The Great Tribulation(A)

15 (B)“Therefore when you see the (C)‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (D)(whoever reads, let him understand), 16 “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. 17 Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take anything out of his house. 18 And let him who is in the field not go back to get his clothes. 19 But (E)woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! 20 And pray that your flight may not be in winter or on the Sabbath. 21 For (F)then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22 And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; (G)but for the [a]elect’s sake those days will be shortened.

23 (H)“Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There!’ do not believe it. 24 For (I)false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, (J)if possible, even the elect. 25 See, I have told you beforehand.

26 “Therefore if they say to you, ‘Look, He is in the desert!’ do not go out; or ‘Look, He is in the inner rooms!’ do not believe it. 27 (K)For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.

The Great Tribulation(A)

14 (B)“So when you see the (C)‘abomination of desolation,’ [a]spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not” (let the reader understand), “then (D)let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. 15 Let him who is on the housetop not go down into the house, nor enter to take anything out of his house. 16 And let him who is in the field not go back to get his clothes. 17 (E)But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! 18 And pray that your flight may not be in winter. 19 (F)For in those days there will be tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the creation which God created until this time, nor ever shall be. 20 And unless the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake, whom He chose, He shortened the days.

21 (G)“Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or, ‘Look, He is there!’ do not believe it. 22 For false christs and false prophets will rise and show signs and (H)wonders to deceive, if possible, even the [b]elect. 23 But (I)take heed; see, I have told you all things beforehand.

The Coming of the Son of Man(J)

24 (K)“But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; 25 the stars of heaven will fall, and the powers in the heavens will be (L)shaken. 26 (M)Then they will see the Son of Man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.

The Coming of the Son of Man(A)

25 (B)“And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; 26 men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, (C)for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 27 Then they will see the Son of Man (D)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 (E)your redemption draws near.”

The Parable of the Fig Tree(F)

29 (G)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 (H)Heaven and earth will pass away, but My (I)words will by no means pass away.

The Importance of Watching(J)

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