“Take Heed, Keep Alert”

“Take Heed, Keep Alert”

Blessings folk!

As was His habit and style, Jesus now gives more insight to His answers through parables/comparisons,

Mar 13:28-33

“Now learn the parable from the fig tree: when its branch has already become tender and puts forth its leaves, you know that summer is near.

“Even so, you too, when you see these things happening, 
recognize that He is near, right at the door.

“Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place.

“Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away.

“But of that day or hour no one knows,
not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone.

“Take heed, keep on the alert; for you do not know when the appointed time will come.

Jesus is saying this…

We will not know the day nor the hour of His return.
But, we will be able to discern the season!

When the sun and moon go dark…
When the stars fall from the heavens…(which is possible Happy&hellipWinking
Then we will know He is right at the door.

The generation that sees such will not pass away until it is accomplished.

What are we to do?

“Take heed.”
“Be on the alert.”

Jesus tells us much about the future.
Therefore, when someone says “we don’t/can’t know the future”, then you know they do not know the Word.

Jesus tells us much to do…
“See to it that no one misleads you…”
“See to it that you are not frightened…”
“Be on guard…”
“Do not worry about what you will say…”
“Take heed…”
“Be on the alert…”

So, when someone says that “there is nothing we can do”, you know they do not know the Word.

Be prepared…
