From New Living Translation – November 28 – Luke 21:25-36

25 “And there will be strange signs in the sun, moon, and stars. And here on earth the nations

will be in turmoil, perplexed by the roaring seas and strange tides. 26 People will be terrified at

what they see coming upon the earth, for the powers in the heavens will be shaken. 27 Then

everyone will see the Son of Man[a] coming on a cloud with power and great glory.[b] 28 So

when all these things begin to happen, stand and look up, for your salvation is near!” 29 Then he

gave them this illustration: “Notice the fig tree, or any other tree. 30 When the leaves come out,

you know without being told that summer is near. 31 In the same way, when you see all these

things taking place, you can know that the Kingdom of God is near. 32 I tell you the truth, this

generation will not pass from the scene until all these things have taken place. 33 Heaven and

earth will disappear, but my words will never disappear. 34 “Watch out! Don’t let your hearts be

dulled by carousing and drunkenness, and by the worries of this life. Don’t let that day catch you

unaware, 35 like a trap. For that day will come upon everyone living on the earth. 36 Keep alert

at all times. And pray that you might be strong enough to escape these coming horrors and stand

before the Son of Man.”

 

From New Living Translation – November 14 – Mark 13:1-8

1As Jesus was leaving the Temple that day, one of his disciples said, “Teacher, look at these

magnificent buildings! Look at the impressive stones in the walls.” 2 Jesus replied, “Yes, look at

these great buildings. But they will be completely demolished. Not one stone will be left on top

of another!” 3 Later, Jesus sat on the Mount of Olives across the valley from the Temple. Peter,

James, John, and Andrew came to him privately and asked him, 4 “Tell us, when will all this

happen? What sign will show us that these things are about to be fulfilled?” 5 Jesus replied,

“Don’t let anyone mislead you, 6 for many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the

Messiah.’[a] They will deceive many. 7 And you will hear of wars and threats of wars, but don’t

panic. Yes, these things must take place, but the end won’t follow immediately. 8 Nation will go

to war against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in many parts of

the world, as well as famines. But this is only the first of the birth pains, with more to come..
