Matthew 24
« on: October 03, 2015, 12:52:04 PM »
Matthew 24 is a continuation of Matthew 23 where Jesus pronounced woe upon the scribes and pharisees.

Matt 23:29  Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous,
30  And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.
31  Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets.
32  Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers.
33  Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?
34   Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city:
35  That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar.
36  Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation.
37  O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!
38  Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.
39  For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.


Notice that he said all the judgments for the sins of those who killed the prophets would fall on those who would fill up the sins of their fathers by murdering the sinless Son of God.  Their house, the temple would be left desolate.

Having said that, Jesus and his disciples went outside and the disciples admired the stones of the temple.  Jesus then made a statement:
Matt 24:2  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.
 It must have seemed a shocking statement to the disciples, so they asked a question:
3  And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be?
To which Jesus gave an answer:
34  Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.

A statement, a question, an answer.  Agreeing perfectly with the previous judgment pronounced in Matt 23. 35  That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar. and "36  Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation."

There were other questions and other answers but they were slightly 'Off Topic' as we would say on forums.  The question and answer was in  response to the original statement.

Mathew 24 does not deals with the Church but with the question that was asked by the disciples. It is based on that question and how it relates to Israel and the tribulation period and how it ends. It does not deal with the church and the rapture. CONTEXT!
