  • "If these thingsare happening today
  • 00:06:26.692 --> 00:06:30.296
  • what will be the future for mychildren and my grandchildren?"
  • 00:06:30.329 --> 00:06:36.469
  • Well, there's only onereliable source of information
  • 00:06:36.502 --> 00:06:38.738
  • about the future.
  • 00:06:38.771 --> 00:06:40.640
  • Only one that has an astoundingrecord of accuracy
  • 00:06:40.673 --> 00:06:44.210
  • and that's the Bible.
  • 00:06:44.243 --> 00:06:47.013
  • If you wanna knowabout the future,
  • 00:06:47.046 --> 00:06:48.781
  • there's only one placeyou can go and find
  • 00:06:48.815 --> 00:06:50.616
  • any good information.
  • 00:06:50.650 --> 00:06:51.951
  • Don't read the futurists;read the prophets.
  • 00:06:51.984 --> 00:06:55.922
  • The Bible is filledwith information to help us
  • 00:06:55.955 --> 00:06:58.024
  • navigate the uncertain coursethat is before us.
  • 00:06:58.057 --> 00:07:02.295
  • People say,"I don't believe in prophecy,"
  • 00:07:02.328 --> 00:07:04.964
  • but they do.
  • 00:07:04.997 --> 00:07:06.299
  • It wasn't so long ago, was it,that you could hardly turn
  • 00:07:06.332 --> 00:07:08.968
  • on your television,turn one channel to the next
  • 00:07:09.001 --> 00:07:11.103
  • and every time you turnedthe channel here
  • 00:07:11.137 --> 00:07:13.406
  • was some psychic personwilling to tell you your future.
  • 00:07:13.439 --> 00:07:18.077
  • They even had a network called"The Psychic Network."
  • 00:07:18.110 --> 00:07:21.981
  • And they went out of business.
  • 00:07:22.014 --> 00:07:24.317
  • You would have thoughtthey would have known.
  • 00:07:24.350 --> 00:07:26.853
  • One pastor I know saidthat he doesn't ever preach
  • 00:07:33.693 --> 00:07:35.895
  • on prophecy because, he said,"Prophecy distracts people
  • 00:07:35.928 --> 00:07:39.799
  • from the present."
  • 00:07:39.832 --> 00:07:42.735
  • An astute colleaguedeftly responded,
  • 00:07:42.768 --> 00:07:45.171
  • "Well, then,there's an awful lot
  • 00:07:45.204 --> 00:07:46.672
  • of distractions in the Bible."
  • 00:07:46.706 --> 00:07:49.442
  • There are 300 propheciesin the Bible concerning
  • 00:07:49.475 --> 00:07:52.512
  • the First Coming of Christbut there are 3 times
  • 00:07:52.545 --> 00:07:56.649
  • that many propheciesin the Bible concerning
  • 00:07:56.682 --> 00:07:59.552
  • the Second Coming of Christ.
  • 00:07:59.585 --> 00:08:02.488
  • If Almighty God prophesiedhis First Coming over here
  • 00:08:02.522 --> 00:08:07.159
  • and now time has passedand we can trace what happened
  • 00:08:07.193 --> 00:08:10.396
  • and we say, "You know,everything he said
  • 00:08:10.429 --> 00:08:13.065
  • would happen happened."
  • 00:08:13.099 --> 00:08:14.467
  • And now he's prophesyinganother Coming
  • 00:08:14.500 --> 00:08:18.404
  • with the same kind of verbiagein the same prophets,
  • 00:08:18.437 --> 00:08:22.308
  • what do you think he will do?
  • 00:08:22.341 --> 00:08:24.310
  • I think he'll fulfill them,don't you?
  • 00:08:24.343 --> 00:08:26.679
  • I think the things that he sayswill happen will happen.
  • 00:08:26.712 --> 00:08:30.349
  • And, oh, my friends,how many truths
  • 00:08:30.383 --> 00:08:32.552
  • there are in the Word of Godabout the days in which
  • 00:08:32.585 --> 00:08:35.721
  • we are living and the timewhich is yet to come.
  • 00:08:35.755 --> 00:08:40.059
  • If you want to know whatin the world is going on,
  • 00:08:40.092 --> 00:08:43.896
  • you have to turn to the Biblefor some answers.
  • 00:08:43.930 --> 00:08:47.934
  • Have you ever asked yourselfthis question: Why am I
  • 00:08:47.967 --> 00:08:52.605
  • on this earthat this particular time?
  • 00:08:52.638 --> 00:08:54.273
  • Did you know that Almighty Godcould have dropped you down
  • 00:08:54.307 --> 00:08:57.276
  • along the landscape of historyany place he wanted?
  • 00:08:57.310 --> 00:09:01.147
  • But he put you here.
  • 00:09:01.180 --> 00:09:02.582
  • He put you here for now.
