Matthew 24 - The Overview (Part 1)

 

This article is the 28th and one of the concluding articles in a series dealing with the spiritual events --- as prophesied by the Lord in Matthew 24 --- that are already taking place prior to the coming of the Son of Man. These last concluding articles summarise the previous 27 articles, providing an overview of what Matthew 24 really says in the Spirit and expounding on how it clearly contradicts the matriarchal Church's distorted understanding of the "end times".

 

These concluding articles are divided into one section for each of the preceding 27 articles in this series. Since these final articles constitute a summary of those earlier postings, you will find very few, if any, hyperlinks scattered throughout the text (unlike most of our postings, which contain a multitude of reference links to previous content). We shall also skip some of the logic detailed in the previous postings and generally jump straight to the conclusions. Therefore, if you wish to revisit the logic and specific passages that led to a conclusion, you can click on the corresponding section header (in large letters) to navigate to the original article with all the details.

Pre-parousia 1

Part of this series' intention was to expose how the Church's traditional understanding of the "end times" contradicts Yeshua's words in Matthew 24, meaning that any sincere believer is, at the end of the day, required to choose between what he is taught by the Church and what Yeshua said, for you cannot agree with both at the same time.

 

To highlight the contradictions between Matthew 24 and "traditional doctrine", let us recap the list of things that most believers are taught as "traditional doctrine" about the Lord's Coming:

  • Life on Earth will go on as usual, while the Church continues "saving souls"
  • One day, believers all over the world will instantly disappear (the "rapture")
  • Great tribulation and judgments will be sent over all those who remain on Earth
  • Jesus will marry the Church in Heaven ("the marriage supper of the Lamb")
  • Jesus will physically come back with His bride to the Earth
  • He will dethrone all literal kingdoms and establish a literal 1,000-year kingdom, ruling the world from the city of Jerusalem in Palestine

 

We shall now go through the verses in Matthew 24, summarising what they declare and showing how they contradict the picture portrayed by the list above.

 

"And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple" (Matthew 24:1)

  • The word "departed" was translated from poreuomai, used in Scripture to denote someone departing from the earthly structures that hold us back from reaching our spiritual potential
  • The temple here represents the visible religious structures that men uphold through respect and admiration, just as Yeshua's disciples admired the literal Temple
  • The disciples thought they were going to impress Yeshua by showing Him the temple, just as modern-day believers think that Yeshua is pleased with and impressed by the current, visible religious structures in the Church

"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." (Matthew 24:2)

  • To limit the above to a prediction of Herod's Temple in Jerusalem being destroyed is to denigrate Yeshua's words. What benefit other than acquiring some "interesting historical trivia" can a person obtain if that is all there is to Yeshua's words? Even if we see it as a simple "faith-booster" that proves that Yeshua's predictions come true, why is God talking about the destruction of the Temple at the start of Matthew 24 right before speaking about His Second Coming? Unfortunately, matriarchal believers, cannot see past the historical trivia because they try to understand God's prophetic word with their natural minds, not with their hearts focused on God's Nature.
  • Yeshua departed from the temple and spoke of the temple's collapse, which speaks of the temporal nature of the Church's structures and the fruits they produce

"And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?" (Matthew 24:3)

  • This verse indicates that the target audience are the disciples who are close to Yeshua, not the backsliding disciples, or the "heathen" unbelievers. Every time Yeshua says "you" in the verses that follow, He is referring to the disciples who are close to Him in their hearts. This is something that eschatological parrots fail to understand when they read Matthew 24, especially since it does not fit their agenda.
  • "Olives" in "Mount of Olives" points to the prophetic anointing, meaning that everything that Yeshua is about to say must be understood with a prophetic spirit, not with a literal, Girgashite spirit. Again, the mention of the "Mount of Olives" was not some useless, geographical information intended to simply provide mental information to those reading Yeshua's words.

"4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. 5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many." (Matthew 24:4-5)

  • Obviously, unbelievers could not care less if someone stood up and said "I am Christ". Deception relies on a hook, and this can only be a hook to believers, not unbelievers, especially since Yeshua said "Take heed that no man deceive you" whilst speaking to the disciples close to Him.
  • The vast majority of modern-day believers would not fall for anyone literally saying, "I am Christ". The matriarchal Church has done too good of a job teaching Matthew 24 in a literal way for that to ever happen. Even so, a literal manifestation of this verse is the only warning of deception that matriarchal believers get from this verse.
  • "Christ" means "Anointed One" ⇒ To say, "I am Christ" to other believers is to say, "Only I have the anointing in full; you are not as 'anointed' as I am" ⇒ The deception is over having a monopoly on God's Anointing

"And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet" (Matthew 24:6)

  • The last 5 to 6 decades have seen a decrease in literal wars, and, since the end of the Cold War in the late 1980s, the rumours of literal war have also decreased significantly since then ⇒ A literal interpretation of this verse would mean accepting a falsehood
  • Revolutions always start with rumours, with people beginning to doubt within themselves whether the current state of things is right
  • "Rumours" was translated from akoe; the last 3 verses where it appears reveal that it is related to words that are not received by the people who bear God's name and is only received by a small minority, a minority surrounded by a vast, dull-of-hearing majority:
    • Hebrews 4:2: The word "preached" (akoe) did not profit them
    • Hebrews 5:11: We have many things to say, but you are dull of "hearing" (akoe)
    • 2 Peter 2:8: That righteous man (Lot) dwelling among them, in seeing and "hearing" (akoe), vexed his righteous soul
  • The Lord dwells in the thick darkness ⇒ He is known in intimacy ⇒ Those seeking intimacy with Him will be the ones who will hear these "rumours" from God and accept them in their hearts
  • The "rumours" are also a reference to the prophetic remnant waging spiritual warfare by launching prophetic arrows from the darkness of anonymity against Babylon, presaging its fall

Pre-parousia -- Internal turmoil

"For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places." (Matthew 24:7)

