The brightness of our revelations depends upon the correctness of our doctrines, our building blocks. God is Thought (Thought is Life), God is Love, God is a Spirit, the eternal Spirit from which all things were created. You are a part of His Spirit (Eccl 12:7); you are either an eternal Spirit, or an eternal spirit.



(Mat 12:25)  And Jesus knew their thoughts [Gk: deliberations /// ponderings], and said unto them, Every kingdom [nation] divided against itself [e.g., Democrats and Republicans] is brought to desolation [Gk: laid waste: come to naught]; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand [Gk: continue]:


(Mat 24:1-3)  And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples [Gk: learners, pupils (students)] came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple [“ye are the temple of God” 1 Cor 3:16]. 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 [stones symbolize the hard hearts of men)], that shall not be thrown down [Gk: to loosen down (disintegrate): destroyed, dissolved]. And as he sat upon the mount of Olives [fig., the throne of all saved mankind], the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign [Gk: indication] of thy coming, and of the end of the world [Gk: aion; this world] [that is currently under Satan’s dominion (2 Cor 4:4)]?




(Mat 24:4-14)  And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed [Gk: beware] that no man [Gk: person] deceive [Gk: cause you to roam (from safety, truth, or virtue): to go astray, err, seduce] you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ [Gk: anointed]; and shall deceive [Gk: cause you to roam (from safety, truth, or virtue): to go astray, err, seduce] many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled [Gk: be not frightened]: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines [Gk: (severe) hunger], and pestilences [Gk: plagues (diseases)], and earthquakes [Gk: commotions (in the air and on the ground)], in divers [Gk: many] places. All these are the beginning of sorrows [Gk: pangs or throes, esp. of childbirth: pains]. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted [Gk: pressured: persecuted, tribulation], and shall kill you [martyr you, “the fifth seal” Rev 6:9-11; 7:1-17] [1]: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake [i.e., for the name of Jesus Christ] [2]. And then shall many be offended [Gk: be entrapped, tripped up, stumble or enticed to sin], and shall betray one another, and shall hate [Gk: detest, esp. persecute] one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many [Gk: cause you to roam (from safety, truth, or virtue): to go astray, err, seduce]. And because iniquity [Gk: lawlessness, wickedness] shall abound [Gk: increase: multiply], the [“lukewarm” Rev 3:16] love of many shall wax cold [3]. But he that shall endure [Gk: stay under, bear trials, persevere, take patiently, suffer] unto the end, the same shall be saved [Gk: delivered or protected: healed, made whole] [i.e., raptured]. And this gospel [Gk: good news] of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

1.     martyr = Dict: a person who chooses to suffer or die rather than give up his faith or principles; a person tortured or killed because of his beliefs.

2.     (Luke 21:17-19)  And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake. But there shall not an hair of your head perish. In your patience possess ye [“win the true life of” Amplif.] your souls.

3.     (Rev 3:16)  So then because thou art lukewarm [“stony ground” Mark 4:5], and neither cold nor hot, I will spue [Gk: vomit] thee out of my mouth.



(Mat 24:15-22)  When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation [perhaps symbolized by a female president (1 Tim 2:12); imagine Hillary Clinton or like as president], spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea [Judah] flee into the mountains [from the incursion]: Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. And woe [Gk: grief] unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days [1]! But pray ye that your flight [from the incursion] be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day [i.e., travel restricted to approx. one mile]: For then shall be great [Gk: greatest (+ fear)] tribulation [Gk: pressure: affliction, anguish, persecution, trouble] [i.e., global nuclear warfare], such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall [again] be. And except those days [i.e., the 3 years of Great Tribulation] should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved [Gk: delivered or protected: healed, preserved, made whole] [i.e., those that are “alive and remain” 1 Thes 4:17]: but for the elect's [Gk: selected: chosen] sake [only,] those days shall be shortened [by the “rapture”] [2].

1.     (Luke 21:23)  But woe unto them that are with child [pregnant], and to them that give suck [Gk: (the nipple); suckle], in those days! for there shall be great distress [Gk: constraint] [Dict. synonym: restraint, restriction, limitation, control; Antonym: freedom] in the land, and wrath [Gk: vengeance] upon this people [but not upon us for we shall have been “raptured,” i.e., risen].

2.     Commentary: an “overlap”: As an earlier type and shadow of the Great Tribulation period, the believing Israelites living in the land of Goshen suffered only the first three plagues (water to blood, frogs, lice) of the ten plagues that God put upon the non-believing Egyptians. But the Israelites did not suffer the last seven increasingly severe plagues, i.e., their tribulation (cleansing) period was shortened.


(Mat 24:23-25)  Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs [Gk: miracles] and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive [Gk: cause you to roam (from safety, truth, or virtue): to go astray, err, seduce] the very elect [Gk: selected: chosen]. Behold, I have told you before [i.e., you have been warned].



(Mat 24:26-28)  Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west [i.e., everywhere instantly, “in the twinkling of an eye” 1 Cor 15:52]; so shall also [i.e., in that same way shall] the coming of the Son of man be. For wheresoever the carcase is [Gk: lifeless body: corpse], there will the eagles [the Saints] be gathered together [up in the air]. [1]

1.     (Isa 40:31)  But they that wait upon [a] the LORD shall renew [b,c] their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

a.      (Luke 21:19)  In your patience possess ye [gain ye] your souls [“true life” Amplif.].

b.     (Psa 51:10)  Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew [Heb: rebuild: repair] a right [Heb: perfect] spirit within me [rebuild me into the perfect angel in Heaven that I used to be].

c.      (Rom 12:2) And be not conformed to [the patterns of] this world: but be ye transformed [Gk: “metamorphose,” changed, transfigured] by the renewing of your mind [Gk: thoughts], that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.



(Mat 24:29-31)  Immediately after the tribulation of those days 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 [i.e., the “sixth seal” Rev 6:12-17]: And then shall appear the sign [perhaps the cross] of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the [unsaved] tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming [i.e., Jesus Christ’s second advent] in the clouds of [Saints, i.e., all of the saints previously “raptured” shortly after the beginning of the Great Tribulation, “raptured” men who are now restored good angels (Rev 19:10; 22:9) returning from] heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together [the harvest of] his elect [i.e., “the first resurrection” Rev 20:5,6] from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
