4-51 Prophecy. Particular.
Matthew 24:1 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple:
(The sacred enclosures. Thus marking this [see Mark 13:1] as the 2nd of the 2 prophecies: The former [Luke 21] being spoken "in the Temple")
and His disciples came to Him for to shew Him the buildings of the temple.
(These consisted of the courts, halls, colonnades, towers, and "wings". In Luke 21 "some" spoke of its adornment with goodly stones and gifts.)
2 And Jesus said unto them, "See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down."
(Antichrist sets himself up in Jerusalem at the sixth trump. At the seventh trump not one stone will be left standing upon another. Jesus is going to clean house.
Many so-called critics show their ignorance when they tell us that this event happened when The Roman General Titus came against Jerusalem in 70 A.D., and destroyed the city. However one of the points of interest of all tours to Jerusalem is the wailing wall. This is wall that stands as the only part of Jerusalem that was left of old Jerusalem, at it's destruction.
Jesus prophecy in verse two tells us that "there shall not one stone upon another," and that condition has not happened yet. All of the stones of the temple will be turned to dust, at that end of this earth age. Zechariah 14 gives us a profile of how Jerusalem will be, and the events that shall transpire at that time. When Satan has taken his seat in Jerusalem, fulfilling the role of the Antichrist.)
3 And as He sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto Him privately,
(Luke 21 was spoken publicly.)
saying, "Tell us,
-3. DISCIPLES COME TO ASK.
-3-. 1st Question. WHEN shall these things [v2] be?
-3-. 2nd Question. WHAT the sign of Your coming?
-3. 3rd Question. WHAT [the sign] of the consumption of the Age?
when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of Thy coming,
(An expression for the arrival or the visit of the king or the emperor. Also of other persons in authority, or of troops.)
and of the end of the world?"
(= meeting together of all that marks the consummation of the age. See 4:9.
Jesus went to great detail of what the events and signs would be just before His second advent, that would mark the end of this flesh age.)
24:4-25:26. PROPHECY. PARTICULAR.
24:4-6. Answer to the 1st Question.
7-28. Answer to the 2nd Question.
24:29-25:26. Answer to the 3rd Question.
24:4-6. ANSWER TO THE 1ST QUESTION.
4. Warning. The beginning.
5. Many Antichrists.
-6. Rumors of Wars.
6-. Warning. Not the end.
4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, "Take heed that no man deceive you.
(The deception that destroys comes from the traditions of men and false doctrine. It will come from the mouth of antichrist. Do you believe them or the Word of God?)
5 For many shall come in my name, saying, 'I am Christ;' and shall deceive many.
(How can you make sure you are not deceived? You check it out in God's Word, and the Strong's Concordance with Hebrew and Greek numbered dictionaries are a good place to start. Many ministers teach traditions that just don't check out what Christ said. Though their intentions are good, their doctrine will cause you to be deceived. It is your soul that is at stake here. What value do you place upon your soul.
There are many that will put on the robe of the minister, and call themselves preachers. There will be many different denominations at that time, and many different forms of fellowships. But again, What was the first warning? Be careful, don't let them deceive you.
Remember that it was the religious community that brought about the crucifixion of Christ. It was the religious community that stole form the people, and rejected Christ with the strongest voice, and even to this day they reject teaching His Word chapter by chapter and verse by verse. There are some that do teach the right way though.
Most churches today though, teach the traditions of their forefathers, and not the Word of God. They make void the Word of God by their doctrines.)
6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars:
(What is the opposite of war? Antichrist comes in peaceably. When you begin to hear of world peace, you want to get your head out of the sand and pay close attention.)
see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
(Gr. telos, this means the beginning, not the end. The many "Christs" would be the very 1st sign. See 1 John 2:18. Its going to happen. It is binding. It's set in concrete. So don't get anxious. Read Prov. 4. It is no fluke. We have a Creator. He was lonesome. He created mankind, His children for His pleasure. He's real. How can we tell He's real? In part because of the one word DEO. Every time it has been used in the past, it has come to pass exactly as it was written. The will of God.)
7-28. ANSWER TO THE SECOND QUESTION.
7,8. The Tribulation. The birth-pangs. Read this with Mark 13:8, Luke 21:10,11.
