Eagle, the Body and the
(Matthew 24; Luke 17) Parable following a description given by Jesus of His second coming. When and where that is to happen He refuses to tell His disciples, but He assures them, that when it does happen it will be so evident that they will realize it of themselves, just as the eagles find by instinct and with their senses a carcass without further indication. Hence, there is no need to fear deception by false prophets, announcing the second coming of Christ; the very fact that this so-called Christ needs announcing is proof that he is not the true Christ. Let, them therefore live in peaceful preparation until they actually find themselves before their Lord and Master.
