  • Ed Young: The church should bethe most creative entity in
  • 00:00:01.647 --> 00:00:04.349
  • the world.
  • 00:00:04.383 --> 00:00:05.717
  • The church is where it happens.
  • 00:00:07.586 --> 00:00:09.221
  • The church is where we findpurpose, and meaning, and power.
  • 00:00:09.521 --> 00:00:13.492
  • The church is the living,breathing body of Christ.
  • 00:00:13.859 --> 00:00:18.063
  • Wisdom though is seeing lifethrough the perspective of God.
  • 00:00:20.966 --> 00:00:26.605
  • You've never locked eyes withsomeone that Jesus did not
  • 00:00:28.207 --> 00:00:31.243
  • die for.
  • 00:00:31.276 --> 00:00:32.644
  • Ed: Thanks so much for watching"Ed Young Television."
  • 00:00:34.713 --> 00:00:37.349
  • You know, the next 30 minutes, Ibelieve, can change the course
  • 00:00:37.382 --> 00:00:40.219
  • of your life.
  • 00:00:40.252 --> 00:00:41.587
  • So, sit back and lean in,because I believe God is going
  • 00:00:41.620 --> 00:00:45.724
  • to do some amazing things inyour life and in mine.
  • 00:00:45.757 --> 00:00:51.363
  • Ed: The book of Revelation is avery compelling yet
  • 00:00:51.630 --> 00:00:55.300
  • confusing book.
  • 00:00:55.334 --> 00:00:56.668
  • If someone says, "Oh, Iunderstand Revelation," you're
  • 00:00:56.702 --> 00:00:59.872
  • talking to someone who doesn't,because it's mysterious, it's
  • 00:00:59.905 --> 00:01:03.809
  • factual, yet it's veryallegorical, very symbolic, and
  • 00:01:03.842 --> 00:01:07.880
  • it's hard to know exactly what'sgonna take place.
  • 00:01:07.913 --> 00:01:11.183
  • That's why I've been doing sortof a panoramic photograph of
  • 00:01:11.216 --> 00:01:14.987
  • the book.
  • 00:01:15.020 --> 00:01:16.321
  • I love the panoramic feature onmy phone, yet it's sad to say I
  • 00:01:16.355 --> 00:01:21.593
  • rarely use it, and it'sdifficult when you scroll
  • 00:01:21.627 --> 00:01:24.897
  • through pictures to actuallyappreciate the panoramic view.
  • 00:01:24.930 --> 00:01:28.200
  • But I still like saying, "Oh,yeah, I've got the panoramic
  • 00:01:28.233 --> 00:01:31.403
  • feature on my phone," and mostpeople do.
  • 00:01:31.436 --> 00:01:33.672
  • When it comes to the book ofRevelation, it's critical that
  • 00:01:33.705 --> 00:01:36.575
  • those of us who are believers,and I know we have others who
  • 00:01:36.608 --> 00:01:40.679
  • are not believers, but it'scritical for those of us who are
  • 00:01:40.712 --> 00:01:42.848
  • believers to understand thefact, and I've been talkin'
  • 00:01:42.881 --> 00:01:46.885
  • about this a lot, that we win,that's huge, and the book of
  • 00:01:46.919 --> 00:01:50.289
  • Revelation talks about that, andnumber two, that we will get
  • 00:01:50.322 --> 00:01:54.793
  • blessed when we study the bookof Revelation.
  • 00:01:54.826 --> 00:01:58.230
  • It doesn't say when weunderstand it, the Bible says
  • 00:01:58.263 --> 00:02:01.567
  • when we study it, when we readit.
  • 00:02:01.600 --> 00:02:04.203
  • As I alluded to in one of thesessions, I took theology in
  • 00:02:05.304 --> 00:02:10.242
  • seminary from a gentleman by thename of Dr. L. Russ Bush, and
  • 00:02:10.275 --> 00:02:16.415
  • Dr. Bush talked about thetheology, the beauty of
  • 00:02:16.448 --> 00:02:20.519
  • children's books.
  • 00:02:20.552 --> 00:02:21.853
  • And he used children's books,because children's books usually
  • 00:02:21.887 --> 00:02:24.723
  • end, "And they lived happilyever after."
  • 00:02:24.756 --> 00:02:27.893
  • They usually end with that sortof ending.
  • 00:02:27.926 --> 00:02:30.529
  • And Dr. Bush said we're made forthat ending.
  • 00:02:30.562 --> 00:02:33.999
  • We're made, everyone is made, tolive happily ever after.
  • 00:02:34.032 --> 00:02:39.104
  • You know those batteries,Eveready, I love those things.
  • 00:02:39.705 --> 00:02:42.341
  • I like that name, Eveready.
  • 00:02:42.374 --> 00:02:44.009
  • Are you ready for everlastinglife?
  • 00:02:44.309 --> 00:02:49.081
  • All of us are going to live, theBible says, every single person
  • 00:02:49.114 --> 00:02:52.284
  • will exist either in one of twoplaces.
  • 00:02:52.317 --> 00:02:55.120
  • Either we'll live togetherforever with Jesus, or we'll
  • 00:02:55.821 --> 00:03:00.959
  • live apart from Jesus.
  • 00:03:00.993 --> 00:03:03.028
  • With Jesus is a place calledheaven, apart from Jesus,
  • 00:03:03.395 --> 00:03:07.332
  • there's a place called hell.
  • 00:03:07.366 --> 00:03:08.800
  • And invariably, people alwayssay, "Well I have problems
  • 00:03:09.234 --> 00:03:12.404
  • with God.
