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.

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."

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."

Most of the time, when the topic is "the end of the world," you hear a lot of speculation about dates and events and meanings. Mark 13 shows us a stiking difference in the way Jesus approached this subject. Instead of speculating about dates, the Lord provided His followers with practical instruction - actions and attitudes that will equip us to face the future He has planned.

As they leave the Temple in Mark 13, the disciples are impressed by its grandeur. Jesus uses this opportunity and challenges them not to get sidetracked with structures of religion - no matter how grand, they will end someday. The focus of our worship is eternal: Jesus Himself.

God's word is infallible, but no individual is an infallible interpreter of the Bible. When scholars and theologians don't agree on what a Biblical text means, how are we to understand it? This introductory study to Mark 13 encourages us to take the right approach, by focusing on the "main and plain" things.

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.

As 1 Thessalonians continues, the Apostle Paul addresses believers' questions about the Judgement Day of the Lord. Rather than charting dates and developing pet theories, the key is knowing who we are in Christ - allowing our identity as "children of light" to influence our actions and the way we live.
