Breakdown Of Matthew 24 by MrPresident1: 11:19pm On Sep 21, 2020
Matthew 24:3-28
King James Version
3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.
10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.

11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand: )
16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:
17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:
18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.
19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:

21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.
24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
25 Behold, I have told you before.
26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.
27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.

29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:
33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.

48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;
49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;
50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Re: Breakdown Of Matthew 24 by MrPresident1: 11:23pm On Sep 21, 2020
Jesus gave a comprehensive breakdown of all that we should expect spanning from about 70AD when Rome sacked the temple of God to this present time that we are in, which is 2020AD.

The prophecy is still evolving, we have spent about 1950 years inside this prophecy.

One important point to take note of in the understanding of this set of prophecies is that Jesus did not lay them out in a chronological fashion, he laid them out systematically. The attempt to interpret chronologically has been the reason many Christians have not been able to understand them. These is why people are talking about Christians being killed for the sake of the gospel at this time; or they are saying the tribulation is just starting; or some seven year tribulation period or some pre-tribulation period is just commencing; and so many other oddities.

By attempting to analyse the verses sequentially or chronologically, they miss critical timelines of interpretation.

Also, the interpretation of this chapter needs a basic understanding of world history, with this basic understanding, one is able to situate events in their proper timeline and this helps to better unravel the prophecies.
Re: Breakdown Of Matthew 24 by MrPresident1: 6:44am On Sep 22, 2020
Verse 3-5

This passage opens with Jesus’ disciples coming to him, privately, at the Mount of Olives.

The first thing that Jesus tells them is that they should take heed that no man deceives them; many a Christ and Prophets would come in his name. Jesus enjoins them to be careful and vigilant so that nobody deceives them. We need to understand that this is not the beginning of the prophecy in a chronological sense.

Deceit and deception by false prophets and fake anointings cannot be the beginning of the prophecy because the disciples and other followers of Jesus could not have been deceived as of that time. They were the eyewitnesses, so how can any false prophet or fake anointed come and deceive them when everything happened in their very eyes? 1 John 1:1

Jesus really emphasized this issue of false prophets and fake Christs, I think this is the prophecy he emphasized the most to his disciples
Re: Breakdown Of Matthew 24 by MrPresident1: 7:33am On Sep 22, 2020
Verse 15-20

This is actually the opening part of the prophecy, and it begins with sighting the abomination of desolation in the holy place. Jesus commands his disciples to flee when they see this sign. He asks them to make haste to run away from Judea when they behold this abomination standing in the place where it ought not.

What is the Abomination of desolation that Jesus is talking about? The presence of Babylonian soldiers in Jerusalem was the abomination that led to the first desolation. This first desolation happened on March 16, 597 BC. This was the destruction of the first temple and the dispersal of the Jews, until, Cyrus King of Persia, allowed them to return home in 538 BC Ezra 1:1-4

The presence of Roman soldiers in Jerusalem was the abomination that led to the second desolation which happened March to September 70AD. The Jews were brutally massacred and forcibly dispersed by the Romans. Many of them were sold into servitude and slavery, not a few of them became gladiators fighting to the death in the arenas of the Roman republic.

Jesus was warning his disciples that immediately they see the Roman soldiers in the place where they are not supposed to be seen, they should flee Judea. They should flee into the mountains Psalms 125:2. This is the opening of the prophecy

https://www.nairaland.com/3997198/abomination-desolation

As you can see, we jumped from verse 3-5 to verse 5-20. The reason we have done this is that as I have told you in the opening comments, the prophecy is not laid out chronologically or sequentially, Jesus expounded them systematically
Re: Breakdown Of Matthew 24 by MrPresident1: 7:39am On Sep 22, 2020
Verse 6-14 is the second part of the prophecy

When they have fled, and in the aftermath of the destruction of Jerusalem and the temple of God, there will be a lot of disturbances in the world, wars and famines and pestilences. Their dispersal to the nations would bring them great suffering; having to leave among people with no knowledge of God, and having to bring these same people into the knowledge of God

They would be hated of all men; they would betray one another at the pain of death; many false prophets, christs and messiahs would arise purporting to be able to save them from their tribulations. Because of the grief and turmoil, the love of many would become cold. In the midst of all these trouble, only the steadfast and the ones who holds tightly will be saved.

