Mark 13:33 (NKJV) Take heed, watch and pray; for you do not know when the time is.
As we look around the world today, it is easy to say we are in the end times. The signs of the time seem to indicate that there is a stronger push to move away from God. Evil is blatantly attacking the church, the body of Christ, and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself. The Apostle Mark, tells us to “Take heed, watch and pray; for you do not know when the time is.” No one knows the day or the hour of Christ’s return. Therefore, the proper attitude of God’s people as we face the prophetic future is to watch and pray. Now watch does not mean sit on your hands and do nothing. Watch means to be aware of the attacks of the evil one, and suit up with the full Armor of God. Then go out into the battle by faith. We are to put our faith into action. That is what God’s people ought to be doing when we watch for the return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We are to be productive Christians. We ought to be getting the Word out, the message of Salvation, the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Because the world most certainly needs Jesus right now. My friend, just as the song says, Jesus is the answer for the world today. We need to keep on the alert for Christ’s return. Jesus can come back at any moment. So, Jesus tells us to “Watch!” Are you getting the Word out my friend?
God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
