Message for this week.
As we gather for worship this Sunday, just a week before the end of the church year, the readings focus our attention on the end of time. Daniel writes of, “a time of trouble, such as never has been since there was a nation till that time” (12:1). Before the end there will be natural and man-made disasters throughout the world, but when these things happen (and they certainly have been happening) Jesus says, “Do not be alarmed” (Mark 13:7). Why not? Because “by a single offering [Christ] has perfected for all time those who are being sanctified” and “the one who endures to the end will be saved” (Hebrews 10:14 & Mark 13:13). We know that, “he who promised is faithful” (Hebrews 10:23). The Lord will deliver all who trust in Him and bring them to everlasting life. Thank God!
