Q u e s t i o n s..A b o u t..S c r i p t u r e s
p a g e..3 6

-Matthew 25:31.What is the."throne of His glory".mentioned here?

We are!.2Peter 1:17 "For he received from God the Father honour and glory when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased."
   And this applies to us as well, as Christ's nature of love dwells in us.

1Peter 4:13,14 ".....when his glory shall be revealed you may be glad also with exceeding joy.....for the spirit of glory and of God rests upon you......" 1Peter 5:1,4; 1Corinthians 6:20; 2Corinthians 6:16; Galatians 3:26-28.


-Matthew 24:29,30 talks about Christ coming immediately after the tribulation mentioned there, but in 2Thessalonians 1:6,7,10 it is shown that Christ is revealed from heaven with his angels when those who are his, those having believed in him, are in the midst of trouble. How can this be?

Answer from preterist.org
"You are correct in pointing out that the word 'tribulation'.(Greek 'qhliyin').is found in both passages. Both passages harmonize well. In Matthew 24, there is a great tribulation.(persecution).of the saints which is followed immediately by the coming of Christ.(when did this occur?), which causes the heavens and Earth to be shaken and all the tribes of the Earth to mourn:.Matthew 24:30.

"In 2Thessalonians 1:6,7,10, we see the same scenario. The saints were being persecuted. Christ would come and give them relief and at the same time, affliction to their persecutors. We are talking about two different phases of the tribulation with Christ's return in the middle.(the first regarding the saints {Matthew 24:30,31} and the second against persecutors of them throughout the ages); this second coming is without general observation because it is in the hearts of those who are of Him, that is, those being of a loving nature and it is they who will determine from the words of the Creator as recorded in the Bible, what the reward of the evil ones on Earth will be and they also will be judging angels, both good ones and bad ones). Both passages.(in their contexts).deal with both phases."....Edward E. Stevens


Luke 21:8 "..many shall come in my name, saying..., the time is at hand; go you not after them.".(American Standard Version) Why not go after them? Was not the time 'at hand'?

Answer from preterist.org

"In Luke 21:9.(the very next verse), Emmanuel said the reason his disciples should not pay attention to anyone saying."the time is at hand".in those days was because the other signs he gave them had not happened yet. Emmanuel gave enough signs that they could not miss it. When compared with the parallel accounts in Matthew and Mark, this is even more apparent. For instance, if Emmanuel had given them 30 signs to look for and only 5 of them had taken place, it wouldn't make much sense to believe that the end was immediately at hand. But if all 30 had taken place.(by the year 66 A.D.), they could be sure the end was indeed at hand. There is another reason also. The people who were trying to lead away the brethren were probably caught up in the nationalistic mindset and looking for a materialistic kingdom or paradise or they were Judaizers. To follow them would have been fatal in view of what happened to such zealots at 70 A.D."....Edward E. Stevens
 
-Daniel 7:23 What is this fourth beast Daniel is talking of here? And what are the ten kings talked of in verse 24?
Note that the fourth beast was diverse, that is, having distinct characteristics, qualities or elements different from the other three. Notice also that it devours the whole earth, breaking it in pieces. A study of history in conjunction with the book of Daniel reveals much on this subject. 

Have you heard of the Communist tenet of 'divide and conquer'? The Romans had the idea first and passed it on to would be world controllers. Have you read Karl Marx's.The Communist Manifesto.where it talks of one of the best ways to gain control is to institute a 'progressive' income tax? His ideas were a broadening of a government philosophy formerly protracted by Caesar Augustus, that of a census, an enrolment, a listing of the people and so began 'people management' aka 'control':.Luke 2:1-3.

This census helped with accurate historical recording of the people involved in the most important event in history to that time, the solid historical fact of the birth of the one we refer to as Emmanuel:.Luke 2:6-14.

The ten kings refer to the Caesars of the ancient Roman Empire:.Daniel 7:24-27
