The First Century & End-Time Fulfillment
1 Then Jesus went out and departed from the temple, and His disciples came up to show Him the buildings of the temple.
2 And Jesus said to them, “Do you not see all these things? Assuredly, I say to you, not one stone shall be left here upon another, that shall not be thrown down.”
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?” (Matt. 24:1-3 NKJ)
Jesus answers three questions, the first “When will these things be” concerns the Temple’s destruction by Titus in 70 C.E. The wailing wall still standing today wasn’t part of the Temple. Jesus transitions from “the end is not yet” first century, to the end-time “sign” of His coming and “end of the age” occur, saying “For (1063 γάρ gar) nation will rise against nation”. In the end-time world wars occur, not just rumors of them as in the first century fulfillment. Confirming this is the transition to the end “false Christs” (Mt. 24:24; Rev. 6:2); World War (Mt. 24:7. Rev. 6:3-4); “famines (Mt. 24:7. Rev. 6:5-6); pestilence (Mt. 24:7. Rev. 6:7-8); earthquakes (Mt. 24:7. Rev. 6:12)” follows the Seal order.
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.
Many impostors and deceivers arose among the Jews, according to the testimony of Josephus (Antiq. 20, 8, 6; War, 2, 13, 5), before the city was destroyed. Thus, he mentions “that Egyptian” whom the chief captain, in the first alarm, supposed Paul to be (Acts 21:38); this man, like others, pretended that he could exhibit signs and wonders, and, as it was estimated, about 30,000 individuals were “deceived” by him. Others, who pretended respectively to be “some great one,” or “the great power of God,” like Simon the sorcerer, Theudas and Judas of Galilee, are already mentioned incidentally in Acts 5:36, 37; 8:9, 10. Our historical records have not preserved the name of any impostor who ventured, before the fall of the city, to announce himself publicly and without any reserve as the “very Christ” (John 7:26; Acts 9:22) or Messiah Himself; such pretensions were no doubt confined to the small circles of the initiated while the Jewish authorities retained their power.-Schaeffer, C. F. (1895). Annotations on the Gospel according to St. Matthew. (H. E. Jacobs, Ed.) (Vol. 2, p. 228). New York: The Christian Literature Co.
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. (Matt. 24:4-6 NKJ)
The Romans repeatedly threatened war against the Jews before the reign of Vespasian. The Lord possibly alludes to the wars of the Romans with the Parthians, to the enormous numbers of Jews slain in the Syrian and other cities (Jos. War., 2, ch. 18; Antiq. 20, ch. 3 and 4), to the wars of rival emperors, Otho, Vitellius, etc. Large portions of the Roman Empire were convulsed by war during the whole period preceding the fall of the city.-Schaeffer, C. F. (1895). Annotations on the Gospel according to St. Matthew. (H. E. Jacobs, Ed.) (Vol. 2, p. 229). New York: The Christian Literature Co.
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.
Unlike the first century, the world is at war in the end-time. As this is “the beginning of sorrows” it ends before all mankind is destroyed. After Chancellor Adonikam declares himself “Emperor/God” at mid-week, the Russian Turkey Iran alliance destroy rebuilt Babylon. The “king of the south” Egypt and allies also prepare to attack the Beast’s forces stationed in Israel. But Britain and America unite and join the Beast’s Grecian Roman Empire coalition. The combined technological and military prowess of Beast, Satan and his Nephilim, and Britain and America causes all opposing the Beast to sue for peace. The World now united under the Beast. “Peace and safety” are proclaimed (1Th. 5:3. Mt. 24:38-39) but all these are the beginning of sorrows.
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.
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. (Matt. 24:7-14 NKJ)
 The Granville Sharp rule confirms the conceptual unity of the “sign of your coming” with “the end of the age” but it does not follow the “sign” is the second coming itself because Jesus separates the events: “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.” (Mt. 24:30 NKJ). The “sign” will be an opening in heaven through which Christ and His holy angels enter our matrix (Rev. 19:10. Didache 16:6). Evidently the dimensional portal will be illuminated (at least in part) by lightning (Mt. 24:27).
