Daily Bible Reading: Mark 13:1 – 13
Verse of the Day: Mark 13:5 – “And Jesus began to say unto them, Take heed that no man lead you astray.”
Chapter 13 of Mark is a section of Scripture that Jesus teaches on the end times (see Matthew 24 also). He instructs on the signs of the end times, the great tribulation, and His return.
He starts in this verse by saying that there will be those who will seek to deceive the believers from holding strong in their looking for Him. The last days will include religious deception, international conflicts, earthquakes, famines, and persecution of Christians.
The whole earth will be a place of chaos. However, Jesus reminds us in this section that the gospel will continue to spread. It will ultimately triumph in the return of the King. Don’t lose heart, speak up and stand strong.
Prayer: Jesus, we look forward to Your return. To see You face to face is a heartfelt desire. Give me the courage to stand and speak to those who need Your Saving Grace. Amen
