Why can we have joy and peace all year round because we know the King of Peace? He comforts us through the Precious Holy Spirit and He said I will guide you into all truth and show you things to come. John 16:13.
We are entering into the most exciting time of the Church and near the rapture of the Church, WE HAVE HOPE.
No teaching on Bible prophecy can be complete without referring to the Words of Jesus in Matthew 24:1-51 and Luke 21:7-38 regarding END TIME PROPHECY and Christ’s 2nd coming. Like I have already stated on another teaching, Bible prophecy has to come to pass, God is not a liar. It will not go away just because we ignore it and it is important to have knowledge about it so we can be a peace knowing that the Lord will take care of us and to encourage others. “BUT IN YOUR HEART REVERE CHRIST AS LORD. ALWAYS BE PREPARED TO GIVE AN ANSWER TO EVERYONE WHO ASKS YOU TO GIVE THE REASON FOR THE HOPE THAT YOU HAVE. BUT DO THIS WITH GENTLENESS AND RESPECT.” 1 Peter 3:15 NIV.
So now let’s go back to Matthew 24:3-51:
vs. 3 The disciples ask Jesus what are the signs of Jesus 2nd coming and the end of the world? (Fair question right, you bet it is?)
vs. 4 Notice the very first thing Jesus gave for the signs of the 2nd coming is DECEPTION. “Now the Spirit speaketh, expressly that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils.” 1 Timothy 4:1-5 Let me say this, you can’t depart from something unless you were there in the first place. This is a very sobering thought, I tell people that if there ever was a time to live for the Lord it is now.
vs. 5 There will be people who say they are the Christ. (deception) THERE HAS BEEN THIS DECEPTION IN THE PAST BUT REMEMBER IT IS NOT JUST ONE OF THESE THINGS THAT USHER IN THE 2ND COMING OF CHRIST IT IS ALL OF THEM TOGETHER WITH INCREASING INTENSITY LIKE BIRTH PAINS OF A WOMAN IN TRAVAIL FOR BIRTH. 1 Thessalonians 5:2-3 (The Day of the Lord begins with the tribulation and includes the 2nd coming of Christ and the millennial reign).
Vs. 6 Once again we have heard of wars and rumors of wars, but now we see them on every hand and they are increasing exponentially. Afghanistan and Pakistan, Russian and the Ukraine, North and South Korea is a simmering powder keg, parts of Africa, Isis around the world, Iran, Syria, the Palestinians, extremist Muslims around the world, violence in the streets of America, Great Britian just to name a few and it is greatly increasing all the time.
Vs. 7 Nation will rise up against nation as is noted above. Earthquakes are increasing in numbers and intensity around the world and in many cases in quarters that have not had them or very few before.
There are world wide famines that are so great in places like Africa. I was watching a news clip about the drought in California, it is very serious and has been going on several years. Ebola outbreaks that from the last estimate I heard just a couple of days ago it was over 4700 deaths and they are talking about more outbreaks of killing infectious diseases.
Vs. 8 What did Jesus say about all of these events, He said it is the beginning of sorrows. In other words the precursor to tribulation.
MOST OF THE REST OF MATTHEW 24 IS TALKING ABOUT THE TRIBULATION ITSELF.
WHAT TIME PERIOD ARE WE IN PROPHETICALLY, WE ARE IN THE BEGINNING OF SORROWS. IF YOU HAVE NOT READ MY TEACHING ON “WHAT TIME IS IT?” (PART 3) PLEASE READ IT, I DOWNLOADED IT LAST WEEK. WE ARE IN THE BEGINNING OF SORROWS BUT WE HAVE THE BLESSED HOPE THAT WE WILL NOT GO THROUGH THE TRIBULATION AS BORN AGAIN CHRISTIANS.
Look at verse 14, the gospel will be preached around the world. Right now 2 giant Christian television stations are constantly enlarging their viewing areas. These 2 are Trinity Broadcasting Corp and Daystar Television Network. Between these 2 they are almost reaching the whole earth by satellite, thank God for Christian television, I absolutely believe in it, many times it has encourage and lifted me up and given me direction over the years. It is truly of the Lord. Not to mention all the shut ins of the world who can’t go to Church. Yet I have heard people belittle them, that is sad. Do I agree with everything I have ever heard on Christian television, of course not but you will not have even any 2 people agree on the Word of God all the time. Now we see through a glass darkly but then face to face. (1 Corinthians 13:12)
The most important thing I can share with you concerning the end times we are living in is that Jesus said in John 3:3 “JESUS ANSWERED AND SAID UNTO HIM (NICODEMUS), VERILY, VERILY, I SAY UNTO THEE, EXCEPT A MAN BE BORN AGAIN, HE CANNOT SEE THE KINGDOM OF GOD.”
Jesus is not talking about you just going to church, paying tithes or offerings, singing in the choir, being an elder in the church, helping the poor etc. all of that is fine, but you must be born again.
But here is the ultimate question, IF YOU DIED RIGHT NOW WHERE DO YOU THINK YOU WOULD SPEND ETERNITY? Nicodemus was a “religious” man. He thought he could be good enough in his own right but Isaiah 64:6 says our righteousness is as filthy rags. The best we do in our own right is not good enough, only Jesus precious blood can cleanse you from your sins, your church going will NEVER do it. (See our tab on SALVATION on this website and tell us when you have asked Jesus in your heart, thank you, we want to rejoice with you.
Next Monday we will look at some other aspects of Bible prophecy. It will excite you to live for the Lord, PRAISE THE LIVING GOD.
Nita and I have been called to an evangelistic/teaching ministry. Some of the areas that we teach on is The Precious Holy Spirit, the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, His gifts and how to walk in the supernatural, how to worship the Lord in spirit and in truth, Bible prophecy, the privilege and blessing of giving tithes and offerings to the Lord and most important of all leading people to the Lord Jesus Christ.
