As The End Approaches

Mark 13:1-37

(Mark 13:34) "For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch."

There are two phases of the Second Coming:

Jesus mentioned many things that were not signs of His return.

QUESTION - What things did Jesus warn are not signs of His coming?

QUESTION - What are the signs that we see in this passage? v24-26 cf Luke 21:25-26; Mt. 24:29-30

QUESTION - What has to happen before Christ's return?

QUESTION - What is the significance of Jesus' imminent return to us, personally?

I. The Authority v34a

II. The Task. V34b

III. The Warning. v34c

IV. The Imminence.

Jesus mentions four things you would do well to remember as the end approaches:

  1. The AUTHORITY that He has placed with His people: The Word of God
  2. The TASK that He has given His people: To Reach the World with the Gospel
  3. The WARNING that He has left with His people: Be Alert and Watchful
  4. The IMMINENCE of His return for His people: He Could Come Today
