Revelation 1:4-8. Jesus coming back: descending in the clouds.
The next two verses cover the return and eternal being [eternity] of Jesus – Revelation 1:7-8.
The same way he went to heaven, as in Acts 1:9-11 and Luke 24:50-53, He will be coming back.
Jesus went back to heaven so He could send the Holy Spirit who would help us.
The Holy Spirit is a person and is the third person of the Trinity.
Jesus coming back: descending from the clouds
1:4 From John to the seven churches in Asia. May grace and peace be yours from the one who is, who was, and who is coming, from the seven spirits who are in front of his throne, 5 and from Jesus the Messiah, the witness, the faithful one, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth. To the one who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood 6 and has made us a kingdom, priests for his God and Father, be glory and power forever and ever! Amen.
7 Look! He is coming in the clouds.
Every eye will see him,
even those who pierced him,
and all the tribes of the earth will mourn
because of him.
So be it! Amen.
8 “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” declares the Lord God, “the one who is, who was, and who is coming, the Almighty.”
