Mark Day 37
Read: Mark 13:1-13
And Jesus began to say to them, “See that no one leads you astray. 6 Many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am he!’ and they will lead many astray. 7 And when you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be alarmed. This must take place, but the end is not yet.
See to it that no one leads you astray. Once again, it’s important that you can see the truth. You will see many come in Jesus’ name and you will see wars and there will be rumors of wars but do not be afraid. Look at the world from your heart and what you believe in Jesus. Judgment is coming. Judgment is built into creation and it’s something that God works with to take man’s eyes off what is false to see what is true. If you can hear the words of Jesus, you can see through the window of Jesus. Don’t be impressed with what man builds or what man says, be impressed with what Jesus says. Judgment is coming but God is bigger than our trouble. See to it that no one leads you astray. He who endures to the end will be saved. (Mark 13:13) Jesus is speaking to the here and now and the then and there. Judgment was coming to Jerusalem and everything man had made would be torn down. But judgment is coming again before He comes again. And He is coming; Jesus said so, and we must adjust our eyes to look for Him and not the hate of a world that doesn’t want to recognize Him. Don’t be anxious, be armed with the Holy Spirit.
