WARNING: If you are not religious, this material may be tedious for you. Nevertheless, I think you should read it if for no other reason than the fact that Matthew 24 is where the author started his apocalyptic study. He is heavily invested here.
Analysis of Matthew 24
This page was created in order to consolidate Matthew 24 pages from the Religion menu which was growing too long. I began my apocalyptic studies in Matthew 24 and will eventually publish my analysis of every verse in it. Verses are listed here in order. Additional commentary has been added below.
Matthew 24:40-41: Arbitrary Death and Destruction
Matthew 24:40-41 is equally misunderstood. This man is about to go to his (seeming) death for us, a necessity which even he dreaded. I can do no less than to honor him with a correct interpretation of his words. The following verses from the Bible are the very basis for the religious delusion of a Rapture. Their meaning is exactly the opposite. In the previous verses, we are warned that no one will expect the end, that people will be going about their daily lives as usual. Then Christ Jesus says,
40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
This is what it sounds like, nothing more or less. It is a warning that the death and destruction shall be completely arbitrary. If anything, if you must read something more into these verses, it is a specific warning to his followers NOT to expect that merely believing in him is somehow going to save you. Why else would he be advising you to “flee into the mountains”? That these two verses have been turned into the “Rapture” as depicted in the above picture baffles me to no end.
The Olivet Discourse on the Mount of Olives
And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? [emphasis added]
The term “Olivet Discourse” is a reference to Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21, and is sometimes called the Discourse on the End Times or the Little Apocalypse. I draw my material primarily from Matthew 24. The Mount of Olives or Mount Olivet (so named because it was once covered with Olive trees) from which the “Olivet Discourse” derives its name is a lofty place overlooking the ancient walled city of Jerusalem (now referred to as the Old City), a view that was unchanged from biblical times until 1860 when the first Jewish neighborhood was built outside the walls of the Old City. I searched long and hard for a depiction of this view as Christ Jesus would have seen it and can find no better than the two paintings below. The second painting is a depiction of Luke 19:41, when on what Christians now celebrate as Palm Sunday (his “triumphal entry into Jerusalem”), Christ Jesus stopped his descent from the Mount of Olives and “wept over” Jerusalem. This event is referred to as Flevit super illam in Latin. Imagining you know what was going through his mind at that time is sheer arrogance. He would about a week later return to the Mount of Olives for what Christians call the Ascension (I’m inclined to think he was being reclaimed by the ET race that fathered him), but not until the Progeny of Pythagoras and the Jewish masses attempted to savagely kill him.
“And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it”
The Mount of Olives is one of three mountain peaks to the east of and overlooking the Old City. The three peaks are to the right of the reddish-brown Old City with the Mount of Olives in the middle in the following relief map.
Christ Jesus chose the time of his (seeming) death
I have lived with this conviction all my life. Nor can I surrender it in the face of overwhelming proof that the savagery he suffered that day in a vain attempt to snuff out his life was the work of the Roman elite, the progeny of Jove in their day. There are things I would like to say on this subject, but I cannot. There is a line I will not cross, largely because I do not want to incur the wrath of the progeny of Jove, but also because I am mindful of who might show up unexpectedly on Monjeau. Actually, I think it is the latter that concerns me the most.
What I will say is this. My analysis at this point is that he chose the time of his death, knowing the thoughts of the progeny of Jove, even indeed as I do, in particular, their obsession with numerically signing their work. More I cannot say.
I cannot reveal the proof that the progeny of Jove killed Christ Jesus without crossing a line I am sworn not to cross. I cannot even point you in the right direction without doing so. My hands are tied.
He knew the consequences of his Olivet Discourse, of telling his disciples about the coming total destruction of the world. You will not appreciate this unless you understand first that the progeny of Jove (the Pythagoreans and Roman elite in those days) were around for 500 years before Christ Jesus and were already in control of the world and second that there are five discourses in Matthew, the last of which is the Olivet Discourse. In other words, one of the last things Christ Jesus did in his earthly career before deliberately provoking his own crucifixion, was to warn his disciples and all those who were to follow that our planet is subject to a cyclic destruction and that this time would be the worst cataclysm in the entire history of human civilization.
