The End

Re: Verse readingLuke 21:5-24 (day one)
“The time when come when not one stone (of the temple in Jerusalem) will be left upon another.”  (v 6)  Jesus saw it coming.  Judged by their stubborn rejection of Spiritual truth, Israel would soon be gone.  “All good things must come to an end.”  So says the old proverb.  The Bible affirms the same truth.  We tend to think of nations and families as quasi-permanent.  Hard to imagine a world without America in it, isn’t it?  The scripture shouts a different truth.  Things come to an end.  People.  Churches.  Families.  Careers.  Nations.  And those who have placed their identity and/or confidence in these temporary things are shattered with the fall.  “A voice says , ‘Call out.’  Then he answered, ‘What shall I call out?’  All flesh is grass, and all its loveliness is like the flower of the field. . .the grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of the Lord lasts forever.”  (Isaiah 40:6-8)
