Like pregnancy, the great anguish means you are nearing a time of great joy.
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
Matthew 24:21 - For there will be greater anguish than at any time since the world began. And it will never be so great again.
Read - Matthew 24:1–51; Mark 13:1–37; Luke 21:5–38 - Part 2
Jesus promises His return ‘coming in the clouds’ and prepares us not to fall into the hands of false messiah’s who will deceive many. You won’t be able to miss it and won’t need to hear about it on the news…when Jesus comes the whole world will be informed in the blink of an eye.
Lord, I will wait for Your sure return.

Our faith in Christ will become sight when He returns. Those who Know Him and are Mended by Jesus great sacrifice will be eternally saved and rewarded for their faithfulness by forever Marvelling in the Majesty of Holy God. Those who are deceived by the Enemy will remain Marred by the Sin that held them in life as they suffer in an eternal Meaningless Misery apart from God and all that is good. The stakes are high and irrefutable. We share Christ to help all have the opportunity to receive the Gospel.
