Daily Bible Reading “Nobody Knows the Hour of His Coming” (Matthew 24:36-51)

Matthew 24 36Nobody Knows the Hour of His Coming

Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Matthew 24:36-51. In this Scripture Jesus tells them no man, not even the angels in heaven know when He’ll come again. He says, only His Father in heaven knows when He’ll return.

Jesus tells them it will be the same as when Noah was building the ark: people were going about their normal daily activities with no idea when the flood was coming.

Jesus reminds us to watch for Him, since we don’t know when He is coming. Jesus tells them stories of examples where people were caught unaware, because they weren’t watching for Him.

Galatians 6:9 says, “And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.” This is the same thing Jesus is trying to warn us about in this Scripture.

 

Daily Bible Reading:

Matthew 24:36-51

36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.
48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;
49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;
50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

 

Things to think about:

  • Are you watching for the coming of the Lord?
  • Are you ready for Jesus’ coming?
  • Who does Jesus say knows the time of His coming?

 

Prayer of the Day:

Dear Heavenly Father,

Please help us to always be watching for Your coming, so we won’t be caught unaware. Thank You for this Scripture that tells us to be on watch. We love You, Lord. Amen.

Daily Bible Reading “Jesus Talks about the End of Time” (Matthew 24:1-35)

Jesus Talks about the End of Time

Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Matthew 24:1-35. In this Scripture, Jesus left the temple and His disciples came and wanted to show Him the buildings of the temple. Jesus tells them not one of the stones will be left intact; they’ll all be thrown down. Was He speaking literally?

Jesus went to sit on the Mount of Olives, and the disciples came to Him asking Him what the signs of His coming and the end of the world would be. Jesus warns them there will be many who will come claiming to be Him, but warns them not to be deceived. We have to be careful who we listen to. It is good for us to read our Bible, so we can know the truth for ourselves.

Jesus tells them there will be wars and nations will rise against nations, there will be famines, pests, and earthquakes. Does any of this sound familiar? Jesus tells them there will be persecutions, and people will turn against one another. Jesus compares these happenings to the labor a woman goes through when she is having a baby. The pains will get stronger and stronger until the baby is birthed.

Jesus says the gospel will be preached to all nations, and then the end will come. In Matthew 24:27-35 He tells them what will happen.

Jesus compares His coming to the fig tree and reminds us to watch for the signs. When we see these things happening Jesus is talking about we’ll know the time is drawing near. We are to watch and be ready for His appearing.

I know these Scriptures are heavy, but I want to encourage you to keep the faith, and anxiously await the coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

If you haven’t accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, I encourage you to do it before it is too late. God loves you, and it isn’t His will that any should perish.

 

Daily Bible Reading:

Matthew 24:1-35

1 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.
2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.
10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)
16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:
17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:
18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.
19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:
21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.
23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.
24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
25 Behold, I have told you before.
26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.
27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:
33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

 

Things to think about:

  • What did Jesus tell the disciples about the temple?
  • What did Jesus say for us to take heed to?
  • What did Jesus say about the gospel of the kingdom?
  • What is the significance of the fig tree?

 

Prayer of the Day:

Dear Heavenly Father,

As we read this Scripture, where Jesus tells the disciples about the end of time, help us not to be deceived. Help us to discern the truth. Help us to keep the faith. These are troubled times we read about and we need Your help to get through them. Help us to look forward to the day when we see the Son of Man coming in the clouds. In Jesus’ name, we pray. We love You, LORD. Amen.
