Mark 13- Always Be Ready

But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch. Mark 13:32-34

Theres alot of false teachers that have made alot of money , predicting the return of Christ. All you have to do is read your Bible, Nobody knows the day or hour, Nobody! So anyone claiming to know when Christ will return is a false teacher. 

So what do we do while we wait for Christ to return? The scripture tells us “Christ gave authority to his servants (Church) to do his work and watch. What is the work of The Lord? The Great Commision, preaching the gospel, building Gods Kingdom one person at a time. Serving the least of these. Many Christians have taken a vacation from The Lords work, don’t slumber because Christ returns like a thief in the night

Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch. Mark 13:35-37

Keep your lamps lit like the 5 loyal virgins! Never slumber or fall asleep, for you don’t know when your Master will return. Keep yourself prepared and worthy to meet The Lord, if Christ came today would you be ready? What would Jesus say to you? “Well done good and faithful servant” or “Depart from me I never knew you”!

Let nobody deceive you, listen to the words and promises of your Master. He is coming back soon, and you will give an account for your life. The harvest is ready but the labors are few, how very true today. Churches are closing their doors at a rapid pace, why? Because the servants are few!

The Son of Man is coming in the clouds, are you ready? Are you watching? Are you laboring? Are you rejoicing the day when your Savior brings you home? Be ready for the King is coming soon! Amen!

Mark 13- The End Times

And as he went out of the temple, one of his disciples saith unto him, Master, see what manner of stones and what buildings are here! And Jesus answering said unto him, Seest thou these great buildings? there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. Mark 13:1-2

The destruction of the physical temple was a significant event for many reasons. Jesus foretold about this even to his disciples, the religious leaders used this prophecy as a charge of blasphemy against Jesus, imagine that. The destruction of the temple was a sign of completion of many things including the Old Covenant. Even until today, the temple has never been rebuilt and the Mosaic Law can’t be followed

In AD 70 , the physical temple was destroyed by the Roman Empire, as prophesied by Jesus. This fulfillment is the sign of the end of Judaism as known in the Bible, and demonstrated the arrival of the New Covenant through Jesus Christ. 

And as he sat upon the mount of Olives over against the temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew asked him privately, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign when all these things shall be fulfilled? And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you: For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. Mark 13:3-6

The disciples were puzzled and asked Jesus privately, when will all these things happen? Jesus gave them signs of the end. For centuries theologians debated on when the end of the world or return of Christ will happen, remember Jesus said “Nobody knows the day or hour” (Matthew 24:36) also Gods time is not the same as our time.

The destruction of the temple was a kickoff for the clock until Christ’s return. Jesus first warns about false prophets and the Anti Christ. Till this day we see many false religions and false teachers who claim to be a prophet or have divine knowledge and have misled millions of people to Hell. Don’t be deceived!

And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows. But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them. And the gospel must first be published among all nations Mark 13:7-10

Many cling to the last scripture “The gospel must first be preached to all nations” as the final completion for Christ’s return. Those who are preterist, has this really already happened? With today’s technology, the gospel is being preached worldwide everyday at lightning speed. We could see in our lifetime the gospel reached to every nation, literally!

The fact is we know Christ will return, when it doesn’t matter! We need to always be ready, as he is coming as a thief in the night, keep your lamps lit in Jesus name Amen!
