  • WHEN THE LOST ARE FOUND.
  • 00:00:01.200 --> 00:00:04.050
  • O CAN YOU HEAR ALL THE ANGELS ARE SINGING
  • 00:00:04.080 --> 00:00:08.100
  • THIS IS THE DAY THE DAY WHEN LIFE BEGINS.
  • 00:00:08.130 --> 00:00:14.290
  • 00:00:15.020 --> 00:00:16.130
  • WHY DON'T YOU GRAB YOUR BIBLES AND TURN TO
  • 00:00:16.160 --> 00:00:18.250
  • 1 THESSALONIANS CHAPTER 4.
  • 00:00:18.280 --> 00:00:23.270
  • IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHERE THAT IS, IT'S RIGHT AFTER
  • 00:00:24.000 --> 00:00:26.080
  • 1 THESSALONIANS CHAPTER 3.
  • 00:00:26.110 --> 00:00:29.100
  • THE TITLE OF MY MESSAGE IS THE RAPTURE AND REVIVAL.
  • 00:00:29.130 --> 00:00:33.110
  • SO WE'RE TALKING ABOUT WHAT IS KNOWN AS THE
  • 00:00:33.140 --> 00:00:36.040
  • JESUS MOVEMENT OR THE JESUS REVOLUTION AS
  • 00:00:36.070 --> 00:00:39.190
  • TIME MAGAZINE DUBBED IT.
  • 00:00:39.220 --> 00:00:41.240
  • WE DIDN'T CALL IT A REVOLUTION IN THE DAY,
  • 00:00:41.270 --> 00:00:44.080
  • BUT AS WE LOOK BACK WITH 20/20 HINDSIGHT,
  • 00:00:44.110 --> 00:00:47.100
  • I WOULD SAY IT WAS A REVOLUTION BECAUSE
  • 00:00:47.130 --> 00:00:50.030
  • A REVOLUTION IS AN UPHEAVAL.
  • 00:00:50.060 --> 00:00:52.090
  • IT'S A CHANGE AND THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT IT WAS.
  • 00:00:52.120 --> 00:00:55.080
  • IT CHANGED THE CULTURE AND WITHOUT A QUESTION, IT WAS
  • 00:00:55.110 --> 00:00:59.140
  • A WORK OF THE HOLY SPIRIT AND OUR PRAYER IS THAT
  • 00:00:59.170 --> 00:01:03.020
  • IT WILL HAPPEN AGAIN.
  • 00:01:03.050 --> 00:01:04.160
  • REMEMBER, I MADE THE DISTINCTION AMERICA
  • 00:01:04.190 --> 00:01:07.100
  • NEEDS AN AWAKENING; THE CHURCH NEEDS A REVIVAL.
  • 00:01:07.130 --> 00:01:12.050
  • SO WE NEED TO PRAY THAT THE LORD WOULD SEND A
  • 00:01:12.080 --> 00:01:14.200
  • SPIRITUAL AWAKENING TO OUR NATION BUT THAT HE WOULD
  • 00:01:14.230 --> 00:01:17.220
  • SEND A REVIVAL TO THE CHURCH AND REALLY
  • 00:01:17.250 --> 00:01:20.090
  • WHAT IS THE CHURCH?
  • 00:01:20.120 --> 00:01:21.030
  • IT'S NOT A BUILDING.
  • 00:01:21.060 --> 00:01:22.050
  • IT'S PEOPLE. IT'S YOU.
  • 00:01:22.080 --> 00:01:23.090
  • YOU'RE THE CHURCH. I'M THE CHURCH.
  • 00:01:23.120 --> 00:01:25.100
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THAT WE'RE THE
  • 00:01:25.130 --> 00:01:26.260
  • TEMPLE OF GOD FITTED TOGETHER.
  • 00:01:26.290 --> 00:01:29.250
  • SO LET REVIVAL START WITH YOU.
  • 00:01:29.280 --> 00:01:32.130
  • IT'S EASY TO POINT A FINGER AND SAY MAN THEY
  • 00:01:32.160 --> 00:01:34.080
  • NEED TO GET THEIR LIFE TOGETHER.
  • 00:01:34.110 --> 00:01:35.230
  • THEY NEED TO CHANGE THIS OR THAT.
  • 00:01:35.260 --> 00:01:37.080
  • WELL MAYBE THEY DO, BUT WHAT ABOUT YOU?
  • 00:01:37.110 --> 00:01:39.260
  • IT STARTS WITH YOU AS AN INDIVIDUAL.
  • 00:01:39.290 --> 00:01:42.010
  • REMEMBER THE WORD REVIVE MEANS TO BE
  • 00:01:42.040 --> 00:01:43.210
  • RESTORED TO ORIGINAL CONDITION.
  • 00:01:43.240 --> 00:01:46.140
  • SO WE'RE GETTING BACK TO, WELL, THE CHURCH
  • 00:01:46.170 --> 00:01:49.170
  • THE WAY JESUS DID IT IN THE FIRST CENTURY.
  • 00:01:49.200 --> 00:01:52.270
  • POINT NUMBER ONE:
  • 00:01:53.000 --> 00:01:54.260
  • LET ME SAY THAT AGAIN.
  • 00:02:00.120 --> 00:02:02.010
  • WE WANT TO SEE A SPIRITUAL AWAKENING HAPPEN IN OUR
  • 00:02:02.040 --> 00:02:04.250
  • NATION, WE NEED TO PRAY WITH PASSION.
