Bible: Matthew 24:21-29

24:21 For then there will be great suffering 1  unlike anything that has happened 2  from the beginning of the world until now, or ever will happen. 24:22 And if those days had not been cut short, no one would be saved. But for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short. 24:23 Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ 3  or ‘There he is!’ do not believe him. 24:24 For false messiahs 4  and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. 24:25 Remember, 5  I have told you ahead of time. 24:26 So then, if someone 6  says to you, ‘Look, he is in the wilderness,’ 7  do not go out, or ‘Look, he is in the inner rooms,’ do not believe him. 24:27 For just like the lightning 8  comes from the east and flashes to the west, so the coming of the Son of Man will be. 24:28 Wherever the corpse is, there the vultures 9  will gather. 10 

The Arrival of the Son of Man

24:29Immediately 11  after the suffering 12  of those days, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of heaven will be shaken. 13
