The End

Duane Vander Klok

Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?”

And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.” –Matthew 24:3-14

As we see our society being led astray by media, politics, and fear, we can know we are approaching the end of the age. But God knew that this would be a time of struggle and gave us the Holy Spirit who will guide us through.  

Though you might feel surrounded by the plans of the enemy, you were created for such a time as this. And as believers, our calling is to bring the good news to every corner of the world. How can you reach those around you with the gospel?