  • Since the end of World War II, history has seen a dramatic decrease in literal wars between literal nations ⇒ A literal interpretation of this verse does not work
  • What has increased since the end of World War II is the number of internal conflicts, i.e. conflicts within (not between) literal nations
  • "Nation" was translated from ethnos, which speaks of people who share a common set of traditions and doctrines, which are taught down from generation to generation
  • Girgashite teachers produce stagnant nations that resist anything that is truly prophetic ⇒ When God is to be manifested, there is a rise in internal conflict between His prophetic nation and the soul's Girgashite nation
  • "Kingdom against kingdom" refers to the internal battle to retake spiritual strongholds.
  • The white-horse rider's "going forth conquering and to conquer" in the 1st seal of the Apocalypse (Revelation 6:1-2) points to all this internal conflict; the Church will have conflict within itself as it is judged first. Once the Church is finally restored and conquered (from within) unto God, then it can go out and conquer the world unto God.
    • It is clear from Scripture (and leukos, the word for "white", itself) that the white horse is not the anti-Christ ⇒ The traditional (i.e. Egyptian) interpretation of the white horse is wrong
    • The white horse is, instead, the beginning of the Lord's manifestation through His remnant people
  • The Church has returned to Girgashite Egypt in their hearts, but the Lord, on His Second Coming, shall stir internal conflict and overcome Girgashite Egypt from within (Isaiah 19:1-4)

Pre-parousia -- The red horse

"For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places." (Matthew 24:7)

  • The first half of the verse silently points to the white horse of the Apocalypse, which is the 1st seal (Revelation 6:1-2)
  • IMPORTANT: The word loimos ("pestilences") was not in the original text (as explained in biblehub.com). The word was copied by transcribers from the parallel verse in Luke 21:11.
  • The white horse is the umbrella for the other 3 horses of the Apocalypse, and it starts to gallop in your heart as you receive the New-Covenant awareness that you are a king and priest of God (Revelation 1:6)
  • The first half of the verse ("nation v. nation" and "kingdom v. kingdom") implicitly points to the white horse and explicitly points to the red horse of the Apocalypse (the 2nd seal - Revelation 6:3-4) and to the word "pestilences" that was inserted (out of order) from Luke 21:11
  • The red-horse rider comes with the sword of God's logos to bring judgement that creates division between believers, separating those who seek God in the Spirit from those who are simply following religious structures and traditions; this creates internal conflict from "below" that confronts the current religious structures
  • The red horse of the Apocalypse correlates with Cain in Jude 1:11. The red horse comes to confront the stubborn Cain who is bent on preserving his ways even when he has been proved utterly wrong.
  • The red-horse rider is like a spiritual Abel who comes to expose the wrongness of Cain's ways. As a result, Cain ends up killing Abel's presence in the Church. Cain relies on being the "elder" brother in order to undermine the "younger" and "less credible" brother, eventually "killing" him.
  • The spirit of Cain promotes the "pride of life" mentioned in 1 John 2:16, which takes pride in biological life over spiritual life; Cain felt pride over being the one biologically alive after he was able to kill Abel, thinking that his ability to "outlast" Abel proved that he was the one in the right. Yet, "dead" Abel's blood was more spiritually alive than "living" Cain's entire body.
  • The spirit of Cain correlates with the temptation to throw oneself from the temple's pinnacle and expect to be caught by the angels (Matthew 4:5-7). Cain believes that he, as the "elder" brother in the religious hierarchy, can expect the spirit-beings around him (the "angels") to submit to him and serve them in his arbitrary desires because he is in a "high position" in the visible realm. Cain, in effect, demands that the supernatural submit to the natural and that the invisible submit to the visible.
  • Red-horse riders are "weak-looking judges". They are teacher-apostles who come to teach a new level of spiritual wisdom that defies the long-standing traditions of Cain. Their primary spiritual face is the "Man" Face, and their secondary spiritual face is the "Lion" Face.

Pre-parousia -- The black horse

"For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places." (Matthew 24:7)

  • The word "famines" points directly to the black horse of the Apocalypse, the 3rd seal (Revelation 6:5-6)
  • A pair of things is mentioned with the black horse in connection with the "penny" (or denarion):
    • The "wheat" points to the prophetic endowment
    • The "barley" points to the evangelistic endowment and to the "poor" (true evangelistic work is spread most efficiently through those who are "poor" in the eyes of men)
  • A second pair of things are mentioned with the black horse:
    • The oil points to the prophetic anointing
    • The wine points to joy and to the evangelistic endowment of victory and conquest
  • The "penny" (or denarion) refers to a day's wages ⇒ The "wheat" and "barley" point to the use of the prophetic and evangelistic for temporal ends
  • The prophetic endowment refers to spiritual grace; the evangelistic endowment points to natural grace ⇒ These 2 ministries are the "grace" ministries ⇒ The wheat and barley in Revelation 6:5-6 point to the use of grace for temporal ends
    • The wheat points to utilising the prophetic for temporary, emotion-laden "spiritual" experiences
    • The barley points to utilising the evangelistic to pursue material blessings and prosperity
  • The black horse comes to fight against the spirit of Balaam (the 2nd enemy listed in Jude 1:11)
  • Balaam offers "prophetic wheat" without sacrificial death
  • Balaam promotes the "lust of the flesh" mentioned in 1 John 2:16, which means falling prey to false grace to satisfy temporary needs
  • The spirit of Balaam correlates with the temptation to turn stones into bread (Matthew 4:2-4)
  • The "pair of balances" (zugos) carried by the black-horse rider points to "unequal yokes" (2 Corinthians 6:9-18) that try to combine the things of God with the things of the flesh, the "Israelites" with the "Moabite women" that Balaam offers, the truly spiritual and eternal with the soulish and temporal
  • Black-horse riders are "grace-aware judges" (i.e. apostle-prophets) who judge the temporality-centred misuse of grace (represented by the "wheat" and "barley") but who are careful not to condemn the righteous, eternity-centric use of grace (represented by the "oil" and "wine"). Their primary spiritual face is the "Lion" Face, and their secondary spiritual face is the "Eagle" Face.

