11 2. Don’t Be Afraid 7 “When you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be frightened; those things must take place; but that is not yet the end. 8 For nation will rise up against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; there will be earthquakes in various places; there will also be famines. These things are merely the beginning of birth pangs.” (Mark 13:7-8) 7 “When you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be frightened; those things must take place; but that is not yet the end. 8 For nation will rise up against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; there will be earthquakes in various places; there will also be famines.

12 2. Don’t Be Afraid “We may think that the imagery of ‘birth pains’ contradicts Jesus’ statement that the time of His coming is unknown (24:36), since such pains signify the imminent birth of a baby. But the metaphor of ‘birth pains’ is used to highlight a different facet of the prenatal process, that the onset of childbirth is not steady but is a repeated phenomenon, coming in waves over and over again. The baby does not come on the first pang, but once the pains begin, all know that the unstoppable process has commenced. We do not know if the baby will come on the fifth, the fifteenth, the fiftieth, or the five hundredth.“We may think that the imagery of ‘birth pains’ contradicts Jesus’ statement that the time of His coming is unknown (24:36), since such pains signify the imminent birth of a baby.

13 2. Don’t Be Afraid Periods of wars and rumors of wars, tragic earthquakes, and famines wash over the landscape of history in repeated pains. Each reminds us that the end is coming, but no one knows when until the Son of Man appears. Throughout the labor we must remain on guard. Some will try to mislead believers that these pains are the end. But Jesus warns His disciples not to be deceived. The first appearance, especially the tragedies they will witness in Jerusalem in A.D. 70, are the beginning of birth pains, but they will continue to recur and will characterize the entire age.” – Michael WilkinsPeriods of wars and rumors of wars, tragic earthquakes, and famines wash over the landscape of history in repeated pains.
