Mathew Chapter 24 Completely Dissected!!!!
The 4 Horsemen of Revelations
Why is there so much confusion over when the rapture happens? Most Christian’s don’t know this, but in Mathew chapter 24, JESUS predicts the end times for us in exact chronological order!!! All we have to do is read the chapter slowly, and carefully and the LORD will tell us exactly when he will come back in the Eastern sky and rapture his Church body!!!
Matthew Chapter 24
Jesus Foretells the Future
1 As Jesus was leaving the Temple grounds, his disciples pointed out to him the various Temple buildings. 2 But he responded, “Do you see all these buildings? I tell you the truth, they will be completely demolished. Not one stone will be left on top of another!”
*(This prophecy was fulfilled in 70 AD!)
3 Later, Jesus sat on the Mount of Olives. His disciples came to him privately and said, “Tell us, when will all this happen? What sign will signal your return and the end of the world?”
* (Ok Reader! JESUS will give us the signs of what will happen first before his return)
4 Jesus told them, “Don’t let anyone mislead you, 5 for many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah.’ They will deceive many.
*(Like Reverend Sun Myong Moon) - Leader of one of the largest churches in the world headquartered out of South Korea - He says JESUS failed in his mission, and he now calls himself the messiah!)
6 And you will hear of wars and threats of wars, but don’t panic. Yes, these things must take place, but the end won’t follow immediately. 7 Nation will go to war against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.
*The USA is at war with Iraq and Afghanistan at this time, with our troops also stationed all over the world. NOTICE JESUS SAID (but the end wont follow immediately)
7 - cont. - There will be famines and earthquakes in many parts of the world. 8 But all this is only the first of the birth pains, with more to come. JESUS says this is just the beginning with more to come --- STILL NO MENTION OF A RAPTURE YET!!!!
*Every year that goes by, there are more earthquakes then the year before. There is famine all over the world at this time with even massive starvation happening throughout Africa and parts of Asia.
9 “Then you will be arrested, persecuted, and killed. You will be hated all over the world because you are my followers. 10 And many will turn away from me and betray and hate each other.
*(JESUS says) then we will be arrested - persecuted and killed - This sounds like TRIBULATION TO ME. JESUS goes on to say that we will be hated all over the world, which would mean every single country in the world…. So here we have TRIBULATION and still NO mention of his COMING or the rapture of the Church………
11 And many false prophets will appear and will deceive many people. 12 Sin will be rampant everywhere, and the love of many will grow cold. 13 But the one who endures to the end will be saved.
*Everywhere I look on the internet and Television people are calling themselves (prophets) - in fact it would seem that everyone is a prophet now. JESUS warned us about this. NOW ATTENTION!!! LOOK at the verse 13 CAREFULLY- JESUS says - but the one who endures to the end will be saved!! What does he mean by the end? Could he mean the end of the 7 year tribulation? We have already read just above that terrible tribulation is ALREADY HAPPENING and yet there is still NO mention of a RAPTURE happening yet………NOW JESUS is telling us that we must endure to the end---- KIND OF BLOWS APART the whole pre - tribulation rapture theory doesn’t it???
14 And the Good News about the Kingdom will be preached throughout the whole world, so that all nations will hear it; and then the end will come.
*The good news will be preached all over the world, and JESUS says THEN THE END WILL COME ----- STILL NO RAPTURE MENTIONED!!! Keep reading ahead because the rapture of the Church is coming up soon…………..
15 “The day is coming when you will see what Daniel the prophet spoke about—the sacrilegious object that causes desecration standing in the Holy Place.” (Reader, pay attention!)
*JESUS says that the sacrilegious object that causes desecration is standing in the HOLY PLACE!! What is the Holy Place? Well it is definitely NOT a Jewish temple. The bible clearly says that no buildings made by man will ever be holy. So what is the holy place? The bible says in the new testament that the body of a born again believer is now the temple of the Holy Spirit or the temple of GOD. So we have learned that it is our own body that is the Holy Temple mentioned by JESUS. No Jewish temple on earth could ever be holy because the Jew’s have rejected JESUS the Messiah……..The only other building in all the earth that is Holy is a born again believers body. That would include his Body-(outer court) - his Soul - (inner court) and his Spirit - (the holy of holies). The object that causes desecration in a born again believers body is the SPIRITUAL and Physical Mark of the Beast. The Christian believer’s who are slowly taking the spiritual mark of the beast, GOD will then have them take the physical Mark of the Beast. It is the Mark of the Beast that causes a Christian persons body to become desecrated. The spiritual mark of the beast is the false bible doctrines and false JESUS’ being preached all over the world.
SO ABOVE we have the spiritual and physical Mark of the Beast and STILL NO RAPTURE YET----- We are at the half way point of the 7 year tribulation now.
