You are correct: Only a few hints such as the "generation that the fig tree (Israel) has sprouted.
Jesus said, "Then those who are in Judea must flee to the mountains. A man who is on the roof of his house must not take the time to go down and
get his belongings from his house. A man who is in the field must not go back to get his cloak. How terrible it will be for pregnant or nursing
mothers. Pray to God that you will not have to run away during the winter or on a Sabbath. For the trouble at that time will be far more terrible
than any there has been since the beginning of the world nor will there be anything like it again. But God has already decided to shorten the time
period of those awful days for the sake of the chosen, otherwise, no one would be saved."
"Then, if anyone says to you, 'Look, the Messiah is here' or 'He's there!'---- do not believe him. For false Messiahs and false prophets will
appear performing signs and wonders so great that they would fool or mislead the chosen, if that were possible. Remember, I have told you about it
before it happens: so if they tell you, 'Look, he is in the desert,' do not go out there; or 'He is in the city inside a big building,' do
not believe it."
"For The Son Of Man Will Come Like The Lightning,
Which Flashes Across The Whole Sky From The East To The West."
"Soon after the trouble of those days, the sun will grow dark, the moon will no longer shine, the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers in
the universe will be driven from their courses. Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky; and all the peoples of earth will cry in
fear as they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. He will send out his angels with a mighty trumpet blast
and they will gather his chosen from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other."
"From the fig tree learn a lesson. When it's branches grow tender and sprouts leaves, you realize that summer is near. In the same way, when you
see all these things happening, you will know that end of this age is near, and a new age is about to begin. I assure you, the generation that
sees these signs will not pass away until all this takes place. The heavens and the earth will pass away but my words will not pass away."
"As for the exact day or hour, no one knows it, not the angels in heaven nor the Son, but it is known only to the Father. When the Son of Man
comes, it will be like it was in the days when Noah lived on the earth. Before the flood, people were eating and drinking, getting married, right
up to the day Noah entered the ark. They were totally unconcerned until the flood came and destroyed them."
"So it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. Two men will be out in the field; one will be taken and one will be left. Two women will be
grinding meal; one will be taken and one will be left. Watch out, then, because you do not know what day your Lord will come. If the owner of the
house knew when the thief was coming he would keep a watchful eye and not allow his house to be broken into. So then, you must always be ready,"
"Because The Son Of Man Will Come At An Hour When You Are Not Expecting Him."
