Don't Fear

25"Amazing things will happen with the sun, moon, and stars. The people on earth
will feel trapped. The oceans will be upset, and the people will not know why.
26People will become afraid. They will be very worried about what will happen to
the world. Everything in the sky will be changed. 27Then people will see the Son
of Man* coming on a cloud with power and great glory. 28When these things begin
to happen, don't fear. Look up and be happy! Don't worry. Be happy, because you
know that the time when God will free you is near!"

My Words Will Live Forever

29Then Jesus told this story: "Look at all the trees. The fig tree is a good example.
30When it becomes green (grows buds), you know that summer is near. 31It is the
same with these things I told you would happen. When you see all these things happening,
then you will know that God's kingdom is coming very soon. 32"I tell you the truth.
All these things will happen while the people of this time are still living! 33The
whole world, earth and sky, will be destroyed; but the words I have said will never
be destroyed!

Be Ready All the Time

34"Be careful! Don't spend your time drinking and getting drunk. Or don't be too
busy with worldly things. If you do that, you will not be able to think right.
And then the end might come when you are not ready. 35It will come like a surprise
to all people on earth. 36So be ready all the time. Pray that you will be strong
enough to continue safely through all these things that will happen. And pray that
you will be able to stand before the Son of Man.* " 37During the day, Jesus taught
the people in the temple* area. At night he went out of the city and stayed all
night on the Mount of Olives.* 38Every morning all the people got up early to go
listen to Jesus at the temple.
