Verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. “The stone that the builders rejected, has become the head of the corner.” “He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.”
Something for us to consider, as our time each day, is that much closer to the return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We are told in the Bible, “Jesus is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature.” Why is it that we all need to be born again? Who are the builders? What are the stones? What did the builders reject? Why is Jesus rejected of men? “But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” So who is the god of this world, if Jesus is the image of the invisible God? Why did Jesus say that we are of our father the devil? See what angels desire to look into.
A Scripture Reading, Unto The End…
“And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.”
“For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.”
“Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.”
