While some people were speaking about how the temple was adorned with costly stones and votive offerings, He said, “All that you see here – the days will come when there will not be left a stone upon another stone that will not be thrown down.”

Then they asked Him, “Teacher, when will this happen? And what sign will there be when all these things are about to happen? He 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.” The 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.” (Luke 21:5-11 NAB)

Prayer: Heavenly Father, we trust in Your plan that Jesus will come again in glory. Help us to remain faithful no matter what happens to us and around us. Pour out Your grace upon the world so that all people will be ready to welcome Jesus when He returns. Come, Lord Jesus.
