For the Kingdom of God is among you. " NIV 21 nor will people say, 'Here it is,' or 'There it is,' because the kingdom of God is within you." NLT 22 Later he talked again about this with his disciples. "The time is coming when you will long to share in the days of the Son of Man, but you won't be able to," he said.

It will be as evident as the lightning that flashes across the sky. NIV 24 For the Son of Man in his day will be like the lightning, which flashes and lights up the sky from one end to the other.

People went about their daily business -- eating and drinking, buying and selling, farming and building -- NIV 28 "It was the same in the days of Lot. People were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building. NLT 29 until the morning Lot left Sodom. Then fire and burning sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all.

NIV 30 "It will be just like this on the day the Son of Man is revealed. NLT 31 On that day a person outside the house must not go into the house to pack. A person in the field must not return to town. NIV 31 On that day no one who is on the roof of his house, with his goods inside, should go down to get them. Likewise, no one in the field should go back for anything. NLT 32 Remember what happened to Lot's wife! NIV 32 Remember Lot's wife!