  • 00:03:12.437 --> 00:03:13.739
  • How could a good God hurl man tohell?"
  • 00:03:13.772 --> 00:03:16.942
  • God doesn't hurl or slam dunkanyone to hell, we make
  • 00:03:16.975 --> 00:03:20.212
  • that choice.
  • 00:03:20.245 --> 00:03:21.580
  • As we've learned through thebook of Revelation, hell was not
  • 00:03:21.613 --> 00:03:25.217
  • designed for man, hell wasdesigned for the devil and
  • 00:03:25.250 --> 00:03:31.323
  • the demons.
  • 00:03:31.356 --> 00:03:32.691
  • So, if someone goes to hell,sadly because our church is so
  • 00:03:32.724 --> 00:03:37.829
  • massive, we have so many peoplewatching, so many people
  • 00:03:37.863 --> 00:03:40.299
  • involved, I'm sure some of youwill end up going to hell,
  • 00:03:40.332 --> 00:03:44.169
  • you'll go against God's agenda.
  • 00:03:44.202 --> 00:03:46.238
  • But because of the fact that wehave a choice, God says to you,
  • 00:03:46.772 --> 00:03:52.744
  • and he says to me, at the end ofthe life, at the end of our
  • 00:03:55.514 --> 00:03:58.317
  • existence, "Hey, you know what?
  • 00:03:58.350 --> 00:03:59.851
  • You wanted to keep distance fromme on planet earth, and you did
  • 00:03:59.885 --> 00:04:03.422
  • that, you did a good job, youwill have that in
  • 00:04:03.455 --> 00:04:06.725
  • eternity, hell."
  • 00:04:06.758 --> 00:04:08.794
  • So, hell is real.
  • 00:04:08.827 --> 00:04:11.163
  • Hell is real.
  • 00:04:11.596 --> 00:04:12.931
  • People ask me sometimes, "Do youbelieve in hell?"
  • 00:04:12.964 --> 00:04:14.800
  • Hell, yes, I believe in hell,because hell is a real
  • 00:04:15.167 --> 00:04:20.172
  • place, too.
  • 00:04:20.205 --> 00:04:21.506
  • Do I know exactly what hell'sgonna be like?
  • 00:04:21.540 --> 00:04:22.874
  • No, but it's away from thepresence of God.
  • 00:04:22.908 --> 00:04:25.010
  • I heard someone say one time,"Hell is a place where you can
  • 00:04:25.043 --> 00:04:27.546
  • do anything and everythingyou've always wanted to
  • 00:04:27.579 --> 00:04:29.781
  • do alone."
  • 00:04:29.815 --> 00:04:32.217
  • The Bible calls it a place of"Weeping and gnashing of teeth."
  • 00:04:32.884 --> 00:04:35.787
  • That's utter remorse, that'sforever, talking about Eveready,
  • 00:04:36.555 --> 00:04:40.225
  • forever, you're just, "Ugh."
  • 00:04:40.258 --> 00:04:42.694
  • You had an opportunity to giveyour life to Christ, but you
  • 00:04:42.728 --> 00:04:46.264
  • blew it.
  • 00:04:46.298 --> 00:04:47.599
  • You let intellect get in theway.
  • 00:04:47.632 --> 00:04:49.401
  • You let philosophy get in theway.
  • 00:04:49.434 --> 00:04:51.570
  • You let your own sovereignty getin the way, and you missed it.
  • 00:04:51.837 --> 00:04:55.741
  • It's like you're playing golf,and you're on the 18th, and you
  • 00:04:55.774 --> 00:04:59.444
  • know if you make this putt,you're gonna win a couple of
  • 00:04:59.478 --> 00:05:02.180
  • hundred dollars, because you andyour golfing buddies, you know,
  • 00:05:02.214 --> 00:05:04.383
  • gamble a bit on the golf course.
  • 00:05:04.416 --> 00:05:05.784
  • And you push it to the right,you go, "Ahh ha ha," like that.
  • 00:05:06.184 --> 00:05:10.956
  • Or maybe you're fishing, whichis a biblical sport, and you set
  • 00:05:10.989 --> 00:05:14.626
  • the hook on a big bass, and hejumps out of the water, and
  • 00:05:14.659 --> 00:05:17.896
  • you're like, "Oh, it's apersonal best, it's a
  • 00:05:17.929 --> 00:05:20.232
  • 13-pounder," and he shakes thebucket head, and the worm just
  • 00:05:20.766 --> 00:05:24.603
  • dribbles out of his mouth.
  • 00:05:24.636 --> 00:05:25.971
  • "Ugh," you know, or you go, "I'mgonna invest in that," so you
  • 00:05:26.004 --> 00:05:30.542
  • put some money in that, "Oh,it's a slam dunk," and your
  • 00:05:30.575 --> 00:05:32.978
  • friends go, "I'm tellin' you,you'll make a lot of money," and
  • 00:05:33.011 --> 00:05:35.414
  • the stock goes, ugh.
  • 00:05:35.447 --> 00:05:37.682
  • That's gnashing of teeth.
  • 00:05:37.716 --> 00:05:39.684
  • That's gnashing of teeth.
  • 00:05:39.951 --> 00:05:41.253
  • But this is a forever feeling ofgnashing of teeth, of weeping.
  • 00:05:41.286 --> 00:05:44.923
  • The Bible says in Ecclesiasteschapter 3 verse 11 that God has
  • 00:05:45.657 --> 00:05:49.261
  • set eternity in our hearts.
  • 00:05:50.328 --> 00:05:52.931
  • Have you ever wondered why welike all these movies?
