Enduring until the end!

Most Midwesterners would agree that this is a particularly long cold winter and are trying to endure til the end, of winter! Matt.24:20 “Pray that your flight may not be in winter, or on the Sabbath day! Could this be a sign that some would perish if these two conditions happen? If it’s summer but on the Sabbath day maybe it is a sign of not keeping the Sabbath Holy by long travel on the Sabbath day which could result in unexpected hardship or correction for not praying enough or having enough zeal to keep it holy. If it happens in winter it could be very perilous. If conditions are like they are this winter in the Midwest many could die in one day if conditions are like they have been recently. Yesterday the high was -8 today it is 33 above a very different day. But tomorrow it is back to a high of 12 degrees Farenheit and Sunday back to -22, so you can see how serious weather could affect brethren trying to flee, as the bible gives a warning to, pray about these conditions. What if both conditions happen at the same time its -22 degrees and its Saturday? Does this mean God is not particularly happy with some of the brethren and decides to test us all right off the bat? Maybe he will allow some tares to at least start the journey, but is testing those he is going to save and those he is going to destroy! Remember God is the only one who knows the day and the hour! He told his son to sit while I(God) makes your enemies your(Jesus) footstool. Ps.110:1  Back to Matt 24:15 the context is to the people directly in a position to see the Abomination of desolation but with CNN news COG people will see this happening on TV and the fleeing is to the 4 corners of the earth. Is.11:11-12 It shall come to pass in that day That the father shall set His hand again the second time To recover the remnant of His people who are left(after the great tribulation) He will set up a banner for the nations, And will assemble the outcast of Israel, And the dispersed of Judah, From the four corners of the earth. Clark’s commentary pg.230 has this to say! “For the hardness of the season, the badness of the roads, the shortness of the days, the length of the nights, will be great impediments to your flight. Neither on the Sabbath day, that you may not raise the indignation of the Jews by traveling on that day, and so suffer that death out of the city which you had endured to escape from within. Besides, on the Sabbath days the Jews not only kept within doors, but the gates of all the cities and towns in every place were kept shut, and barred; so that if their flight should be on the Sabbath, they could not expect admission into any place of security in the land.” I find this informative and insightful. The parable of the two Virgins seems to be the key which is to be ready always, for we do not know when the time will come. So we pray always that we are worthy to escape…
