  • -THIS PRESENTATION WAS BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE FRIENDS OF THE
  • 00:00:02.160 --> 00:00:04.290
  • AMAZING FACTS MINISTRY.
  • 00:00:05.020 --> 00:00:09.030
  • -ONE OF THE LOUDEST SOUNDS THE WORLD HAS EVER HEARD WAS THE
  • 00:00:09.060 --> 00:00:12.000
  • TERRIFIC VOLCANIC EXPLOSION OF KRAKATOA IN SOUTHWESTERN
  • 00:00:12.030 --> 00:00:15.250
  • INDONESIA IN 1883. THE BLAST WAS THE EQUIVALENT TO
  • 00:00:15.280 --> 00:00:20.180
  • ABOUT 100 MEGATONS OF TNT AND COULD BE HEARD OVER 3.000 MILES
  • 00:00:20.210 --> 00:00:25.130
  • AWAY ON ISLANDS IN THE INDIAN OCEAN.
  • 00:00:25.160 --> 00:00:28.070
  • MORE THAN 36.000 PEOPLE WERE KILLED AND 165 COASTAL VILLAGES
  • 00:00:28.100 --> 00:00:33.110
  • DESTROYED, MOSTLY FROM THE 120-FOOT HIGH TSUNAMI THAT
  • 00:00:33.140 --> 00:00:38.020
  • ROLLED IN AT OVER 300 MILES AN HOUR.
  • 00:00:38.050 --> 00:00:41.120
  • THIS DEVASTATED EVERYTHING IN ITS PATH, HURLING HUGE CORAL
  • 00:00:41.150 --> 00:00:44.220
  • BLOCKS ASHORE. THE TREMENDOUS EXPLOSION ALSO
  • 00:00:44.250 --> 00:00:48.040
  • BLEW FIVE CUBIC MILES OF DEBRIS INTO THE ATMOSPHERE, CREATING
  • 00:00:48.070 --> 00:00:52.280
  • A DUST CLOUD THAT BLOCKED SUNLIGHT, COOLED CLIMATES,
  • 00:00:53.010 --> 00:00:56.180
  • AND, FOR A FEW YEARS, PRODUCED BRILLIANT RED SUNSETS THAT WERE
  • 00:00:56.210 --> 00:01:00.220
  • SO INTENSE, PEOPLE OFTEN THOUGHT THERE WAS A FIRE ON THE HORIZON.
  • 00:01:00.250 --> 00:01:04.200
  • THE ERUPTION OF KRAKATOA WAS ONE OF THE LOUDEST AND MOST POWERFUL
  • 00:01:04.230 --> 00:01:08.230
  • VISIBLE EVENTS IN MODERN TIMES, BUT DID YOU KNOW THE BOOK OF
  • 00:01:08.260 --> 00:01:12.280
  • REVELATION PICTURES THE SECOND COMING OF JESUS AS EVEN LOUDER.
  • 00:01:13.010 --> 00:01:17.070
  • IT SAYS THERE'LL BE A TRUMPET AND A ROAR AND A SHOUT.
  • 00:01:17.100 --> 00:01:20.250
  • SO JOIN ME NOW AS WE TAKE A CLOSER LOOK AT WHAT THE BIBLE
  • 00:01:20.280 --> 00:01:24.090
  • REALLY SAYS ABOUT THE RETURN OF CHRIST.
  • 00:01:24.120 --> 00:01:31.230
  • -SO, OUR STUDY TODAY IS TALKING ABOUT WHEN THE KING RETURNS AND
  • 00:01:31.260 --> 00:01:35.290
  • WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT SOME OF THE SIGNS OF CHRIST COMING -
  • 00:01:36.020 --> 00:01:39.120
  • WE'RE NOT GOING TO GIVE YOU A DATE FOR THE LORD'S RETURN, BUT
  • 00:01:39.150 --> 00:01:43.250
  • WE ARE GOING TO TALK ABOUT SOME OF THE MISUNDERSTANDINGS IN THE
  • 00:01:43.280 --> 00:01:46.270
  • CHRISTIAN WORLD REGARDING HOW JESUS IS COMING BACK, BECAUSE
  • 00:01:47.000 --> 00:01:50.020
  • THAT IS GOING TO SET MANY PEOPLE UP FOR A MAJOR DECEPTION.
  • 00:01:50.050 --> 00:01:54.070
  • AND SO, WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND THIS SUBJECT.
  • 00:01:54.100 --> 00:01:55.290
  • FIRST QUESTION: WHAT SOLEMN WARNING DOES JESUS GIVE ABOUT
  • 00:01:56.020 --> 00:02:00.030
  • HIS SECOND COMING? "FOR MANY WILL COME IN MY NAME,
  • 00:02:00.060 --> 00:02:03.170
  • SAYING, 'I AM THE CHRIST,' AND WILL DECEIVE MANY."
  • 00:02:03.200 --> 00:02:06.270
  • NOW, THAT VERSE CAN BE UNDERSTOOD A COUPLE OF DIFFERENT
  • 00:02:07.000 --> 00:02:08.280
  • WAYS AND STILL BE CORRECT. SOME ARE GOING TO COME AND
  • 00:02:09.010 --> 00:02:13.160
  • THEY'RE GOING TO CLAIM TO BE JESUS.
  • 00:02:13.190 --> 00:02:15.070
  • AND THEN THERE'S GOING TO COME AND SAY, 'HE IS CHRIST,' BUT
  • 00:02:15.100 --> 00:02:17.020
  • THEY'LL DECEIVE PEOPLE. MANY WILL COME, THEY COME IN HIS
  • 00:02:17.050 --> 00:02:19.290
  • NAME, THEY SAY HE'S CHRIST, AND THEN THEY DECEIVE.
  • 00:02:20.020 --> 00:02:23.260
  • AND THEN THERE ARE SOME THAT COME AND THEY SAY, 'I AM
  • 00:02:23.290 --> 00:02:26.200
  • CHRIST.' AND SATAN IS GOING TO IMPERSONATE JESUS IN THE LAST
  • 00:02:26.230 --> 00:02:31.060
  • DAYS AND YOU CAN ALSO READ ON, IT SAYS, "FOR THERE SHALL ARISE
  • 00:02:31.090 --> 00:02:37.020
  • FALSE CHRISTS AND FALSE PROPHETS AND THEY WILL SHOW GREAT SIGNS
  • 00:02:37.050 --> 00:02:40.250
  • AND WONDERS." NOW, I'M NOT SO WORRIED ABOUT
  • 00:02:40.280 --> 00:02:45.090
  • KOOKS THAT SAY THAT THEY'RE JESUS.
  • 00:02:45.120 --> 00:02:49.060
  • THERE'S PROBABLY THOUSANDS OF THEM WALKING THE WORLD TODAY.
  • 00:02:49.090 --> 00:02:52.020
  • I SAW A NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC REPORT ABOUT HALF A DOZEN PEOPLE
  • 00:02:52.050 --> 00:02:55.230
  • AROUND THE WORLD THAT HAVE A SMALL GROUP OF WORSHIPERS AND
  • 00:02:55.260 --> 00:02:57.280
  • THEY CLAIM TO BE JESUS. YOU'VE GOT ONE IN SOUTH AMERICA,
  • 00:02:58.010 --> 00:03:01.290
  • YOU'VE GOT ONE IN EUROPE, AND OTHER PLACES AND THEY
  • 00:03:02.020 --> 00:03:05.150
  • HAVE THEIR FOLLOWERS. I MET SOMEBODY THAT CLAIMED TO
  • 00:03:05.180 --> 00:03:09.140
  • BE JESUS AND IT WAS A LITTLE UNNERVING BECAUSE I WAS LIVING
  • 00:03:09.170 --> 00:03:13.180
  • BY MYSELF IN THE MOUNTAINS IN A CAVE AND A GUY CAME HIKING UP
  • 00:03:13.210 --> 00:03:18.120
  • INTO MY CAVEYARD - I HAD A YARD - (LAUGHTER) AND - I MEAN, YOU
  • 00:03:18.150 --> 00:03:23.150
  • CAME OVER THE ROCKS AND YOU'RE IN MY YARD.
