Mark 13 The End Times Pt. 2

Jesus warns the reader about circumstances that will come, so that we will not freak out if we see those days.

"When you see..." implies that someone 'will see'.  This expectancy fuels our resolve to be disciple making disciples today, and for those believers present during the end times to NOT lose it when the last-days tribulation comes upon the earth. 

There is great hope for those who overcome the challenges of those days.

Mark 13 The End Times Pt. 1

In around 30 AD, Jesus correctly predicts the future event which we know occurred in 70AD and goes further to declare yet-future events about the end of the world; more horrible things than have been since the creation by God, or ever will be until God ends the world.  We live in the tension between the prophecies of Jesus Christ the Son of God, the lamb who shares God's throne.  What Jesus said has either come true; or still has yet to, but will come true.

Mark 12 18-27

 Believing the testimony of God and walking in faith
will demonstrate the power of God as He keeps His promises to us 
and shows us that we may know He is true.

We walk by faith, not by sight

The Sadducees are in denial of the metaphysical world
No angels
No resurrection
Just the social dynamic of good living

Jesus rebukes them and His words instruct us today
