Mark 13:23 But take care; see, I have made all things clear to you before the time. (Bible in Basic English) BBE

23So be on your guard; I have told you everything ahead of time. New International Version (NIV)

23 Watch out! I have warned you about this ahead of time! New Living Translation (NLT)

No One Knows the Day or Hour
21-23"If anyone tries to flag you down, calling out, 'Here's the Messiah!' or points, 'There he is!' don't fall for it. Fake Messiahs and lying preachers are going to pop up everywhere. Their impressive credentials and dazzling performances will pull the wool over the eyes of even those who ought to know better. So watch out. I've given you fair warning. The Message (MSG)

23 But take heed; see, I have told you all things beforehand. New King James Version (NKJV)

23"But take heed; behold, I have told you everything in advance.

2Peter 3:17
For this reason, my loved ones, having knowledge of these things before they take place, take care that you are not turned away by the error of the uncontrolled, so falling from your true faith.

Christ's prophetic declaration.


Our Lord Jesus, in reply to the disciples' question, does not so much satisfy their curiosity as direct their consciences. When many are deceived, we should thereby be awakened to look to ourselves. And the disciples of Christ, if it be not their own fault, may enjoy holy security and peace of mind, when all around is in disorder. But they must take heed that they are not drawn away from Christ and their duty to him, by the sufferings they will meet with for his sake. They shall be hated of all men: trouble enough! Yet the work they were called to should be carried on and prosper. Though they may be crushed and borne down, the gospel cannot be. The salvation promised is more than deliverance from evil, it is everlasting blessedness. (Mk 13:14-23)
