and the powers of the heavens will be shaken; and then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky.
Then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky with power and great glory.

“Now from the fig tree learn this parable: When its branch has now become tender and produces its leaves, you know that the summer is near.

Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.
