There were three simultaneous events that happened during the earthquake at Jesus’ death that are of major importance to the fulfillment of the prophecies concerning the destruction of the Temple and Jerusalem:
The veil of separation torn from top to bottom
The tombs opened and the dead raised to life
Jesus acknowledged as the Son of God....
And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the spirit. And the veil of the temple was torn in half from the top to the bottom” (Mk.15:37-38 KJV).
“And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit. At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook and the rocks split. The tombs broke open and the bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life” (Matt.27:50-52
Men of Galilee,” they said, “why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.”
Jesus return will signal a global earthquake....
Know this first of all, that in the last days mockers will come with their mocking, following after their own lusts, 4and saying, Where is the promise of His coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all continues just as it was from the beginning of creation.
The end-time, prophesied scoffers surface on every prophecy thread.
