All About GOD

All About GOD - Growing Relationships with Jesus and Others

Luke 21:32 Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened.

I've seen several debates on what "this generation" means but I've wondered about the true meaning. In reading this again the other day, something leapt off the page.

Verse 33: Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.

We know that there will be a new heaven and new earth. We also know we will have new bodies.

Could this generation be the generation of this current earth and perishable bodies, with the new generation coming for eternity, imperishable?

We are not yet in the millennium which will be for last a thousand years.  Study up on the dispensations in which God deals with man in different ways and it will help understand the current age, which I believe we are in, and the millennium.

I'm not sure what you mean about the millennium. I'm looking at what generation is being referred to in "this generation".

The Millennium is the 1000 year reign of Christ where he reigns on the new earth.

Yeah. I just don't get where it relates. We're given new bodies, just like a new earth, whether that earth is 1,000 years or however long. But are the new bodies the next generation after this one?

I've seen comments that the rapture already occurred and it was talking about that generation of the apostles. Others believe one apostle never died. Others believe it's the generation of their offspring. Others say it's the generation of Abraham's seed, which may be the same thing, just said differently.

There's been a debate going as to what the generation is that is spoken of here. I'm thinking it may be the generation of our current bodies, and the new generation will be our new bodies.

All I know is I don't want to be stuck with this one. 


Yes I believe this could be the "generation" spoken about here in scripture. Looking at the world around us it is not hard to draw a parallel to the world spoken of here in Luke.

We are told by Jesus to "Be careful,or your hearts will be  weighed down with carousing, drunkenness or the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you suddenly like a trap." Luke 21:34 LASB

Be always on the watch!

Pray! We are hungry for spiritual maturity so that we will be ready to do God's will as we await the return of Jesus.

This is such great scriptures! :-D

What he talk about is not what you guys reply.

He say what if all life on this earth is "this generation" and the next generation is life on new earth after we get new bodies.

I think this not be the case, but is a good thought.  Never heard it before.
