Bible commentary

Discussion for Mark 13:36

  • Pastor Stephen W. PYle for verse 36
    Dearly Beloved: Once again I'm selecting a topic for tommorrow's message at my church. The topic is:"lest He find us sleeping". The Bible speaks that we should awake and be alert at all times. There are times when fatigue and other factors cause us to sleep! The Holy Spirit is able to awaken us! He will come as a "thief in the night". In Gethsamane Jesus asked Peter, James and John why they could not tarry one hour?

    The world has fallen in a deep Satanic induced sleep and have forgotten The Lord's exhortation to "Watch" and "Pray" lest ye enter into temptation! Some just don't want to hear a preacher tell them to "wake up".