9-14. Tribulation. General. Read this with
15-20. The 2nd Sign. Mark 13:9-22
21-28. The Great Tribulation. not Luke 21.
7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:
(Quoted from Isa. 19:2)
and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
(Amos wrote of this famine that shall come in the end times. Remember back in verse four when we were warned against people deceiving us? In Amos 8:11; "Behold, the days come, saith the Lord God, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, But of hearing the words of the Lord:" The famine is not for bread, it is for the truths of God's holy Word. God's truths are becoming deluded down where what is taught is an outright lie. The absolutes of the Commandments and being shaded by the scripture lawyers, the same as happened with the scribes and Pharisees.
Major earthquake intervals are now weekly in the world, where in the past there were centuries between these events. These quakes are now even happening where they are completely unexpected.)
8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
9-14. TRIBULATION. GENERAL.

9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.
(It would be spiritual death for the elect to bend a knee before antichrist. Those of you with eyes to see and ears to hear know that your purpose is to be delivered up and affliction goes along with that. Don't ever pray for the affliction to be removed. Pray for the strength to endure the affliction. God will always give the elect what they need to accomplish His will.)
10 And then shall many be offended,
(quoted from Isa. 8:15)
and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
(This hatred comes because of their beliefs and their religion. When you tell your relatives that this Antichrist is a fake, you will be branded as a blasphemer, right from the start. They will look to Satan as their savior, because their ministers have taught them to do so. They are ignorant of the truth, they did not study to know the truth, but accepted the false doctrines of demons as the truth.
The church world today is looking for someone to fly them away, and Satan will give them the flight of their life)
11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
(Think of all those ministers that preach the rapture theory. Every last one of them are false prophets. They give you hope where there is no hope, and they make you vulnerable to going after the first Christ to arrive on earth, and that one is Satan, the Antichrist. Jesus is warning His disciples, though He is addressing the twelve, the message is directed to those that are living in the time of the end, to our generation. Almost all of the so-called prophets of our day are looking for this antichrist to appear as one of the men on the earth today, and they have no idea in the world that it will be Satan in all his supernatural being and powers.
Jesus said there would be false prophets, they shall rise and deceive many. Friend you shall be here and face Satan, whether you like it or not. Jesus is making this a fact. You will either face and know exactly who he is, the fake and false Christ; or you will think him to be Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God. This knowledge is what Jesus calls, "the seal of God in their foreheads". Your brain is in your forehead and that is what you use to think and store knowledge.
Revelation 9:4; "And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads." You will know the difference between the two Christ, or God will turn you over to Satan to be deceived. It is your soul at stake here.)
12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
(The "iniquity", is "lawlessness" of turning away from God's Word. It will multiply because of the apostasy, or falling away from God's Holy Word. The love of family members and friends shall "wax cold" or turn against those within their own family, or friendship because of their refusal to accept Satan, the Antichrist as the true Christ.)
13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
(God's elect are destined to endure to the end, and not be deceived by the Antichrist. They know the Word of God, and that the false Christ will come first.)
14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
(In other words, when one of us, the elect, is delivered up to give account of why he or she will not submit to Satan the Antichrist, without premeditating, the message will be broadcasted throughout the world. Some of you have know that you have had a destiny and a purpose since you were a child. That there was more to God's Word than you have been taught, in the simplicity in which Christ Himself brings it forth. Jesus Christ is telling you that you will be here, with your gospel armor on and in place, to stand against the fiery darts of Satan.)

15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation,
(Ref. to Dan. 12:11. See also Dan. 9:27; 11::31; 12:11. Used as the equivalent for a special idol. Deut. 7:26. 1 Kings 11:7. 2 Kings 23:13. Cp. 2 Thess. 2:4.)
(That which brings on God's desolating judgment)
by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)
(The Holy place is the place that the temple sits, and this is the subject for the very first, when the buildings of the temple were observed by the disciples, and the question of what it would be like at His second advent. This is where the desolation [Satan, the Antichrist] shall sit on mount Zion, making his abominations, or statements that he is the Christ.
The world will be deceived when Satan claims himself to be Christ, for he does have supernatural powers, and he will use them to to draw the peoples of the world to come to peace. He will say, I am Jesus whom ye have been waiting for, and I have come to bring peace to the world, and the world will be brought to peace and prosperity by Satan, the Antichrist.
