Question from Samoa about Jesus Coming in His Kingdom


Just wondering if you can comment on these two verses. One says Jesus is coming in His kingdom, and the other the kingdom coming with power (Matthew 16:28 and Mark 9:1).


Also parallel is Luke 9:28. Each is a reference to Pentecost (Acts 2:1-4). His coming was not literal but representative, through the Holy Spirit, whom He sent to take His place (John 15:26; 16:13-15). He promised His apostles, “I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you” (John 14:18). He did come to them (Acts 3:26), through the person of the Holy Spirit, whom He sent to take His place with them (John 14:16-17, 26; 16:7).
