The Lord Jesus spoke to his disciples, of which we are.
Where is your name in the gospels as one of those that Jesus addressed on the Mount of Olives? If you were not one of those disciples living at the time Jesus spoke these words, then these words were not meant for you!
Matthew 24,25 and
Mark 13 are the very same time frame discourse, which all know that to be so~ correct?
It is correct. Listen to Jesus' words as he is finishing speaking to his disciples:Mark 13:33-37"Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch. Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. And what I say unto YOU I SAY UNTO ALL.""ALL"
that will ever read those words from the lips of the Son of God. All
of the church of Jesus Christ, from the apostles (even those not present when he spoke those words to Peter, Andrew, and James and John) to the very last saint that will ever read those words before our Lord returns bodily, just as he left this world!
How plain is that scripture? For men like you, it is not plain enough, for you will still try to corrupt the Lord Jesus' words. You folks play with words, to teach lies. How else is God to warn others beside the then disciples he was speaking to? He is not limited, we all know that, yet he has chosen to speak to every saint that would ever read those words spoken to the four disciples, as though he was speaking directly to them.
This is the method that God has chosen to speak to us. We all could just walk outside of our house and pick a leaf off of a tree a have a message from God, if he so willed to do that,
but we know that he has not. It is through the word of God,
writing and speaking directly to the people then living, to speak to us! Example~
In Genesis 50:24-26 we read these words:"And Joseph said unto his brethren, I die: and God will surely visit you, and bring you out of the this land unto the land which he sware to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob. And Joesph took an oath of the children of Israel, saying, God will surely visit you, and YE SHALL CARRY UP MY BONES FROM HENCE. So Joseph died, being an hundred and ten years old: and they embalmed him, and he was put in a coffin in Egypt."
Joseph was speaking to those brethren right before his presence, yet, it was NOT them
that carried him out of Egypt, because, he was put in a coffin in Egypt!
and there stay until he was brought forth BY MOSES, who was not there when Joseph spoke those words to Israel! This was accordingly done; when Israel went out of Egypt, Moses took the bones of Joseph with him, and they were buried in Shechem; see ( Exodus 13:19; Joshua 24:32 )
There are other examples of speech, where when speaking to a people of a family or group, you are speaking to all of them of doing and following the same thing. This is the method God has chosen to speak to us. He no longer speak to us at sundry times and in divers manners, but through the voices of the prophets and apostles from his word. Acts 13:27
In Closing one more example:Malachi 4:5"Behold, I will send YOU Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:"
Did God send John the Baptist to Malachi's generation, or the Jews living four hundred years later? In other words, the YOU
was not THEM
four hundred years later, yet God used the word you
when speaking of THEM
that was to come four hundred years later! Interesting. But, how else is God to convey his message to us, other than this method that he has chosen. God is not limited, he can take one thing and used it in one thousand different ways, all serving his glorious eternal purposes in Jesus Christ.