  • 00:05:52.964 --> 00:05:55.300
  • And of course, we like moviesthat have a good ending, "And
  • 00:05:55.333 --> 00:05:57.969
  • they lived happily ever after."
  • 00:05:58.003 --> 00:05:59.337
  • We like books, you know, thathave a good ending.
  • 00:05:59.371 --> 00:06:03.275
  • How many times have you, I'vedone this, I've been watching a
  • 00:06:03.308 --> 00:06:06.044
  • movie, it's so intense, I willsometimes fast forward and watch
  • 00:06:06.077 --> 00:06:10.549
  • the end and go, "Whew."
  • 00:06:10.582 --> 00:06:11.950
  • Or if I'm reading a book, I'lldo the same thing.
  • 00:06:12.918 --> 00:06:15.921
  • Ooh, you know, you like that,but when something does not have
  • 00:06:15.954 --> 00:06:20.425
  • a good ending, it's like, "Ugh,"it just kinda sets me off.
  • 00:06:20.459 --> 00:06:24.529
  • So, God wants all of us to livehappily ever after, and ever
  • 00:06:24.563 --> 00:06:29.734
  • after is a long, long time.
  • 00:06:29.768 --> 00:06:31.703
  • So, the question that the bookof Revelation answers, and you
  • 00:06:32.737 --> 00:06:37.242
  • know, we've done the song, "TheRevelation Song" it talks about
  • 00:06:37.275 --> 00:06:42.113
  • what was, and what is, and whatis to come.
  • 00:06:42.514 --> 00:06:46.618
  • Well, that's straight from thebook of Revelation, and that
  • 00:06:47.152 --> 00:06:49.488
  • outlines the book of Revelation.
  • 00:06:49.521 --> 00:06:51.323
  • Chapter 1, chapter 2, and 3, andchapter 4 and following.
  • 00:06:52.090 --> 00:06:56.962
  • So, what is to come is chapter4, and following, so I want to
  • 00:06:56.995 --> 00:07:01.032
  • give you what most scholars,most people that have walked
  • 00:07:01.066 --> 00:07:05.737
  • with God for a long time, Iwanna give you a basic timeline
  • 00:07:05.770 --> 00:07:10.175
  • for the end of time.
  • 00:07:10.208 --> 00:07:11.543
  • God has set eternity in ourHearts.
  • 00:07:11.910 --> 00:07:14.112
  • This is what, generallyspeaking, panoramic, you know,
  • 00:07:14.379 --> 00:07:19.985
  • shot of what it's going to looklike.
  • 00:07:20.018 --> 00:07:22.254
  • This is not definitive.
  • 00:07:22.821 --> 00:07:25.857
  • I mean, there are somesubtleties that some people
  • 00:07:25.891 --> 00:07:28.059
  • would debate, but again, I'mhitting the high points that
  • 00:07:28.093 --> 00:07:31.429
  • people would go, "All right,yeah, that's in the book
  • 00:07:31.463 --> 00:07:33.965
  • of Revelation."
  • 00:07:33.999 --> 00:07:35.300
  • Here's how it plays out.
  • 00:07:35.333 --> 00:07:36.668
  • Remember though, Revelation islike a forest.
  • 00:07:36.701 --> 00:07:39.337
  • It can mess you up, there's somany trees.
  • 00:07:39.371 --> 00:07:41.139
  • Don't get so caught up inlooking at the trees, "Oh,
  • 00:07:41.473 --> 00:07:44.743
  • there's a sequoia tree.
  • 00:07:44.776 --> 00:07:46.111
  • Oh, there's a pine tree, there'sa dogwood."
  • 00:07:46.144 --> 00:07:47.946
  • Don't get so focused in on thetrees that you miss the forest.
  • 00:07:47.979 --> 00:07:53.018
  • That's what people do.
  • 00:07:53.685 --> 00:07:55.020
  • That's how they get jacked upwhen they study Revelation.
  • 00:07:55.053 --> 00:07:56.721
  • Remember, revelation is aboutthe end.
  • 00:07:57.122 --> 00:08:00.325
  • It's supposed to be mysterious,yet there's a lot
  • 00:08:00.358 --> 00:08:03.261
  • of applications.
  • 00:08:03.295 --> 00:08:04.629
  • Let's talk about some of thethings.
  • 00:08:04.663 --> 00:08:05.964
  • And you'll notice this on youroutline, the first thing I want
  • 00:08:05.997 --> 00:08:09.301
  • to talk to you about is therapture of the church.
  • 00:08:09.334 --> 00:08:13.838
  • The rapture of the church.
  • 00:08:14.272 --> 00:08:16.508
  • Now, the Scripture talks aboutthis.
  • 00:08:16.908 --> 00:08:18.610
  • Let me jump over a little bit toanother book, 1 Thessalonians
  • 00:08:18.643 --> 00:08:22.180
  • chapter 4, another book thatdeals with eschatology, the
  • 00:08:22.213 --> 00:08:25.250
  • study of last things, verses 16and 18.
  • 00:08:25.283 --> 00:08:29.087
  • It says, "For the Lord himselfwill come down from heaven with
  • 00:08:29.721 --> 00:08:35.594
  • a loud command."
  • 00:08:35.627 --> 00:08:36.995
  • It's gonna be loud.
  • 00:08:37.696 --> 00:08:38.997
  • Not quiet, a loud command.
  • 00:08:39.030 --> 00:08:40.398
  • "With the voice of the archangel
  • 00:08:41.266 --> 00:08:44.102
  • and with the trumpetcall of God,"
  • 00:08:44.135 --> 00:08:46.438
  • [trumpet noise]
  • 00:08:46.471 --> 00:08:49.140
  • "And the dead in Christ willrise first."
