When Christ told His followers that the destruction of the temple would be a sign of His return, they were understandably curious. Knowing that they would be tempted to fixate on foretold signs and wonders, Jesus reminded the disciples that they should not panic, but prepare for His second coming. Alistair Begg encourages us to do likewise: when we live faithfully in this present age, longing to see Jesus face-to-face, we bring great joy to our Savior.
8And he said, “See that you are not led astray. For many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am he!’ and, ‘The time is at hand!’ Do not go after them.
