Matthew decrypts Luke: the first layer.

First notice that Matthew 24:21-29 is a unit all dealing with the "great tribulation" (vss. 21 & 29)...

"For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened. Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together. Immediately after the tribulation of those days..."

Now notice that Matthew is paralleled by Luke...

"And they shall say to you, See here; or, see there: go not after them, nor follow them. 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." Luke 17:23,24

[Matthew says: "Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. ... Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert (=here?); go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers (=there?); believe it not. For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be."]

"... And he said unto them, Wheresoever the body is, thither will the eagles be gathered together." Luke 17:37

[Matthew says: "For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together."]
