Title: Six (6) Critical ANALYSIS and SYNTHESIS of Matthew 24 into IMMUTABLE (UNCHANGEABLE) parts from Jesus’s Lips relative to ETERNITY to address these QUESTIONS: Are we going to be here during the TRIBULATION? Is RAPTURE before or after the TRIBULATION? How Crucial are WATER, WIND, FIRE and EARTH to our faith WORK and WALK with the LORD?
Friends, I bring to you today, “Six (6) Critical ANALYSIS and SYNTHESIS of Matthew 24 into IMMUTABLE (UNCHANGEABLE) parts from Jesus’s Lips relative to ETERNITY to address these QUESTIONS: Are we going to be here during the TRIBULATION? Is RAPTURE before or after the TRIBULATION? How Crucial are WATER, WIND, FIRE and EARTH to our faith WORK and WALK with the LORD?”
This piece or pieces of information from above question(s) is or are important because half-truth can be DEADLY and secondly, to get us to FOCUS on what is important not just for us but for others who are still in the valley of DECISION for Christ.
What is it that demands our undivided attention in our RACE here on earth? It is Our FOCUS on the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit relative to our DESTINY in ETERNITY.
ETERNITY means “INFINITE or UNENDING TIME” or “a state to which TIME has no application; TIMELESSNESS”
Looking at our title today, what then does the word “SYNTHESIS” and “ANALYSIS” mean?
Now, SYNTHESIS is the combination of components or elements to form a connected whole
While ANALYSIS is a detailed examination of the elements or structure of something.
Come with me now let’s ANALYZE and SYNTHESIZE Matthew 24 from Jesus lips in six (6) IMMUTABLE or UNCHANGING parts for your application to addressing our questions above.
If you missed our last message titled, “Paul Washer – Litmus Test For Followers of Christ : Young and Old, Take the Test in 1 Hour for Your Eternity Sake!

But before we start, I will like to drop a BOMBSHELL for some of us or all of us.
Do you know, that as a child of God, You and I have absolute control over every element on the surface of the EARTH? Everything that you can see and touch and feel and admire came from the primary source which are: – WATER, EARTH, WIND and FIRE.
Take for instance the human being. We are made of dust from the EARTH; we have the WIND within us with which we breath in oxygen and breath out cabon dioxide without which we are dead meat; the FIRE, represented by the SUN to keep us warm and grow food, we need this for survival. Our bodies contain about 70% WATER or more without which we can’t survive on EARTH. You can see those 4 elements play critical part in all known universe. Now, the manipulation of these elements produces whatever we want through inventions, witchcraft, wars and what have you.
In Genesis 1:26, and I quote “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over ALL the EARTH, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
I put it to you that that authority remains in effect till this very moment you i are reading this article but very few within the Church of Jesus Christ use these for the expansion of the kingdom. The dark forces understand this and use them all the time to kill, steal and destroy the earth and cause untold hardship for the inhabitants of the earth.
Jesus came and demonstrated to us that we can speak to wind, the storm and the waves, the sick, the demon possessed and they obey us. We can walk on water if we have faith. Read these…
Amplified Bible, Classic Edition
23 And after He got into the boat, His disciples followed Him.
24 And [a]suddenly, behold, there arose a violent storm on the sea, so that the boat was being covered up by the waves; but He was sleeping.
25 And they went and awakened Him, saying, Lord, rescue and preserve us! We are perishing!
26 And He said to them, Why are you timid and afraid, O you of little faith? Then He got up and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great and wonderful calm ([b]a perfect peaceableness).
27 And the men were stunned with bewildered wonder and marveled, saying, What kind of Man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey Him!
And this Matthew 14:23-33
Amplified Bible, Classic Edition
23 And after He had dismissed the multitudes, He went up into the hills by Himself to pray. When it was evening, He was still there alone.
24 But the boat was by this time out on the sea, many furlongs [a furlong is one-eighth of a mile] distant from the land, beaten and tossed by the waves, for the wind was against them.
25 And in the fourth watch [between 3:00—6:00 a.m.] of the night, Jesus came to them, walking on the sea.
26 And when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were terrified and said, It is a ghost! And they screamed out with fright.
27 But instantly He spoke to them, saying, Take courage! I Am! Stop being afraid!
28 And Peter answered Him, Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.
29 He said, Come! So Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water, and he came toward Jesus.
30 But when he perceived and felt the strong wind, he was frightened, and as he began to sink, he cried out, Lord, save me [from death]!
31 Instantly Jesus reached out His hand and caught and held him, saying to him, O you of little faith, why did you doubt?
32 And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased.
33 And those in the boat knelt and worshiped Him, saying, Truly You are the Son of God!
And when it was time for Him to return to His Father in Heaven, He gave this final instruction to us His true disciples in
Matthew 28:18-20Amplified Bible, Classic Edition
18 Jesus approached and, [a]breaking the silence, said to them, All authority (all power of rule) in heaven and on earth has been given to Me.