  • 00:09:02.615 --> 00:09:04.584
  • God wants you here for now.
  • 00:09:04.617 --> 00:09:06.085
  • So don't complain about nothaving lived in a different time
  • 00:09:06.118 --> 00:09:08.955
  • or wish you could livein some future time.
  • 00:09:08.988 --> 00:09:11.891
  • Embrace the fact that Godhas given you this time
  • 00:09:11.924 --> 00:09:15.127
  • and then find out everythingyou can about how to live
  • 00:09:15.161 --> 00:09:17.964
  • this time in the Holy Spiritpower that he wants to give you.
  • 00:09:17.997 --> 00:09:23.703
  • So where are we?
  • 00:09:23.736 --> 00:09:25.204
  • What's happening?
  • 00:09:25.237 --> 00:09:26.539
  • Well, let me just say firstof all, we're living in the
  • 00:09:26.572 --> 00:09:29.175
  • generation of the rebirthof the nation of Israel.
  • 00:09:29.208 --> 00:09:34.013
  • When I was 7 years old,something happened in our world
  • 00:09:34.046 --> 00:09:38.718
  • that has forever changedthe landscape going forward.
  • 00:09:38.751 --> 00:09:42.888
  • It almost happened offthe radar screen as far as
  • 00:09:42.922 --> 00:09:45.558
  • many people are concerned.
  • 00:09:45.591 --> 00:09:47.927
  • It was 1948 so you do the mathand you'll figure out
  • 00:09:47.960 --> 00:09:51.197
  • how old I am.
  • 00:09:51.230 --> 00:09:53.399
  • It was 1948 and the nationof Israel was born.
  • 00:09:53.432 --> 00:09:59.338
  • And the significanceof Israel's re-emergence
  • 00:09:59.372 --> 00:10:01.941
  • in her ancient homelandis critical to us because,
  • 00:10:01.974 --> 00:10:05.444
  • in order for all ofthe other end time prophecies
  • 00:10:05.478 --> 00:10:08.581
  • to happen, Israel has to beat home in her own land.
  • 00:10:08.614 --> 00:10:14.153
  • And so now the beginningof the regathering of the nation
  • 00:10:14.186 --> 00:10:16.922
  • of Israel has happened.
  • 00:10:16.956 --> 00:10:19.058
  • Israel today is exhibit Ain the line-up
  • 00:10:19.091 --> 00:10:22.261
  • of convincing evidencesthat the Bible prophecies
  • 00:10:22.294 --> 00:10:25.564
  • concerning the futureare going to be fulfilled.
  • 00:10:25.598 --> 00:10:28.434
  • Here after all these years isthis little nation
  • 00:10:28.467 --> 00:10:31.604
  • confounding everyonewith their military ability and
  • 00:10:31.637 --> 00:10:35.708
  • their commitment to survival.
  • 00:10:35.741 --> 00:10:39.645
  • The little nation of Israelis 1/19 the size of California,
  • 00:10:39.679 --> 00:10:43.749
  • not even as big as New Jersey,and yet here it is,
  • 00:10:43.783 --> 00:10:46.719
  • God's special plan,God's special place,
  • 00:10:46.752 --> 00:10:49.689
  • just as God said it would be,arising in the end time
  • 00:10:49.722 --> 00:10:53.592
  • to be present so thatall the prophecies that
  • 00:10:53.626 --> 00:10:55.861
  • surround it could take place.
  • 00:10:55.895 --> 00:10:59.398
  • Not only do you havethe rebirth of Israel
  • 00:10:59.432 --> 00:11:01.734
  • as a nation,but you have the redistribution
  • 00:11:01.767 --> 00:11:04.637
  • of wealth through oil.
  • 00:11:04.670 --> 00:11:07.773
  • After the 1948 refoundingof the nation of Israel
  • 00:11:07.807 --> 00:11:12.011
  • in her ancient homeland,even Bible-believing Christians
  • 00:11:12.044 --> 00:11:16.015
  • often wondered what would drawthe attention and animosity
  • 00:11:16.048 --> 00:11:19.552
  • of the whole worldto that little nation.
  • 00:11:19.585 --> 00:11:22.922
  • I remember thinking,"You know, I read the Bible
  • 00:11:22.955 --> 00:11:24.924
  • and the Bible saysit's all gonna end
  • 00:11:24.957 --> 00:11:26.292
  • over there in Israel.
  • 00:11:26.325 --> 00:11:27.626
  • I mean,it doesn't make any sense,
  • 00:11:27.660 --> 00:11:28.961
  • this little tiny nation."
  • 00:11:28.994 --> 00:11:30.296
  • Then all of a sudden,everybody began to realize
  • 00:11:30.329 --> 00:11:32.631
  • it's the oil.
  • 00:11:32.665 --> 00:11:34.500
  • The Bible says God is gonna puta hook in the jaws
  • 00:11:34.533 --> 00:11:37.636
  • of the nations and I believethat hook is the oil.
