In Matthew 24 it says, “Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.”
Jesus used lightning to describe what His return would be like. During a storm, the entire sky lights up with each lightning bolt. The sight can cause fear or awe, but the lightening is hard to miss no matter what your personal reaction to it. Before Jesus returns, many people will claim that He is in the “wilderness” or “inner room.” Just like a storm, however, when Jesus makes His entrance, there will be no need to state the obvious.
All people will see Jesus when He comes. There will be trumpets sounding and angels will be sent to gather the elect. The Son of Man will come in all His glory and power. It will be a glorious sight, but it will also be a terrifying sight. The world as it is known today will pass away, and the Son of Man will have the final say.
