Raise Your Heads… Your Redemption Is Drawing Near – Luke 21:5-38

Published March 31, 2014 by Ray Bell in Next Sunday

James Krieg will be preaching this Sunday from this chapter where Jesus foretells the coming destruction of Jerusalem and the coming of the Son of Man. He writes,

“Just days before his crucifixion, Jesus speaks to his disciples about an event within their lifetimes that will, in a starkly visible way, mark the end of the old age and the advancement of the new: the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple in 70AD. Yet he not only predicts it, but lovingly prepares them for it, enabling them to face it with a confidence that He will be with them as the risen, exalted King of Kings who rules the nations with an iron sceptre, and they will serve as as his ambassadors. How should we respond when the world seems to be crashing down around us, and as believers we face increasing ostracisation and hostility? Where is our confidence and assurance when the nations rage and kingdoms clash, and we feel like mere ‘collateral damage’? Jesus calls his disciples and us to an implicit trust in him as the Son of Man who rules all things, to his Father’s glory.”
