"When shall these things happen,
and what shall be the sign of Your coming,
and of the end of the age?" (Matt. 24:3),
in existential terms, not cosmological terms

John 14:2-4 “In My Father's house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. If I go and prepare a place for you, I shall come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also. And you know the way where I am going.”; 26 "But the Helper, Ruach haKodesh (Holy Spirit), whom the Father shall send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you."; 1 Cor. 10:11 “Now these things happened to them as an example, and they were written for our instruction, upon whom the ends of the ages have come.”
His preparation is for every believer (spiritual birth) with His Spirit given to his repentant heart (temple) for the shortened days, and He comes back at the end of his mortal life to draw him up with Him.
His parables are wholly taught that everyone is commanded to repent from this world of lawlessness/darkness by His Word of Light transformed into his/her spiritual life of His Kingdom of Light in the shortened/last days for all these things (His parables) must take place (be fulfilled) in his/her temple (heart) till the end of his/her fleshly age.
We know that YHWH only sees our hearts of inwardness (temples), not our appearances,
for He comes to the repentant hearts to begin with His Word of Light in their spiritual lives and
returns at the ends of their fleshly ages to receive their souls, not at the end of this world.
Aleph coming/His first call (Spiritual birth): Luke 5:32 "I have not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance."
Spiritual life on earth: John 17:15 "I do not ask You to take them out of the world, but to keep them from the evil one."; Matt. 3:15 "...Permit it at this time; for in this way it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness."
Tau coming/His second call (Spiritual fulfilment/fleshly death): John 14:3 "If I go and prepare a place (the Kingdom*) for you, I shall come again and receive you to Myself..."; John 6:40 "For this is the will of My Father, that everyone who beholds the Son and believes in Him shall have eternal life, and I Myself shall raise him up on the last day (of his mortal life)."
* Matthew 3:2 "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand"; 25:34 "...inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world."
John 8:23 "And He was saying to them, “You are from below, I am from above; you are of this world, I am not of this world."
Those who do not repent yet are of this world (kingdom of darkness). The repentant ones are of His Kingdom of Light while dwelling temporarily in this world till their death, then they are carried to His Kingdom of Light. 2 Cor 5:1-5.
His kingdom of Light is on the one side (kingdom of immortality) and Satan's kingdom is on the other side (kingdom of mortality). This world (school) is only for all generations to come in flesh to learn His Law before they go to the heaven with their knowledge of His things fully. The ascending and descending of Him daily is for His people who repent out of kingdom of darkness and do His work for the shortened days until their fleshly death. It is not the end of world or cosmology but of dominion that Satan has done to everyone. With our repentence, we put the end of Satan s dominion by transfering us to YHWH's dominion forever.
John 16:16 "A little while (the beginning of your spiritual life at His Aleph coming upon your repentance with His Spirit given to you), and you shall not see Me (shortened days of your mortal life on the earth); and again a little while, and you shall see Me (the end of your fleshly life at His Tau coming)".
His first (Aleph) coming is for His Word of Light sown in the repentant heart for the shortened days, and
His last (Tau) coming is for his spiritual production reaped at the end of every fleshly age.
(Matt. 25: His talents given; His journey; His return for production at the end of every fleshly age; 1 Cor. 15:22-24)
