Top  Previous  Next

Oct 8 11.5 See the fig and other trees! As they burst into leaves, you yourselves know summer is near. So too, when you see these things, know that He is near. Truly, this generation wont pass away until these things happen. Heaven and earth will pass away, but not my words.”

Only the Father knows the exact day and hour, not even the Son or the heavenly angels do. The coming of the Son of man will be like Noahs day before the flood, when they were eating, drinking, marrying and betrothing, up to the day Noah entered the ark.1 They didnt know until the flood came and swept them away. So will the coming of the Son of man be. Two men will be in the field, one will be taken, the other left. Of two women grinding at the mill, one will be taken, the other left.

Oct 9 Watch and pray for you dont know the time, lest it meets you deeply engrossed in the merriments and anxieties of life. That day will suddenly entrap all on earth. Watch, therefore, for you dont know the day of your Lords coming. Always watch and pray that you may escape all these things and stand before the Son of man.
