SUNDAY, MARCH 27
Scripture: Luke 21:20-24
Luke 21:20-24 states, “But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation is near. Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let those who are in the midst of her depart, and let not those who are in the country enter her. For these are the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled. But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! For there will be great distress in the land and wrath upon this people. And they will fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away captive into all nations. And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.” Jesus warned that the days of vengeance and the days of wrath and judgment were coming. He warned that the nation would fall by the edge of the sword, people would be led away captive and Jerusalem would be trampled by Gentiles. But there was a harvest coming out of the Gentiles and fullness would dictate that harvest. And here we are. Israel is back in the Holy Land. They have half of Jerusalem under their control, but the other half is Arab. We can still say that Jerusalem is partially trampled. The Gentile harvest is not yet full and it appears the Jews have to gain the whole city. We will see. But one thing is certain – we are in the end-times and marching rapidly toward the last days. Fullness of iniquity is rising throughout the earth. We are living in the season of the winding up of the age and what will we do? Will we do our part? I trust we will!
