Signs of Destruction and the End Times


While Jesus sat on the Mount of Olives, his disciples asked him in private as to the time of the destruction of Jerusalem and its Temple, the sign on his second coming, and the end of the age (Mt 24:3). The signs he cited were the appearance of false Messiahs (Mt 24:4-5) and false prophets (Mt 24:11), wars between nations and kingdoms (Mt 24:6-7), persecution of the disciples (Mt 24:9-10), increase in evildoing, decrease of love (Mt 24:12), and the preaching of the gospel to all nations. Then the end of the world would happen (Mt 24:14). Jesus instructed what one must do during the great tribulation (Mt 24:15-28). He also predicted the sign at the coming of the Son of Man in the glorious cloud. “Immediately after the tribulation of those days, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken” (Mt 24:29). “He will send out his angels with a trumpet blast, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other” (Mt 24:31).
