The spiritual interpretation of “When shall these things happen,
and what shall be the sign of Your coming,
Firstly, when shall these things happen?
All His parables (these things) are only gifted for the spiritual minded to perceive the interpretation of His sayings when his repentance comes into his spiritual life for his shortened days till the end of his fleshly age. Matt. 13:34-35 “All these things Yahushua spoke to the crowds in parables, and He did not speak to them without a parable. This was to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet: I shall open My mouth in parables; I shall utter things hidden since the foundation of the world.” Matt. 6:33 “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”; John 14:26 "But the Helper, Ruach haKodesh (Holy Spirit), whom the Father shall send in My name, He shall teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you." His parables are to help us understand all the works of opposition as His Kingdom of Life is opposed to the kingdom of death (Love vs. hatred, faith vs. fear, Life vs. death, Light vs. darkness) and we cannot serve two masters which are of the kingdoms of opposition.
Secondly, what does the sign of His coming mean?
The sign of His first coming is only given to the repentant one turning away from the kingdom of wickedness to prepare his spiritual work for Him like the Ninevites repented at the preaching of Jonah (Luke 11:29-32) so no mortal of this (today's) generation is given to it except for his repentance to the baptism into his spiritual life. Yahushua our Messiah has forewarned us that many, who teach the signs of times such as pre-tribulation, post-tribulation, preterism, erroneously claim the end times. The sign of Jonah was the repentance of the Ninevites thru his preaching so the sign of SON of MAN is for all to repent at His Word of Light!
Thirdly, what is the sign of the end of age?
The mortal life has both the beginning and the end of its age with the study of 1 Cor. 15:50-56, and the immortal life has no beginning and no end. The answer is the end of his fleshly age for everyone, that has his knowledge of good and evil in creating all his deeds of opposition that must be separated at the end of his fleshly age, who comes into this world to learn His Law of Life on the opposing works (Light vs. darkness, Life vs. death, love vs. hatred, faith vs. fear, obedience vs. lawlessness, etc.) The one who has endured to the end (of his mortality) shall be saved (Matt. 10:22). The one is an individual to accomplish all His things (Matt. 5:17-19), not the end of materialic world. The 1st earth and heaven is perceived spiritually as the mortal (perishable) mind and body, and the new heaven and earth as the spiritual mind and body, the Flood of Noah as the sanctification.
1 Cor. 3:13-16 “each man's work will become evident; for the day (of immortality after death) will show it because it is to be revealed with fire, and the fire itself will test the quality of each man's work. If any man's work which he has built on it remains, he will receive a reward. If any man's work is burned up, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire. Do you not know that you are a temple of Elohim and that the Spirit of Elohim dwells in you?” The suffering of his loss is his work of lawlessness (foolishness) and his reward is his work of His righteousness, as to measure the valuation of his spiritual life in His Kingdom. 1 Cor. 10:11 “Now these things happened to them as an example, and they were written for our instruction, upon whom the ends of the (mortal) ages have come.”
His first (Alpha) coming is for His Word of Light sown in the repentant heart for the shortened days,
and His last (Omega) coming is for his spiritual production reaped at the end of every fleshly age.
(Matt. 25; Each in his own order: 1 Cor. 15:22-24).
Every spiritual birth in his/her fleshly age (Matthew 24):
The first 26 verses is explained in His warnings of what is expected from the beginning of spiritual life to the end of fleshly age, and of the Messianic falsehood taught among those (hellfire preachers) of the “rapture” pre- or post-tribulations who claim their knowledge of this revelation of His so-called end-time prophecy, and the dates of His so-called unfulfilled “second coming” that wait for some 2000 years which is unscriptural.
Verses 27-41 is explained from the beginning of spiritual life till the end of fleshly age as His Alpha coming is to sanctify the repentant heart with His Spirit of Life (Spirit of EliYahu/Elijah) to dwell in and His Omega coming is at the end of fleshly age (harvest time).
Verses 1-2: No fleshly temple (perishable body) can be saved except for the spiritual (imperishable body) temple, for every one has his knowledge of good and evil words in creating the opposing works that must be separated into the opposing kingdoms/bodies.
Verse 3: These things (His parables) are to examine everyone from the beginning of the spiritual life to the end of the fleshly age by opening the repentant heart with His Word of Light sown in preparing for the spiritual trial for the last days in obeying His Law of Life and in refraining all the works of lawlessness.
The sign of His last coming (harvest time) is to return the spiritual body/production at the end of every mortal age. His first coming is to open the repentant heart to sanctify his spiritual life for the last days just like Stephen being filled with Holy Spirit till he saw His appearing in Acts 7:55-56 prior to his death.
Verses 4-8: The beginning of the spiritual life (first half of His 70th week) is to understand all His instructions (these things to happen) of the works of opposition and to study all His commandments of Life.
Verses 9-13: The spiritual trial/affliction/persecution (tribulation) must be endured in the spiritual life till the end of fleshly age, for many do the deeds of lawlessness/falsehood.
Verse 14: You are His temple of Light to shine to all where your good deeds are seen as His gospel of Life is preached of the repentance for the forgiveness of sins as a testimony of salvation.
Verses 15-20: Completion of first half of His 70th week: You are to flee (come out of her acts of immorality/abomination) in your spiritual trial/wilderness with the spiritual battle against the works of opposition/lawlessness being tempted/afflicted/persecuted of you, even to the end of your fleshly age.
