Luke 21:20–28
Jesus said to his disciples, “When you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation has come near. Then those in Judea must flee to the mountains, and those inside the city must leave it, and those out in the country must not enter it; for these are days of vengeance, as a fulfillment of all that is written. Woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing infants in those days! For there will be great distress on the earth and wrath against this people; they will fall by the edge of the sword and be taken away as captives among all nations; and Jerusalem will be trampled on by the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.

1. The armies surrounded us may not be visible, but I can always detect its coming by paying attention to my feelings. How do I feel now, and what does God tries to speak to me with such a feeling?
2. Is the Jerusalem in my heart trampled by things and ideas that are not from God?