  • 00:08:49.174 --> 00:08:51.743
  • Why will the dead in Christ risefirst?
  • 00:08:52.777 --> 00:08:54.679
  • They need a six foot head start.
  • 00:08:54.713 --> 00:08:56.314
  • After that,
  • 00:08:57.015 --> 00:09:00.752
  • after that, we who are stillalive, okay, and are left, we'll
  • 00:09:00.785 --> 00:09:09.194
  • be caught up together with themin the clouds.
  • 00:09:09.227 --> 00:09:12.964
  • And the word "clouds" there,write the word "glory."
  • 00:09:12.998 --> 00:09:16.434
  • Anytime the Bible uses clouds,referring to Jesus, it's talking
  • 00:09:16.468 --> 00:09:19.537

  • Therefore encourage each otherwith these words."

  • This is not a doggy downer studyof Revelation like, "Oh, no, all

  • this mayhem and madness."
  • 00:09:34.886 --> 00:09:36.488
  • No, it should be anencouragement.
  • 00:09:36.521 --> 00:09:39.557
  • It should be like, "Whoa," andit's not just about informing

  • 00:09:47.232 --> 00:09:50.635
  • When will the rapture takeplace?
  • 00:09:50.669 --> 00:09:53.938
  • In other words, the twinkling ofan eye, the Bible says.
  • 00:09:53.972 --> 00:09:57.442
  • And that was measured by somescientist, or some physicist, or
  • 00:09:57.475 --> 00:10:01.479
  • whatever, it's one-onethousandth of a second.
  • 00:10:01.513 --> 00:10:05.784

  • The instantaneous snatching awayof those of us in Christ.
  • 00:10:07.452 --> 00:10:12.791

  • out of here, Jack.
  • 00:10:15.293 --> 00:10:16.728
  • Conversations will end inmid-sentence.
  • 00:10:16.761 --> 00:10:19.297
  • And a big Triple Seven's flying,the pilot will look over to the
  • 00:10:19.330 --> 00:10:22.901
  • co-pilot, all he'll see is aseat.
  • 00:10:22.934 --> 00:10:25.270
  • A mother will walk into thenursery to pick up the newborn,

  • the newborn will be gone.
  • 00:10:27.672 --> 00:10:29.774
  • A boardroom will be half-full.
  • 00:10:29.808 --> 00:10:33.278
  • People will go from here tothere, from here to there.
  • 00:10:33.311 --> 00:10:38.950
  • And what's gonna be funny is tosee everyone on planet earth try
  • 00:10:38.983 --> 00:10:42.253
  • to explain what's happened.
  • 00:10:42.287 --> 00:10:43.755
  • It will be absolutely hilarious.
  • 00:10:43.788 --> 00:10:45.757
  • All of the blogs, and all of theposts, and all the snapchats,
  • 00:10:45.790 --> 00:10:49.794

  • blah, blah, blah, blah, blah,blah.
  • 00:10:52.630 --> 00:10:55.767
  • But they will not understand therapture of the church.
  • 00:10:55.800 --> 00:10:59.838
  • Then you have the seven-yeartribulation.
  • 00:10:59.871 --> 00:11:04.375
  • Three-and-a-half years of peace,three-and-a-half years
  • 00:11:04.409 --> 00:11:07.245
  • of craziness.
  • 00:11:07.278 --> 00:11:09.047
  • The antichrist will emerge, andpeople will say, "Well, maybe
  • 00:11:09.080 --> 00:11:12.350
  • it's one of the presidents."
  • 00:11:12.383 --> 00:11:13.718
  • No, no disrespect, they're notsmart enough, good looking
  • 00:11:13.752 --> 00:11:16.921
  • enough, or articulate enough tobe the antichrist.
  • 00:11:16.955 --> 00:11:20.525
  • I don't believe that.
  • 00:11:20.558 --> 00:11:21.860
  • But someone's gonna rise up, oneworld government, one world
  • 00:11:21.893 --> 00:11:25.296
  • currency, we'll have the mark ofthe beast, some sort of a chip.
  • 00:11:25.330 --> 00:11:29.300
  • Already I have chips in myanimals, and you can track them,
  • 00:11:29.334 --> 00:11:32.504
  • and it's scary how, you know,we're tracked by everybody from
  • 00:11:32.537 --> 00:11:35.273
  • the IRS to the NSA, to whoever,whatever, it's nuts.
  • 00:11:35.306 --> 00:11:39.644
  • So, we're right there.
  • 00:11:39.677 --> 00:11:41.012
  • All that's gonna be takingplace.
  • 00:11:41.045 --> 00:11:42.347
  • Then, at the end of seven years,Jesus will come back with all
  • 00:11:42.380 --> 00:11:48.486
  • of us.
  • 00:11:48.520 --> 00:11:49.888
  • And when he comes back with allof us, you've got the giant war.
  • 00:11:49.921 --> 00:11:55.794
  • You've got Armageddon.
  • 00:11:55.827 --> 00:11:57.629
  • And it'll happen in the valleyof Megiddo.
  • 00:11:57.662 --> 00:11:59.831
  • You know, I've been right there,I've seen it.
  • 00:11:59.864 --> 00:12:02.200
  • Napoleon called this battle sitethe most natural battle site in
  • 00:12:02.233 --> 00:12:06.604
  • the world.
  • 00:12:06.638 --> 00:12:07.939
  • Blood will run three feet deep.
  • 00:12:07.972 --> 00:12:09.941
  • It's gonna be just absolutelyepic.
