Jesus Foretells the Future
Today's Passage: Matthew 24:15-29
Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the passage NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
15. The day is coming when you will see what Daniel the prophet spoke about ⏤ the sacrilegious object that causes desecration standing in the Holy Place."
(Reader, pay attention!)
16. "Then those in Judea must flee to the hills.
17. A person out on the deck of a roof must not go down into the house to pack.
18. A person out in the field must not return even to get a coat.
19. How terrible it will be for pregnant women and for nursing mothers in those days.
20. And pray that your flight will not be in winter or on the Sabbath.
21. For there will be greater anguish than at any time since the world began.
And it will never be so great again.
22. In fact, unless that time of calamity is shortened, not a single person will survive.
But it will be shortened for the sake of God's chosen ones.
23. Then if anyone tells you, 'Look, here is the Messiah,' or 'There he is,' don't believe it.
24. For false messiahs and false prophets will rise up
and perform great signs and wonders so as to receive,
if possible, even God's chosen ones.
25. See, I have warned you about this ahead of time.
26. So if someone tells you, 'Look, the Messiah is out in the desert,'
don't bother to go and look.
Or, 'Look,' he is hiding here,' don't believe it!
27. For as the lightning flashes in the east and shines to the west,
so it will be when the Son of Man comes.
28. Just as the gathering of vultures shows there is a carcass nearby,
so these signs indicate that the end is near.
29. "Immediately after the anguish of those days,
the sun will be darkened,
the moon will give no light,
the stars will fall from the sky,
and the powers in the heavens will be shaken.
Matthew 24:15-29 NLT
A simple strategy: Building Blocks
Thank you Jesus for giving us these instructions.
So much to understand. We begin to question when you will return.
We will never know. But having these guidelines will help us.
Please bless us as we desire to be well-prepared for your return.
We Love you LORD.
In you name we pray Jehoshua,
Thank you for leaving your name and your last initial.
We are excited about what God has in all of our futures.
And I'll be back,
I pray you will be too.
