The PASSING AWAY of Heaven and Earth, The World, The Death, The Age of Old Covenant Israel took place in 70 A.D.

Scripture speaks of the passing away of heaven and earth (in a convenantal apocalyptic sense), rulers, the world (covenantal world), prophecy, tongues, knowledge, the partial, the darkness… Scripture also gives the timing of when this would take place: THIS GENERATION (1st century), THIS WORLD (old covenant world of Judaism), THIS AGE (old covenant age was the age Christ and the apostles were in and the one they spoke of ending and in its last days).
