When we consider prophetic passages like Mark 13, it helps to look at large principles instead of zooming in on details. We cannot fully understand God's providence in our daily lives: how much less can we understand His cosmic purposes? The Lord Jesus takes the correct approach by focusing on principles like "God reigns," "Be watchful," and "Have peace."

Confusion about the second coming of Christ provides an opportunity for Christians to be reminded about what the Bible teaches. In 1 Thessalonians 4, Paul wrote to encourage the church with the certain hope that Jesus will return, and that those who are in Christ will be with him forever.

At the end of Mark 13, Jesus tells His disciples that no one knows when His return will be - even He does not know! What then is the purpose of prophecy in the Bible? Knowing that our Lord will certainly return, but not knowing when, motivates us to obey His command, "Stay awake."

One of the most memorable and inspiring scenes in the Bible is the "great multitude that no one could number" in Revelation 7. Looking more deeply at this passage, Alistair Begg explains the relationship between these worshippers gathered before God's throne and the Church's mission to take the Gospel to the whole world.

scripture James

“Faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.” The letter of James is vital reading whenever the believer is tempted to be content with knowledge devoid of action, to cultivate the world’s friendship rather than God’s, and to tolerate disorder and selfish ambition. As we’ll learn, James shows us that the outward display of faith will find its roots in the inward transformation that has already taken place. These studies provide a forceful and timely reminder that our creed must be seen in our conduct and our attitude must display itself in action.

As 1 Thessalonians continues, the Apostle Paul addresses believers' questions about the Judgement Day of the Lord.

The Thessalonian church held a tender place in the heart of the Apostle Paul. In this expositional study of Paul’s letter to the Thessalonians, we see a paradigm for pastoral ministry, emphasizing the life-changing content of the gospel and concerns of Paul’s heart for their healthy spiritual growth. Having established the believers in good Biblical theology, Paul clearly addresses issues of practical Christian behavior -- sexual morality, work, honest living. The doctrinal foundations of the believers’ hope, namely, the resurrection and return of Christ are established. And finally, the principles of healthy corporate life and worship within the local church ...

People are either engrossed by the book of Revelation or want nothing to do with it. To help us understand this mysterious book, we must first come to grips with why and to whom it was written. John’s apocalyptic writing provides a glimpse into the perfected kingdom for all who have placed their faith in Jesus Christ, our perfect King.