The fifth discourse
The final discourse is usually taken to include Matthew 23, 24, and 25.
Matthew 24 is usually called the Olivet Discourse because it was given on the Mount of Olives, and is also referred to as the Discourse on the End Times. The discourse corresponds to Mark 13 and Luke 21 and is mostly about judgment and the expected conduct of the followers of Jesus, and the need for vigilance by the followers in view of the coming judgment. The discourse is prompted by a question the disciples ask about the “end of the age” (End times or end of this world and beginning of the world to come) and receives the longest response provided by Jesus in the New Testament. The discourse is generally viewed as referring both to the coming destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem, as well as the End Times and Second Coming of Christ, but the many scholarly opinions about the overlap of these two issues, and exactly which verses refer to which event remain divided and complex. — Wikipedia
The gauntlet he threw down was to ride into Jerusalem on a Donkey.
Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.
And when they drew nigh unto Jerusalem, and were come to Bethphage, unto the mount of Olives, then sent Jesus two disciples, saying unto them, Go into the village over against you, and straightway ye shall find an ass tied, and a colt with her: loose them, and bring them unto me. And if any man say ought unto you, ye shall say, The Lord hath need of them; and straightway he will send them. All this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass.
He knew that to the learned scribes and Pharisees this would be interpreted as a declaration of kingship, just as he knew the Romans would want him dead for telling his disciples about the coming destruction of the world. If you are Christian, do not be mistaken as to why the Christ was killed.
For centuries now, Christian artists in the know have incorporated this message into their art. We know this because of a remarkable work by Gary Osborn entitled The Great Pyramid Angle … All Roads Lead to Giza. In painting after painting of Christ’s crucifixion, there is reference to the angle of the side of the Great Pyramid of Giza and the angle of the Earth’s axis. Here is just one example from the above referenced article.
Always the angles are evidenced on the crucifixion cross. Sometimes instead of 52° the inverse angle of 28° is used instead, but the message is the same. And what is the message? Well, here is what Gary Osborn has to say in the concluding paragraphs of the above-referenced article:
Going back to these 23.5° references in the paintings, it appears we are being told that there is a relevant connection between the Crucifixion Cross and the Earth’s Axis.
Personally, while amazed by this work by Gary Osborn, I think the connection is rather obvious. Joshua (his English name) was killed because of Matthew 24, because of the Olivet Discourse. He crossed the line when he spoke those words and was killed to silence him. Knowledge of this coming event has always been the most guarded information throughout history. He was killed to keep us in ignorance about the coming axial tilt. To understand why the angle of the sides of the Great Pyramid of Giza is also referenced, see The Great Pyramid of Giza and the Coming Axial Tilt.
A Place of Refuge
All of this is why he chose the Mount of Olives to tell his disciples about the end of the world. It was a place of refuge for him. Mary Baker Eddy had the Red Rock in Lynn, Massachusetts. I get the same feeling walking or riding my bike on the ocean shore. He spoke the words he knew would effectively end his time on Earth on the Mount of Olives, he departed from thence to face the consequences of that decision, and as evidenced in Acts 1:9-12 and Luke 24:50-51 he returned there to depart this dreary planet.
And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.
Then returned they unto Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is from Jerusalem a sabbath day’s journey.
The Mount of Olives with its commanding view of Jerusalem was indeed a special place for him. The village of Bethany in on the Mount of Olives, and so there is another record in Luke that the Ascension happened on the Mount of Olives.
And he led them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them. And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven.
Christ Jesus spent much time Bethany on the Mount of Olives.
