What does it mean when your God comes? Is it something to dread? Something to rejoice in? Isaiah 34 & 35 both speak of God coming.
“[T]he physical and spiritual curses of the fall are starting to be taken away by Jesus. The healings were signs of the inbreaking new creation, which were not the complete healing of people’s bodies, since they would still die due to effects of the fall. Nevertheless, these wonders foreshadowed Jesus’ own complete healing in resurrection and the time when his followers will be completely healed.” (G. K. Beale, A New Testament Biblical Theology, p. 569).