  • 00:12:09.974 --> 00:12:15.547
  • It's gonna be mayhem, crazy.
  • 00:12:15.580 --> 00:12:18.216
  • And then, of course, you havethe 1.000-year reign, new heaven
  • 00:12:18.249 --> 00:12:22.921
  • and new earth.
  • 00:12:22.954 --> 00:12:24.255
  • Then Satan is finally throwninto the fire.
  • 00:12:24.289 --> 00:12:28.493
  • We all say, "Hell, yes, he'sgoin' to hell, that's where
  • 00:12:28.526 --> 00:12:31.896
  • he belongs."
  • 00:12:31.930 --> 00:12:33.231
  • And that is the name of that.
  • 00:12:33.264 --> 00:12:35.834
  • So, that's a basic timeline.
  • 00:12:35.867 --> 00:12:37.702
  • You've got people, differenttheologians, a lot of bright
  • 00:12:37.735 --> 00:12:41.773
  • people, some arepre-millennialist, others are
  • 00:12:41.806 --> 00:12:45.677
  • post-millennialist, others arepan-millennialist.
  • 00:12:45.710 --> 00:12:49.147
  • It all will pan out in the end.
  • 00:12:49.180 --> 00:12:51.049
  • Others are pre-trib, post-trib,all millennialists, don't worry
  • 00:12:51.082 --> 00:12:55.587
  • about it.
  • 00:12:55.620 --> 00:12:56.921
  • The good news is, we win.
  • 00:12:56.955 --> 00:12:58.489
  • The good news is, he's comingback.
  • 00:12:58.523 --> 00:13:01.025
  • And I believe that we'll be outof here before all this happens.
  • 00:13:01.059 --> 00:13:06.664
  • But you can imagine, you removeGod, you remove the church from
  • 00:13:06.698 --> 00:13:11.636
  • the world, oh, yeah, oh, yeah,oh, yeah, utter and
  • 00:13:11.669 --> 00:13:15.874
  • complete mayhem.
  • 00:13:15.907 --> 00:13:18.810
  • Ed: I just want to say again ahuge thanks for your generosity
  • 00:13:18.843 --> 00:13:23.982
  • and for you partnering with us.
  • 00:13:24.015 --> 00:13:25.984
  • No matter where you are, nomatter what age or stage you

  • find yourself in life, we havetools.
  • 00:13:29.787 --> 00:13:32.657
  • We have books, we have resourcesto help you in this endeavor.
  • 00:13:32.690 --> 00:13:36.961
  • So, if you're not a part of ourfamily here, we'll love for you
  • 00:13:36.995 --> 00:13:41.332
  • to become a part.
  • 00:13:41.366 --> 00:13:42.667
  • You can see what to do on thescreen.
  • 00:13:42.700 --> 00:13:44.869
  • So again, thanks for yourgenerosity, and let's go back to
  • 00:13:44.903 --> 00:13:49.140
  • the message.
  • 00:13:49.173 --> 00:13:50.475
  • Ed: So, what will happen?
  • 00:13:50.508 --> 00:13:52.911
  • Basically, here's what's gonnahappen.
  • 00:13:52.944 --> 00:13:54.345
  • Things that have been out ofplace will be back in place.
  • 00:13:54.379 --> 00:14:01.619
  • All of us have a certain placefor things, even though some of
  • 00:14:01.653 --> 00:14:04.122
  • us are a messy.
  • 00:14:04.155 --> 00:14:05.456
  • There's a book called "Are You AMessy?"
  • 00:14:05.490 --> 00:14:07.959
  • Did you know that?
  • 00:14:07.992 --> 00:14:09.294
  • "Are You A Messy."
  • 00:14:09.327 --> 00:14:10.662
  • And some people are messy,that's okay, but you know, even
  • 00:14:10.695 --> 00:14:12.196
  • if you're a messy, it's notcalled you're messy, a messy.
  • 00:14:12.230 --> 00:14:14.699
  • If you are a messy, thingsstill, I mean, you want to have
  • 00:14:14.732 --> 00:14:18.903
  • a certain place for things.
  • 00:14:18.937 --> 00:14:20.305
  • Even messies have places forthings, even though
  • 00:14:20.338 --> 00:14:22.373
  • they're messy.
  • 00:14:22.407 --> 00:14:23.741
  • Some people are obsessivecompulsive, and they like things
  • 00:14:23.775 --> 00:14:25.910
  • just, I mean, you know, all theshirts and the shoes and
  • 00:14:25.944 --> 00:14:28.880
  • whatever, everything in order.
  • 00:14:28.913 --> 00:14:30.214
  • But we know that certain things,right, have their place in life.
  • 00:14:30.248 --> 00:14:35.019
  • I believe again that desire wasgiven to us by God.
  • 00:14:35.053 --> 00:14:38.289
  • So, when this happens, thingswill be back in place.
  • 00:14:38.323 --> 00:14:43.027
  • The church will be back where itshould be, the bride of
  • 00:14:43.061 --> 00:14:46.664
  • Christ, right?
  • 00:14:46.698 --> 00:14:47.999
  • The devil will be where heshould be, boom, in hell, and
  • 00:14:48.032 --> 00:14:53.171
  • Jesus will be on the throne,King of kings and Lord of lords.
  • 00:14:53.204 --> 00:14:58.076
  • That's something that we need tosee.
  • 00:14:58.109 --> 00:15:01.446
  • But I don't know, as I lookaround the world today, I see so
  • 00:15:01.479 --> 00:15:06.617
  • much and so many things thatpoint to the rapture of the
  • 00:15:06.651 --> 00:15:12.123
  • church, I really do.
