Scripture: “No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” Mark 13:32 NIV
Observation: Jesus teaches his disciples about the signs of the end of the age.
Application: Jesus has taught James, John, Peter, and Andrew at length about the signs of the end of the age. Jesus knows and he speaks to the disciples of all of the signs and occurrences that must take place before his return. One would think that he would know the exact time and date and hour of his own return but he clearly states here that only the Father knows. If Jesus doesn’t know when than neither will we. Therefore, we must, “Be on guard! Be alert! You do not know when that time will come.” Mark 13:33 NIV
Prayer: Father, I ask in Jesus’ name for your help in staying prepared for your son’s return. Help me to stay vigilant. Amen