  • 00:11:37.670 --> 00:11:40.606
  • Oil in the Middle East will belike a magnet drawing all of
  • 00:11:40.639 --> 00:11:43.776
  • the nations to that focal pointfor the final war that will
  • 00:11:43.809 --> 00:11:47.446
  • take place on this earth.
  • 00:11:47.480 --> 00:11:50.149
  • So, we have the rebirthof Israel in our lifetime.
  • 00:11:50.182 --> 00:11:53.719
  • We have the redistributionof wealth in our lifetime.
  • 00:11:53.753 --> 00:11:58.491
  • And then, keep your eyeson Europe,
  • 00:11:58.524 --> 00:12:02.394
  • the realignment of Europeas well.
  • 00:12:02.428 --> 00:12:05.865
  • In Europe today,we are seeing the fulfillment
  • 00:12:05.898 --> 00:12:08.667
  • of a prophecy that many folksdon't even know about.
  • 00:12:08.701 --> 00:12:13.205
  • Did you know thatin the book of Daniel,
  • 00:12:13.239 --> 00:12:14.940
  • in the 2nd andin the 9th chapter,
  • 00:12:14.974 --> 00:12:16.942
  • Daniel saw the opportunityto interpret
  • 00:12:16.976 --> 00:12:20.079
  • a couple of dreams?
  • 00:12:20.112 --> 00:12:21.580
  • These two dreams, basically,are about one thing.
  • 00:12:21.614 --> 00:12:24.350
  • They're about the historyof the world from Daniel's time
  • 00:12:24.383 --> 00:12:28.888
  • until Almighty God sets uphis kingdom on this earth.
  • 00:12:28.921 --> 00:12:33.793
  • Literally, what the prophecyis saying, men and women,
  • 00:12:33.826 --> 00:12:36.462
  • is this.
  • 00:12:36.495 --> 00:12:37.797
  • That what is happening in Europetoday, this reorganization
  • 00:12:37.830 --> 00:12:40.733
  • of Europe, 27 nations nowin the European Coalition,
  • 00:12:40.766 --> 00:12:46.272
  • their own coins calledthe Eurodollar,
  • 00:12:46.305 --> 00:12:52.778
  • this reconnectionof all the old nations
  • 00:12:52.812 --> 00:12:56.415
  • of the Roman empire,are fulfilling the prophecies
  • 00:12:56.448 --> 00:12:59.685
  • of Daniel and pretty soon theywill have their own president.
  • 00:12:59.718 --> 00:13:04.924
  • They already havetheir own constitution.
  • 00:13:04.957 --> 00:13:07.593
  • They tell us that this is nowthe most powerful bloc
  • 00:13:07.626 --> 00:13:10.963
  • of nations in the world,equaling almost the power and
  • 00:13:10.996 --> 00:13:15.334
  • dominance of the United States.
  • 00:13:15.367 --> 00:13:17.536
  • You say, "Pastor Jeremiah,what is the significance
  • 00:13:18.971 --> 00:13:21.106
  • of Europe?
  • 00:13:21.140 --> 00:13:22.441
  • Why is that important?"It's important for this reason.
  • 00:13:22.474 --> 00:13:25.544
  • The Bible says thatin the end time there is
  • 00:13:25.578 --> 00:13:28.948
  • going to be a rulerwho comes upon this earth.
  • 00:13:28.981 --> 00:13:32.284
  • He will rule the whole world.
  • 00:13:32.318 --> 00:13:36.288
  • He will be the rulerof the whole world.
  • 00:13:36.322 --> 00:13:39.258
  • I thought at one timethat would be impossible.
  • 00:13:39.291 --> 00:13:42.127
  • It's becoming moreand more possible all the time,
  • 00:13:42.161 --> 00:13:43.762
  • is it not?
  • 00:13:43.796 --> 00:13:45.497
  • Through all of our technology,through all the things
  • 00:13:45.531 --> 00:13:48.133
  • we're able to do.
  • 00:13:48.167 --> 00:13:49.468
  • The Bible says he willabrogate power to himself and
  • 00:13:49.501 --> 00:13:52.137
  • he will rule the whole world.
  • 00:13:52.171 --> 00:13:53.472
  • Now, what the Scripture saysis this: this world ruler
  • 00:13:53.505 --> 00:13:56.475
  • will come out of the reunitedEuropean Coalition.
  • 00:13:56.508 --> 00:14:00.646
  • In other words,out of the old Roman empire,
  • 00:14:00.679 --> 00:14:02.982
  • revived in the last time,this ruler will emerge.
  • 00:14:03.015 --> 00:14:06.986
  • He will come from there.
  • 00:14:07.019 --> 00:14:08.320
  • He's not gonna comefrom the United States.
