Vs. 8, “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in various places, and famines. These are the beginning of birth pains.” The death toll from the earthquake in Turkey is now 279 as I send out this QT. Let’s pray for Turkey and that the Lord would use the Christians who are there as comforters and witnesses in this time of chaos. In this chapter, we have Jesus remind us of the signs of the end of age. We live in a pretty crazy time, though we do not not the hour or day…let us be ready!
