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

    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.

Romans 13:11. Keep on praying keep his commandments remain true to him he will be with you.

    This verse and related verses should serve as a reality check for both Christian and none Christian. In my country Australia where they want to change the marriage act to include homosexuals, we need to live as close to Jesus more than ever. We need to be scripture in action. Wake up world!
