Wednesday: Predictions and Sinners

 Happy Happy Wednesday!!  I hope you all have had a great day!   SAT testing for me, but it is all over now :) :) :) :)))))

Onto Wednesday.....


On this Wednesday 2000 years ago......

Please read the following......

Mark 13

 38 As he taught, Jesus said, “Watch out for the teachers of the law. They like to walk around in flowing robes and be greeted in the marketplaces, 39and have the most important seats in the synagogues and the places of honor at banquets. 40 They devour widows’ houses and for a show make lengthy prayers. Such men will be punished most severely.”

Mark 14

14 “When you see ‘the abomination that causes desolation’[a] standing where it[b] does not belong—let the reader understand—then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. 15 Let no one on the roof of his house go down or enter the house to take anything out. 16 Let no one in the field go back to get his cloak. 17 How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers! 18 Pray that this will not take place in winter, 19 because those will be days of distress unequaled from the beginning, when God created the world, until now—and never to be equaled again. 20 If the Lord had not cut short those days, no one would survive. But for the sake of the elect, whom he has chosen, he has shortened them.21 At that time if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ[c]!’ or, ‘Look, there he is!’ do not believe it. 22 For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform signs and miracles to deceive the elect—if that were possible. 23 So be on your guard; I have told you everything ahead of time.
24 “But in those days, following that distress,
   “‘the sun will be darkened,
   and the moon will not give its light;
25 the stars will fall from the sky, 
   and the heavenly bodies will be shaken.’[d]

First of all, he talks about the teachers of law trying to seem very important.  And holy.  And  everything in between.  These teachers were as much of a sinner as a murderer.  The way they flaunt themselves around taking important seats and "devouring widows houses" disgusted Jesus and disgusts me too.  Jesus called them hypocrites and snakes and he had every right too.  He was also teaching this to a crowd of people.  A crowd of people who probably supported and looked up to the priests but also probably didn't like them.  So this probably spread like wildfire, and only made the priests dislike him [ttttttttttttttttttttttttttthhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiissssssssssssssssssss] much more. And helped his chances of getting killed.  Ouch.  Jesus also spoke to his disciples in Mark 14 about the end of the age.  I only posted a portion of it here, but you can check the rest of it out in Mark 14. Jesus mourns Jerusalem's destruction and is pending destruction for them.  But on top of all this heavy stuff, he still knows that at that time tomorrow, he will be betrayed after praying so hard DROPS OF BLOOD roll down his face.  Not only is Jerusalem pending destruction but so is he.  And the disciples barely know anything.  And they are trying to take this all in: stars falling from the sky?  The sun will be dark????

And Thursday will be a big day indeed..... but not as big as Friday......... :)

Until tomorrow dear friends..........
