Discussion for Matthew 24

    Mike:Read Mark13:32. The Son of God doesn't know. I know that nobody on earth knows. Has The Father Tugged on your Heart: John 6:44. Ask Forgiveness, you will be Washed by His Blood: Revelation 1:5. He will Baptist you with The Holy Ghost: Mark 1:8. You will be Changed, all things will be New: 2Corinthians 5:17.

    I can tell you the exact day and hour the messiah will return. Three and a half days after the two witnesses are killed. The part that confuses most people is the fact that there are 2 resurrections. The first occurs after the 2 witnesses are killed but after the 1000 year millennium and satan becomes loosened after a little season this is the day and hour no man knows or the second resurrection..

    Voice of love speak; You are right! I found the same as you, once I could freely read the Scriptures for myself and found that ALL the words of the Prophets and Apostles, and the Lord Jesus Himself, ONLY say just that! If we are already used to the Narrow Way walking with Jesus every day, then we won't be offended or misled when the whole world collapses under its own rebellion and confusion!

    Every time I read this it makes it harder to believe in pretrib rap. He talks about our faith being put to the ultimate test and many falling away in other scripture. The design of this chapter lines out post trib rap to me. All of the disciples minus John I believe were martyr'd for there faith. I think it's naïve to think that we won't be tested and go thru suffering Matt:9 -22.I pray Im wrong
