Daily Bible Reading: Matthew 24:1 – 22
Verse of the Day: Matthew 24:3 – “And as he sat on the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?”
Chapters 24 and 25 in Matthew is the End Times course that Jesus taught His disciples. They ask Him these questions, and in response He shares an insight into the chronology of eschatology (end times).
Three indicators of time are given in Matthew 24:6 – 14. Read and consider these. In Matthew 24:6 – “the end is not yet.” The second is in Matthew 24:8 – “But all these things are the beginning of travail.” And the third is in Matthew 24:14 – “and then shall the end come.”
Consider these as you muse over what Jesus is saying in this important passage.
Prayer: Father, open my eyes to see the truth in Your Word. May I understand the lessons that You proclaim. May the reminder that Jesus is coming back challenge me today.
