Hi

      But the one who endures to the end will be saved.  And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.
Matthew 24:13-‬14 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/mat.24.13-14.ESV         


So let us be the ones that endure to the end let us listen to the word of God and do it.
Then we have this wonderful prophecy of the gospel being preached to the whole earth when we think of how it all began with a relative small persecuted group and has spread throughout the world only the God of the bible could foresee these things.

Love and Peace
Dave

Hi
Moving on

15 ?So when you see the abomination of desolation  spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in  the holy place (  let the reader understand),         

So what is the abomination of desolation read the following

The Time of the End
1?At that time shall arise Michael, the great prince who has charge of your people. And there shall be a time of trouble, such as never has been since there was a nation till that time. But at that time your people shall be delivered, everyone whose name shall be found written in the book. 2And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. 3And those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the sky above; and those who turn many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever. 4But you, Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book, until the time of the end. Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.?
5Then I, Daniel, looked, and behold, two others stood, one on this bank of the stream and one on that bank of the stream. 6And someone said to the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the stream, ?How long shall it be till the end of these wonders?? 7And I heard the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the stream; he raised his right hand and his left hand toward heaven and swore by him who lives forever that it would be for a time, times, and half a time, and that when the shattering of the power of the holy people comes to an end all these things would be finished. 8I heard, but I did not understand. Then I said, ?O my lord, what shall be the outcome of these things?? 9He said, ?Go your way, Daniel, for the words are shut up and sealed until the time of the end. 10Many shall purify themselves and make themselves white and be refined, but the wicked shall act wickedly. And none of the wicked shall understand, but those who are wise shall understand. 11And from the time that the regular burnt offering is taken away and the abomination that makes desolate is set up, there shall be 1,290 days. 12Blessed is he who waits and arrives at the 1,335 days. 13But go your way till the end. And you shall rest and shall stand in your allotted place at the end of the days.?

This is the time of the end so lets make sure our names are in the book of life the picture painted in Daniel is pretty horrific so lets make sure we do not fall away we are told these things so they will not come as a surprise let see them as the truth of Gods prophecies and let us take heed of his warnings.

Love and Peace
Dave

Hi
Moving on

     then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.  Let the one who is on the housetop not go down to take what is in his house,  and let the one who is in the field not turn back to take his cloak.  And alas for women who are pregnant and for those who are nursing infants in those days!  Pray that your flight may not be in winter or on a Sabbath.
Matthew 24:16-‬20 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/mat.24.16-20.ESV       


Here our Lord continues to describe what will happen before his comming pretty scarey stuff but we must not fall back when we see these things but take heart that the end is a lot nearer that it was before.
Never forgetting that satan will be doing everything he can to turn us away from our Lord but we must stand firm knowing that Love will overcome all evil God is Love.

Love and Peace
Dave

      For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, and never will be.  And if those days had not been cut short, no human being would be saved. But for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short.
Matthew 24:21-‬22 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/mat.24.21-22.ESV           


We can see this prophecy being fulfilled before our eyes we live in the age of tv and the Internet what ever happens in the world we know about it strait away it was not so in days gone by.
Its only in this day and age that we can see these prophecies be fulfilled and in a way its a good thing our Lord has done for us we need not be afraid for we know the end is near and our Lord will be with us soon to take up his rightful place as King of Kings

Love and Peace

        Then if anyone says to you, ?Look, here is the Christ!? or ?There he is!? do not believe it.  For false christs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect.
Matthew 24:23-‬24 ESV
https://bible.com/bible/59/mat.24.23-24.ESV       


How very true of this day and age with the media we have there's allsorts of different people telling us different things predicting the end and the coming of Christ the thing is nobody knows best the stick to what the bible tells us we can rely on that its Gods word and will never fail maybe we can determine the signs of time but the day of his return only the Father knows.

Love and Peace

On the flip side there be true Prophets. 
How do you determine the true from false?

Whether what they say is true.

Deu 18:22 "If what a prophet proclaims in the name of the LORD does not take place or come true, that is a message the LORD has not spoken. That prophet has spoken presumptuously, so do not be alarmed."

It's bad news for JWs. Quoting from someone else:

"Prophecy - JWs are notorious for changing the proverbial goal posts on end-time events. The Watch Tower Society which is the JWs organized body responsible for their doctrine, has repeatedly changed their interpretation of Scripture a number of times in the past. One such prophecy was a teaching from Charles Russell himself stating that Jesus Christ had already come and His INVISIBLE PRESENCE began in 1874. Then this was changed to another date, and finally settled with 1914. That year was supposed to be the FINAL year of earth?s history. But today it has been revised as the ?beginning of the end?. According to JWs, only the spiritual eye of the 144,000 can see Jesus today in spite of the fact that the Bible says clearly that EVERY EYE WILL SEE HIM."
https://www.quora.com/What-are-the-differences-and-similarities-between-Jehovah-s-Witnesses-and-Seventh-Day-Adventists

JWs and SDAs both seem to have arisen from the followers of the same "failed prophet" William Miller, a Baptist minister, whose end time prophecy in the 1840s didn't come true (what a surprise).   Charles T. Russell founded the  Bible Student Movement in the late 1870s and the Zion Watch Tower Tract Society in 1881.  After Russell?s death, Joseph Franklin Rutherford gained control of the Watch Tower Tract Society and its properties and made changes to distance itself from Russell?s Traditions. This group was renamed Jehovah's Witnesses in 1931. Now we have a splinter group called "The Lord's Witnesses." Also the Mormons arose from a set of false prophets.

Sydney Rigdon was another ex-baptist involved in the heretical Mormon prophecies and the beginnings of Mormonism, but which was also a product of occultism from the Joseph Smith side. All these started from enthusiatic nominally Christian separatists.

Here we see false prophecy in the form of meta narratives, methods of biblical interpretation that are plainly superimposed onto the bible, just like Pharisee-sponsored idea of Jewish supremacy linked to a physical god-man in place of the (human) son of God. The term "false prophet" can be applied to anyone who teaches a man-made meta narrative and / or philosophy as an ingredient of theology. Would include all forms of strong trinitarianism articulating effectively three co-equal Gods, but also dispensationalism, excepting what is taught by Christ and the apostles and biblical history, which splits the times of the people of God into three modes of (self-)government, "pre-written code / elementary moral law" "written code of Moses / justification by obedience" and "Christ's (spiritual) law / justification by faith" and yet always dependent on faith for obedience and God's approbation.
