MOUNT OF OLIVES:The End is Coming!

It was 6:30 AM, we could see the sun shining on the “Old City”  across the Kidron Valley from the Mount of Olives where we sat.  As Kay taught from Matthew 24,  I pictured the scene as Jesus and His disciples were here talking more then 2,000 years ago.

As He was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “…what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?”  Matthew 24:3

When is the end coming?  When is Jesus coming again?  Questions we still want answered today.  Although Jesus spoke of signs, He warned them…

“But the one who endures to the end, he will be saved.”  Matthew 24:13

“Therefore be on the alert, for you do not know which day your Lord is coming.”  Matthew 24:42

“For this reason you also must be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not think He will.” Matthew 24:44

I wonder if we should be less concerned about signs and more concerned with being alert and ready.
