The expression “all these things” includes all the foretold events during Jesus’ presence, from its beginning in 1914 until its culmination at the “great tribulation.”—Matt. 24:21.
Drearyweather, thanks for the correction, on the scheduled departure time of the anointed. Above a quote from one of the links.
The weasel words " at the culmination" of the great Tribulation, hides the fact that not just Armageddon, but the departure of the Goats into Gehenna and the entry of the Sheep into bliss are included in the end time prophecy, and the Generation is not supposed to pass away before all that. and
The uplifted Anointed are supposed to be battle ready participants in that Conflict.
The days should not cut short for the dying anointed, but for the sake of the surviving generation that starts the new world? right? . To the contrary: The rulers with Christ are supposed to die by the axe right? short and sweet.
Only the survivors of Armageddon would be the Generation that does not pass away, and the Anointed are not it. wt take note.
