Discussion for Matthew 24

    Our Heavenly Abba Dads Holy Word always explains itself either in verse, context or where its been used before. Behold and look carefully at verse 29. Immediately after the tribulation of those days. Those days time frame is clearly future, why? The Kingdom of God a.k.a. Holy Spirit, Speaking in Tongues, Grace is still here yet, Zion must be Restored
  • Dominic
    Somebody told me that this was a "failed prophecy." Could someone please explain the context of these verses to me more? I noticed that the verses talked about what will happen before the rapture right? I would really appreciate better insight on this. Just been trying to research more into the Bible.

    Lilian I see that you think you will rapture so I say this no one is going anywhere until we are all changed in spiritual bodies so if a false Christ comes while your in the flesh and your whole church follows after him don't go just wait for the true Christ. When the false messiah antichrist gets here you will have two and a half months to wait and then hail stones car size hits earth with fire.
