Ray Bentley - January 5, 2020 - Matthew 24:15-26
Jesus prepared His people for what is to come, and He still doing so today. The two re-gatherings of Israel foreshadow two comings of the Messiah. The Bible gives us a lens through which we can understand and interpret the times in which we live. At the very center of God’s plans for the worldis the nation of Israel and the Jewish people. We need to understand the "abomination of decoration" discussed by Daniel. This is the critical sign mentioned in this chapter. The revelation of the man of sin, the beast, and the tribulation are important markers in prophecy. But something wonderful will happen at the very end!
