Mark 13:29 “When you see these things happening, know that it is near, at the door.”
Jesus said there would come a time in history that would be like no other. He said, “When you see these things (birth pains) happening know His return is near, at the doors.” This message of encouragement is for you and me today. His instruction is for the generation which will see His return to earth. This generation will recognize that time, for it will be like no other, filled worldwide with unusual lawlessness, earthquakes, incurable viruses and diseases. It will be a time with open and blatant immorality that will be encouraged by the majority, made lawful by governments.
We are absolutely the generation Jesus spoke of, for all these things are being experienced by us in the world. Very few people believe the biblical record that describes His awesome return. Even some “biblical scholars” try to say it is just metaphorical, that a real Jesus will not step down from heaven and come to earth. They are wrong–and He will!
But, many people don’t want to hear it. They don’t want to think about it. And, many will try to bury the account of it so others won’t see it (Bibles removed from schools, prayer prohibited, etc.). But He is coming. In this generation. His return is sooner than you think.
The question is…are you ready for that day, that hour of His return? Ready to meet Him face to face…the King of Kings and Lord of Lords!
