In Matthew 24 Jesus is teaching His disciples about his return. He warns them about people who falsely claim to be Christ, wars, famines and earthquakes that will take place around the time He returns. He says the tribulation and difficulty will increase before His return. Immediately after the tribulation He will return in a mighty way. Those who have rejected Him as Savior and Lord will fear, but those who are of the elect (those who have trusted Him as Savior and Lord) will be gathered by Him. He tells them that there are signs of His return, but no one except the Father knows the day. Therefore, people need to be ready for His return. Lord, help me live with an urgency to tell others of Your blessed Gospel of faith in Jesus that will save them from your just wrath to come.
