As he came out of the temple, one of his disciples said to him, “Look, Teacher, what large stones and what large buildings!” Then Jesus asked him, “Do you see these great buildings? Not one stone will be left here upon another; all will be thrown down.” When he was sitting on the Mount of Olives opposite the temple, Peter, James, John, and Andrew asked him privately, “Tell us, when will this be, and what will be the sign that all these things are about to be accomplished?” Then Jesus began to say to them, “Beware that no one leads you astray. Many will come in my name and say, ‘I am he!’ and they will lead many astray. When you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be alarmed; this must take place, but the end is still to come. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; there will be earthquakes in various places; there will be famines. This is but the beginning of the birthpangs. (Mark 13:1-8, NRSV)
Signs, signs everywhere there signs…
blocking the scenery, breaking my mind,
do this! don’t do that! can’t you read the signs…
Can’t you read the signs?
So many people now a days and I’m sure even shortly after Jesus ascended were saying, or are saying, the world is going to end.
The signs are all around us!
But these signs have been there and will still be there. So when will the world end?
When God is ready for it to. And not a moment before. And it is not for us to worry about.
We are to stay focused on Jesus and follow Him and do what He has set before us to do.
Don’t get caught up in reading the signs because you will read them wrong. Just follow Jesus!
