“And as he sat upon 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?
And Jesus answered and said unto them, ‘Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.
Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.” (Matthew 24: 3-14)
Our Lord and Savior were asked about the events that would transpire prior to His second coming. He was very specific as to what will happen and His only instructions during this time were to not be deceived and to endure until the end.
We were warned about many calamities that would happen to the inhabitants of the world. Jesus spoke of wars, earthquakes, false prophets and the love of many growing cold and we were to not be troubled by these events. We were to find hope and strength knowing that these trials mark His return and our salvation from this world of pain.
When looking at our Savior’s words, we can understand that during this time, there will be massive suffering and death that will occur to all those who live on the earth. Modern teachers present a fairy-tale stating that Christians should not worry as they will be taken from this earth prior to any end time events occurring but Jesus himself states that we will be hated and delivered up to be afflicted. Considering that everything is in God’s power, we can see that He will allow our persecution to be the beacon of love that will lead the world to Him.
There are reasons that Jesus depicted these events in the order that He did. We can see that He is laying out how these events will transpire and we can see the persecution of the Church comes before the preaching of the gospel to the world. We can also see that during the time of Christian persecution, false prophets shall arise leading many away from the truth. Knowing this we can understand that the Church is present during this time and not taken away prior to the gospel being preached to the entire world.
And what does the only begotten Son of God give as instruction to His followers during this time? Our only instruction is to ENDURE UNTIL THE END!!
Remain safe my friends and continue being a light to the world, as we must shine! We must shine so brightly, that we will be the light to which the world will follow, so that they may understand that Jesus is the true Messiah. As without us, there shall be no light!
“Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’s sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savor, wherewith shall it be salted? It is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your father which is in heaven.
Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.” (Matthew 5: 3-17)
