Reference: Matthew 24:1-13.
Please read verses 1-6 of Matthew 24.
Let’s begin with versus 6 & 7… And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For Nation will rise against Nation, and Kingdom against Kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of Sorrows. Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by All Nations for my namesake. And then many will be offended, will betray one another and will hate one another.Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many.(Key verse for our modern day current circumstances in the world and the United States) vs-12- And because LAWLESSNESS will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end will be saved.
” Well friend’s there It Is… God’s word is true, and is immutable, and infallible… let’s continue with verse 15.
Abomination that causes desolation. This is the man of sin (2 Thess, 2:4),the Antichrist, who at the midpoint in the tribulation breaks the Covenant he made with the Jewish people at the beginning of the tribulation. (Dan, 9:27) and demands that they and the world worship him. THOSE THAT RESIST WIILL BE PERSECUTED, (all around us today) AND MANY WILL BE MARTYRED; ( this is the reason for the urgency of the instructions in versus 16:22)
Verse 24: 22 The Elect.Those redeemed during the tribulation. The elect of this age (the church) will have been translated before that time begins (1 Thess 4:13-18)
Note on the Rapture Theory or being Translated… this is controversial and debatable… questions arise when you study in the original Greek… hint… caught up in the AIR…AIR being the focal keyword… could mean caught up in your resurrected body.. you’ll have to look into it yourself.
Finally, STUDY. THE PARABLE OF THE FIG TREE. Also look at the Jewish YEAR OF JUBILEE. In studying the Year of Jubilee which is I think based on 50 year periods, you will find that in 2017 prophecy was fulfilled in moving things back to Jerusalem.
The intent of this post is for my benefit as well as yours, as God’s word is very deep and requires much study, discernment, and guidance from the Holy Spirit; prophecy is being fulfilled all around us, but we have to have eyes to see and ears to hear. Please remember as you watch the hard left media and the attacks; that we struggle not against flesh and blood, but against spiritual wickedness in high places, all believers need to gird up their loins and having done all, by putting on your armor, make a stand, God is surely with us.