How did Jesus tell us His coming would be at the second advent? Revelation 19:15, 19 tell us how Jesus will come back to earth, at His second coming:
Revelation 19:15; "And out of His mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it He should smite the nations: and He shall rule them with a rod of iron: and He treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God."
Jesus will come with a sharp sword to smite the nations of the earth. He will subdue them like grapes in the winepress, not some sweet mushy talk of peace. Jesus shall rule over them with a rod of Iron, because at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, is the start of the Millennium age. That thousand year age kingdom of Christ will be a time of learning and discipline, there will be no flesh on earth, for all will be changed to their incorruptible bodies, and will be of full sound mind, and capable of learning and understand what is being taught them.)
16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:
(Judea is that land or country that Jerusalem was the capital of. Today we would call it the nation of Israel, on both sides of the Jordan river. It is the place where the major peace treaty is being signed, and the largest part of world conflict is over. If you are in that nation, Jesus is telling you to flee into the "mountains", or nations of the world, but get out of there. This is not when Titus of Rome walked in, but it is the start of the Great Tribulation, when God Himself shall rain down on that city of Jerusalem, and the nation. God is letting you know exactly where not to be, at His second coming.)
17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:
(When you see him coming, get out. There isn't event time to grab your toothbrush, for the time is short, when you see this come to pass.)
18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.
19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
("Woe" means that something real bad is about to happen. This verse has nothing to do with childbirth, or the caring for your children. Jesus is not going against the teachings of Almighty God, but this is directed to another marriage, a spiritual marriage. The purpose of this flesh age is so that each soul would pass through this earth age one time, and only one time. This was done so that each soul could make up his mind whether he would follow God or Satan.
Jesus is speaking in a spiritual sense about those that that become impregnated with the mark of the beast. That "Mark of the beast", is a mark of service that is hidden over a long period of time. We are to know this mark, by getting to know who the Kenites are, because when you do not know who they are, then your are taking "the Mark of the beast". By not knowing the Kenites, and what they do, you become deceived by them, and drawn into their service. This is taking the mark in your forehead, and in your right hand; as recorded in Revelation 13:15-18.
The bride of Christ is Christ church, made of all the members of the body of Christ. That is the bride of Christ, and today any person on the face of the earth can be a member of that bride of Christ. If you believe in Jesus Christ, and repented in Jesus name, you are a part of the bride of Christ. The husband then is Jesus Christ, and we are told to wait for His coming.
If you have taken on another husband before Jesus return to earth, then spiritually you become married to another husband, being Satan. Christ is bringing this spiritual lesson down to a level of emotions that we can understand. It means that they didn't wait on the true husband, and now, spiritually they stand with child by the wrong husband, and are feeding others [giving suck] the spiritual bad milk that draws them to Satan.
They are not virgins, Why? Because they are caring small children in a spiritual sense, and have become impregnated in their mind with the deceptions of Satan, the Antichrist. And they literally nourish along the work of Satan. This is the same as we saw in Revelation 13:15-18, receiving the "mark in your forehead, and in your right hand." The right hand refers to the fact that if you are in the world system, you will also will do the work of the world. We are living in that generation where many are going to be taught to worship Satan, right from their own Sunday school classes.)
20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:
(You harvest in summer and the fall, not the winter. Do you even know when the season is? Jesus said, ye fools, ye can look at the bank in the sky, and tell the signs of the weather, but you don't know by reading my Word, the signs of my coming.
Why not on the Sabbath? Because on the Sabbath, the only distance that you could travel was just short of one mile. This is not far enough, for Armageddon will take place on Mount Zion, for "Megiddo" means "the gathering place of the crowd, and that will be where the Antichrist rules from, and that is where the destruction will be.
What will happen in this battle? Zechariah 14 tells us what will happen, this is the place where Christ will come, and His feet will touch down on the mount of Olives, which is about a half mile out of the east gate, where the Antichrist will be ruling. There is an earthquake that will take place, that will split a trench, and clear the way clear through to mount Zion. The area will be turned to sand and leveled at this time.)
21-28. THE GREAT TRIBULATION.
21,22. The Great Tribulation. Beginning.
23. Warning. "If they shall say".
24-. False Messiah's and false prophets.
-24. Their object.
25,26. Warning. "If they shall say".
27,28. The Great Tribulation. The End.
