questioning Jesus, Mark 13 ‘but’

6 Sep

today, 6 September we will look again at Mark 13, and ‘watching’: what are we, am I, watching for?

And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

watch for men, people, who hate; endure, watch and endure

14 But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:

what am I, what is Jesus’ close disciples seeing as they sit together facing the temple from the Mont of Olives? … an ‘abomination of desolation’ by, within, the temple…stones are not just upturned and shattered, but they are ‘solo’ alone, shamed, isolated and impure… watch.., these stones will be dust

and.. the end times, end time? When?

But the exact day and hour? No one knows that, not even heaven’s angels, not even the Son. Only the Father. So keep a sharp lookout, for you don’t know the timetable. It’s like a man who takes a trip, leaving home and putting his servants in charge, each assigned a task, and commanding the gatekeeper to stand watch. So, stay at your post, watching. You have no idea when the homeowner is returning, whether evening, midnight, cockcrow, or morning. You don’t want him showing up unannounced, with you asleep on the job. I say it to you, and I’m saying it to all: Stay at your post. Keep watch.”

and …where is my heart as I watch?

Proverbs 3, The Message, speaks on where all hearts, my heart, should rest,

‘No need to panic over alarms or surprises,
or predictions that doomsday’s just around the corner,
Because God will be right there with you;
he’ll keep you safe and sound.’

Nothing, no thing, will harm me, us, no matter how anxious I am… he is right there with me.

Right…, I am right m, for he is there.

He is here.
