Matthew 24:6

See that ye be not troubled (orate mh troeiste).
Asyndeton here with these two imperatives as Mark 8:15 orate blepete (Robertson, Grammar, p. 949). Look out for the wars and rumours of wars, but do not be scared out of your wits by them. Troew means to cry aloud, to scream, and in the passive to be terrified by an outcry. Paul uses this very verb (mhde troeistai) in 2 Thessalonians 2:2 as a warning against excitement over false reports that he had predicted the immediate second coming of Christ.

But the end is not yet (all' oupw estin to telov).
It is curious how people overlook these words of Jesus and proceed to set dates for the immediate end. That happened during the Great War and it has happened since.
