Matthew 24:3-8

The Sign of Christ's Coming

Matthew 24:3: “And as he” [Christ] “sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples" [Peter, James, John and Andrew] "came unto him” [Christ] “privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be" [The great earthquake, see verse 2: “…There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.”] "and what shall be the sign of thy coming," [The first five seals] "and of the end of the world?” The Sixth and Seventh Seals. For a better understanding read the Sixth and Seventh Seal reports.

Matthew 24:4: “And Jesus answered and said unto them,”
[Peter, James, John and Andrew] “Take heed that no man deceive you.”

Matthew 24:5: “For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.”

Matthew 24:6: “And ye”
[Peter, James, John and Andrew] “shall hear of wars and rumours of wars:" [Peter, James, John and Andrew will be brought back in the last day, before the return of Christ, they will hear of wars and rumours of wars] "see that ye” [Peter, James, John and Andrew] “be not troubled: for all these things” [False Christ, wars and rumors of wars] “must come to pass, but the end" [Of the Fourth Kingdom] "is not yet.”

Matthew 24:7: “For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.”
The prophecies in verses 5 to 7 are contained in the first two seals.

Matthew 24:8: “All these”
[Wars and rumours of wars, nations rising against nations, etc.] “are the beginning of sorrows.” The famines, pestilences, and earthquakes are the beginning judgments/sorrows for the people of the earth.