  • 00:15:12.156 --> 00:15:14.158
  • I think about, like, drug usage.
  • 00:15:14.192 --> 00:15:16.828
  • Drug arrests are up,like, over 400%
  • 00:15:16.861 --> 00:15:23.868
  • since 1970, drugs.
  • 00:15:23.901 --> 00:15:28.139
  • You think about sexualpromiscuity, 20 million new
  • 00:15:28.172 --> 00:15:32.877
  • cases of sexually-transmitteddiseases are reported each and
  • 00:15:32.910 --> 00:15:36.848
  • every year.
  • 00:15:36.881 --> 00:15:39.050
  • Out-of-wedlock births, deathsfrom SUVs.
  • 00:15:39.083 --> 00:15:47.492
  • That's probably true, too.
  • 00:15:47.525 --> 00:15:48.860
  • Deaths from STDs, that'sunbelievable, it really,
  • 00:15:48.893 --> 00:15:53.264
  • really is.
  • 00:15:53.297 --> 00:15:54.632
  • And you think about thepolitical climate.
  • 00:15:54.665 --> 00:15:55.967
  • I mean, who are you gonna votefor?
  • 00:15:56.000 --> 00:15:58.336
  • It's almost like would I ratherget shot or stabbed, you know?
  • 00:15:58.369 --> 00:16:01.739
  • So, a theft, thank you, a theftoccurs every 14-that was good.
  • 00:16:01.773 --> 00:16:07.812
  • A theft occurs every 14.6seconds.
  • 00:16:07.845 --> 00:16:11.182
  • Increased violence, you have allthese people running around, all
  • 00:16:11.215 --> 00:16:15.186
  • these people from ISIS and AlQaeda, and doin' this and that,
  • 00:16:15.219 --> 00:16:19.557
  • and they're all about murder,all about this, and yet the
  • 00:16:19.590 --> 00:16:23.227
  • Muslim leaders will not evencome up and denounce them.
  • 00:16:23.261 --> 00:16:27.432
  • I mean, evil is rampant in ourworld today.
  • 00:16:27.465 --> 00:16:30.368
  • And our own leaders, they justkinda let it happen.
  • 00:16:30.401 --> 00:16:33.237
  • They just let it go.
  • 00:16:33.271 --> 00:16:35.206
  • So, the end times, I believe, isdefinitely approaching.
  • 00:16:35.239 --> 00:16:40.344
  • As we look, we see the stage isset for a charismatic
  • 00:16:40.378 --> 00:16:44.282
  • world leader.
  • 00:16:44.315 --> 00:16:45.616
  • The stage is set for a one worldreligion, one world currency.
  • 00:16:45.650 --> 00:16:49.654
  • The stage is set for the mark ofthe Beast.
  • 00:16:49.687 --> 00:16:52.323
  • So, here are some things,because of this, that I need to
  • 00:16:52.356 --> 00:16:55.960
  • apply and take home from this.
  • 00:16:55.993 --> 00:16:59.530
  • So, I've got the rapture, I meanrapture, okay, what does that
  • 00:16:59.564 --> 00:17:04.035
  • mean to me?
  • 00:17:04.068 --> 00:17:05.403
  • I've got the tribulation.
  • 00:17:05.436 --> 00:17:06.737
  • Okay, what does that mean to me?
  • 00:17:06.771 --> 00:17:08.106
  • I've got the second coming ofJesus, you know, I've got the
  • 00:17:08.139 --> 00:17:12.043
  • thousand years, and then I'vegot the the final judgment.
  • 00:17:12.076 --> 00:17:17.215
  • Well, what does that mean to me?
  • 00:17:17.248 --> 00:17:18.783
  • Several things, it should leadto hope.
  • 00:17:18.816 --> 00:17:22.453
  • We want hope in this world.
  • 00:17:22.487 --> 00:17:25.423
  • We have hope in Christ.
  • 00:17:25.456 --> 00:17:27.492
  • Because we have our eternitysecure, we have hope in Christ.
  • 00:17:27.525 --> 00:17:31.129
  • And the Bible tells you and methat even those of us who are
  • 00:17:31.162 --> 00:17:35.066
  • Christ followers will be judged.
  • 00:17:35.099 --> 00:17:38.936
  • Now, I'm not talkin' aboutheaven or hell, if you're a
  • 00:17:38.970 --> 00:17:41.706
  • believer, you're goin' toheaven.
  • 00:17:41.739 --> 00:17:44.909
  • But the Bible does say we'll beheld accountable regarding what
  • 00:17:44.942 --> 00:17:49.380
  • we did with the opportunities,with the avenues, with the
  • 00:17:49.413 --> 00:17:53.751
  • abilities that God has given us.
  • 00:17:53.784 --> 00:17:57.155
  • So, there will be tears inheaven.
  • 00:17:57.188 --> 00:18:00.091
  • When we are judged, everythingin our lives will be laid bare.
  • 00:18:00.124 --> 00:18:04.061
  • It's like they'll be on thesegiant screens.
  • 00:18:04.095 --> 00:18:06.230
  • Every thought, every act ofanger, every moment of greed,
  • 00:18:06.264 --> 00:18:11.903
  • materialism, envy, lust,everything will be right there
  • 00:18:11.936 --> 00:18:19.777
  • in front of the brilliant blazeof God's glory.
  • 00:18:19.810 --> 00:18:25.616
  • So, that should motivate you meto go, "Wow."
  • 00:18:25.650 --> 00:18:29.020
  • And we're not perfect, but wow,what am I doing with my talent?
