The Disciples Asked The Lord Three Questions
And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and His disciples came to [Him] for to show Him the buildings of the temple. And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? Verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. And as He sat upon the Mount of Olives, the disciples came unto Him privately, saying,
Tell us, when shall these things be? And what [shall be] the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? Matthew 24:1-3.
Tell us, when shall these things be? And what [shall be] the sign when all these things shall be fulfilled? Mark 13:4
And they asked him, saying, Master, but when shall these things be? And what sign [will there be] when these things shall come to pass? Luke 21:7

The Answer To The 2nd And 3rd Questions
For the Gentile nations, the heathen and pagan people, will rise and move up against and among one another bordering nations and kingdom against kingdom, one place of reign touching another; and there shall be famines, a lack of food, causing destitution for people being without food; and pestilences, a plague of diseases; and a shaking of the ground, causing it to tremble, shake sideways, back and forth, for the earth will be shaking in divers or various places, down through its’ distribution with intensity, in many locations. But all these are the beginning, of the grief, the first of the troubles, sorrows, of the birth pains and travail. Matthew 24:7-8.
For then shall be great and mighty, exceedingly sore affliction, anguish, oppression, burden and tribulation, such as not occurred since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. Matthew 24:21.
For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earth-shocks, earthquakes in divers or different and various places; and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows, like the early pains of childbirth. Mark 13:8.
For in those days shall be affliction, anguish, burden, tribulation and trouble, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created, unto this time and never shall be. Mark 13:19.
Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise up against and be moved against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: And great earth-shocks, great earthquakes and great shaking shall be in every divers and different places; and famines, people without food; and an outburst of disease and pestilences; and there will be great signs of terror and fearful sights from heaven. Luke 21:10-11.
The Sea and the Waves Roaring: A composite of the seventeen different English translations and the definitions from a Lexicon: There will be signs in the sun and moon and stars; and upon the land of the earth, anxiety, anguish, doubt, fear and distress among the nations in a state of perplexity with bewilderment and confusion, as of a mental loss of having no way out, by reason and because of the billowing and vibration of the loud roaring confusion caused by the noise of the sea waves. Men’s hearts failing them and fainting from fear in apprehension, expectation and waiting for the things which are about to come upon the whole habitable earth, for the forces and powers of the heavens shall be moved and shaken. Luke 21:25-26.
I saw in the night visions and behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven and came up, even unto the Ancient of days and they brought Him near before Him. And there was given Him dominion and glory and a kingdom that all people, nations and languages, should serve Him: His dominion is an everlasting and age-enduring dominion, which shall not pass away and His kingdom that which shall not be destroyed, nor brought to ruin. Daniel 7:13-14.
And immediately and straightway, after the pressure and anguish; the tribulationof those days, the light of the sun will be obscure and darkened; and the moon shall not give her brilliant light; and the stars shall fall from the sky of heaven and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken and stirred up; and then shall appear, the sign and token of the Son of man in the sky of heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of the sky of heaven with force and power; and abundant, great glory, dignity, praise and honor. And He shall send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet and they shall gather and collect in the same place, together His elect, chosen and selected ones, from the four winds, from one end and extreme of heaven to the other. Matthew 24:29-31.
But in those days, after that affliction, anguish, burden, trouble and tribulation, the light of the sun from the east shall be darkened and obscured; and the moon shall not give her brilliant light; and the stars of the extension of the sky of heaven shall be falling; and the powers that are in the sky of heaven shall be shaken, disturbed and stirred up. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with abundant, great power and glory. And then shall He send His angels and shall gather together and collect in the same place, His chosen and His elect from the four winds, from the extreme uttermost part of the earth, to the extreme uttermost part of heaven. Mark 13:24-27.
And Jesus said, I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power and coming in the clouds of the sky of heaven. Mark 14:62.
And there shall be signs, tokens and wonders in the light of the sun; and in the moon; and in the constellation of the stars; and upon the whole earth anguish, anxiety and distress of nations, with a state of perplexity and mental loss; standing in doubtful confusion as what to do, being in a bewilderment, having no way out; because of the loud roaring of the sea and the waves being in a roaring vibration; men’s hearts failing them for fear and having an apprehension, an expectation and an arrival; looking after those things which are coming on the land of the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be moved and shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and abundant, great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then raise, look up and lift up your heads; for on this account, your deliverance and full redemption approaches and is drawing near. Luke 21:25-28.
