Mt 24:36 Of that day and hour knoweth no [man]. How foolish then to be figuring out the time of the Lord's coming.

Discussion for Matthew 24

    The Gospel of God cometh only from God, our Father which art in heaven. Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: Father, the hour is come glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. The mercy of man is toward his neighbour but the mercy of the Lord is upon all flesh: he reproveth, and nurtureth, and teacheth and bringeth again, as a shepherd his flock. Let the LORD, the God of the spirits of all flesh, set a man over the congregation, And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, And all flesh shall see the salvation of God.
  • Joshua
    All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds. Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created. For God made not death: neither hath he pleasure in the destruction of the living. For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord GOD: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye. For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him. The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

    A Taylor; Don't under stand your disbelief In Jesus Christ (notice capital letters) for it seems that you know about Him and His words. I will pray that He opens your eyes and heart to His word. Praise the LORD.
  • Anthony Taylor
    everything that jesus said is coming true, false prophets, lies upon lies, deceptions, strong hate for mankind,unbelief, even hate for jesus christ,MATTHEW 24:i am guilty, guilty for my unbelief in christ jesus,living in this, no believing in the new world order, living for the lust,the money,drugs,you name it,but truly not living for jesus christ, just bumping my gums, going along with everything

    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.