  • 00:18:29.053 --> 00:18:35.059
  • What am I doing with myresources?
  • 00:18:35.092 --> 00:18:37.728
  • What am I doing with my ability?
  • 00:18:37.762 --> 00:18:40.431
  • God will look at some and go,"You had such a leadership gift,
  • 00:18:40.464 --> 00:18:44.535
  • but you squandered it.
  • 00:18:44.569 --> 00:18:46.771
  • Man, I gave you so manyopportunities to make money, yet
  • 00:18:46.804 --> 00:18:50.374
  • you spent it on yourself, andthis and that, and here
  • 00:18:50.408 --> 00:18:53.344
  • Fellowship was doing this, andgrowing, and building, and you
  • 00:18:53.377 --> 00:18:57.148
  • didn't step up, what?
  • 00:18:57.181 --> 00:18:59.984
  • Here your neighbor was lost andon their way to hell, and I put
  • 00:19:00.017 --> 00:19:05.189
  • you with 'em, you know, I hadyour paths intersect.
  • 00:19:05.223 --> 00:19:07.959
  • What did you do with it?"
  • 00:19:07.992 --> 00:19:09.327
  • Yes, it should cause a urgency,right?
  • 00:19:09.360 --> 00:19:15.299
  • It should cause us to do thatand, then to also realize, too,
  • 00:19:15.333 --> 00:19:19.136
  • when we think about thistimeline, those without Jesus
  • 00:19:19.170 --> 00:19:22.707
  • will go to hell.
  • 00:19:22.740 --> 00:19:24.342
  • Now, the Bible says that everyknee will bow, every tongue will
  • 00:19:24.375 --> 00:19:27.878
  • confess that Jesus is Lord.
  • 00:19:27.912 --> 00:19:29.247
  • What does that mean?
  • 00:19:29.280 --> 00:19:30.581
  • Well, the last scene, that thosewho are away from God will have
  • 00:19:30.615 --> 00:19:34.719
  • before they go to hell is thatof Jesus on his throne.
  • 00:19:34.752 --> 00:19:37.788
  • But then it'll be too late.
  • 00:19:37.822 --> 00:19:39.156
  • No deal making, no secondchance, no wheeling and dealing,
  • 00:19:39.190 --> 00:19:43.361
  • no my bad, no well, now I gotall my philosophical
  • 00:19:43.394 --> 00:19:46.931
  • questions answered.
  • 00:19:46.964 --> 00:19:48.266
  • Well, now I said--no, no, no,no, no.
  • 00:19:48.299 --> 00:19:49.867
  • Oh, I believe my biology teacherat A&M, or University of Miami,
  • 00:19:49.900 --> 00:19:54.005
  • too late.
  • 00:19:54.038 --> 00:19:55.539
  • It's too late.
  • 00:19:55.573 --> 00:19:56.874
  • That's why urgency, butChristians, we should be the
  • 00:19:56.907 --> 00:19:59.277
  • most positive, energetic,hopeful people around.
  • 00:19:59.310 --> 00:20:02.146
  • So, this should lead to hope.
  • 00:20:02.179 --> 00:20:03.714
  • Number two, it should help ussee the temporal versus
  • 00:20:03.748 --> 00:20:06.784
  • the eternal.
  • 00:20:06.817 --> 00:20:08.119
  • Obviously, matter matters, we'rehere and we're in, and we're
  • 00:20:08.152 --> 00:20:11.989
  • around this temporal place, andyes, one day, there's gonna be a
  • 00:20:12.023 --> 00:20:14.959
  • new heaven and a new earth andall that, yet we should have one
  • 00:20:14.992 --> 00:20:19.330
  • eye on the temporal, and theother eye on the eternal.
  • 00:20:19.363 --> 00:20:26.003
  • It's like I said the other day,you know, did you guys see the
  • 00:20:26.037 --> 00:20:29.807
  • National Championship?
  • 00:20:29.840 --> 00:20:32.243
  • One of the best games I've everseen in my life.
  • 00:20:32.276 --> 00:20:34.845
  • The guy that scored and the guythat passed the pass to the guy
  • 00:20:34.879 --> 00:20:39.350
  • that scored, they did abrilliant job of clock
  • 00:20:39.383 --> 00:20:42.019
  • management, all the way down tothe end.
  • 00:20:42.053 --> 00:20:45.056
  • The time was melting off, heflipped the pass over to the
  • 00:20:45.089 --> 00:20:48.392
  • guy, the guy shot it, and whenthe ball was in the air,
  • 00:20:48.426 --> 00:20:51.896
  • literally, when it went throughthe net, game was over.
  • 00:20:51.929 --> 00:20:55.499
  • Perfect time management, clockmanagement.
  • 00:20:55.533 --> 00:20:59.270
  • That is what we have to have.
  • 00:20:59.303 --> 00:21:01.005
  • The clock is ticking.
  • 00:21:01.038 --> 00:21:02.340
  • The time is melting.
  • 00:21:02.373 --> 00:21:03.874
  • Don't so concentrate on theclock that you forget to play.
  • 00:21:03.908 --> 00:21:07.978
  • Still take your shot, still doyour stuff.
  • 00:21:08.012 --> 00:21:11.649
  • So, we need to think about that.
  • 00:21:11.682 --> 00:21:14.018
  • We need to think about, okay,when I face God, and I'm talkin'
  • 00:21:14.051 --> 00:21:17.655
  • to believers now, when he judgesme, and I love how people say,
  • 00:21:17.688 --> 00:21:22.093
  • "Don't judge me, man."
  • 00:21:22.126 --> 00:21:24.995
  • We can't judge anyone, we're notGod.
