Matthew 24:28-35, NLT

28Just as the gathering of vultures shows there is a carcass nearby, so these signs indicate that the end is near.*24:28 Greek Wherever the carcass is, the vultures gather.

29“Immediately after the anguish of those days,

the sun will be darkened,

the moon will give no light,

the stars will fall from the sky,

and the powers in the heavens will be shaken.*24:29 See Isa 13:10; 34:4; Joel 2:10.

30And then at last, the sign that the Son of Man is coming will appear in the heavens, and there will be deep mourning among all the peoples of the earth. And they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.*24:30 See Dan 7:13. 31And he will send out his angels with the mighty blast of a trumpet, and they will gather his chosen ones from all over the world*24:31 Greek from the four winds.—from the farthest ends of the earth and heaven.

32“Now learn a lesson from the fig tree. When its branches bud and its leaves begin to sprout, you know that summer is near. 33In the same way, when you see all these things, you can know his return is very near, right at the door. 34I tell you the truth, this generation*24:34 Or this age, or this nation. will not pass from the scene until all these things take place. 35Heaven and earth will disappear, but my words will never disappear.
