The End is Nigh

But while they were all marveling at everything he was doing, Jesus said to his disciples, Let these words sink into your ears: The Son of Man is about to be delivered into the hands of men. But they did not understand this saying, and it was concealed from them, so that they might not perceive it. Luke 9:43 ESV

Jesus told His disciples, Let these words sink into your ears: The Son of Man is about to be delivered into the hands of men., but they did not understand it. Even though this was a very clear statement, they were convinced that Jesus was going to be the next king and deliver Israel from the Roman occupiers.

HIs disciples were filled with wonder at everything that He was doing and were completely blind to what was soon coming. They had it wrong. Jesus was handed over to the Romans and crucified, but resurrected Himself on the third day. The disciples did not understand how or why, but it worked out anyway.

I had so many questions when I really began seeking the Lord and studying the Bible in depth. I was confused about so many things, the rapture, pre-tribulation, mid-tribulation, post-tribulation, the millennium. My wall was covered with charts and timelines as I tried to work it all out. I concentrated most of my Bible study in Revelation, Daniel and Matthew 24. My room was beginning to look like a scene from A Beautiful Mind.

One Sunday morning, the Lord spoke to me through a visiting speaker that I had never met. I knew that it was God speaking and I was burning and tingling all over. He called me up in front of the church and said, "Son, you don't need all the things to fit. Just allow your purpose and Mine to knit. And don't be so concerned about the end of the book, go back to the beginning and take another look". It changed my outlook, my focus, and my life became much simpler. Now I let Him worry about it.

Know today that you do not need to worry about how all of this fits together or how it is going to work out. You do not have to understand it all. Just let your purpose align with God and let Him take care of the details. He has a better view up there than we do, and if it matters, He will tell you. We have a job to do while we are here. Let us focus on that.
