EAGERLY WAITING

June 28, 2020 / 1 Thessalonians 5:1-11

 


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 of the end of the age?” And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you…. 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 (ethnos) will rise against nation (ethnos), and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains. – Matthew 24:3-8 (NKJV)

“For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah. …were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, … “Then there will be two men in the field; one will be taken and one will be left. ” Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken and one will be left.  – Matthew 24:37-41 (NASB)