  • 00:03:23.180 --> 00:03:26.140
  • HE WAS ABOUT SIX FEET TALL. HE HAD SHOULDER-LENGTH BROWN
  • 00:03:26.170 --> 00:03:29.270
  • HAIR, HAZEL EYES, MUSTACHE AND A BEARD.
  • 00:03:30.000 --> 00:03:34.160
  • AND I'M FRIENDLY, I SAT DOWN, WE TALKED A LITTLE BIT.
  • 00:03:34.190 --> 00:03:37.270
  • IN THE PROCESS OF CONVERSATION HE ASKED ME IF I WAS A BELIEVER.
  • 00:03:38.000 --> 00:03:40.150
  • I SAID, 'WELL, YEAH, I JUST READ THE BIBLE.
  • 00:03:40.180 --> 00:03:42.050
  • I JUST ACCEPTED JESUS.' AND HE SAID, 'I AM JESUS.' (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:03:42.080 --> 00:03:48.060
  • AND I WASN'T SURE I HEARD HIM RIGHT AND HE SAYS, 'I AM JESUS.'
  • 00:03:48.090 --> 00:03:54.040
  • AND THEN I THOUGHT, 'WELL I'VE GOT SOME SPANISH FRIENDS NAMED
  • 00:03:54.070 --> 00:03:57.150
  • JESUS. I SAID, 'YOU MEAN YOUR NAME IS JESUS? (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:03:57.180 --> 00:04:00.200
  • HE SAID, 'NO, I AM JESUS.' AND THAT WAS A LITTLE TROUBLING
  • 00:04:00.230 --> 00:04:06.230
  • BECAUSE I THOUGHT, 'THIS GUY'S CRAZY AND I'M UP HERE IN
  • 00:04:06.260 --> 00:04:10.120
  • THE MOUNTAINS BY MYSELF.' AND THEN I THOUGHT, 'WELL, I DON'T
  • 00:04:10.150 --> 00:04:12.290
  • WANT TO CALL HIM CRAZY BECAUSE WHAT IF HE IS JESUS?
  • 00:04:13.020 --> 00:04:14.160
  • I'D LIKE TO KNOW. I'VE GOT A LOT OF QUESTIONS.'
  • 00:04:14.190 --> 00:04:17.170
  • AND SO, I STARTED SAYING, 'WELL, NOW, DOESN'T IT SAY IN THE BIBLE
  • 00:04:17.200 --> 00:04:22.110
  • WHEN YOU COME, LIKE EVERY EYE'S GOING TO SEE YOU
  • 00:04:22.140 --> 00:04:24.100
  • COMING IN THE CLOUDS?' (LAUGHTER) HE SAID, 'THAT'S HOW
  • 00:04:24.130 --> 00:04:27.090
  • I'M COMING FOR THE WORLD AT LARGE, BUT I'M COMING FOR
  • 00:04:27.120 --> 00:04:29.070
  • CERTAIN INDIVIDUALS FIRST.' AND HE HAD AN ANSWER FOR EVERYTHING.
  • 00:04:29.100 --> 00:04:33.170
  • HE WAS TRYING TO RECRUIT ME AS A DISCIPLE.
  • 00:04:33.200 --> 00:04:35.130
  • (LAUGHTER) AND SO, I HUMORED HIM FOR A FEW DAYS - YOU KNOW, NICE
  • 00:04:35.160 --> 00:04:41.210
  • AND, YOU KNOW, HE STAYED WITH ME.
  • 00:04:41.240 --> 00:04:43.210
  • HE ATE ALL MY FOOD. HE WAS A SLOB.
  • 00:04:43.240 --> 00:04:46.020
  • HE DIDN'T CLEAN ANYTHING UP. AND, FINALLY, I HAD TO
  • 00:04:46.050 --> 00:04:48.140
  • EVICT JESUS FROM MY CAVE. (RAUCOUS LAUGHTER) A FEW DAYS
  • 00:04:48.170 --> 00:04:54.200
  • LATER I SAW HIM IN TOWN AND HE HAD FOUND AN APOSTLE.
  • 00:04:54.230 --> 00:04:57.100
  • HE WAS WALKING AROUND - AND I FELT MUCH BETTER BECAUSE ABOUT
  • 00:04:57.130 --> 00:05:01.030
  • TWO WEEKS LATER, I SAW HIM AGAIN.
  • 00:05:01.060 --> 00:05:02.230
  • HE HAD GOTTEN IN A FIGHT WITH SOMEBODY AND THEY KNOCKED OUT
  • 00:05:02.260 --> 00:05:04.270
  • HIS FRONT TOOTH AND WE ALL KNOW JESUS HAS ALL HIS TEETH, SO THAT
  • 00:05:05.000 --> 00:05:08.270
  • SETTLED IT FOR ME. (LAUGHTER) I FELT MUCH BETTER AT THAT POINT.
  • 00:05:09.000 --> 00:05:14.240
  • SO I'M NOT WORRIED ABOUT THOSE KOOKY PEOPLE, BUT WHEN SATAN
  • 00:05:14.270 --> 00:05:19.040
  • IMPERSONATES CHRIST, IT'S GOING TO BE VERY COMPELLING AND
  • 00:05:19.070 --> 00:05:24.020
  • THERE'LL BE AN EMOTIONAL POWER AND THERE'LL BE SIGNS AND
  • 00:05:24.050 --> 00:05:26.150
  • WONDERS AND HE'LL QUOTE THE BIBLE.
  • 00:05:26.180 --> 00:05:32.090
  • WHAT'LL PREVENT THE RIGHTEOUS FROM BEING DECEIVED?
  • 00:05:32.120 --> 00:05:35.020
  • YOU READ IN ISAIAH 8, VERSE 20 - IT'S GOING TO BE IN THE BIBLE -
  • 00:05:35.050 --> 00:05:39.070
  • ACCORDING TO THE LAW AND THE TESTIMONY, IF THEY SPEAK
  • 00:05:39.100 --> 00:05:42.140
  • NOT ACCORDING TO THIS WORD, THERE'S NO LIGHT IN THEM.
  • 00:05:42.170 --> 00:05:46.070
  • WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO JUDGE EVERYTHING BY THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:05:46.100 --> 00:05:49.110
  • THAT'S WHY I'VE TOLD YOU THAT WE NEED TO REALLY KNOW OUR BIBLES
  • 00:05:49.140 --> 00:05:52.290
  • BECAUSE JESUS TELLS US THAT THE DECEPTION IS GOING TO BE SO
  • 00:05:53.020 --> 00:05:55.270
  • COMPELLING THAT, IF IT WERE POSSIBLE, EVEN THE VERY ELECT
  • 00:05:56.000 --> 00:05:59.000
  • WOULD BE DECEIVED. SO WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO BE
  • 00:05:59.030 --> 00:06:01.210
  • CAREFULLY ROOTED IN WHAT WE BELIEVE. WELL, IF YOU HEARD THAT
  • 00:06:01.240 --> 00:06:06.100
  • THERE WAS SOMEBODY OUT THERE AND THEY'RE CLAIMING TO BE JESUS,
  • 00:06:06.130 --> 00:06:08.170
  • WOULD IT BE SAFE TO GO AND SEE THEM?
  • 00:06:08.200 --> 00:06:10.050
  • -NO. -WHAT DOES THE LORD SAY?
  • 00:06:10.080 --> 00:06:12.250
  • HE SAYS IN MATTHEW 24, VERSES 26, "WHEREFORE, IF THEY SAY UNTO
  • 00:06:12.280 --> 00:06:16.250
  • YOU, 'BEHOLD, HE IS IN THE DESERT.' GO NOT FORTH."
