Friday, April 21

Keep on the watch.—Mark 13:35.

Upon recognizing that Christ’s presence began in 1914, Jesus’ followers rightly prepared for a possible early arrival of the end. They did so by intensifying their Kingdom-preaching work. Jesus indicated that he might come later—“at dawn or early in the morning.” If that happened, how were his followers to respond? He said: “Keep on the watch.” So a long wait would not justify mentally postponing the end or totally dismissing their expectations. In the new world, we will have reason to reflect on the fact that all the foretold events associated with the conclusion of the system of things did indeed take place. Meditating on how matters actually turned out will further strengthen our confidence in Jehovah and his promises yet to be fulfilled. (Josh. 23:14) We will surely be thankful that God, who ‘has placed times and seasons in his own jurisdiction,’ exhorted us to live with an awareness that ‘the end of all things had drawn close.’—Acts 1:7; 1 Pet. 4:7. w15 8/15 2:10, 11, 14

Keep Working, Watching, and Waiting

SONG 143

1. The God of times and of seasons,

Whose name alone is Jehovah—

The time for his vindication

Is near by signs we can see.


Keep on working and watching and waiting,

Joyfully anticipating,

Life as God meant it to be.


2. The time has long been appointed;

His Son is ready to conquer,

Defeating all who oppose him.

His sword will bring victory.


Keep on working and watching and waiting,

Joyfully anticipating,

Life as God meant it to be.


3. Though all creation is groaning,

In faith we’re eagerly waiting.

Jehovah’s day is approaching,

The time for setting us free.


Keep on working and watching and waiting,

Joyfully anticipating,

Life as God meant it to be.
