Jesus, in beginning to answer the disciples’ question (Mark 13:4Mark 13:4
English: World English Bible - WEB

4 “Tell us, when will these things be? What is the sign that these things are all about to be fulfilled?”

), first warns them:

He also tells them that nation will rise against nation, and speaks of earthquakes and famines. (Mark 13:8Mark 13:8
English: World English Bible - WEB

8 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in various places. There will be famines and troubles. These things are the beginning of birth pains.

Jesus doesn’t paint a very pretty picture, does he. But when we think about it, don’t we already have those things? Haven’t we always?

It seems that yes, we do, and yes, we have. And that’s Jesus’ point. In Mark 13:7Mark 13:7
English: World English Bible - WEB

7 “When you hear of wars and rumors of wars, don’t be troubled. For those must happen, but the end is not yet.

Jesus says, “such things must happen, but the end is still to come.”

What Jesus is telling us is:

  1. Don’t be deceived (Mark 13:5Mark 13:5
    English: World English Bible - WEB

    5 Jesus, answering, began to tell them, “Be careful that no one leads you astray.

  2. Don’t be alarmed (Mark 13:7Mark 13:7

Zig Ziglar says that every morning he reads the newspaper and the Bible. That’s so he’ll know what both sides are up to. Profound wisdom is found in Zig’s humor.

We can find the secret to Jesus’ commands that we not be deceived nor alarmed through Bible study.

Now we know what to do, but the hard part is how do we do it? Bible Study Fellowship (BSF) taught me how to study the Bible. BSF classes are meeting weekly all over the world! We’re currently studying the Gospel of John. In September, 2010, we’ll begin a brand-new study in the prophetic Old Testament book of Isaiah. What better way to protect yourself from deception, and to never be alarmed again.

Go to the BSF web site and find a class near you. Contact the Class Administrator using the online form and ask when you can attend the next introductory class. Then go, and get acquainted with your new Bible study friends as you join in on the study of John’s Gospel and then enroll for the Isaiah study.
