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.

That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.

Not of works, lest any man should boast.  "
