Discussion for Matthew 24:26

  • John madden for verse 26
    If they say he is here or there .dont go or believe them.hes comeing in the clouds every eye shall see him.the true christ
  • the pre trib rapture is a secret coming even said jesus comes in secret and remains in secret until he is reveled second coming jesus warns not to believe he is in a secret place listen and believe rapturists it is a lie there is one second coming and it will be no secret read the truth
  • Jesus Villalobos for verse 26
    This is warning of a false rapture. The subject matter is the coming of Jesus. Jesus starts this by saying that "Many will come in His name; saying I am He." This is NOT saying that many will claim to be the messiah. It is saying that they were here to take us to Him. These would be the very devils controlling those who were preaching false doctrines concerning the timing of His return. We MUST remember, the subject being addressed by Jesus to His disciples, is the sign and the timing of His return to earth. This is why He strictly tells us NOT to go with those who will ultimately say they are here to take us to Him. These would be the very devils that came in the days of Noah and took the women and produced giants like Goliath. This is the correct interpretation of what Jesus was talking about when He warned us NOT to go with them! He then goes on to tell us we MUST wait for the sign of the Son of Man before His return. Matthew 24:29-31.
