Prophecies Of Jesus
Matthew - Chapter 24
Concerning The Signs Of The End
And Jesus went out, and departed from the
temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the
temple. And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you,
There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
Note - The prophecy of Jesus above, concerning the destruction of the Jewish Temple, actually occurred in about 70 A.D., when the Romans literally leveled the temple to the ground, leaving no stone unturned. This prophecy was not in response to any question put to Jesus, but rather it was a simple comment he made while he was viewing the temple which was still standing in his time. However, the balance of the prophecies shown below, were in response to a specific question asked by the disciples concerning the (end of the world) and the (return of Jesus Christ), and should not be confused with the prophetic vision of Jesus above. This same logic can also be applied to the Gospel of Mark and Luke.
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 thy coming), and of the (end of the world)? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
024:004 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
024:005 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
024:006 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
024:007 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
024:008 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
024:009 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.
024:010 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
024:011 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
024:012 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
024:013 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
024:014 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
024:015 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)
024:016 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:
024:017 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:
024:018 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.
024:019 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
024:020 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:
024:021 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
024:022 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
024:023 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.
024:024 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
024:025 Behold, I have told you before.
024:026 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.
024:027 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
024:028 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
024:029 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:
024:030 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: 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.
024:031 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
024:032 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:
024:033 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
024:034 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
024:035 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
024:036 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
024:037 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
024:038 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark,
024:039 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
024:040 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
024:041 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
024:042 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
024:043 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
024:044 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
024:045 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
024:046 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
024:047 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.
024:048 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;
024:049 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;
024:050 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
024:051 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Matthew 24: 3-51
Mark - Chapter 13
Concerning The Signs Of The End
013:001 And as he went out of the temple, one of
his disciples saith unto him, Master, see what manner of stones and what buildings are
013:002 And Jesus answering said unto him, Seest thou these great buildings? there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
013:003 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives over against the temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew asked him privately,
013:004 Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign when all these things shall be fulfilled?
013:005 And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you:
013:006 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
013:007 And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet.
013:008 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.
013:009 But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them.
013:010 And the gospel must first be published among all nations.
013:011 But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost.
013:012 Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son; and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death.
013:013 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
013:014 But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:
013:015 And let him that is on the housetop not go down into the house, neither enter therein, to take any thing out of his house:
013:016 And let him that is in the field not turn back again for to take up his garment.
013:017 But woe to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
013:018 And pray ye that your flight be not in the winter.
013:019 For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be.
013:020 And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days.
013:021 And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ; or, lo, he is there; believe him not:
013:022 For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.
013:023 But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.
013:024 But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light,
013:025 And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken.
013:026 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.
013:027 And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.
013:028 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When her branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is near:
013:029 So ye in like manner, when ye shall see these things come to pass, know that it is nigh, even at the doors.
013:030 Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done.
013:031 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
013:032 But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.
013:033 Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.
013:034 For the Son of Man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch.
013:035 Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning:
013:036 Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping.
013:037 And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.
Luke - Chapter 21
Concerning The Signs Of The End
021:005 And as some spake of the temple, how it was
adorned with goodly stones and gifts, he said,
021:006 As for these things which ye behold, the days will come, in the which there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
021:007 And they asked him, saying, Master, but when shall these things be? and what sign will there be when these things shall come to pass?
021:008 And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them.
021:009 But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by.
021:010 Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:
021:011 And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.
021:012 But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name's sake.
021:013 And it shall turn to you for a testimony.
021:014 Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what ye shall answer:
021:015 For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.
021:016 And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death.
021:017 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake.
021:018 But there shall not an hair of your head perish.
021:019 In your patience possess ye your souls.
021:020 And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh.
021:021 Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto.
021:022 For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.
021:023 But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people.
021:024 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.
021:025 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
021:026 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
021:027 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
021:028 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
021:029 And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees;
021:030 When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand.
021:031 So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand.
021:032 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.
021:033 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
021:034 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.
021:035 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.
021:036 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
021:037 And in the day time he was teaching in the temple; and at night he went out, and abode in the mount that is called the mount of Olives.
021:038 And all the people came early in the morning to him in the temple, for to hear him.
