15 But obtained a promise that they should find  it, and see it in their flesh.
16 Wherefore hearken and I will reason with you,  and I will speak unto you and prophesy as unto  men in days of old, and I will show it plainly as I  showed it unto my disciples, as I stood before them  in the flesh and spake unto them saying:
17 As ye have asked of me concerning the signs  of my coming, in the day when I shall come in my  glory, in the clouds of heaven, to fulfil the promis es that I have made unto your fathers;
18 For as ye have looked upon the long absence  of your spirits from your bodies to be a bondage, I  will show unto you how the day of redemption shall  come and also the restoration of the scattered Israel.
19 And now ye behold this temple which is in Je rusalem, which ye call the house of God, and your  enemies say that this house shall never fall.
20 But verily I say unto you, that desolation shall  come upon this generation as a thief in the night,  and this people shall be destroyed and scattered  among all nations.
21 And this temple which ye now see, shall be  thrown down that there shall not be left one stone  upon another.
22 And it shall come to pass, that this generation  of Jews shall not pass away, until every desolation  which I have told you concerning them, shall come  to pass.
23 Ye say that ye know, that the end of the world  cometh; ye say also that ye know, that the heavens  and the earth shall pass away; and in this ye say  truly, for so it is;
24 But these things which I have told you, shall  not pass away until all shall be fulfilled. [p. 105]
