MATTHEW 24:27

 

MATTHEW 24:27 For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.

 

JESUS/YESHUA IS TEACHING HIS DISCIPLES ABOUT WHAT TO WATCH FOR AT HIS SECOND COMING. OF COURSE, WE REALIZE THAT THIS TEACHING WAS REALLY FOR OUR OWN BENEFIT, AS HE WOULD NOT BE RETURNING IN THEIR GENERATION. RATHER, HIS RETURN WOULD OCCUR DURING THE GENERATION IN WHICH THE SIGNS HE DESCRIBED WOULD BE OCCURRING, WHICH IS THE TIME WE ARE IN NOW.

HE EXPLAINED MANY THINGS. THERE WOULD BE WARS WITHIN COUNTRIES, BETWEEN NATIONS. THERE WOULD BE FALSE PROPHETS OF VARIOUS SORTS. THERE WOULD BE INCREASE KNOWLEDGE AND ALL MANNER OF PERSECUTION OF GOD’S PEOPLE. THERE WOULD A MULTIPLICATION OF NATURAL DISASTERS, EVERYTHING FROM EARTHQUAKES TO TSUNAMIS, AND MANY OTHER THINGS.

BUT AS THINGS BEGIN TO GET VERY CLOSE TO THE TIME, THERE WOULD BE OTHER SIGNS. FALSE CHRISTS WOULD ARISE; AND PEOPLE WOULD BEGIN TO IDENTIFY INDIVIDUALS AS CHRIST IN VARIOUS ROLES AND LOCATIONS. SO JESUS/YESHUA IS CLARIFYING THAT NO ONE WILL BE ABLE TO MISTAKE HIS APPEARANCE BECAUSE THERE WILL BE FLASHES OF LIGHTNING, AS HE IS SPOTTED COMING THROUGH THE CLOUDS. IT WILL NOT BE POSSIBLE TO MISTAKE WHO HE IS; SO THERE IS REALLY NO REASON FOR ANYONE TO BE DECEIVED.
