Discussion for Matthew 24

  • Irene123
    I just now NOTICED Matt. 1:1 - "And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple; ... "; this was the last time He was in the temple. The word 'departed' says to me He could do no more for His unbelieving people. He had the disciples and those many they had converted, but so many He could not reach. This was the beginning of His 'time' - for our salvation. It's sad; makes me want to weep.

    Please don't mistake;Eph.2:8 By grace ye are save through faith, gift from God. But the angels did "seal" them, nonetheless;Rev.7:2-3
  • Lu2677
    Irene 123 Re;Rev.7:14,you said we cannot know how the saints are saved during the great tribulation.If you read Rev.7:2and 3 it says the angels sealed them, and that saved them.They were the 12 tribes. It would help you if you would read the whole chapter, or at least read the verse in context.
  • Irene123
    Matt. 24:1-14, speaks of what is going on now, and has been going on for a lo-ong time. This is 'sporadic' and mild tribulation - compared to the all at once world-wide tribulation when the anti-Christ will rule. Because of Rev. 7:14 we know there will be GREAT trib. saints. How - we aren't to know at this time; that's God's business. BUT - they won't be saints that are left behind at the Rapture.
  • Irene123
    You have to read the Bible IN CONTEXT - and with common sense. You have to 'agree' with God's word. The word 'taken', and God's word (not man's imagination) means - raptured.
  • Duncan
    Vs.40,41 both state one taken, other left. In English language (even then), taken also means fooled,(off to Antichrist, Trump 6). Left, (or left standing, Trump 7) wearing Gospel armor, v 13 says he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
