People's Bible Notes for Mark 13:18


Mr 13:18 Pray ye that your flight be not in the winter. Matthew adds, "'neither' on the Sabbath day" (Mt 24:20). The reasons for these admonitions to the Jerusalem church are given in the notes on Matthew. The sign given by the Lord for the flight, the environment of the city by the Romans, and the panic that caused their sudden withdrawal, occurred on Tuesday, in October. Hence the flight was neither in the winter, nor on the Sabbath day.

Discussion for Mark 13

    Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection:Revelations 20:6. There shall be signs in the sun and the moon --- distress of nations with perplexity;--- behold the fig tree and all trees when they bud, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is near.So likewise when you see these things come to pass know ye that the kingdom of God is at hand.Luke 21:25-33
  • Sakana
    Matt 24/Mark 13 deal with the future. Christ showing what it will be like just before 2nd advent. Isaiah 54, Rev14:4, 2 Cor11:2, other places talk about being SPIRITUAL virgins. Not marrying 1st (fake) Christ before the true Christ returns. Don't "give suck" to lies. Not in winter, or not in wrong harvest. Wait for summer and true harvest. "In your patience posses ye your souls." Luke 21:19. Wait.
  • Bruce
    Verses 14,15,16: go together. Our Savior said run, when you see these things taking place,don't even go in the house for a coat!
    We need The Word in our life always. Without the word in our hearts we would listen to foolishness. Satan is a roaring lion seeking whoever! Eternity is before us, which way to go? Matthew 7:13-15.
    Last call Revelations 20:15
  • Bruce
    Matthew 24,Christ told his disciples of the destruction that's coming! When you see it flee quickly! It will be a horrible time. That took place about 40 years later. Given suck means the mothers carrying nursing babies. Just like the Holocaust they were fleeing in the summer in the winter with little kids, nursing babies what a horrible time to be a mom! It's going to happen again in the end time
  • Word
    Vs 17 a woe is spiritually speaking if your one who say your a widow no longer and whored with the antichrist and to give suck means your working in his one world system.
  • Word
    Verse 15 and what's on a house top? A watchman. And why shouldn't he go down? Because the false messiah isn't whom he is waiting for so he is in watch for the true Christ at the 7th trump.
