24:15 Daniel the prophet. The Lord here confirms that Daniel really was a “prophet,” in spite of the claim by some modern critics.
24:15 whoso readeth. This interesting parenthesis implies that this warning must be “read.” It could not apply to Christ’s immediate audience, both because they had heard it, and also because they would not be living at the time of its fulfillment. Other Scriptures indicate that all true Christians will already have been “caught up” by the Lord Jesus at the first event associated with His second coming (I Thessalonians 4:17), so that those still on the earth during this period must read these events in the Bible or Christian literature in order to learn of them. It is important, therefore, right now, for believers to blanket the earth with Bibles and sound books of Christian evidences and Bible exposition, to counter the evolutionary pantheistic humanism that will be the enforced world religion during this coming period.
