This interpretation of Matthew 24 is focused on the “end of the age” fulfillment of Christ’s prophecy, not the 70 A.D. destruction of the Temple or Bar Kokhba revolt that destroyed Israel as a nation until the 20th century.
3 Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age? (Mk. 13:4; Lk. 21:7)
“When will the destruction of the Temple be?” (Matt. 24:1-2). “What is the sign of the end of the age that will see your coming?”
The sign of the end of the age when Christ will soon arrive (Matt. 24:30) is the sign of “heaven opened” (Rev. 19:11). A terrifying “opening” will appear in the sky, perhaps lightning flashing around it (Mt. 24:27; Lk. 17:24). This is a “Gate of Heaven” through which Christ and His armies enter our Matrix.
11 Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war.
12 His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself.
13 He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.
14 And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses. (Rev. 19:11-14 NKJ)
Confirming this, a first century text written in Koine Greek the Didache or Teaching of the Twelve Apostles says:
And then the signs of the truth shall appear: first, a sign of an opening in heaven; then a sign of the sound of a trumpet; and the third sign, the resurrection of the dead. Now, not all of the dead but as was said, the Lord shall come and all the holy ones with him. Then the world will see the Lord coming upon the clouds of heaven.-Brannan, R. (Trans.). (2012). The Apostolic Fathers in English. Bellingham, WA: Lexham Press.
Back to the interpretation of Matthew 24:
4 And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you.
5 “For many will come in My name, saying, `I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many.
6 “And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
7 “For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.
8 “All these are the beginning of sorrows. (Mk. 13:5-8; Lk. 21:8-9)
Many false Christ’s appeared in the 1st and 2nd century, Simon bar Kokhba led Israel into total ruin. The Jews were expelled from Jerusalem and the entire city paganized in the 2nd century. Not until the Balfour Declaration in 1917 did the prophesied regathering of Jews in Israel begin (Lk. 21:24).
But Jesus was focused on the final False Christ, the end time “rider on a white horse” John saw in his apocalypse. Note He refers to the same global calamities (Mt. 24:7) listed to occur at the end of the age:
2 And I looked, and behold, a white horse. He who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer.
3 When He opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, “Come and see.”
4 Another horse, fiery red, went out. And it was granted to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth, and that people should kill one another; and there was given to him a great sword.
5 When He opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come and see.” So I looked, and behold, a black horse, and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand.
6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine.”
7 When He opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, “Come and see.”
8 So I looked, and behold, a pale horse. And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him. And power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth. (Rev. 6:2-8 NKJ)
This is that “man of sin” Paul prophesied would come. There are two phases to the apocalypse of the Antichrist “the Man of Lawlessness” (2 Thess. 2:3-4). He makes his appearance as an Assyrian Jewish Christian Evangelist named Adonikam. He works great signs and wonders. In Daniel 8:9 Antichrist is seen rising up in what once was the Seleucid Empire. I infer from the strong parallels Antichrist has with Antiochus Epiphanes his “ministry” will be in modern Turkey, near Syrian Antioch once capital of the Seleucid Empire, the city of Antakya today
As the “man of sin” this “Christ “condones everyone’s sin”. The apostate Church hails him as “the Christ”. That apostasy takes away the “Daily Sacrifice” of Christian praise (Heb. 13:15; Dan. 12:11) to the True God (Dan. 12:7, 11), starting the end time “week of seven years” “clock”.
When UFOs appear in the skies above every city, the world’s shaman, seers and prophets of every religion, proclaim them as the return of the “Elohim Designers” of life on earth.
Raëlism teaches that an extraterrestrial species known as the Elohim created humanity using their advanced technology. An atheistic religion, it believes that the Elohim have historically been mistaken for gods. It holds that throughout history the Elohim have created forty Elohim/human hybrids who have served as prophets preparing humanity for news about their ultimate origins. Among those listed as prophets are The Buddha, Jesus of Nazareth, and Muhammad, with Raël himself being the fortieth and final prophet. Raëlists believe that since the Hiroshima bomb of 1945, humanity has entered an Age of Apocalypse in which it is threatening itself with nuclear annihilation. It argues that humanity must find a way of harnessing new scientific and technological development for peaceful ends, and that once this has been achieved the Elohim shall return to Earth to share their technology with humanity and usher in a utopia.- Wikipedia
The “Ancient Alien Theory” “Big Lie” preached 24/7 by Social and Corporate Media, that arose from decades of global UFO spectacle, overwhelms any critical inquiry into the claims of the “Elohim”. All believe they will usher in the New World Order of “peace and safety” (1 Thess. 5:3). Any who question the motives of “the Elohim” will be hated, fired from their job, driven from the marketplace, and hunted for sport.
