They are not lies. I have explained them and I will be glad to continue about this topic if you comment on those explanations.

36I tell you the truth, all this will come upon this generation. Matthew 23

34I tell you the truth, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. Matthew 24

30I tell you the truth, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. Mark 13

The authors of the New Testament thought they were living in the last days.

7Therefore you do not lack any spiritual gift as you eagerly wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed. 8He will keep you strong to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 1

29What I mean, brothers, is that the time is short. 1 Corinthians 7

15According to the Lord's own word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left till the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. 16For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. 18Therefore encourage each other with these words. 1 Thessalonians 4:15-18

2but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe. Hebrews 1:2

20He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake. 1 Peter 1:20

18Dear children, this is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come. This is how we know it is the last hour. 1 John 2:18

8You too, be patient and stand firm, because the Lord's coming is near. James 5:8

Most of the New Testament authors thought they were living in the last days. Jesus himself said that he shall return within the last generation.
