What Is Jesus’ End-Time Timeline
When Will All This Happen
This is part 3 of Jesus’ End-Time Timeline as documented in Matthew 24. This article covers Jesus’ response to the disciples’ first question in Matthew 24:3 – “When Will All This Happen?”
When You See All These Things
- The Generation That Sees These Signs Begin, Will See ALL These Things Take Place
Mat 24:32 NLT – “Now learn a lesson from the fig tree. When its branches bud and its leaves begin to sprout, you know that summer is near.
Mat 24:33 NLT – In the same way, when you see all these things, you can know his return is very near, right at the door.
Mat 24:34 NLT – I tell you the truth, this generation will not pass from the scene until all these things take place.
Mat 24:35 NLT – Heaven and earth will disappear, but my words will never disappear.
No One Knows the Day or Hour
- No Man Knows
- No Angel Knows
- Even Jesus Does Not Know
- ONLY The Father Knows
Mat 24:36 NLT – “However, no one knows the day or hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son himself. Only the Father knows.
Like The Days Of Noah
- Banquets, Parties, Weddings
- Two Men Working – One Taken, The Other Left
- Two Women Grinding – One Taken, The Other Left
Mat 24:37 NLT – “When the Son of Man returns, it will be like it was in Noah’s day.
Mat 24:38 NLT – In those days before the flood, the people were enjoying banquets and parties and weddings right up to the time Noah entered his boat.
Mat 24:39 NLT – People didn’t realize what was going to happen until the flood came and swept them all away. That is the way it will be when the Son of Man comes.
Mat 24:40 NLT – “Two men will be working together in the field; one will be taken, the other left.
Mat 24:41 NLT – Two women will be grinding flour at the mill; one will be taken, the other left.
- Keep Watch
- Understand This
- Be Ready All The Time
Mat 24:42 NLT – “So you, too, must keep watch! For you don’t know what day your Lord is coming.
Luke 21:34-36 adds …
- Watch Out
- Don’t Let Day Catch You Unaware
- That Day Comes Upon The Whole Earth
- Keep Alert
- Pray To Be Strong Enough To Escape And To Stand Before The Son of Man
Luk 21:34 NLT – “Watch out! Don’t let your hearts be dulled by carousing and drunkenness, and by the worries of this life. Don’t let that day catch you unaware,
Luk 21:35 NLT – like a trap. For that day will come upon everyone living on the earth.
Luk 21:36 NLT – Keep alert at all times. And pray that you might be strong enough to escape these coming horrors and stand before the Son of Man.”
Mat 24:43 NLT – Understand this: If a homeowner knew exactly when a burglar was coming, he would keep watch and not permit his house to be broken into.
Mat 24:44 NLT – You also must be ready all the time, for the Son of Man will come when least expected.
Mat 24:45 NLT – “A faithful, sensible servant is one to whom the master can give the responsibility of managing his other household servants and feeding them.
Mat 24:46 NLT – If the master returns and finds that the servant has done a good job, there will be a reward.
Mat 24:47 NLT – I tell you the truth, the master will put that servant in charge of all he owns.
Mat 24:48 NLT – But what if the servant is evil and thinks, ‘My master won’t be back for a while,’
Mat 24:49 NLT – and he begins beating the other servants, partying, and getting drunk?
Mat 24:50 NLT – The master will return unannounced and unexpected,
Mat 24:51 NLT – and he will cut the servant to pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
This concludes the 3 part series of Jesus’ End-Time Timeline.
