"And every eye shall see him; and they who pierced him..."

We read where the Angel told the Apostles the following after Christ ascended into heaven:

"Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven." (Acts 1:11)

He will come again.  The Joseph Smith Translation of Revelations says about that day:

"For behold, he cometh in the clouds with ten thousands of his saints in the kingdom, clothed with the glory of his Father. And every eye shall see him; and they who pierced him, and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him...

For he saith, I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, the Lord, who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty." (JST Revelation 1:7-8)

May we ever prepare for that day, so that when it comes, we will feel as the primary song says:

I wonder, when he comes again,
Will I be ready there
To look upon his loving face
And join with him in prayer?
Each day I'll try to do his will
And let my light so shine
That others seeing me may seek
For greater light divine.
Then, when that blessed day is here,
He'll love me and he'll say,
"You've served me well, my little child;
Come unto my arms to stay." (When he comes again, Primary songbook)

May we ever return to his loving arms, is my prayer.
