"RE:  Lauren--"When Shall the Coming of the Son of Man Be""

 
Hello, John and Doves,
 
Lauren, you asked,
"...WHEN AND WHERE IS ALL
THIS marrying and buying and selling taking place "that shall also be in the days of the Son of man's
revealing"?  Luke 17:26
 
The answer is that this has already taken place.  The primary interpretation of this passage is two-
fold.  First of all, we are witnesses of multiple marriages by both the small and great.  Secondly,
the manifold mercantile operations of Wall Street (as well as of various other stock exchanges)
are an express fulfillment of Luke 17:27.
 
Furthermore, you asked,
And WHERE will “two women be grinding at the mill together and two people be in one bed?
This passage is to be taken as a proverb.  That is to say, the Greek words to describe today's
world in prima facie detail did not exist in Jesus' day--nor did they exist in Aramaic or Hebrew.
As a result, we have to interpret this passage, according to wisdom given by the Holy Spirit.
 
The Holy Spirit tells us that women will be a regular, ordinary, and accepted part of the work-
force in the Last Days.
 
Now, the following is a little shocking [it is in the KJV!!]
I tell you, in that night there shall be two [men] in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other
shall be left.
 
The meaning of this should be obvious.  Even a Christian in a backslidden condition is covered
by the Blood.  Once saved, always saved.
 
"He who comes to me I will in no wise cast out."  John 6:37
 
And don't forget,
"My Father, which gave [them] me, is greater than all; and no [man] is able to pluck [them]
out of my Father's hand."  John 10:29
 
Now, let me address the following:
"If the ‘battle of Armageddon’ takes place before the “7th” trumpet and the ‘seven’ vials
are poured out after the battle, and the Messiah returning at the "7th" trumpet..."
 
The final battle of Har Maggedon occurs twice, once at the end of the Great Tribulation
[Ezekiel 38], and once again at the true end of Daniel's 70th week--at the end of the
Millennium [Rev 20:8].
 
The Millennium is the shadow of Eternity for the believer.  That is why there are two ful-
fillments of the battle of Armageddon.
 
As such, the battle[s] of Gog and Magog must occur at the end of its [their] respective
period[s].
 
It might help to realize that the Psalm 83 war may well be at hand--at a time that punctuates
the end of the Church Age.  I hope this has helped.
 
In HaShem,