The gospel will be preached to the whole world. This work has already been accomplished.

Re: Breakdown Of Matthew 24 by MrPresident1: 7:04pm On Sep 22, 2020
Verse 21-28

All these suffering is the great tribulation Deuteronomy 4:30.

Slave trade, Jim crow, Neocolonism, colonialism, fuel price hike, increasing taxes etc

It started when the abomination which leads to desolation was sighted in the holy place, and the consequent fleeing into the mountains, as Jesus advised. It was going to be the worst tribulation, and there shall never be any like it ever again. God shortened the time of those days (of the end) because of the brutality (Mathew 24:22) otherwise no flesh would have been saved. The suffering would have been so much that it would have been impossible to remain a Christian in the face of it all: Its either all flesh dies, or all flesh becomes corrupted.

This is the case during the tail end of the tribulations Ezekiel 35:5.

For the sake of the Elect, precious in the sight of God, those days were shortened. The tribulations ended on the 14th of August 2017. If the tribulation did not end, Nigeria would have been in the throes of a very bloody and cruel war by now. God thwarted their depraved, cruel, evil, devious, wicked, terrible, atrocious, and iniquitous plans

Because of the grievousness and brutality of the tribulations, during its time, many people would look for false saviours and false messiahs to succour/save them; these men and women with fake anointing would abound in those days, they will show mighty acts, and great signs and wonders, but Jesus had warned us already that they are fake. Were thy not abundant? We are all living witnesses.

Jesus emphasized this issue of false prophets and Christs more than any other sign.

He talks about these false messiahs in verses 5, 23, and 24. He knew that his people will be very vulnerable to the antics of these false people at those times (now). If it were possible, these false prophets and false messiahs would deceive the very elect! We know this isn’t possible. They failed.

Jesus said it like ‘’If they told you that a mighty prophet is in the desert, don’t bother yourself; if he is said to be living on top of Mount Kilimanjaro, don’t bother yourself; if said to he is living on some deserted island off the coast of Nicaragua or Antigua and Barbuda, don’t bother yourself; if they say he is spewing fire from his mouth and smoke is coming out from his ears and nostrils, don’t bother yourself; if he turns Ekwueme and says it and it happens as he says it, don’t bother yourself. IT IS NOT I’’.
Re: Breakdown Of Matthew 24 by MrPresident1: 7:31am On Sep 23, 2020
In verse 28, Jesus says when he comes back all eyes will see him, no eye will miss his return, he will come back like the sun that travels from the east to the west.

No matter where you are you must see the sun as it arises or as it sets!

Jesus gives a critical symbol and marker to help us know and judge the time of that period, he says where the carcase is, there the eagles will gather.

This verse is a time marker. Carcase is dead body, eagles are the leaders of the world, Anglo/America is the place of the carcase. When you see the eagles gather in the place of the carcase during that particular time, it should tell you the time period in prophecy that you are in.

What is a tribulation?

A Tribulation is the consequence when Israel sins against God and her cup is full and she needs to be punished to expiate her sins and help her to start a new beginning.

As far back as Deuteronomy, Moses had warned the Israelites and had shown them what to do when they entered a tribulation

Deuteronomy 4:24-31
24 For the LORD thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God.
25 When thou shalt beget children, and children's children, and ye shall have remained long in the land, and shall corrupt yourselves, and make a graven image, or the likeness of anything, and shall do evil in the sight of the LORD thy God, to provoke him to anger:
26 I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day, that ye shall soon utterly perish from off the land whereunto ye go over Jordan to possess it; ye shall not prolong your days upon it, but shall utterly be destroyed.
27 And the LORD shall scatter you among the nations, and ye shall be left few in number among the heathen, whither the LORD shall lead you.
28 And there ye shall serve gods, the work of men's hands, wood and stone, which neither see, nor hear, nor eat, nor smell.

