We've spoken about this same question of audience in reference to Revelation Chapter Four and onwards, but it is an important question to ask ourselves. Did the audience somehow suddenly change? We discovered in my book "Is Revelation for the Church" ,that as an epistle, the audience cannot change part way through the letter. Likewise, when Jesus is speaking to His disciples, in the beginning of Matthew 24, he is still speaking to them throughout the conversation about End Times events. It is wrong to conclude the message suddenly refers to non-believing Jews. We must stay consistent and not reinterpret the audience to suit our preconceived eschatological ideas.
