“If they say to you, “He is in the desert,” do not go out there;
If they say, “he is in the inner rooms,” do not believe it”. (Mathew 24:26)
If someone is in the desert or in the inner rooms, what is being highlighted is that person’s presence is not readily visible. Because Jesus contrasts this aspect with his visibility in the very next verse: “For just as the lightning comes from the East, and is SEEN as far as the West, so will be the coming (“presence,” NW) of the Son of Man be.” (Mathew 24:27 compare 2Thess 2:1, 2)
Interestingly, Jehovah’s Witnesses are known for their proclamation that Jesus’s presence is invisible!
Ironically, this is the very thing that the Bible asks people ‘not to believe.’
Yet, what to say about the millions who believe them!!!