29 But if from thence thou shalt seek the LORD thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul.
30 When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to the LORD thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice;
31 (For the LORD thy God is a merciful God; ) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them


This last one, which ended on the 14th of August 2017, is the greatest and terriblest tribulation that Israel has ever faced. Israel was displaced from the land; discontinued from heritage Jeremiah 17:4.

Israel, that God gave a very soft life, was made to work like a jackass. She was made to grind and toil, she is impoverished, and the country where the majority of ancient Israelites can be found today is now the ''Poverty Capital of the world'' Nigeria. This is hell.
Re: Breakdown Of Matthew 24 by MrPresident1: 8:10am On Sep 23, 2020
I shudder at what these animals had in store for us had the Most High God not put an end to the tribulation on 14th August 2017. Even as the tribulation has ended, you can see how Nigerians are suffering today.

If God had not ended the tribulation, today, we would have been in the midst of a most bitter, cruel, and bloodiest war cry

Thank you God.

It would have been the easiest thing to plunge Nigeria into war, playing on our primordial differences, pitting brothers against brothers, they wanted to destroy us completely but God intervened to save us cry

Re: Breakdown Of Matthew 24 by MrPresident1: 2:03am On Sep 27, 2020
Verse29-34

29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:
33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.


We see a progression of events leading to the end of ‘this generation’.

The darkening of the sun and the moon not giving her light is an eclipse.
Heaven is the code word for the leading ruling nations of the earth led by America.
The stars of heaven are the rulers and principals of heaven, they fell on that date.
Powers of the heavens shall be shaken means that they will experience a jolt in their powers, they fell but are allowed to continue to the end because the rulership of the world cannot be in a vacuum, there has to be rulers maintaining some semblance of rulership and order until Jesus Christ the King is revealed in the clouds of heaven, and he sends his angels to gather his elect from the four winds of heaven.

The Bible refers to the whole earth as heaven, this is because the whole earth has become Rome, and we have all become Romans Acts 22:27.

The eclipse being referred is the Great American Total Solar Eclipse of 21st August 2017

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BsFsw7DeUY0

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lgUGVP5Hh-o

Darkness descended in the middle of the day Amos 8:9, Micah 3:6.

Verse 29 says, immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened.

This speech by President Donald Trump in which he denounced Racism, racial supremacy, and racial supremacist groups marked the end of the tribulation. This signal for the end of the tribulation was immediately followed by the eclipse of 21st August 2017

When I say I shudder at what these animals had in store for us, this link below is an example

https://www.rt.com/usa/407527-us-west-africa-invasion-drill/

A simulation game for US war-college students prepared participants for an invasion of West Africa in response to a terrorist attack on US soil, investigative news website The Intercept reports.

The hypothetical scenario involved a populist president reacting to a domestic terrorist attack by starting a war in West Africa. The war is touted as a three-year operation but turns into a protracted quagmire, echoing US involvement in Afghanistan after 2001.

The game was conducted last year during a series of exercises culminating in a five-day on-site session at the Air Force Wargaming Institute at Maxwell Air Force Base in Alabama, according to material released under the Freedom of Information Act.

The sign of the son of man in heaven

The Lord is a man of war, and his sign in heaven is war! Exodus 15:3, Revelation 12:7. The sign of the son of man in heaven is this coronavirus pandemic. President Trump has called it the invisible enemy and declared war on it. President Trump declared war on corona virus. Since World War 2, like the effects of a real war, the world has not seen this level of socio-political and economic turmoil that this pandemic has brought. Like a real war too, people were locked down, who moves about in the midst of heavy artillery shelling and aerial bombardment? This is the point we are, in the fulfilment of Bible prophecy.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mVAhBfRDXec

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ph07Ki6RPnY
After we have seen the sign of the son of man in heaven, the next sign is that all the tribes of the earth shall mourn. Something will happen to make all the tribes of the earth to mourn. This is the day of judgement Isaiah 63:1-3. Very likely an asteroid will hit the earth, it will cause earth-wide devastation, and the epicentre will be in heaven.

