Mark 13:37 KJV
And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.

I count four times in this chapter Jesus says "take heed. "

Mark 13:5 KJV
And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you:

There will be those who, satanically inspired, will seek to deceive you and draw you after false Christs. Deception is a tool of the devil and is active in the world today. Deception renders the lost blind to the gospel. Deception prevents the believer from surrendering fully to Christ. Take heed of deception.

Mark 13:9 KJV
But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them.

There will be dangers that come from leaders and governments, both political and spiritual. This world is a dangerous place for the person who is surrendered to Christ. We do not take heed to avoid the danger. We take heed that our message is of the Holy Ghost despite the danger.

Mark 13:23 KJV
But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.

There is among us a place to find the warnings concerning these troubles. Jesus has given us His Word and it forewarns us of all these things. Ours is to know the Word of God clearly and carefully.

Mark 13:33 KJV
Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.

There is this one uncertainty; we "know not when the time is". Therefore we are told to watch and pray.

So all of these "take heeds" l become summed up in this one word, "watch."
