(Mat 24:1-3)  And Jesus went out, and departed [a foreshadowing of the future?: 2 Thes 2:6,7] from the temple [“your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost” 1 Cor 6:19]: and his disciples came to him for to show him the buildings of the temple [King Herod’s beautiful and majestic reconstruction of Solomon’s temple]. 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 [“Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it:” Psa 127:1]. And as he sat [in teaching mode] upon the mount of Olives [issuing forth olive oil out of His mouth; a symbol of the Holy Spirit], 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 [Gk: aion; this world vs. kosmos – the universe (Mark 16:15)]?

1.      (Mark 13:1-4)  And as he went out of the temple, one of his disciples saith unto him, Master, see what manner of stones [NKJV “you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house” 1 Pet 2:5] and what buildings are here! And Jesus answering said unto him, Seest thou these great buildings? there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down [Gk: demolished]. And as he sat upon the mount of Olives over against [Gk: directly opposite] [opposing] the temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew asked him privately, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign when all these things shall be fulfilled?

2.      (Luke 21:5-7)  And as some spake of the temple, how it was adorned [Gk: decorated, garnished] with goodly stones and [precious] gifts, he said, As for these things which ye behold [with your eyes – sight: “(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)” 2 Cor 5:7], the days will come, in the which there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down [strong declaration of “intent”]. And they asked him, saying, Master, but when shall these things be? and what sign will there be when these things shall come to pass?




(Mat 24:4-8)  And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you [THE WHITE HORSE OF STRONG DELUSION]. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars [THE RED HORSE OF WAR]: see that ye be not troubled [Gk: frightened]: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation [Gk: race] shall rise against nation, and kingdom [Gk: realm] against kingdom: and there shall be famines [THE BLACK HORSE OF FAMINE], and pestilences [THE PALE HORSE OF DEATH], and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.

1.      sorrow = Gk: a pang or throe, esp. of childbirth:--pain, sorrow, travail /// grief (as dejecting):--sorrow.



(Rev 6:1)  And I saw when the Lamb [of God, Jesus Christ] opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts [Gk: zoon; an animal] saying, Come and see.  (Rev 6:2)  And I saw, and behold a white horse [the power of “strong delusion” 2 Thes 2:11]: and he that sat on him [Satan – the counterfeit Christ] had a bow [but no arrows]; and a crown [versus “many crowns” Rev 19:12] was given unto him: and he went forth conquering [Gk: to subdue: overcome, prevail, get the victory] [in the present], and to conquer [Gk: to subdue: overcome, prevail, get the victory] [in the future]. (Rev 6:3,4)  And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see. And there went out another horse that was red [war, a consequence of strong delusion]: and power was given to him that sat thereon [a demon, fallen angel, unclean spirit] to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.  (Rev 6:5,6)  And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse [famine, a consequence of war which is a consequence of strong delusion]; and he that sat on him [a demon, fallen angel, unclean spirit] had a pair of balances [weighing scales] in his hand. And I heard a voice [of the Holy Spirit] in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny [a man’s wages for one day’s labor], and three measures of barley for a penny [barley was less expensive than wheat because it was esteemed rougher and of poorer nutritional quality, and perhaps more plenteous as well; barley was also fed to the animals as grain fodder]; and see thou hurt not [the restraining influence of the Holy Spirit (2 Thes 2:6)] the oil and the wine [symbols of the Holy Spirit; the anointing and the Word: Luke 22:20; Holiness]. (Rev 6:7,8)  And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. And I looked, and behold a pale [Gk: greenish] horse [an indicator of gangrene, i.e., pestilence, a consequence of famine which is a consequence of war which is a consequence of strong delusion]: and his name that sat on him was Death [not a fallen angel now, but the concept of the culmination of their evil works], and Hell followed with him [a legally correct and directly consequential truism of death for all unsaved men]. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts [Gk: therion; a dangerous animal:--(venomous, wild) beast] [i.e., unsaved men] of the earth [past, present, and future].




(Mat 24:9-14)  Then [during that time, this is what will happen] shall they deliver you up to be afflicted [Gk: pressure:  tribulation], and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. And then shall many be offended [Gk: stumble: enticed to sin, apostasy], and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity [Gk: unrighteousness] [lawlessness] shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end [Gk: to stay under, i.e. remain; i.e. bear (trials), persevere: abide, (take) patient (-ly), suffer, tarry behind], the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world [accomplished through the Internet] for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.



(the birth of the children of God; the birth of the man child; the birth of the one body of Christ)

(Mat 24:15-28)  When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place [my personal interpretation: This may refer to a woman acting as the High Priest standing, having usurped dominion and authority from man, and presiding over a one-world religion. There is not one women (“the weaker vessel” 1 Pet 3:7) priest in the Bible], (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: 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 unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened [we may correctly infer then, that the elect will still be here during the great tribulation]. 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 show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before. 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; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For wheresoever the carcase is [the empty dead body; the husk], there will the eagles be gathered together [eagle saints arise: Isa 40:31; 66:8: the birth].

1.      Commentary: The Pulpit Commentary = “No earthly considerations must keep the awakened soul from fleeing at once to Christ. Flee into the mountains, to the clear and lofty height of communion with God, into fellowship with Christ. Christians must flee from the world which passeth away to the city of God which abideth for ever.” [some of us are spiritually fleeing now, seeking God’s face]

2.   (Isa 66:7,8)  Before she travailed [in childbirth], she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a man child. Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.

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