There are a lot of people that are clammering that we are in the end times. I can say one thing- we are closer every single day…lol
Seriouly, as I read what Jesus is saying here, there are still things to happen before the BEGINNING of the end is to come. We have nation against nation and wars and rumor of wars, but I have not heard of anyone on a mass scale claiming to be the Messiah. Nor have we had the “abomination of desolation.”
When Jesus tells us to keep watch, it is not to keep watch for his return. Rather, keeping watch means we keep doing the things that he has tasked us to do- feed the hungry, clothe the naked, do justice, seek mercy. That is the best way for us to keep watch.