  • 00:14:08.354 --> 00:14:10.022
  • The Bible says thatthe Antichrist
  • 00:14:10.055 --> 00:14:11.724
  • will not be revealeduntil after the Rapture.
  • 00:14:11.757 --> 00:14:14.126
  • So if you think you know whohe is, you've been left behind.
  • 00:14:14.159 --> 00:14:17.263
  • [audience laughing]
  • 00:14:17.296 --> 00:14:22.301
  • The Bible says thatall these things are happening
  • 00:14:22.701 --> 00:14:25.537
  • and they're preparing the wayfor an event, listen to me now,
  • 00:14:25.571 --> 00:14:29.441
  • that could happen tonight.
  • 00:14:29.475 --> 00:14:31.477
  • The Bible speaks of a momentin time and it's called
  • 00:14:31.810 --> 00:14:34.980
  • the Rapture.
  • 00:14:35.014 --> 00:14:37.182
  • The Rapture is an event that isyet to happen on this earth
  • 00:14:37.216 --> 00:14:42.655
  • and the Bible speaks of it in1 Thessalonians chapter 4:
  • 00:14:42.688 --> 00:14:47.760
  • "I do not want youto be ignorant, brethren,
  • 00:14:47.793 --> 00:14:49.328
  • concerning thosewho have fallen asleep,
  • 00:14:49.361 --> 00:14:51.497
  • lest you sorrow as otherswho have no hope.
  • 00:14:51.530 --> 00:14:54.800
  • For if we believe thatJesus died and rose again,
  • 00:14:54.833 --> 00:14:57.937
  • even so God will bring with Himthose that sleep in Jesus.
  • 00:14:57.970 --> 00:15:03.042
  • For this we say to youby the word of the Lord,
  • 00:15:03.075 --> 00:15:05.811
  • that we who are aliveand remain until the coming
  • 00:15:05.844 --> 00:15:08.080
  • of the Lord will by no meansprecede those who are asleep.
  • 00:15:08.113 --> 00:15:11.583
  • For the Lord Himselfshall descend from heaven
  • 00:15:11.617 --> 00:15:13.953
  • with a shout,with the voice of an archangel,
  • 00:15:13.986 --> 00:15:16.588
  • and the trumpet of God.
  • 00:15:16.622 --> 00:15:18.257
  • And the dead in Christwill rise first.
  • 00:15:18.290 --> 00:15:20.793
  • And we who are alive and remainshall be caught up together
  • 00:15:20.826 --> 00:15:23.362
  • with them in the clouds to meetthe Lord in the air.
  • 00:15:23.395 --> 00:15:27.566
  • And thus we shall always bewith the Lord.
  • 00:15:27.599 --> 00:15:29.969
  • Therefore comfort," encourage,"one another with these words."
  • 00:15:30.002 --> 00:15:36.542
  • Now Paul wrote this to a churchin Thessalonica
  • 00:15:36.575 --> 00:15:39.511
  • for one specific reason.
  • 00:15:39.545 --> 00:15:41.146
  • Listen carefully.
  • 00:15:41.180 --> 00:15:42.848
  • Almost everybody who was therein the church at the time
  • 00:15:42.881 --> 00:15:45.818
  • believed that Jesuswas coming back.
  • 00:15:45.851 --> 00:15:48.687
  • They had been taught thatand they accepted it as true.
  • 00:15:48.721 --> 00:15:52.324
  • But what they didn't understandwas this.
  • 00:15:52.358 --> 00:15:55.227
  • They had godly parents andgrandparents and sisters and
  • 00:15:55.260 --> 00:15:58.130
  • brothers and some of them,children, who also had trusted
  • 00:15:58.163 --> 00:16:01.500
  • Christ but they had diedand their bodies had been buried
  • 00:16:01.533 --> 00:16:05.170
  • in the ground.
  • 00:16:05.204 --> 00:16:06.672
  • And the Thessalonians wantedto know, "What about them?
  • 00:16:06.705 --> 00:16:09.742
  • What happens to them?"And so Paul begins
  • 00:16:09.775 --> 00:16:12.144
  • his little verse by saying,"I would not have you
  • 00:16:12.177 --> 00:16:14.513
  • to be ignorant, brethren,concerning those
  • 00:16:14.546 --> 00:16:17.082
  • who have fallen asleep."
  • 00:16:17.116 --> 00:16:18.584
  • You all know that fallen asleepmeans died.
  • 00:16:18.617 --> 00:16:20.986
  • That's what you say abouta Christian who dies.
  • 00:16:21.020 --> 00:16:23.088
  • He falls asleep.
  • 00:16:23.122 --> 00:16:24.423
  • Paul addresses thisto the ignorant brethren.
  • 00:16:24.456 --> 00:16:26.992
  • Somebody said that's the largestcongregation in the whole world:
  • 00:16:27.026 --> 00:16:29.762
  • the ignorant brethren.
