The end of the age? Welcome to a new age?

I have avoided writing about the end of the age. Too many people get the idea that the end is coming anyway, so there’s nothing we can do. But now I feel lead to challenge that stinkin’ thinkin’.

Click link and read Matthew 24 and the notes to its right.

Verse 3
His disciples ask Jesus a three-part question:
1. When will the temple we are looking at be destroyed?
2. What will be the sign indicating you are coming back?
3. What will be the sign indicating the end of the age?

Verses 4-8
Even though Jesus’ Kingdom has come, it is in the womb. Utopia has not come yet. There will be birth pains ushering in the new age, the real new age.

Verse 9-12
It may have been a comfortable walk with Jesus up until now. Now count your blessings–Matthew 5:10-12. [Right click to a new tab.]

Verse 13
Heb 4:12. Stand firm moment by moment, by looking up, receiving the power from the Almighty. Romans 8:35-39.

Verse 14
I believe this has been fulfilled, but there are missionaries diligently translating the gospel into every local language they encounter.

Verse 15
Read Daniel 9:27, 11:31, 12:11, in context.

Verses 16-28
Intense labor pains. Eph 6:10-18; 2 Cor 10:4; Rev 12:11.

Verse 22
Don’t miss the words, “no one would survive.” This is not a PG movie. This gets down and ugly, really. But see Psalm 46.

Jesus does not suggest to his disciples that the faithful will not be present. Rev 3:21, 7:3, 17:14. We find comfort in that God will be with us through it all.

Verse 29
The creator and sustainer of this vast universe, down to the amazing intricacies of our DNA, begins closing it down.

Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty! Blessed be his name.

Verse 30
At last, the sign of his coming!

The lost will mourn–they realize they have gambled away their inheritance; tragically they rejected their Father’s love.

Verse 31

Verses 32-35
At last, the sign of the end of the age, with verse 29 suggesting a link to Jesus coming.

Verses 37-41
Pre-trib, mid-trib, or post-trib rapture?
You can figure out sequence in end times yourself, rathen than taking someone’s word.

Ask yourself, “Who was ‘taken’ in the days of Noah.”
Then ask yourself, “Who was ‘left’ in the days of Noah.”

Also see who are ‘left’ according to 1 Thes 4:15-17.
How does this work out with the first resurrection? See Rev 20:4-5.

Verse 44
Harold Camping, is this verse in your bible?

Verse 45-51
Being a faithful servant, prepared materially and spiritually.