Pre-parousia -- The green horse

"For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places." (Matthew 24:7)

  • The word "earthquakes" points directly to the "pale" horse of the Apocalypse, the 4th seal (Revelation 6:7-8)
  • The word "pale" in Revelation 6:8 was mistranslated from the Greek word chloros meaning "green"; hence, the "pale horse" is actually a "green horse"
  • Earthquakes are associated in Scripture with events that break people out of Sheol prisons
  • Matriarchal pastors make a pact with Hittite Sheol (Isaiah 28:14-19) and use Hittite power to keep fellow brethren under their false covering; they sell the eternal Spirit potential of their brethren's souls to get power from Hittite Sheol
  • Death and Hittite Sheol entered the world when the "female" soul of man was allowed to establish matriarchal dominion over the "male" spirit
  • The green-horse rider is willing to go through Death and Sheol to open up the Sheol prisons that pastors in the Church have created to trap the righteousness and spiritual potential of their brethren
  • The green horse comes to fight against the spirit of Korah (the 3rd enemy listed in Jude 1:11)
  • Korah is the enemy's last-ditch effort to maintain the supremacy of the soul over the Spirit after all the damage inflicted by the red and black horses
  • Korah tries to convince souls into thinking that they are righteously covered when they are actually "bald" and "naked"
  • The spirit of Korah correlates with the temptation to worship satan in exchange for the kingdoms of the Earth (Matthew 4:8-10)
  • Korah promotes the "lust of the eyes" mentioned in 1 John 2:16, which means allowing Hittite deception to cloud the eyes of our judgement by declaring "good" that which is soul-friendly and "evil" that which is Spirit-enabling, even when all the evidence to the contrary is clearly in front of the eyes
  • Green-horse riders are "resurrected prophets" (prophet-pastors) who expose themselves in weakness before Korah, allowing Korah to kill them in a profound way (at a level much deeper than how Cain kills red-horse Abel). In their Death, green-horse riders are sent to spiritual Sheol, from which they eventually resurrect to wreak havoc on the system that decided to annihilate them. Their primary spiritual face is the "Eagle" Face, and their secondary spiritual face is the "Man" Face.

The beginning of sorrows

"8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. 9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake." (Matthew 24:8-9)

  • Yeshua says, "you shall be delivered up", His audience being the disciples who are close to Him; He makes no mention of any "rapture" or any opportunity to escape from this
  • Any effort to limit this to the disciples of the Primitive Church would be to ignore that Matthew 24 is Yeshua's answer to the question, "How will Your Second Coming be?" (Matthew 24:3) Besides, all the verses prior to verse 9 have never been treated as "history" by the matriarchal Church. Why should verse 9 suddenly be "history" that does not apply to the time of the Second Coming? On top of that, verse 9 says "then", which speaks of something that comes after, not before, what has been described by the Lord up until now.
  • The word "beginning" was translated from arche, which also means "principality" ⇒ It refers to people at the top of the power hierarchy
  • The Lord lists 3 types of sorrows from the top of the Triangle of Evil:
    • Afflicted: Hittite torment of our emotions
    • Killed: Jebusite accusations and attacks against us
    • Hated of all nations for His Name's sake: Attacks from Amorite kings for threatening the Girgashite nations that uphold them
  • When we operate in Yeshua's Anointing as Melchizedek priests, we transcend all temporal hierarchies of power, for Melchizedek had no "father", no "mother", and no "beginning of days"
    • ⇒ Operating in the Melchizedek priesthood will subject us to the "beginning of sorrows", i.e. the "principality of sorrows", but that will mark the beginning of the end of the principality, i.e. the "end of the beginning"
  • As evidenced in John 8:31-36, the Church is ruled by a principality that lives in denial of God's judgements against her, a principality upheld by souls interested in preserving the status quo, even if it means spiritually afflicting, killing, and ostracising those who "rock the boat"
  • Soul-centric principalities are prone to exceeding their God-allowed sphere of influence; people, especially soulish believers, who judge by visible parameters are unable to discern these encroachments, especially when those encroachments work to limit our New-Covenant, spirit-centric nature
  • The word "sorrows" in Matthew 24:8 was translated from odin, which literally means "birth pangs" or "travail pain"
    • ⇒ The Lord's Second Coming is not, as the matriarchals think, an event external to or independent from us. It involves those close to the Lord going through birth pangs in order to hasten or move forward its manifestation.
    • ⇒ The Lord's Second Coming requires suffering and travail from those close to His heart; there is no magical, "pain-cancelling" rapture in store for God's people

Betrayal before the end

"And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another." (Matthew 24:10)

