others as Jesus has.

amen and amen.. Yes fear sure can be true love.. And it can be wisdom.
it seems the difference is how the fool or the wise react to that fear or any fear .

Do you believe a loving parent would kill their child if they were disappointed in him/her? Yet while you recognize that killing a child would be unjustifiable evil from a "mortal," you would still embrace a murderous god who would do the exact same thing?

When a healthy relationship exists between parent and child the outcome is Trust. And even though the child might break the trust she has of her father, He doesn't break His covenant relationship with His child.

The Bible is replete with examples. In Hosea God commands His prophet to marry a prostitute, knowing she will cheat on him. He marries her and she does, running away. God tells Hosea to go after her and bring her back anyway!

In Psalm 89 the author uses the first half of his poem to outline for God all the promises He made to David and Israel. In the second half, he, in so many words, informs God that He is a liar. David's line has disappeared, there is no longer a Temple, and God failed to deliver.

Now if one "fears" God they would never be so bold as to call Him a liar. BUT, if there is mutual trust between writer and the Almighty, then the writer need not fear, because his loving Father rejoices despite the child's disappointment.

What we are in need of, is more Christians with the guts to talk to God without fear, but in trust that God loves us regardless. The honesty might give God a heart attack. I'm sure He's more than a little disgusted with children who whisper sweet nothings in His ear in hopes that He won't see the brutality we practice toward others in His name.
