UTTER DESTRUCTION

 
"It will all be torn down." —Luke 21:6
 

Jesus accurately prophesied that the Temple, the great wonder of the world and the center of Judaism, would be torn down. In fact, almost everything will be destroyed. Every dynasty, empire, government, and nation will fold. "The world as we know it is passing away" (1 Cor 7:31). Even "the heavens will vanish with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire" (2 Pt 3:10). "Shaken, created things will pass away" (Heb 12:27).

"Since everything is to be destroyed in this way, what sort of men must you not be! How holy in your conduct and devotion, looking for the coming of the day of God and trying to hasten it!" (2 Pt 3:11-12) "So, beloved, while waiting for this, make every effort to be found without stain or defilement, and at peace in His sight" (2 Pt 3:14).

"Wherefore, we who are receiving the unshakable kingdom should hold fast to God's grace" (Heb 12:28). Jesus said: "The heavens and the earth will pass away, but My words will not pass" (Lk 21:33).

 
Prayer: Father, may I "not be working for perishable food but for food that remains unto life eternal" (Jn 6:27).
Promise: "The One sitting on the cloud wielded His sickle over all the earth and reaped the earth's harvest." —Rv 14:16
Praise: St. Clement, the fourth pope, heard the preaching of the first apostles of Christ, and was martyred for following Jesus to the end.
