One of the most tormenting situations humanity knows is "waiting for the other shoe to drop." For example, you "read the writing on the wall," and know that you'll soon be in the job market again. Business is slowing down, and the manager's demeanor is preoccupied. Meanwhile, you show up, do your work, and wait.
At the time Jesus gave this prophecy, it looked as though the governing powers of Israel were firmly ensconced. The political order in place looked stable, enduring, final. But, appearances were deceiving. Serious instability was in the cards.
Luk 21:25 "Güneşte, ayda ve yıldızlarda belirtiler görülecek. Yeryüzünde uluslar denizin ve dalgaların uğultusundan şaşkına dönecek, dehşete düşecekler.Let's look at a few phrases:
Luk 21:26 Dünyanın üzerine gelecek felaketleri bekleyen insanlar korkudan bayılacak. Çünkü göksel güçler sarsılacak.
Luk 21:27 O zaman İnsanoğlu'nun* bulut içinde büyük güç ve görkemle geldiğini görecekler.
Luk 21:28 Bu olaylar gerçekleşmeye başlayınca doğrulun ve başlarınızı kaldırın. Çünkü kurtuluşunuz yakın demektir."
- Çünkü -- Because
- göksel -- heavenly
- güçler -- powers
- sarsılacak -- will be shaken
- kurtuluşunuz -- your salvation
- yakın -- near
- demektir -- standing is.
Jesus assures his people that the other shoe will drop, but life will go on.
 This American metaphor dates back to the old "boarding house" days. You have a small downstairs room. Just as you are dozing off, the renter upstairs drops one shoe on his floor, your ceiling -- and you can't get to sleep, while "waiting for the other shoe to drop."
 A reference to an incident in the Book of Daniel, when an angel's hand wrote a fiery message on the wall of the palace, curing a licentious feast. It was bad news.