The sound of the trumpet is thunder. It will boom as the asteroid hits the earth’s atmosphere and disintegrates. Because of the size of the meteor, the earth's atmosphere will not be able to burn it up completely, fragments will make it to land and cause devastation.

When the dead in Christ who are in their (mental) graves hear the sound of thunder, the sound of the voice of their God, they will hurry to his call and come out of their (mental) graves. They will resurrect and become like angels; having super-human, super-mental capacities and capabilities.

Jesus uses the imminence of summer after spring to describe the urgency of his coming upon the sighting of the signs that he is giving which will become very apparent just before his return. He says ‘this generation shall not pass till all these things are fulfilled’’ meaning that there will be a culmination of prophecy, and thence, his sure return before the end of this ‘’generation’’.

We take note that most of the prophecies of the end-time were fulfilled during the 1st term of presidency of President Donald Trump.
Re: Breakdown Of Matthew 24 by MrPresident1: 9:25am On Sep 27, 2020
35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.


Heaven and earth will pass away meaning that the word of God that has already been spoken is surer than the universe itself. Jesus informs his disciples that despite the preponderance of evidence pointing to his imminent return, and signs and wonders, and unraveling and fulfillment of prophecy, no man or angel will ever be able to know the exact day or hour of his return. The sole prerogative to decree the day or hour lies with God. I think this is because God has not made up his mind on the hour, because he never hides anything from the son. If he has made the decision, his son would know
Even the angels of heaven, the messengers of the goodwill of God toward all men, these men who are his very Elect, do not know the date.

In the days of Noah, the people continued on as they did during the time that Noah was warning them and building his ark; they continued partying and feasting, marrying and giving in marriage. They did not even notice that Noah, obviously the object and subject of cruel mockery, insane jokes and hilarious jests, had entered his Ark; they had not noticed that he had completed his ark, and they had taken no note that the doors of his ark had been shut. No one noticed all these until the floods swept them all away.

God will eventually select and separate his people for good. He will allow tares and the wheat to grow together, the sheep and the goats, and then he will separate them on the last day. The sheep will be redeemed and rewarded with eternal life, and goats will be punished. Wheat will be gathered up and pampered. Tares will be burned up, no one has need of them.

Jesus reiterates again that no man knows the hour of his return and urges us to watch carefully, steadfastly, and faithfully. If the man of the house knows the exact hour the thief would come, he could even prepare a whole armed brigade to defend himself and his family. We will all see the signs, but no one will successfully predict the time of his coming. It will catch everyone by surprise.

Our watch is in our patient continuance in well doing which comes with great and excellent sure promises of eternal life and bliss.

44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.
48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;
49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;
50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.


Jesus advises us to always be ready because in the very hour we think it is unlikely for him to return, that is when he will return. The wise and faithful servant is the one constantly providing meat and nourishment for the flock of God. That wise servant will be made the ruler over all the Lord’s goods.

The foolish servant who begins to think that the Lord has delayed his coming and so begins to smite his fellow servants and also indulge with gluttons and the drunkards, this servant will be caught flatfooted by his Lord’s return. And will be given his place among the hypocrites where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Matthew 24:3-28
King James Version
3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.
10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.

11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand: )
16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:
17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:
18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.
19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:

21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.
24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
25 Behold, I have told you before.
26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.
27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.

29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:
33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.

48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;
49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;
50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

1 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.
2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?


The chapter opens with Jesus departing from the temple (Jerusalem) and his disciples coming to show him the buildings of the temple. Jesus tells them that no stone will be left unturned in Jerusalem. This passage is symbolic. Jerusalem is the temple of God, and the people are the stones used to build the buildings of the house of God, Jesus himself the chief cornerstone. 1 Peter 2:5

Ephesians 2:20-22
20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:
22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

Verse 6-14 is the second part of the prophecy

When they have fled, and in the aftermath of the destruction of Jerusalem and the temple of God, there will be a lot of disturbances in the world, wars and famines and pestilences. Their dispersal to the nations would bring them great suffering; having to leave among people with no knowledge of God, and having to bring these same people into the knowledge of God

They would be hated of all men; they would betray one another at the pain of death; many false prophets, christs and messiahs would arise purporting to be able to save them from their tribulations. Because of the grief and turmoil, the love of many would become cold. In the midst of all these trouble, only the steadfast and the ones who holds tightly will be saved.

