The phrase "Every eye will see Him" comes out of the following passage, specifically verse 7.  Let's see the context in which it is said:

Revelation 1:1-10 (ESV)

The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show to his servants THE THINGS THAT MUST SOON TAKE PLACE. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John, who bore witness to the word of God and to the testimony of Jesus Christ, even to all that he saw. Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear, and who keep what is written in it, FOR THE TIME IS NEAR.

Grace to you and peace from him who is and who was and WHO IS TO COME, and from the seven spirits who are before his throne, and from Jesus Christ the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of kings on earth.
To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood and made us a kingdom, priests to his God and Father, to him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. BEHOLD, HE IS COMING WITH THE CLOUDS, and EVERY EYE WILL SEE HIM, EVEN THOSE WHO PIERCED HIM, and all tribes of the earth (Ge which means land) will wail on account of him. Even so. Amen.

“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is and who was and WHO IS TO COME, the Almighty.”

I, John, your brother and partner IN THE TRIBULATION and the kingdom and the patient endurance that are in Jesus, was on the island called Patmos on account of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus. 10 I was in the Spirit on THE LORD'S DAY, and I heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpet  

Let's provide some CONTEXT in which the words "EVERY EYE WILL SEE HIM" are used.

Verse 1 Tells the 1st century Christians that “the things must soon take place” TO THEM, his servants.

Verse 3 Tells the 1st century Christians that “the time is near” for “the things must soon take place” TO THEM TO HAPPEN.

Verse 4 Tells who the book of Revelation was written TO and it’s not you in 21st century but the 7 churches that were in Asia in the 1st century.  The Bible was NOT written TO you but FOR you.  It was written to certain people and churches like Timothy, Titus, the church in Rome, Galatia, Corinth….

Verse 9  John says that he is partner with the 7 churches in Asia "IN THE TRIBULATION."  see my article "The Great Tribulation happened already"

Verse 10 "THE LORD'S DAY" is NOT Sunday as many supposed scholars claim but it is YHWH's day of Judgment upon Jerusalem.  There are numerous lord's days or "day of the lords" in Scripture.  see my article "The Day of The Lord"

Verse 7  Throughout Scripture “The Coming of The Lord” of “The Lord Coming on the Clouds” is an apocalyptic description of YHWH coming in Judgment.  see my article "Coming on the Clouds."  Apocalyptic language is highly figurative symbolic exaggerated language and is NOT to be taken LITERALLY but Biblically and according to the literature or genre.  Christ even promises to return in that first century generation.  In fact, at the end of Revelation, Christ says several times that He is COMING SOON.  And remember, Revelation was written TO the 7 churches in Asia.

**Those who pierced Christ would see The Lord coming with the clouds just like Christ states in Matt. 26:64  Those who pierced Christ were the apostate Jews.  Acts 2:23, 36, 4:10. 

Matthew 26:63-66  (ESV); Mark 14:61-63; 
63 But Jesus remained silent. And the high priest said to him, “I adjure you by the living God, tell us if you are the Christ, the Son of God.” 64 Jesus said to him, “You have said so. But I tell you, from now on YOU WILL SEE THE SON OF MAN SEATED AT THE RIGHT HAND OF POWER AND COMING ON THE CLOUDS OF HEAVEN.” 65 Then the high priest tore his robes and said, “He has uttered blasphemy. What further witnesses do we need? You have now heard his blasphemy. 66 What is your judgment?”They answered, “He deserves death.”

**Christ tells the high priest that he would see the Son of Man seated at the right hand of Power and coming on the clouds of heaven.  Only God comes on the clouds of heaven.  Christ was basically saying that He is God.  This is why the high priest and Sanhedrin wanted to kill him.  They would SEE (or understand, comprehend, perceive) that The Son of Man was seated at the right hand of Power and Coming on the clouds of heaven in the DESTRUCTION of Jerusalem.  see Rev. 1:7  The high priest seeing this, sticks Christ's return in the 1st century "this generation."


Acts 2:23 this Jesus, delivered up according to the definite plan and foreknowledge of God, YOU CRUCIFIED AND KILLED by the hands of lawless men.

Acts 2:36  Let all the house of Israel therefore know for certain that God has made him both Lord and Christ, THIS JESUS WHOM YOU CRUCIFIED.”

Acts 4:10 let it be known to all of you and to all the people of Israel that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, WHOM YOU CRUCIFIED, whom God raised from the dead—by him this man is standing before you well.

