I Praise the Lord for the opportunity to share God’s word. If I did not share the Word, Someone else WILL. Paul told Timothy in 2 Timothy 2:15 to “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth”.
Why? Read Timothy 3:16-17
Now, continuing with the time of the gentiles ……….
In Verse 18, Jesus is still answering the question that his disciples ask him in Matthews 24:3. Here Jesus is telling the disciples about the END TIMES in regard to the Jews that are left during the tribulation.
Scriptures in support of this is:
2 Chronicles 16:9
9 For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. Herein thou hast done foolishly: therefore from henceforth thou shalt have wars.
7 The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.
4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
2 As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the Lord is round about his people from henceforth even for ever.
Let us continue with Luke 19:
19 In your patience possess ye your souls.
The word patience, or forbearing is the state of endurance under difficult circumstances. Also, persevering in the face of delay or provocation without acting on negative annoyance/anger. Or, demonstrating patience when under strain, especially when faced with longer-term difficulties. Patience is also a character trait of being steadfast.
Also see Revelation 3:10
Let us Continue with Luke 20:”
20 And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh.
21 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.
22 For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.
23 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.
24 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.
25 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;
26 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.
27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
29 And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees;
30 When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand.
31 So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand.
32 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.
33 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
34 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.
35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.
36 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.
Luke 21:8 Bring in Daniel 70th week, which brings the Jews back into the timeline.
