Matthew 24:15 “So when you see standing in the holy place ‘the abomination that causes desolation,’ spoken of through the prophet Daniel'
let the reader understand— 16 then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. 17 Let no one on the housetop go down to take anything out of the house. 18 Let no one in the field go back to get their cloak. 19 How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers! 20 Pray that your flight will not take place in winter or on the Sabbath. 21 For then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now—and never to be equaled again.
22 “If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened. 23 At that time if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Messiah!’ or, ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. 24 For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. 25 See, I have told you ahead of time.
26 “So if anyone tells you, ‘There he is, out in the wilderness,’ do not go out; or, ‘Here he is, in the inner rooms,’ do not believe it. 27 For as lightning that comes from the east is visible even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. 28 Wherever there is a carcass, there the vultures will gather.
29 “Immediately after the distress of those days
‘the sun will be darkened,
and the moon will not give its light;
the stars will fall from the sky,
and the heavenly bodies will be shaken
30 “Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven. And then all the peoples of the earth will mourn when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory. 31 And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.
32 “Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. 33 Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it is near, right at the door. 34 Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. 35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.
What does he mean in verse 34? What generation is He talking about.

A temple rotting to decay, the sun being darkened, the moon not shining, the stars falling from the sky, heavenly bodies being shaken.... these are all future events or events that will take a while to occur.

According to the commentary at "got questions", Jesus is saying, once all this gets started, it's going to go quick... one generation.... not ten generations.... one.

Y'all be careful.... cause I've seen articles about space junk, solar flares, and meteors. Wouldn't it be something if one of the space craft were to start the ball rolling, shifting the weight of a meteor by landing on it... skewing its original trajectory. Wouldn't it be proper for God to allow a human to destroy the Universe? After all, we think we're smarter than God! Maybe Jesus is really saying.... "Some of you humans are so smart you'll destroy the universe with your nonsense".... and the interpreter didn't understand? After all, there is a secret in Revelation that God didn't let John explain to us.

Have you noticed all the solar flares going on lately. Is the news better at reporting or are the Heavens more active? Are we better at analyzing with our mighty telescopes that are out there in space? Are the meteors getting closer to Earth or Mars or Venus, or are we just better at reporting them? Is the universe ready to collide with a black hole or are we just better at reporting them? Are the celestial events adding up?

Luckily, God has no intent that His children will be harmed. He'll pick us up first. Kind of like taking in the patio furniture before a major storm comes through. God will send Jesus and the angels. We'll all be aware. The warning we get from FEMA or NOAA will be nothing compared to the warning that "generation" will endure.

We'll thank God, it went so quickly.
