Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.
[Mark 13:31 NET]
The Christian need never fear any calamities or judgements that can possibly come.
Our Lord here foretells great destructions and troubles that would come upon the country. But He told His disciples not to be afraid. No harm should come to them. They were only to take heed not to be led astray. If they would continue faithful, they should be kept in perfect peace through all the perils. “He that shall endure to the end, the same shall be saved.”
History tells us that when the terrible calamity came upon Jerusalem no Christians perished in the awful destruction, because they had been forewarned of the coming disaster and had obeyed their Master’s command, all leaving the doomed city before the siege began, and finding safe refuge.
Always those who believe in Christ and obey His word are safe in any danger. Though the earth itself should be destroyed, God’s children are safe in His love, from which nothing can separate them.
