Mark – Chapter 13


No One Knows the Day or Hour

32 “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. 33 Take heed, watch and pray; for you do not know when the time is. 34 It is like a man going to a far country, who left his house and gave authority to his servants, and to each his work, and commanded the doorkeeper to watch. 35 Watch therefore, for you do not know when the master of the house is coming—in the evening, at midnight, at the crowing of the rooster, or in the morning— 36lest, coming suddenly, he find you sleeping. 37 And what I say to you, I say to all: Watch!”

Jesus mentioned about the Sign of the time and the End of the age, as well as the Great Tribulation. He warned us and gave us hint to look after to. I shall say that many of the hints ans signs have already been fulfilled and is happening now! The most important thing is not to spend all your time speculating and wondering when will The Time come, like many other people do where they just merely focus on predicting the time….

The most important thing is What WE should do since Jesus has already told us so! Jesus warned us that it may come anytime and even the Son of God did not know the time! So why are we people even bother to predict and speculate when it’s The Time coming when Jesus himself (Son of God) do not know??!

Let us focus on something that really matter the most, something that will help us to prepare ourselves for that moment before it is TOO LATE!

#So what can WE do?? (just my opinion for what i should do)

1) MEDITATING the WORDS & UNDERSTAND what GOD want us to do.

2) Of Course… DOING it!

Just as James 1:22 said ” Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.”

With that, you need Consistency, Self-Discipline and a Passion for the Word.

3) Persevere and Stand Firm!!

3) The Ultimate Mission for Christians on earth – – – – Share the GOSPEL!! and bring people back to God’s Embrace where their soul shall be saved!

    in verse 34, It is like a man going to a far country, who left his house and gave authority to his servants, and to each his work, and commanded the doorkeeper to watch.
    what does it mean by going to a far country and left his house and gave authority to his servants? does it mean that He actually gave us authority and now is far from us?He will only know what had gone through in this earth when He return??I find this illusion weird in this way.Does God has another meaning in the going to a far country?

    It’s actually a very simple illustration sis, Don’t take it too complicated.

    God gave us Authority as the Ruler of Earth to take charge of this world, the animal,plant, and what not just like how HE mandated to Adam in the very Beginning.

    “Going to a far country” is like Jesus resurrected from the Earth back to the Kingdom of God. It means HE is away to Heaven (symbolizes by ‘far country’). And before Jesus left HE has instructed HIS disciples on what should they do and they should help HIM to watch over the ministry HE left behind.

    He is Omnipotent, Omniscient & Omnipresent! He is Almighty, Al knowing & Everywhere! He doesn’t have to be back to EARTH (literally) in order to find out what happen. HE knows EVERYTHING from UP there!

    In verse 35, it mentioned “Watch therefore, for you do not know when the master of the house is coming” illustrates that Jesus (‘the Master’) will come back to Earth (‘house’) once again! The second coming! That’s why HE ask us to be alert of that and take precautions always! (illustrated by “commanded the doorkeeper to watch”).

    Hope you see it clearer now.. Or even more confusing? haha…