The village of Bethany is referenced in relation to five incidents in the New Testament, in which the word Bethany appears 11 times:
- The raising of Lazarus from the dead – John 11:1–46
- The entry of Jesus into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, which Jesus begins near Bethany – Mark 11:1 and Luke 19:29
- The lodging of Jesus in Bethany during the following week – Matthew 21:17 and Mark 11:11–12
- The dinner in the house of Simon the Leper, at which Mary anoints Jesus – Matthew 26:6–13, Mark 14:3–9, and John 12:1–8
- Before the Ascension of Jesus into heaven – Luke 24:50
How appropriate then that the Roman soldiers from the 10th Legion camped on the Mount during the Siege of Jerusalem in the year 70 AD when the city was utterly destroyed.
The Parable of the Budding Fig Tree
The parable of The Budding Fig Tree is recorded in Matthew 24:32-35, Mark 13:28-31, and Luke 21:29-33. The significance of this parable is that the worldwide cataclysm spoken of in the Olivet Discourse has not yet happened. In Matthew 24:21, Christ Jesus says “for then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.” Daniel says essentially the same thing, some unimaginably huge catastrophe is about to happen to the Earth and its inhabitants; “there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation.” And finally there is our good friend Publius Vergilius Maro (Virgil) who makes it perfect clear what Daniel and Christ Jesus were talking about when he says, “See how it totters- the world’s orbed might, Earth, and wide ocean.” He is speaking of the coming axial tilt. Clearly, no such worldwide cataclysm has happened since biblical times. The destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD was an awful tragedy, a time in Jewish history that will never be forgotten, but it was most certainly not the worst thing that has ever happened or that will ever happen to the planet.
Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: so likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
Summer lasts for only three months. Likewise, Matthew 24:22 says, “And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.” The onset of the end times is often compared to a snare.
For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
If you listen to what Christ Jesus says, the “end of the world” about which his disciples asked is not a long, drawn out process that last centuries or even decades. It happens suddenly and unexpectedly. Few will see it coming. WWI and WWII were not the “wars and rumours of wars” mentioned in the Olivet Discourse. They were the work of the Progeny of Pythagoras, designed to throttle down human population growth by killing off millions (especially the most virile young men) and to force the return of the Jewish population to Israel. The latter is part of the misdirection in Revelation, to make it seem as though it is prophecy. It is not. It was written by the Phrygians and planted in the New Testament as the 27th book (a sacred number). The temple will never be rebuilt. There is no Planet Nine. All such things including “climate change” and the Trump presidency are distractions. Almost everything happening in popular culture right now is panem et circenses (bread and circuses) because we are so close to the end. These “distractions” will only get worse, perhaps culminating in a nuclear war. Why? Why is it so important that we not notice what is really happening in the world? As alluded to in the Georgia Guidestones, this is the one opportunity in the history of mankind to both achieve a highly advanced technical state by allowing a carefully controlled (through pestilence and war) population explosion, cherry picking the best minds (as well as preserving more the more general knowledge of the masses as the Wikipedias of the world), and then wiping out the population that made this advance in technology possible. The movie Tomorrowland really is their vision of the future. I am really sorry if this is too much for you to digest. It is the truth. Let me lay it out in bullet form so that you might begin to grasp the reality in which you find yourself.
- CONTROLLED POPULATION EXPLOSION: War, disease, and famine (the latter two particularly in Africa because these people are virulently racist and that continent has been under their thumb for millennia) has been used to control or regulate a highly orchestrated explosion in human population to the highest level tolerable immediately before the end time
- CHERRY PICKING THE BEST MINDS: Computers and the Internet, advanced communications technology in general, was introduced to facilitate the mental growth of this crop of human beings. Their most advanced inventions such as “free energy” and anti-gravity propulsion systems were sequestered for use after the axial tilt. Knowledge in general was captured as patent applications, the Wikipedias of the world (particularly the German Wikipedia), and other such electronic databases for preservation and use in the world to come, and to teach their children about the world that existed before the last axial tilt.
