This Week's Sermon ( 10-17-17 )

" But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. 
Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.  Mark 13:32-33


" But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. 
For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. 
For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. 
But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.  "   1 Thessalonians 5:1-4

There is so much going on in the world these days that I have to talk about the return of Jesus.

There has recently been hurricanes of catastrophic proportion that has excelled any hurricane that has happened in the past.

There was a hurricane that hit Ireland recently, where there has never been a hurricane ever in history.

There was a fire in California recently that was the worst in California ever...even though fires are common in that state. 

Many church people are now wondering what is going on. They are wondering if Jesus might be returning soon.

I heard a sermon this past Sunday in which the pastor admitted that most of his life he has always quoted the verse;

But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.  "   Mark 13:32

not taking signs of the return of Jesus seriously.

But he admits, now, he is wondering if Jesus is coming back.

Jesus did say;

" And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; "   Luke 21:35

While there will be catastrophic events take place to indicate the return of Jesus, we still have to remember one thing that Paul said;

" For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.  "   1 Thessalonians 5:3

Even though, along with catastrophic events as we have been witnessing lately, this " peace and safety " is also prophesied to be part of the last days before Jesus returns and this prophecy of " peace and safety " has not happened yet.

According to Jesus it will be during this time that many christians will be slack, thinking the Lord delayeth His coming. 

It will be during this time of " peace and safety " that christians will lose sight of the return of Jesus and focus on worldly things. 

During this " peace and safety " is more than likely when Jesus will return in the rapture but we must also understand that the rapture is also a prophetic sign of the return of Jesus when He returns literally to the earth to fight in the battle of Armageddon and set up His thousand year kingdom here on earth.

Keep your faith in Jesus no matter what happens.

Jesus is returning soon.

This Week's Sermon ( 7-26-16 )

" And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.

And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel;

Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven. "   Acts 1:9-11

Yes, " this same Jesus " will come again, just as He left.

I was on Mt. Olivet in 1993 where Jesus ascended 2000 years ago.

While I was looking at the Eastern Gate of Jerusalem from the Mt. of Olives I was thinking about when Jesus returns.

And, who is " this same Jesus " ?

He is God in the flesh.

Jesus clearly said;

" I and my Father are one. "    John 10:30

My friend, every religion on earth claims to be the only way to Heaven.

Jesus made the same claim.

" Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no one cometh unto the Father but by me. "   John 14:6

Within world religions, there is a compromise of their claim to be the only way to Heaven as some of its leaders will say, in the end, all people will end up in Heaven.

This is contrary to the teaching of the Holy Bible .

Jesus said hell is eternal, not temporary, and Jesus also said there will be more people end up in eternal hell than will make it to Heaven.

" Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:

Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. "   Matthew 7:13-14

So again, we choose to believe who and what we want.

I choose to believe Jesus.

When it comes time to die or when Jesus returns, I hope all of us will rest our faith in Jesus.

Yes, Jesus is God in the flesh... God, who came to earth and was born of a virgin, was made of the seed of Abraham, grew up as we do, was tempted as we are, felt physically tired and needed sleep as we do, got hungry as we do, knew what grief, sorrow and sadness is like as we do, knew physical pain as we do, and died for us.

God died in human flesh and was resurrected from the dead bodily as we will be when Jesus returns.

Jesus clearly said after His resurrection;

" Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have. "   Luke 24:39

John said about the return of Jesus;

" Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. "   1 John 3:2

I hope Jesus comes today.

The Lord bless you.

This Week's Sermon: ( 7-5-16 )

" Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.  "   Revelation 1:7

" Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.  "   1 John 2:18

" But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.  "  2 Peter 3:8-9


Before my wife died, she told me she thought Jesus was coming soon.

John wrote in the verse I quoted that Jesus will return plainly visible for all to see.

John also said that even though there are many antichrists, there is specifically one that will come that obviously was prophesied about. With the situation in the Middle East today, I have no doubt he is soon to come within the political realm and do what the Bible prophesied he will do.

Peter said the Lord is not slow in coming back, even though Peter, along with the other disciples of Jesus and those who followed and believed in Jesus 2000 years ago, were looking for and expecting Jesus to return even back in their day.

I will continue this discussion about the return of Jesus soon.

Personally, I wish He would come today.

The Lord bless you.

This Week's Sermon: ( 5-18-16 )

" And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. "   Revelation 13:8


God wanted to become a human being even before He created this planet.

Before the world began God had already planned that He would become man and die for us.

In God's way of thinking it was aready done...even back then.

Incredible.

Jesus existed before this planet was created.

Jesus said;

" And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was. "   John 17:5

However, it wasn't until what God calls the latter times, that He became a human being.


My friend, always remember what Jesus said about Himself;

" I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.    John 14:6

This does not mean that Jesus is one of many ways to Heaven, as some believe.

This does not mean getting to Heaven requires Jesus plus someone or something else, as many believe.

What Jesus said means literally Jesus, and Him alone, is the only way to Heaven.

We either believe this or we don't.

The choice is ours.
