When Jesus returns, will God the Father be with Him?

Scripture: Matthew 26:64, Revelation 8:1
When Jesus returns, will God the Father be with Him? According to Jesus before the High Priest, they would see the Son of Man coming and 'sitting at the right hand of the Power'. Also, the book of Revelation speaks of their being 'silence in heaven' which seems to indicate God the Father will come with Jesus at the Second Coming.

Caller:  When Jesus comes, and He comes with all of his angels, I was wondering, does God the Father come with Him?  I’m wondering if there’s going to be two thrones or just how it works?

Pastor Doug:  Well, I believe that God the Father is coming with Christ because of that Scripture, I believe it’s Matthew 26:64:  And Jesus said to Caiaphas the High Priest, remember He said, I adjure you by the living God if Thou art the Christ, tell us if You’re the Son of God.  And Jesus said, ‘Thou hast said.  Nevertheless I say to you, hereafter you will see the Son of Man sitting on the right hand of Power and coming in the clouds of heaven’.  When He says He’s sitting on the right hand of Power, that’s an image of Jesus coming on the right hand of God the Father in the clouds of heaven.  And then, of course, you go to Revelation and it speaks in the prophecy there about silence in heaven for the space of half an hour and it’s in connection with Their coming to earth, and that would make me think that that’s when God the Father comes too. 

Caller:  Okay, okay.  I just don’t want to be fooled.  I want to know everything about it that I can.

Pastor Doug:  Yes, well, I think you’re on the right track.  We’ve had that question before and I’ve studied into it a little bit and I have every reason to believe that God the Father is coming with Christ to resurrect and rapture the saints and then we will go back as a glorious procession parade to heaven together.

Caller:  Okay.

Pastor Doug:  Alright?

Caller:  Thank you very much.
