This is a Blog for those interested in following hard after His heart. Those willing to strive to live a moment by moment life as we go through the transformation process with Him. It is not an easy life but the Father expects each of us to become an offering for His pleasure. So, if this is you, then let’s journey together hand in hand. I am humbled that you have chosen to walk with me. Thanks!

Study 27 From the Book of Mark
is: Mark 13:1-23
1.Verses 1-13. Notice how Christ translates the abstract
enquiry of His disciples into the personal and moral realm. How can we prepare
ourselves to meet similar dangers?
2.Verses 14-23. What is here
foretold? How are Christ’s followers to act when it happens? To whom are they
to look for deliverance? Of what are they to beware? What may we learn from
such a passage concerning God’s sovereignty and man’s responsibility?
1.Verse 14. ‘The desolating sacrilege’:
this is the sign of the impending destruction of the Temple for which the
disciples had asked (verse 1-4). It
refers to the desecration of the holy place by Roman invaders. Cf. Dn. 11:31.
2.Verses 15. ‘Him who is on the
housetop’: the flat roofs of houses in Palestine were used for places of rest
and social intercourse. Cf. Acts 10:9.
