Matthew: Gentle and kind and nice, Jesus is saying some awful things. Jesus is talking about His second coming for which, I hope, we all await eagerly. The bad news is these are ut the “signs” of Jesus’ return. Jesus told us to consider what Daniel has to say (Daniel 9:27). Here we are in the middle of the tribulation. There is a frantic and frenzied beat to Jesus’ words. Take heed.