  • 00:02:04.280 --> 00:02:07.010
  • REMEMBER THE STORY OF THAT WOMAN WHO WAS PRAYING FOR
  • 00:02:07.040 --> 00:02:09.020
  • HER CHILD TO BE DELIVERED FROM THE POWER OF SATAN.
  • 00:02:09.050 --> 00:02:12.100
  • SHE SAW JESUS.
  • 00:02:12.130 --> 00:02:13.130
  • SHE SAID, "HAVE MERCY UPON ME, OH SON OF DAVID,
  • 00:02:13.160 --> 00:02:16.060
  • MY DAUGHTER IS POSSESSED BY A DEMON."
  • 00:02:16.090 --> 00:02:18.140
  • THE DISCIPLES ACTUALLY CAME TO HER AND SAID "STOP IT.
  • 00:02:18.170 --> 00:02:21.140
  • YOU'RE CREATING A SCENE. STOP BOTHERING US."
  • 00:02:21.170 --> 00:02:24.240
  • AND JESUS LISTENED TO HER BECAUSE SHE WOULD NOT STOP
  • 00:02:24.270 --> 00:02:28.130
  • BECAUSE SHE PRESSED ON AND JESUS TURNS TO HER AND
  • 00:02:28.160 --> 00:02:32.050
  • SAYS, "DEAR WOMAN, YOUR FAITH IS GREAT."
  • 00:02:32.080 --> 00:02:34.200
  • IN OTHER WORDS, I HEARD YOU.
  • 00:02:34.230 --> 00:02:36.060
  • WHAT IS IT YOU WANT?
  • 00:02:36.090 --> 00:02:37.210
  • SHE SAYS, "I WANT MY DAUGHTER TO BE HEALED."
  • 00:02:37.240 --> 00:02:41.070
  • AND HE SAYS, "YOUR PRAYER IS ANSWERED."
  • 00:02:41.100 --> 00:02:45.020
  • AND SOMETIMES I THINK ONE OF THE REASONS WE DON'T
  • 00:02:45.050 --> 00:02:47.290
  • SEE OUR PRAYERS ANSWERED IS WE DON'T PRAY WITH PASSION.
  • 00:02:48.020 --> 00:02:51.120
  • WE CAN'T EXPECT GOD TO PUT MUCH PASSION IN ANSWERING
  • 00:02:51.150 --> 00:02:57.010
  • A PRAYER IF WE WON'T PUT ANY PASSION
  • 00:02:57.040 --> 00:02:59.020
  • IN OFFERING A PRAYER TO HIM.
  • 00:02:59.050 --> 00:03:01.270
  • THERE'S A STORY IN THE BOOK OF ACTS OF WHEN
  • 00:03:02.000 --> 00:03:04.250
  • PETER WAS IN PRISON.
  • 00:03:04.280 --> 00:03:05.280
  • THIS WAS AFTER JAMES HAD BEEN BEHEADED BY
  • 00:03:06.010 --> 00:03:09.140
  • KING HEROD AND PETER WAS NEXT.
  • 00:03:09.170 --> 00:03:11.140
  • SO WE READ IN ACTS CHAPTER 12 "CONSTANT PRAYER WAS
  • 00:03:11.170 --> 00:03:14.230
  • OFFERED TO GOD FOR HIM BY THE CHURCH," AND THAT
  • 00:03:14.260 --> 00:03:17.030
  • WOULD BETTER BE TRANSLATED "THE CHURCH PRAYED
  • 00:03:17.060 --> 00:03:19.040
  • FERVENTLY TO GOD."
  • 00:03:19.070 --> 00:03:21.060
  • WE NEED TO LEARN HOW TO PRAY FERVENTLY.
  • 00:03:21.090 --> 00:03:24.260
  • IT'S AN IMPORTANT WORD.
  • 00:03:24.290 --> 00:03:26.150
  • IT MEANS TO DISPLAY INTENSE PASSION.
  • 00:03:26.180 --> 00:03:29.240
  • IT MEANS TO BE SINCERE. WHOLE-HEARTED.
  • 00:03:29.270 --> 00:03:32.260
  • IT'S SORT OF LIKE THE PRAYER THAT ELIJAH PRAYED.
  • 00:03:32.290 --> 00:03:36.070
  • UNDERSTAND, ELIJAH WAS A REALLY ORDINARY GUY.
  • 00:03:36.100 --> 00:03:39.000
  • WE THINK HE WAS LIKE SUPERMAN OR SOMETHING.
  • 00:03:39.030 --> 00:03:41.100
  • HE WAS JUST LIKE YOU.
  • 00:03:41.130 --> 00:03:42.190
  • IN FACT, HE WAS GIVEN TO BOUTS WITH DEPRESSION.
  • 00:03:42.220 --> 00:03:45.090
  • HE WAS SO DEPRESSED ONE DAY HE WANTED
  • 00:03:45.120 --> 00:03:47.140
  • TO TAKE HIS OWN LIFE.
  • 00:03:47.170 --> 00:03:49.040
  • SO THIS IS A HUMAN LIKE US.
  • 00:03:49.070 --> 00:03:51.100
  • A FLESH AND BLOOD GUY, BUT THE BIBLE TELLS US IN
  • 00:03:51.130 --> 00:03:54.100
  • JAMES 5:16 "THE FERVENT PRAYER OF A RIGHTEOUS MAN
  • 00:03:54.130 --> 00:03:57.180
  • HAS GREAT POWER AND PRODUCES WONDERFUL RESULTS."
