Week of 12/31 - 1/4 (B1;19)
Matthew 24:1-14 (NKJV)
Then Jesus went out and departed from the temple, and His
disciples came up to show Him the buildings of the temple.
And Jesus said to them, "Do you not see all these things?
Assuredly, I say to you, not one stone shall be left here
upon another, that shall not be thrown down."
Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came
to Him privately, saying, "Tell us, when will these things be?
And what will be the sign of Your coming, and the end of
And Jesus answered and said to them: "Take heed that no
one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying,
'I am the Christ,' and will deceive many. And you will hear
of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled;
for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not
yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against
kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earth-
quakes in various places. All these things are the beginning
Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and
you will be hated by all nations for My name's sake. And
then many will be offended, will betray one another, and
will hate one another. Then many false prophets will rise
up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will
abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who
endures to the end shall be saved. And this gospel of
the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness
to all the nations, and then the end will come."
Lord, THANK YOU for revealing crucial Truths to the world living
in the very last of days. Thank You for the protective Counsel You so
graciously give as a result of Your loving care for humanity. Thank
You for warning us as You have. Please help us rightly understand
Your pertinent insights whereby we not only safely navigate these
end-time waters but also shine on Your behalf to a world still
needing Your salvation through Your dear Son, Jesus Christ. It's
in His name we pray, amen.
Week of 1/7-11 (B2;19)
Matthew 24:15-31 (NKJV)
Therefore when you see the 'abomination of desolation,' spoken
of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place" (whoever
reads, let him understand), "then let those who are in Judea
flee to the mountains. Let him who is on the housetop not go
down to take anything out of his house. And let him who is in
the field not go back to get his clothes. But woe to those who
are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days!
And pray that your flight may not be in winter or on the Sabbath.
For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been
since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever
shall be. And unless those days were shortened, no flesh
would be saved; but for the elect's sake those days will be
Then if anyone says to you, 'Look, here is the Christ!' or
'There!' do not believe it. For false christs and false prophets
will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if
possible, even the elect. See, I have told you beforehand.
Therefore if they say to you, 'Look, He is in the desert!' do
not go out; or 'Look, He is in the inner rooms!' do not
believe it. For as the lightning comes from the east and
flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of
Man be. For wherever the carcass is, there the eagles
will be gathered together.
Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun
will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light;
the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the
heavens will be shaken.
Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven,
and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they
will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven
with power and great glory. And He will send His angels
with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather
together His elect from the four winds, from one end
of heaven to the other.
Lord God, even so, please COME Lord Jesus! AMEN
Week of 1/14-18 (B3;19)
Matthew 24:32-44 (NKJV)
Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has
already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that
summer is near. So you also, when you see all these things,
know that it is near - at the doors! Assuredly, I say to you, this
generation will be no means pass away till all these things take
place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by
no means pass away.
But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of
heaven, but My Father only. But as the days of Noah were, so
also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days
before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and
giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark,
and did not know until the flood came and took them all away,
so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. Then two will
be in the field: one will be taken and the other left. Two
women will be grinding at the mill: one will be taken and the
other left. Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour
your Lord is coming. But know this, that if the master of the
house had known what hour the thief would come, he would
have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into.
Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming
at an hour you do not expect. [ omission ours ]
Father God, please help us to be ready as Your Word so
outlines, NOT as some incorrect end-time teachings (which
contribute to ill-preparedness) so danerously promote through
their faulty, unbiblical positions. Help us discern end-time views
which do not faithfully represent Your Truth. Please help us
apply wisdom by going to Your Word for strength for today
and bright hope for tomorrow. Because You are faithful to
Your Word, may Your Spirit lead us in walk of humility as
we seek to honor You in these days before Your Son's
precious appearing. As in the days of Lot, so will be Your
return. Take us out of this dark earth, dear Lord, we pray.
Until then precious Father, help us be Your loving lights,
beacons of Truth to a dark world. In Jesus Christ's name
we pray, amen.
Week of 1/21-25 (B4;19)
Matthew 24:45-51 (NKJV)
Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his master
made ruler over his household, to give them food in due
season? Blessed is that servant whom his master, when
he comes, will find so doing. Assuredly, I say to you that
he will make him ruler over all his goods. But if that evil
servant says in his heart, 'My master is delaying his coming,'
and begins to beat his fellow servants, and to eat and
drink with the drunkards, the master of that servant will
come on a day when he is not looking for him and at an
hour that he is not aware of, and will cut him in two and
appoint him his portion with the hypocrites. There shall
be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Lord: HELP, please! We so quickly embrace compromise
today but Your Word speaks to the dangers therein - some
even bringing eternal consequence! May we rightly divide
Your Word by affirming what You've said. And THANK YOU
once again for Your precious Holy Spirit who guides us as
He indwells. Blessed be Your holy name YHVH God. In
Jesus Christ's - Your Son's - dear name we pray.
Week of 1/28 - 2/1 (B5;19)
John 16:1-4, 33 (NKJV)
These things I have spoken to you, that you should not be
made to stumble. They will put you out of the synagogues;
yes, the time is coming that whoever kills you will think that
he offers God service. And these things they will do to you
because they have not known the Father nor Me. But these
things I have told you, that when the time comes, you may
remember that I told you of them. And these things I did
not say to you at the beginning, because I was with you. ...
These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may
have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but
be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.
LORD Jesus, as one with the Father, You express sweet
Counsel toward our enduring to the end. May Your Church
nurture enduring faith perspective so as to endure the trouble
ahead, end-time trouble which You have clearly outlined will
be directed against Your people. Lord Jesus, have mercy on
us, we pray. With a view of perseverance resolve, Lord, may
we count it all joy as we partake in the sufferings of Christ.
Thank You for Your resources - including Your precious Holy
Spirit - to live in this victorious mindset, dear precious
