Matthew 23:37-39, 24:1-28; Mark 12:41-13:23; Luke 21:1-24
The end is near. Or at least nearer than it was the day Jesus spoke these words. But the reality is that life on planet Earth will come to an end.
Jesus wants us to be prepared, to watch out, be on guard, stand firm. Is the abomination that causes desolation already in our pulpits? False prophets will deceive some, some will turn away from the faith, the love of most will grow cold.
Don’t be one of them.
Let’s determine to stay in God’s Word, to grow, to put on the whole armor of God, and to stay true to the truth that is Jesus. “He who stands firm to the end will be saved.”
We are watching the stage being set for Jesus’ return. We are one day closer.
When I read Matthew 24, I was reminded that the Romans tore down the temple Jesus was standing in only about 40 years after he told them it would be knocked down. (70 ad) The temple still has not been rebuilt to this day.
Look how many details Jesus warned us about that are reality today. Thank God for verse 13.
I agree the signs are there. I know when He comes, He’ll come at just the right time! What a day that will be. Until then, let’s stand firm, and be the Church still making disciples for His sake right up until that trumpet blows!