  • 00:03:57.210 --> 00:04:00.190
  • ELIJAH WAS AS HUMAN AS WE ARE, YET WHEN HE PRAYED
  • 00:04:00.220 --> 00:04:03.260
  • FERVENTLY THAT NO RAIN WOULD FALL, NONE FELL FOR
  • 00:04:03.290 --> 00:04:07.160
  • THREE AND A HALF YEARS AND HE PRAYED AGAIN
  • 00:04:07.190 --> 00:04:09.270
  • AND THE SKY SENT DOWN RAIN.
  • 00:04:10.000 --> 00:04:12.080
  • SO WE'LL SAY, "I PRAYED ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:04:12.110 --> 00:04:14.030
  • OKAY GOOD, BUT WHAT KIND OF A PRAYER WAS IT?
  • 00:04:14.060 --> 00:04:16.260
  • IS IT SORT OF A
  • 00:04:16.290 --> 00:04:17.220
  • [yawn]
  • 00:04:17.250 --> 00:04:21.030
  • "LORD, SAVE THE WORLD, AMEN"?
  • 00:04:21.060 --> 00:04:22.090
  • [snores]
  • 00:04:22.120 --> 00:04:23.150
  • I MEAN YOU KNOW, REALLY. THAT'S NOT A PRAYER.
  • 00:04:23.180 --> 00:04:26.120
  • YOU KNOW, PRAY WITH SOME PASSION.
  • 00:04:26.150 --> 00:04:28.000
  • PRAY WITH SOME FERVOR.
  • 00:04:28.030 --> 00:04:29.080
  • THAT'S THE IDEA.
  • 00:04:29.110 --> 00:04:30.180
  • NO ONE IS BEYOND THE REACH OF GOD.
  • 00:04:30.210 --> 00:04:32.210
  • I DON'T CARE HOW WICKED THEY ARE.
  • 00:04:32.240 --> 00:04:34.180
  • I DON'T CARE IF THEY'RE A FULL-BLOWN ATHEIST.
  • 00:04:34.210 --> 00:04:36.280
  • I DON'T CARE IF THEY SCREAM AT YOU WHEN YOU
  • 00:04:37.010 --> 00:04:39.040
  • SHARE THE GOSPEL WITH THEM.
  • 00:04:39.070 --> 00:04:40.090
  • DON'T GIVE UP ON THEM.
  • 00:04:40.120 --> 00:04:41.210
  • IT MIGHT BE YOUR MOM, IT MIGHT BE YOUR DAD,
  • 00:04:41.240 --> 00:04:43.180
  • IT MIGHT BE YOUR GRANDPARENTS.
  • 00:04:43.210 --> 00:04:45.210
  • HEY, IT COULD EVEN BE YOUR SON OR YOUR DAUGHTER,
  • 00:04:45.240 --> 00:04:48.020
  • A BROTHER OR A SISTER, A COWORKER, IT COULD BE YOUR
  • 00:04:48.050 --> 00:04:50.210
  • WIFE, IT COULD BE YOUR HUSBAND.
  • 00:04:50.240 --> 00:04:52.190
  • WHOEVER IT IS.
  • 00:04:52.220 --> 00:04:53.290
  • A CRANKY NEIGHBOR, RIGHT.
  • 00:04:54.020 --> 00:04:55.130
  • "THEY'LL NEVER COME TO CHRIST."
  • 00:04:55.160 --> 00:04:57.100
  • HOW DO YOU KNOW?
  • 00:04:57.130 --> 00:04:58.110
  • HAVE YOU TRIED PRAYING FOR THEM?
  • 00:04:58.140 --> 00:05:00.110
  • SO WE NEED TO REMEMBER TO PRAY WITH GREAT PASSION.
  • 00:05:00.140 --> 00:05:04.140
  • ALL RIGHT SO LET'S SORT OF REVIEW SOME OF THE
  • 00:05:04.170 --> 00:05:06.170
  • EARMARKS OF THE LAST GREAT SPIRITUAL AWAKENING.
  • 00:05:06.200 --> 00:05:10.020
  • REMEMBER I TOLD YOU THERE WAS A SENSE
  • 00:05:10.050 --> 00:05:11.240
  • OF EXPECTANCY IN THE SERVICE.
  • 00:05:11.270 --> 00:05:14.090
  • NO ONE WAS EVER LATE FOR CHURCH.
  • 00:05:14.120 --> 00:05:16.190
  • WE WANTED TO SEE WHAT THE LORD WOULD DO.
  • 00:05:16.220 --> 00:05:18.210
  • I THINK THAT'S THE RIGHT WAY TO COME TO CHURCH.
  • 00:05:18.240 --> 00:05:20.180
  • WE COME EXPECTING GOD TO WORK.
  • 00:05:20.210 --> 00:05:23.110
  • NUMBER TWO: THE WORD OF GOD WAS TAUGHT IN EVERY SERVICE.
  • 00:05:23.140 --> 00:05:26.050
  • LISTEN, I OFFER THEOLOGY WITHOUT APOLOGY.
  • 00:05:26.080 --> 00:05:30.210
  • I'M ALWAYS GOING TO CRACK OPEN THE BIBLE.
  • 00:05:30.240 --> 00:05:32.250
  • I THINK IT'S GREAT TO HAVE WORSHIP.
  • 00:05:32.280 --> 00:05:35.050
  • GREAT TO PRAY.
