When the Son of Man comes in His glory!

(Octavius Winslow, "Evening Thoughts")

"When the Son of Man comes in His glory,
 and all the angels with Him, then He will
 sit upon His glorious throne." Matthew 25:31

Surpassing in glory all that the eye has ever
seen, or the imagination has ever conceived,
will be the second personal appearing of the
Son of God.

A perfect contrast will it present to His first
advent. Then He appeared a king, but . . .
  disguised in the form of a servant,
  without a retinue,
  without the insignia of royalty,
  without visible glory,
  His throne a cross,
  His crown the thorns,
  His scepter a reed.

But His second coming will be in perfect
contrast with this. He will now have thrown
off the garment of humiliation, and will
appear clad with the robe of majesty, the
King acknowledged and adored.

He will come in the glory of His Divine nature.
His Deity will now be unveiled, unclouded, and
undenied, the "God over all, blessed for evermore!"

Angels will laud Him.
Saints will crown Him.
Devils fear Him.
His enemies will bow to Him.
Every tongue shall confess His Deity.

"When the Son of Man comes in His glory,
 and all the angels with Him, then He will
 sit upon His glorious throne." Matthew 25:31