- DECIMATING THE WORLD POPULATION: By keeping us in ignorance about the coming axial tilt and unprepared to survive it, the mass of humanity will be destroyed in a matter of days, wiping the slate clean for those who are snugly secure in the extensive granite tunnel systems in Colorado and throughout the Western United States, the construction of which cost the U.S. taxpayer trillions of dollars. It is quite possible that a nuclear war will be started in the next year or so either to control the time in which they occupy the tunnel systems or to facilitate the reduction in population, or both. After the axial tilt the population in the Northern Hemisphere will wither to nothing as part of the Great Plan for Depopulation. I also think the remaining population in the Southern Hemisphere will come under attack using sarin gas that was produced in Colorado during WWII and stored in their underground bunkers (obviously in binary canisters of the highest grade corrosion-resistent metal). Killing off the surviving Asian, Latin America, and African populations in the Southern Hemisphere is and must be a priority of theirs. I have yet to write about this production facility outside of Denver, Colorado on what is now he outskirts of the Denver International Airport.
The period of time spoken of in Matthew 24 effectively started November 14, 2017 when the Sun reached a 13 day streak with no sunspots. It was totally blank for the first time this solar minimum. Galactic cosmic rays (GCR) are going to wreak havoc on the world over the next year or so, followed by a sudden axial tilt caused by the fast approaching gravitational behemoth Sirius, then two or three days later ocean tsunamis that are miles high are going to inundate most of the world (including the entire country of the United States of America). We have not yet seen “all [the] things” mentioned in Matthew 24, but we will and soon.
address the two meanings as discussed here and in the Book of Daniel (tag phrase) the phrase occurs on once in Matthew 24. can it really have this dual meaning? if so then one was intended to hide the other.
Flee into the Mountains
In Matthew 24:15-18, Christ Jesus references the Book of Daniel when he says:
When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. [emphasis added]
And in Mark 13:14-16, the same saying was recorded as follows:
But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judæa flee to the mountains: and let him that is on the housetop not go down into the house, neither enter therein, to take any thing out of his house: and let him that is in the field not turn back again for to take up his garment.
Here is an Interesting new translation from http://www.2001translation.com/MATTHEW.htm, which claims to be non-denominational:
So when you see the disgusting destroyer that was spoken of through the Prophet Daniel standing in the Holy Place (let the reader pay attention to this), those [who are living] in Judea should flee to the mountains! The man who is standing on his roof shouldn’t go down to remove things from his house, and the man who is standing in his field shouldn’t [go back home] to get his clothes.
There are many “signs” of the end times in Matthew 24, but none is more important than this one. Why? Because it is the last one given before Christ Jesus says to “flee into the mountains.” His use of “flee” and the deliberately exaggerated urgency of the last two sentences could not be any clearer. This is the last sign before the end. It is therefore profoundly important to understand the real meaning of the phrase “abomination of desolation.” I can assure you, it does not mean what you think.
Translating the “abomination of desolation” (NEW)
The Hebrev Old Testament term is shiqqutz(im) meshomem.
The Greek New Testament term is bdelugma tes eremoseos.
It is generally thought that only Daniel chapters 2:4 – 7:28 were written in Aramaic
What does the “abomination of desolation” mean?
What an odd phrase. What could “abomination of desolation” possibly mean? To answer this question, we must first understand the meaning of “holy place” in this context. Christ Jesus doesn’t add the parenthetical expression “(whoso readeth, let him understand)” after “when ye shall see the abomination of desolation.” It is added after “stand in the holy place” in Matthew and after the more secular “standing where it ought not” in Mark. Thus the definition of “holy place” (or “where it ought not”) is as important as understanding the meaning of “abomination of desolation.” One should not expect a simplistic interpretation of “holy place” or “where it ought not” else the warning to the wise “(whoso readeth, let him understand)” would not have been necessary.
The word “holy” in Matthew 24 is hagios in the original Greek.
