Signs of the End of the Age
He was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him
privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things happen? What will
be the sign of Your coming and of the end of the age?”
aHaiahua answered them, “Be careful that no
one leads you astray!
For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am
the Messiah,’ and will lead many astray.
You will hear of wars and
rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must happen but
it is not yet the end.
For nation will rise up against nation, and
kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines and earthquakes in
But all these things are only the beginning of
Then they will hand you over to persecution and will
kill you. You will be hated by all the nations because of My name.
And then many will fall away and will betray one another and hate one
Many false prophets will arise and lead many astray.
Because lawlessness will multiply, the love of many will grow cold.
But the one who endures to the end will be saved.
This Good News
of the kingdom shall be proclaimed in the whole world as a testimony
to all the nations, and then the end will come. Matthew
24:3 - 14
Abomination of Desolation
“So when you see ‘the
abomination of desolation,’ which was spoken of through Daniel the
prophet, standing in the Holy Place (let the reader understand),
then those in Judea must flee to the mountains.
The one on the
roof must not go down to take what is in his house,
and the one in
the field must not turn back to get his coat.
Woe to those who are
pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days!
that your escape will not happen in winter, or on Shabbat.
then there will be great trouble, such as has not happened since the
beginning of the world until now, nor ever will.
And unless those
days were cut short, no one would be delivered. But for the sake of
the chosen, those days will be cut short.
“Then if anyone says to
you, ‘Look, here’s the Messiah,’ or ‘There He is,’ do not believe it.
For false messiahs and false prophets will rise up and show great
signs and wonders so as to lead astray, if possible, even the chosen.
See, I have told you beforehand.
“So if they say to you, ‘Look, He
is in the wilderness,’ do not go out. Or, ‘Look, He is in the inner
rooms,’ do not believe it.
lightning comes from the east and flashes as far as the west, so also
will be the coming of the Son of Man.
For wherever the carcass is,
there the vultures will gather. Matthew
24:15 - 28
Coming of the Son of Man
“But immediately after the trouble
of those days, ‘the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give
its light and the stars will fall from heaven and the powers of the
heavens will be shaken.’
the sign of the Son of Man will appear in
heaven, and then all the tribes of the land will mourn, and they will
see ‘the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven’ with power and
He will send out His angels with a great shofar, and
they will gather together His chosen from the four winds, from one end
of heaven to the other.”
The Lesson of
the Fig Tree
“Now learn the parable from the fig tree.
When its branch becomes tender and puts forth leaves, you know that
summer is near.
So also, when you see all these things, know that
it is near, at the door.
Amen, I tell you, this generation will
not pass away until all these things happen.
Heaven and earth will
pass away, but My words will never pass away.
But of that day and
hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven nor the Son, except
the Father alone.
“For just as the days of Noah were, so will be
the coming of the Son of Man.
For in those days before the flood,
they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until
the day Noah entered the ark.
And they did not understand until
the flood came and swept them all away. So shall it be at the coming
of the Son of Man.
Then two men will be in the field, one taken
and one left.
Two women will be grinding at the mill, one taken
and one left.
Therefore stay alert; for you do not know what day
your Lord is coming.
But know this, that if the master of the
house had known what time the thief was coming, he would have kept
watch and not let his house be broken into.
So you also must be
ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.”
then is the faithful and wise servant, whom the master put in charge
of his household to give them food at the proper time?
that servant whose master finds him so doing when he comes.
I tell you, his master will put him in charge of all his possessions.
But if that wicked servant says in his heart, ‘My master is taking a
and he begins to beat his fellow servants, and he eats
and drinks with drunkards,
the master of that servant will come on
a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he does not know.
And he will cut him in two and assign his place with the hypocrites,
where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” Matthew 24:29 -
