Luke 21:5-19
People were talking about how beautifully the Temple was adorned with expensive stones. Jesus says, “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.” He says this because when Jesus dies the entire Temple falls to the ground. Jesus then tells His disciples not to follow others who pretend they are a god. He tells the disciples they will be seized and persecuted for their beliefs. They will be handed over by their family members and everyone will be against them. Jesus then tells the
disciples to overcome the persecution because they will be rewarded in Heaven.
