Q. I want to thank you for your ministry and your work that you do for our Lord Jesus Christ.
My question is this.
Matthew 24:19 says: And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
Does this mean that during the tribulation (before the great tribulation) that women will be able to conceive and give birth? Or is this a symbolic message of some sort?
Thank you and GOD bless.
A. I think the passage is to be taken literally. Natural human functions among believers who aren’t perfected as well as living non-believers will take place all through the Tribulation and Millennium. Matthew 24:19 which you quoted refers to the beginning of the Great Tribulation. Matt. 24:37-39 is about the time of the 2nd Coming. Isaiah 65:23 speaks of the Millennium.