  • 00:16:29.795 --> 00:16:31.096
  • I don't know if that's trueor not.
  • 00:16:31.130 --> 00:16:32.965
  • But these brethren were a bitignorant about what was going
  • 00:16:32.998 --> 00:16:35.267
  • to happen to their loved ones.
  • 00:16:35.300 --> 00:16:37.169
  • And so, Paul wrote this letterand he said,
  • 00:16:37.202 --> 00:16:38.904
  • "Let me setthis all straight for you."
  • 00:16:38.937 --> 00:16:40.806
  • And he gave thema crystal-clear outline.
  • 00:16:40.839 --> 00:16:43.175
  • First, he said,"I want you to know that one day
  • 00:16:43.208 --> 00:16:44.877
  • there's gonna be a return.
  • 00:16:44.910 --> 00:16:47.112
  • One day the Lord Jesus is gonnacome out of the skies and he's
  • 00:16:47.146 --> 00:16:50.382
  • gonna come into the heavens."
  • 00:16:50.416 --> 00:16:52.151
  • And the Bible says he will comewith a shout and the voice
  • 00:16:52.184 --> 00:16:55.554
  • of an archangeland the trump of God.
  • 00:16:55.587 --> 00:16:57.456
  • He's not gonna send his angels.
  • 00:16:57.489 --> 00:16:58.791
  • It won't be the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:16:58.824 --> 00:17:00.859
  • It's not gonna beJohn the Baptist.
  • 00:17:00.893 --> 00:17:02.761
  • The Lord himself will return.
  • 00:17:02.795 --> 00:17:06.265
  • And then Paul madethis astounding statement
  • 00:17:06.298 --> 00:17:08.300
  • and he said,"You're worried about
  • 00:17:08.333 --> 00:17:09.635
  • those who have already died.
  • 00:17:09.668 --> 00:17:10.969
  • Don't worry about them."
  • 00:17:11.003 --> 00:17:12.304
  • For he said,"The dead in Christ,"
  • 00:17:12.337 --> 00:17:14.506
  • once again, those are notthe people sitting in the
  • 00:17:14.540 --> 00:17:16.275
  • third row of your church, guys.
  • 00:17:16.308 --> 00:17:17.776
  • I want you to know the deadin Christ are not the people
  • 00:17:17.810 --> 00:17:19.812
  • that fall asleep on Sunday.
  • 00:17:19.845 --> 00:17:21.513
  • The dead in Christare the people who have died
  • 00:17:21.547 --> 00:17:23.348
  • and are buried.
  • 00:17:23.382 --> 00:17:26.051
  • And Paul says, "Now, listen,the Lord is gonna come back
  • 00:17:26.085 --> 00:17:29.655
  • but before he comes after you,he's gonna get all of those
  • 00:17:29.688 --> 00:17:33.125
  • who have already diedand they're gonna rise up
  • 00:17:33.158 --> 00:17:35.594
  • from the groundand there's gonna be
  • 00:17:35.627 --> 00:17:37.329
  • a resurrection."
  • 00:17:37.362 --> 00:17:39.331
  • And then he says afterthe resurrection happens,
  • 00:17:39.364 --> 00:17:42.034
  • after all thosewho have died in Christ
  • 00:17:42.067 --> 00:17:43.869
  • have been raised upand they go up
  • 00:17:43.902 --> 00:17:45.637
  • to the heavens with the Lord,the Bible says and then those
  • 00:17:45.671 --> 00:17:48.307
  • of us who are alive and remain,in other words, we haven't died
  • 00:17:48.340 --> 00:17:51.710
  • and the Lord has come back.
  • 00:17:51.743 --> 00:17:53.846
  • We're gonna be caught uptogether with them to be
  • 00:17:53.879 --> 00:17:56.014
  • with the Lord and so shallwe ever be with him.
  • 00:17:56.048 --> 00:17:59.985
  • Listen to me, men and women,there's coming a day when
  • 00:18:00.018 --> 00:18:02.554
  • there's going to be a shoutand the voice of an archangel
  • 00:18:02.588 --> 00:18:05.791
  • and the trumpet of Godand only believers will hear it
  • 00:18:05.824 --> 00:18:08.560
  • and the Bible saysall of the graves
  • 00:18:08.594 --> 00:18:11.563
  • that had been occupiedby those who are Christians
  • 00:18:11.597 --> 00:18:14.266
  • will be opened and their bodieswill be resurrected and go up
  • 00:18:14.299 --> 00:18:17.236
  • to meet the Lord.
  • 00:18:17.269 --> 00:18:18.704
  • And on their way up,all of their bodies
  • 00:18:18.737 --> 00:18:21.039
  • will be reformed and remadeas a resurrection body.