  • The word "offended" was translated from skandalizo meaning "to put a stumbling block in someone's way to make the person trip and fall"
  • The word skandalizo points to Matthew 5:29-30, and, hence, to the need for separation from other brethren
  • The greatest stumbling blocks are from others within the Body of Christ due to their "inside access" to us ⇒ We must be willing to put a firewall around our relationships and to endure the loneliness and difficulties that come with cutting off fellowship with those (especially "believers") who may try to derail us from hearing God's voice by coaxing us back to religious paradigms that are not pleasing to God
  • The reference to betrayal points to other "brothers" and "sisters", not to the unbelieving world, just as Yeshua was ultimately betrayed by Judas, not by a Roman dissenter. Unbelievers cannot "betray" us because they have no inherent allegiance to believers.
  • The word "betrayed" was translated from paradidomi, which literally means "to give over, deliver up"; you cannot deliver up someone who is not close to you and to whom you have no access, and there is no point in delivering someone to a powerless entity
    • ⇒ The betrayal described by the Lord has to come from other "believers" in the Body of Christ who are more loyal to the visible principalities (in the Church and outside of it) than to the invisible God
  • Many shall be made to stumble ⇒ It will not be an isolated incident happening to one believer over here and another believer way over there
  • If the "rapture" is to happen as the eschatological parrots predict, followed by people being handed over for not accepting the "666" tattoo or microchip, why would many be made to stumble? Aren't the Christians "left behind" supposed to have "fallen" already? Instead of stumbling, wouldn't they be prone to accepting the "truth" and rejecting any false message once they have witnessed the "reality" of the long-predicted "rapture"?
  • This stumbling only makes sense in an environment where everything seems normal and the current principalities remain "credible enough" to continue to be followed
  • The stumbling fundamentally consists in convincing believers that they "can't walk", i.e. that they are not qualified to make judgements or be spiritual conquerors independently of the religious principalities' "authorisation" and "superior wisdom"
  • The Church's matriarchal "stumble-causers" drain believers of their prophetic calling and drown them in a sea of temporal, religious, Girgashite activities with absolutely no eternal value
  • Upon encountering betrayal and efforts to make us stumble, we are called by Yeshua to separate ourselves from the agents of betrayal and stumbling, especially when we detect the abomination of desolation, which actually refers to the moment when people in a congregation, for example, begin to deify their matriarchal leaders, deeming any criticism of their doctrines or "decrees" as the equivalent of blasphemy against God. Once the leadership is deemed "inerrant" and completely immune to any judgement from their brethren, the abomination of desolation has occurred in that place and it is time to flee.
    • The eschatological parrots have a different interpretation of the abomination of desolation because they understand it from a very literal, natural-mind perspective. Given how flawed their interpretation and their timeline have proved to be when judged in the light of Matthew 24, what credibility is there to their belief that some political figure will enter some reconstructed temple in Jerusalem and proclaim himself as "God" in a speech broadcast worldwide by satellite? Given that their concept of the "rapture" clearly contradicts Matthew 24, when could this literal event happen if, as they claim, faithful, churchgoing Christians will not be exposed to any type of suffering or persecution? If we are to take the passages on the abomination of desolation literally, are we supposed to flee to a literal mountain, as Mark 13:14-16 declares? What if we live in an island devoid of mountains, or what if the nearest mountain is 2000 miles away? Also, does any sane believer truly think that Yeshua was referring to literal "rooftops" when He told us not to go down to get our stuff when we see the abomination of desolation? Was he saying this to those who would be watching the abomination-of-desolation TV broadcast whilst sitting on their rooftop lawn chairs (Wrigley style)? What if we do not live in a house with a rooftop? Does that mean that we can ignore that part of the verse altogether because it does not apply to us? Dear reader, Yeshua spoke His words in such a way that taking them literally would require you becoming a total moron, and this writer is being totally spiritual when saying this! Woe be unto the bastards in the Church who continue to indoctrinate their brethren into spiritual stupidity and who become "righteously indignant" when someone so much as dares to question them, even if it is done in a "loving" and respectful way! And, cursed are the whores who support them and defend them at every turn! You have been blotted out of the Book of Life and will be stamped with perennial shame on your foreheads for all of eternity!!! The Lord God of Israel is sick and tired of you doing your unrighteous deeds in His Name!
  • The "hating of one another" in Matthew 24:10 speaks of the righteous remnant's hatred of the soulish unrighteousness promoted by the Church and its leadership, and it speaks of the vitriolic Canaanite hatred that the matriarchal Church and its leadership always unleashes in return on those who pronounce righteous judgements. When confronted, the "tolerant" matriarchals are the most intolerant, dictatorial and hateful people on Earth. This is why, as the remnant begin to speak out God's judgements, hatred from the "tolerant" matriarchals will abound.

The snare before the end

"And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many" (Matthew 24:11)

  • Why does the Lord mention the rise of these false prophets until after the "beginning of sorrows"? Since the matriarchals' "rapture" is to escape from the sorrows, aren't we to infer that these false prophets will be rising after the rapture? Does that even make any sense, since there will be no "Christian-minded" people left to deceive? In fact, wouldn't the magical "rapture" of all churchgoers essentially eradicate the possibility of people following false, "non-traditional" teachings anymore, given that those who followed "traditional" "Christian" teachings have been clearly vindicated by a miraculous exit from this world of sorrows? Even if you could argue that the matriarchals' "rapture" happens very shortly after the "beginning of sorrows", the question would remain: Do the verses that follow in Matthew 24 bear this out?
  • The "false prophets" referred to by the Lord are those who are in the habit of releasing dunamis power to relieve external symptoms, without ever dealing with the underlying roots, which require the release of judgements (something that matriarchals abhor)
  • As prophesied throughout Scripture, Yeshua's Second Coming involves a restoration of the "judges" within God's people and the cursing unto destruction of the judgement-hating, dunamis-centric leadership and those who embrace this Canaanite-Girgashite leadership
  • Those who are susceptible to falling for false prophets are "Ephraimites" enveloped in a spirit of adultery
  • These "Ephraimites" are deceived by spiritual "strangers", i.e. the spirits contrary to the "male" nature of God, which abound within the Church's spiritual atmosphere
  • God will deliberately get these "Ephraimites" drunk on the unrighteous wine that their souls love, so as to destroy them
  • Does any of this even fit in within the context of the lovey-dovey, gooey-goodness, matriarchal "God" that the Church proclaims? Is it consistent with the "pain-minimising" God that will make sure that none of His precious ones suffer during the "Great Tribulation" by magically snatching them out of this "cruel" and "unloving" world?
  • Being a deceivable "Ephraimite" involves being pathah, which means to have an "open mind", a mind so "open" that it is willing to accept clear iniquity as "good"
  • According to God's prophesy, deceivable "Ephraimites" are constantly saying lies about His Nature, and they have a tendency to gather together for "wheat and wine", deriving soulish strength from being part of a "majority" in order to justify their self-deceptions. Does this sound consistent in any way with how eschatological parrots portray those who are susceptible to the latter-day deception?
  • Overcoming the "Ephraimite" deception involves the willingness to recognise, flee from, and judge the "Babylon" within the Church. And no, this "Babylon" is not a mere reference to the "Roman catholic Church", as eschatological parrots are so simplistic to proclaim. They are unable to clearly point out this "Babylon" because they are a part of it and would rather die spiritually than see it fall.