19 Go then and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them [b]into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
20 Teaching them to observe everything that I have commanded you, and behold, I am with you [c]all the days ([d]perpetually, uniformly, and on every occasion), to the [very] close and consummation of the age. [e]Amen (so let it be).
But we Christians have carried the bible and left the authority to gather dust in our locked-up cupboards and asking God to come do for us what He has given us authority to dominate, rule and establish the kingdom mandate here on earth. What then is lacking???? Let’s find out!
If Jesus could walk on water and speak to storms, why are we not then able to do that? For some of us, it is because we have no faith. What then is faith?
Faith, in another word, it is an attitude of desperation backed with desperate action.
Desperation involves your whole being. Your Body, Your Soul, Your Spirit, all working and walking in agreement. Then you can muster enough faith to move mountains of limitation. Even when desperation can be found in us, desperation is not held up long enough to warrant a change to the circumstances and situation we face in the course of our pilgrimage journey here on earth.
We quote this scripture a lot – Jeremiah 29:11
Amplified Bible, Classic Edition
11 For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome.
For the above scripture to hold true, God Himself gives the condition for Jeremiah 29:11 in Jeremiah 29:12-14 below
Amplified Bible, Classic Edition
12 Then you will call upon Me, and you will come and pray to Me, and I will hear and heed you.
13 Then you will seek Me, inquire for, and require Me [as a vital necessity] and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.
14 I will be found by you, says the Lord, and I will release you from captivity and gather you from all the nations and all the places to which I have driven you, says the Lord, and I will bring you back to the place from which I caused you to be carried away captive.
Then Jesus comes and says to you and me as follows:
Amplified Bible, Classic Edition
23 And He said to all, If any person wills to come after Me, let him deny himself [[a]disown himself, [b]forget, lose sight of himself and his own interests, [c]refuse and give up himself] and take up his cross daily and follow Me [[d]cleave steadfastly to Me, conform wholly to My example in living and, if need be, in dying also].
Amplified Bible, Classic Edition
14 And to the angel (messenger) of the assembly (church) in Laodicea write: These are the words of the Amen, the trusty and faithful and true Witness, the Origin and Beginning and Author of God’s creation:
15 I know your [record of] works and what you are doing; you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were cold or hot!
16 So, because you are lukewarm and neither cold nor hot, I will spew you out of My mouth!
What we lack so badly and the wicked have so abundantly is the desperation to be and do what God expects us to do. The desperation has to be consistent and long lasting. Not here today and gone tomorrow. It is only in desperation for the things God has called us to do and to be that we can have victory in our walk and work with the Lord.
What then is the definition for desperation: It is the feeling that you have when you are in such a bad situation that you are willing to take risks in order to change it.
The key point here is RISK. Are you willing to risk all for God to change circumstances and situation that will bring glory to God? If you say yes? Then you are already in the arena of miracle, signs and wonders and that includes leading people to Christ.
Now, lets’ continue the first part of our title today, “Six (6) Critical ANALYSIS and SYNTHESIS of Matthew 24 into IMMUTABLE (UNCHANGEABLE) parts from Jesus’s Lips relative to ETERNITY to address these QUESTIONS: Are we going to be here during the TRIBULATION? Is RAPTURE before or after the TRIBULATION? How Crucial are WATER, WIND, FIRE and EARTH to our faith WORK and WALK with the LORD?”
By going to Matthew 24: 1-51
Amplified Bible, Classic Edition
Jesus departed from the temple [a]area and was going on His way when His disciples came up to Him to call His attention to the buildings of the temple and point them out to Him.
2 But He answered them, Do you see all these? Truly I tell you, there will not be left here one stone upon another that will not be thrown down.
3 While He was seated on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately and said, Tell us, when will this take place, and what will be the sign of Your coming and of the end (the completion, the consummation) of the age?
4 Jesus answered them, Be careful that no one misleads you [deceiving you and leading you into error].
5 For many will come in (on the strength of) My name [[b]appropriating the name which belongs to Me], saying, I am the Christ (the Messiah), and they will lead many astray.
6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars; see that you are not frightened or troubled, for this must take place, but the end is not yet.
7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in place after place;
9 Then they will hand you over to suffer affliction and tribulation and put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake.
10 And then many will be offended and repelled and will [e]begin to distrust and desert [Him Whom they ought to trust and obey] and will stumble and fall away and betray one another and pursue one another with hatred.
11 And many false prophets will rise up and deceive and lead many into error.
12 And the love of [f]the great body of people will grow cold because of the multiplied lawlessness and iniquity,
13 But he who endures to the end will be saved.
14 And this good news of the kingdom (the Gospel) will be preached throughout the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then will come the end.
