While some people were speaking about how the temple was adorned with costly stones and votive offerings, Jesus said, “All that you see here–the days will come when there will not be left a stone upon another stone that will not be thrown down.”
Then they asked him, “Teacher, when will this happen? And what sign will there be when all these things are about to happen?” He answered, “See that you not be deceived, for many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am he,’ and ‘The time has come.’ Do not follow them! When you hear of wars and insurrections, do not be terrified; for such things must happen first, but it will not immediately be the end.” Then he said to them, “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be powerful earthquakes, famines, and plagues from place to place; and awesome sights and mighty signs will come from the sky.”
There are many in the world saying that the end times are here. Jesus tells us not to follow them, because they do not know the hour or day. Follow only the Lord, He will see you through whatever happens, if you will only trust in Him.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, may I keep on the path that you have for me, following you and loving you. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen.
The Lord comes to judge the earth.
