  1. Another observation about the perspective (point of view) when the questions were asked about His coming in Matt. 24:

    When the disciples asked, “what shall be the sign of thy coming?” the perspective (point of view) of the disciples was, they are on earth and Jesus Christ will be coming down from heaven. It is the same perspective during the rapture. We are on earth and Jesus Christ from heaven will come for us.

    Let us try to change the perspective. IF the disciples were asking about the millennial reign of Christ. The perspective would be different.

    In the Millennial Reign, the disciples are in heaven and they will return to earth together with Christ to reign. So based on that perspective, the right question of the disciples may have been, “Lord, when are we going to return to earth?” or “Lord, when are we going to reign?”. But they did not ask those kinds of question.

    If the context of Matt 24 is about the millennial reign, it is not necessary for the disciples to ask for a sign because they will be together with Jesus Christ when He comes to earth.

    If the disciples were really asking for a sign of the coming for the Millennial Reign, which is the right question to ask? What shall be the sign of THY coming? Or what shall be the sign of OUR coming?

    So different perspective requires different way of questioning. Jesus Christ and the disciples should be in the same perspective or else there will be misunderstanding. If you look at the whole chapter of Matt 24, there is no hint of misunderstanding. No follow up question by the disciples. Which means their question was perfectly addressed by Jesus Christ.
     May the Holy Spirit guide us into all truth.

  2. Observation on Matt 24:30-31 if it is the coming of Christ for the Millennial Reign (touch-down) or It is the Rapture, the coming in the clouds (no touch-down)

    (Matt 24:3 [KJV]) And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?  

    The disciples asked 3 questions and one of the questions was “what shall be the sign of thy coming?”

    For now, let us focus on that question about “the coming”. Then Jesus answered
    about His coming. These are the verses in Matt 24 where Jesus specifically mentioned about His coming:
    (Matt 24:27 [KJV])
    For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
     (Matt 24:30 [KJV])
    And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the
    tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the
    clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
    (Matt 24:31 [KJV])
    And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather
    together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
    (Matt 24:37 [KJV])
    But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man
    (Matt 24:39 [KJV])
    And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming
    of the Son of man be.
    (Matt 24:42 [KJV]) Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
    (Matt 24:44 [KJV])
    Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.

    Based on those verses, which coming was Jesus referring to?
    – His Coming in the Clouds (for His Saints or to get His Saints), no touch-down or is it- His Coming (with His Saints) for the Millennial Reign (touched down)

    Please consider these valid questions. May the Holy Spirit guide us intoall truth.

  3. He teaches heresy…Historicism is the true interpretation of Revelation and Daniel. Catholic Jesuit Francisco Ribira came up with this Futurist teaching as a counter to the Reformation. Futurism and Preterism were both counters to the Reformation, Catholic teachings. Do research, this futurism is heresy.

  4. In context..he was teaching..most see the church appear in 2 chapter of Acts two..why..were not the apostles and early disciples part of the church..the apostles teachings was the doctrine of Christ….yes Matt speaks to Jews..but the reality today..Jews and Christians live in Israel..therefore..whatever happens to Israel..will also affect the church at Jerusalem..so Matt..I believe is also for the church..where it applies…