The gospel will be preached to the whole world. This work has already been accomplished.

The sign of the son of man in heaven

The Lord is a man of war, and his sign in heaven is war! Exodus 15:3, Revelation 12:7. The sign of the son of man in heaven is this coronavirus pandemic. President Trump has called it the invisible enemy and declared war on it. President Trump declared war on corona virus. Since World War 2, like the effects of a real war, the world has not seen this level of socio-political and economic turmoil that this pandemic has brought. Like a real war too, people were locked down, who moves about in the midst of heavy artillery shelling and aerial bombardment? This is the point we are, in the fulfilment of Bible prophecy.

After we have seen the sign of the son of man in heaven, the next sign is that all the tribes of the earth shall mourn. Something will happen to make all the tribes of the earth to mourn. This is the day of judgement Isaiah 63:1-3. Very likely an asteroid will hit the earth, it will cause earth-wide devastation, and the epicentre will be in heaven.

The sound of the trumpet is thunder. It will boom as the asteroid hits the earth’s atmosphere and disintegrates. Because of the size of the meteor, the earth's atmosphere will not be able to burn it up completely, fragments will make it to land and cause devastation.

When the dead in Christ who are in their (mental) graves hear the sound of thunder, the sound of the voice of their God, they will hurry to his call and come out of their (mental) graves. They will resurrect and become like angels; having super-human, super-mental capacities and capabilities.

Jesus uses the imminence of summer after spring to describe the urgency of his coming upon the sighting of the signs that he is giving which will become very apparent just before his return. He says ‘this generation shall not pass till all these things are fulfilled’’ meaning that there will be a culmination of prophecy, and thence, his sure return before the end of this ‘’generation’’.

We take note that most of the prophecies of the end-time were fulfilled during the 1st term of presidency of President Donald Trump.

War in heaven, against the invisible enemy.

The corona virus pandemic and its attendant socioeconomic and political issues is the sign of the son of man in heaven

Measured chaos
Re: Breakdown Of Matthew 24 by MrPresident1: 10:19pm On Sep 29, 2020
America is the heaven of this world.

The sign of the son of man in heaven is the corona virus disease or Covid 19. As you can see, America and all the top nations which are the heaven of our world have had the most number of infections and death.

Poor countries like Nigeria which are the hell of the world have had almost insignificant number of infections.

Now you know the exact point where we are in Bible prophecy.

the next prophecy is: Then shall all the tribes of earth mourn

President Trump says he & first lady tested positive for coronavirus after top aide infected on campaign trail

https://www.rt.com/usa/502309-trump-melania-positive-covid/

US President Donald Trump has confirmed that he and First Lady Melania Trump have both tested positive for the coronavirus, just hours after it was learned a senior aide had contracted the illness.

“Tonight, [the first lady] and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!” the president tweeted in the early hours of Friday morning.


The corona virus pandemic is the sign of the son of man in heaven. Heaven is the leading ruling nations of the earth. Now, the invisible enemy has penetrated the highest echelon of political power in heaven.

The President of the world United states has tested positive for corona virus

Matthew 24:30
And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven:


If the sign of the son of man appears in the heavens of heaven, then there really is great need to be more circumspect at this time. This can only mean that Jesus' return is now accelerated. President Trump represents heavens of the heaven because he is the ruler of the heaven of this world

This could just be a time marker to indicate the time we are now in Scripture .

The invisible enemy has penetrated the heavens of heaven.
Re: Breakdown Of Matthew 24 by MrPresident1: 8:01pm On Oct 17, 2020
I hope you are now seeing that the corona virus pandemic is the sign of the Son of man in heaven. In Nigeria and Africa which is the hell of the world, the pandemic is all but dead. But in America and Great Britain, they are still talking about increasing cases and lockdown and shutdowns.

Jesus is coming soon.

The next prophecy that will be fulfilled is - now shall all the tribes of the earth mourn...

Matthew 24:30
And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
