Matthew 24 is the chapter that is interpreted regarding (end times). As I’ve stated regarding this blog, “pray for revelation”, the only way to know the truth of God’s Word is through the Holy Spirit which will guide us through all truth. We must pray to God the Father, through Jesus Christ in the name of Jesus to reveal to us the truth of His Word, for true understanding, and knowledge. Since God’s Word is not designed for interpretation, therefore, there cannot be Misinterpretation, just false interpretation of the Word of God!
2Peter 1:20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.
2Peter 1:21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. King James Version
So, knowing that Matthew 24 is dealing with prophecy, in no way can it be interpreted, just falsely interpreted. When man interprets it, it will be false and void. A Satanic tool of deception. If you haven’t received the truth of God’s Word from the Holy Spirit by praying, then most likely you are believing in false doctrine that has been handed down from generation to generation.
Colossians 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. King James Version
Colossians 2:8 Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ. New King James Version
The false interpretation of Matthew 24 has been handed down from generation to generation. People then cling to it as if it is gospel. There has been men of the past that has written books of this sort, regarding Scriptural events for the future. I’m speaking of those authors during the 1600’s through to the 1900’s. I am not going to name them, but you can probably guess who these people are? Although many of them may have had good intent behind what they wrote, it was simply false by their erroneous interpretation of God’s Word. If you look back at Colossians 2:8, you will see where people have fallen with these beliefs. If you are not receiving the truth from God yourself through the Holy Spirit in the name of Jesus, then you are more than likely falling prey to such men of that era, and even now, that wrote books, that generations have followed and have embraced for all the wrong reasons! How many of you will truthfully state that you received this belief on your own? That you read the Word of God and that is what the Holy Spirit gave you? Or did you simply succumb like so many other people that just take it for granted as being the truth? This is the problem with so many people, we just don’t read the Word of God for ourselves and pray to God the Father for understanding, for knowledge and for the truth in the name of Jesus! The Holy Spirit will guide you through all truth. Don’t just fall for man’s philosophies and false doctrines without first praying to God for confirmation of the truth! Refer back to Colossians 2:8.
John 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. King James Version
I challenge all of you, in a most humbling and godly love, to pray and ask God our Father in the name of Jesus to reveal to you the truth, in understanding and knowledge of God’s Word regarding this topic and any and every topic, subject or anything you are not sure of? As many of you are possibly thinking, don’t take even my word for this, but search out for yourself for the truth. God says to ask Him for wisdom and He will give to you liberally! (I paraphrase). Please, don’t take any man’s word for anything! You have to search for yourself. You should always confirm in prayer to God for anything that is the truth? Whatever you may have heard or read or been told to believe? My only purpose is to do God’s will and try to help everyone, help those that have been deceived by false doctrine and don’t know it? Pray, pray and pray some more! This I can guarantee, God will answer your prayers if you are sincere, God knows our hearts and where we stand with Him!
Even regarding the Book of Revelation, which is a Book of prophecy.
Revelation 1:3 Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.
Revelation 22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
Revelation 22:19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
I have been working on other topics and this topic as well. I will have more later to add to this and other things that are related to some degree. These writings I’m doing take time, so please bear with me as I will get more topics out as soon as I can, Lord willing! End of this part. Pray for Revelation…