The New Testament is about THE LAST DAYS of Old Covenant Israel and the bringing in of the AGE TO COME.  The destruction of Jerusalem or the Old Covenant or the Old Heaven and Earth meant YHWH brought in a NEW JERUSALEM, New Covenant, New Heaven and earth.  The Judgment upon Jerusalem symbolized YHWH’s covenant with Israel, The Law, The Priesthood, The Sacrificial system, was FINISHED.
EVERY eye of the 1st century Jews saw YESHUA COMING ON THE CLOUDS to judge Jerusalem by Christ using His servants, The Roman Armies to destroy Jerusalem.  Even Yeshua said the Jews would be judged in that 1st century generation:

Matthew 23:29-36 “Woe to YOU, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For YOU build the tombs of the prophets and decorate the monuments of the righteous, 30 saying, ‘If we had lived in the days of our fathers, we would not have taken part with them in shedding the blood of the prophets.’ 31 Thus YOU witness against yourselves that YOU are sons of those who murdered the prophets. 32 Fill up, then, the measure of your fathers. 33 YOU serpents, YOU brood of vipers, how are YOU to escape being sentenced to hell? 34 Therefore I send YOU prophets and wise men and scribes, some of whom YOU will kill and crucify, and some YOU will flog in your synagogues and persecute from town to town, 35 so that on YOU may come all the righteous blood shed on earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah the son of Barachiah, whom YOU murdered between the sanctuary and the altar. 36 Truly, I say to YOU, ALL THESE THINGS WILL COME UPON THIS GENERATION. 

**The Kingdom of God is perceived spiritually and does not come with observation (Luke 17:20).  It came in power and great glory before the last of Christ’s disciples died and at the destruction of Jerusalem and its temple.

Matthew 16:27-28 For the Son of Man is going to come with his angels in the glory of his Father, and then he will repay each person according to what he has done. 28 Truly, I say to you, there are some standing here who will not taste death until they SEE THE SON OF MAN COMING IN HIS KINGDOM.”

***Yeshua said that some of His disciples would still be alive to SEE the Son of Man coming in His Kingdom.  Either it happen of Yeshua is a liar!  No worries, Christ is not a liar like most futurists Christians make Him.  He returned and some of them saw Him coming in His Kingdom.  see John 21:20-23.

***“COMING ON THE CLOUDS OF HEAVEN” is an apocalyptic description of God’s judgment, presence, glory.  The judgment upon Jerusalem was CHRIST APPEARING A SECOND TIME.  See Heb 9:28   Those in Christ experience His presence NOW!  see my other article "Cloud Comings in the Bible."

Matthew 24:30  Then will appear in heaven the sign of the Son of Man, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will SEE THE SON OF MAN COMING ON THE CLOUDS OF HEAVEN with power and great glory.

**The above event, along with everything from v4-33 were to happen in that 1st century "this generation" that Christ spoke of in Matt 24:34 "Truly, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place."
Matthew 26:64  Jesus said to him (the high priest), “You have said so. But I tell you, from now on you will SEE THE SON OF MAN seated at the right hand of Power and COMING ON THE CLOUDS OF HEAVEN.”

Mark 9:1  And he said to them, “Truly, I say to you, there are some standing here who will not taste death until they SEE THE KINGDOM OF GOD after it has come with power.”

Mark 13:26  And then they will SEE THE SON OF MAN COMING IN CLOUDS with great power and glory.

Mark 14:62  And Jesus said, “I am, and you will SEE THE SON OF MAN seated at the right hand of Power, and COMING WITH THE CLOUDS OF HEAVEN.”

Luke 9:27  But I tell you truly, there are some standing here who will not taste death until they SEE THE KINGDOM OF GOD.”

Luke 21:27  And then they will SEE THE SON OF MAN COMING IN A CLOUD with power and great glory.

***The saints and the aints (apostate jews) saw The Son of Man Coming in the clouds of heaven with great glory and power to judge apostate Israel.  The sign that Christ was in heaven, vindicated as The Messiah, God, was Jerusalem destroyed.


***Christ is coming with the clouds.
***Every eye will SEE Him, even those who pierced Him.  Who pierced Yeshua?   The apostate Jews crucified Christ.  Acts 2:23, 36, 4:10.
***Do you noticed how this event is tied in with Matt 24:30 where all the tribes of the earth (or land) wail or mourn?  Well, this Matt 24:30 happened in that 1st century "this generation" as Yeshua said.  Therefore, this Revelation passage, being the same subject happened.  Plus, the things within the book of Revelation are said to be near, coming soon, at hand, shortly come to pass... see my article on "The Time statements within the book of Revelation."
