To the OP of this thread and anyone else who has been misled by false teachers concerning Matt 24 and what Jesus said. Quoting: Anonymous Coward 60773203
First of all, they WERE prophecies. Secondly, Jesus said that THIS (meaning the people he was speaking to) generation will SEE these things. Thirdly, those "things" happened about 40 years after Jesus said them.
They are NOT about modern day times. NOT NOT NOT
Anyone who READS the account can figure this out.
Three questions were asked of Jesus at the beginning. He answered their first two, and the answer was ALL ABOUT what was to come in 70AD.....the destruction of Jerusalem by the abomination of desolation standing in the Holy Place. (that being the Roman Army destroying the temple, and how to escape that judgement)
The third question was about His return. And He said there would be NO signs. NO warnings. So if you are looking for earthquakes, wars, rumors of wars, etc to WARN you of Christ's coming......you have been FOOLED AGAIN.
It is VERY simple folks. Prophecy has been FULFILLED IN CHRIST. There is ONLY ONE THING LEFT.
Christ's return/our judgement. And again, if you think there is a SIGN to look for, you are sadly mistaken.
The Word tells us that ONLY the Father knows that day.
I'd sure like to know how you can see the antichrist in the temple from a field - 40 years after Jesus.
When he said you can see earthquakes and disease in many places - he meant it, literally - but not quite then.
The antichrist rules the entire world - not just a small piece of it.
The New World Order is the entire world - not a small corner in the world.
We have never had the experience of the Great Tribulation or the gog magog war yet.
If we did - Jesus would be the ruler of this world and he isn't just yet.
There are 100's of prophecies the bible talks about for end times - I've given but a few.
Around 40 or 50 more are here: Thread: All prophecies the bible says will happen in End Times are happening or almost completed at present