They are hailed as mankind’s only hope because the crisis management systems of the earth’s governments had been overwhelmed. Civil unrest, war, famine, pestilence, earthquake and the tsunamis far exceeded the earth’s capability to manage the chaos (Rev. 6:2-8; Lk. 21:25-26).
Satan the Dragon commander of the Nephilim demands a New World Order be created to manage the earth’s scarce resources. He makes Adonikam its Chancellor. This is that beastly Government John saw rising from the sea of spiritism, with a “Grecian” body (Dan. 7:6; 8:8-9; Rev. 13:1-2) out of the remnants of the ancient Byzantine Roman Empire (Dan. 7:7; 19-24; 9:26). It has ten horns or kings giving Adonikam their power (Dan. 2:44; 7:7; Rev. 13:1; 17:9-11).
The earth is converted. Everything called god or worshipped as God is rebelled against, the great falling away is here (2 Thess. 2:3-4). “Ancient Alien Theory” “scientific atheism” is the context of the “strong delusion” inspired by spiritism prophesied to come (2 Thess. 2:6-12).
So many “Christian” miracle workers become Beast Followers that Jesus makes special note of them pleading not to be cast into the Lake of Fire on Judgment Day. They claim to still have a personal relationship with Jesus, affectionately calling Him “lord lord”. Jesus rejects they ever did powerful works by His Holy Spirit as He never knew them:
22 “Many will say to Me in that day, `Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’
23 “And then I will declare to them, `I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’ – (Matt. 7:22-23 NKJ)
But I got ahead of myself. Five months before “Chancellor Adonikam” reveals he is the “Son of Destruction” (2 Thess. 2:3), the hybrid Elohim human (Gen. 6:4) “seed of Satan” (Gen. 3:15), the “spirits of demons” (Rev. 16:14) imprisoned in the Abyss since physically dying in the Flood of Noah’s Day (Gen. 7:21-23), are released:
1 Then the fifth angel sounded: And I saw a star fallen from heaven to the earth. To him was given the key to the bottomless pit.
2 And he opened the bottomless pit, and smoke arose out of the pit like the smoke of a great furnace. So the sun and the air were darkened because of the smoke of the pit.
3 Then out of the smoke locusts came upon the earth. And to them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.
4 They were commanded not to harm the grass of the earth, or any green thing, or any tree, but only those men who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads.
5 And they were not given authority to kill them, but to torment them for five months. Their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it strikes a man.
6 In those days men will seek death and will not find it; they will desire to die, and death will flee from them. (Rev. 9:1-6 NKJ)
They torture the “followers of the Man of Sin” who were reluctant to convert to new religion of the “Seed of Satan” “Son of Destruction.” They knew accepting the mark of the Beast results in eternal damnation. But they wanted to join in the fun, they just needed a little coercion to do what their reprobate hearts wanted to do. After five months, all of the Man of Sin’s “Christian followers” have adopted the “scientific Atheism” of the Elohim, and exalt Adonikam the Beast as God, even above the Elohim themselves (Dan. 11:36-37).
They are proud followers of the Beast, 666 becomes their insignia. The openly fight against YHWH God of the Bible, wrongly believing He is just another “faction” of the Elohim, and too weak to take on the combined forces of the Dragon Commander, and earth. See War between God and Satan
After 1,260 days counting from the time the Daily Christian Sacrifice was taken away by their apostasy (05493 סוּר cuwr MT; ἀποσταθῇ LXX Dan. 12:11) Adonikam abolishes the agreement he made with the Earth’s Religions, he terminates all sacrifice and offering to any God but himself (Dan. 9:27; Rev. 13:5). The Ten Horn Kings then burn the Harlot Babylon with fire, her global false religion no longer required (Rev. 19:17-18).
Until then the true Church was protected legally within Babylon the Harlot, haters not permitted to harm the Church. Spiritually she had separated herself from the apostate church worshipping God at His altar (Rev. 11:1). There God fulfilled the prophecy of Joel there would be and end time pouring out of His Spirit (Joel 2:28-29; Ac. 2:17-18). God’s two Witnesses, the two Olive trees supplying both The Lady of Zion and her “Daughter of Zion” the Church” (Rev. 12:1-6) with “Holy Spirit” (oil) lighting their lamps shining God’s truth (Rev. 11:4; Comp. Zech. 4:11-14).
