Matthew 24:35 - 24:44

Gospel of Matthew
Gospel of MatthewSteve Gregg

In this discourse, Steve Gregg discusses Matthew chapter 24, emphasizing the difference between the signs of destruction of Jerusalem in 70 A.D. and the actual Second Coming of Christ. He explains that there are indicators that foretell the former, but no signs for the latter. Gregg warns against fatalism and encourages listeners to pay attention to what Jesus actually says, pointing out that mundane activities such as eating, drinking, and getting married are not inherently sinful and that people make plans for the future. Ultimately, Gregg underscores that the Second Coming will be unexpected and judgmental, catching everyone by surprise.
