Mount Olivet Prophecy

Mount Olivet Prophecy

“27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.” (Mt 24:27-28 AV)

“And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.” (Mt 24:30 AV)

“The coming of the Son of Man”, referred to in verses 27 and 28 of Matthew xxiv., is not the same Coming as that in verse 30. Verses 27 and 28 speak of the Little Horn of the Goat standing upon the political carcase of Judah, taking away the Daily Sacrifice, and casting down the Temple and the truth to the ground in their peculiar style.

“Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:” (Mt 24:29 AV)

Verse 29, the stars fall from the heaven, because

“the Little Horn casts off the stars to the ground”,

and in consequence the Jewish State is abolished. But between verses 29 and 30 there is a long interval of time. Between these two verses come in “the times of the Gentiles“, during which the Jewish State has no existence, and therefore nothing is said about it. But in “the Time of the End” of this long interval the Sign of the Son of Man appears in the heavens. . . .

The Sign may now be seen by those who know how to read the Signs of God. After the Sign is fully manifested, the Son appears with his clouds, and those in Jerusalem will see him, and receive him with acclamations, saying:

“Blessed be he that comes in the name of Jehovah”,

and the tribes will mourn, and so forth; so that the event of verse 30 is identical with that of Matt. XXUi. 39.
