7 Truths of Matthew 24

1 Peter 2-5 iconWe should never commence the building of our spiritual house without first building a solid foundation, the prophecies in the books of Gods Holy Word all come together and climax in Revelation, but revelation cannot be understood without Daniel as they are interwoven, and Matthew 24 is likewise indelibly intertwined well. The reason Matthew 24 is so important to us is that it represents present truth, the talk that Jesus had with His disciples referred to their generation, as well as to our generation and it gives very clear and distinct warnings for our time, and we must study and search prayerfully to resolve these truths. A sound understanding of this chapter will also be of great benefit with our studies on the seven thunders.Secrets unsealedPastor Stephen bhor presents an excellent study in the videos attached to this page where he brings to light 7 Truths of Matthew 24. Please take the time to watch these as they will give you a real boost with your growth in Christ and understanding of the prophecies in Gods Word.  Matthew 24
I believe there is a principle in Bible prophecy which Jesus teaches us in Matthew 24 that explains many difficult prophecies in Daniel and Revelation. This is what I see as the type and antitype of prophecy principle.
The twenty-fourth chapter of Matthew is presented to me again and again as something that is to be brought to the attention of all. We are today living in the time when the predictions of this chapter are fulfilling. Let our ministers and teachers explain these prophecies to those whom they instruct. Let them leave out of their discourses matters of minor consequence, and present the truths that will decide the destiny of souls. {GW 148.2}  Matthew 24

Daniel-Revelation-Logo-2-1-640x320The perils of the last days are upon us, and in our work we are to warn the people of the danger they are in. Let not the solemn scenes which prophecy has revealed be left untouched. If our people were half awake, if they realized the nearness of the events portrayed in the Revelation, a reformation would be wrought in our churches, and many more would believe the message. We have no time to lose; God calls upon us to watch for souls as they that must give an account. Advance new principles, and crowd in the clear-cut truth. It will be as a sword cutting both ways. But be not too ready to take a controversial attitude. There will be times when we must stand still and see the salvation of God. Let Daniel speak, let the Revelation speak, and tell what is truth. But whatever phase of the subject is presented, uplift Jesus as the center of all hope, “the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright and morning Star.” {TM 118.1}  Matthew 24

 Matthew 24

Matthew 24Christ upon the Mount of Olives rehearsed the fearful judgments that were to precede His second coming: “Ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: . . . Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows” [Matt. 24:6-8]. While these prophecies received a partial fulfilment at the destruction of Jerusalem, they have a more direct application in the last days.–Testimonies for the Church, vol. 5, p. 753 (1899).We are not now able to describe with accuracy the scenes to be enacted in our world in the future, but this we do know, that this is a time when we must watch unto prayer, for the great day of the Lord is at hand. –Selected Messages, book 2, p. 35 (1901).

In the annals of human history, the growth of nations, the rise and fall of empires, appear as if dependent on the will and prowess of man; the shaping of events seems, to a great degree, to be determined by his power, ambition, or caprice. But in the Word of God the curtain is drawn aside, and we behold, above, behind, and through all the play and counterplay of human interest and power and passions, the agencies of the All-merciful One, silently, patiently working out the counsels of His own will.–Prophets and Kings, pp. 499, 500 (c. 1914).

Minds that have been given up to loose thought need to change. . . . The thoughts must be centered upon God. Now is the time to put forth earnest effort to overcome the natural tendencies of the carnal heart.–Maranatha, p. 243.  Matthew 24
