There are prophecies that Jesus said MUST happen before His return to the earth to receive His Bride, the true remnant church. You will find that they have ALL been fulfilled, with the exception of the seven plagues of Revelation that occur directly before Jesus returns. I pray you will be blessed deeply by the truth provided in God's Holy Word.
The first prophecy is well known among many Christians today to have already been fulfilled. Most of today's history books do record this event as having occurred, however, they don't acknowledge the fact that Jesus prophesied this event more than thirty years prior to it's actual fulfillment.
# 1- JESUS SAID BEFORE HIS RETURN, HIS FOLLOWERS IN JERUSALEM MUST FLEE TO THE MOUNTAINS, AND THEN JERUSALEM WILL BE DESTROYED. Pointing to the magnificent Temple He declared not one stone would be left upon another!
"When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:" Matthew 24:15,16
HISTORIC FACT IS...
# 1 In A.D.66 when Cestius came against the city, but unaccountably withdrew, the Christians discerned in this the sign foretold by Christ, and fled while 1,100,000 Jews are said to have been killed in the terrible siege in A.D. 70. (The attack of the Roman warrior Titus occurred in 70 A.D. killing the 1,100,000 Jews) Eusebius, Church History, book 3, chap. 5
