“Did the Apostles understand that I must die and resurrect?” This was the question I heard the Lord ask me as I lay upon my bed in the darkness during the Passover season of 2008 in April. Stunned, but not surprised that God would use my quiet time to speak to me, I answered Him aloud as is my custom. I told the Lord that the Apostles did not know that He would die and resurrect.
The Lord’s response caused me to freeze up. He asked me if the Apostles did not know He had to resurrect, why then would they even bother to ask Him in Matthew 24 about the sign of His return? They did not know He was going away!
I struggled to find the most logical answer to this enigma. Then it came to me. The Holy Spirit had put the question into their mouths. The Lord told me that I had answered correctly. The Scriptures were quite clear that the Apostles were told that Yeshua (Jesus) would die and resurrect. The Scriptures are also clear that the Apostles understood not what Yeshua (Jesus) was talking about. Matthew 17:22-23 (Yeshua (Jesus) reveals death), Apostles grieve but don’t understand.
This is the same timeframe as Mark 9:29-32, (Yeshua (Jesus) reveals death), they (the Apostles), understood not and it was hid from them (by God). John 20:6-9 (John believes Yeshua (Jesus) has risen), “As yet they understood not the Scripture that He (Yeshua (Jesus)) must rise from the dead.” Since the Apostles did not understand Yeshua (Jesus) was going away, they would not have asked this question at all unless the Holy Spirit had put the question in their mouths to ask.
If then, the question was asked by the Holy Spirit, it stands to reason that the question is perfectly asked with no errors. If this is the case, then why is the question singular and not plural if there are indeed two comings of Yeshua (Jesus) one for the Church and one for Israel? The question is; “What will be THE SIGN (singular) of Thy COMING (singular)?
Remember, this is the Holy Spirit asking the question not the Apostles. There is no mistaking the fact that there is only ONE coming mentioned! Since the Holy Spirit asked the question, there is no deception in the question. Therefore, there is indeed only ONE SIGN the Church should be looking for which will reveal Yeshua (Jesus)’ one and only coming.
Yeshua (Jesus) repeats this fact when He answers the question. Yeshua (Jesus) says that immediately AFTER the tribulation of those days, the sun would be darkened and the moon would not give its light and the stars of heaven would fall to the earth. He completes His answer by saying, that then they (the inhabitants of the earth who rejected Him), would see THE SIGN (singular) of the Son of Man.
This does not mean the Church will not experience THE SIGN; He is singling out the non believers, because it is them that will be the ones to actually experience the judgment of God known as THE SIGN of the Son of Man. The Church will be spared the judgment, but will know full well what is happening to the non believers at this terrible time of God’s judgment! Matthew 24:29-30.

For you to understand what I am saying, I need to tell you just what THE SIGN of the Son of Man is. I lay there in the dark conversing with the Lord, when the Lord asked me the final series of questions, which shook me to my core as I understood their implications. Yeshua (Jesus)’ warnings about being deceived about His return began to take on a whole new importance.
The Spirit of God was wise to put this question into the mouths of the Apostles as it would be the key to understanding just when Yeshua (Jesus) would return, and what would be the key to avoiding deceptions concerning Yeshua (Jesus)’ return.
The Lord told me that the Pharisees had asked Him for a sign, that He was the promised Messiah, since He was driving out those who bought and sold in the temple. He replied, “An evil and adulteress generation seeks after a sign, and no sign shall be given it but the sign of Jonah; for as Jonah was in the belly of the great fish three days and three nights, so shall the Son of Man be in the heart of the earth. Matthew 12:39-40.
The Lord next asked me, “Did I not say, ‘I am the light of the world?” I replied “Yes.” “If then, the light of the world went into the center of the earth, what happened to the earth?” I replied, “It went into darkness.” “Yes,” He said, “But for how long?” “For three days and nights,” I answered. “That is correct,” The Lord said. “I gave the Scribes and Pharisees only ONE SIGN that I was the Messiah. Do you think I am going to give the Church a different SIGN?”