Verse 21: (Second half of His 70th week begins): He that dwells in your spiritual temple (heart) brings His wrath/punishment (great tribulation) to overcome/rebuke the world of lawlessness dominated by the harlotry (the queen of uncleanness/lawlessness) that is built on the mortal minds, to strengthen your spiritual life as you keep His commandments of Life to the end of your fleshly age.
Verse 22: Your spiritual (imperishable) life is shortened in the spiritual trial to preserve your valuation of the obedience to His Law of Life till the end of your fleshly age while your fleshly (perishable) body cannot be saved.
Verses 23-26: The doctrines of His appearance are falsely preached among the fleshly minded, for His first appearing is only for the spiritual birth to begin his spiritual life for the last days and His last appearing is to draw his spiritual body up with Him in the Kingdom of Life at the end of his fleshly age.
Verse 27: His Lightning (Word of Light) comes to the repentant heart/door that is knocked to listen to Him) as His Spirit of Life is descended from His Kingdom of Life to dwell in the sanctified temple (heart). Many have experienced their spiritual births at His first appearing to begin their spiritual lives for the last days such as Shaul was flashed by His Light (Acts 9:3-6) to prepare his work for Him.
Verse 28: The corpse (body of sin) is buried with Messiah in baptism in which we are raised up with Him through our faith as our old self is laid aside with its lawless deeds and our new self is renewed daily to a true knowledge of His truths. The vultures are the workers of His consummation (wrath) against the works of lawlessness.
Verse 29: The tribulation of those days are the shortened days (His appointment for the repentant one) from the beginning of the spiritual life once the kingdom of darkness (darkened sun) dominated by Satan and his evil followers fall down to the earth (under his feet) till the end of his fleshly age. The tribulation is affliction/persecution in the spiritual trials as to overcome the world of lawlessness while building the obedience to His Law of Life to the time of His return (second appearing) at the end of fleshly age.
Verses 30-31: His coming (harvest) is for each one in his own order (1 Cor. 15:23) is at the end of his fleshly age to collect all spiritual productive works out of what (His Word of Life) is sown in the sanctified heart and to throw away all unproductive works to the kingdom (perishable body) of lawlessness mourned/lost/consumed to the lake of fire.
The works of Satan (darkened sun/master of darkness and moon/body of darkness) and his followers (stars/spirits of lawlessness and powers of lawlessness) that war against the spiritual body are finished when he is caught up with the Master of Light at the end of the fleshly age, for His Light (lightning) strikes down the kingdom of darkness. Rom. 7:22-24 speaks of the inner battle during the shortened days. 1 Cor. 5:5 speaks of the destruction of every fleshly body and every spiritual body saved thru our Messiah.
Verse 32: The green leaves (works of healing) of your fig tree (spiritual life) are not hurt by the spirits of lawlessness in this world of mortality, but when the leaves turn dry as the summer is at the end, in which means that the fleshly age is finished as the flesh (dry/brown leaves) falls down to the dust (kingdom of darkness).
Verses 33-35: Every fleshly birth coming into the world of mortality (this wicked generation) and his spiritual birth has his deeds examined by His Word of Life, where all his wicked deeds are judged in which his kingdom/body (present heaven and earth) of lawlessness shall pass away (die) and all his good deeds that are saved in His Kingdom of Life (new heaven and earth) shall not pass away (die). The parable of Matthew 25 is understood to separate the good deeds (wheat) from the evil ones (tares) of all who have the knowledge (tree) of good and evil thru the bloodline of Adam to measure their spiritual values to preserve in His Kingdom of Life like the net of both good and bad fish to separate at the end of every fleshly age. The Master of Life does not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them (Luke 9:56), so all the souls are to be drawn up to Himself (John 12:32).
Verse 36: The end of your fleshly age is unknown to you except the heavenly Father.
Verses 37-39: His coming (harvest time) is to separate all the works of foolishness that are performed by the fleshly minded into the kingdom of death, from all the works of goodness that are performed by the spiritual minded at their ends of fleshly ages. Interestingly, as to Noah's ark raised (left) above the earth by the Flood and the flesh (disobedient ones) taken away (buried) it is compared with the one taken away (buried) and the one left (raised) at His Omega coming at his fleshly death (verses 40-41). It is illuminated to perceive the picture of Noah's ark with the spiritual body saved from the natural body that is perishable at his fleshly death. Noah's grace only found is His Spirit of oneness throwing out many spirits of lawlessness in His Flood. Shaul (Paul) in Roman chapter 7, in his inner man, had experienced battling against the spirits of lawlessness, so do all the spiritual beings today.
Verses 40-41: The spiritual body/soul is taken (caught up) with Him and his fleshly/dying body will be left. “The two men in the field…two women at the mill…one will be taken and one will be left” parable is understood that everyone has the natural body and the spiritual body.
1 Cor. 15:22 “For as in Adam all die, so also in the Messiah all will be made alive.”; 42-44 “... It is sown a perishable body, it is raised an imperishable body; it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body.” “The two shall become one flesh” saying is perceived that every fleshly birth has two bodies (mortal body and immortal body) because of the knowledge of good and evil in his mind, for the one who joins himself to a prostitute (body of sin), and the one who joins himself to YHWH (body of Messiah) but his fleshly expiration will separate the two bodies of opposing deeds (wheat and tares). 1 Cor. 6:15-20.
Verses 42-47: The wise one (spiritual minded) is always on the alert for His coming at his death.
Verses 48-51: The foolish one (mortal minded) is not on the alert of His coming, but does the works of foolishness, saying His coming is delayed in which it is a future event, but he shall be shameful at the end of his fleshly age.
