From Pastor Perry

04/15/2019 Matthew 24:1-2

24 Jesus left the temple and was going away, when his disciples came to point out to him the buildings of the temple. But he answered them, “You see all these, do you not? Truly, I say to you, there will not be left here one stone upon another that will not be thrown down.”

 

Another prophecy that is fulfilled after Jesus’s death, resurrection, and ascension.  The Temple was in fact destroyed in AD 70 by the Romans.  This is widely documented, and the Temple has never been rebuilt.  The Lutheran Study Bible states “In response to His disciples’ admiring comments about the temple, Jesus predicts its destruction. The things of this world do not endure. All earthly splendor will be forgotten on the Last Day. Understanding the provisional nature of material things leads us to place our highest hopes in the Lord and what He has in store for us in the new heavens and new earth.”

 

I pray: You alone are our life and hope, O Lord. Help us to set our hearts and affections on You, for in the end everything else will give way. Amen.[1]

Look at the Words say they "fell away". The had it, but lost it. Just like the Bible says your name can be blotted out of the Book of Life.
