When did Christ say the end would come?
"And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then
shall the end come." Verse 14.
NOTES - In AD. 60 Paul carried the gospel to Rome, which was then the capital of the world. In
Am. 64 he wrote of the saints of "Caesar's household" (Phil. 4: 22); and the same year he says that the
gospel had been "preached to every creature which is under heaven." Col. 1:23. Very soon after this
(October, AD. 66) the Romans began their attacks against Jerusalem; and three and one-half years later the
overthrow of the city and of the Jewish nation followed in the notable five months' siege under Titus, in the
spring and summer of AD. 70.
Thus it was respecting the end of the Jewish nation; and thus it will be in the end of the world as a
whole. When the gospel, or good news, of Christ's coming kingdom has been preached in all the world for
a witness unto all nations, the end of the world---of all nations---will come. As the end of the Jewish nation
came with overwhelming destruction, so will come the end of the world. Armageddon, the battle of the
nations, will be fought, and the world will be swept with the besom of destruction under the seven last
plagues. See reading on pages 79-84.
