Mathew 24:32 seems to be a reference to Israel (the fig tree).  If that is
so, then there appears to be reason to think that what Jesus said in verse
34 refers not to the generation to which Jesus was speaking, but to the
generation that sees Israel 'putting forth leaves' (whatever that means,
it must refer at least to something of significance in Israeli
nationalism, or vitality). That almost certainly would put it in our time
(or later) since Israel was not a recognizable entity in the world for
many centuries (And still - since the "ten lost tribes which are
definitely a part of Israel have not yet been restored).

The passage is reproduced below.

On the other hand, verse 36 indicates in context that although we maybe
able to discern the general time frame, we not nail down with any
exactitude when the Christ will return for His own.
Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and
putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:
  33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is
near, even at the doors.
  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.
  37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of
man be.
  38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and
drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe
entered into the ark,
