The pieces of prophecy are quickly falling in place. Learn how the unfolding of recent events show exactly that!
Is This Important?
Yes because this ties in with many other aspects and truths of the Bible.
Fits together perfectly
Hold Fast to What?
Romans 12:9 Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good.
What is good?
Let’s look at a few of the items
We Have a Commission
Mark 16:15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.
Mark 16:16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.
How does it go out to all the world if we stop it at any time?
How could we have this opportunity that we now have if it were not for the preaching of the gospel?
Today I want to remind us of the REWARDS that come with this way of life and try to put our current situation and circumstances into perspective.
A follow on from last week’s message
What do we have to look forward to after this life?
Why are we doing what we are doing now?
We are proclaiming that we want to live this way of life forever…and with God
But it won’t be like it is now – but beyond imagination
1 Corinthians 2:9 But as it is written: “EYE HAS NOT SEEN, NOR EAR HEARD, NOR HAVE ENTERED INTO THE HEART OF MAN THE THINGS WHICH GOD HAS PREPARED FOR THOSE WHO LOVE HIM.”
Context of 57-58 (Sins of Israel)
Isaiah 58:1 “Cry aloud, spare not; Lift up your voice like a trumpet; Tell My people their transgression, And the house of Jacob their sins.
Isaiah 59:1 Behold, the LORD’s hand is not shortened, That it cannot save; Nor His ear heavy, That it cannot hear.
Isaiah 59:2 But your iniquities have separated you from your God; And your sins have hidden His face from you, So that He will not hear.
How would you present Christ’s life if you had lived with Him as a young man? Now how would your telling of the story change if you much older and had grown in grace and knowledge of that same Lord and Savior?
Let’s turn to it and see….in the book of John
John apparently lived the longest – Tasked with taking care of Jesus’ mother; and writing the book of Revelation
More than likely read the other gospel accounts
Have you ever been in the throes of a trial
Too difficult to save yourself
Out of desperation and as a last resort you turn to God?
These are the times that are coming
