Matthew 24:4-7

Matthew 24:4-7  (NIV)
4 Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many. 6 You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. 7 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. 

Meaning comes from “Life Application Bible” – “Watch out that no one deceives you.”  The fact is that whenever we look for signs , we become very susceptible to being deceived.  There are many “false prophets” around with counterfeit signs of spiritual power and authority.  The only sure way to keep from being  deceived is to focus on Christ and His Words.  Don’t look for special signs, and don’t spend time looking at other people.  Look at Christ.

I don’t watch the news….. but with everything that is going on in the world, the signs are happening today.   It may not happen in our life time, but it will happen, like the scripture says, we just have to make sure we are prepared!
