    V.8; All these things are the beginning of sorrows. The theme of v.24 is when he will be coming; a time that no one knows, and what people will see, and natural things that will happen, earthquakes, famine, wars, people leaving their homes with nothing. V.28 is simply what is says, the context is not that the carcase is symbolic of Christ's body. The chapter does not guide us to think it is
  • Shirley
    An answer to Billspiro's question concerning v.28 "For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together." The carcase has to be Jesus Christ because Jesus said we are to eat of His body and drink of His blood. This must be a symbolic figure of the burnt offering that Christ makes for us on the Cross. Rev 1:5 . We are caught up to meet Him the clouds before the Wrath of God is released upon the earth. In other words, this passage is marking the coming of our Lord. "...Immediately After the Tribulation...the sun shall be darkened... v29 ..."And they shall see the Son of Man coming in the clouds...And HE shall gather HIS Elect..." So the Lord is in the Clouds and we are gathered to meet Him there. See Acts 1:11, we are told the Christ will return in the clouds. The next time Christ is mentioned coming in the clouds is Rev. 1:7, which parallels Matthew 24:30. We will be with HIM there b c we are the ones to accepted HIS Carcase as a sacrifice.

    Ann, I posted correction for my comment, hell was prepared for the devil.
    Read Luke 12:4-5. This is Jesus warning, do you not believe him? He says he sends people to hell. Jeremiah 10:23 "O Lord I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his path." Does this tell us we do not have free will? There are many more verse for this.
  • Ann
    God sends no one to hell they send themselves God gives us free will he doesn't
    Force himself on anyone.
  • Lu2677
    Correction; Matthew 25:41; hell prepared for the devil and his angels. Yet God sends man there too.
