Jesus had previously said not one stone would be left upon another. They wanted to know when it would happen and what would be the sign of his coming and of the end of the age. As he was sitting there, Jesus no doubt remembered the city's history and once again thought to himself, "O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together... but you were not willing." Matthew 23:37 NIV Peter, James, John and Andrew desired to know when the temple would be destroyed and to know about his coming. The answer is probably confusing to many people because Jesus answered them in a similar way in which an artist might sketch a drawing. He gave a simple design outlining essential facts and occurrences that were to take place in their immediate future and at the end of the church age. In much the same way an artist might place a window within a room that goes beyond the initial drawing to reveal rolling fields and distant mountains, Jesus blended his eminent death and resurrection with the destruction of the temple and city of Jerusalem while in the background using apocalyptic language that reveals the final days before his second coming and the end of this age. In answer to their questions, Jesus gave signs of his second coming and foretold that some would come proclaiming he is the Christ (Messiah) while deceiving innocent people and leading them into sins that would damn their souls to hell. Jude says these teachers pollute their bodies, reject God's authority, and slander celestial beings. They are clouds without water and trees without fruit. And for the love of money they make merchandise of you. In the last days there would be wars and rumors of wars (Matthew 24:6). Ethnic groups rising against each other; people against governments and governments against each other will mark the time of the end (Luke'21:10). There would be famines, pestilences and earthquakes throughout various parts of the earth (Luke 21:11). He said in this time of distress many would turn away from the faith and betray one another (Matthew 24:10). And love for God would grow cold (Matthew 24:12). These are the days in which we live - the beginning of birth pains (Matthew 24:8). The King James says it's the beginning of sorrows. The NIV translates the Greek word "odin" as birth pains. For the word means a pain as in childbirth or pain of travail. It is a time of great sorrow and of horror. This age is coming to a close and a new age is .being birthed. Jesus Christ is coming back from heaven to set up his millennial kingdom (Revelation 20:1-6). As Jesus wept over Jerusalem and longed for them, we must also carry his burden. There are people all around us who will spend eternity without God lost forever in a devil's hell. Will you tell them Jesus longs to give them life?
