Matthew 19:28-30 (NIV) 28 Jesus said to them, “I tell you the truth, at the renewal of all things, when the Son of Man sits on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. 29 And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or fields for my sake will receive a hundred times as much and will inherit eternal life. 30 But many who are first will be last, and many who are last will be first.
Following Jesus’ exhortation to the rich young ruler, Peter inquired as to what it meant for them to have left everything to follow Jesus. First, Jesus assures his followers that they will hold positions of responsibility in the upcoming kingdom.
First, Jesus promises the disciples positions of power in the upcoming kingdom. Then He addresses everyone who has suffered loss for His sake. The promise is a hundred times what you abandoned, plus eternal life! The eternal life aspect would be plenty, but there is more. Everyone in the kingdom will be compensated for their efforts and losses.
Jesus summarizes it by adding that His kingdom is frequently diametrically opposed to the world’s. Many of the first will turn out to be the last, and many of the last will turn out to be the first. The kingdom’s upside-down reality promises to make things right for those who have suffered loss.
You will suffer this loss if you follow Jesus with all your heart. It could be the loss of a job, a friendship, or tangible things. Whatever you have lost by following Jesus, rest certain that a hundred times more awaits you. You have sowed the physical and you will reap one hundred times in the kingdom. Mark’s gospel adds that you will receive it both now and in the future (Mark 10:30).
Consider this: Can you conceive of any investment strategy that pays higher dividends?
The Great Tribulation
It is our belief that the Great Tribulation referred to in the New Testament Book of Revelation (chapters 6-11) is unfolding before our eyes.

In the Bible, the Watchman is responsible for keeping watch and warning others of potential danger or impending judgment. The role is mentioned several times in the Old Testament, particularly in the book of Ezekiel. In Ezekiel 33:6, God says to the prophet Ezekiel, “But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, so that the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any one of them, that person is taken away in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand.” Click here to begin the journey.
