The question, “And what shall be the sign of Thy coming?”, refers to the Second Coming, with the Disciples at this time having no understanding of the Rapture (I Thess. 4:16-18). Their minds are still on the ascension of Israel, which they felt Jesus would lead, and which they expected shortly!


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 Your coming, and of the end of the world? (Mat. 24:3).

Jesus, the God of Israel, having forsaken His House, it becomes morally leprous – as all become that He forsakes – and in harmony with Leviticus 14:45, He predicted that not one stone of it should be left upon another. He began His Ministry on a mountain, the Mount of Beatitudes, and closed it on another mountain, the Mount of Olives. 

Christ offered the Kingdom to Israel, but He and it were refused. Consequently, even as He will say in this 24th Chapter, this subjected the world to continued wars, famines, earthquakes, etc. – a continued timeframe which has lasted now for nearly twenty centuries.

Most of this Chapter refers to Israel; however, the first fourteen Verses refer to the Church Age directly, and the Church, per se, indirectly. Three particulars stand out. They are:
1. “Deception”: “For many shall come in My Name, saying, I am (of) Christ; and shall deceive many.” Deception is one of Satan’s most powerful weapons. The answer to deception is a firm understanding of theWord of God, which translates into a firm understanding of Christ and the Cross.
2. “False prophets”: “And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.” If the Message is not “Jesus Christ and Him Crucified,” then the person must be labeled a “false prophet.”
3. “The Gospel”: “And this Gospel of the Kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; then shall the end come.” Despite the false apostles and the false ways, the prediction is that the Gospel of the Kingdom will be preached “unto all nations.” It does not say, “all people”; but it does say, “all nations.” We have personally aired Gospel programming by Television in approximately 35 nations, with the Message translated into their language, whatever that language might have been.
The phrase, “And then shall the end come,” plainly tells us that the Gospel of Jesus Christ being preached all over the world proclaims the fact that the Church Age is about over.
The 15th Verse of the 24th Chapter of Matthew signals the Great Tribulation. All of this means that the Church should be getting ready for the Rapture (I Thess. 4:13-18).
