Discussion for Matthew 24

  • James Peprah
    The prophectic message at Revelation 12 links what Jesus Christ said in Matthew.
  • A disciple
    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!
  • Voice of love speak
    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
