THERE THE VULTURES WILL GATHER
While His first coming was quiet, humble and obscure, the Lord Jesus tells us that His second coming will be dramatic, cosmic, and very obvious. The first advent was in the little town of Bethlehem. The second advent will happen in all the skies. He says in Matthew 24:27, For just as the lightning comes from the east, and flashes even to the west, so shall the coming of the Son of Man be. And then, in the following verse, we find this mysterious phrase, a phrase that does not seem to fit Jesus’ discourse about the end time.
Matthew 24:28. Wherever the corpse is, there the vultures will gather.
