“Hold Onto the Lord and Keep on Ministering”
People can easily become obsessed with end times events. They try to pinpoint where we are in the scripture. The disciples were not immune to this.
You are invited to read the following Scripture passage.
5 Some of his disciples were remarking about how the temple was adorned with beautiful stones and with gifts dedicated to God. But Jesus said,
6 “As for what you see here, the time will come when not one stone will be left on another; every one of them will be thrown down.”
7 “Teacher,” they asked, “when will these things happen? And what will be the sign that they are about to take place?”
8 He replied: “Watch out that you are not deceived. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am he,’ and, ‘The time is near.’ Do not follow them.
9 When you hear of wars and revolutions, do not be frightened. These things must happen first, but the end will not come right away.”
10 Then he said to them: “Nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom.
11 There will be great earthquakes, famines, and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven.
12 “But before all this, they will lay hands on you and persecute you. They will deliver you to synagogues and prisons, and you will be brought before kings and governors, and all on account of my name.
13 This will result in your being witnesses to them.
14 But make up your mind not to worry beforehand how you will defend yourselves.
15 For I will give you words and wisdom that none of your adversaries will be able to resist or contradict.
16 You will be betrayed even by parents, brothers, relatives, and friends, and they will put some of you to death.
17 All men will hate you because of me.
18 But not a hair of your head will perish.
19 By standing firm, you will gain life.
We have and are seeing some of these events played out. Try not to get so obsessed with the future that you are no good now.
Our Lord has everything worked out. We need only to be ready, doing the work He has given us to do.
The people on this earth are on a need to know basis. The Lord God lets us know what we need to know. Take that info and use it to better serve Him while we have breath in our lives. Amen
