The Olivet Discourse as related in (Matt. 24-25) also found in (Luke 21: 5-36; Mk. 13), spoken by Jesus to His disciples in response to three questions they asked Him, as they left the Temple and went to the Mount of Olives.
Some of the disciples had just remarked about how beautiful the temple was. Jesus told them that the time would come when the Temple would be torn down and completely destroyed.
They were amazed at this and asked Jesus, "Tell us," they said, "when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?"
Notice the three questions:
1. when will this happen
2. what will be the sign of your coming
3. and of the end of the age
Jesus addressed these three questions. His responses to these questions are intermingled throughout the rest of the discourse.
It is not my intention to give you my interpretation of what Jesus was telling His disciples, rather, I want to steer you to some really great information and links that will help you in your personal quest to understand the “Signs Of The Times.”
From my own personal studies I am convinced that we are in the End Times spoken of by Jesus in the Olivet Discourse. The Bible tells us to study to show ourselves approved a workman, rightly dividing the word. I feel you will get more out of a personal study than just reading what I have to say about this topic.
Here are some links that I have studied on the above topic:

Be advised that some people (Preterist)… believe all prophecy ended when the Temple was destroyed in 70AD. NOT SO!
Please note that our own Ron Nichols of Faith Writers has posted some very good studies on The End Times. You can access his material at:
I highly recommend you read and study Ron’s material with the Bible opened to the Chapters he expounds on.
ALWAYS study any author’s take on Bible topics with the original source, the Bible. Never take what any man tells you as the Gospel without the Gospel lending credence to their study.
I want to share with you some of the web sites I refer to, to enhance my studies. All these sites are free and I feel you will get a lot of great information from them. As always, back up anything you read with the Bible. You will find that the best of the best Eschatologist will differ on some things. Take what they have to say and what you read in the Bible and let the Holy Spirit help you to rightly discern the Word.
The above sites will direct you to many other sites that I have referred to in my studies. I pray you will take time to find out what is coming upon this earth and the joy we can have by knowing our savior is coming to save us from the terror of His judgment. We are His bride and he will take us from here before the first seal of the Seven Seal Judgment is opened and the rider on the white horse is loosed, (the Antichrist).
More sites you may find informative:
Again, I do not agree with the conclusions of some of the authors, but I feel you will gain from studying the various takes on what is coming. Let him that have eyes, see and he that has ears, hear.
I have a ton of articles I downloaded and pasted in word concerning the end times and many other Bible topics. If you would like me to send you more information on any topic, please email me and I will be glad to share with you.
God bless you. Get into the Word and know the One who is coming back for you any day now. Even so, come quickly Lord Jesus.
