Christ's "presence" and "arrival"

UPDATED

A QUESTION:
What makes the presence of Jesus with the anointed throughout the Centuries (Matt.28:20), different than his last day presence mentioned at Matt.24:3?

REPLY

Astute question :)
Please consider Mal.3:1,2,3,4
When the last of the 144000 candidates are chosen (previous to being sealed), Satan creates an impossible spiritual climate (Great Tribulation). All these last ones, in ignorance, fall into sin (Matt.25:5; Isa.63:5; 59:16; Eze.22:30; Jer.5:1; 8:6; Eze.13:5; 14:14,20). If it were not for Christ standing up in our behalf (Dan.12:1; Psalm94:17; 13:3; Rev.13:7,8,9), we would have been finished (Matt.24:4,22).
If you will notice in Mal.3:1,3...Jesus goes to his "temple" to cleanse them of this sin. Only those "written in the book" (Dan.12:1 d) will receive this "rescue". Who are they?
Rev.13:8,14 and Rev.20:4,15; 14:9,10; 15:2; 19:20 help us to see what is involved.
Those deemed worthy of rescue (Mal.3:16; Nahum1:13; Psalm107:10,14; 86:13; Jer.30:8; 1Pet.2:9,10; Rev.9:6,10,14), are those whose heart can repent of the idolatry of the Image of the Beast (Joel1:13; Rev.11:3; Mal.2:4; Isa.22:12; Jer.4:8; Eze.7:18; 21:12; Joel1:8,9; 2:14).

Knowing that the last invited ones desperately need assistance to survive the demonic deceptions of the last days (1Tim.4:1; Rev.16:13,14,15; 2Thess.2:2,9,10; Matt.24:4,5,24,25; Rev.12:9)...
"Michael"/Jesus Christ goes to his "temple" (1Cor.3:16; Eph.2:21,22; 1Pet.4:17). This is an augmented arrival to his Temple in comparison to his presence with Chosen ones throughout the previous centuries (Rev.2:1; Mal.3:1; Rev.7:3). During this time of test, they are being refined and sorted (Isa.1:27,28; Prov.17:3; Rev.3:18,19,21,22; Luke21:36; Matt.24:42,43,44; Luke12:40; Matt.3:12)...wheat from weeds/ faithful from unfaithful. This purposeful arrival to his temple, is previous to the Tribulation and arrival to the un-anointed. (Rev.7:3) Those Invited which are not inclined toward repentance, are not considered awake (Jer.8:6,7,8,9; Matt.25:5; Rom.13:11; 11:8; Isa.29:10; 56:10; Jer.51:57; 2Pet.2:1). They are drunk with power, hatred, and the doctrines of men (Jer.51:7; Rev.18:3; Joel1:4,5,6,7; Rev.9:8,3; Matt.24:49; 1John3:15; Jer.5:11,12,13; Jer.23:16,17,18; Jer.23:21,22; 14:14) which doctrines are, in reality, sourced in Satan's Abyss of darkness and death, and it's agents (Rev.9:1,2,3,10,11; Eze.2:6; Luke10:19; Rev.11:7; 16:13,14; 12:9,15; John8:44; Jer.9:2,3,4,5,6; 1:15; 5:15; Isa.39:3; Luke21:20; Jer.4:18). Just as God's people before them, they do not realize the time of their inspection (1Thess.5:6,7; Matt.24:42; Luke19:41,42,43,44; Mark.13:37).

As soon as the required number of the remnant becomes sealed...the rest of the invited ones miss out (Matt.25:10,11,12,13; 22:14; Eze.13:9; Luke13:24; 2Cor.6:2). The opportunity to become sealed in this time of the end, is limited (Zeph.2:2,3).

So to get back to your question,
Hopefully you can see that the last days bring a great spiritual test upon the Chosen ones.

Without Christ to assist them, they would not attain to salvation (Matt.24:22 "saved" Matt.19:25,26). Jesus "comes" to be present with his chosen temple, to refine them and lead them out of sin, into repentance (Isa.49:8; 55:6; Rev.7:14; Jer.30:7). He does this by sending his final prophets (Rev.11:3; Mal.3:1; Matt.25:6), the "four angels" who have already been awoken, loosed, and have repented (Rev.9:14; 11:3). These herald the other candidates to awaken (Rev.12:6; Isa.40:3; 60:1; Eph.5:14; Isa.2:5; 52:2; 58:8; Matt.22:3,4; Mal.4:1,5,6; Matt.17:11)...sacrifice their lives to the Beast (Rev.6:9,11; 11:7; John16:2; Isa.66:5; Luke6:22; Rev.11:9,10), and join in the battle for Truth (Joel2:1; Zeph.1:16; Jer.4:5,6,4,8,14,18,19,21,22,27,31; 50:2; 8:19; Eze.21:22; Rev.9:16,17,18,19; 19:11,14,15; Heb.4:12; 2Cor.10:4; Rev.1:20; 12:7,10,11).
