At Any Moment
Mark 13:7-8 (KJB) And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet. 8 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.
Jesus gave mankind a warning about an unraveling of events to come in the future. Not to trouble man but to calm unnecessary fears as they learn to place their faith securely in Him.
Jesus spoke of wars, and reports of potential rising threats of conflict and events to come to pass as the world waned closer and closer to the end.
Jesus said nations would be in conflict with other nations as once peaceful times would give way to upheaval in both relationships between ruling authorities and governments and in patterns of adverse weather, shortages of food, as man faces avenues of great sorrow and trouble.
Some would say many of these events have already swung in motion as the earth groans and wanes old and many conflicts have reared their ugly head.
Others believe that these hard times yet to come.
One thing is for sure- the men and women of God must be ready for both troubles and the return of Jesus Christ at any moment. No prophecy to be fulfilled prior to His return to this earth for His own saints. He could appear at any moment.