  • 00:06:16.280 --> 00:06:20.140
  • DON'T EVEN LOOK. 'HEY, TURN ON CHANNEL 13 - JESUS
  • 00:06:20.170 --> 00:06:24.000
  • HAS JUST APPEARED IN JERUSALEM.' I WOULDN'T EVEN TURN IT ON
  • 00:06:24.030 --> 00:06:28.230
  • BECAUSE THE DEVIL CAN HYPNOTIZE. AND, YOU KNOW, YOU HYPNOTIZE
  • 00:06:28.260 --> 00:06:31.250
  • A PERSON WITH THEIR AUDIO AND THEIR VISUAL NERVES.
  • 00:06:31.280 --> 00:06:36.060
  • THE OPTIC AND THE AUDITORY NERVES AND TELEVISION KIND OF
  • 00:06:36.090 --> 00:06:40.220
  • REACHES BOTH. AND NOW THEY'VE GOT TV
  • 00:06:40.250 --> 00:06:44.090
  • IT'S LIKE HIGH RESOLUTION. THEY'RE GETTING 3D - I MEAN,
  • 00:06:44.120 --> 00:06:47.130
  • IT'S GOING TO BE VERY POWERFUL. DON'T DO IT.
  • 00:06:47.160 --> 00:06:50.210
  • WHAT CAN WE KNOW ABOUT THE TIME OF JESUS' RETURN?
  • 00:06:50.240 --> 00:06:55.010
  • NOW, I'M GOING TO SPEND SOME TIME ON THIS QUESTION SO JUST
  • 00:06:55.040 --> 00:06:56.250
  • GET COMFORTABLE BECAUSE I WANT TO MAKE A FEW THINGS CLEAR:
  • 00:06:56.280 --> 00:07:00.050
  • FIRST OF ALL, REGARDING A SPECIFIC TIME OF HIS COMING,
  • 00:07:00.080 --> 00:07:03.190
  • JESUS COULD NOT BE MISUNDERSTOOD: "BUT OF THAT DAY
  • 00:07:03.220 --> 00:07:07.010
  • AND THAT HOUR KNOWETH NO MAN." THAT SHOULD SETTLE
  • 00:07:07.040 --> 00:07:10.190
  • IT FOR EVERYBODY. SO, IF SOMEONE COMES TO YOU AND
  • 00:07:10.220 --> 00:07:13.030
  • THEY SAY, 'WELL, I KNOW MOST PEOPLE DON'T KNOW, BUT NEAR THE
  • 00:07:13.060 --> 00:07:15.050
  • END WE'RE GOING TO FIGURE IT OUT.
  • 00:07:15.080 --> 00:07:16.240
  • AND I'VE DONE SOME CALCULATING AND I DON'T KNOW THE DAY AND THE
  • 00:07:16.270 --> 00:07:19.090
  • HOUR, BUT I KNOW THE MONTH.' AND I'VE HEARD ALL KINDS OF STRANGE
  • 00:07:19.120 --> 00:07:23.120
  • THINGS. WHY WOULD YOU TRY TO PICK THE DAY?
  • 00:07:23.150 --> 00:07:28.020
  • WOULD YOU WAIT 'TIL THE LAST MINUTE TO GET READY?
  • 00:07:28.050 --> 00:07:30.140
  • HE SAID HE'S COMING BACK. HE COULD COME FOR YOU TOMORROW.
  • 00:07:30.170 --> 00:07:33.290
  • BECAUSE IF YOU DIE, YOUR NEXT CONSCIOUS THOUGHT IS THE
  • 00:07:34.020 --> 00:07:37.140
  • RESURRECTION AND SO WE NEED TO BE READY HOW OFTEN?
  • 00:07:37.170 --> 00:07:39.240
  • -ALWAYS. -JESUS SAID, 'BE READY ALWAYS
  • 00:07:39.270 --> 00:07:42.250
  • LEST THAT DAY OVERTAKE YOU AS A THIEF.'
  • 00:07:42.280 --> 00:07:45.200
  • AND A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE BEEN OVERTAKEN AS A THIEF ALREADY.
  • 00:07:45.230 --> 00:07:49.170
  • AND SO, WE NEED TO BE READY.
  • 00:07:49.200 --> 00:07:51.080
  • SOME OF YOU REMEMBER HAROLD CAMPING - FAMILY RADIO - I
  • 00:07:51.110 --> 00:07:56.070
  • TALKED TO HIM ONCE OR TWICE ON THE RADIO.
  • 00:07:56.100 --> 00:07:58.220
  • MATTER OF FACT, AMAZING FACTS INTERVIEWED HIM NOT TOO LONG
  • 00:07:58.250 --> 00:08:01.040
  • BEFORE HE DIED, BECAUSE HE WAS SETTING A DATE.
  • 00:08:01.070 --> 00:08:04.000
  • AND, YOU KNOW, I THINK HE WAS SINCERE, BUT HE WAS WRONG.
  • 00:08:04.030 --> 00:08:07.290
  • A LOT OF PEOPLE GAVE EVERYTHING THEY HAD - THEY INVESTED IN HIS
  • 00:08:08.020 --> 00:08:10.080
  • MINISTRY TO GET THE WORD OUT THAT JESUS WAS COMING.
  • 00:08:10.110 --> 00:08:12.230
  • WHAT WAS IT, MAY 21, 2011? AND, OF COURSE,
  • 00:08:12.260 --> 00:08:16.260
  • IT DIDN'T HAPPEN. THAT WAS THE SECOND OR THIRD
  • 00:08:16.290 --> 00:08:18.190
  • TIME HE HAD PREDICTED THE DAY AND THE HOUR OF
  • 00:08:18.220 --> 00:08:20.220
  • THE LORD'S COMING. AND, YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:08:20.250 --> 00:08:22.220
  • I'VE GOT A SURPRISE FOR YOU. EVERY PASTOR AND EVANGELIST THAT
  • 00:08:22.250 --> 00:08:26.230
  • HAS PICKED THE DATE FOR THE LORD'S COMING HAS
  • 00:08:26.260 --> 00:08:29.010
  • BEEN WRONG SO FAR. (LAUGHTER) YOU REALIZE THAT?
  • 00:08:29.040 --> 00:08:32.060
  • I'M TALKING ABOUT THE DATES THAT HAVE PASSED.
  • 00:08:32.090 --> 00:08:34.120
  • AND SO, YOU DON'T WANT TO BE GOING DOWN THAT ROAD.
  • 00:08:34.150 --> 00:08:37.090
  • BUT WHILE WE DON'T KNOW THE DAY AND THE HOUR, CAN WE KNOW WHEN
  • 00:08:37.120 --> 00:08:40.110
  • IT'S NEAR? -AMEN.
  • 00:08:40.140 --> 00:08:42.010
  • -YES. -JESUS IS PRETTY CLEAR.
  • 00:08:42.040 --> 00:08:43.200
  • MATTHEW 24, VERSE 33, "WHEN YOU SEE ALL THESE THINGS, KNOW THAT
  • 00:08:43.230 --> 00:08:49.130
  • IT IS NEAR, EVEN AT THE DOORS." THERE ARE GOING TO BE SIGNS
  • 00:08:49.160 --> 00:08:52.170
  • WHERE WE CAN KNOW THAT IT IS NEAR.
  • 00:08:52.200 --> 00:08:54.180
  • AND WHAT ARE SOME OF THOSE SIGNS?
  • 00:08:54.210 --> 00:08:57.060
  • WELL, THERE'S QUITE A FEW. FIRST OF ALL, JESUS SAYS, IN
  • 00:08:57.090 --> 00:08:58.240
  • MATTHEW 24, THERE'LL BE WARS AND RUMORS OF WARS.