"And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold" (Matthew 24:12)

  • The love of many shall "wax cold" ⇒ Love will become soulified, meaning that it will be soul-centric and "effeminate", not spirit-centric and "male"

"But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved." (Matthew 24:13)

  • Why doesn't Yeshua say, "they that endure to the end shall be saved"? The Lord's use of "he" instead of "they" means that enduring this sorrow is individual in nature, which implies that there is a loneliness associated with it. The matriarchal Church's understanding of the end-times is always "group-oriented", since matriarchals are eminently pastoral and therefore understand believers to be "flocks" of "helpless" sheep. The remnant's journey, however, has a very individual nature to it. It cannot rely on "group support" because it is so much in the minority. Whilst the status-quo masses of helpless sheep huddle together under their master pastors, the remnant believers stand outside, alone, weak, attacking and enduring the attacks from the matriarchal stronghold that they are battling to take down.
  • Why does Yeshua talk about "enduring unto the end" if we are not supposed to be around for all that suffering? If this verse is talking about not being deceived prior to the tribulation and simply enduring the temptation of being deceived until the "rapture" happens, why do the previous verses speak of us being persecuted and hated of all nations? Isn't the enduring, therefore, referring to the pressure to submit to the prevailing and accepted thought upheld by the "recognised" Church "leaders", all whilst suffering persecution and alienation? The Lord's emphasis is on many being deceived, not just a few sects here and there. Otherwise, the concept of "enduring" makes no sense. The notion of "enduring" points to social pressure. Who needs to "endure" when only a few "kooks" are being diverted by false prophets to wrong cults?
  • Why does this verse say "saved"? Despite the matriarchals' fixation with linking "salvation" with "hell", the Lord is not referring to salvation from hell. Otherwise, this verse would be declaring that those who fall away will lose their "salvation" and thus be sent to hell, which would throw a wrench in the matriarchals' message of "unmerited grace". If this is to be taken as "you will endure till the end if you are truly saved" (as some pastors are quick to argue), it means that all that a saved person needs to do is to put it on "automatic" to make it through because he has been given the trophy even before the battle has started. Little of this is congruent, meaning that one's understanding of salvation must be altered in order for the word "saved" to make sense in this verse.

The Gospel of the Kingdom

"And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come" (Matthew 24:14)

  • The word "world" was not translated from kosmos, the Greek word normally used for it in Scripture. Instead, it was translated from oikoumene, the feminine participle of the verb oikeo meaning "to dwell in", which is derived from the word oikos meaning "home".
    • ⇒ The "gospel of the kingdom" will be preached to those who stay at "home" under the matriarchy of the "female" soul
  • The word "all" was not translated from pas, the Greek word normally used for "all" in Scripture. Instead, it was translated from holos, which has the connotation of something that is "comprehensive".
    • ⇒ The "gospel of the kingdom" will be preached to all areas of humanity and the human experience that are under the matriarchy of the soul
    • ⇒ It will also be preached to those in the Church who rest comfortably under the covering of the pastoral matriarchy
  • The word "witness" was translated from martyrion, which speaks of "martyrdom" and prophetic sacrifice. This means that the "Gospel of the Kingdom" involves great personal sacrifice. To the eschatological parrots, the phrase "as a witness" is superfluous, since the only thing their natural minds can focus on is the "preaching" that is mentioned in the verse. To them, "preaching unto all nations" basically involves renowned pastors standing at their pulpits reciting sermons that are broadcast throughout the world by television; to a lesser degree, they also associate it with the teams of missionaries that they send out to do person-to-person evangelism.
  • The fact that Yeshua says "as a witness" in the singular speaks of the individual nature of this work. Instead of promoting a collective, institutional, "let-us-all-work-together" mentality, the Lord emphasises that it is each individual that releases this work into the Earth.
  • The fact that Yeshua says "all nations" (as opposed to "several" or "many" nations) implies a confrontation of all the groups across the scope of humanity that have built up structures that "legitimise" traditions and values that go against God's Kingship
  • The Gospel that shall finally be preached is the Gospel of the Kingdom, which is different from the Gospel of salvation that the matriarchal Church espouses.
    • The Gospel of the Kingdom is a conquering Gospel that seeks to take dominion of the Earth; by contrast, the matriarchal gospel of "salvation" simply seeks to have as many people as possible recite the prayer of salvation and join an "approved", traditional congregation
    • In the Gospel of the Kingdom, believers are former sinners being transformed into conquering manifestations of God in the flesh; in the gospel of salvation, believers are little more than helpless sheep, wretched sinners saved by grace who, unless they are ordained pastors, have little to do but continue with their secular lives until the mother ship comes to take them home in the magical "rapture"
    • In the Gospel of the Kingdom, the believer is an Israelite rescued from Egypt who is to conquer the Promised Land; in the gospel of salvation, the believer is an Israelite who is handed the Promised Land and its blessings on a silver platter without having to lift a finger ("'cause Jesus did all the work")

Discerning the abomination

"When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)" (Matthew 24:15)

