In Luke Chapter 21, Jesus warns us to discern about the signs of the end. First He foretells the disciples that the Temple will be destroyed. So surprised to hear this, the disciples asked him when it would happen. Jesus tells of events that will happen before the end.
Luke 21: 8 He (Jesus) answered, “See that you not be deceived, for many will come in My Name, saying, ‘I am he,’ and ‘ The time has come.’ Do not follow them! When you hear of wars and insurrections, do not be terrified; for such things must happen first, but it will not immediately be the end.” Then He said to them,”Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be powerful earthquakes, famines, and plagues from place to place; and awesome sights and mighty signs will come from the sky. Before all this happens, however, they will seize and persecute you, they will hand you over to the synagogues and to prisons, and they will have you led before kings and governors because of My Name. It will lead to your giving testimony. Remember, you are not to prepare your defense beforehand, for I Myself shall give you a wisdom in speaking that all your adversaries will be powerless to resist or refute. You will be handed over by parents, brothers, relatives, and friends, and they will put some of you to death. You will be hated by all because of My Name, but not a hair on your head will be destroyed. By your perseverance you will secure your lives.
