21:27 And then [after the signs of Luke 21:25-26] shall they [the generation on the earth which sees these signs shall] see
 the Son of man coming
[a.] in a cloud
[b.] with power and
[c.] [with] great glory.
21:28 And when these things
 begin to come to pass [Jews, born again after the Rapture of the Church, shall see the beginning of these things (c/p. vs. 31)],
[a.] then look up, and
[b.] lift up your heads; for
[c.] your redemption draweth nigh [the second coming of Jesus to redeem Israel].
21:29 And he spake to them a parable;
[b.] all the trees [all the other nations of the world];
21:30  When they now shoot forth,
[a.] ye see and
[b.] [ye]know of your own selves that
[11.] summer is now nigh at hand.
21:31 So likewise ye,
 when ye see these things come to pass [Jesus’ disciples of (Luke 21:7)—or rather His Church—shall see the beginning of these things (c/p. vs. 28)],
[a.] know ye that the kingdom of God [the millennial kingdom of the great king Jesus]
[11.] is nigh at hand.
21:32 Verily I say unto you,
 This generation [the generation that sees the signs of vs. 25-26] shall not pass away,
[a.] till all be fulfilled.
21:33  Heaven and earth shall pass away: but
[a.] my words shall not pass away.
 take heed to yourselves,
[a.] lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with
[11.] surfeiting, and
[12.] drunkenness, and
[13.] cares of this life, and
[b.] [so] that day
[11.] come upon you unawares.
 as a snare
[a.] shall it come
[11.] on all them that dwell
[aa.] on the face of the whole earth.
 pray always,
[a.] that ye may be accounted worthy [worthy by the blood of the Lamb]
[11.] to escape all these things [don’t miss the Rapture; and don’t loose your faith when you see the signs of verse 25-26]
[aa.] that shall come to pass, and
[12.] to stand
[ab.] before the Son of man [in the throne room of God (Rev. 7:9)].
