Jesus Christ Our Messiah will soon be coming for his present saints (the born again - saved), in an event we call "The Rapture" - the “catching away” resurrection, appearing in the clouds/sky, not on earth yet. He will also be coming back to earth from Heaven later, with his saints, setting his feet on the ground with them to execute judgement on the ungodly (Jude 1:15). This will be to usher-in a 1,000-year time of peace, with no satanic influence. Eternity forward from this time will include a new earth as well, after Satan is released from imprisonment to tempt those who are willing to be tempted, one final time. He is afterward cast into the Lake of Fire, never to temp, steal, kill or to destroy ever again.

Chapter 24, from Matthew's Gospel, covers a great deal about the tremendous tribulation the earth will see immediately before Jesus Christ’s actual coming back to the earth to reign with his saints for 1,000 years – an event called the “Millennial Reign” of The Lord. Afterward a final Judgement of those who would never accept Jesus as their Lord, will take place, called “The Great White Throne Judgement”. While this very famous chapter from Matthew reveals much detail regarding many of these events, there is still much judgement to be seen by the God-haters and blessings to his saints (all saved – Romans 10:13) who love the Lord Jesus and have accepted the gift of eternal life to them.

In this Bible Teaching audio (link show below this article), I use sort-of a blog method of discussion regarding Jesus’ – “Sermon on the Mount”; his end-times prophecy teaching from Matthew Chapter 24. I also throw a few other things in, as I usually do. There’s some personal testimony of mine and of course The Gospel of Jesus Christ in a solid nutshell so-to-speak (overview of the major principles). I speak about God’s only begotten Son, who died on the cross for our redemption from sin, through His Precious Blood and His resurrection from the dead – a grace provision for Salvation, not of works we have done but God’s gift. “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9).

I talk about end-time events happening now, before our very eyes, however, Jesus also said of the few things I mention; "All these are the beginning of sorrows." (Matthew 24:8). Things will get much worse, but I believe, as do many Christians, that “The Rapture” will take place before the horror of “The Great Tribulation” begins to occur (1 Thessalonians 1:10 and 1 Thessalonians 5:9). The Great Tribulation will be a seven-year period, in which God allows Satan a final wrath on unredeemed mankind who are in God’s image (Genesis 1:26 and Revelation 12:12), while God also sends wrath on a world that rejected His Son (Revelation 19:15). In the meantime, lots of non-believers in God’s Word and backslidden Christians are making light of what we see happening before our eyes and ears. NOTE: While Satan is given a final “wrath” on mankind (Revelation 12:12) and is afterward bound for 1,000 years, he is allowed one more time of tempting naturally born people on earth who repopulate the world while he is bound in “the bottomless pit” during Christ’s 1,000-year rule of peace (Revelation 20:2–3).

FINAL SCRIPTURE QUOTE: “Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.” (2 Peter 3:3-4). So, will you be a scoffer (some are phony and are actually embracing the sin nature), or will you accept God’s free gift of salvation, obtained for us by His Son – Jesus Our Messiah and walk the rest of your natural life, in the light of it?

Author's Bio: 

I am a graduate of Liberty University (1996) for completion of theological studies. Bible studies are one of my most-covered book-subjects. I am however, careful to only address those subjects that I believe God has given me correct revelation on. I was a Christian Youth Minister, beginning in the 1980s for approximately 20 years (between youth ministries I served in other church capacities as well). I was also a guest speaker to churches, who invited me to present important Bible teachings to their evangelical congregations, during those same years. I am a redeemed man, who has received salvation by acceptance of Jesus Christ and what he did for me in shedding his blood and dying for me on the cross and in his resurrection from the dead, giving me the promise of eternal life, purely by grace (not due to anything I have done, other than to accept it freely).
