On There's a Man Going 'Round Taking Names: The Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory

Blogged about
Huddie Ledbetter, a.k.a. Lead Belly

Coach Charles was asked to get the names of the kids who came out for the football practice on Saturday. As I saw him walking around, I thought of a song on an album I had back in the 60's by Huddie Ledbetter and the title song to an album I discovered 10 years ago by Johnny Cash.

The phrase "There's a man going around taking names" recalls the the song of that name popularized by folk singer Lead Belly.

What should we make of the idea of the Second Coming of Christ? -gw

It is said in the Holy Books that Christ will come again, and that His coming depends upon the fulfillment of certain signs: when He comes, it will be with these signs. For example, “The sun will be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven…. And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.” Bahá’u’lláh has explained these verses in the Kitáb-i-Íqán.
