Paul White shows in this video what the true meaning of this passage is. It was a parable, and was fulfilled in the first century.
As I was growing up, I was told that this was a reference to “God’s Organization” of the Watchtower Society. Paul White shows how this cannot be true.
Many have stated that when Jesus said: “But concerning that day and hour no one knows,” it is a reference to a future worldwide “Armageddon” event. In this video, Paul White shows how that is NOT possible, but it referred to the destruction of Jerusalem in AD 70. Watch and learn.
Jesus said “For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished.” Matt. 5:18
This was not a reference to something in our future, but it was a reference to the passing away of the Old Covenant Israel and everything associated with it, which happened in AD 70.
Pastor Paul White gives an outstanding exposition of the Old Testament verses which expound on this point. Listen and Learn.
Jesus said in Matthew 24:24: “this generation will not pass away until all these things take place.” Pastor Paul White shows clearly in this video that it is impossible that it could have meant “This race will not pass away.” The Greek word for race is “genos.”
Please listen and learn from this.
All writers appreciate endorsements of their books. In this brief video, Don Preston endorses my book, God’s Promise of Redemption, a story of fulfilled prophecy. This book shows how God has kept every one of his promises!
Thank you Don for your endorsement!
I would also like to encourage you to view the video series’ on this subject in the tabs at the top of this page – Last Days – Past or future, and Last Days of the New Testament.
In this video by Paul White, he shows what is meant by the “Mountain Range View of prophecy,” and why it is a flawed view of Biblical Interpretation. I like the way he starts this video. He states that “being right” is not important.…but truth is important. Once truth is presented, people can do with it what they chose. We should NOT be arguing over these passages.
I would like to not that at the end of this video, brother Paul reads Acts 24: 15, but misses a crucial point about this passage. If you will look this up in your Interlinear Bible, you will notice that in the Greek, it says “there is ABOUT TO BE a resurrection of both the just and the unjust.” ABOUT TO BE is from the Greek root word “mello.” Therefore, this was a resurrection that would happen soon. This word changes everything and brings in a whole host of implications with regard to the soon coming resurrection.
Once again Pastor Paul White gives us an excellent account of Matthew 24:29, as he shows an Old Testament precedent that the words used in this passage are symbolic language, and are not to be taken literally. This is part of his overall goal of showing that Matthew 24 is a fulfilled prophecy and not something which is in our future.
Do you still think the Parousia (Second coming of Christ) is still in our future? In this video, Paul White shows some excellent points that show the true meaning of this term and when Jesus said it would happen.
Pastor Paul White does another outstanding job in this video to explain the meaning of the 144,000 in the book of Revelation.
If truth is important to you, watch and take notes:
