We are talking about this generation which shall not pass away until all these things are fulfilled. You will note the words of Jesus in the book of Matthew, after He has called this to the attention of His disciples, events that have become common place news in your time. In which He had discussed the strange forces which are at work for this struggle for the earth. He talks about the wars and the rumours of wars and the powers of evil forces seeking to take over the world. Discusses clearly the famines and the pestilence, the earthquakes, and the floods, the conditions of upset weather and unbalanced factors of the Universe.
He tells His disciples about false religious leaders and false ‘Christs’ who will arise, which will attempt to lead the nations of God’s Kingdom into error. And He tells them about these things which will climax the world events. The gathering hoards which you see on the horizon, and the backdrops which you see to the prophets. And in this situation, He talks about this condition which arises in which we see even ancient Jerusalem filled with a strange people. And these people, the scripture tells us who occupy it, are the Abomination of the Desolator, standing in the Holy Place.
