Discussion for Matthew 24

  • KHatcher on Matthew 24:44
    Enjoyed reading all the comments. The coming of the Lord is truly at the door. I know why the bible tells us to pray without ceasing.
  • Artie whitefox on Matthew 24:44
    The disciples in the locked room had the mentality of think not, on their minds. They thought that this was it. They were next. They had no idera that Jesus was going to suddenly show up. That is what it means when the verse says: In an hour that ye think not. It will be so bad that you think. This is it. It is all over. Be aware of this: Satan who is a showy being covered in gems and gold wants to impersonate Jesus. Don't hang around that being when seen, standing on the earth
  • Min. Oliviva Caldwell on Matthew 24:44

    We will never know the hour when Jesus is coming. We must be ready to meet him in the clouds. like the thief in the night. We know it 's near because of the signs of the times. Amen
  • Rpurry on Matthew 24:44
    Please get to know Jesus for yourself! If you don 't have him as your personal savior just say Jesus come into my life I submit myself to you and I believe you died for my sins and rose again with all power. Know that Jesus loves you and you are the righteousness of God in him.
  • Dorothy on Matthew 24:44
    Live each day as if it is your last,doing the work of the Lord and showing love one to another
  • Ray ortiz on Matthew 24:44
    Only Jesus knows the time when he is coming. Be prepared for the clouds, if you are in the Family of God.
  • MockingBird on Matthew 24:44
    God is telling me exactly when He is coming in this scripture : When you think not !!! Be prepared and be ready : and be where God placed you.
  • Jen on Matthew 24:44
    I believe that it means to be ready for Christ at anytime. Live your own life as an upright practicing Christian and never failing in faith. Life is not promised but salvation is and we must keep the faith and be a good example.
