 Signs






“As he was leaving the temple, one of his disciples said to him,


“Look, Teacher! What massive stones! What magnificent buildings!”


“Do you see all these great buildings?” replied Jesus. “Not one stone


here will be left on another; every one will be thrown down.”


Mark 13: 1 & 2 NIV


 


 


Not one stone left on the sign of our strength…


Now that would be devastating.


If it were clearly predicted at length,


You’d want to know when…not waiting.


 


Birth pangs are what we must experience


To get to something wonderful.


Cruel persecutions will increase – hence


We need to proclaim the Gospel.


 


‘Though we’re uncomfortable, God’s with us.


No winging it…prepare to tell


His love, His mercy, His Grace to profess,


Hoping to save others from hell.


 


Prophecies have near and far fulfillment.


Some point to the tribulation.


Where will you be when this trouble is sent?


It’s urgent to tell all nations.


 


Christ’s return…complete joy for God’s people…


Doom for those who do not believe…


Means I must love others as my equal


If  I His “well done” would receive.


 


“But as for me, I watch in hope for the Lord. I wait for God


my Savior; my God will hear me.”


Micah 7:7  NIV
