Throughout the book, Twenty-Four, Dr. Marc Wheway identifies twenty-four signs from Mathew, Chapter 24 (the Olivet Discord), focusing on the end times. The signs of the time reveal the season of Christ’s return. While no one knows the day and the hour, the season can be known through the linear events listed that are being fulfilled, leading into the tribulation.
The end time signs will continue and even escalate during the Tribulation and the Great Tribulation, concluding with the return of Jesus Christ at the end of the age. The Olivet Discord (Matt. 24, Mk. 13, Lu. 21) reveals much about the things to come through the signs, which always point to Jesus and His return.
On this side of the Tribulation and during the Tribulation, there is one requirement outside of knowing Christ: to endure to the end. “The one who endures until the end shall be saved.” (Matt. 10:22, 24:13) “Here calls for the endurance of the saints.” (Rev. 13:10, 14:12, cf. 1:9, 2:10, 3:10, 12:17) The same message was given to each of the seven churches addressed in the book of Revelation (Rev. 2-3). Those (only those, those alone) who endure to the end reap the reward. On every occasion, the reward conveys eternal life. (Rev. 2:7, 10-11, 17, 26-28, 3:5, 12, 20-21)
The message is, therefore, endure (Matt. 24:13), either this side of the tribulation that you will avoid the hour of trouble (Rev. 3:10) or if not, then on the other side that you will avoid falling short at the final judgement (Matt. 25:31-46).