21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
(Quoted from Dan. 12:1.
This is not the tribulation of God for there are two tribulations, and this tribulation is the tribulation of the deception. This is the tribulation of the locust army, spoken of in the book of Joel. This locust army will so pervert the minds of all men on earth, that the truth of God word will be as a desolate wilderness. It is at this time that the Holy Spirit will speak through the elect, as recorded in Acts 2:6-8. Where when the faithful of Christ were together, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit of God. They left that room and entered the streets, and when they spoke to the multitude, "every man heard in his own language." This was Pentecost, and the Jews came from every part of the world, speaking all the languages of the world. This was not the turkey calling that is presented today, and it needed no interpreter.
As we read in the book of Joel, there will be a tribulation by this locust army that will come upon the whole earth, that will come from the north, and the destruction that comes upon them, you as one of God's elect have nothing to worry about. Why? Because at the coming of Christ, and the destruction of this locust army, you will be changed into your spiritual body, and it will have no affect upon you. Fear of this time is caused by ignorance, for if you know of God's love for His own, you would know that not a hair on your head will be hurt.
This is the tribulation then of the false Christ. This is the order now that Christ shall draw us back to Himself.)
22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
("Those days" are the days of this tribulation. If God did not shorten the time and reign of the Antichrist, no man in the flesh body would be spiritually saved, and not deceived by Satan the Antichrist. Daniel told us in Daniel 9:27 that this time of the Antichrist, the desolator, was one half of one week of years. That is one half of seven years, and it has been shortened to five  months.
Revelation 9:5; "And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man." God lets us know not only that it will be five months, but that it will be specific five months. It will be the five months of the locust. May through September.
When someone tells you that you will fly out of here, and not be on the earth where this happens, they just show you their stupidity, and lack of the knowledge of God's Word. See them for what they are, they are preparing you for the onslaught of the locust army of fallen angels, and Kenite teaching. Do you take their word over the Word of Almighty God.
Ephesians 6 tells us the purpose that God's elect will be on earth, and it will be to fight against Satan, and those wicked spiritual powers. That is why you need the spiritual armor on and in place, for the warfare will be a spiritual battle, fought will words and ideas, it will be fought with the very word of God, for Satan will twist that Word, to make it a lie, when he and his forces use it against you.)
23 Then if any man shall say unto you, 'Lo, here is Christ, or there;' believe it not.
(Why? Because Jesus Christ doesn't return, until the seventh trump. If you worship anyone before then, you will be worshiping the antichrist. Jesus didn't say, "You don't need to worry about any of this, because you are going to be gone".)
24 For there shall
arise false Christs,
(the false Christ, Satan, will come 1st. No such thing as the "Rapture")
and false prophets,
(Teachers, preachers, "Reverends")
and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible,
(The condition involves no doubt as to its being impossible.)
they shall deceive the very elect.
(Heed the warning of Jesus Christ. Don't allow them to deceive you. He's going to look like Jesus, but speak as the Devil. He will have supernatural power (Rev. 13:11-13). Don't allow him to deceive you. It wont happen, but it will test you. If you are still in the flesh body, he's a fake, because when does Christ return, we will all be turned into our spiritual bodies.)
25 Behold, I have told you before.
(God has told us many times before, in the prophesies of the Old Testament. Each prophet spoke as they were given them the words to speak. "Thus saith the word of the Lord," ; "The word of the Lord came unto me," and over and over as all the prophets spoke as God gave them utterance. Yet much of the church world calling themselves chose to disregard those teaching in the Old Testament.
If you are wondering what God is telling you to do, He has told you. Get your gospel armor on and get ready for the spiritual battle that is about to start. Stop pouting and get to studying. There is no fly away, there is no rapture, so get back to reality, and get ready for the battle.)
26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, 'Behold, He is in the desert;' go not forth: 'behold, He is in the secret chambers;'
(See 6:6. Luke 12:2,24)
believe it not.
(Every time you turn on the television you hear a new twist to these false prophets. They tell of all sorts of private secret things that God has revealed to them. Some tell of What God told them to tell you while in their closet this morning, and then they tell you something that is opposed to what is written in God's Word. They are getting messages alright, but the spirit is not the Spirit of God, and their messages are lies, if it doesn't correspond with the Word of God. "Believe it [their message] not." What is going to happen, will happen exactly as it is written.)