Now before I go any further, allow me to say that I use only two Bibles: the Authorized King James Bible and George M. Lamsa’s “translation from the Aramaic of the Peshitta.” The latter did not suffer as many translations as the former. It is interesting to note that Lamsa uses “the sign of uncleanness and desolation” instead of “abomination of desolation” in both Mathew and Mark.
When you see the sign of uncleanness and desolation, as spoken of by the prophet Daniel, accumulating in the holy place (whosoever reads will understand)
But when you see the sign of uncleanness and desolation, as spoken of by the prophet Daniel, accumulating where it should not be (let him who reads understand)
I want to suggest that “the sign of uncleanness” and “accumulating where it should not be” (or “standing where it ought not” in Mark) frees us from a religious interpretation of this text. More specifically, the “holy place” is not some room in a modern day version of Solomon’s Temple. The use of “holy” (hagios) in Matthew must be understood from its Greek root meaning of to venerate or revere. More generally the “holy place” is the seat of real power. In biblical times, this would indeed be the scribes and Pharisees, but not today. Nor is the seat of real power in the Oval Office. In the end times, the real power is with those who control access to the granite tunnels in Colorado, who are effectively presiding over the deaths of some seven billion people. It is the Progeny of Jove. More specifically, it is the Illuminati.
Now let me ask you something. How would those people, who possess a certain knowledge of the end time (i.e. both exactly what is going to happen and the year in which it is going to happen), how would such people be acting immediately before the end? Take a minute to ponder this question. Try to put yourself in their shoes. Really try. You are for all practical purposes the “chosen people” who are going to usher in a new era in human civilization, which from it’s very outset will have “free energy” and anti-gravity propulsion systems, one world government, no war, no pestilence — a vision that only the Walt Disney movie “Tomorrowland” can fully and accurately convey. But for the moment you must wait another year or two, living with hordes of people whose reality has been carefully constructed specifically to keep them in the dark, who laughingly argue amongst themselves about who should be the next puppet “President” or “Prime Minister,” whose young men for untold generations you have been sending to their death in senseless wars intended primarily to generate profit and throttle down population growth, who mindlessly waste their lives watching sports your progenitors designed for them (from the football to bowling pins), whose entire reality has been fabricated for them, who are fat, stupid, and disgusting, and who ignorantly pray to an imaginary God you know does not exist. The disdain they feel for us is unspeakable. We are a waste of protoplasm. We are the walking dead, upright corpses that breath.Most of all we are just plain stupid. Follow me now, because I need to take you a little further down this road. They know everything starts anew on the other side of the axial tilt. There is and will be no accountability for their actions prior to the total destruction of the present world order. And they are in total control until then.
Christ Jesus knew, and the prophets could predict, that the people in control of the “Vault Profound” would become monsters right before the end, in the last few years before the axial tilt. And they will get worse the closer we get. 2018 is going to be a roller coaster ride. All of this was completely predictable thousands of years ago. It is the natural conclusion, the inevitable end of the decision to keep this knowledge secret.
So what is the “abomination of desolation?” I have removed this discussion to The Last Sign: Rampant Pedophilia (and murdering the victims) on the The Freemasons of England and Pedophilia page. What is happening to our children is unspeakable. It is indeed the last sign before the end.
All the convoluted theories about the meaning of the phrase “abomination of desolation” in the Book of Daniel that exist in countless books, magazines, and Internet pages regarding this subject are meaningless conjecture. Christ Jesus could think of no surer sign for us that the axial tilt was near than this. If you find that hard to stomach, all I can think to say is that the reality of six or seven billion corpses rotting will probably offend your sensibilities also. We are talking about the end of the world here, not some fanciful notion of Rapture. People are going to die. Everything will be utterly destroyed. Only a handful of people are going to survive. Christ Jesus is trying to tell you how to be one of them. And what he is saying is to “flee into the mountains,” not indulge in the religious delusion of a Rapture, but flee. Because of that, I have zero tolerance for anyone who thinks they are going to be somehow singled out for survival merely because they believe in the Bible.