  • 00:08:58.270 --> 00:09:05.020
  • WELL, WE'VE HAD WARS ALL THROUGH HISTORY AND CERTAINLY, NOW,
  • 00:09:05.050 --> 00:09:09.110
  • WE'VE GOT RUMORS OF WAR. DO YOU KNOW, JUST A LITTLE
  • 00:09:09.140 --> 00:09:12.250
  • AMAZING FACT FOR YOU, THAT THE WORLD SPENDS OVER 100 MILLION
  • 00:09:12.280 --> 00:09:18.270
  • DOLLARS AN HOUR ON SOLDIERS, AMMUNITION, AND WAR MACHINES?
  • 00:09:19.000 --> 00:09:26.290
  • WOULDN'T YOU LIKE TO HAVE JUST A LITTLE PIECE OF THAT?
  • 00:09:27.020 --> 00:09:29.290
  • 100 MILLION DOLLARS AN HOUR ON INTERNATIONAL MILITARY
  • 00:09:30.020 --> 00:09:35.270
  • EXPENDITURES. THE BIBLE SAYS THERE'LL BE
  • 00:09:36.000 --> 00:09:38.290
  • POLITICAL INSTABILITY - PEOPLE'S HEARTS WILL BE FAILING FOR FEAR
  • 00:09:39.020 --> 00:09:43.090
  • - THE SEA AND THE WAVES ROARING. AND WE SEE THAT NOW.
  • 00:09:43.120 --> 00:09:46.120
  • THERE'S JUST SO MUCH VOLATILITY AND POLITICAL INSTABILITY AND
  • 00:09:46.150 --> 00:09:50.170
  • PROBLEMS IN THE MIDDLE EAST AND THERE HAVE BEEN FOR YEARS.
  • 00:09:50.200 --> 00:09:56.070
  • JESUS SAID THERE'LL BE PESTILENCE - THAT'S PLAGUES -
  • 00:09:56.100 --> 00:09:59.230
  • AND VARIOUS KINDS OF DISEASE. AND WE ALL KNOW ABOUT THE EBOLA
  • 00:09:59.260 --> 00:10:03.140
  • CRISIS THAT THEY HAD A LITTLE WHILE AGO.
  • 00:10:03.170 --> 00:10:05.280
  • BUT, YOU KNOW, I THINK, REALLY, WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS TO BE
  • 00:10:06.010 --> 00:10:10.000
  • CONCERNED ABOUT WHEN IT COMES TO A PLAGUE IS SOMETHING AS SIMPLE
  • 00:10:10.030 --> 00:10:14.070
  • AS A FLU. DO YOU KNOW THAT DURING WORLD
  • 00:10:14.100 --> 00:10:17.100
  • WAR I, WHAT KILLED THE MOST PEOPLE WAS NOT THE BATTLES - AND
  • 00:10:17.130 --> 00:10:24.010
  • THEY WERE BRUTAL - OF WORLD WAR 1, IT WAS THE 1918 FLU EPIDEMIC
  • 00:10:24.040 --> 00:10:28.170
  • THAT KILLED 40 MILLION PEOPLE THAT YEAR.
  • 00:10:28.200 --> 00:10:33.120
  • AND, RIGHT NOW, THEY SAY THAT THERE'S THE POTENTIAL OF ANOTHER
  • 00:10:33.150 --> 00:10:36.010
  • STRAIN OF THAT THAT IS RESISTANT TO [TREATMENT] AND THE ABILITY
  • 00:10:36.040 --> 00:10:40.100
  • FOR US TO SPREAD THAT WITH INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL - YOU GET
  • 00:10:40.130 --> 00:10:43.160
  • ON AN AIRPLANE IN A TIN CAN WITH ALL THESE OTHER PEOPLE AND IT'S
  • 00:10:43.190 --> 00:10:47.060
  • HARD NOT TO PICK SOMETHING UP AND TO TRANSMIT IT EVERYWHERE.
  • 00:10:47.090 --> 00:10:52.210
  • I DON'T WORRY ABOUT THOSE THINGS, I'M JUST SAYING THESE
  • 00:10:52.240 --> 00:10:54.130
  • ARE SOME OF THE SIGNS. HE SAID THERE'LL BE PLAGUES,
  • 00:10:54.160 --> 00:10:57.050
  • THERE'LL BE NATURAL DISASTERS. BETWEEN 2004 AND 2014 18 - AND
  • 00:10:57.080 --> 00:11:04.250
  • THIS IS FROM THE GEOLOGICAL SOCIETY OF AMERICA - 18
  • 00:11:04.280 --> 00:11:07.200
  • EARTHQUAKES WITH A MAGNITUDE OF 8.0 OR MORE RATTLED SUBDUCTION
  • 00:11:07.230 --> 00:11:12.290
  • ZONES AROUND THE GLOBE. THAT'S AN INCREASE OF 265 PERCENT OVER
  • 00:11:13.020 --> 00:11:18.180
  • THE AVERAGE RATE OF THE PREVIOUS CENTURY." AND SO, THEY'RE SEEING
  • 00:11:18.210 --> 00:11:23.020
  • AN ACCELERATION OF THE PROBLEMS. NOW, BEFORE I GO ANY FARTHER,
  • 00:11:23.050 --> 00:11:25.170
  • LET ME TELL WHY THESE SIGNS MATTER.
  • 00:11:25.200 --> 00:11:29.200
  • WE'VE ALWAYS HAD WARS. THERE'S ALWAYS BEEN PLAGUES -
  • 00:11:29.230 --> 00:11:32.050
  • YOU HAD THE BLACK DEATH - YOU'VE HAD PROBLEMS IN THE ENVIRONMENT.
  • 00:11:32.080 --> 00:11:35.270
  • THERE'S, YOU KNOW, PROBLEMS WITH EARTHQUAKES AND NATURAL
  • 00:11:36.000 --> 00:11:38.220
  • DISASTERS, BUT THE LORD SAID IT'LL BE LABOR PAINS.
  • 00:11:38.250 --> 00:11:44.100
  • PAUL REFERS TO IT AS THE WHOLE CREATION GROANS AND TRAVAILS -
  • 00:11:44.130 --> 00:11:48.130
  • IT COMPARES IT TO A BIRTH. NOW, WE HAVE FIVE CHILDREN -
  • 00:11:48.160 --> 00:11:54.120
  • SEVEN GRANDCHILDREN - I KNOW SOMETHING ABOUT HOW THIS WORKS.
  • 00:11:54.150 --> 00:11:58.110
  • WIFE SAYS, 'I'M FEELING SOME PAIN.' YOU RUSH HER OFF TO THE
  • 00:11:58.140 --> 00:12:03.150
  • HOSPITAL AND HE LISTENS AND SAYS, 'HOW FAR APART ARE THEY?'
  • 00:12:03.180 --> 00:12:06.210
  • 'ABOUT A DAY OR TWO.' HE SAYS, 'OH, GO BACK HOME.
  • 00:12:06.240 --> 00:12:09.150
  • THOSE ARE BRAXTON-HICKS CONTRACTIONS.
  • 00:12:09.180 --> 00:12:12.030
  • THAT DOESN'T MEAN ANYTHING. YOUR BODY'S JUST GETTING WARMED
  • 00:12:12.060 --> 00:12:14.060
  • UP.' BUT, EVENTUALLY, THOSE PAINS WILL START COMING AND
  • 00:12:14.090 --> 00:12:19.290
  • HE'LL SAY, 'HOW FAR APART ARE THEY? HOW SEVERE ARE THEY? AS
  • 00:12:20.020 --> 00:12:23.170
  • THEY INCREASE IN FREQUENCY AND INTENSITY, YOU KNOW THERE'S
  • 00:12:23.200 --> 00:12:27.240
  • GOING TO BE A BIRTH EVENTUALLY. AND WHAT WE'RE SEEING IN THE
  • 00:12:27.270 --> 00:12:31.150
  • WORLD CANNOT BE DENIED THAT WITH ALL OF THESE PROBLEMS THERE IS
  • 00:12:31.180 --> 00:12:34.260
  • AN INCREASE IN FREQUENCY AND INTENSITY THAT TELLS US THAT THE
  • 00:12:34.290 --> 00:12:39.230
  • COMING OF THE LORD IS GOING TO BE SOON.