16 “Then those in Judea must flee to the hills. 17 A person out on the deck of a roof must not go down into the house to pack. 18 A person out in the field must not return even to get a coat. 19 How terrible it will be for pregnant women and for nursing mothers in those days. 20 And pray that your flight will not be in winter or on the Sabbath. 21 For there will be greater anguish than at any time since the world began. And it will never be so great again. 22 In fact, unless that time of calamity is shortened, not a single person will survive. But it will be shortened for the sake of God’s chosen ones.
*Here we hear from JESUS that we are allowed to run away. We are NOT allowed to fight, but we ARE allowed to run away. JESUS says there will be greater anguish then at any time since the world began-WOW- and still no rapture mentioned yet…… JESUS also goes on to say above that unless that time was shortened not a single person would survive, AND HERE IS THE IMPORTANT PART --- JESUS says - but it will be shortened for the sake of GOD’S chosen ones…. Well who are GOD’S chosen ones??
Of course we born again Christian’s are GOD’S chosen ones. So think about this now. We are going to see such tribulation that the world has never ever seen before or will ever see again, and the days will be so bad that it even has to be shortened for the sake of the Christian’s………. AS WE CAN CLEARLY SEE FROM THE ABOVE SCRIPTURE - We Christian’s are here during the great and terrible 7 year tribulation. Let us read further though!!!
23 “Then if anyone tells you, ‘Look, here is the Messiah,’ or ‘There he is,’ don’t believe it. 24 For false messiahs and false prophets will rise up and perform great signs and wonders so as to deceive, if possible, even God’s chosen ones. 25 See, I have warned you about this ahead of time.
*JESUS warns us that the false prophets of the world will perform great signs and wonders so as to deceive if possible even the CHRISTIAN’S ----- so as we have learned yes the CHRISTIAN’S are still here on earth going through this terrible 7 year tribulation. In-fact JESUS hints that even some of us will be deceived by the wonders and signs that these evil prophets will do worldwide.
26 “So if someone tells you, ‘Look, the Messiah is out in the desert,’ don’t bother to go and look. Or, ‘Look, he is hiding here,’ don’t believe it! 27 For as the lightning flashes in the east and shines to the west, so it will be when the Son of Man comes. 28 Just as the gathering of vultures shows there is a carcass nearby, so these signs indicate that the end is near.
*JESUS now says above that the end is near! JESUS also clearly says that he isn’t coming back in the form of a man again, yet this time he comes back as GOD!
29 “Immediately after the anguish of those days, the sun will be darkened, the moon will give no light, the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers in the heavens will be shaken.
*Here we have supernatural signs occurring with the sun, the moon and even the powers in the heavens will be shaken but STILL NO RAPTURE------------
30 And then at last, the sign that the Son of Man is coming will appear in the heavens, and there will be deep mourning among all the peoples of the earth. And they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And he will send out his angels with the mighty blast of a trumpet, and they will gather his chosen ones from all over the world—from the farthest ends of the earth and heaven.
*JESUS says, and then at last- so we know this is the VERY END HERE….. As JESUS comes in the Heavens there will be deep mourning among all the people on earth………
They will see JESUS coming on the clouds of Heaven with POWER and great GLORY for he is coming as GOD………….. JESUS then says his angels will gather his chosen ones from all over the world -----
HERE FINALLY IS THE RAPTURE PRAISE GOD!!
So once again, we learn directly from JESUS’ own mouth that we are Raptured at the very end of the 7 year tribulation, NOT before the 7 year tribulation starts like is being taught all over the world---- The Pre Tribulation Rapture are all lies from Satan, and it cannot be found in the bible. There isn’t a single scripture in the entire bible that teaches a pre tribulation rapture not one!
HERE ARE A FEW MORE SCRIPTURES RIGHT OUT OF JESUS’ own mouth that he will rapture us at the very end of the 7 year tribulation--
As we can clearly see by slowly dissecting Mathew chapter 24 - the church DOES go through the entire 7 year tribulation only to find itself raptured at the very very end of the 7 years when JESUS comes back in the clouds as GOD with great POWER and GLORY.
We have to humble ourselves to what the Holy Bible says. Even if our own churches and friends are teaching that the rapture happens before the 7 year tribulation, we must still humble ourselves to GOD’S Holy Bible and utilize the bible in all areas of our life, including in believing what JESUS says about the rapture and all end time prophecy. JESUS says over and over again in the bible that we are raptured at the very end of the tribulation when the last trumpet is blown. The last trumpet mentioned here is the 7th trumpet spoken of in the book of revelations. The 7th trumpet is blown at the very end of the 7 year tribulation.
Now is the time more then ever for us to fall madly in love with GOD’S SON JESUS….. Let us work on making JESUS the very love of our life from the time we wake up until the time we go to bed each day. Here is a wonderful article that I know will greatly bless you and help you to get closer to JESUS then you ever have before in your life… www.tearstojoyministries.org/How_Can_I.php
Let us make sure that we put aside a lot of time for JESUS and his bible each day so as to work on a loving, intimate and fiery relationship with the LORD.
