Luke 17:20-37

ESV 20 Being asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, he answered them, "The kingdom of God is not coming with signs to be observed, MSG 20 Jesus, grilled by the Pharisees on when the kingdom of God would come, answered, "The kingdom of God doesn't come by counting the days on the calendar. ESV 21 nor will they say, 'Look, here it is!' or 'There!' for behold, the kingdom of God is in the midst of you." MSG 21 Nor when someone says, 'Look here!' or, 'There it is!' And why? Because God's kingdom is already among you." ESV 22 And he said to the disciples, "The days are coming when you will desire to see one of the days of the Son of Man, and you will not see it. MSG 22 He went on to say to his disciples, "The days are coming when you are going to be desperately homesick for just a glimpse of one of the days of the Son of Man, and you won't see a thing. ESV 23 And they will say to you, 'Look, there!' or 'Look, here!' Do not go out or follow them. MSG 23 And they'll say to you, 'Look over there!' or, 'Look here!' Don't fall for any of that nonsense. ESV 24 For as the lightning flashes and lights up the sky from one side to the other, so will the Son of Man be in his day. MSG 24 The arrival of the Son of Man is not something you go out to see. He simply comes. ESV 25 But first he must suffer many things and be rejected by this generation. MSG 25 But first it's necessary that he suffer many things and be turned down by the people of today. ESV 26 Just as it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the days of the Son of Man. MSG 26 "The time of the Son of Man will be just like the time of Noah - ESV 27 They were eating and drinking and marrying and being given in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. MSG 27 everyone carrying on as usual, having a good time right up to the day Noah boarded the ship. They suspected nothing until the flood hit and swept everything away. ESV 28 Likewise, just as it was in the days of Lot--they were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building, MSG 28 "It was the same in the time of Lot - the people carrying on, having a good time, business as usual ESV 29 but on the day when Lot went out from Sodom, fire and sulfur rained from heaven and destroyed them all-- MSG 29 right up to the day Lot walked out of Sodom and a firestorm swept down and burned everything to a crisp. ESV 30 so will it be on the day when the Son of Man is revealed. MSG 30 That's how it will be - sudden, total - when the Son of Man is revealed. ESV 31 On that day, let the one who is on the housetop, with his goods in the house, not come down to take them away, and likewise let the one who is in the field not turn back. MSG 31 "When the Day arrives and you're out working in the yard, don't run into the house to get anything. And if you're out in the field, don't go back and get your coat. ESV 32 Remember Lot's wife. MSG 32 Remember what happened to Lot's wife! ESV 33 Whoever seeks to preserve his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life will keep it. MSG 33 If you grasp and cling to life on your terms, you'll lose it, but if you let that life go, you'll get life on God's terms. ESV 34 I tell you, in that night there will be two in one bed. One will be taken and the other left. MSG 34 "On that Day, two men will be in the same boat fishing - one taken, the other left. ESV 35 There will be two women grinding together. One will be taken and the other left." MSG 35 Two women will be working in the same kitchen - one taken, the other left." ESV 37 And they said to him, "Where, Lord?" He said to them, "Where the corpse is, there the vultures will gather." MSG 37 Trying to take all this in, the disciples said, "Master, where?" He told them, "Watch for the circling of the vultures. They'll spot the corpse first. The action will begin around my dead body."
