Scripture: Matthew 24:1-3
In Matthew 24:1-3, Jesus is asked specifically three questions by the twelve. Verse 3 says, “Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, ‘Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?’” The twelve were looking for the full measure of Jesus’ authority resident in the church and they were expectant for that manifestation. They experienced the reality of that Kingdom for three and one half years. They saw it in contact with darkness and they saw the darkness flee when people believed what was preached. Their three and one half year experience in God’s seminar was invaluable because it prepared them for what to expect when the Holy Spirit came on the day of Penecost. They knew how to preach dominion because they had practiced dominion for three and one half years.
