Don't let anyone fool you
The destruction of the Temple.
"Teacher, look at the great stones! Look at the great buildings!"
Jesus said to him, "Do you see all these great buildings? Everything you see here will be destroyed, No stone will stay on top of another, it will be completely destroyed!".
When Jesus was sitting on Olive Mountain across from the temple, Peter, James,John and Andrew asked him these questions, "Tell us, when will these things happen? How will we know when it is the time for these things to happen?.
Jesus began to answer them, "Be careful: Don't let anyone fool you, Many people will come to you using my name. They will say, 'I am the one!' and they will fool many people, you will hear about wars and wars which are about to happen, don't become upset, these things must happen, but the end will come later, one country will fight against another country, Kings will fight against other kings, there won't be enough food to eat, everywhere there will be earthquakes, these things are only the beginning of the pain.
The Last Days
Watch out for yourselves! they will hand you over to the local courts, they will beat you in their synagogues, men will take you to be judged before governors and kings, because you are associated with me.
You will tell them the truth, the Good News must first be preached to all the people in the world.
When they turn against you and arrest you, don't worry about what you will say, say whatever is given to you at that time, you are not doing the talking; it is the Holy Spirit.
Pray that the time when you run away will not be during winter, during those days, there will be great suffering, never has there been such suffering since the beginning of the world when God created it until the present time, and, there will never be such suffering in the future.
If that period of time lasted any longer, no one would be left alive, but those times will be cut short because of the people God has chosen, at that time, if anyone says to you,'Look, here is the Messiah!' or "there he is!" don't believe him, false messiahs and false prophets will appear, they will perform proofs and miracles to fool people, even God's chosen people, if that were possible.
"Be careful! I am telling you everything ahead of time."
Christ Is Coming Again.
"After the trouble of those times,"The sun will become dark, the light of the moon will not be seen.
The stars will fall from the sky.
The powers in the universe will be moved. Isaiah 13:10, 34:4.
Then they will see me coming in the clouds with much power and glory.
Then I will send my angels out.
They will gather together my chosen people from every place and time."