  • 00:05:35.080 --> 00:05:36.090
  • WE WANT TO DO ALL OF THOSE THINGS, BUT I THINK WE
  • 00:05:36.120 --> 00:05:37.290
  • NEED TO HEAR FROM THE WORD OF GOD BECAUSE THAT'S HOW
  • 00:05:38.020 --> 00:05:40.170
  • GOD SPEAKS TO US SO THAT'S SOMETHING THAT HAS ALWAYS
  • 00:05:40.200 --> 00:05:43.240
  • BEEN IMPORTANT TO US AND WAS IMPORTANT BACK THEN.
  • 00:05:43.270 --> 00:05:46.090
  • THIRDLY, THE PEOPLE PARTICIPATED IN THE WORSHIP.
  • 00:05:46.120 --> 00:05:49.240
  • YOU KNOW, YOU CAN JUST STAND IDLY BY AND WATCH
  • 00:05:49.270 --> 00:05:52.150
  • EVERYBODY ELSE DO IT OR YOU CAN JOIN IN AND YOU
  • 00:05:52.180 --> 00:05:55.100
  • MIGHT AS WELL START WORSHIPING BECAUSE WE
  • 00:05:55.130 --> 00:05:57.150
  • ARE GOING TO DO A LOT OF THAT IN HEAVEN.
  • 00:05:57.180 --> 00:05:59.260
  • SO THAT WAS VERY IMPORTANT.
  • 00:05:59.290 --> 00:06:01.080
  • ANOTHER THING IS PEOPLE BROUGHT NONBELIEVERS TO
  • 00:06:01.110 --> 00:06:03.220
  • CHURCH AND WE WOULD SEE PEOPLE COME TO CHRIST
  • 00:06:03.250 --> 00:06:05.290
  • IN EVERY SERVICE.
  • 00:06:06.020 --> 00:06:07.170
  • I THINK IT'S ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA TO BRING A FRIEND.
  • 00:06:07.200 --> 00:06:10.160
  • WITH ONE HAND REACH OUT TO JESUS AND WITH
  • 00:06:10.190 --> 00:06:13.240
  • THE OTHER BRING A FRIEND.
  • 00:06:13.270 --> 00:06:15.180
  • BUT HERE'S THE THING I WANT TO FOCUS ON IN THIS MESSAGE:
  • 00:06:15.210 --> 00:06:18.090
  • WE BELIEVED IN THE IMMINENT RETURN OF JESUS.
  • 00:06:18.120 --> 00:06:22.160
  • NOW THERE'S A LOT OF REASONS WE BELIEVE THAT.
  • 00:06:22.190 --> 00:06:24.060
  • A LOT OF THINGS WERE HAPPENING BACK IN THOSE
  • 00:06:24.090 --> 00:06:26.200
  • DAYS THAT I'LL GO INTO A LITTLE BIT MORE NEXT TIME,
  • 00:06:26.230 --> 00:06:29.050
  • BUT ISRAEL HAD BEEN REGATHERED TOGETHER AS
  • 00:06:29.080 --> 00:06:31.130
  • A NATION IN 1948 MAY 14.
  • 00:06:31.160 --> 00:06:35.070
  • EFFECTIVELY THAT STARTED THE
  • 00:06:35.100 --> 00:06:36.160
  • PROPHETIC TIME CLOCK CLICKING.
  • 00:06:36.190 --> 00:06:38.280
  • THERE ARE SIGNS OF THE TIMES BUT ISRAEL
  • 00:06:39.010 --> 00:06:41.190
  • IS A SUPER SIGN. IT'S A MEGA SIGN.
  • 00:06:41.220 --> 00:06:45.030
  • SO WE WATCH WITH GREAT INTEREST BECAUSE EZEKIEL
  • 00:06:45.060 --> 00:06:48.050
  • 37, 38, AND 39 TALKS ABOUT ISRAEL BEING SCATTERED TO
  • 00:06:48.080 --> 00:06:53.060
  • THE FOUR CORNERS OF THE PLANET, WHICH THEY WERE.
  • 00:06:53.090 --> 00:06:56.040
  • IT TALKS ABOUT THEM MIRACULOUSLY RETURNING TO
  • 00:06:56.070 --> 00:06:59.220
  • THEIR LAND, WHICH THEY OFFICIALLY DID IN 1948 ON
  • 00:06:59.250 --> 00:07:03.070
  • THE HEELS OF THE HORRIFIC HOLOCAUST WHERE 6 MILLION
  • 00:07:03.100 --> 00:07:07.290
  • JEWISH PEOPLE LOST THEIR LIVES WHEN THE NAZIS WERE
  • 00:07:08.020 --> 00:07:13.080
  • ENGAGING IN THEIR SO-CALLED FINAL
  • 00:07:13.110 --> 00:07:16.060
  • SOLUTION OF ANTI-SEMITISM.
  • 00:07:16.090 --> 00:07:18.280
  • SO THEY'RE A NATION AND THEY HAD SO MANY ENEMIES
  • 00:07:19.010 --> 00:07:23.050
  • AND THEY WERE ATTACKED IMMEDIATELY AND AGAINST
  • 00:07:23.080 --> 00:07:25.210
  • ALL ODDS THEY SURVIVED.
  • 00:07:25.240 --> 00:07:27.070
  • IN 1973 SOMETHING CALLED THE YOM KIPPUR WAR HAPPENED.
  • 00:07:27.100 --> 00:07:31.050
  • NOW IT WAS CALLED THAT BECAUSE THEIR ENEMIES
  • 00:07:31.080 --> 00:07:33.090
  • ATTACKED ON THE HIGH AND HOLIEST DAY
  • 00:07:33.120 --> 00:07:36.010
  • ON THE ISRAELI CALENDAR. SO MOST ISRAELIS WERE OFF.
