2. Speaker

2.1. Tony Huy

3. Stay Awake

3.1. 4 times mentioned

3.2. Romans 13 - night is far spent

4. Ways to stay awake

4.1. Summary

4.1.1. Stay awake - WATCH

4.1.1.1. The point of Mark 13 is not so much to inform as to admonish; not to provide knowledge of arcane matters but to instill obedience in believers. Edwards Jr., James R.. The Gospel according to Mark (The Pillar New Testament Commentary (PNTC)) (Kindle Locations 7311-7312). Eerdmans Publishing Co - A. Kindle Edition.

4.1.1.2. Watching does not mean sitting quietly and passively as you gaze into the skies. It means serving, being diligent to help others, obeying God. Storms, Sam. Kingdom Come: The Amillennial Alternative (Kindle Locations 4663-4664). Christian Focus Publications. Kindle Edition.

4.1.2. What I want to say to you, i say to all

4.1.2.1. This is a message to us all

4.2. Teh point here of stay awake and his return is ...

4.2.1. NOT neccessarily a simple care for self. when will we escape

4.2.2. The point is partially that, but before we are told to perpare to die for our faith

4.2.2.1. ILL: Russian Law

4.2.2.2. Now in Iowa

4.2.2.3. Church

4.2.3. The point is to do what is given us, which weaved through thsi chapter has been the preachign of teh gsopel,t he gathering of the elect.

4.3. Be on guard

4.3.1. Lots of warnings about false techers

4.3.2. Be on guard against that which will keep you awake

4.3.2.1. Great quote in Screwtape letters

4.4. Be faithful in the ordinary

4.4.1. Not in parable of lamp, you can still sleep, but there's a way to sleep and be waiting

4.4.2. "servants in charge" - God has something he has left for you

4.4.3. Matt 24:37-44

4.4.3.1. Eating drinking marraige - not a bad thing

4.4.3.1.1. We don't stop this as we wait. These are the basics of life and just cause the end of history is coming, it does not mean that the most basic things in this life is not important. That's not the point. The point is not getting lost in them.

4.4.3.2. The world will be caught completely off-guard by the coming of Christ. People will be engaged in normal, routine occupations of life: farming, fellowship, marriage, etc. (Cf. Luke 17: 28-30; 1 Thess. 5: 3.). Jesus will come at a time of widespread indifference, normalcy, materialistic endeavors, when everyone is thoroughly involved in the pursuit of their earthly affairs and ambitions (cf. 2 Pet. 3: 3-4, 10). His coming will occur at a time so unexpected, so unannounced, that it will catch people in the middle of their everyday routines (see vv. 40-41). Storms, Sam. Kingdom Come: The Amillennial Alternative (Kindle Locations 4654-4658). Christian Focus Publications. Kindle Edition.

4.4.3.2.1. Jesus will come at a time when his coming is the farthest thing from Jesus will come at a time when his coming is the farthest thing from Storms, Sam. Kingdom Come: The Amillennial Alternative (Kindle Locations 4658-4659). Christian Focus Publications. Kindle Edition.

4.5. Have the right perspective on life

4.5.1. You are a slave, a servant

4.5.2. Is that offensive?

4.5.3. ILL:  MOravian

4.5.4. Would you?

4.5.5. Would it be worth it?

4.5.6. At the end of the day, that's what we bet is it not?

4.6. Trust His word (refer to verse 31 again)

4.6.1. V. 31 seems to be a way of Jesus saying that the world will fail before his words fail, or put another way, his word is more permanent and lasting than the universe. Ben Witherington III. The Gospel of Mark: A Socio-Rhetorical Commentary (Kindle Locations 5245-5246). Kindle Edition.

5. Lament

5.1. Psalm 51

6. The son of man returns

6.1. What does this mean?

6.2. A two fold victory!

7. INtro

7.1. Difficult days are not unheard of

7.1.1. Tacitus on the time

7.1.1.1. Mark wrote his Gospel at a time when the whole world was falling apart— particularly if one was a Jewish Christian. Garland, David E.. Mark (The NIV Application Commentary Book 2) (p. 504). Zondervan. Kindle Edition.

7.1.2. Our time

7.1.3. Russia

7.2. if ou have grown up with a certain eschatological view, you may be at a certain piont in one of these two camps

7.2.1. Numb - so you don't really care much about esch

7.2.2. just all about the already aspect of our aslavation. About the kingdom now. Here. rewewal and reflorusing are words you hear, and at times I will say them

7.3. Danger is we lose the very tone of the new testament

7.4. Acts - what will they await?

7.4.1. Will you now restore the kingdom?

7.4.2. They ware waiting for the kingdom

7.5. and then we have weeks like this week and we undrstand way. Why we wait. Why we long. Why we want. Why we ache.