15 So when you see the appalling sacrilege [the abomination that astonishes and makes desolate], spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the Holy Place—let the reader take notice and [g]ponder and consider and heed [this]—
16 Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains;
17 Let him who is on the housetop not come down and go into the house to take anything;
18 And let him who is in the field not turn back to get his overcoat.
19 And alas for the women who are pregnant and for those who have nursing babies in those days!
20 Pray that your flight may not be in winter or on a Sabbath.
21 For then there will be great tribulation (affliction, distress, and oppression) such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now—no, and never will be [again].
22 And if those days had not been shortened, no human being would endure and survive, but for the sake of the elect (God’s chosen ones) those days will be shortened.
23 If anyone says to you then, Behold, here is the Christ (the Messiah)! or, There He is!—do not believe it.
24 For false Christs and false prophets will arise, and they will show great signs and wonders so as to deceive and lead astray, if possible, even the elect (God’s chosen ones).
25 See, I have warned you beforehand.
26 So if they say to you, Behold, He is in the wilderness (desert)—do not go out there; if they tell you, Behold, He is in the secret places or inner rooms—do not believe it.
27 For just as the lightning flashes from the east and shines and [h]is seen as far as the west, so will the coming of the Son of Man be.
28 Wherever there is a fallen body (a corpse), there the vultures (or eagles) will flock together.
29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not shed its light, and the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.
30 Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn and [i]beat their breasts and lament in anguish, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory [in brilliancy and splendor].
31 And He will send out His angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather His elect (His chosen ones) from the four winds, [even] from one end of the [j]universe to the other.
34 Truly I tell you, this generation ([o]the whole multitude of people living at the same time, [p]in a definite, [q]given period) will not pass away till all these things [r]taken together take place.
35 [s]Sky and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away.
36 But of that [exact] day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.
37 As were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.
38 For just as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, [men] marrying and [women] being given in marriage, until the [very] day when Noah went into the ark,
39 And they did not know or understand until the flood came and swept them all away—so will be the coming of the Son of Man.
40 At that time two men will be in the field; one will be taken and one will be left.
41 Two women will be grinding at the hand mill; one will be taken and one will be left.
43 But understand this: had the householder known in what [part of the night, whether in a [v]night or a morning] watch the thief was coming, he would have watched and would not have allowed his house to be [w]undermined and broken into.
44 You also must be ready therefore, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not expect Him.
45 Who then is the faithful, thoughtful, and wise servant, whom his master has put in charge of his household to give to the others the food and supplies at the proper time?
46 Blessed (happy, fortunate, and [x]to be envied) is that servant whom, when his master comes, he will find so doing.
47 I solemnly declare to you, he will set him over all his possessions.
48 But if that servant is wicked and says to himself, My master is delayed and is going to be gone a long time,
49 And begins to beat his fellow servants and to eat and drink with the drunken,
50 The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour of which he is not aware,
51 And will punish him [[y]cut him up by scourging] and put him with the pretenders (hypocrites); there will be weeping and grinding of teeth.

Having reviewed, analyzed and synthesized the entire Matthew 24 into 6 elements above, we can provide answers to our title today,” Six (6) Critical ANALYSIS and SYNTHESIS of Matthew 24 into IMMUTABLE (UNCHANGEABLE) parts from Jesus’s Lips relative to ETERNITY to address these QUESTIONS: Are we going to be here during the TRIBULATION? Is RAPTURE before or after the TRIBULATION? How Crucial are WATER, WIND, FIRE and EARTH to our faith WORK and WALK with the LORD?
The answers are as follows:
We are going to be here live and direct during the tribulation and rapture will be in the course of the tribulation as Jesus returns with the heavenly host where we will be cut up with Him in the air, where two will be standing, one will be taken and the order left. Rapture means cut up with.
Now after this event, begins the wrath of God, when the earth begins to break down into bits and pieces – things begin to break apart, reading Revelation 8,10, and 11, the earth will be wiped out completely – obliterated and annihilated from existence. And then a new heaven and a new earth will come forth from heaven. It is as simple, straightforward as that. No mysteries, no hiding, no bullshitting!
Father, thank You for Your word. Thank You for Your Son that paved the way for our redemption. Thank You for the Holy Spirit that is with us right now, as the anointing in every believer in Christ that leads us into all truth and convicts’ sinners to be drawn to You. I ask Holy Spirit, as many that still have questions, lead them into all truth because the Word of the Father is truth and it is life in Jesus name, Amen.
As many that do not know You, Lord Jesus, I ask that the Spirit of Truth draw them to thyself now and forevermore as the read and meditate on these words above and other words that You will bring their way in the coming days, weeks and months in Jesus name, Amen
