• The " good news" of the Kingdom, ardently preached [ taught] worldwide by J.W's, will not be fully accomplished [ worldwide] by the time that Armageddon happens...The scripture compares the local area that Jesus preached to the whole world, So some people may not get to hear about the Kingdom when this system crashes... Anyway, WE keep looking for those who are humble enough to comply. Very little time will be spent on those who show resistance. There is not that much time left. (2 Timothy 3:1-5) But know this, that in the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here. 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, haughty, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, disloyal, 3 having no natural affection, not open to any agreement, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, without love of goodness, 4 betrayers, headstrong, puffed up with pride, lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God, 5 having an appearance of godliness but proving false to its power; and from these turn away.

      Hi Emperor...may I WHAT? (Matthew 28:19, 20) Go, therefore, and make disciples of people of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the holy spirit, 20?teaching them to observe all the things I have commanded you. And look! I am with you all the days until the conclusion of the system of things. The system is crashing...have you considered what lies ahead?
  • Matthew 10:23 is a prophetic statement to endure persecution. The early church generally had a sense that Jesus' return was "imminent." It is exactly the attitude Jesus wanted His disciples to have. (Acts 1:6-7) Nevertheless, the Bible does not indicate when He would come back.
    • pugwashjw65
      The actual date is set...(Matthew 24:36) “Concerning that day and hour nobody knows, neither the angels of the heavens nor the Son, but only the Father. But not even Jesus knows it. A further proof that Jesus is NOT God himself...IF Jesus was a ' third' party as claimed by the trinity, HE WOULD KNOW IT...BUT HE DOESN'T.

      Silly pugs, I made it clear that the Bible does not give a specific date to know when Jesus will return. In Matthew 24:36, it says NO MAN knows the day and hour to speak of the human nature of Jesus. Was Jesus not a man????????????????????? *Facepalm*
    • Texasescimo
      So how does the Father know the day if there is not one set? Obviously pug did not say any man knows the day and hour. Reread his comment for what it says, not what you would like it to say with your ridicule.
    • Jenny Rizzo
      Texasescimo, it looks like you need reading glasses, cause pugs said: "But not even Jesus knows it." Matthew 24:36 is not only speaking of angels, but of anyone you can think of who is classified as a human being.
  • You cannot just pick this one scripture, you have to take the whole chapter. Here Jesus is giving instructions to his disciples about how to preach and how the world would receive them. The preaching work to spread good news about God’s kingdom was done back the and is also being accomplished now and after it is completed the end will come (Matt 28:19,20.

  • *** However, the Bible makes it plain that there are times when running away is both wise and courageous. Bearing that out, before sending his disciples out into the ministry, Jesus Christ told them: “When they persecute you in one city, flee to another.” (Matthew 10:23) Yes, Jesus’ disciples were to try to escape from their persecutors. They were not to carry on anything like a crusade, trying to convert others by force. They bore a message of peace. (Matthew 10:11-14; Acts 10:34-37) So rather than allowing tempers to flare, Christians were to flee, to put distance between themselves and the source of provocation. In this way, they maintained a good conscience as well as their precious relationship with God.—2 Corinthians 4:1, 2. *** So when saying that his disciples would not complete their circuit of preaching “until the Son of man arrives,” Jesus was prophetically telling us that his disciples would not complete the circuit of the entire inhabited earth with the preaching about God’s established Kingdom before the glorified King Jesus Christ would arrive as Jehovah’s executional officer at Armageddon.
