I'm horrible at asking questions on here, so please bear with me. As a Protestant, I'm struggling with finding answers to two questions dealing with Matthew 24:15-20.
In Matthew 24:17-18 (NASB), we are told:
17 "Whoever is on the housetop must not go down to get the things out that are in his house. 18 Whoever is in the field must not turn back to get his cloak."
Lot's wife didn't take God's word literally and paid for it. I don't want to make the same mistake. Obviously we have to go somewhere because verse 20 says:
"pray your flight not be on the sabbath."
According to the Protestant perspective, where are we supposed to go?
Also, why do we have to pray our flight isn't on the sabbath?
Apparently, "flight" during the sabbath would cause us to work, which according to John is not good. Are we still supposed to keep the sabbath holy and not work? Is the sabbath still holy? I thought we didn't "have" to observe the sabbath anymore.
