As we begin a four part study on Jesus’ Olivet Discourse, it’s easy to become curious about the meaning of the prophecies in this passage. We live in uncertain and dangerous times; sometimes, we feel wary about turning on the television or checking the headlines. In all of this upheaval and turmoil in the world, our minds begin to focus on the possibility of the imminent end of the world. We start looking for the signs of the times. This is an age old tendency that even the disciples of Jesus dealt with. But as we learn from this week’s sermon sermon on Mark 13:1-8, there are some dangers that can surround a preoccupation with the end times. Listen to this week’s message to discover three of these dangers, and where our focus should be as we await Christ’s certain second coming.