  • The word "spoken" was translated from rheo, which speaks of something poured forth in a prophetic flow ⇒ Matthew 24 (and Daniel 11) cannot be read like static, encyclopaedic literature that can be understood with the mind (hence the phrase "whoso readeth, let him understand", i.e. if you are simply "reading" this, realise that you must go one level higher to understand)
  • The word "abomination" was translated from bdelugma, which is derived from bdeo meaning "to stink" ⇒ It is referring to something that cannot be seen with the natural eye but can be perceived with other senses; it will be invisible, and it must be discerned as such
  • The word "desolation" was translated from eremosis, which is derived from eremoo meaning "to despoil, to strip of one's treasures", which, in turn, is derived from eremos, a word used to describe a husband who separates himself from his wife
    • ⇒ It points to God leaving a place because of the pride and abominable idols (2 Chronicles 15:8)
  • The phrase "prophet Daniel" refers to someone operating in apostolic judgements and in the prophetic anointing who is willing to defy visible authorities and their decrees (just as Daniel did with Darius' decree - Daniel 6)
  • The phrase "stand in the holy place" points to a place where the abomination of desolation is accepted by people as an unquestionable reality
  • The phrase "holy place" was translated from hagios and topos; whenever these words appear in the same verse in Scripture, it is always in the context of people who stand in their invisible and naturally-indiscernible spiritual authority, openly defying the visible, "well-recognised" authorities, especially those that are generally believed to have spiritual legitimacy
  • From all of the above, it becomes evident that, once Matthew 24:15 is read as rhema that poured forth prophetically from God, the mundane, literal interpretation that the matriarchal Church ascribes to it becomes ridiculous and meaningless. To actually think that this verse refers to a day when some globally recognised political figure will re-enter a literal temple in Jerusalem (that will never be rebuilt until after the Lord's return, if ever) is to wait for a fantasy moment that will never happen, all whilst denigrating God's prophetic word.
    • Again, if this is a literal event, will this happen before or after the magical "rapture"? If it is before the "rapture", wasn't the rapture supposed to keep us from persecution and tribulation? If it is after, why hasn't the Lord mentioned anything about a get-out-of-jail rapture up until now?

3 levels of flight

"Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains" (Matthew 24:16)

  • Since Yeshua mentions Judaea, are we to conclude that this verse is only for people living in the Middle East, and, specifically, within the southern part of modern Israel (which was known 2,000 years ago as Judaea)? To assume this is to engage in spiritual stupidity, since it requires the assumption that Yeshua's words are very narrow, earthly, and limited in scope.
    • Yet, this is exactly what the matriarchal "prophecy experts" do when they assume that this verse speaks of some sort of calamity that the converted Jews will have to face and which will force them to literally flee to the mountains
    • As a result, these "experts" conclude that the Jews, who are currently not very "Christianity-friendly", will have a mass conversion to Christianity as the Gentiles enjoy their 3.5 (or 7) year vacation in Heaven
    • Yes, there will be a conversion of Jews towards Christianity, as prophesied in Romans 11, but it will come when the Gentiles finally manifest the God of Israel, which cannot happen if they are out of the picture, enjoying a "post-rapture party" up in Heaven
    • Even if we assume that the eschatological parrots are right, how can we explain that neither the rapture has been mentioned by Yeshua up until now, or that at no point has Yeshua made a transition from speaking to Gentiles to speaking to Jews?
    • To draw conclusions such as "Judaea here means that the Jews will be converted after the rapture and have to literally escape a nuclear holocaust" requires pulling these conclusions out of one's sleeve (or a lower anatomical region), since Matthew 24 at no point implies or supports such a narrative
  • In truth, "Judaea" represents the Church's visible religious structures that remain under the Old-Covenant priesthood where God's people are divided into "priests" and "laymen"
  • Fleeing from Judaea to the mountains represents heeding the red-horse shout and escaping from the religious structures of Cain

"Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house" (Matthew 24:17)

  • Just as "Judaea" in this passage does not refer to a literal geographical location, the "rooftop" in this verse does not refer to people living in houses with literal rooftops ("How stupid must you be to believe that?", says the Lord God of Israel, "Cursed are the ones who reject and become indignant over My evaluation of them as stupid")
  • In truth, the "housetop" (being a high place) is a spiritual reference to the "mountains" we are to flee to when we escape from Judaea, thereby denoting a spiritual progression
  • Those on the "housetop" are those who have escaped from Cain's red-tile roof covering and are living in black-horse independence
  • "Housetop" was translated from doma, which is derived from demo meaning "to edify, build"
    • ⇒ It speaks of those who want to edify their spiritual nature and who are not satisfied with a status-quo spiritual condition whilst idly waiting for the "rapture" spacecraft to beam them up to an eternal home

"Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes." (Matthew 24:18)

  • Just as "Judaea" and "rooftop" in this passage do not refer to literal geographical locations, the "field" in this verse does not refer to people living in rural areas who make a living by working the land
    • Otherwise, what instructions should be followed by those living in urban areas? Clearly, a literal understanding would lead to the conclusion that Yeshua's "evacuation plan" is woefully incomplete!
    • Also, if the above verse is to be taken literally, why in the world should those in the field not return for their clothes? What about food and supplies? What about their computers? Is it OK to return and get those? If Yeshua meant, "Do not go back at all", why did He specifically mention "clothes"? What is it about the "clothes" that makes it so wrong to return for them? Is it because God was predicting a new type of nuclear device that produces radiation that only sticks to clothes?
    • Dear reader, when Yeshua wanted His people to understand His words in a strongly figurative sense, He made sure to express His message in such a way that any literal interpretation would result in utterly stupid conclusions. Yet, the Church's matriarchals would rather turn Yeshua into a preacher of idiotic gibberish than admit the idiocy of their own traditional teachings, especially since that would force them to make the additional effort of seeking God's prophetic understanding, something that is utterly unnatural to the soul-centric mind of the matriarchal man.
  • The word "field" was translated from agros, which, in Scripture, points to green grass and to the sacrificial green horse of the Apocalypse
  • The word agros is derived from agra meaning, "a catching, a hunting, the prey"
    • ⇒ Those in the "field" are believers in great spiritual vulnerability who become bait that draws in Korah, who likes to jump on vulnerability to "rape" and destroy. When Korah jumps on God's green-horse riders, however, he seals his own fate, just as satan did when he seized Yeshua in His moment of greatest weakness to kill Him.
  • Because of their vulnerability, those in the "field" are forced to walk in figurative "nakedness", which can tempt them to go back to the matriarchal Church for some of the "clothing" or protection that it offers

Flight of sadness

"And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!" (Matthew 24:19)

