“Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places; these are beginning of birth pains.” Mark 13:8
Our generation has lived to see these predicted events, but I believe since God is merciful, that He is allowing people extra time to obey His command to repent of their sins and trust Him for salvation. Although God is patient, His Spirit can be grieved.
Prayer thought: I believe in His mercy God is using these events as wake-up calls to His sinful people. But how much longer will He wait for people to obey this invitation of Jesus? “Come to me all you who are weary and are heavy laden and I will give you rest…For my yoke is easy and my burden light.”
