So, while Jesus is carrying His cross to the hill where he was to be curcified he stops and says the following to a few women who were sobbing over what they were witnessing.....
Luke 22: 28-31
28But Jesus turning to them said, "Daughters of Jerusalem, stop weeping for Me, but weep for yourselves and for your children.
29"For behold, the days are coming when they will say, '(W)Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bore, and the breasts that never nursed.'
30"Then they will begin TO (X)SAY TO THE MOUNTAINS, 'FALL ON US,' AND TO THE HILLS, 'COVER US.'
31"For if they do these things when the tree is green, what will happen when it is dry?"
So, clearly Christ was prophesying about difficult times to come on the earth. His point was that if humans act this way while the Son of God is walking among them and teaching, loving, healing and fulfilling so many prophecies how bad will it be when the Messiah's physically leaves the earth? When I look at prophecy I immediately ask, has this prophecy been fulfilled as of today.
With this specific prophetic word spoken by Christ I have begun to think that maybe it was a condition of the earth Christ was preparing believers for that would start soon after his resurrection and continue until the events of Revelation are complete.
On a personal note I remember being a young adult (early 90's) and hearing people around me question if children should be brought into this world as they were astonished at the evil acts being committed around the world and the general deterioration of society. Well, I chose to have kids and haven't regretted it for one minute. Now, one thing that constantly amazes me is how quickly things are happening in the arena of politics on the world stage. So, how does this prophecy relate to today?
