27 Then they will see the Son of Man (A)coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28 Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because (B)your redemption draws near.”

The Parable of the Fig Tree(C)

29 (D)Then He spoke to them a parable: “Look at the fig tree, and all the trees. 30 When they are already budding, you see and know for yourselves that summer is now near. 31 So you also, when you see these things happening, know that the kingdom of God is near. 32 Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all things take place. 33 (E)Heaven and earth will pass away, but My (F)words will by no means pass away.

The Importance of Watching(G)

34 “But (H)take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with [a]carousing, drunkenness, and (I)cares of this life, and that Day come on you unexpectedly. 35 For (J)it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth. 36 (K)Watch therefore, and (L)pray always that you may [b]be counted (M)worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and (N)to stand before the Son of Man.”
