Chapter XXIV

Chapter XXIV. Prediction about the end times. As Jesus left the temple, went away, his disciples came to him the buildings of the temple. But he said to them: "Do you see all these things? Truly, I say: do not be left here one stone upon another that will be thrown down". Then while he was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him and, in private and asked, "Explain, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of thy coming and of the end of the world?". Jesus answered them: "Take heed that no one seduce.Because many will come in my name saying, I am Christ and shall deceive many. You will hear talk of wars and rumors of wars. See that ye be not troubled, because everything must this to happen, but not yet the end. a nation will rise up, in fact, against nation, and kingdom against kingdom and there shall be pestilences, famines and earthquakes in various places. but all these things will not be that the principle of pains. Then we will put to the torture, and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations because of my name. Then many will fall away and will betray one another, and shall hate one another. many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. and, about the proliferation of lawlessness, many will grow cold charity. But those who have been able to persevere to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached throughout the world, to be witness to all nations. And then shall the end come".





The destruction of Jerusalem and the return of Christ. "Therefore when you see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, the holy place-the reader understand - then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, and who will be on the roof not come down to take anything of his house; and anyone in the field not return back to take the mantle. Woe to pregnant women and nursing mothers in those days. Pray that your flight should not be in winter or on a Saturday, because then there will be so great tribulation, which there was not since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will be. And except those days should be shortened, no flesh be saved soul: but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened. Then if anyone says to you: Here , here is Christ! or: is there! not believe it because it will arise false Christs and false prophets, which will make the show great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect if that were possible. Here, I have told you . If then you say: Behold, it is in the desert, go not forth: behold, it is inside the house, do not believe it: because as the lightning comes from the east and shows up to the west, so also will the coming of son of man.Wherever there is a corpse, there the vultures will gather"." Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun shall be darkened, the moon will not give its light, the stars fall from heaven, and the powers of heaven shall be shaken: . Then will appear in heaven the sign of the Son of man, and all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with trumpet by the sound powerful, they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven"." Learn the similitude of the fig tree removed. When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, ye know that summer is near. So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that the Son of man is near, he is coming. Verily I say unto you this generation shall not pass till all this happens. Heaven and earth will pass away but my words shall not pass away".




Christian Vigilance. "But of that day and hour no one knows anything, not even the angels of heaven, but only the Father. And what happened to the days of Noah, will be also the coming of the Son of man. For as in days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and gave husbands for his daughters, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and they knew nothing until the flood came and swept them all, so will the coming of son of man. Then two men will find themselves in the field, one is taken and the other left. Of two women will be grinding at the mill, one is taken and one left. Watch ye therefore, because you do not know what day your Lord is coming. Think well to this: if the householder had known in what watch the thief must come, certainly would have watched and would not leave his home strip. So you also must be prepared, because the Son of man will not think that in that hour. What then is the faithful and wise servant, whom his master appointed over the people of his home, to give them meat in due season? Blessed is that servant whom his master on his return , will do in this way. Verily i say unto you, that will set him over all his goods. But if the servant is evil and thinks to himself: 'My master is delayed in returning, and begins to beat his fellow servants, eating and drinking with the drunken, the lord of that servant will come on a day when he least expects it, and at an hour you do not know, it will separate (by others) and the portion with the hypocrites, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
