    I saw Jesus in the clouds!

    I know this may sound silly, but there's no silliness with regards to God's power.

    I saw Jesus in the clouds about 2 nights ago. I was sitting outside, late at around 10pm, I was visiting a friend, I looked at the stars and the moon and saw some clouds,

    I kept looking at a certain set of clouds for some reason, about 2 minutes later the clouds formed into a shape. It was a face, with a mouth, eyes and shoulder length hair. I know I saw Jesus!

    It was very much the same as the following picture:

    .:::rejesus - expressions - unexpected faces:::.

    Except, unlike those people, I did not take a photo and analyze it for the face of Jesus, I actually saw His face, as large as the eye can see. The mouth turned into a smile, I became afraid and the clouds detached into normal clouds.

    I couldn't fall asleep that night, I was lying and watching the clouds through the window and I thanked God for showing me such a miracle!

    The following devotional is taken from rbc.org
    Do You See Jesus in Your Clouds?

    Behold, He is coming with clouds . . . —Revelation 1:7

    In the Bible clouds are always associated with God. Clouds are the sorrows, sufferings, or providential circumstances, within or without our personal lives, which actually seem to contradict the sovereignty of God. Yet it is through these very clouds that the Spirit of God is teaching us how to walk by faith. If there were never any clouds in our lives, we would have no faith. "The clouds are the dust of His feet" ( Nahum 1:3 ). They are a sign that God is there. What a revelation it is to know that sorrow, bereavement, and suffering are actually the clouds that come along with God! God cannot come near us without clouds— He does not come in clear-shining brightness.

    It is not true to say that God wants to teach us something in our trials. Through every cloud He brings our way, He wants us to unlearn something. His purpose in using the cloud is to simplify our beliefs until our relationship with Him is exactly like that of a child— a relationship simply between God and our own souls, and where other people are but shadows. Until other people become shadows to us, clouds and darkness will be ours every once in a while. Is our relationship with God becoming more simple than it has ever been?

    There is a connection between the strange providential circumstances allowed by God and what we know of Him, and we have to learn to interpret the mysteries of life in the light of our knowledge of God. Until we can come face to face with the deepest, darkest fact of life without damaging our view of God’s character, we do not yet know Him.

    ". . . they were fearful as they entered the cloud" (Luke 9:34). Is there anyone except Jesus in your cloud? If so, it will only get darker until you get to the place where there is "no one anymore, but only Jesus . . ." (Mark 9:8 ; also see Mark 2-7 ).
    God bless

    I was blessed sister Lady, the strange thing to me is that God decided to show Jesus to me, in a way I didn't imagine, I won't be able to draw His face, or even recognize it, since it was made of clouds, but I do know that He is coming soon and I will know Him when I see Him, because He will come with a loud shout, with the voice of an arch Angel.

    God bless you too sister
    Much love

    That was such a wonderful read teraside and so wonderful for you to experience and see.

    On two separate occasions, my husband and I had a very similar experience as you did, late in the evening.

    About 10 days ago, I went outside and asked my husband what he was doing, he said he was praising God and while doing so, this is what he told me. It was very cloudy this night, he looked up at the sky no stars could be seen. Suddenly out of nowhere and amongst the darkness, he saw a bright light and he saw the moon opening up to him. He said he also saw a face. Not like how you described though. Then within seconds, the clouds returned and you could not see the bright light or the moon again after that.

    I was in shock for a second and this is why.

    This happened to me too about 4 weeks ago, I didn't say anything to no one, because at the time I thought I imagined it. I had gone out to my car for my prayer time, it was around 9.30pm and I had just finished praying and while going back to the house, I looked up at the sky, it was dark. Suddenly, it was like a curtain opening up and this bright light appearing, I was just staring at it, not knowing what to think. Then the bright light dissappeared and the curtain closed again.

    It was only after when my husband had his experience, I realized what it was.

    So yes, God is wonderful, if we seek Him, He will be there. In fact you have got me all excited in my heart. :love:

    I have a certain set of beliefs, based on what I saw with my eyes. These may or may not be true and they have nothing to do with my Salvation, but I believe Angels are stars sister Word of Life.

    On many occassions, I have been outside, looking at the stars, especially so where I live, there are many stars to be seen. Science tells us that these are balls of gas, but I beg to differ.

    I saw a star about a year ago, it shone brightly, I looked at it in amazement and the star started to move, it was a swaying motion, left to right, right to left, the star moved towards me and I saw a head, hands and feet.

    This I believe was an Angel. The feet seemed to be giving of a light and the whole outlying shape was lights, little round lights. There are many forms of Angels noted in God's Word, but I believe Revelation can speak the truth here.

    Revelation 12:3-4
    3Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on his heads. 4His tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth.

    As we all know the story, Satan and one third of the Angels were cast out of heaven, I believe Revelation tells us that these Angels and all Angels are stars, watching over us each and every day, even at night.

    Heaven is right above us, we live on the footstool of God.

    God bless

    I have never really thought of the stars being angels, but yes, I was reading something recently and it didn't click at the time untill you just said it, that in one part of the universe there are no stars.

    4His tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth
    If I find that article I will post it here.

    God is everywhere all around us, it's a wonderful feeling.

    I have found some more verses dealing with stars in this context.

    Psalm 33:6
    By the word of the LORD were the heavens made, their starry host by the breath of his mouth.

    Psalm 147:4
    He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name.

    Psalm 148:3
    Praise him, sun and moon, praise him, all you shining stars

    Isaiah 14:12-15
    12 How you have fallen from heaven,
    O morning star, son of the dawn!
    You have been cast down to the earth,
    you who once laid low the nations!

    13 You said in your heart,
    "I will ascend to heaven;
    I will raise my throne
    above the stars of God;
    I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly,
    on the utmost heights of the sacred mountain.

    14 I will ascend above the tops of the clouds;
    I will make myself like the Most High."

    15 But you are brought down to the grave,
    to the depths of the pit.


    Obadiah 1:4
    Though you soar like the eagle
    and make your nest among the stars,
    from there I will bring you down,"
    declares the LORD

    Daniel 12:3
    Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever.

    Revelation 1:16
    In his right hand he held seven stars, and out of his mouth came a sharp double-edged sword. His face was like the sun shining in all its brilliance.

    Revelation 1:20
    The mystery of the seven stars that you saw in my right hand and of the seven golden lampstands is this: The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands are the seven churches.
    Revelation 1:19-20 (in Context) Revelation 1 (Whole Chapte

    Revelation 22:16
    "I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star."

    God bless

    I think I'm going to sleep in my car until I see His glorious face :) LOL. Seriously, this is truly awesome and I would love to see this. As a matter of fact, many times I've wondered if I've seen "something" in the sky, whether clouds or not. Just amazing I must say.

    Next time, should I feel I've witnessed a familiar shape (cross) or face (Jesus), I won't doubt my eyes at all.

    God bless, thanks for sharing this.
