Matt 24 Isn’t About The End Of The Planet

The Greek word for “whole world” in Matt 24:14 is referring to the Roman world, it’s not referring to the planet, therefore Matt 24 isn’t talking about the end of the planet.

In the world today there are many people that claim to be Christian that say, “Matthew 24:14 says the gospel has to be preached to everyone on the planet and then the end of the world will come”, but the Bible does not agree with that teaching.

Colossians 1:23 says the gospel was preached to every creature under heaven, therefore Matthew 24:14 can’t be saying, “the gospel has to be preached to everyone on the planet”

The Greek word “oikoumene” for the words “whole world” in Matt 24:14 is referring to the Roman world, so what Matthew 24:14 is saying is, “the gospel has to be preached to the Romans world and then the end will come”

Colossians 1:23 confirms that the gospel was preached to the Roman world by the time that the book of Colossians was written.

The “end” that is spoken of Matthew 24:14 is not the end of the world, the “end” that is spoken of in Matthew 24:14 is the end of the age.

The Greek word for the word “world” in Matt 24:3 is “aion” or “age”, the word “aion” or “age” is referring to a time period, the word “aion” is not referring to the entire planet.

Matthew 24:3 – And as the Messiah 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 [aion – age]?

The gospel had to be preached to the Roman world and then the end of the age would happen, that’s what Matt 24:14 is saying.

The Greek word “oikoumene” for the word “world” in Matt 24:14 is also the word that is used for the words “whole world” in Rev 12:9, both Matt 24:14 and Rev 12:9 are talking about the Roman world. Matt 24:14 and Rev 12:9 are not talking about the entire planet.

Rev 12:9 And the great dragon [the dragon in Rev 12:3 is Rome] was cast out, that old serpent, called the devil, and satan, which deceiveth the whole world [oikoumene – the Roman world], he was cast out to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

Matthew 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world [oikoumene – the Roman world] for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end [of the age] come. The “end” that is spoken of in Matt 24:14 is the “end of the age” that is spoken of in Matt 24:3.

The gospel had to be preached to the Roman world as a whole before the end of the age.

After the gospel was preached to the Roman world, then the end of the age happened, the “tribulation” that is spoken of in Matthew 24:21 happened when Jerusalem was destroyed, Jerusalem was destroyed in 70AD. The end of the age that is spoken of in Matthew 24:3, is the end of the age of the law, that age ended when the temple was destroyed in 70AD.

Matthew 24:21 – For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be

Matthew 24:34 – Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place.

Colossians 1:23 – Be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which you have heard and which was preached to every creature under heaven

Colossians 1:23 confirms that the gospel had already been preached to the Roman world by the time that the book of Colossians was written, therefore the “tribulation” that is spoken of in Matthew 24:21 has already happened, it happened after the gospel was preached to the Roman world.

The statement, “this generation will not pass until all these things take place” in Matthew 24:34 is referring to the time period of the disciples, it is not referring to our time period, we are not that generation, we are not in the “last days”.

Since Colossians 1:23 says the gospel was preached to every creature under heaven, that means everything in Matt 24, Mark 13 and Luke 21:5-33 has already happened.

There is nothing in the New Testament that says the gospel has to be preached in the world today, there is nothing in the New Testament that says the Bible was written for this time period.

Matthew 24:14 says the gospel has to be preached to the Roman world and then the end of the age will come, the end of the age happened when the temple was destroyed, the temple was destroyed in 70AD, therefore everything that the Messiah says in Matthew 24:14 has already happened.

There is a verse in the book of Revelation that talks about the tribulation, that verse is Rev 7:14. Rev 7:14 proves Revelation was written before 70AD & that means that everything in Revelation has already happened, here is a link to my post that show that Revelation was not written for time period https://bornfromabove7.wordpress.com/category/revelation-was-written-before-70ad/

In the world today there are many people that claim to be Christian that say, “Matthew 24:14 says the gospel has to be preached to everyone on the planet and then the end of the world will come”, but the Bible does not agree with that teaching.

A Christian is someone that is led by the Holy Spirit, no one led by the Holy Spirit will ever say,”Matthew 24 is about the end of the planet”, because that does not agree with what the Bible says. No one led by the Holy Spirit will ever say something that does not agree with what the Bible says.

If someone claims to be Christian and says something that does not agree with the truth that is written in the Bible, the person is not led by the Holy Spirit, the person is led by the flesh, those who are led by the flesh are not the children of God.

Romans 8:14 – For all who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God.

In the world today there are many people that claim to be Christian that say it is ok for there to be different denominations in the church, that it is ok for a Christian to believe something different than what another Christian believes, but the Bible does not support different denominations in the church, 1 Corinthians 1:10 says that the church is supposed to believe the same thing.

1 Cor. 1:10 – But I urge {and} entreat you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, that all of you be in perfect harmony {and} full agreement in what you say, and that there be no dissensions {or} factions {or} divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in your common understanding and in your opinions {and} judgments.
