From Mark Mallett: The Black Ship – Part II

The Black Ship – Part II

WARS and rumors of wars… And yet, Jesus said these would only be “the beginning of the birth-pangs.” [1] What, then, could possibly be the hard labor? Jesus answers:
Then they will deliver you up to tribulation, and put you to death; and you will be hated by all nations for my name’s sake. And then many will fall away, and betray one another, and hate one another. And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. (Matt 24:9-11)
Yes, the violent death of the body is a travesty, but the death of the soul is a tragedy. The hard labor is the great spiritual struggle that is here and coming…
1. cf. Matt 24:8
