Hi-lite: Mark 13:1
And as he went out of the temple, one of his disciples saith unto him,
Master, see what manner of stones and what buildings are here!
2 And Jesus answering said unto him, Seest thou these great buildings? there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives over against (opposite) the temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew asked him privately,
4 Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign when all these things shall be fulfilled?
"There shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down." is a spiritual statement that has nothing to do with the physical temple building. To learn why/how/when open this link and read the Olivet Prophecy
You will also learn about the 7 seals of revelation chapter 6 which are all listed here in Mark 13.
Mark 13:5 And
Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you:
1st seal 6 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
2nd seal7 And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet.
3rd seal8 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: 4th sealand there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.
9 But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them.
10 And the gospel must first be published among all nations.
11 But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost.
12 Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son; and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death.
5th seal13 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
6th seal14 But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:
15 And let him that is on the housetop not go down into the house, neither enter therein, to take any thing out of his house:
16 And let him that is in the field not turn back again for to take up his garment.
7th seal17 But woe to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
18 And pray ye that your flight be not in the winter.
To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits;
to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
