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 24:32-35 NLT

32 “Now learn a lesson from the fig tree. When its branches bud and its leaves begin to sprout, you know that summer is near.
33 In the same way, when you see all these things, you can know his return is very near, right at the door.
34 I tell you the truth, this generation will not pass from the scene until all these things take place.
35 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

36 “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 24:37-41 NLT

37 “When the Son of Man returns, it will be like it was in Noah’s day.
38 In those days before the flood, the people were enjoying banquets and parties and weddings right up to the time Noah entered his boat.
39 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.
40”Two men will be working together in the field; one will be taken, the other left.
41 Two women will be grinding flour at the mill; one will be taken, the other left.

Multiple Warnings

  • Keep Watch
  • Understand This
  • Be Ready All The Time
Mat 24:42 NLT

42 “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 21:34-36 NLT

34 “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,
35 like a trap. For that day will come upon everyone living on the earth.
36 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 24:43-51 NLT

43 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.
44 You also must be ready all the time, for the Son of Man will come when least expected.
45 “A faithful, sensible servant is one to whom the master can give the responsibility of managing his other household servants and feeding them.
46 If the master returns and finds that the servant has done a good job, there will be a reward.
47 I tell you the truth, the master will put that servant in charge of all he owns.
48 But what if the servant is evil and thinks, ‘My master won’t be back for a while,’
49 and he begins beating the other servants, partying, and getting drunk?
50 The master will return unannounced and unexpected,
51 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.
