The past few weeks I've been reading the Gospel of Mark (my favorite book in the Bible), and on my third re-reading, I finally wrote down my notes and questions. Two days ago, I started Mark 13 and it surprised me that it was about the end-times* which I was studying online via Daniel11Truth.com and September2015.com the past few days. Do visit the websites, read with an open mind, and do your own research. (*I shouldn't be surprised at all coz it's my 3rd re-reading already but I was so focused on the previous chapters that I totally forgot what chapter 13 was about!)
Anyway, I finally finished chapter 13 today, and while I was able to understand of what was mostly written there, I was confused about the "abomination of desolation" which was spoken about in Daniel 11 too. I decided to research and found out that most Daniel 11 interpretations believe that events mentioned in this chapter happened in the past. That it doesn't talk about the present nor the future, or about end-times. So I went back to Daniel11Truth.com and re-read the pertinent posts, and eventually came across the website's stand-alone article titled Salvation to Maturity: a simple guide.
The past few days I've been struggling with my temper and I was really questioning myself why I can't be more Christ-like and use uplifting words? I have faith right? Then why can't my faith overcome the sins of my flesh? :( I was incredibly down about this today so I was really grateful that the Lord sent the Salvation article my way. It answered my questions of why I'm struggling being Christ-like, and when I'll be truly like Christ in actions and words. The article is also a good read for those looking on how to be saved, and how to nurture your faith so it could grow and bear good fruit.