  • 00:12:39.260 --> 00:12:43.280

  • EXTRAORDINARY COSMIC EVENT IN HISTORY?
  • 00:12:55.220 --> 00:12:58.220
  • WILL WE BE SUDDENLY AND SECRETLY RAPTURED AS MILLIONS ARE LEFT
  • 00:12:58.250 --> 00:13:02.100
  • BEHIND? OR WILL JESUS' RETURN BE AS LOUD

  • AND BRIGHT AS LIGHTNING FROM SKY TO SKY?
  • 00:13:05.290 --> 00:13:09.170

  • AMAZING FACTS FROM THE WORD OF GOD.

  • -ANOTHER PROBLEM IS JUST WHAT'S HAPPENING TO THE ENVIRONMENT.
  • 00:13:56.180 --> 00:13:59.120
  • HALF OF THE WORLD'S WILDLIFE SPECIES, NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC
  • 00:13:59.150 --> 00:14:02.190
  • SAYS, HAVE BEEN LOST IN THE PAST 40 YEARS.
  • 00:14:02.220 --> 00:14:04.260
  • CAN YOU IMAGINE THAT?
  • 00:14:04.290 --> 00:14:06.040
  • HALF OF THE WILDLIFE SPECIES HAVE BEEN LOST IN 40 YEARS.
  • 00:14:06.070 --> 00:14:10.260
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THERE'LL BE VIOLENCE IN THE LAST DAYS.
  • 00:14:10.290 --> 00:14:14.220
  • HE SAID, 'AS IT WAS IN THE DAYS OF NOAH, WHERE PEOPLE'S THOUGHTS
  • 00:14:14.250 --> 00:14:18.220
  • AND THEIR HEARTS WERE ONLY EVIL CONTINUALLY AND VIOLENCE FILLED
  • 00:14:18.250 --> 00:14:22.000
  • THE LAND.' EVERY DAY, MORE AMERICAN YOUTH DIE IN GANG
  • 00:14:22.030 --> 00:14:25.140
  • VIOLENCE THAN FIGHTING IN FOREIGN WARS.
  • 00:14:25.170 --> 00:14:28.230
  • THAT STATISTIC HAS BEEN TRUE FOR SEVERAL YEARS.
  • 00:14:28.260 --> 00:14:31.070
  • JESUS SAID, 'AS IT WAS IN THE DAYS OF LOT, SO WILL IT BE IN
  • 00:14:31.100 --> 00:14:34.110
  • THE DAY WHEN THE SON OF MAN SHALL RETURN.' - MEANING
  • 00:14:34.140 --> 00:14:37.090
  • THERE'LL BE TREMENDOUS IMMORALITY.
  • 00:14:37.120 --> 00:14:40.020
  • I DON'T KNOW ABOUT SOME OF YOU THAT HEARD THERE'S A WEBSITE
  • 00:14:40.050 --> 00:14:43.000
  • THAT ENCOURAGES PEOPLE TO HAVE AN AFFAIR.
  • 00:14:43.030 --> 00:14:45.290
  • THEY SAY, 'LIFE IS SHORT. HAVE AN AFFAIR.' YOU NOTICE THE
  • 00:14:46.020 --> 00:14:48.160
  • GIRL HAS GOT A WEDDING RING ON? AND SOMEONE BREACHED THEIR
  • 00:14:48.190 --> 00:14:51.260
  • DATABASE - THEY CLAIMED TO HAVE 56 MILLION PEOPLE GLOBALLY
  • 00:14:51.290 --> 00:14:56.240
  • - THAT'S PRETTY SAD. AND THEY WERE GOING TO RELEASE
  • 00:14:56.270 --> 00:15:00.120
  • IT ALL IF THEY DIDN'T BRING DOWN THEIR SITE. THEY DIDN'T BRING
  • 00:15:00.150 --> 00:15:03.270
  • DOWN THEIR SITE AND A LOT OF THESE VERY PERSONAL DETAILS OF
  • 00:15:04.000 --> 00:15:08.000
  • PEOPLE WHO HAD BEEN EITHER HAVING AFFAIRS OR CONTEMPLATING
  • 00:15:08.030 --> 00:15:11.060
  • AFFAIRS. LIKEWISE, AS IT WAS, JESUS SAID,
  • 00:15:11.090 --> 00:15:15.210
  • 'IN THE DAYS OF LOT, SO SHALL IT BE IN THE DAY WHEN THE SON OF
  • 00:15:15.240 --> 00:15:18.100
  • MAN IS REVEALED.' AND I THINK WE ALL KNOW THAT ONE OF THE SIGNS
  • 00:15:18.130 --> 00:15:21.150
  • IN LOT IS THEY HAD TROUBLE KNOWING THAT GOD MADE
  • 00:15:21.180 --> 00:15:27.260
  • MALE AND FEMALE DIFFERENT. IS IT JUST ME OR DO WE HAVE A
  • 00:15:27.290 --> 00:15:33.120
  • PROBLEM WITH THAT IN THE WORLD TODAY?
  • 00:15:33.150 --> 00:15:36.000
  • YOU NOTICE I'M HAVING TO BE CAREFUL HOW I SAY IT?
  • 00:15:36.030 --> 00:15:38.260
  • BUT THE BIBLE'S PRETTY CLEAR - AND NOW IT'S NOT JUST -
  • 00:15:38.290 --> 00:15:42.100
  • YOU CAN IDENTIFY AS WHATEVER YOU WANT.
  • 00:15:42.130 --> 00:15:44.290
  • IT'S NOT JUST YOU SAY, 'WELL, I'M GOING TO IDENTIFY AS A MAN'
  • 00:15:45.020 --> 00:15:48.010
  • OR 'I'M GOING TO IDENTIFY' - 'I'M GOING TO IDENTIFY AS
  • 00:15:48.040 --> 00:15:49.250
  • SOMETHING ELSE IN BETWEEN.' AND THEY'RE GETTING DRIVERS LICENSES
  • 00:15:49.280 --> 00:15:54.260
  • WHERE YOU CAN HAVE,YOU KNOW, 50 DIFFERENT OPTIONS FOR WHAT YOUR
  • 00:15:54.290 --> 00:15:56.270
  • SEXUAL IDENTITY IS. I'M SORRY, GOD MADE TWO.
  • 00:15:57.000 --> 00:16:00.020
  • -AMEN. -AND THAT'S IT.
  • 00:16:00.050 --> 00:16:02.170
  • OVER POPULATION - IT TOOK ABOUT 5.000 YEARS TO GET THE FIRST
  • 00:16:02.200 --> 00:16:07.100
  • BILLION PEOPLE IN THE WORLD, THEN IT ONLY TOOK 130 YEARS TO
  • 00:16:07.130 --> 00:16:10.140
  • GET THE SECOND BILLION. THEN IT TOOK 30 YEARS TO GET THE
  • 00:16:10.170 --> 00:16:13.080
  • THIRD BILLION, 15 YEARS TO GET THE FOURTH BILLION.
  • 00:16:13.110 --> 00:16:16.100
  • I REMEMBER WHEN THERE WERE 3 BILLION.
  • 00:16:16.130 --> 00:16:17.240
  • NOW THEY'RE PUSHING TOWARDS 8 BILLION PEOPLE.
  • 00:16:17.270 --> 00:16:21.250
  • YOU KNOW, FOR ME ALSO, ONE OF THE AMAZING SIGNS THAT JESUS IS
  • 00:16:21.280 --> 00:16:25.030
  • COMING SOON IS FOUND IN DANIEL CHAPTER 12.
