Your interpretation, Tim does not match what St. Paul revealed in his epistle:
1Thes. 4 For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the archangel's call, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first;
 then we who are alive, who are left, shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air; and so we shall always be with the Lord.
Also, read this from Haydock's Catholic Bible Commentary:
Ver. 11. So shall he come, as you have seen him going. This word going, says St. Chrysostom, sufficiently intimates, that he ascended by his own power: for so will he come by his own power to judge the world. (Witham) --- Jesus Christ shall come on the last day, in the same body, in the same majesty, to judge the living and the dead. This he had likewise promised, in more than one place of the gospel, speaking of the vengeance, which he will exercise on the city of Jerusalem. St. Jerome, St. Hilary, and many other ancients, have believed that the Son of God will appear again on Mount Olivet, and that all people shall be assembled to judgment. (St. Jerome, super Joel iii. 2.; St. Hilary, super Matthew xxiv. 32.) --- And that same body, which thus ascended to heaven, and which will thus descend, is given us in the blessed Sacrament. "O miracle! exclaims St. Chrysostom, He that sitteth with his Father above, is at the same time handled by men below. Jesus Christ ascending to heaven, both hath his flesh with him above, and hath left it with us below. Elias being taken up, left his disciple, Eliseus, his mantle and double spirit, but the Son of Man ascending, left his own flesh for us." (Lib. iii. de Sacerd. hom. 2. ad pop. Ant. hom. de divit. et paup.) --- Sulpicius Severus, and St. Paulinus, assure us, that the marks of the feet of our Saviour were imprinted in the place off which he rose to heaven; and St. Augustine informs us, that many in his time went to Judea, to venerate these sacred marks. Ven. Bede testifies the same in the eighth age *. In the time of Constantine the great, the empress Helen built a church on the place. (Calmet)
It is clear that Christ will not be re-incarnated. His risen, glorified body is "seated at the right hand of the Father." He is now and eternally will be what he was when he ascended into heaven. And he will come again in his present form to take us into heaven with him on the last day.*
Della, I understand where your interpretation comes from. Firstly, to understand mine, I give most weight to the words of Jesus, Angels, and Paul--before anyone else. In that order. Jesus, as his primary modus operandi, expresses purely in figurative--or parable. He says himself in the Gospels that this the best way for him to be understood by his elect , so that it may filter them from the rest of the world (Matthew 13:10). When Jesus said "I am the door", I don't take it literally--as I'm sure you don't either. I interpret his language of "coming on clouds" as very similar to "I am the door". Do you not see how they can be seen the same way, as examples of figurative and powerful human expression?