  • 00:07:36.040 --> 00:07:39.200
  • THEY WERE WORSHIPING.
  • 00:07:39.230 --> 00:07:41.130
  • THEY WERE NOT PREPARED AND THIS MASSIVE ATTACK COMES.
  • 00:07:41.160 --> 00:07:44.100
  • NOT ONLY DID THEY DEFEND THEIR LAND, THEY EVEN
  • 00:07:44.130 --> 00:07:47.130
  • GAINED A LITTLE MORE LAND. SO IT WAS A MIRACLE.
  • 00:07:47.160 --> 00:07:50.060
  • HERE'S WHERE IT GOT INTERESTING IS RUSSIA
  • 00:07:50.090 --> 00:07:52.240
  • WAS FULLY BEHIND THIS ATTACK.
  • 00:07:52.270 --> 00:07:55.090
  • SO READING THE SCRIPTURE, AND WE'LL TALK ABOUT THIS
  • 00:07:55.120 --> 00:07:57.260
  • MORE NEXT TIME, THE BIBLE SAYS THAT WHEN THEY ARE
  • 00:07:57.290 --> 00:08:00.020
  • REGATHERED IN THEIR LAND AGAIN THEY'LL BE ATTACKED
  • 00:08:00.050 --> 00:08:02.250
  • FROM A MASSIVE NATION ON THEIR NORTH AND IF YOU GO
  • 00:08:02.280 --> 00:08:06.000
  • TO THE NORTH OF ISRAEL TODAY ON ANY MAP YOU'LL
  • 00:08:06.030 --> 00:08:08.120
  • FIND THE LANDMASS WE KNOW AS RUSSIA.
  • 00:08:08.150 --> 00:08:12.020
  • SO WHEN WE SEE THE NATIONS ATTACKING ISRAEL WITH
  • 00:08:12.050 --> 00:08:14.210
  • RUSSIA BEHIND IT, IT WAS ALMOST LIKE A
  • 00:08:14.240 --> 00:08:17.110
  • DRESS REHEARSAL FOR WHAT IS TO COME.
  • 00:08:17.140 --> 00:08:19.240
  • ONE DAY, WE DON'T KNOW WHEN THAT DAY WILL BE, A
  • 00:08:19.270 --> 00:08:22.260
  • NATION WILL ATTACK ISRAEL.
  • 00:08:22.290 --> 00:08:24.100
  • IF YOU READ THAT ON THE FRONT PAGE OF YOUR NEWSPAPER OR
  • 00:08:24.130 --> 00:08:27.150
  • ON YOUR NEWSFEED, LOOK UP BECAUSE YOUR
  • 00:08:27.180 --> 00:08:29.240
  • REDEMPTION IS DRAWING NEAR.
  • 00:08:29.270 --> 00:08:32.040
  • SO I BELIEVE WE'RE LIVING IN THE LAST DAYS.
  • 00:08:32.070 --> 00:08:37.010
  • I BELIEVE CHRIST COULD COME BACK AT ANY TIME
  • 00:08:37.040 --> 00:08:40.080
  • AND THE BIBLE TALKS A LOT ABOUT THIS.
  • 00:08:40.110 --> 00:08:42.130
  • THERE ARE 300 PASSAGES IN SCRIPTURE THAT DEAL
  • 00:08:42.160 --> 00:08:45.220
  • WITH THE RETURN OF CHRIST.
  • 00:08:45.250 --> 00:08:47.200
  • JESUS HIMSELF TALKED ABOUT IT 21 TIMES
  • 00:08:47.230 --> 00:08:51.020
  • WHEN HE WALKED THIS EARTH.
  • 00:08:51.050 --> 00:08:53.000
  • ONE VERSE IN EVERY 25 MENTIONS THE LORD'S RETURN.
  • 00:08:53.030 --> 00:08:56.290
  • WHAT SETS THE BIBLE APART FROM ALL OF THE RELIGIOUS
  • 00:08:57.020 --> 00:09:00.180
  • BOOKS IS THE BIBLE IS THE ONE BOOK THAT DARES
  • 00:09:00.210 --> 00:09:03.220
  • TO PREDICT THE FUTURE.
  • 00:09:03.250 --> 00:09:05.000
  • NOT ONCE, NOT TWICE, NOT THREE TIMES, NOT TEN
  • 00:09:05.030 --> 00:09:07.250
  • TIMES, BUT HUNDREDS OF TIMES AND NOW WE CAN LOOK
  • 00:09:07.280 --> 00:09:11.110
  • BACK IN RETROSPECT AND SEE THAT THOSE PROPHECIES THAT
  • 00:09:11.140 --> 00:09:15.170
  • ARE IN THE REAR VIEW MIRROR WERE FULFILLED AND
  • 00:09:15.200 --> 00:09:18.170
  • THEREFORE IF THOSE WERE FULFILLED EXACTLY AS GOD
  • 00:09:18.200 --> 00:09:21.130
  • SAID THEY WOULD BE, TAKE CHRISTMAS AS AN EXAMPLE,
  • 00:09:21.160 --> 00:09:24.130
  • MESSIAH WOULD BE BORN IN BETHLEHEM AND HE WOULD BE
  • 00:09:24.160 --> 00:09:28.140
  • BORN OF A VIRGIN AND IN ALL THE PROPHECIES THAT HE
  • 00:09:28.170 --> 00:09:31.130
  • WOULD BE A SON OF DAVID.
