Why We Need The Wilderness (Deuteronomy 8)

Moses is in the midst of a sermon to Israel as they are just a few weeks from crossing into the promised land. Moses is expounding on the law (1:5) preparing them for what they need to know for success and life in the promised land. In this sermon Moses has reminded them that the Lord desires that his people love him with all their being and resources (6:5-6) and they were to teach their children this every moment they had (6:7-25). Further, when they enter the land they were to remember that they were chosen, not because of their size, but because God chose to love them (7:7-8). As we come into chapter 8 Moses again tells the people to be careful to do everything commanded this day so that they will have life in the land. But now Moses is going to explain why the Lord made Israel go through the great and terrifying wilderness (1:19, 2:7).

Is This The End? (Mark 13)

End times fears and excitement seem to ignite in every generation. In the late 1990s the Left Behind books released causing a renewed fervor about the nearness of the end of the world. The year 2000 was a major point when people thought the end of the world would certainly come. The Mayan calendar declared the end of the world to be in 2012. The Jehovah’s Witnesses proclaimed the end of the world in 1914, 1918, 1925, 1940s, 1975, 2000, when the generation of 1914 passes away, and now 2033. Hysteria seems to always be centered on when the end of the world will come and the various predictions that come. Often these predictions come from reading Mark 13, or the parallel passages Matthew 24 and Luke 21. So we are going to carefully read this chapter and look for what Jesus is teaching and what we should understand as followers of Christ.