  • 00:16:25.060 --> 00:16:28.280
  • IT SAYS, 'BUT YOU, DANIEL, SHUT UP THE WORDS, AND SEAL THE BOOK
  • 00:16:29.010 --> 00:16:31.160
  • UNTIL THE TIME OF THE END; MANY SHALL RUN TO AND FRO," - AND
  • 00:16:31.190 --> 00:16:36.180
  • PEOPLE ARE RUNNING TO AND FRO: NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE
  • 00:16:36.210 --> 00:16:39.180
  • SAID, A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO, PEOPLE ARE TRAVELING FAR FROM
  • 00:16:39.210 --> 00:16:43.280
  • HOME MORE THAN EVER BEFORE IN HUMAN HISTORY."
  • 00:16:44.010 --> 00:16:47.140
  • AND THEY'RE JUST - THE INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL - AS MUCH
  • 00:16:47.170 --> 00:16:51.080
  • AS WE COMPLAIN, IT'S HAPPENING MORE AND MORE.
  • 00:16:51.110 --> 00:16:53.050
  • ALL THE PLANES ARE FULL THAT I'M ON. AND HE SAID, GOING BACK TO
  • 00:16:53.080 --> 00:16:57.110
  • DANIEL, "KNOWLEDGE WILL INCREASE."
  • 00:16:57.140 --> 00:16:59.290
  • LOOK AT THE EXPLOSION OF KNOWLEDGE. NOW, YOU CAN HAVE A
  • 00:17:00.040 --> 00:17:02.080
  • LOT OF KNOWLEDGE AND NO WISDOM. WISDOM IS KNOWING WHAT
  • 00:17:02.110 --> 00:17:05.230
  • TO DO WITH KNOWLEDGE. YOU CAN HAVE KNOWLEDGE AND MAKE
  • 00:17:05.260 --> 00:17:07.190
  • AN ATOMIC BOMB AND NOT HAVE THE WISDOM TO NOT USE IT.
  • 00:17:07.220 --> 00:17:11.070
  • SO, MAN HAS CERTAINLY GOT A LOT OF KNOWLEDGE.
  • 00:17:11.100 --> 00:17:14.180
  • I DON'T KNOW IF YOU'VE HEARD ABOUT THE HADRON ACCELERATOR - I
  • 00:17:14.210 --> 00:17:17.280
  • THINK THAT WAS ON THE SCREEN JUST A MOMENT AGO.
  • 00:17:18.010 --> 00:17:20.000
  • IT'S THE LARGEST SCIENTIFIC EXPERIMENT IN THE WORLD.

  • 17-MILE TUNNEL UNDERNEATH FRANCE AND SWITZERLAND - 500-FEET BELOW
  • 00:17:23.250 --> 00:17:31.000
  • GROUND - 10.000 SCIENTISTS AND THEY'RE TRYING TO ISOLATE AND
  • 00:17:31.030 --> 00:17:36.000
  • DISCOVER WHAT THEY CALL 'THE HIGGS BOSON' - THE GOD
  • 00:17:36.030 --> 00:17:39.130
  • PARTICLE. THEY'RE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW
  • 00:17:39.160 --> 00:17:42.010
  • THE UNIVERSE WAS DEVELOPED AND THEY SPENT ALL THIS MONEY TO TRY
  • 00:17:42.040 --> 00:17:46.090
  • AND FIND OUT, YOU KNOW, WHAT DOES EVERYTHING COME FROM?
  • 00:17:46.120 --> 00:17:50.250
  • AND, I DON'T HAVE TIME TO GO THROUGH ALL OF THE AMAZING
  • 00:17:50.280 --> 00:17:53.040
  • INVENTIONS THAT HAVE TAKEN PLACE IN THE LAST CENTURY.
  • 00:17:53.070 --> 00:17:56.030
  • SOME OF YOU HERE, YOU GREW UP WITH KEROSENE LIGHTS.
  • 00:17:56.060 --> 00:18:00.140
  • AND THERE'S STILL PEOPLE HERE WHO REMEMBER WHEN YOU RODE A
  • 00:18:00.170 --> 00:18:02.240
  • HORSE TO GET FROM POINT A TO POINT B. LOOK AT HOW THE WORLD
  • 00:18:02.270 --> 00:18:05.260
  • HAS CHANGED IN ONE GENERATION. BUT, FOR ME, THE MOST AMAZING
  • 00:18:05.290 --> 00:18:09.270
  • SIGN IS IN MATTHEW 24, VERSE 14. -AMEN.
  • 00:18:10.000 --> 00:18:13.210
  • -JESUS SAID, "AND THIS GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM WILL BE PREACHED
  • 00:18:13.240 --> 00:18:17.050
  • IN ALL THE WORLD FOR A WITNESS UNTO THE NATIONS AND THEN THE
  • 00:18:17.080 --> 00:18:22.000
  • END WILL COME." THE END MIGHT COME?
  • 00:18:22.030 --> 00:18:24.260
  • -WILL. -HE SAID THE END SHALL COME -
  • 00:18:24.290 --> 00:18:27.050
  • IT WILL COME. IS THE GOSPEL BEING PREACHED
  • 00:18:27.080 --> 00:18:29.250
  • IN ALL THE WORLD? -YES.
  • 00:18:29.280 --> 00:18:31.060
  • -NEVER BEFORE - I MEAN, EVEN AS I SPEAK RIGHT NOW, THIS IS GOING

  • UP BY SATELLITE, IT'S ON AT LEAST THREE DIFFERENT SATELLITE
  • 00:18:34.140 --> 00:18:38.020
  • NETWORKS, IT'S GOING THROUGH THE INTERNET.
  • 00:18:38.050 --> 00:18:40.000
  • THERE'S PEOPLE WHO ARE WATCHING IN NEW GUINEA AND AUSTRALIA AND
  • 00:18:40.030 --> 00:18:42.240
  • NORWAY AND JUST ALL OVER THE PLANET.
  • 00:18:42.270 --> 00:18:46.160
  • IN CHINA AMAZING FACTS HAD THE PRIVILEGE OF BEING THE FIRST
  • 00:18:46.190 --> 00:18:52.110
  • CHRISTIAN MINISTRY OF ANY DENOMINATION TO DO A PUBLIC
  • 00:18:52.140 --> 00:18:56.160

  • WE GET INTERNET - WE GET E-MAIL FROM PEOPLE WHO SAY THEY'RE

  • 00:19:17.100 --> 00:19:20.220
  • IN DANGER.' BUT THEY'RE WATCHING. THE GOSPEL IS GOING IN
  • 00:19:20.250 --> 00:19:23.280
  • ALL THE WORLD. -AMEN.
  • 00:19:24.010 --> 00:19:25.180
  • -AND SO, THAT'S WHY I THINK JESUS IS COMING.
  • 00:19:25.210 --> 00:19:27.240
  • HE DIDN'T SAY EVERYBODY WOULD BELIEVE, HE SAID, 'AS A WITNESS
  • 00:19:27.270 --> 00:19:30.140
  • TO ALL NATIONS, THEN THE END WILL COME.' SO ARE WE GETTING
  • 00:19:30.170 --> 00:19:36.050
  • READY FOR JESUS' COMING? -AMEN.
  • 00:19:36.080 --> 00:19:38.080
  • -WHAT WILL THE ANGELS DO AT THE SECOND COMING OF JESUS?
  • 00:19:38.110 --> 00:19:43.060
  • THE BIBLE SAYS HE WILL SEND HIS ANGELS AND THEY WILL GATHER
  • 00:19:43.090 --> 00:19:46.110
  • TOGETHER HIS ELECT FROM THE FOUR WINDS OF HEAVEN - THAT MEANS
  • 00:19:46.140 --> 00:19:49.170
  • NORTH, SOUTH, EAST, WEST - AND THEY'LL BRING THEM TO THE LORD -
  • 00:19:49.200 --> 00:19:54.220
  • THEY'RE GOING TO BE CAUGHT UP TOGETHER WITH THE LORD.