  • 00:09:31.160 --> 00:09:32.290
  • ALL THE THINGS THE BIBLE SAID THOSE
  • 00:09:33.020 --> 00:09:34.110
  • WERE FULFILLED TO THE T. HE WOULD DIE ON THE CROSS.
  • 00:09:34.140 --> 00:09:36.180
  • ALL OF THE WAS PROPHESIED IN THE OLD TESTAMENT.
  • 00:09:36.210 --> 00:09:39.020
  • SO WHEN WE READ ABOUT THE RETURN OF JESUS LISTEN
  • 00:09:39.050 --> 00:09:42.100
  • YOU CAN TAKE IT TO THE BANK. HE'S GOING TO COME.
  • 00:09:42.130 --> 00:09:45.280
  • GO AHEAD AND CLAP FOR THAT.
  • 00:09:46.010 --> 00:09:48.020
  • THAT'S A GOOD ONE.
  • 00:09:48.050 --> 00:09:49.180
  • [applause]
  • 00:09:49.210 --> 00:09:53.000
  • SO I'LL DIVE IN A LITTLE BIT DEEPER INTO THESE
  • 00:09:53.030 --> 00:09:54.170
  • THINGS NEXT TIME, BUT ANOTHER THING THAT'S GOING
  • 00:09:54.200 --> 00:09:56.280
  • TO HAPPEN IN THE LAST DAYS IS AN ANTI-CHRIST IS
  • 00:09:57.010 --> 00:10:00.210
  • GOING TO EMERGE ON THE SCENE.
  • 00:10:00.240 --> 00:10:02.120
  • HE'S SPOKEN OF IN MANY PLACES IN SCRIPTURE BUT
  • 00:10:02.150 --> 00:10:06.270
  • A LOT OF THE VERSES THAT ADDRESS HIM ARE FOUND
  • 00:10:07.000 --> 00:10:09.150
  • IN THE BOOK OF REVELATION.
  • 00:10:09.180 --> 00:10:11.070
  • UNDERSTAND THAT THE WORD ANTI AS IN ANTI-CHRIST
  • 00:10:11.100 --> 00:10:14.120
  • DOES NOT JUST MEAN AGAINST, IT ALSO MEANS INSTEAD OF.
  • 00:10:14.150 --> 00:10:18.080
  • HE'LL BE A FALSE MESSIAH.
  • 00:10:18.110 --> 00:10:19.280
  • HE'LL BE AN IMITATION JESUS.
  • 00:10:20.010 --> 00:10:22.070
  • LISTEN TO WHAT THE ANTI-CHRIST IS GOING TO DO.
  • 00:10:22.100 --> 00:10:25.000
  • HE'S GOING TO EMERGE ON THE SCENE AS A MAN OF PEACE.
  • 00:10:25.030 --> 00:10:27.220
  • HE'S GOING TO BRING ABOUT A NEW ECONOMIC SYSTEM
  • 00:10:27.250 --> 00:10:30.110
  • WHERE NO MAN WILL BUY OR SELL WITHOUT THIS SPECIAL MARK.
  • 00:10:30.140 --> 00:10:34.120
  • BACK IN THE 70S WE WERE TRYING TO WRAP OUR MINDS
  • 00:10:34.150 --> 00:10:36.290
  • AROUND HOW SUCH A THING COULD HAPPEN.
  • 00:10:37.020 --> 00:10:39.060
  • WE'RE NOT WRAPPING OUR MINDS AROUND IT ANYMORE, PEOPLE.
  • 00:10:39.090 --> 00:10:42.070
  • THE TECHNOLOGY IS HERE.
  • 00:10:42.100 --> 00:10:44.030
  • THE TECHNOLOGY IS ALREADY ON OUR PHONES, AND SOON IT
  • 00:10:44.060 --> 00:10:47.030
  • COULD BE ON OUR BODIES AND WE ALREADY KNOW THE
  • 00:10:47.060 --> 00:10:50.210
  • TECHNOLOGY THAT'S USED AND SURVEILLANCE AND IN
  • 00:10:50.240 --> 00:10:54.010
  • SO MANY OTHER AREAS.
  • 00:10:54.040 --> 00:10:55.040
  • EVERY PURCHASE YOU MAKE. EVERY PLACE YOU GO.
  • 00:10:55.070 --> 00:10:57.140
  • YOU CAN BE MONITORED. WE KNOW ALL THIS STUFF.
  • 00:10:57.170 --> 00:10:59.260
  • SO LITERALLY THE THINGS THAT THE BIBLE PROPHESIED
  • 00:10:59.290 --> 00:11:03.090
  • ARE HAPPENING BEFORE OUR VERY EYES.
  • 00:11:03.120 --> 00:11:05.270
  • WE SEE THINGS ARE IN PLACE FOR THAT LEADER TO EMERGE.
  • 00:11:06.000 --> 00:11:10.270
  • HE'LL BE HAILED BY SOME AS THE MESSIAH BECAUSE HE'LL
  • 00:11:11.000 --> 00:11:14.150
  • HELP THE JEWISH PEOPLE REBUILD THEIR TEMPLE.
  • 00:11:14.180 --> 00:11:17.050
  • I WAS IN ISRAEL YEARS AGO AND I WAS TALKING WITH AN
  • 00:11:17.080 --> 00:11:20.150
  • ISRAELI MAN, NOT A BELIEVER IN JESUS, AND HE
  • 00:11:20.180 --> 00:11:22.280
  • MENTIONED THE MESSIAH.