  • 00:21:25.029 --> 00:21:28.733
  • People say that because theydon't like their stuff, you
  • 00:21:28.766 --> 00:21:30.968
  • know, being confronted, theirsin being pointed out.
  • 00:21:31.001 --> 00:21:33.471
  • That has nothing to do withjudgment, they're
  • 00:21:33.504 --> 00:21:34.839
  • just convicted.
  • 00:21:34.872 --> 00:21:36.207
  • "Don't judge me."
  • 00:21:36.240 --> 00:21:37.541
  • So, we need to think about thejudgment seat of God.
  • 00:21:37.575 --> 00:21:44.248
  • How we have this time ofaccountability, this time before
  • 00:21:44.281 --> 00:21:48.586
  • God, so we need to do the bestwith what God has given us.
  • 00:21:48.619 --> 00:21:52.456
  • And look at what God has givenus.
  • 00:21:52.490 --> 00:21:54.792
  • Amazing, amazing, amazing, sothe temporal versus the eternal.
  • 00:21:54.825 --> 00:22:00.564
  • Everybody's gonna live forever,that's why we wanna take as many
  • 00:22:00.598 --> 00:22:04.769
  • people possible with us toheaven, period, at
  • 00:22:04.802 --> 00:22:06.904
  • Fellowship Church.
  • 00:22:06.937 --> 00:22:08.239
  • Number three, I wanna challengeyou, and this series should make
  • 00:22:08.272 --> 00:22:12.109
  • me challenged, this timelineshould make everyone really have
  • 00:22:12.143 --> 00:22:15.980
  • the energy to pray for others.
  • 00:22:16.013 --> 00:22:19.550
  • We should pray for believers,and also, we should pray for
  • 00:22:19.583 --> 00:22:23.154
  • those people who don't knowChrist personally.
  • 00:22:23.187 --> 00:22:26.223
  • Pray those high-risk prayers.
  • 00:22:26.257 --> 00:22:28.993
  • In our prayer journals, weshould have names all the time,
  • 00:22:29.026 --> 00:22:32.430
  • people that we see who don'tknow the Lord.
  • 00:22:32.463 --> 00:22:35.533
  • When God puts someone on yourheart, pray for them.
  • 00:22:35.566 --> 00:22:39.236
  • When you see someone, pray forthem.
  • 00:22:39.270 --> 00:22:41.405
  • And as you pray for them,situations, opportunities will
  • 00:22:41.439 --> 00:22:45.810
  • happen, and we pray because, Imean, we're, I mean, the clock
  • 00:22:45.843 --> 00:22:49.513
  • is melting down.
  • 00:22:49.547 --> 00:22:51.282
  • And the last thing that I wannasuggest is, I pray that this
  • 00:22:51.315 --> 00:22:56.821
  • changes your life and mine, andchanges the course of
  • 00:22:56.854 --> 00:23:02.026
  • Fellowship Church.
  • 00:23:02.059 --> 00:23:03.627
  • It should be about change.
  • 00:23:03.661 --> 00:23:04.962
  • Information is great, but thisis about transformation.
  • 00:23:04.995 --> 00:23:08.032
  • We do all of this becauseeverybody is living in eternity.
  • 00:23:08.065 --> 00:23:11.869
  • We do all of this because heavenis real and hell is real.
  • 00:23:11.902 --> 00:23:15.406
  • That's why we do what we do.
  • 00:23:15.439 --> 00:23:18.843
  • And that's why we have such anurgency.
  • 00:23:18.876 --> 00:23:22.379
  • Jesus is coming back.
  • 00:23:22.413 --> 00:23:24.748
  • Things that are out of placewill be put back in place.
  • 00:23:24.782 --> 00:23:28.686
  • We'll live forever and ever, butremember, what you're doing now
  • 00:23:28.719 --> 00:23:35.159
  • affects your forever.
  • 00:23:35.192 --> 00:23:39.997
  • As our heads are bowed and eyesare closed, Father, thank you
  • 00:23:40.030 --> 00:23:42.433
  • for this message.
  • 00:23:42.466 --> 00:23:43.801
  • Thank you for the fact that wecan study your word.
  • 00:23:43.834 --> 00:23:45.870
  • Thank you for this amazing bookof the reveal, and I ask God
  • 00:23:45.903 --> 00:23:50.875
  • that those of us who arebelievers have a new faith, a
  • 00:23:50.908 --> 00:23:55.379
  • new vigor, a new focus, a newvision, because of
  • 00:23:55.412 --> 00:23:59.149
  • your timeline.
  • 00:23:59.183 --> 00:24:00.484
  • I pray for those here who havenever received you, that you
  • 00:24:00.518 --> 00:24:03.354
  • would make the decision, thatyou would take the step to say,
  • 00:24:03.387 --> 00:24:05.856
  • "Jesus, take control of mylife."
  • 00:24:05.890 --> 00:24:08.559
  • We ask all these things inChrist's name, amen.
  • 00:24:08.592 --> 00:24:12.363

  • Life's Greatest Phobias."
  • 00:24:27.144 --> 00:24:28.612
  • All we have to do is look aroundat our culture, and we see a
  • 00:24:28.646 --> 00:24:31.649
  • frontier of fear.
  • 00:24:31.682 --> 00:24:33.017
  • Fear is everywhere.
  • 00:24:33.050 --> 00:24:34.652
  • We're made to fear God.
  • 00:24:34.685 --> 00:24:36.420
  • When we fear God, we shouldn'tfear anything.
  • 00:24:36.453 --> 00:24:38.656
  • But if we don't fear God, weshould fear everything.
