And Jesus [said] to them . . . “When you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be alarmed . . . For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in various places; there will be famines. These are but the beginning of the birth pains”
Birth pains come on slowly and elevate up until the time of the actual birth. We are to be vigilant to these things, what follows is our glorious Savior coming through the clouds. Many generations have claimed their time reflected the warnings in the Bible. If they could only see how the world would devolve to today. God is the only who knows the day and the hour. Until that day our mission is fulfilling the ‘Great Commission’ to spread the ‘Good News’ regarding Jesus.
