Sermon note (1st svc)
The Year of Greater Glory was preached earlier of the year. And how time flies. We are approaching year end again for Christmas!
Choose between life and death. Choose life!
All things are made by Him and through Him!
Full of grace and truth! R
Provoke the nation around and turn from idols to serve Him.
Even though Israel has forgotten God, He did not forget them.
If Israel knew the hour of visitation, the kingdom of God will come on earth.
Church is a mystery. When Israel rejected Jesus Christ, all our sins were involved.
Christ took away my sins! There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ!
Jesus wept over Jerusalem. 7 more years left, where great tribulation.
Jesus will come back for Israel! The rapture for church first.
God is reaching out to nation all over the world.
Jesus come back Savior for us, Judge to the world.
Jesus will judge. Everything that is evil will not go through.
The ruler will be someone who is kind, gentle, powerful. He is the Lion and the Lamb.
The Lord is my Shepherd, i will not lack. It is the job of Shepherd to take care of sheep. We are cared for and protected.
Jesus Himself will come back and rescue Israel. He will rule from Jerusalem.
Not one stone will be left unturn.
Jesus Predicts the Destruction of the Temple
Then Jesus went out and departed from the temple, and His disciples came up to show Him the buildings of the temple. And Jesus said to them, “ Do you not see all these things? Assuredly, I say to you, not one stone shall be left here upon another, that shall not be thrown down.”
- When will the temple be destroyed
- When will the sign of your coming
- When is the end of the age
The Destruction of Jerusalem
“ But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation is near. Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let those who are in the midst of her depart, and let not those who are in the country enter her. For these are the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled. But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! For there will be great distress in the land and wrath upon this people. And they will fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away captive into all nations. And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.
When Jesus return, He will return for the Savior of His people and Judge to the world.
In Matt 24:1-35, it was in Mount of Olives.
Kingdom against kingdom. Our great grandfathers saw 2 world war. Different races will fight with each other. Me and my family will be blessed in the dark ages.
He is talking about the nation of Israel, not the church. We r not looking forward to see the anti-Christ. The same one who open up the scroll.
Talk about the grace of God reaching out to man.
Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.
The rapture was not shared openly to the jewish people.
The Way, the Truth, and the Life
“ Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.
But he who endures to the end shall be saved.
The word Saved is very rich. The devil wanna u to believe in UFO.
The king is coming and he baptized those who believe. Repent! For the kingdom is at hand.
The King will set things right. There will be no more sickness.
The rapture does not wait for any event to be fulfilled. It can happen anytime.
We have a more sure world of prophesy.
2nd coming of Christ is for Israel and the judge of the world. But rapture is not the 2nd coming. Rapture is a caught up! He comes and snatch us up!
Get ready! The King is coming back!!
The verses are talking to the Jews. The verse mentioned Sabbath. Is spoken to the Jews not us. They still celebrate Sabbath.
The powers of the heaven will be shaken. Atomic energy will be spilt.
We will not be around in the tribulation! We are raptured by then!
We are justified by Christ and enjoy His good works.
So you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near—at the doors! Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.
2 Peter 3:3-4
knowing this first:that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.”
We are here to serve and enrich the church!
2 Peter 3:8-10
But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is 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 toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.
The Day of the Lord
But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.
The earth is 6000 years old.
We are the generation that saw the 2000 years!
The Lord shut the door of Noah Ark. When the Lord shut, even Noah could not open.
All earth has fallen. Look forward to the redemption! Not waiting to die.
For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. Not only that, but we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body.
We are destined to reign.
The one blessing outstanding is the redemption of our bodies!
Eagerly waiting for the redemption of our bodies!
1 Thess 4:13-18
1 Thessalonians 4:13-14
The Comfort of Christ’s Coming
But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus.
1 Thessalonians 4:17
Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.
It is ALWAYS be with the Lord. The Lord Himself will descend from heaven.
So it was, while they conversed and reasoned, that Jesus Himself drew near and went with them.
See the word HIMSELF. it is so near and close to Him
There is nothing in heaven that falls off. In heaven, all are young and energetic !!!
We are looking for Jesus! Not death.
so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation.
Live our life for His glory!
For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself.
(Philippians 3:20 AMP)
But we are citizens of the state (commonwealth, homeland) which is in heaven, and from it also we earnestly and patiently await [the coming of] the Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah) [as] Savior
Jesus come as Savior. Our body will be like His body.
1 Cor 15:51-58
1 Corinthians 15:51-52
Behold, I tell you a mystery:We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed— in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
Nothing can corrupt our bodies!!
1 Corinthians 15:55-56
“O Death, where is your sting?
O Hades, where is your victory?”
The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law.
He will come and all the earth will see Him come!
And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel, who also said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven.”
He will come back bodily in light manner!!
1 Corinthians 15:52
in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
Jesus is the Hope!!! 😉
