In Mark 13:1-2, Jesus speaks about the destruction of the Temple. In Mark 13:7, He speaks about “the end.” There are events which point us to the end. These events make us think about the end. There’s another “end” that we must think about – “the person who endures to the end will be saved” (Mark 13:13). This is our own personal end. Beyond our personal end, there is the end which comes with the Return of our Lord Jesus Christ (Mark 13:26-27). When will He come? – “No one knows when that day or hour will come” (Mark 13:32). What the Lord does tell us is this: Make sure that you’re ready – “I’m telling everyone what I’m telling you. Be alert!”
