The Sabbath-Restriction Sign
In the
prophetic answer that Christ gave to Peter, James, John, and Andrew's query, of how Christ's disciples will know when the end time has come (after completion of His Gospel mission to the whole world), Jesus then specifically instructed –
"then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.
Let the one who is on the housetop not go down to take what is in his house,
and let the one who is in the field not turn back to take his cloak.
 And alas for women who are pregnant and for those who are nursing infants in those days! 
Pray that your flight may not be in winter or on a Sabbath."
Matthew 24:16-20.
are the words of the One who defied the traditional sabbath-restrictions of His own time in order to heal sickness and to set free from demonic bondage. Yet this future time is more serious a calamity than any sickness or demonic bondage could ever be! This future time, as Jesus described it, threatens the lives of whole families!
would He, who defied Pharisaic sabbath restrictions, ask His disciples to pray that it would not happen on a sabbath day when the issue is to save the lives of their families and avoid being victims of an unprecedented massacre throughout Judea? Was He trying to protect the sabbath? Certainly not!
from the primary implication of His statement that the particular day of this end-time event (and so the timing of what follows) has not been set by God, this also implies that at that future time there will be a governing authority in Judea no less bigoted than was the Pharisaic legal oversight of Israel's religion during the days of Christ's own ministry in Judea in 30 AD, and it is already there and flexing its Zionist muscles.
is the scenario that will develop in Judea, perhaps in the state that currently calls itself Israel!
  I therefore advise Christians who have a choice to live elsewhere!