  • 00:19:54.250 --> 00:19:56.250
  • NOW, SINCE WE'RE LIVING JUST BEFORE THE SECOND COMING, HOW
  • 00:19:56.280 --> 00:20:01.020
  • SHOULD WE RELATE TO THIS SOLEMN AND GLORIOUS EVENT?
  • 00:20:01.050 --> 00:20:05.000
  • HE SAYS, 'THEREFORE BE READY, FOR IN SUCH AN HOUR YOU THINK
  • 00:20:05.030 --> 00:20:09.180
  • NOT, THE SON OF MAN IS COMING.' I DID A PROGRAM LIKE THIS BACK
  • 00:20:09.210 --> 00:20:14.120
  • IN 1999 AND THERE WAS MILLENNIAL FEVER AND EVERYBODY THOUGHT THE
  • 00:20:14.150 --> 00:20:19.050
  • WORLD WAS GOING TO END WITH Y2K. ANY OF YOU REMEMBER THAT?
  • 00:20:19.080 --> 00:20:22.180
  • -YES. -THAT WAS THE MOTHER
  • 00:20:22.210 --> 00:20:23.270
  • OF ALL FALSE ALARMS. AND I KNEW PEOPLE SOLD
  • 00:20:24.000 --> 00:20:27.240
  • EVERYTHING AND MOVED UP INTO MONTANA AND, YOU KNOW, LIVED ON
  • 00:20:27.270 --> 00:20:30.240
  • GARBANZO BEANS OR WHATEVER AND THEY JUST CUT UP THEIR CREDIT
  • 00:20:30.270 --> 00:20:33.250
  • CARDS AND SAID, 'WE'VE GOT TO GET OFF THE GRID.
  • 00:20:33.280 --> 00:20:35.130
  • THE WORLD IS GOING TO END WITH Y2K.
  • 00:20:35.160 --> 00:20:38.100
  • EVERYONE THOUGHT, '2000, SOMETHING'S GOING TO HAPPEN.'
  • 00:20:38.130 --> 00:20:42.060
  • YOU CAN LISTEN TO MY OLD TAPE, I SAID, 'I DON'T THINK IT'S GOING
  • 00:20:42.090 --> 00:20:43.230
  • TO HAPPEN NOW.' 'WHY?' 'BECAUSE EVERYBODY'S LOOKING FOR
  • 00:20:43.260 --> 00:20:45.220
  • IT NOW.' (LAUGHTER) JESUS SAID, 'AS SUCH AN HOUR AS YOU THINK
  • 00:20:45.250 --> 00:20:49.080
  • NOT.' AND WHO'S HE TALKING TO? THE CHURCH.
  • 00:20:49.110 --> 00:20:53.040
  • YOU NOTICE THAT WHEN JESUS TELLS PARABLES ABOUT HIS SECOND COMING
  • 00:20:53.070 --> 00:20:57.020
  • HE SAID, 'BEFORE IT HAPPENS A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE SLEEPING.'
  • 00:20:57.050 --> 00:21:02.060
  • THERE WERE TEN VIRGINS - FIVE WISE, FIVE FOOLISH -
  • 00:21:02.090 --> 00:21:06.230
  • ALL ASLEEP, RIGHT? -RIGHT.
  • 00:21:06.260 --> 00:21:10.020
  • -AND THEN THE BRIDEGROOM SHOUTED THAT HE'S COMING -
  • 00:21:10.050 --> 00:21:12.080
  • THEY HAD TO WAKE UP. JESUS SAID, 'IF THAT EVIL
  • 00:21:12.110 --> 00:21:15.000
  • SERVANT SAYS IN HIS HEART, 'MY LORD DELAYS HIS COMING.'' -
  • 00:21:15.030 --> 00:21:18.110
  • EVEN IF HE SAYS IT IN HIS HEART - AND WE'RE ASLEEP AT THAT
  • 00:21:18.140 --> 00:21:23.060
  • CRITICAL MOMENT. WHAT WERE THE DISCIPLES
  • 00:21:23.090 --> 00:21:24.180
  • DOING JUST BEFORE THE CROSS? -SLEEPING.
  • 00:21:24.210 --> 00:21:26.190
  • -HE SAID, 'PRAY WITH ME.' THEY WENT TO SLEEP.
  • 00:21:26.220 --> 00:21:29.030
  • ON THE MOUNTAIN WHEN MOSES AND ELIJAH APPEAR AND GOD SPEAKS,
  • 00:21:29.060 --> 00:21:31.240
  • THE DISCIPLES FELL ASLEEP. SO JESUS SAID, MARK
  • 00:21:31.270 --> 00:21:37.050
  • CHAPTER 13, "WATCH. WATCH. WATCH." HOW DO YOU WATCH?
  • 00:21:37.080 --> 00:21:41.240
  • YOU HAVE TO BE SOBER. YOU HAVE TO BE VIGILANT.
  • 00:21:41.270 --> 00:21:44.000
  • YOU HAVE TO BE CAREFUL THAT YOU ARE NOT ALLOWING YOURSELF TO
  • 00:21:44.030 --> 00:21:48.080
  • DOZE OFF. DO YOU HAVE A
  • 00:21:48.110 --> 00:21:49.260
  • RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS? ARE YOU SPENDING
  • 00:21:49.290 --> 00:21:52.070
  • REGULAR TIME WITH HIM? DO EVERYTHING YOU CAN DO.
  • 00:21:52.100 --> 00:21:55.010
  • MAKE A NOTE, SET IT ON YOUR COMPUTER, HAVE AN ALARM GO OFF.
  • 00:21:55.040 --> 00:21:58.030
  • BUT IF YOU TAKE TIME TO PRAY, IF YOU TAKE TIME TO READ HIS WORD,
  • 00:21:58.060 --> 00:22:02.170
  • IF YOU TAKE TIME - SHARE YOUR FAITH.
  • 00:22:02.200 --> 00:22:05.050
  • AND YOU NEED TO BE STUDYING. KNOW WHAT YOU BELIEVE.
  • 00:22:05.080 --> 00:22:09.180
  • BE READY ALWAYS TO GIVE AN ANSWER TO ANYONE WHO ASKS YOU
  • 00:22:09.210 --> 00:22:12.180
  • THE REASON FOR THE HOPE THAT IS IN YOU WITH MEEKNESS AND FEAR.
  • 00:22:12.210 --> 00:22:15.110
  • SO HOW WILL PEOPLE BE REWARDED AT THE SECOND COMING OF JESUS?
  • 00:22:15.140 --> 00:22:19.210
  • THERE'S GOING TO BE TWO GROUPS.
  • 00:22:19.240 --> 00:22:21.150
  • THE LORD SAYS, 'BEHOLD, I COME AND MY REWARD IS WITH ME TO GIVE
  • 00:22:21.180 --> 00:22:25.030
  • TO EVERY MAN ACCORDING AS HIS WORKS SHALL BE."
  • 00:22:25.060 --> 00:22:29.070
  • WHAT WILL THE RIGHTEOUS SAY WHEN JESUS COMES?
  • 00:22:29.100 --> 00:22:33.050
  • "LO, THIS IS OUR GOD. WE HAVE WAITED FOR HIM
  • 00:22:33.080 --> 00:22:36.120
  • AND HE WILL SAVE US." DO YOU LIVE FOR THE LORD?
  • 00:22:36.150 --> 00:22:39.130
  • ARE YOU WAITING FOR HIM? -YES.
