PROPHECIES MUST BE FULFILLED
Christ's Prophesy of the Destruction of Jerusalem
HISTORICAL ACCOUNT OF
The prophetic words of Christ and all prophetic words necessarily become fulfilled, for true prophets are known by the true fulfillment of their prophecies. Jesus Christ told his disciples in prophecy regarding the temple which they were admiring: "And as some spoke of the temple how it was adorned with beautiful stones; and He said: As for these things which you behold, the days will come, in which there shall not be one stone upon another that shall not be thrown down" (Luke 21:6). In another prophecy, lamenting He said: "Jerusalem, Jerusalem; which kills the prophets and stones them that are sent to you; how often would I have gathered your children together, as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you would not! Behold your house is left to you desolate; and amen, I say to you, you shall not see me until when you say: Blessed is He that comes in the name of the Lord" (Luke 13:34-35).
