People's Bible Notes for Matthew 24:21


Mt 24:21 Great tribulation. The account given by Josephus, the Jewish historian who witnessed and recorded the war, is almost an echo of the predictions of Christ. Women ate their own children from starvation; the Jews within the city fought each other as well as the Roman army; on August 10, A.D. 70, the city was stormed and there was a universal massacre; 1,100,00 persons perished, and 100,000 survivors were sold into slavery.

    What happeneds when someone dies
  • Shelly Johnson - in Reply on Matthew 24:21
    Hi,

    I had a supernatural experience, I was sleeping with my husband one morning and I felt a heavy weight on my chest and as I was gasping for air I was trying to get my husbands attention and my soul was pulled out of my body. After that I was in this beautiful light that I cannot explain. I heard people whispering but I didn't see any faces but I've seen the images of spiritual beings that were there. More like glorified bodies. I always ask god how can he forgive me for all the things I've done but when I was standing in the midst of this light and he spoke to me, not with words that one can comprehend but external with opening up his mouth. He love is so powerful that it was shining through me.

    Thank you for sharing that Shelley, your reply was very timely and reassuring to me.

    It was some months ago I put the question in, the reason being I care for my mother whom is getting close to the end. She cannot talk now. As time is close the more I think deeply about what happeneds after. I pray and ask.

    Your experience which you very kindly gave me was a confirmation of what I watched with my mum only last week. As she sat in bed in the morning I hesitated getting her up as I could see she looked so happy, she was chatting away to what seemed like a few people around her, but when she looked up in front of her face was beaming, her smile and in particular her eyes literally shone! I knew then she was experiencing something very very special. I can only describe it as awsome. I was witnessing Love in all it's beauty. what I watched a witnessed was pure Love - no doubt whatsoever.

    I can only say my prayer requests have been answered and to be given a timely confirmation by you also a week later is something quite lovely - don't you think.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Matthew 24:21
    Write it down and just keep it for a while. Ask: how did you feel towards it. What do you think. Words you heard.

    Be careful. I've had visions. They usually have a purpose: revelation, comfort, answer to a prayer.

    2 Corinthians 11:14

    And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
  • Ruby - in Reply on Matthew 24:21
    Mishael - I'm curious why you say be careful with visions. They have a purpose: revelation, comfort, answer to a prayer. I do know satan is a liar and can trick but are you saying he can answer my prayers and comfort me.
  • How Lucifer Became Satan - in Reply on Matthew 24:21
    You can go back to this website entrance, to the SEARCH Box that is on top. Type in LUCIFER and hit the arrow. Copy those scriptures on paper. (See if Ezekiel 28 is in the list?)

    Open up your Bible and look up those verses. IF your Bible pages have CENTER of the page, REFERENCE columns;

    See the alphabet letters in the verses and enter those scriptures in your list from the Reference Column.

    Now you can read along the event, pulling in the other references and it gives you a complete picture of what is what.

    I did it. I remember that there were 3 archangels: Lucifer, Michael, Gabriel. Other religions have more in their doctrines; not Gods.

    Lucifer was 4th in line but sin was found in him and he was ejected with his followers to earth. (1/3 of angels turned evil)

    Only Michael and Gabriel remain. I don't want to hear about other archangels from googling.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Matthew 24:21
    No. I believe your vision is real. I've had them. So wonderful when they happen.

    I had one as a new Christian that took me by surprise and caused fear. I found out that satan can use the Bible against us.

    I heard an audible voice in the room. I did not feel the witness in my spirit; that it was from God.

    It could've derailed me right there.

    You will feel no fear from a vision of God. It will edify you and bless you. The memory will carry you over rough patches in life.

    I had one where I was standing in clouds. I took a big breath. The air was so crisp and clean. I filled my lungs, over and over. I said " what is that!?" In my spirit I heard: the air in Heaven is faith....

    :) Truck driver was maybe two years a born again Christian at the time of the vision.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Matthew 24:21
    I sent that to a truck driver friend of mine.

    (Ex Fire ems paramedic). He had a mini-stroke last week. Called me in Texas from Ohio, from the side of a road. I had to call police and Ems and a few others. He had driven home! Couldn't talk. Got mad cause ems found him & took him to the hospital. He's ok.

    I hope he will be more serious about diet.

    And about Being born again, from your letter.

    He is in our prayers now.