  • The phrase "that are with child" was translated from echo ("to have"), en ("in") , and gaster ("belly") ⇒ The original phrase literally reads "to have in the belly"
  • The word gaster points to believers who are willing to bear a sacrificial burden that exposes them as "failures" in the eyes of soulish man
    • gaster points to people bearing the sacrificial-unto-death green-horse anointing, under which we are to go through binding pregnancies
  • The phrase "them that give suck" refers to believers who are spiritually immature in certain areas and are still in need of protection from more mature believers
  • After the green-horse period, believers are allowed to enter into an ambiguous 5th-seal period, which is intended by God to be a period of rest. However, believers who are friendly to the remnant but who refuse to grow up in certain areas and enter into the fullness of the remnant will cause remnant believers to go through 5th-seal pregnancies that will expose them to unnecessary torment and disrupt their rest. God's perfect will is for us to go through these pregnancies (bearing the weakness of others) up until the 4th seal. The problem is when the partial unwillingness of others cause these pregnancies to spill over into the 5th-seal period.
    • These extra sacrifices become necessary because of the good that these partially-mature believers have done on behalf of God and His remnant. God never forgets these favours.

"But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day" (Matthew 24:20)

  • Can anyone truly, truly say that the Lord was speaking literally about not fleeing on a Saturday? Again, a literal interpretation of Yeshua's words inevitably reduce them to stupid gibberish.
  • Why are we told to flee? Aren't we supposed to have been "raptured" to Heaven by now? Yeshua does not say, "Let those who are left behind pray that you may not have to flee on a Saturday?". Instead, He says, "pray ye that your flight be not in the winter ... [or] on the Sabbath". He is still talking to the disciples who are close to Him, and at no point has He hinted that He is now talking to a different audience. It is the eschatological parrots who artificially inject these "audience changes" in order to fit their pre-conceived understanding. And, even so, the result remains contradictory and full of ridiculous holes.
  • If this is for the Jews "left behind", why would it be relevant that it not be on a Saturday? If this is a one-day event that can fit into a literal Saturday, why pray against an entire season (i.e. winter)? Also, is the "winter" warning for the "Christianised Jews", or is it also for "Gentile believers" left behind? Or is Yeshua basically saying, "pray that it is not a cold and rainy Saturday?" Is that because the weekend traffic on slick roads would make for a difficult escape? Is an intellectually honest believer willing to reduce Yeshua's words to such a banal advice? Matriarchal believers are willing to do so because the only other option is to admit that they are blind to what the Lord is truly saying.
  • The word "winter" was translated from cheimon, which points to "foul weather" and to a rain of Jebusite judgements brought about by Old-Covenant structures
    • cheimon judgements come from those who cannot understand the remnant's spiritual language and who try to deny the God-nature in you
    • These "winters" of inclement Jebusite judgement endeavour to emphasise the contrast between what you claim in the Spirit and the "weak" and "irrelevant" person that you appear to be on the surface
  • In truth, the Lord's reference to "Sabbath" in Matthew 24:20 is not to a literal day of the week but to the cessation of "secular" activities in order to engage in ritualistic religious activities, which leads to an infiltration of Hittite spiritual activity; in other words, it refers to the influx of Hittite attacks that result from the Church's empty religious activities
    • This Sabbath of Hittite activity can be intensified by the temptation to make Hivite peace covenants with the enemy that may bring temporary rest from the enemy's harassment but eventually lead to a more intense onslaught of Hittite torment
    • During Sabbaths of Hittite activity, the 5th-seal remnant are forced to suffer through ambushes spurred by oaths made against them
    • The Hittite Sabbath attacks from the enemy turn a time that is intended for rest for the remnant into times of intensified torment
  • The Lord tells us that we can pray against Jebusite-winter and Hittite-Sabbath persecutions
    • ⇒ We have certain authority to reduce their occurrences and minimise their intensity
  • These Jebusite-winter and Hittite-Sabbath persecutions point to the enemy that is faced during the 5th seal: a Jebusite-Hittite gone Canaanite
    • This enemy seeks to permanently enclose believers within their 5th-seal refuges and prevent their manifestation
    • This Jebusite-Hittite enemy is the "second beast" prophesied in Revelation 13, the beast that seeks to re-establish the matriarchal first beast that is mortally wounded by the remnant after the first 4 seals
    • Nature of the enemies faced in each of the first 6 seals of the Apocalypse:
      Enemy Seal # Emotions Mind Heart
      The matriarchal beast 1 Amorite Canaanite Jebusite
      Cain 2 Girgashite Jebusite Amorite
      Balaam 3 Hittite Amorite Girgashite
      Korah 4 Canaanite Girgashite Hittite
      The second beast 5 Jebusite Hittite Canaanite
      The matriarchal beast 6 Amorite Canaanite Jebusite

The humanity project preserved

"For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be" (Matthew 24:21)

