March 13:14-37

In verse 14 there is a definite marker that defines the middle of Daniel’s 70th week, or the last seven years before Jesus returns. It is called “the abomination of desolation.” This event is when the Antichrist turns on the Jews, followed by 1260 days called “The Great Tribulation.” After the tribulation, Jesus will appear in the clouds in the sky, gathering His elect up to where He is. This is the rapture. It happens after the tribulation.

Deuteronomy 14-16

In chapter 14, Moses gives God’s instruction for mourning, food, and tithing.

In chapter 15, Moses writes God’s instruction for debt cancellation after the seventh year, generosity to the poor, bondservants, and firstborn animals. The Apostle Paul calls himself a bondservant of Christ. What is a bondservant? In verses 16-17, a bondservant is someone who is given the opportunity to leave the home of their employer, but that person decides to stay because that person loves their employer and his house. The Apostle Paul willing chose to serve the Lord out of His love for Christ.

In chapter 16, He reviews Passover, the Feast of Weeks, and the Feast of Tabernacles. At the end of the chapter, He writes about justice.
