until they see the SON OF MAN coming in His kingdom.


Listen to me because this will be important for you to remember: I need to tell you that there are some who are present here who, I assure you, will not experience death until they see GOD’S ANSWER TO MAN’S PROBLEM

come forth as the ruler of His kingdom.



The word is indeed “standing,” but the important thing was not the position of their bodies, rather that they were present there with Him at that time.
