After the destruction of the Jewish Temple in AD 70, God no longer lived in a Temple made with hands. God lived in a Temple of people (hearts) now–His Kingdom of God on Earth. SEE: Colossians 1:26-27; Mark 9:1; Matthew 5:17-18. (These verses are below.)
Jesus returned in the clouds in 66 AD (according to Josephus) to establish the ‘Heaven and Earth‘ of the New Covenant World.
Like the New wine that burst the Old wine skins, Jesus was coming to establish the ‘New Heaven and Earth’ and to speed the passing of the ‘Heaven and Earth‘ of the Old Covenant age.
34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but My Father only. [IT WAS 70 AD]
30 Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done.
31 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
32 But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. [THAT DAY WAS 70 AD]
32 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.
33 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
26 Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:
27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: THE KINGDOM OF GOD
Regarding saints (verse 26 above): SEE:
9 And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That there be some of them that stand here, which shall not taste of death, till they have seen the kingdom of God come with power. (Josephus wrote that this occurred in 66 AD.)
17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.
18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. HEAVEN AND EARTH HAD TO PASS SO THAT THE OLD COVENANT NO LONGER APPLIED; AND WAS REPLACED BY THE NEW COVENANT—CHRIST IN YOU.