27 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.
(Don't allow anyone to tell you Jesus Christ has returned, until the seventh trump sounds (1 Cor. 15:52). We will all be in our spiritual bodies at that time. It is that simple.)
28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
(See Job 39:30; which shows the true interpretation.
The word of "eagles", should be translated "vultures". The carcass are the spiritual dead, and these vultures of Satan, the Antichrist will feed on every spiritual dead person on the face of the earth.)
29-51 THE ANSWER TO THE 3RD QUESTION.
29,30. The Son of man. Shining forth. The 3rd Sign.
31. The gathering of the Elect (Israel).
32-41. Parables and Type. The Fig-tree, and Noah.
42-44. Warning. "Watch therefore".
45-51. Servants. Parable.
29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days
(No room therefore for a Millennium before His coming. It must follow it.)
shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
(See Isa. 13:10,11; 34:4. Probably referring to the evil "principalities and powers" of Eph. 1:21; 6:12. Col. 1:16; 2:10,15)
30 And then shall appear the sign
(As asked for in v.3)
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. (Quoted from Zech. 12:12.
This is after the tribulation of the deception, after the Antichrist ruled and claimed himself to be God, and after all the events of the first six seals are over; Then Jesus Christ, the Son of man will come to earth in the clouds of heaven, which are all those souls that have lived, died and gone to be with the Lord. Then the true Christ, the true Messiah, who is the Lamb of God that taketh away the sin of the world, will come and claim His own, and not one moment before.)
31 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.
(Who "received the Word". Acts 2:41. 1 Thess. 2:13. Quoted from Deut. 30:4. See 1 Thess. 4:16,17.
This is the seventh and the last trumpet, and there will be no coming by Christ until that time, except the Spirit of God working within you. This is the time that the angels of God will go to every corner of the earth, and even to the heavens to gather the elect of God. Are you one of God's elect? Are you going to be in the field working for God, or wandering after the fake Christ?)
32-41. PARABLES AND TYPES.

32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:
(This lets us know that the generation of the end times begin in the year 1948. For both the good and the bad fig tree returned to Judaea and were placed there, as Jeremiah wrote in Jeremiah 24. That is the subject of Matthew 24.
Do you know why Eve used fig leaves to cover her private parts, or what she gave birth to? That is what the parable is all about. The bad figs are the Kenites, and Matthew 13 discusses this parable in detail. Jesus even explains it to His disciples in verses 36-43. The parable of the fig tree is "the parable of the tares of the field".)
33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
(When you see the Antichrist stand, and proclaim himself to be God, and you are still in your flesh body, and the sun, moon and stars are still in the sky, know that the coming of the True Christ is very near.)
34 Verily I say unto you, This generation
shall not pass, till
(Marking the uncertainty, which was conditional on the repentance of the nation. Note the 4 "tills" [10:23; 16:28; 23:39; 24:34], and cp. what is certain with what is uncertain.)
all these things be fulfilled.
(Referring specially to the 1st sign in v.4, in response to the 1st question in v.3; not the same word as in Luke 21:24, but the same as in v.32.)
35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My words shall not pass away.
(See Mark 9:32. The world of God is eternal. You are going to live by this in the eternity, if youíre there. Otherwise youíre going to be in a lake of fire anyways so it wonít make a whole lot of difference to you will it? Because youíre gone.)
36 But of that day and hour
(What hour? The Hour of Temptation.)
knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but My Father only.
(But again, He gives the parable of the fig tree directly before that and it does give the generation. So itís important that you understand that.)
37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
(The events leading up to the 2nd advent will be exactly as in the days of Noah prior to the flood. Well what was going on then? Well Heís going to tell us. Isnít it wonderful and what a teacher He is!)
38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage,
(Clay & iron. 10 supernatural kings. Youíre actually reading how it will be here on earth during that hour of temptation. You know very well that from Genesis 6 states that the fallen angels saw the daughters of Adam and that they were beautiful. And they came and took them to wife, seduced them, they were impregnated them, and children were born, and they were called geber by the nephilim. (see: Genesis chapter 6:1-5) And God searched and there was only one man that had a perfect generation; that word generation in the Hebrew, taken to the prime, is pedigree.)
until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
39 And knew not until the flood came,
(Symbolic of 5 month period. Rev. 9:4)
and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
(Many will be taken away by the flood that occurs prior to Christ's return. You can read in that same chapter of Revelation 12, a flood of lies coming from Satanís mouth that chases after those that try to follow Christ. Yes there will be another flood but not a flood by water but by lies and deception.)
