The Future


And <Jesus coming forth> from the temple was taking his departure, when his disciples came forward to point out to him the buildings of the temple. But he, answering, said unto them— Are ye not beholding all these things? Verily I say unto you— In no wise shall there be left here |stone upon stone, Which shall not be thrown down. And <as he was sitting upon the Mount of Olives> the disciples came unto him privately, saying—Tell us, when these things shall be,— And what the sign of thy presence, a and the conclusion of the age.

And, answering, Jesus said unto them— Be taking heed lest anyone deceive you; For many will come upon my name, saying— I am the Christ,— And will deceive many.  Moreover ye will be sure to be hearing of wars and rumours of wars: Mind! be not alarmed, for it must needs happen {Daniel 2:28},— But not yet is the end;

For there will arise— Nation against nation, And kingdom against kingdom {Isaiah 19:2},— And there will be famines and earthquakes in places. But allʹ these things are a beginning of birthpangs.

Then will they deliver you up into tribulation and will slay you,— And ye will be men hated by all the nations because of my name; And then will many be caused to stumble,  And one another will deliver up, And will hate one another; And many false prophets will arise, And deceive many; And <because of lawlessness being brought to the full> The love of the many will grow cold, But <he that hath endured throughout> The same shall be saved.

And this glad message of the kingdom will be proclaimed in all the inhabited earth, For a witness unto all the nations,— And then will have come the end.

(MATTHEW 24:1-14 – The Emphasized Bible)
