Act 9:5 And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.
we are told that Jesus’ feet will not touch the ground until the 3rd coming…
so how can we tell was this really Jesus or an angel messenger?

Jesus also visited John on the island of Patmos. It appears very much that the visit was NOT a vision, and that it was a definite reality.
I suggest that when Jesus came to Saul (when Saul was on his way to Damascus,) that this was also a literal event. Later, Paul asked the Corinthian believers, “Am I not an apostle? am I not free? have I not SEEN Jesus Christ our Lord?” (1Cor 9:1.)
Here he claims to have seen Jesus, and I believe that the prior event, near Damascus, was the event he refers to.
Newbie, is it possible that the idea that Jesus will not set foot on the earth prior to the 3rd Coming, is over-stepping the mark, as it were? Yes, it is a common thought now, but I don’t think we are actually told that. The main warning/restraint is that the literal, collective, MEETING of the Redeemed [with Jesus] will take place “in the air”. (1Thess 4:17.)
You are bringing good thoughts, Newbie, and I do not want to discourage you in any way!

1Co 9:1 Am I not an apostle? am I not free? have I not seen Jesus Christ our Lord? are not ye my work in the Lord?
excellent!! Yes, I do believe that Jesus actually appeared to Saul/Paul… and maybe His feet did not touch the ground but he was elevated somewhat…
