Matthew 24:34-35. “Verily I say unto you,This generation shall not pass till all these things be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My words shall not pass away.”
Jesus said “This generation. . . .” He was not speaking of the generation among whom He lived and walked. He was speaking of the last generation living on earth at the time all these thing will be fulfilled. Of course there were disciples who believed fervently that Jesus would return in their lifetimes, but it didn’t happen that way. Every generation since has had believers who long and hope for the return of Jesus Christ. We are no different. What we have to understand is that all these things will come to pass within the lifespan of one generation, the last generation of people to live on the earth before everything changes forever.
I love God’s promise in verse 35. Heaven and earth as we know it will pass away forever, but His Word shall stand. No one, nothing, not Hell itself, can alter what God has spoken. Satan continues to attack, turning people against the Word of God, against Christianity, even here in our beloved country. He may succeed for a time, but the day is coming when even HIS knee will bow, and HIS tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord!