As The Days Of Noah & The Coming Of The Son Of Man
But even as, exactly like and just as the days of the patriarch Noah, after and in this manner and fashion, will be also and even the parousia; the coming near and aspect in the physical presence of the Son of Man. Even as, exactly like and just as, in the days that were before the inundation of the flood, they were eating and drinking; marrying and giving in marriage, until the day the patriarch Noah entered into the ark and knew not, until the inundation of the flood came and took them all away; so also, in this manner will be, the parousia; the coming near and aspect in the physical presence of the Son of Man. Matthew 24:37-39.
And just inasmuch, according to, even as it was in the days of the patriarch Noah, after that in this like manner, on this fashion, so shall it be, in the days of the Son of Man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives and were given in marriage, until the day that the patriarch Noah entered into the ark and the inundation of the flood came and fully destroyed them all. Likewise, similar and also, in that manner as it was in the day of the patriarch Lot, they did eat, they drank, they bought in the market place, they sold and bartered, they planted in the earth, they were house-builders. But, moreover, the same day that the patriarch Lot went out of Sodom, it rained a lightning fiery fire and a sulfurous brimstone, from the sky of heaven and destroyed, and caused them all to perish.Even like and even thus, in the same way and manner, shall it be, in the day when the Son of Man is disclosed and revealed. Luke 17:26-30.
Watch Ye Therefore
Watch and be vigilant to be awake, therefore and accordingly, for you do not know what instant the hour of time your Lord, the One in Supreme Authority, the Master will appear and come. But know this, that if the head of the family, the master of the house, had known what manner of being on watch or guard, the thief and stealer would come, he would have kept a vigilant watchfulness and would not have permitted or left home, and suffered his house and home to be broken into and burglarized. Therefore, you be ready, prepared and adjusted, for in an hour of time as you seem not to think and to give account, the Son of Man appears and comes. Matthew 24:42-44.
Watch, keep awake and be vigilant, therefore and accordingly, for you do not know when the Master, the One in Supreme Authority, the Controller and Lord of the house and home comes, at evening, the close of the day, or at midnight, or at the third watch of the cock crowing, or in the dawn, the day-break of the morning. Lest coming suddenly and unexpectedly, He finds you sleeping and lying down to rest. And what I say and put forth to you, I say unto all, even and the whole; to keep awake, be vigilant and watchful. Mark 13:35-37.
And take heed, beware and have regard to yourselves, lest or perhaps at any time, your heart, your thoughts and feelings be overcharged, pressed and weighted down with a seizure of pain of a headache, from a drunkenness of intoxication and from the care of this present life existence; so that day come upon you unexpected, suddenly and unawares. For in the manner, as a fastened trap and a tricked snare, shall it come on all them that dwell, reside and remain on the surface of the land, of the whole earth. Watch, keep awake, therefore and accordingly, pray, petition and make a request and beg as for oneself, always at every occasion and time, that you may be accounted, deemed entirely deserving and worthy, to escape and flee from all these things, that shall come to pass and to stand in front of, before, in the sight and presence of the Son of Man. Luke 21:34-36.
The Day Of The Lord
And I will bring forth a rare event, so extraordinary, it will inspire wonder; for it will be in the elevated area of the sky, in heaven above and a token and sign of these events will be throughout the entire regions under the surface of the soil, of all the land of the world, in the earth beneath; for it will be a visible wonder of flowing substance like blood and of flashes of lightning and fire, with a mist of vapor of smoke: The rising of the sun in the east and the rays of light, will become as an outlining shadow and shall be turned into darkness, and the bright shining moon, will appear to be a blood red color; before that great, mighty and notable, visible day of the Lord, the One in Supreme Authority will come: Acts 2:19-20.
The Lord Will Come As A Thief In The Night
But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly, full well and thoroughly, that the day of the Lord, the One in Supreme Authority will come as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace, quietness and safety with security; then suddenly and unexpectedly, destruction will come upon them, as travail and birth pains upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ; Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him. Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do. 1 Thessalonians 5:1-11.
This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance: That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Savior: Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts; And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. But the day of the Lord, the One in Supreme Authority, will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise and roar, and the elements shall be destroyed and melt with fervent heat; the earth also, and the labors, and works that are therein shall be burned up and completely consumed. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved and destroyed, What manner of persons ought ye to be living in holy and sacred behavior and godliness; awaiting, anticipating and looking for with speed, earnestly awaiting and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, destroyed, and the elements shall burn and melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. II Peter 3:1-13.