 7, 1. (1) Now, as soon as the army had no more people to slay or to plunder, because there remained none to be objects of their fury (for they would not have spared any, had there remained any other such work to be done) Caesar gave orders that they should now demolish the entire city and temple, but should leave as many of the towers standing as were of the greatest eminency; that is, Phasaelus, and Hippicus, and Mariamne, and so much of the wall as enclosed the city on the west side.-Josephus, F., & Whiston, W. (1987). The works of Josephus: complete and unabridged (p. 750). Peabody: Hendrickson.
 There is need for shrewdness here: anyone clever may interpret (ψηφίζω) the number of the beast: it is the number of a human being, the number 666. (Rev. 13:18 NJB). Double entendre similar to a OT Janus Parallelism. ψηφίζω: “count as with pebbles” or “interpret”. We “interpret” 666 is “of a man” because he generated 666 children (Ezra 2:13); 666 results from a “count as with pebbles” when we subtract Adonikam’s father (Neh. 7:18), 667-1= 666 which is “the number of the beast.” The shrewed conclude John accepted both verses as true, therefore both Father and Son are named “Adonikam”. The skillful thinker having the understanding to believe his Bible can easily solve the double entendre.
 2Th. 2:3-4. Mt. 24:15. Dan. 7:25; 9:27; 12:7, 11 (includes 30 days to set up abominable quantum AI network his image 666 mark membership only economy. The brush with total war and the Great Depression caused by the destruction of Babylon (Rev. 18:11) led to the world’s handing over total control of their economies to the Beast (Rev. 13:14-17).
 Rebuilt Babylon ascends from the abyss symbolizing built fallen angel technology (Rev. 9:1-3. 2Thess. 2:9). The city’s supernatural character inspires men to worship the Dragon commander and Adonikam who appears invincible (Rev. 13:3-4. Dan. 9:27; 11:36-39).
Rebuilt Babylon “will go off into destruction” fulfilling all written (Jer. 50:3, 13, 39-40; 51:29; Rev. 18:2-10). Forces from her North Russia Iran Turkey destroy her (Jer. 50:41-42; 51:47-48) but ultimately it was God’s judgment against her (Rev. 17:16-17; 18:8; Isa. 13:19-22; Jer. 51:63-64; Rev. 18:21).
 “And at the time of the end shall the king of the south contend with him” (Dan. 11:40 ASV).
 When Adonikam the Beast rises mid-week the political “power of the holy people” is shattered (Dan. 9:27; 12:7). The Ten Kings ruling with the Beast destroy Harlot Babylon (Rev. 17:16). Her physical destruction is soon to follow so God commands His people come out of her, she no longer affords them any protection (Rev. 11:1-2; 12:15-16; 18:2-8). The Great Tribulation persecution martyrdom of the church nearly wipes it out (Rev. 6:9-11; 14:8-12).
 Pretribulation rapture theories failed miserably adding to the apostasy of the church. They begin betraying one another to the Beast. Their faith shattered, they became mockers “where is the promise of His coming” they sneered (2 Pt. 3:3-4; Jude 1:18).
 False prophets rise saying “look, here is the Christ! or There!”. Many are just con artists, but some do great signs and wonders (Mt. 24:21-25). All this adds to apostasy in the church as their prophecy fails to occur. And because of the lawlessness love for one another vanishes.
Endures to the 45th day of the Great Tribulation are raptured. The Antichrist rises up 1,260 days. 30 days more needed to fully set up his 666 idolatrous membership only economy (1,260+30=1,290 days). Then for another 45 days believers are martyred for refusing the mark (Rev. 14:9-12). But blessed is he who endures to the end and comes to 1,335 days (Dan. 12:11-12) for they will be raptured at the last or seventh trumpet (Mt. 24:13. 1Cor. 15:52. 1 Thess. 4:16-17. Rev. 11:15-19; 14:14-16). Those who see all these things and repent and believe are gathered up by Christ’s angels (Mt. 24:31-33; Dan. 12:1) just before Armageddon.
 Lest this not be fully accomplished, God’s angels preach the gospel worldwide to everyone (Rev. 14:6-7) “Loud voice” means everyone hears it.
