Q How do you read Lukes Olivet Discourse as describing two cloud comings of Christ one after the times of the Gentiles and one at its inception

Luke 21:27 states that men will see Christ coming in a cloud. In Matthew 24 and Mark 13 Jesus also said he would send his angels to gather his elect-- a statement not found anywhere in Luke. However, I read Luke 21:20 ("when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies") to mean armies of heaven or angels gathering Christ's elect. At that time Christ did appear in the clouds in AD 66. So Luke 21:27 was fulfilled at that time. However, 21:27 could also have another fulfillment after the times of the gentiles expired in 2006. This is the basic theory.
