WATCH AND ENDURE- Tonight at Crossfire, Pastor Paris Ragan reads Mark 13:9-13 & 33-37. The Holy Spirit is inspiring Mark to write here how Jesus was definitely the suffering Messiah, and he makes it clear that the Messiah, according to the Old Testament, was supposed to suffer. Christ would have to suffer in order to accomplish the work that He had come to do. He’s the savior; He’s the one that’s come to save. He’s the powerful, anointed king that has come to deliver fallen man. Pastor Paris says we must be on watch, not to lose our soul; sometimes is not an obvious blowout, but a slow leak. We must guard our minds. We can’t just float through Christianity. It’s not possible. We are either drawing close to Him or we are drawing backwards. There is no in between. We must maintain the order of this great salvation God has given us.
