Sermons on End Times

FEASTS = Divine Appointments

THE IMPORTANCE OF THE FEASTS While studying the book of Revelation, a major theme unfolds among the Seven Churches of Asia. Judges 3:7 (GW) The people of Israel did what the Lord considered evil. They forgot the Lord their God and served other gods and goddesses—the Baals and the Asherahs. Satan was attempting to draw the Church away from the “Feats of the Lord” and replace them with Baal’s celebrations. 1. The Feasts foreshadow Messianic events. Colossians 2:16-17 (NKJV) So…

Endure till the End Part 4

THE POWER OF FRIENDSHIP Hebrews 3:12-14 (NIRV) Brothers and sisters . . . Do not let an unbelieving heart turn you away [apostatize] from the living God. But build one another up [encourage, strengthen, comfort] every day. Do it as long as there is still time. Then none of you will become stubborn. You won’t be fooled by sin’s tricks. We belong to Christ if we hold tightly to the faith we had at first. But we must hold it…

Endure till the End Part 3

THE PATH OF APOSTASY Hebrews 4:14-16 (NIV) Since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that…

Endure till the End Part 2

WHAT IS APOSTASY Nothing can separate us from God’s love (Rom. 8:38-39). Nothing can pluck us out of God’s hand (John 10:27-29). God will never cast us away (John 6:37). God opened a door no one can shut (Revelation 3:8). 1 Timothy 4:1 (DARBY) The Spirit speaks expressly, that in latter times some shall apostatise from the faith, giving their mind to deceiving spirits and teachings of demons. Apostasy is . . . willful rejection of Christ . . .…

Endure till the End Part 1

OUR POSITION IN CHRIST Ephesians 2:8-9 (NIV) For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast. Romans 9:15-16 (LDB) God told Moses, “I will be merciful to whomever I wish. If I wish to show kindness to someone, I will. This shows that it was not we who had intense desire and put forth great effort to be saved,…

Truth Over Trend Part 3

THE BIBLE’S PLOT – MIRROR IMAGE Genesis 1-2 – Creation! God and man in Paradise. Mankind enjoyed the presence of God. We experience only good (no pain, sorrow, suffering). The closest English word we have for the Greek and Hebrew word “paradise” is resort. Genesis 3-5 – Satan and sin enter. Sin separates. That’s why Adam hid from God. Romans 6:23 (NIV) The wages of sin is death [separation], but the gift of God is eternal life [union] in Christ…

Truth Over Trend Part 2

SATAN’S PATH OF DECEPTION 2 Timothy 3:16-17 (MSG) Every part of Scripture is God-breathed and useful—showing us truth, exposing our rebellion, correcting our mistakes, training us to live God’s way. Through the Word we are put together and shaped up for the tasks God has for us. All Scripture is God-breathed and is valuable . . . – CJB Error begins when we start devaluing parts of Scripture. 1. Devalue the Old Testament. Why devalue it? Because we’re now under…

Living in the Last Days Part 5

WHAT HEAVEN WILL BE LIKE In order to understand “life in Heaven,” we first need to clarify Jesus’s words to the Sadducees. Luke 20:34-36 (EXB) “On earth, people [ The children of this age] marry and are given to someone to marry. But those who will be worthy to be raised from the dead and live again [of the age to come and the resurrection] will not marry, nor will they be given to someone to marry. [For] In that life…

THE RAPTURE AND YOUR CHILDREN What can we expect when we are raptured? Revelation 21:3-5 (NIRV) God now makes his home with the people. He will live with them. They will be his people. And God himself will be with them and be their God. ‘He will wipe away every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death.’ (Isaiah 25:8) And there will be no more sadness. There will be no more crying or pain. Things are no…

Living in the Last Days Part 3

ARE YOU RAPTURE READY? Matthew 24:39-44 (DIST) The Great Flood came without any signs, so, before the Judgment there will be a “Rapture” – without any signs . . . . The “Rapture” will be a blessing only for the born-again. Those who reject reality and therefore do not prepare to meet God will miss the “Rapture.” Jesus’s 4 Rapture Parables Faithful or Unfaithful Servants (Matt 24:44-51) Are you faithful to your kingdom assignment? This isn’t about doing “more,” it’s…

Living in the Last Days Part 2

THE 7 SEALS – THE BIRTH PAINS Roughly 80% of Bible prophecy is already fulfilled. Roughly 20% of Bible prophecy is to be fulfilled. Acts 2:16-17 (NIV) This is what was spoken by the prophet Joel: “In the last days, God says, ‘I will pour out my Spirit on all people.’” The “Last Days” is simply the final dispensation before the return of Jesus. Revelation 1:9 (NKJV) I, John, both your brother and companion in the tribulation . . .…

Living in the Last Days Part 1

BIBLE PROPHECY SIMPLIFIED Bible prophecy is history written in advance. Isaiah 46:10 (NIV) I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say, ‘My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please.’ About 28% of the Bible is prophetic. It contains around 2,500 prophecies. Roughly 2,000 (80%) are fulfilled. Roughly 500 (20%) remain unfulfilled. Isaiah 48:3-6 (NLT) Long ago I told you what was going to happen. Then suddenly…
