here and now

Saturday November 21st, Mark 13: 7 When you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. 8 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in various places, and famines. These are the beginning of birth pains.  When you hear of a prediction of when the world will end, put a mark on your calendar, and call it a day of celebration.  You can be assured that the end as you know it will not be on that day.  We are called to live life in the here and now not for some day that may or may not be.  We are called to live in the kingdom in the here and now.  We are called to love like the kingdom was here and now.  When we do so, we discover that the kingdom is here and now.  In the book of Revelation, the Holy City, the kingdom of God comes down to earth and with it the Christ of the world.  This begs the question, where are all those people being raptured going?  We are called to live in the world of here and know and live in it as the Kingdom of God it is called to be and someday will be.
