People's Bible Notes for Matthew 24:27
Mt 24:27 For as the lightning. There will be no doubt about Christ's coming when he does come, no discussion, no need that any one shall tell it. It will be manifest as the flash of lightning across the sky. There can be no mistake. Such language shows how much those err who claim that his coming was at the destruction of Jerusalem.

I think it coincides with Psalm 103 12 East is always east and west is always west though north and south each only go so far When Christ returns the whole world will know it as said in other places

Sun rise from east and shine of sun's light spread to west from east,although light rise from east.similarly,when jesus will born again,then his glory will spread to west from east and all over world.

The coming of Christ will be so fast as described as a strike of lightning. Therefore we who are ready will know because we will go with him and those that are not ready will be left behind.
