Mark 13:21 Meaning and Commentary

Mark 13:21

And then if any man shall say to you
During those days of tribulation and affliction, or when shortened and at an end:

lo! [here is] Christ, or lo! [he is] there;
the Messiah has appeared in such or in such a place, to deliver you from your national distresses and calamities, and from the Roman yoke and bondage:

believe him not;
give no credit to such a report, for the reason following; (See Gill on Matthew 24:23).

Mark 13:21 In-Context

19 For those will be days of tribulation, the kind that hasn't been from the beginning of the world, which God created, until now and never will be again!
20 Unless the Lord limited those days, no one would survive. But He limited those days because of the elect, whom He chose.
21 "Then if anyone tells you, 'Look, here is the Messiah! Look-there!' do not believe it!
22 For false messiahs and false prophets will rise up and will perform signs and wonders to lead astray, if possible, the elect.
23 And you must watch! I have told you everything in advance.