His words cut through me like a hot knife as I understood what He was telling me. He was telling me, just what THE SIGN of the SON of MAN was! Three days and nights without light, THREE DAYS OF DARKNESS!
Like lightning, the peace I had been experiencing during our conversation turned to concern. I begged The Lord to verify that it was indeed Him who was talking to me. Just as quickly, to calm me down, the Lord began to give me Scriptures to verify, what He had just revealed to me.
He began by asking me how many hours darkness was over the land of Israel, while He hung on the cross. I answered three. He asked me if I thought the two might somehow be related, the three days of darkness, and the three hours of darkness over the land of Israel as He hung on the cross.
I told him I supposed it could be a smaller version of the same sign. He told me I was correct. He used a smaller version of a greater truth. The three hours of darkness, were intended to represent the three days the light of the world, would be missing as He lay in the tomb.
I told the Lord He needed to show me more proof that The Sign of the Son of Man was indeed three days of darkness, three days without light. He took me to the Exodus; the final plague upon Egypt, which was the death of the firstborn.
He asked me to tell Him what accompanied the death of the firstborn in the Scriptures. I answered that I was not sure. He told me to grab my Bible and look it up. I did. I almost fell off my bed! Three days of darkness accompanied the death of the firstborn in Egypt! Exodus 10:21-22. He asked me if I was beginning to see a pattern. I said, “Yes.”
I asked the Lord if there were any more proofs in the Scriptures. He replied that I should go to the covenant (contract), He had made with Abraham. I understood, before I even turned my Bible to the page. I remembered asking God as a child, why a terrible darkness would come upon Abraham during a contract uniting him to a holy God. I was about to get my answer, 40 years later! Abraham had seen THE SIGN of the Son of Man! Genesis 15:8-13. But why?
The Lord explained to me that He showed Pharaoh THE SIGN, because he had asked Moses, for a sign that the Lord was indeed the true God of the universe. Pharaoh had asked Moses, “Who is the Lord that I should obey Him?” Translation, “Give me a sign that your God is God indeed!” This is the same attitude of the Scribes and Pharisees. Exodus 5:2.
But what about Abraham? Abraham had asked the same question, but with an honest heart before God. Abraham asked God how he could be sure that God was going to give him the land of Canaan. But, he was only being cautious that it was indeed the God of the universe he was talking too. Therefore, God showed him THE SIGN with a heart of Love, rather than a heart full of vengeance. Genesis 15:2-7.
I asked for one more Scripture to confirm that this was indeed THE SIGN of the Son of Man. The Lord told me to go to Genesis. He asked me, when He had placed the sun and the moon in the heavens to shed light upon the earth? I replied that it was on the fourth day. He asked me, “Then how long was the earth in darkness?” “Three days,” I said. “Right again,” the Lord said.
“But you said, ‘Let there be light,” and there was light, I said. “Yes, but I also explain, that I separated the light from the darkness. I did not permit the light to enter the darkness for three days, in order that honor might be shown for the death and resurrection which was to come to pay for mankind’s sin.
I put a barrier between the light and the darkness. So, now do you understand that THE SIGN of the Son of Man is three days without light, three days of darkness?” “Yes,” I said. Then it came to me, and I shuddered as I lay upon my bed. I realized that there was only going to be ONE coming of Yeshua (Jesus). It needed to be preceded by the ONE AND ONLY SIGN spoken of by Yeshua (Jesus) himself. The sun would grow dark and the moon would not give its light, and the stars of heaven would fall to the earth.
The stars falling to the earth, would be what appeared to be happening as the earth was hurled through space leaving its orbit from around the sun, being flung into a place of darkness just as had happened in the beginning of Genesis 1:2. This, would start the countdown to Yeshua (Jesus)’ return, which would occur THREE DAYS LATER!
