Jack Van Impe is Now saying the "elect" in Matthew 24 ARE the Christians?

Back in July of 2012 I published an article concerning a news letter I received from Jack Van Impe. In his news letter he made the statement that the elect in Matthew 24 wasn't the Christians. Here is his actual words:

“Post-tribulationist (those who believe the Church of Jesus Christ will endure the terrible period of the Tribulation) like to use this verse-“Except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened” (Matthew 24:22)-saying this passage proves the Church will remain on earth because we are the “elect.” Nothing could be further from the truth. Many do not realize that God has two elect groups on earth. There is the Church (see Ephesians 1:4, 1 Peter 1:2), but that is not the group referred to in Matthew 24:22. How do I know this? Isaiah 42:1 speaks of the Jews as God’s elect. (Jack Van Impe).”

It seems after exactly a year has past Jack has changed his mind and is now saying the elect in Matthew 24 ARE the Christians. What do we do with that Jack?

The idea that the elect in Matthew 24 is not Christians is one of those things pre-trib people say to back up their belief and now Jack has gone a thrown a wrench in it!
