What do you believe Jesus Spiritually Meant when he said:?

For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. (Matthew 24:27)
And do you think he was talking about the way that when you watch the sun come up in the morning, it is just a glimmer at first, then a bit more, and Finally it just Glows Bright ?
and do You think that this could be describing the spiritual awakening of our very own Consciousness ?


  1. When you put that scripture with the rest of the the bible, it clearly states Jesus is returning. Its not a metaphor, its not symbolic, it means… He is coming.
    No spiritual awakening of counsciousness, its God coming to get His own.

  2. it means simply this
    as sure as the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, so is the surety that Christ shall return.

  3. He is refering to the end times, when he will come down to bring his people to heaven. He says that so you will not be deceived by false prophets, who claim to be jesus. For when he comes, in all his glory, it will be obvious that he is the true messiah.

  4. He was speaking of the end of this system of things and his second coming.The whole chapter is providing us prophecies of the end. He was saying that his 2nd coming would be invisible.We will not be able to see him.But the composite sign that he gave us here is a lot of small signs that make up one large one.When we see all these things know that he is even at the doors.Matthew 24:33(1 Timothy 6:16) the one alone having immortality, who dwells in unapproachable light, whom not one of men has seen or can see. To him be honor and might everlasting. Amen.
    This was written after Jesus resurrection no one could ever see him again unless they went to heaven,but those on the earth would see him only with the eyes of understanding.

  5. Meaning: ‘For when, in this age of apostasy and discord, the true religion of Christ comes again, it will be as the light of the morning, dawning gradually and increasing in brilliance until the millennial day when it shall cover the whole earth. Then shall the Son of Man come to reign personally upon the earth.’

  6. He was talking about when he returns to earth. It will be such that every single person will see him and know that the son of God has returned.

  7. Whenever you have a question about a single verse, it helps to look at the verses surrounding it. In this case, Jesus had just said that His arrival will not be hidden in a secret chamber:
    Matthew 24:26
    (26) Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.
    He’s just told us what it’s not going to be. Now He tells us how it will be:
    (27) For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
    There is no mistaking the dawn when it occurs and there will be no mistaking the return of Jesus the Christ and the whole world will know it. And all, scorners, mockers, unbelievers alike will bow to Him:
    Romans 14:11
    (11) For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.
    It is written here:
    Isaiah 45:22-23
    (22) Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.
    (23) I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.
    It will be an awakening alright but to the reality that is Jesus the Christ