  • 00:11:23.010 --> 00:11:24.290
  • I SAID "TELL ME WHO YOU THINK THE MESSIAH IS.
  • 00:11:25.020 --> 00:11:27.260
  • WHAT WILL THE MESSIAH DO FOR YOU?"
  • 00:11:27.290 --> 00:11:29.120
  • HE SAYS, "I BELIEVE WHEN THE MESSIAH COMES HE WILL
  • 00:11:29.150 --> 00:11:32.080
  • BE A MAN, HE'LL BRING PEACE, AND HE'LL HELP
  • 00:11:32.110 --> 00:11:35.000
  • US REBUILD OUR TEMPLE."
  • 00:11:35.030 --> 00:11:37.100
  • I SAID, "SIR, YOU JUST DESCRIBED THE ANTI-CHRIST."
  • 00:11:37.130 --> 00:11:41.080
  • WHICH MAKES THE POINT.
  • 00:11:41.110 --> 00:11:43.130
  • ANTI JUST DOESN'T MEAN AGAINST; IT MEANS INSTEAD OF.
  • 00:11:43.160 --> 00:11:46.200
  • HE'LL BE A FALSE CHRIST.
  • 00:11:46.230 --> 00:11:48.150
  • AND THEN HE'LL REVEAL HIS TRUE COLORS. BUT YOU SEE,
  • 00:11:48.180 --> 00:11:51.170
  • YOU SAY, BUT WHY DO YOU SAY THAT?
  • 00:11:58.060 --> 00:11:59.070
  • LISTEN, 2 THESSALONIANS 2 SAYS, "THE MYSTERY OF
  • 00:11:59.100 --> 00:12:02.000
  • LAWLESSNESS IS ALREADY AT WORK.
  • 00:12:02.030 --> 00:12:03.260
  • HE WHO NOW RESTRAINS WILL DO SO UNTIL HE IS TAKEN OUT
  • 00:12:03.290 --> 00:12:07.170
  • OF THE WAY AND THEN THE LAWLESS ONE WILL BE
  • 00:12:07.200 --> 00:12:10.130
  • REVEALED WHOM THE LORD WILL CONSUME WITH THE
  • 00:12:10.160 --> 00:12:13.010
  • BREATH OF HIS MOUTH AND DESTROY WITH THE
  • 00:12:13.040 --> 00:12:15.040
  • BRIGHTNESS OF HIS COMING."
  • 00:12:15.070 --> 00:12:17.000
  • WHAT'S GOING TO BE TAKEN OUT OF WAY?
  • 00:12:17.030 --> 00:12:19.090
  • SOMETIMES PEOPLE THINK IT'S THE HOLY SPIRIT,
  • 00:12:19.120 --> 00:12:21.220
  • BUT ACTUALLY IT'S THE CHURCH.
  • 00:12:21.250 --> 00:12:24.120
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL NOT LEAVE THE EARTH ONCE
  • 00:12:24.150 --> 00:12:27.160
  • ANTI-CHRIST COMES ON THE SCENE.
  • 00:12:27.190 --> 00:12:30.250
  • THAT'S A MISUNDERSTANDING BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE GOING
  • 00:12:30.280 --> 00:12:33.240
  • TO COME TO CHRIST AFTER THE RAPTURE.
  • 00:12:33.270 --> 00:12:36.170
  • HOW CAN ANYONE COME TO CHRIST WITHOUT THE WORK
  • 00:12:36.200 --> 00:12:38.250
  • OF THE HOLY SPIRIT?
  • 00:12:38.280 --> 00:12:40.130
  • BUT THE WORK OF THE SPIRIT IN THE CHURCH IS COMPLETED
  • 00:12:40.160 --> 00:12:44.100
  • AND WE'RE CAUGHT UP TO MEET THE LORD SO HE CAN'T
  • 00:12:44.130 --> 00:12:47.050
  • BE REVEALED, HE BEING ANTI-CHRIST, UNTIL THE
  • 00:12:47.080 --> 00:12:49.220
  • CHURCH THAT IS ALL TRUE BELIEVERS ARE CAUGHT UP TO
  • 00:12:49.250 --> 00:12:52.280
  • MEET THE LORD IN THE AIR; THEREFORE, WE SHOULD
  • 00:12:53.010 --> 00:12:56.200
  • NOT BE LOOKING FOR ANTI-CHRIST, WE SHOULD
  • 00:12:56.230 --> 00:12:59.010
  • BE LOOKING FOR JESUS CHRIST. THAT'S VERY IMPORTANT.
  • 00:12:59.040 --> 00:13:02.160
  • [applause]
  • 00:13:02.190 --> 00:13:04.230
  • SOMETIMES PEOPLE WILL MAKE LIGHT OF IT.
  • 00:13:04.260 --> 00:13:06.250
  • YOU DON'T HEAR THIS TAUGHT AS MUCH AS YOU USED
  • 00:13:06.280 --> 00:13:09.000
  • TO HEAR IT TAUGHT.
  • 00:13:09.030 --> 00:13:10.220
  • THAT'S REALLY TOO BAD BECAUSE IT'S STILL IN
  • 00:13:10.250 --> 00:13:12.280
  • THE BIBLE AND IT'S STILL REAL AND
  • 00:13:13.010 --> 00:13:15.050
  • IT'S STILL GOING TO HAPPEN. WHAT IS THE RAPTURE?
  • 00:13:15.080 --> 00:13:19.220
  • THE RAPTURE IS WHEN CHRIST DESCENDS FROM HEAVEN FOR
  • 00:13:19.250 --> 00:13:23.270
  • HIS CHURCH AND WE'RE CAUGHT UP TO MEET
  • 00:13:24.000 --> 00:13:26.040
  • THE LORD IN THE AIR.
