WHAT TIME IS IT?

TIME IS RUNNING OUT

Time is literally running out, and many will not be found “so doing when He returns”.

Remember:  These words are written to His disciples; those who say they are “Believers”!

Be Ready for His Coming 42 “Therefore be on the alert, for you do not know which day your Lord is coming. 43 “But be sure of this, that if the head of the house had known at what time of the night the thief was coming, he would have been on the alert and would not have allowed his house to be broken into. 44 “For this reason you also must be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not think He will.

45“ Who then is the faithful and sensible slave whom his master put in charge of his household to give them their food at the proper time? 46 “Blessed is that slave whom his master finds so doing when he comes. 47 “Truly I say to you that he will put him in charge of all his possessions. 48 “But if that evil slave says in his heart, ‘My master is not coming for a long time,’ 49 and begins to beat his fellow slaves and eat and drink with drunkards; 50 the master of that slave will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour which he does not know, 51and will cut him in pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”

Jesus answers His disciple’s (and all future disciple’s) question “Tell us, when will these things happen, and what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” in Matthew 24:4 through Matthew 24:28.

Then Jesus speaks these Words

Jesus puts the End of Days in perfect order when He utters these next Words.  (I will break these verses down separately so anyone can read and understand the sequence)

  1.  Matthew 24:29 But immediately after the tribulation of those days…”

We are given a clear sequence.  After explaining the Last Days series of tribulation events, Matthew 24:4 through Matthew 24:28, in sequence, Jesus says, “IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE TRIBULATION OF THOSE DAYS”.   He gives us the  details of the breaking of the tribulation seals ONE through FIVE (also found in Revelation chapter six) and then tells us what is coming NEXT.

2.  Matthew 24:29 …THE SUN WILL BE DARKENED, AND THE MOON WILL NOT GIVE ITS LIGHT, AND THE STARS WILL FALL from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.

This event is clearly described by Jesus in Revelation 6:12-16 as the breaking of the Sixth tribulation seal, marking the beginning of the final 7 years of the Great Tribulation, aka, Daniel’s 70th week or The Great and Terrible Day of the Lord.

3.  Matthew 24:30 “And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the SON OF MAN COMING ON THE CLOUDS OF THE SKY with power and great glory.

There are Bible commentors, teachers and ‘so-called theologians’ who say this is not the 2nd advent.  They are the blind leading the blind.  Jesus clearly says, in these verses, that…

(a) “the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn,

(b) and they will see the SON OF MAN COMING ON THE CLOUDS OF THE SKY with power and great glory.

This is the BEGINNING of the 2nd Advent of Christ which will include the following:

(a)  ‘Gathering of His elect’ (Matthew 24)

(b)  The Rapture (Matthew 24, Rev 7)

(c)  The Fourfold Hallelujah (Rev 19)

(d)  The Marriage of the Lamb, (Rev 19)

(e) Jesus as King and Warrior (Rev 19)

(f) Doom of the Beast and the False prophet (Rev 19)

4.  Matthew 24:31And He will send forth His angels with A GREAT TRUMPET and THEY WILL GATHER TOGETHER His elect from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other.

Please compare Matthew 24:31 with Revelation 7

Matthew 24:31And He will send forth His angels with A GREAT TRUMPET and THEY WILL GATHER TOGETHER His elect from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other.

Matthew 7:1-17 “After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth, so that no wind would blow on the earth or on the sea or on any tree. 2And I saw another angel ascending from the rising of the sun, having the seal of the living God; and he cried out with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was granted to harm the earth and the sea, 3saying, “Do not harm the earth or the sea or the trees until we have sealed the bond-servants of our God on their foreheads.”…

v9 After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could count, from every nation and all tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, and palm branches were in their hands; 10 and they cry out with a loud voice, saying,

“Salvation to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.” 11 And all the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures; and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, 12 saying,

“Amen, blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might, be to our God forever and ever. Amen.”

13 Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, “These who are clothed in the white robes, who are they, and where have they come from?” 14 I said to him, “My lord, you know.” And he said to me, “These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.”

It would seem that many of our churches in these last days are teaching denominational nonsense in order to placate the and distract God’s people, so they can build their own kingdoms “in the Jesus name”. 

Jesus has told us to “learn the parable from the fig tree: when its branch has already become tender and puts forth its leaves, you know that summer is near; so, you too, when you see all these things, recognize that He is near, right at the door.”  Therefore we are warned to be on the alert, for we do not know the exact  day your Lord is coming, and He warns that if you are not ready you will be left behind.  Additionally, He warns that those who drift will be assigned to the outer darkness where there will be ‘weeping and gnashing of teeth’.

Remember:  These words are written to His disciples; those who say they are “Believers”!

Matthew 24:45 “Who then is the faithful and sensible slave whom his master put in charge of his household to give them their food at the proper time? 46 “Blessed is that slave whom his master finds so doing when he comes.
