Has The Coming Of The "Son Of Man" Already happened?

"For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.
Verily I say unto you, There be "some standing here", which shall not taste of death*, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom." Matt 16:27-28
... So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, "This generation" shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled." Matt: 24:30-34
Doesn't, "some standing here, this generation" mean he has already returned during those times?
Yes, he has already came, fulfilled prophecy, crucified, and has risen from the dead to join his father (God) in Heaven. The verses you are talking about refer to the second coming of Christ. This is when he will come to get his children (those who have accepted him) to take them home before the great tribulation.
If he actually does come, I think a lot of people will be disappointed that they won't be going to heaven.
If it's filled with people such as yourself, can't say I am.
What are you talking about? You speak in riddles.
Its pretty basic English actually. If you don't understand it, sounds like it might be a personal problem. I would suggest lessons.
Good for you JT. Since everyone who has said that to me has been religious and hasn't managed to say it in a non condescending way, can't really say I take that seriously. Have a cookie.
if we read the last chapter of John and of Luke, we see Jesus eating and interacting with "some standing here" from Matthew 16. He was alive, resurrected and now the Kingdom of God has come and some of them saw Him come in His Kingdom which He has brought to earth and as His true disciples were possessors of the kingdom of God. .
Matthew 24 is talking about the return of Christ and does not mention the kingdom which is already here, but the coming (2nd) of Christ to be with His saints on the earth.
also see Luke 17:21

The Rapture has already happened & you are left behind in purgatory limbo - fighting the risen dead(zombies) and the only escape into heaven is to sacrifice yourself for another - would you die for a stranger to go to heaven - or be too scared to be be turned into a zombie to only help yourself?

I am a Christian! I say this because to be a Christian we have to believe those things that Jesus said. Do You Believe What Jesus said?? If you do not believe what Jesus said are you a Christian? Around 30 AD Jesus said that there were people standing...
