JESUS SPOKE ABOUT END-TIME EVENTS. His disciples asked Him: "Tell us, when shall these things be? and WHAT SHALL BE THE SIGN when all these things shall be fulfilled?" Luke reports: "...they asked Him, saying, Master, but when shall these things be? and WHAT SIGN WILL THERE BE when these things shall come to pass? Matthew's report is specific: "...Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be THE SIGN OF THY COMING, and of the END OF THE WORLD?" (Mar 13:3-4, Luk 21:7, Matt 24:3)
Jesus answered them and GAVE THEM THE SIGN: “When ye therefore shall see the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)...” Mark reported: “But when ye shall see the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand)” Luke's Report TELLS US PLAINLY what we're supposed to "UNDERSTAND": “And WHEN YE SHALL SEE JERUSALEM COMPASSED WITH ARMIES, THEN KNOW that the DESOLATION THEREOF is nigh.” The END-TIME ANNIHILATION of JERUSALEM IS THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION!! (Mat 24:15, Luk 21:20, Mar 13:14) ..... Let's TURN ON THE NEWS and see if armies are CURRENTLY surrounding Jerusalem?? --clark
Jesus Gave Instructions TO US Who Are Living in the Last Days!
Jesus Gave Instructions To Us Who Are Living in the Last Days!
(In “quotes” is Luke Chapter 21 KJV)
“And as some spake of the temple [Matthew 24:1 states: “buildings of the temple”], how it was adorned with goodly stones and gifts, he said,As for these things which ye behold, the days will come, in the which there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.”
Mark 13:2 says: “Seest thou these great buildings? there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.”Since Jesus spoke these words the utter desolation of these temple buildings has not yet occurred.Many of the original stones are currently still “left one stone upon another.”Take a look:
“And they [“the disciples”] asked him, saying, Master, but when shall these things be? and what sign will there be when these things shall come to pass?And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them.But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by.Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name's sake.And it shall turn to you for a testimony”
Mark 13:11 says: “take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost”.
“Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what ye shall answer:For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death.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 your souls [Matt 24:13 says “he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved”].And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh.”
Matthew and Mark reveal to us what Jesus was referring to when He prophesied this UTTER DESOLATION OF JERUSALEM (not one stone will be left upon another).It is called:
“THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION spoken of by Daniel the prophet” (“whoso readeth, let him understand:”Matt 24:15, Mark 13:14, & Dan 11:31 & Dan 12:11)
Jesus was asked: “what sign will there be when these things shall come to pass? He answered:
“...THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION spoken of by Daniel the prophet.”
Jesus then continued with His instructions to us latter day Christians/Israelites.What should we do when we see this “sign” ?:
“Then let them which are in Judaea[translates: “the kingdom of Judah”see *below for more explanation]flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it [the kingdom of Judah] depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto.For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people.”
Jesus is not telling us to prepare for a pre-tribulation rapture.He is telling us to:
FLEE TO THE MOUNTAINS!Jesus continues with His prophecy of these last days:
“And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. “
There will be a “rapture” of God’s people at the sounding of “THE LAST TRUMP”.Read about it in 1 Thes 4: 14-18 & 1 Cor 15: 51-58.
“And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh [the rapture].
And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees;When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand.So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand.Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.”
is the Kingdom of Judah?Judah
(the Jews) are in authority with the world banks/world power. When Jacob
blessed the 12 Tribes this was part of Judah's blessing/prophecy:
“The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver
from between his feet, until Shiloh [Jesus, the Lion of Judah!] come; and unto
him shall the gathering of the people be. (Gen:49-10)"
Judah was given authority to hold the scepter over the world’s
nations until Jesus returns.The Lord authorized
Judah’s descendants (the Jewish race) to be the influence over the nations in
leading them into God’s laws (see the 10 Commandments on our courthouse steps).
I believe the Federal Reserve (the Fed)
Chairman is the most powerful person in the political world.All of the World’s money-systems are
controlled and manipulated by him and his small group of governors (aka The
Federal Reserve Board). According to my
research at the time, when Obama took office, the entire Fed was Jewish.Currently (Nov. 22, 2012) four of these
Jewish Governors have “resigned” (Donald
L. Kohn, Kevin M. Warsh, Randall S. Kroszner, and Frederic S. Mishkin).I am finding out that researching the
ethnicity of Obama’s replacements is getting more-and-more difficult.But, even with Obama’s apparent disdain for
Israel, the Fed remains under Jewish control.Ben S. Bernanke is still Chairman of the Fed and
Janet L. Yellen is Vice Chairman. Both Bernanke and Yellen are Jewish.
Sometimes “Judea” simply
Kingdom of Judah.” We “which are in Judea” are citizens of countries which
are founded upon Judaea/Christian principles.According to Genesis 49:10 the Jews will hold the scepter and be our
lawgivers until Jesus returns and gathers Israel.As described in Revelation 7:5, this “gathering”
begins with Judah.
