That night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left. Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
Jesus explains his disciples as to how things would happen on the day Son of Man is revealed. He explains three situations:
- First, bed situation – night time.
- Second, grinding situation – might be evening time.
- Third, field situation – could be morning time.
Three things happen in three different timings. From this we can be observe that,
For the one who lives in a country where it is night, for the other, who lives in another country, it would be evening and for another, who lives in other country, it would be morning. So, we can not guess the exact timing when Son of Man would be revealed. But, as told in Revelation 1:7, “He is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him…”, everyone will see Jesus’ coming.
Jesus’ revelation is not restricted to a single country or a single race, but for all people who live in different places; they would see his arrival at the same time.
Let’s prepare ourselves for His coming!
Let’s prepare others for His coming!!