With the destruction of religious Babylon, the power of the holy people is shattered:
Then I heard the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand to heaven, and swore by Him who lives forever, that it shall be for a time, times, and half a time; and when the power of the holy people has been completely shattered, all these things shall be finished. (Dan. 12:7 NKJ)
Adonikam was headquartered in Jerusalem, so when he ascends from the abyss of spiritism, 3 ½ years counting from the beginning of the end time “week”, his first act is to kill YHWH’s prophets Moses and Elijah (Rev. 11:7).
Then with zeal he begins the worldwide persecution of the Church with all true believers in Judea.
Back to the interpretation of Matthew 24:
9 “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake.
10 “And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another.
11 “Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many.
12 “And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.
13 “But he who endures to the end shall be saved.
14 “And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.
This is telescoped to the end. Jesus returns to detail events preceding the persecution of Christians in Matthew 24:15. Here main events are listed. The Great Tribulation of the Church begins, anyone still believing in Jesus name slated for death. The TARES among the Wheat will play the part of Judas, revealing the location of any hiding from the authorities. False prophets will prophesy false hope, lyingly claim Christ was already on earth gathering His forces for the great war. “Blessed is he” who “endures to the end”, he will be raptured 1,335 days counting from the beginning of the end time week (Dan. 12:12; Rev. 14:12-16).
Global gospel preaching is exponentially increased. The Holy Spirit filled Church is strong and doing exploits, not caring about their lives being put to death (Rev. 7:14; 12:11). They hack the cloud preaching the gospel worldwide (Rev. 14:6-7) and God’s angel joins them:
6 Then I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth– to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people–
7 saying with a loud voice, “Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water.” (Rev. 14:6-7 NKJ)
144,000 Jewish Martyrs for Christ (Rev. 7:3-10), Lady Zion Militant with her Daughter of Zion, a great crowd who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. (Rev. 7:14 NKJ):
and crying out with a loud voice, saying, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” (Rev. 7:10 NKJ)
Back to the interpretation of Matthew 24.
Jesus returns to the time when the “Man of Sin” morphs into the “Son of Destruction” abomination. He now standing where he ought not, in the Christian church the Temple of God:
15 “Therefore when you see the `abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place ” (whoever reads, let him understand),
16 “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.
17 “Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take anything out of his house.
18 “And let him who is in the field not go back to get his clothes.
19 “But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days!
20 “And pray that your flight may not be in winter or on the Sabbath.
21 “For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be.
22 “And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened.
“And from the time that the daily sacrifice is taken away, and the abomination of desolation is set up, there shall be one thousand two hundred and ninety days. (Dan. 12:11 NKJ)
The “abomination of Desolation” rose up in the Church at “midweek” (1,260 days; 42 months; 3.5 years). The “man of sin” “False Christ” Chancellor Adonikam morphed into the “son of Destruction” (2 Thess. 2;3) “seed of Satan” (Gen. 3:15) “Antichrist” (1 John 2:18).
However, the Beast required another 30 days to fully set up his “image”, or 1,290 days. This is a quantum computing Artificial Intelligence patterned in the Beast’s image, his personality. He is joined to it, therefore he and this network together are the “abomination that causes desolation”.
With it he runs the 666 membership only economy and it gives him near “god-like” omniscience and omnipotence. He is directly interfaced with it, so everywhere the internet is, he is. The AI filters out everything not important to “see and hear” in real time. With a thought Adonikam can kill anyone who tries to disconnect from the NET.
He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. (Rev. 13:15 NKJ)
[I skipped over the role of United States and Britain, the “Beast with two horns like a lamb”, how their “black ops technology” and power extended this abomination worldwide. For more on how they deceived the world to build this monstrosity see Britian and America in Prophecy]
Therefore, believers in Judea have 30 days to flee Judea. Believers flee to the mountains and the land of Jordan formerly known as the land of Edom, Moab and Ammon. The Antichrist Beast power in those lands is weak, and fleeing there are spared even after the Beast “King of the North” subdues the King of the South, Egypt (Dan. 11:40-43).
