For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

17:24 as the lightning. No matter how difficult the situation becomes, the believer must always reject any claims that Christ has already come, and is hiding somewhere (Luke 17:21; also see Matthew 24:26). When He does first come, believers will suddenly be translated from this earth into His presence (Luke 17:34-36; also I Thessalonians 4:16-17). When He later comes finally again to the earth itself, His presence will hardly be secret, for it will be seen all over the world.
