CI Scofield, in his commentary on Matthew, chapter 24 says it like this: “All (referring to all scripture references concerning the end of the age) - “All that has characterized the age gathers into an awful intensity at the end.” (i.e., the end of the age).
Technology is advancing so rapidly that it cannot even be tracked. As soon as you think you are up-to-date, you find out that there is faster and better available, somewhere.
This ultra-rapid pace, in a spiritually declining world, is what God prophesied would happen at the end of the age. There is an end of the age and it is accurately exampled in Matthew 24:3-14 and paralleled in Luke 21. Matthew 24:3, “And as He sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto Him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? And what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?”
Jesus addresses three issues here:
2 The sign of the coming of the Lord, Jesus
3 The end of the world (age)"