  • Again, weren't we supposed to escape the tribulation? If you want to argue that the rapture happens between v14 and 15, why did the verses prior to v14 speak of God's faithful being persecuted and hated and betrayed? Weren't things supposed to be happening as normal before the rapture? Why does the Lord continue to speak of persecution after v14? Isn't the "break" between verse 14 and 15 simply a rewind of what the Lord had said earlier, specifying the intensity and the starting point of the tribulation that believers are to go through?
  • The phrase "great tribulation" was translated from megas and thlipsis; the way that these words are used together in Scripture reveals the following:
    • Just like Joseph in Egypt, the remnant have to go through great tribulation first
    • Just as with Joseph, as the remnant are delivered from their tribulation, the great tribulation is released on the rest of the Church and on the unrighteous in general
  • The phrase "from the beginning of the world" was translated from apo, arche and kosmos
    • arche and kosmos do not appear together in any other verse of Scripture
      • ⇒ The phrase "beginning of the world" has a rather unique spiritual meaning that cannot be discerned in a simplistic way
    • The 3 words (apo, arche and kosmos) together point to the Amorite, Canaanite, and Jebusite spirits
      • ⇒ They point to the matriarchal beast, the original enemy against which the 7 seals of the Apocalypse are opened
  • The phrase "to this time" was translated from the words heos meaning "until" and nun meaning "now"
    • There are 3 different words for "now" in Greek; out of the 3, nun is the only one that refers to the specific, literal moment in time at which the speaker is speaking
    • This means that Yeshua was saying that the level of great tribulation that He was referring to had not happened until the time at which He was speaking, which was when He was about to undergo His betrayal at the hands of Judas, the torture at the hands of the unrighteous, and His eventual death and descent to Sheol
      • ⇒ What Yeshua went through was the "great tribulation", meaning that it was the highest level of tribulation in human history
    • This does not mean that Yeshua's torture and death was the only manifestation of the "great tribulation" prophesied by Yeshua in Matthew 24:21. Instead, it means that, to have a sense of what the "great tribulation" is, we have to meditate on what He went through, and it also means that those who follow Him closely and who are willing to complete their spiritual journey will go through a tribulation similar to what Yeshua endured, even if their suffering may vary from Yeshua's in the literal details.
    • As shown by Yeshua's travails, the magnitude of the "great tribulation" cannot be measured by the literal level of the person's suffering; instead, it must be measured by taking into account the righteousness of those suffering, as well as the righteous reasons that have triggered the suffering
      • A righteous person's soul develops a greater depth and sensitivity than an unrighteous soul; hence, the same bad event endured by a righteous person will automatically trigger a level of suffering that is greater in the eyes of God than the suffering inflicted on an unrighteous person by the very same event
      • An unrighteous person may suffer greater literal tribulation than a righteous person and still have his tribulation deemed by God as "lesser" than that of the righteous person
      • The same event may produce no tribulation on an unrighteous person whilst triggering great tribulation on a righteous soul. Why? Because the righteous soul, being more developed, will be sensitive to and concerned about things that the unrighteous soul is impervious or indifferent to.
    • Great tribulation on a righteous soul may have 3 components:
      • An apostolic component: Suffering triggered by the unrighteousness upheld by others
      • A prophetic component: Suffering triggered by awareness of Hittite purposelessness or by Girgashite-Amorite-Jebusite oppression of the prophetic
      • An evangelistic component: Suffering triggered by opportunities of conquest and victory squandered or by direct Amorite warfare

"And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened." (Matthew 24:22)

  • The word "shortened" was translated from koloboo meaning "to mutilate" and has the connotation of something that is abruptly lopped off
  • The word koloboo is derived from the verb kolazo meaning "to punish" and is used in Scripture to speak of righteous people being delivered from God's punishment
  • ∴ The "shortening" of the remnant's tribulation will be done through a sudden onslaught of punishing judgements poured over those who have tribulated the righteous, a sudden onslaught that will gradually increase in intensity as times go by, like a woman's labour pains
  • The word kolazo is derived from kolos meaning "dwarf"
    • ⇒ God's punishments are drawn by those who have had a chance to grow but have passed up on it; their stunted growth gives the Lord "legal authority" to stunt the tribulation of the remnant
  • The original text does say "there should no flesh be saved" (even when many translations make an effort to hide the word "flesh" because of its usually-bad connotation in Scripture)
  • Why would God want to "save flesh", especially since the flesh is so evil according to the traditional religious understanding?
  • Scripture shows that the answer lies in the fact that the human flesh was designed to house and manifest the nature of God Himself on Earth
  • The matriarchal Church does not understand this because it (being in the soul) can never understand the idea of God manifesting Himself in the flesh of humanity in general
    • They are willing to accept this manifestation when applied to Yeshua Himself, but only because it is a well-accepted, traditional doctrine that remains abstract and theoretical but has never been challenged through a direct encounter with the human Yeshua (at least the historical one) in the flesh
    • Were Yeshua to appear in the flesh before them today the way that He appeared to His disciples and to Israel in general before His resurrection, the vast majority of believers would not recognise God inside of Him. And, faced with His undeniable "flesh humanity" standing before them, they would also perceive it as blasphemous that He would dare to intimate that He was the "Son of God" or "God in the flesh".
    • The proof that they would reject Yeshua's God-nature today, even as faithful churchgoers, is that they do it every time God manifests His nature through "ordinary" believers
    • In short, the matriarchals reject the God-potential in every human being, even though Yeshua so lovingly sacrificed Himself at Golgotha in order to rescue and enable that potential, which was lost in the Garden of Eden
    • This rejection of the God-potential in every human being is what keeps the Church so spiritually stale and unaware of God's mighty purposes for the Body of Christ on Earth
    • This rejection explains the escapism mindset of the matriarchal believer, who finds this whole "flesh thing" very unattractive and wants to be magically transported to a more "elevated, fleshless" state, completely unaware of why God created us in the flesh to begin with
    • The Church's simplistic understanding cannot see anything good in "flesh" or this "Earth", and is therefore prone to believing ideas about the banishment of both; hence, the magical "rapture" becomes very appealing
    • As the Church continues to reject this "mystery of godliness", the purpose for which God created humanity languishes to the point of perishing
    • Due to the lonely, suffering remnant (which the matriarchal Church works so hard to obliterate), the mystery of godliness remains active, and the purpose for having any humanity at all remains alive. This is why God will ensure that their physical presence in the flesh will not be eradicated from the face of the Earth; this is why He wants to prevent the scenario of no flesh being saved.
  • Faith, hope, and love:
    • Faith: Allows us to transition from the red-horse stage to the black-horse stage, and sustains us throughout the black-horse stage
    • Hope: Allows us to transition from the black-horse stage to the green-horse stage, and sustains us throughout the green-horse stage
    • Love: Allows us to transition from the green-horse stage into Death and Sheol, and subsequently into the 5th-seal stage
    • Whilst in the 5th-seal stage, the hope of the green-horse stage sustains us; as that hope wanes, the faith of the black-horse stage allows us to complete our walk