(This means at the same time or just right after that and after you see these things happen right on earth.)
shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken,
(Taken by whom? Satan! Taken by the false Christ. How many sermons have been preached on this! And how many have said, ďOh praise Jesus, I want to be the one taken!Ē Well who are they taken by? By the son of perdition! The antichrist! The fallen angels! Do you want to be taken by them? Heís telling you about the hour of temptation. Are you intelligent enough not to even be tempted? Are you biblically illiterate or are you familiar with Godís word? They will be taken into his camp by deception. Pay attention to the subject - talking about deception!)
and the other left.
(These are the smart ones, remained to do God's work, not afraid of tests and trials, able to rebuke Satan.)
41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
(Same as above. Grinding was and is woman's work in the East, and is done in the morning. Christ Himself tells us in verse 26 of this chapter not to believe anyone that tells you that He is here or there. He [Satan] is the one doing the taking [by the way of that flood of lies as was stated 2 verses ago]. You want to join the team? Listen to the traditions of men and suffer. Stay in the field working and watching.)
42-44. WARNING. "WATCH THEREFORE".
42-. Warning. "Watch".
43-. Thief. Knowledge of.
-43. Thief. Action against.
44-. Warning. "Be ready".
42 Watch therefore:
(as in 1 Thess. 5:6 and 10 ["wake"].)
for ye know not what hour
(What hour? The hour of temptation.)
your Lord doth come.
(The hour of temptation precedes the very end of that hour of that 5-month period.)
43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
(If you know the hour of temptation you wonít be caught off-guard because that is the hour in which it will come.)
44 Therefore be ye also ready:
(The point is that no one that knows what hour a thief would come would be surprised and allow their house to be broken into. They would be ready.)
for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
(In other words with the false messiah already on earth not too many will be watching for the true Son of God. But you will be. Why? You know the truth. You know the hour of temptation.)
45-51. SERVANTS. PARABLE.
45-. The faithful and wise servant.
-45. His duties performed.
46. His lord's coming.
47. His reward.
48. The evil servant.
49. His duties neglected.
50. His lord's coming.
51. His punishment.
45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
(True Word of God. The faithful and wise servant gives his household the meat of God's Word so they are prepared for the season of antichrist. Noah might not have seemed to be a successful preacher to some; however, you can't argue that he wasn't faithful.)
46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
(Now what did that say? Did it say blessed is the servant that is flying out in the atmosphere? That isnít what He said. He said blessed is the servant that stays on the job in the field which is the earth, working. [See: Matt 13:38Öthe field is the earth]. Working what? Doing what was described as when you are delivered up allowing the Holy Spirit to speak, and to continue serving the Living God. And, blessed will be, only the person still doing Godís work, and cursed is the 1st taken. Cursed. In the bed of Satan, the jezebel of Revelation chapter 2 and 3. It declares there very clearly that sheíll hop into his bed.)
47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.
(Or property. In other words thereís going to be some teachers during the millennium. And it will be those that teach even now. It is that one that stays at the mill working that will be in charge during the millennium and teaching those that have allowed themselves to trip and fall into the deception of the false christ.)
48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, 'My lord delayeth his coming;'
49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;
(You can hear them, "He ainít coming. And donít worry if He does cause youíre gonna be gone anyway! You donít have to study Godís word. You donít have to understand the book of Revelation. Youíre not even going to be here so party it up spiritually friend! And rest easy youíre saved." Saved by who, antichrist?! Wake up!)
50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
(What hour? The hour of temptation, right at the close, that he is not aware of. Are you aware of the hour of temptation?)
51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
(Weeping and gnashing of teeth is like, ďOh Lord You donít understand, Iíve been a big time preacher here for You for many years. I, just got off track there with that rapture thing and Iíve led a lot of people to you Lord.Ē And Heís going to tell him, ďGet out of my sight! Get over there with the hypocrites, you hypocrite!Ē Sounds strong? Well, rather see you wake up now then wake up too late.)