7.5.1. Because we live in a world where sin is still rampant.

7.5.2. Where brokeness still reigns

7.5.3. Where bondage to hate and anger still exists

8. Technical work

8.1. Show thisis about the 2nd coming

8.2. Why is this brought into the discussion? Ref Matt

8.3. Summarize the chapter and give an outline

9. ONly the father knows

9.1. IMlicaitons about guessing

9.2. What does this mean then about Christ not knowing

10. You told Peter to put back his sword and you restored the one wounded. That’s what we long for. A reprimand to the one who would injure and a healing within the one injured. God of miracles, please do it again. We need you. Our nation needs you. Our leaders need you. Many a home today will not have a loved one returning. Without you we have no hope. With you all things are possible—even for beauty to come out of ashes. We pray for the day of unarmed truth and unconditional love. Please answer our prayer. - RZIM

11. The heart here

12. No sign

13. Expositon

13.1. GENERAL

13.1.1. This started off with asking for a sign, and jesus so answeres - in context to the question. He gives them a sign of the destruction of the tmeple.

13.1.2. But here, he talks of his 2nd return, and for that, tehre are no signs

13.2. 32

13.2.1. how do we know this is about the end?

13.2.1.1. BUT

13.2.1.1.1. Thus, one event was close at hand (Jerusalem’s fall). It would happen within the time span of that generation and would be immediately preceded by the sign of the Abomination of Desolation. The other event (the parousia) would transpire in the future at a time unknown even to the Lord. Storms, Sam. Kingdom Come: The Amillennial Alternative (Kindle Locations 4647-4649). Christian Focus Publications. Kindle Edition.

13.2.1.2. "that day" as compared to "those days" (17,1,20,24)

13.2.1.3. And up to now, all kinds of signs.. signs .. and here no one knows. No sign. Just be ready

13.2.1.4. So step back and give summary outline (on screen?)

13.2.1.4.1. Comment on  - This generation

13.2.2. "the son"

13.2.2.1. Why is he ignorant?

13.2.2.2. Jesus assumes here what mark is trying to show - He is the son of God

13.2.3. main points

13.2.3.1. No apocalyptic calculations beforehand can violate that sovereignty. The end comes without any warning. No one will have time for last-second preparations. Garland, David E.. Mark (The NIV Application Commentary Book 2) (p. 503). Zondervan. Kindle Edition.

13.3. 33

13.4. 34

13.5. 35

13.5.1. Four parts of the night and sleeping

13.5.1.1. This will definitely point to Gethsemane

13.5.1.1.1. As Myers says, it is as if Mark is saying to his own audience, "we all live in a Gethsemane moment in human history; we must not be caught napping like the first disciples were when the crucial moment arrived:'213 Ben Witherington III. The Gospel of Mark: A Socio-Rhetorical Commentary (Kindle Locations 5265-5266). Kindle Edition.

13.6. 36

13.7. 37

13.7.1. i say to all

13.7.1.1. This pregnant statement serves to recall verse 3, where the question which prompted the eschatological discourse was asked privately by Peter, James, John and Andrew. The explicit extension of the exhortation tion to watch to a wider circle, which Mark undoubtedly understood to include the Christians of Rome, suggests that it was Jesus' intention to transcend any distinction between the disciples, to whom he delegated his authority (see on Ch. 6:7), William L. Lane. The Gospel of Mark (Kindle Locations 5074-5076). Kindle Edition.

13.7.2. Stay awake

13.7.2.1. The point is not WATCHFULNESS as i'm purusing the signs and figuring out what's happening, the whole point is FAITHFULNESS to what God has given me to do

13.7.2.2. Each member has "his work" and by completing it he fulfills the obligation to watch. 116 Vigilance is the responsibility of every believer and provides the sole guarantee of preparedness for the Lord's return. William L. Lane. The Gospel of Mark (Kindle Locations 5077-5078). Kindle Edition.

13.7.2.3. Eschatology is not meant to be crippling to missiology, but empowering.

14. Review

14.1. Not the temple but Jesus

15. ILL

16. main pint

16.1. George Orwell wrote in Nineteen Eighty-Four: “If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on the human face— forever.” 53 Jesus also saw the boot, but he assures his disciples that the “forever” part is false. The Son of Man will come and send his angels to gather his elect who have held fast to the end. Despite their suffering, the future belongs to God’s people, because God will intervene in the world to destroy evil forever. Garland, David E.. Mark (The NIV Application Commentary Book 2) (p. 511). Zondervan. Kindle Edition.

17. Gospel moment

17.1. We shed another’s blood when we are without answers. Jesus shed His own blood as our only answer. We kill, buried in despair. Jesus rose, giving us hope. ~ Ravi Zacharias

18. hope

18.1. “But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.” (Philippians 3:20–21, ESV)
