Matthew 24
21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.

Joel 3:2 I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.

Zecharia 14:4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.

There are many, many more such prophetic passages which have yet to be fulfilled.

When? In the words of Jesus Himself in Matthew 24:36 ...

“But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.”

Attempts to predict these things are not only futile, but reject the authority of God Himself who made it clear through His Son that nobody would know.

You’re right that Jesus said “no one knows the day or the hour,” but he DID say that his coming would be in his generation, did he not (Mt. 24.29,34)?

How do you read “generation”?

Thanks for reading and considering
