Be careful to take English translations of the Bible, or any another, at face value. I have seen a number of mistranslations in the KJV and others. When questions arise about a Scripture with two differing points of view, I try to go back to the original translation in Greek or Hebrew or Aramaic. You should try to dig into the original meaning of things yourself, with the Holy Spirit’s assistance, of course.
For instance, I believe that the phrase “immediately after the tribulation” in Matthew 24:29 has been mistranslated: “Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken” (Matthew 24:29 KJV).
The Greek word for “immediately” in Matthew 24:29 is STRONGS NT 1161: δέ, de, deh is a primary particle (adversative or continuative), which can be translated “but, and, etc.:—also, and, but, moreover, now (often unexpressed in English).”
The Greek word for “after” in Matthew 24:29 is STRONGS NT 3326 bμετά, metá, met-ah’ that properly denotes accompaniment. It primarily means “amid.” 345 times metá is translated “with” in Scripture, 88 times it is translated “after,” and 5 times translated “among.” It can also be translated together, when, since, etc.
Therefore, I believe a more proper translation for Matthew 24:29 would be something like: “And accompanying the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken” (Matthew 24:29)… or “Also with the tribulation…” or “But amid the tribulation…” or “Moreover amid the tribulation…” You get the idea.
Hope this helps.
