According to Mat 24:34 the generation that begins to see the signs that Jesus described to the disciples in Mat 24 will be the last generation.
Matt. 24:32 “Now learn the parable from the fig tree: when its branch has already become tender and puts forth its leaves, you know that summer is near; 33 so, you too, when you see all these things, recognize that He is near, right at the door. 34 “Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place.
People are becoming aware of increase in the number and the intensity of earthquakes or they are beginning to realize that the fig tree is beginning to bud in this respect.
Mat 24:7 “For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes.
We are beginning to notice that Christians are increasingly being persecuted throughout the world, which is the budding of the fig tree that will lead to the complete removal of the rights of Christians and result in imprisonment by those who do not adhere to such laws as will be passed, including the Hate Crime Laws, which will make it a crime to speak against homosexuality. As the rights of Christians are removed the unsaved in the churches will leave the churches or fall away to avoid being included with those that do not adhere to the antichristian laws. They will betray their Christian friends and turn them into the authorities for breaking the such laws as the Hate Crimes Laws.
Matt. 24:9 “Then they will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations because of My name. 10 “At that time many will fall away and will betray one another and hate one another. 11 “Many false prophets will arise and will mislead many. 12 “Because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold.
These are the kinds of things that Jesus meant when He explained that the generation that begins to see these taking place is the last generation. Personally, I do not remember hearing anyone from the time period when Israel was reformed claim that they could see the things I described above taking place. However, we can see these things beginning to take place.