  • 00:18:21.073 --> 00:18:27.779
  • And as soon as that happens,all of us who are still walking
  • 00:18:27.813 --> 00:18:31.283
  • around on planet earthand I plan to be here,
  • 00:18:31.316 --> 00:18:35.020
  • the Lord willing, I thinkhe's gonna come that soon.
  • 00:18:35.053 --> 00:18:37.389
  • I tell everybody I'm not lookingfor the undertaker, I'm looking
  • 00:18:37.422 --> 00:18:39.958
  • for the uppertaker, amen?
  • 00:18:39.992 --> 00:18:42.227
  • So I wanna go up.
  • 00:18:42.261 --> 00:18:45.297
  • Then we're gonna be caught upto be with the Lord
  • 00:18:45.330 --> 00:18:47.466
  • and then the Bible says:"Together with our loved ones
  • 00:18:47.499 --> 00:18:49.701
  • who died before we did,we're gonna be ushered
  • 00:18:49.735 --> 00:18:52.538
  • into the presence of heavenand there we will be forever."
  • 00:18:52.571 --> 00:18:56.074
  • That's what we haveto look forward to.
  • 00:18:57.176 --> 00:18:59.811
  • I hope that's what you haveto look forward to.
  • 00:18:59.845 --> 00:19:01.713
  • If you know Jesus Christ,that's your future,
  • 00:19:01.747 --> 00:19:05.050
  • plain and simple.
  • 00:19:05.083 --> 00:19:06.685
  • One of these days, the Lord'scoming back and if you know him,
  • 00:19:06.718 --> 00:19:10.088
  • you will be taken to heavento be with him.
  • 00:19:10.122 --> 00:19:16.028
  • We say we believe this.
  • 00:19:16.061 --> 00:19:19.298
  • But do we?
  • 00:19:19.331 --> 00:19:20.933
  • If you knew Jesus was comingtomorrow night, what would
  • 00:19:20.966 --> 00:19:24.303
  • your tomorrow look like?
  • 00:19:24.336 --> 00:19:27.506
  • And people say, "Well, you know,the Bible says he's coming back.
  • 00:19:27.539 --> 00:19:29.808
  • I don't know what to do.
  • 00:19:29.841 --> 00:19:31.143
  • What should I do, Pastor?"Read the words of prophecy.
  • 00:19:31.176 --> 00:19:36.415
  • First of all, the Bible sayswe're to stay centered
  • 00:19:36.448 --> 00:19:38.650
  • on Christ.
  • 00:19:38.684 --> 00:19:40.285
  • Over in Colossians it says:"Since we have been risen
  • 00:19:40.319 --> 00:19:42.854
  • with Christ, we're to set ouraffection on things above,
  • 00:19:42.888 --> 00:19:45.624
  • not on things below."
  • 00:19:45.657 --> 00:19:47.426
  • As we wait for Jesusto come back, we're to set
  • 00:19:47.459 --> 00:19:49.695
  • our affection upon him.
  • 00:19:49.728 --> 00:19:51.930
  • And the Bible says we're to stayconfident in God's Word,
  • 00:19:51.964 --> 00:19:54.566
  • committed to itwith all of our hearts.
  • 00:19:54.600 --> 00:19:57.502
  • We're to understand thatthe only thing we have
  • 00:19:57.536 --> 00:19:59.771
  • that will help usin these difficult days
  • 00:19:59.805 --> 00:20:02.040
  • and prepare us for the timeto come is the Word of God.
  • 00:20:02.074 --> 00:20:06.144
  • The commitmentto the Word of God.
  • 00:20:06.178 --> 00:20:07.946
  • Stay centered in Christ.
  • 00:20:07.980 --> 00:20:09.715
  • Stay committed to the Word.
  • 00:20:09.748 --> 00:20:11.850
  • And here's one I wanna talkabout for just a moment:
  • 00:20:11.883 --> 00:20:14.720
  • stay compassionate towardother people.
  • 00:20:14.753 --> 00:20:17.623
  • Men and women,these are difficult times.
  • 00:20:17.656 --> 00:20:19.524
  • These are the times that wereprophesied we would experience
  • 00:20:19.558 --> 00:20:21.727
  • before the Lord's return.
  • 00:20:21.760 --> 00:20:23.428
  • But here is the opportunityfor us to shine like
  • 00:20:23.462 --> 00:20:26.632
  • we have never shined before.
  • 00:20:26.665 --> 00:20:28.767
  • You know, it grieves mewhen I come into a city
  • 00:20:28.800 --> 00:20:30.702
  • like this city,and you don't have to be
  • 00:20:30.736 --> 00:20:33.472
  • in a city very longbefore you start hearing
  • 00:20:33.505 --> 00:20:35.007
  • a little bit of this anda little bit of that and,
  • 00:20:35.040 --> 00:20:36.775
  • "Well, this is--these people aren't
  • 00:20:36.808 --> 00:20:38.110
  • getting alongwith these people there."
