    The Son of man has to return “the second time” to recover the dead in Christ and resurrect them. Not on his “first coming”. The Bible says that the second coming will occur after a string of horrifying events never seen before in our world. There will be great famines, lots of war and international disasters. There would have been be noticeable signs in the stars, the moon and the sun. Then he would return a “Second Time” to collect his saints. It seems like none of these events happened before those people were brought out of their graves in Matthew 27:52-53.

    Jesus also said that ‘he was the only one who has ascended into heaven”(John 3:13). If the people in Matthew 27:52 - 53 went to heaven, then this scripture could not be true. Jesus would have been a liar. But he isn’t a liar. He is the only one that went to heaven. Just like he said he would. People just don’t seem to take Christ at his word.

    This is why we come to the conclusion that these people remained on earth and did not go to heaven.

    I totally disagree. The Jews did not worship every day. Only on the Seventh day. In Genesis 2:2 it says “ By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work.  THEN GOD BLESSED THE SEVENTH DAY AND MADE IT HOLY, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done”. There were no Israelites around, but Christ/The Lord kept the seventh Day “HOLY” in the beginning week, and not every day. In Exodus 16:23 He said to them, “This is what the Lord commanded: ‘Tomorrow is TO BE A DAY OF SABBATH REST, A HOLY SABBATH TO THE LORD. So bake what you want to bake and boil what you want to boil. Save whatever is left and keep it until morning.’” Anytime you have a HOLY SABBATH TO THE LORD, that is not just a day of rest. They also did ceremonies for the Seven Holy Days and the twelve New Moon Sabbaths. This doesn’t mean you can’t open the Bible the other six days.

    This is not some anti Catholic fear mongering. The Catholics have changed God’s law and prophecies for years and for many reasons. Two main reasons why the Catholics changed the Bible over the years . The first is the Catholic’s misinterpretation of the phrase “New Covenant” “. Second, they believe that some of the things in the Bible are just for the Jews so they omit a lot from the Bible. They are not for Catholics. But Jesus Christ made it clear in Rev. 22: 18-19, “that ANYONE who changes (adds or subtracts) anything in the Bible or it’s prophecies, will be punished for it. It also means making changes to the Bible because YOU THINK PARTS OF IT IS JUST FOR JEWISH PEOPLE, is still manipulating and changing Scripture. This scripture pretty much says that for whatever reason anyone has to change anything in the Bible is forbidden. So who does Jesus say will be punished severely with the plagues? Those who have changed and manipulate the Bible. Who has changed the Bible over the years? The Catholics along with the Vatican. It’s kind of easy to depict who the Beast is.

    The scripture was referring to the Pentecost.

    Matt. 19:23-24 indicates that both }kingdom of Heaven" and "Kingdom of God" are the same.

    Regardless, Jesus did Separate the two of them when He the Father is greater than I. If they were one they would be equal and all the same, but Christ explains that they are not. We should teach that God and Christ are separate beings but, they work as one.

    If Jesus rose on Sunday morning, when Mary went to visit the tomb after the Second weekly Sabbath was over, while it was still dark, she would have found Jesus’ body lying there.
