Luke 21:35-38

Luke 21:35 (KJB)
For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.

The suddenness of the return of Christ is going to entrap all the people of the world. Those who are unsaved and have no concept of being ready for His return will be caught off guard and all their big plans will now come to an end. No one will escape the Judgment Seat of Christ, only those who have become saved will escape the judgment.

Luke 21:36 (KJB)
Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

The final admonition of Jesus on this subject is to always watch that we do not get snared into the world’s temptations and we are to pray and seek God to give us the wisdom to avoid those things which could ensnare a person. The only way a person is accounted worthy is if they are saved through the grace of God in Christ. We will be here till the last day and will experience what the world will experience in the realm of natural things when the Lord begins to wind this world and universe down. The true Christian will know what is happening and will not be part of all the anxiety and fears which the rest of the unbelieving word will face. The unbelievers will not be able to stand before the Lord in the sense that they will be found guilty of their sins because they have no savior. The true believer will be able to stand because their sins have been paid for and Christ’s salvation makes them worthy and accepted because they have already been judged in Christ and found not guilty.

Luke 21:37 (KJB)
And in the day time he was teaching in the temple; and at night he went out, and abode in the mount that is called the mount of Olives.

During these last few hours before the crucifixion, He would teach in the temple in the daytime and then return to the Mount of Olives at night. Jesus did this everyday until it was the time of the Passover.

Luke 21:38 (KJB)
And all the people came early in the morning to him in the temple, for to hear him.

There were many among the crowds who gathered in Jerusalem who wanted to hear Jesus teach, so every morning they gathered to hear Him teach. This scenario must have aggravated the religious leaders very much.
