“Be Not Frightened”

Blessings folk!

The disciples asked Jesus some questions…

Mar 13:4
“Tell us, when will these things be,
and what will be the sign when all these things are going to be fulfilled?”

Jesus began to answer…

Mar 13:5
And Jesus began to say to them, “See to it that no one misleads you.

Jesus continues with the answer…

Mar 13:7
“When you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be frightened;
those things must take place; but that is not yet the end.

The other gospels…

Mat 24:6
“You will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars.
See that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end.

Luk 21:9
“When you hear of wars and disturbances, do not be terrified;
for these things must take place first, but the end does not follow immediately.”

Jesus told them, and us, that we will hear of wars, rumors of wars and disturbance.
Jesus tells us that these things must take place.

Must take place?

We are not told.

  • To fulfill prophecy
  • To reveal the true
  • To uncover the false
  • ?

Jesus tells us that when such occurs it is not yet the end.

Jesus tells us what to do.
“See that you are not frightened…”

Again, role…responsibility…decision.

We are to see to it that we are not mislead by false Christ.
We are to see to it that we are not frightened, though we hear of wars, etc.

Therefore, see to it.

One must be saved to do so.
One must know the Word.
One must be filled with the Holy Spirit.
One must abide in the Lord.
