Wheresoever the Carcase is

Answers Concerning Prophecies and things future #41

Wheresoever the Carcase is

“ For wheresoever a dead carcass is,
thither will the Eagles be gathered together.” (Mt 24:28 GenevaBible)

 

This (Matt. xxiv. 28) is an expression used to designate the Jewish State, or nation. It is so used in Deut. xxviii. 26, where Moses says, speaking to Israel:

“Thy carcase shall be meat unto all fowls of the air”;

that is, thy nation shall be a prey to all other nations; and in the same chapter, verse 49, a particular nation is designated which should come against them from far (Italy) “as the Eagle flieth”, the Eagle being the symbol of the Roman Power, as is well known. The figure used by Jesus and Moses is the same; the latter says:

“Thy carcases shall be meat for the fowls of the air”,

and Jesus declares that

“Wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together”.

Dr. John Thomas

 

*

“ And thy carcass shall be meat unto all fowls of the air, and unto the beasts of the earth, and none shall fray them away.” (De 28:26 GenevaBible)

“ The Lord shall bring a nation upon thee from far, even from the end of the world, flying swift as an Eagle: a nation whose tongue thou shalt not understand:” (De 28:49 GenevaBible)