  • 00:20:38.143 --> 00:20:39.444
  • You know what?
  • 00:20:39.478 --> 00:20:40.779
  • The time is come for usto put all that aside.
  • 00:20:40.812 --> 00:20:42.447
  • We are Christiansand the body of Christ needs
  • 00:20:42.481 --> 00:20:44.750
  • to come together.
  • 00:20:44.783 --> 00:20:46.785
  • Really, doesn't have anythingto do with the color of our skin
  • 00:20:49.588 --> 00:20:52.124
  • or our ethnicityor where we came from
  • 00:20:52.157 --> 00:20:53.892
  • or what--how we speak.
  • 00:20:53.925 --> 00:20:55.327
  • It has to do with our faithin Jesus Christ.
  • 00:20:55.360 --> 00:20:57.963
  • And the Bible tells us thatin these days
  • 00:20:57.996 --> 00:21:00.265
  • before Christ comes back,we need to reach out and
  • 00:21:00.299 --> 00:21:03.468
  • join hands with other believersand then we need to spread
  • 00:21:03.502 --> 00:21:06.571
  • our hands out wideand help people
  • 00:21:06.605 --> 00:21:08.740
  • who need our help.
  • 00:21:08.774 --> 00:21:10.075
  • Let this be the finest hourfor the church instead
  • 00:21:10.108 --> 00:21:12.978
  • of the hour when peoplelook at us as a bunch
  • 00:21:13.011 --> 00:21:15.514
  • of stingy people who closeeverything around us and try
  • 00:21:15.547 --> 00:21:19.785
  • to wait for the storm to pass.
  • 00:21:19.818 --> 00:21:22.754
  • You know what?
  • 00:21:22.788 --> 00:21:24.089
  • Almighty God has put us wherewe are at this particular time,
  • 00:21:24.122 --> 00:21:26.758
  • as I said at the beginning,because he has called us
  • 00:21:26.792 --> 00:21:30.128
  • to this time and to this place.
  • 00:21:30.162 --> 00:21:32.998
  • And there are many other thingsthat we're told to do.
  • 00:21:33.198 --> 00:21:35.567
  • We're told to stay connectedto the church,
  • 00:21:35.600 --> 00:21:37.436
  • did you know that?
  • 00:21:37.469 --> 00:21:38.770
  • The Bible says: "Forsake notthe assembling of yourselves
  • 00:21:38.804 --> 00:21:40.806
  • together as the mannerof some is,
  • 00:21:40.839 --> 00:21:42.908
  • but so much the more as you seethe day approaching."
  • 00:21:42.941 --> 00:21:44.776
  • What does that mean?
  • 00:21:44.810 --> 00:21:46.111
  • It means as you realize Jesus iscoming back, you need to get
  • 00:21:46.144 --> 00:21:48.847
  • together with God's peoplemore than you used to.
  • 00:21:48.880 --> 00:21:51.416
  • What I do know is the Biblesays this is not a time for us
  • 00:21:51.450 --> 00:21:53.852
  • to be scatteringas God's people;
  • 00:21:53.885 --> 00:21:55.854
  • this is a time for us to begathering as God's people.
  • 00:21:55.887 --> 00:22:00.125
  • Listen to me.
  • 00:22:00.158 --> 00:22:02.861
  • There are only two timesin the New Testament
  • 00:22:02.894 --> 00:22:04.563
  • where this expression"gathering" is used.
  • 00:22:04.596 --> 00:22:07.099
  • Once, it's used for Christiansgathering in the church,
  • 00:22:07.132 --> 00:22:09.768
  • and once it's used for whenwe gather together
  • 00:22:09.801 --> 00:22:12.437
  • with the Lord in his Coming.
  • 00:22:12.471 --> 00:22:14.506
  • And I'm convincedthat both are equally important.
  • 00:22:14.539 --> 00:22:17.376
  • God is looking forward to thetime when we gather with him
  • 00:22:17.409 --> 00:22:19.745
  • but, in the meantime,while we're waiting
  • 00:22:19.778 --> 00:22:21.947
  • for the return of Christ,we need to be gathering
  • 00:22:21.980 --> 00:22:24.583
  • with one another.
  • 00:22:24.616 --> 00:22:25.917
  • Let me just give youone last one.
  • 00:22:25.951 --> 00:22:27.252
  • I'd like to preach on all ofthem, but I don't have time.
  • 00:22:27.285 --> 00:22:29.121
  • The Bible says that as we'relooking for the Lord's return,
  • 00:22:30.088 --> 00:22:32.557
  • we should stay calmin our spirit.
  • 00:22:32.591 --> 00:22:35.727
  • It's not a time for anxietyand panic.
  • 00:22:35.761 --> 00:22:38.363
  • Did you know there wasanother time
  • 00:22:38.397 --> 00:22:39.731
  • in the New Testamentwhen the disciples were filled
  • 00:22:39.765 --> 00:22:42.734
  • with anxiety?
