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 in those days there will be such tribulation as has not been from the beginning of the creation that God created until now, and never will be.
20 And if the Lord had not cut short the days, no human being would be saved. But for the sake of the elect, whom he chose, he shortened the days.
21 And then if anyone says to you, 'Look, here is the Christ!' or 'Look, there he is!' do not believe it.
22 For false christs and false prophets will arise and perform signs and wonders, to lead astray, if possible, the elect.
23 But be on guard; I have told you all things beforehand.