  • 00:22:39.160 --> 00:22:41.140
  • -YOU KNOW, A FEW YEARS AGO, A CAPTAIN, SCOTT O'GRADY, WAS
  • 00:22:41.170 --> 00:22:47.060
  • FLYING OVER BOSNIA DURING THE WAR THERE, AND HIS JET WAS SHOT
  • 00:22:47.090 --> 00:22:52.150
  • DOWN. AND HE PARACHUTED OFF
  • 00:22:52.180 --> 00:22:56.080
  • INTO ENEMY TERRITORY. AND HE KNEW THAT IF HE WAS
  • 00:22:56.110 --> 00:23:00.170
  • CAPTURED THAT - THEY HAD BEEN DOING BOMB RUNS AND THAT HE
  • 00:23:00.200 --> 00:23:04.170
  • WOULD BE EITHER KILLED OR TORTURED OR BOTH.
  • 00:23:04.200 --> 00:23:07.110
  • AND SO HE HAD TO HIDE. CUT LOOSE HIS PARACHUTE, WENT
  • 00:23:07.140 --> 00:23:13.110
  • UNDER SOME BUSHES - HE KNEW WHEN HE WAS SHOT DOWN THAT OTHERS SAW
  • 00:23:13.140 --> 00:23:16.010
  • HIS PARACHUTE COME DOWN AND HE WAS HIDING UNDER BUSHES.
  • 00:23:16.040 --> 00:23:19.290
  • HE PUT HIS CAMOUFLAGE GLOVES OVER HIS FACE.
  • 00:23:20.020 --> 00:23:22.140
  • HE SAW PEOPLE WALKING RIGHT BY THE BUSHES.
  • 00:23:22.170 --> 00:23:25.280
  • HE HEARD THE SOLDIERS WITH GUNS TALKING AND WALKING AROUND HIM
  • 00:23:26.010 --> 00:23:29.190
  • AND HE HAD TO STAY PERFECTLY STILL. FOR SIX DAYS HE HID,
  • 00:23:29.220 --> 00:23:34.180
  • TERRIFIED - HE'D TRY TO SLEEP AND STAY STILL DURING THE DAY.
  • 00:23:34.210 --> 00:23:39.280
  • ABOUT MIDNIGHT - HE'D GET UP DURING THE NIGHT AND HE'D RUN -
  • 00:23:40.010 --> 00:23:44.180
  • TRY AND GET FURTHER AND FURTHER AND TRY AND GET OUT IN
  • 00:23:44.210 --> 00:23:46.200
  • THE WILDERNESS - DIDN'T EVEN RADIO FOR A FEW DAYS BECAUSE HE
  • 00:23:46.230 --> 00:23:49.170
  • KNEW THEY'D BE LISTENING FOR HIS RADIO FREQUENCY.
  • 00:23:49.200 --> 00:23:52.240
  • AND HE CAUGHT RAINWATER IN A SPONGE AND ATE BUGS AND PUT ALL
  • 00:23:52.270 --> 00:23:58.120
  • OF HIS TRAINING INTO PRACTICE.
  • 00:23:58.150 --> 00:24:00.260
  • YOU CAN READ, WHERE HE SAID IN THIS TIME MAGAZINE A PILOT'S
  • 00:24:00.290 --> 00:24:03.280
  • STORY , "I PRAYED TO GOD AND ASKED HIM FOR A LOT OF THINGS
  • 00:24:04.010 --> 00:24:08.210
  • AND HE DELIVERED ME THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE TIME."
  • 00:24:08.240 --> 00:24:11.140
  • O'GRADY TOLD TIME IN AN INTERVIEW.
  • 00:24:11.170 --> 00:24:13.010
  • "WHEN I PRAYED FOR RAIN HE GAVE ME RAIN.
  • 00:24:13.040 --> 00:24:15.110
  • ONE TIME I PRAYED, 'LORD, LET ME HAVE AT LEAST SOMEONE KNOW I'M
  • 00:24:15.140 --> 00:24:18.190
  • ALIVE AND MAYBE COME RESCUE ME.' AND GUESS WHAT? THAT NIGHT
  • 00:24:18.220 --> 00:24:22.190
  • T.O." - THAT'S A FELLOW F-16 PILOT, THOMAS O. HANFORD - "CAME
  • 00:24:22.220 --> 00:24:26.260
  • UP ON THE RADIO." AT THAT MOMENT O'GRADY KNEW HIS ORDEAL WAS
  • 00:24:26.290 --> 00:24:30.020
  • COMING TO AN END. -AMEN.
  • 00:24:30.050 --> 00:24:31.270
  • -WHAT HE DIDN'T KNOW IS THAT THEY HAD A FIX ON HIM.
  • 00:24:32.000 --> 00:24:37.230
  • THEY KNEW HE WAS SHOT DOWN AND THEY MOBILIZED THE ENTIRE U.S.
  • 00:24:37.260 --> 00:24:43.100
  • AIR FORCE, MARINES - NATO WAS ALL PREOCCUPIED WITH RESCUING
  • 00:24:43.130 --> 00:24:49.190
  • ONE SOLDIER. THAT'S HOW MUCH ONE SOLDIER MEANS.
  • 00:24:49.220 --> 00:24:53.230
  • AND WHEN THEY FINALLY CAME AND HE HAD TO RUN UP ON THIS HILL -
  • 00:24:53.260 --> 00:24:57.080
  • HE KNEW THEY HAD JUST A VERY SHORT TIME - THE MARINES CAME IN
  • 00:24:57.110 --> 00:24:59.260
  • WITH THE HELICOPTERS - THEY SAW HIS SMOKE - THEY LANDED AND THEY
  • 00:24:59.290 --> 00:25:03.210
  • PICKED HIM UP AND HE WAS SO THANKFUL TO BE CAUGHT UP AND
  • 00:25:03.240 --> 00:25:09.080
  • SAVED FROM ENEMY TERRITORY. WELL, WE'VE BEEN DOWN HERE FOR
  • 00:25:09.110 --> 00:25:12.270
  • 6.000 YEARS, HAS JESUS FORGOTTEN ABOUT US?
  • 00:25:13.000 --> 00:25:16.180
  • -NO. -WE'RE IN ENEMY TERRITORY.
  • 00:25:16.210 --> 00:25:19.280
  • IF YOU'RE A CHRISTIAN, YOU'RE A CITIZEN OF ANOTHER KINGDOM,
  • 00:25:20.010 --> 00:25:22.140
  • AMEN? -AMEN.
  • 00:25:22.170 --> 00:25:23.210
  • -AND HE IS NOT GOING TO NEGLECT HIS PROMISE.
  • 00:25:23.240 --> 00:25:27.060
  • CHRIST HAS TOLD US VERY PLAINLY, 'IN MY FATHER'S HOUSE ARE MANY
  • 00:25:27.090 --> 00:25:30.270
  • MANSIONS. IF IT WAS NOT SO, I WOULD HAVE TOLD YOU.
  • 00:25:31.000 --> 00:25:34.020
  • I WILL COME AGAIN.' -AMEN.
  • 00:25:34.050 --> 00:25:37.150
  • -HE CAME THE FIRST TIME JUST LIKE HE PROMISED.
  • 00:25:37.180 --> 00:25:39.190
  • HE'S GOING TO COME THE SECOND TIME.
  • 00:25:39.220 --> 00:25:41.220
  • DO YOU BELIEVE IT, FRIENDS? -YES.
  • 00:25:41.250 --> 00:25:43.020
  • -AMEN. -AND HE WANTS TO TAKE US BACK
  • 00:25:43.050 --> 00:25:44.190
  • TO A WORLD WHERE THERE IS NO MORE PAIN OR SORROW
  • 00:25:44.220 --> 00:25:47.110
  • OR SUFFERING. ONLY THING THAT MATTERS IN
  • 00:25:47.140 --> 00:25:49.180
  • THIS LIFE IS KNOWING JESUS AND SHARING JESUS.

  • REAL, IS THE MESSAGE OF THE GOSPEL AND WE NEED TO GET THAT
  • 00:26:03.100 --> 00:26:07.180
