Message of the Day: The Lord’s Words Are More Certain Than The Existence Of The Universe.

Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.” (Matthew 24:35, NKJV)

Matthew chapters 24 and 25 (told also in Mark 13 and Luke 21), were about the destruction of Jerusalem, His coming, and the end of the world. Some of His words seem so mixed up that it is difficult to know to which event they refer. Perhaps it was intentional.
It seems plain that Jesus had in mind two distinct events, separated by an interval of time, indicated by “these” in 24:34 and “that day” in 24:36. Some would explain “this generation” (24:34) to mean “this nation,” that is, the Jewish race shall not pass away until the Lord comes. The more common view is that He meant that Jerusalem would be destroyed within the lifetime of those then living.

Just as the first leaves on a fig tree indicate that summer is coming, so when the disciples see the false messiahs, the persecution and the approach of the Roman armies, they will know that the destruction of Jerusalem and the Jewish nation is upon them. People of Jesus’ day would see the fulfillment of these things in their own lifetime.

We can trust in the Lord’s words, they are moe certain than the existence of the universe.