  • 00:22:42.768 --> 00:22:44.202
  • They'd begun to hear the rumorsthat Jesus was going
  • 00:22:44.236 --> 00:22:46.104
  • to leave them.
  • 00:22:46.138 --> 00:22:47.439
  • Jesus was all they knew.
  • 00:22:47.472 --> 00:22:49.274
  • He said he was gonna leaveand go to a place
  • 00:22:49.307 --> 00:22:51.576
  • and they didn't knowwhere it was and Jesus said
  • 00:22:51.610 --> 00:22:53.712
  • how could he tell 'em?
  • 00:22:53.745 --> 00:22:56.581
  • And they were filled with fearand filled with anxiety and then
  • 00:22:56.615 --> 00:22:59.885
  • Jesus said these words to them.
  • 00:22:59.918 --> 00:23:01.453
  • He said, "Let not your heartsbe troubled.
  • 00:23:01.486 --> 00:23:05.090
  • You believe in God,believe also in me.
  • 00:23:05.123 --> 00:23:08.427
  • In my Father's house are manymansions; and if it weren't so,
  • 00:23:08.460 --> 00:23:11.363
  • I would have told you.
  • 00:23:11.396 --> 00:23:12.898
  • Listen,I go to prepare a place for you.
  • 00:23:12.931 --> 00:23:15.634
  • And if I go and prepare a placefor you, I will come again
  • 00:23:15.667 --> 00:23:18.170
  • and receive you unto myself;that where I am,
  • 00:23:18.203 --> 00:23:21.273
  • there you may be also."
  • 00:23:21.306 --> 00:23:23.708
  • The Bible says you don't haveto be filled with anxiety.
  • 00:23:23.742 --> 00:23:27.045
  • Let your heart be calm.
  • 00:23:27.078 --> 00:23:28.647
  • It's all under control.
  • 00:23:28.680 --> 00:23:30.115
  • Almighty God's stillon the throne.
  • 00:23:30.148 --> 00:23:32.117
  • He's got his plan all laid outand he's coming back.
  • 00:23:32.150 --> 00:23:38.723
  • And the best newsin that passage of Scripture,
  • 00:23:38.757 --> 00:23:41.059
  • my friends, is this.
  • 00:23:41.092 --> 00:23:42.661
  • God loves you and he wants youto be where he is.
  • 00:23:42.694 --> 00:23:46.231
  • He is doing all of this for us.
  • 00:23:46.264 --> 00:23:48.266
  • Listen to the verse again.
  • 00:23:48.433 --> 00:23:49.768
  • "Let not your heart be troubled.
  • 00:23:49.801 --> 00:23:51.102
  • You believe in God,believe also in me.
  • 00:23:51.136 --> 00:23:53.538
  • In my Father's house are manymansions; if it were not so,
  • 00:23:53.572 --> 00:23:56.441
  • I would have told you.
  • 00:23:56.475 --> 00:23:57.776
  • I go to prepare a place for you.
  • 00:23:57.809 --> 00:24:01.880
  • And if I go and prepare a placefor you, I will come again
  • 00:24:01.913 --> 00:24:06.017
  • and receive you unto myself;that where I am,
  • 00:24:06.051 --> 00:24:09.921
  • there you may be also."
  • 00:24:09.955 --> 00:24:12.090
  • God is interested in you.
  • 00:24:12.123 --> 00:24:14.025
  • He wants you in heaven.
  • 00:24:14.059 --> 00:24:16.061
  • And that's why he's doingall of this.
  • 00:24:16.761 --> 00:24:19.264
  • You say, "Well, Pastor,I'm young and I have
  • 00:24:21.066 --> 00:24:23.335
  • lots of plansand I got some things
  • 00:24:23.368 --> 00:24:25.337
  • I wanna do before thisand I've got plenty of time."
  • 00:24:25.370 --> 00:24:29.107
  • No, you don't.
  • 00:24:29.140 --> 00:24:30.609
  • You have no guaranteeof a tomorrow.
  • 00:24:30.642 --> 00:24:33.545
  • If you were to die tonightand stand before Almighty God
  • 00:24:33.578 --> 00:24:35.981
  • and he were to say to you,"Why should I let you
  • 00:24:36.014 --> 00:24:38.383
  • into my heaven?"what would you say?
  • 00:24:38.416 --> 00:24:41.586
  • And if you cannot saywith certainty,
  • 00:24:41.620 --> 00:24:43.755
  • "Lord God, I cometo your heaven tonight with
  • 00:24:43.788 --> 00:24:46.525
  • the assurance that I belong herebecause I have trusted
  • 00:24:46.558 --> 00:24:49.060
  • Jesus Christ, your Son,as my Savior."

  • If you don't know that, do todaywhat you're gonna be thankful