Christians are persecuted to near extinction. They are commanded not to resist, what will be will be:
9 If anyone has an ear, let him hear.
10 He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity; he who kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints. (Rev. 13:9-10 NKJ)
While the timing of the rapture is fixed (Dan. 12:12; Rev. 14:12-16), God will shorten the days the Elect Jews and Gentiles, who missed the Rapture, must wait untill Christ sends out His angels to gather them from the four corners of the earth (Dan. 12:1; Matt. 24:31). This happens before the bowls of God’s wrath are poured out upon the earth (Rev. 16:1). It happens just after the terrifying sign of the end of the age is seen in the sky, the Gate of Heaven through which Christ and His armies will come:
30 “Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
31 “And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. (Matt. 24:30-31 NKJ)
Back to the interpretation of Matthew 24:
23 “Then if anyone says to you,`Look, here is the Christ!’ or`There!’ do not believe it.
24 “For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.
25 “See, I have told you beforehand.
26 “Therefore if they say to you,`Look, He is in the desert!’ do not go out; or`Look, He is in the inner rooms!’ do not believe it.
27 “For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.
28 “For wherever the carcass is, there the eagles will be gathered together.
With the Elect Jew and Gentile greatly anticipating Christ’s return at any moment, they are targets for deception. Satan will inspire many false Christs and prophets do great signs and wonders hoping to deceive even the elect. They claim Christ already has arrived and is somewhere on the earth, “Here, There!”.
Don’t believe it, because every eye will see the return of Christ through the Gate of Heaven opening in the sky. Just as it is impossible a lightning storm happen unseen, so it is impossible every eye not see Christ’s return. Moreover, when Christ does return, He will slay the Beast, Satan’s Nephilim Kings of the East called Mighty Ones, and their armies at Armageddon. There the carrion birds like eagles will be feasting:
17 Then I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the midst of heaven, “Come and gather together for the supper of the great God,
18 “that you may eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, both small and great.” (Rev. 19:17-18 NKJ)
Back to the interpretation of Matthew 24:
29 “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.
12 I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood.
13 And the stars of heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its late figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind.
14 Then the sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved out of its place.
15 And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains,
16 and said to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb!
17 “For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?” (Rev. 6:12-7:1 NKJ)
The rest of Matthew 24:32-44 requires no interpretation
Just before the first bowl of God’s wrath (Rev. 16:1) is poured out, God removes His remaining “assets” from the earth. All the Elect Jews and Gentiles who missed the rapture, but repented and believed in Jesus after seeing all these things, are now gathered by Christ’s angels to join Christ’s army in heaven.
Your people shall be volunteers In the day of Your power (Ps. 110:3-4 NKJ)
1 Then Deborah and Barak the son of Abinoam sang on that day, saying:
2 “When leaders lead in Israel, When the people willingly offer themselves, Bless the LORD!
3 “Hear, O kings! Give ear, O princes! I, even I, will sing to the LORD; I will sing praise to the LORD God of Israel.
4 “LORD, when You went out from Seir, When You marched from the field of Edom, The earth trembled and the heavens poured, The clouds also poured water;
5 The mountains gushed before the LORD, This Sinai, before the LORD God of Israel. (Jdg. 5:1-5 NKJ)
Christ will bring the redeemed with Him when He comes (1 Thess. 4:14).
All the events of the end time week of seven years “occur rapidly” within one generation, i.e., they “quickly take place”:
The revelation of Jesus Christ that God gave Him to show His slaves what must quickly take place. He sent it and signified it through His angel to His slave John (Rev. 1:1 CSB)
35 “Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.
36 “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only.
37 “But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.
38 “For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark,
39 “and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.
40 “Then two men will be in the field: one will be taken and the other left.
41 “Two women will be grinding at the mill: one will be taken and the other left.
42 “Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming.
[Coming with His angels who will gather His elect from the four corners of the earth before the Bowls of God’s wrath are poured out, just as Noah and his family were saved just before the Deluge slew everyone on dry land. Two women working in the field, one is Elect, the other not, therefore she is left. Etc.]
43 “But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into.
44 “Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.
45 “Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his master made ruler over his household, to give them food in due season?
46 “Blessed is that servant whom his master, when he comes, will find so doing.
47 “Assuredly, I say to you that he will make him ruler over all his goods.
48 “But if that evil servant says in his heart,`My master is delaying his coming,’
49 “and begins to beat his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunkards,
50 “the master of that servant will come on a day when he is not looking for him and at an hour that he is not aware of,
51 “and will cut him in two and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. (Matt. 24:3-51 NKJ)
