students).came to him for to

I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that
shall not be thrown down.
the time this was spoken, no event was more improbable than this event
some 560 years before by Daniel:.Daniel
9:26. The temple was vast, rich, splendid. It was the pride of the
nation and the nation was at peace. Yet in the short space of forty years
all this was exactly accomplished. Jerusalem was taken by the Roman armies,
under the command of Titus,
70 A.D. The account
of the siege and destruction of the city is left us by Josephus,
an historian of undoubted veracity
and singular fidelity.
He was a Jewish priest. In the wars of which he gives an account, he fell
into the hands of the Romans and remained with them during the
siege and destruction of the city."
24:3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto
him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? And what shall
be the sign of your coming and of the end
of the world?.(*)
24:4 And Emmanuel answered and said unto them, Take heed.(be
alert to; note what people may be trying to get you into).that

shall deceive many.

and talking about His life's importance for you:.Luke
24:6,7 And you shall hear of wars and rumours of wars. See that you
be not troubled. For all these things must come to pass, but the end is
not yet. For nation.(multitudes
of peoples against each other).shall
rise against nation and kingdom.(organized
everywhere it seems will be at odds with others). And there
shall be famines and pestilences and Earthquakes, in divers.(different).places.
If what they
are telling you doesn't ring true in your heart, that is, you don't feel
correct about it, then avoid them:.Romans
24:8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
24:9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted.(perhaps
like the original Inquisition).and
shall kill you. And you shall be hated of all nations for my name's

the good minded ones who just couldn't seem to awaken to God and needed
some event in their lives so that they would?
24:10 And then shall many be offended.(that
is, be an offense
to others).and shall betray
one another and shall hate one another.
24:11 And many false prophets shall rise
and shall deceive
24:12 And because iniquity
shall abound, the love of many shall wax
negatives produced by lives of those living from the ego level can cause
one's love to submerge, where they have lost sensitivity to the things
of change. This happened to the ancients:.Jeremiah
44:16,17. How to remain stable, preventing one's love being submerged
and so that doesn't happen in your life:.John
15:4,5; Acts 20:32; Ephesians
3:17; Colossians 2:7; Hebrews
13:5; Jude 1:20. Why would anyone
be full of fear instead of full
of the true and only God.

for 'endure' is 'to remain under', to stay in alignment is the key).unto

24:16 Then let them which be in Judea flee to the mountain.
24:17,18 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any
thing out of his house.(these
housetops had relaxing garden type patios on them and stairs coming down
to the ground on a house's outside; it was a time of great urgency
back then just before the
fall of Jerusalem, so it is said to take the outer stairs and get out
as this would be quicker; the time would be that urgent).
Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.

nation of the Jews would, in a short time, have been entirely extirpated,
but, for the sake of the elect,
the days were shortened. So well fortified was Jerusalem and so well provided
to stand a siege, that the enemy without could not have prevailed,
had it not been for the factions
within. When Titus
was viewing the fortifications after the taking of the city, he could not

24:29 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.
24:30 And then shall appear the sign.(talking
here about the destruction of Jerusalem
in 70 A.D., the sign or evidence of His
coming was found in the fulfilment of these predictions).of
the Son of man in heaven.(Josephus'
writings on it). And then shall all the tribes of the
Earth mourn and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven
with power and great glory.
New Testament Notes: when Christ's light was darkened during the
Inquisition by taking the Bible from We
the People, hardly any
light came forth during the long night of the Middle
writings on it.
Commentaries: that is, the Jewish dreams of a 'heaven on Earth'
brought about by a Messiah
they looked for all their history, believing He would be returning to establish
them, shall perish and the sun and moon of its glory and happiness shall
be darkened and brought to nothing, the Sun being the religion of their
church, the moon being the government of their state and the stars, judges
and doctors of both; compare Isaiah
13:10 and Ezekiel 32:7,8,
which generally means to shut down any effectiveness a religion or even
a nation may have. But this is only one timeline. There are others and
they are better ones.

I say unto you, This