  • 00:13:26.070 --> 00:13:27.290
  • IN THAT MOMENT WE RECEIVE OUR NEW RESURRECTION BODIES.
  • 00:13:28.020 --> 00:13:31.270
  • IT'S ALSO THEN THAT WE ARE REUNITED WITH LOVED
  • 00:13:32.000 --> 00:13:34.280
  • ONES THAT HAVE PRECEDED US.
  • 00:13:35.010 --> 00:13:37.220
  • NOW CRITICS OF THE RAPTURE WILL SAY,
  • 00:13:37.250 --> 00:13:39.110
  • "WELL YOU CAN'T FIND THE WORD RAPTURE IN THE BIBLE. SO THERE."
  • 00:13:39.140 --> 00:13:43.280
  • WELL YOU CAN'T FIND THE WORD BIBLE IN THE BIBLE.
  • 00:13:44.010 --> 00:13:47.130
  • HOW ABOUT THAT?
  • 00:13:47.160 --> 00:13:49.030
  • THE WORD BIBLE IS NOT IN THE BIBLE.
  • 00:13:49.060 --> 00:13:51.150
  • NOR CAN YOU FIND THE WORD TRINITY IN THE BIBLE.
  • 00:13:51.180 --> 00:13:55.040
  • ACTUALLY, YOU CAN FIND THE WORD RAPTURE IN THE BIBLE
  • 00:13:55.070 --> 00:13:58.050
  • IF YOU HAVE A LATIN TRANSLATION BECAUSE
  • 00:13:58.080 --> 00:14:00.140
  • RAPTUROUS IS A SIMPLE LATIN TRANSLATION
  • 00:14:00.170 --> 00:14:04.110
  • OF THE WORD HARPAZO - A GREEK WORD.
  • 00:14:04.140 --> 00:14:07.050
  • THAT WORD YOU'LL FIND MANY TIMES IN THE BIBLE.
  • 00:14:07.080 --> 00:14:11.020
  • THE HARPAZO , SOMETIMES CALLED THE RAPTURE,
  • 00:14:11.050 --> 00:14:15.150
  • IS THAT EVENT WHERE WE'RE CAUGHT UP TO MEET
  • 00:14:15.180 --> 00:14:17.230
  • THE LORD IN THE AIR.
  • 00:14:17.260 --> 00:14:18.230
  • WHERE IS IT IN THE BIBLE? OH RIGHT.
  • 00:14:18.260 --> 00:14:19.280
  • 1 THESSALONIANS 4:16. LET'S READ IT TOGETHER.
  • 00:14:20.010 --> 00:14:23.000
  • "THE LORD HIMSELF WILL DESCEND FROM HEAVEN WITH
  • 00:14:23.030 --> 00:14:25.240
  • A SHOUT, WITH A VOICE OF THE ARCHANGEL
  • 00:14:25.270 --> 00:14:28.230
  • AND WITH THE TRUMPET OF GOD AND THE DEAD IN CHRIST
  • 00:14:28.260 --> 00:14:31.040
  • WILL RISE FIRST AND WE WHICH ARE ALIVE
  • 00:14:31.070 --> 00:14:33.100
  • AND REMAINING SHALL BE CAUGHT UP.
  • 00:14:33.130 --> 00:14:35.150
  • THAT PHRASE CAUGHT UP IS FROM THE GREEK WORD
  • 00:14:35.180 --> 00:14:37.180
  • HARPAZO OR RAPTURE, WILL BE CAUGHT UP, RAPTURED,
  • 00:14:37.210 --> 00:14:42.020
  • TOGETHER WITH THEM IN THE CLOUDS TO MEET THE LORD IN
  • 00:14:42.050 --> 00:14:45.100
  • THE AIR AND THUS WE SHALL ALWAYS BE WITH THE LORD.
  • 00:14:45.130 --> 00:14:48.000
  • THEREFORE COMFORT ONE ANOTHER WITH THESE WORDS."
  • 00:14:48.030 --> 00:14:53.190
  • SO THIS WORD HARPAZO IS USED 13 TIMES
  • 00:14:53.220 --> 00:14:56.270
  • IN THE NEW TESTAMENT.
  • 00:14:57.000 --> 00:14:58.060
  • IT MEANS TO TAKE FORCIBLY, TO SNATCH, OR TO CATCH UP.
  • 00:14:58.090 --> 00:15:03.100
  • SO NUMBER TWO: WHY IS THERE A RAPTURE?
  • 00:15:03.130 --> 00:15:07.160
  • UNDERSTAND THE CONTEXT.
  • 00:15:07.190 --> 00:15:08.230
  • PAUL IS WRITING TO THE BELIEVERS OF THESSALONICA.
  • 00:15:08.260 --> 00:15:12.240
  • THEY'RE UNDER INTENSE PERSECUTION.
  • 00:15:12.270 --> 00:15:15.250
  • RELATIVES AND FRIENDS HAVE DIED AND THEY'RE
  • 00:15:15.280 --> 00:15:18.040
  • WONDERING, ARE WE EVER GOING TO SEE
  • 00:15:18.070 --> 00:15:19.270
  • OUR LOVED ONES AGAIN. SO PAUL IS TRYING
  • 00:15:20.000 --> 00:15:23.130
  • TO CALM THEM DOWN AND GIVE THEM PERSPECTIVE.
  • 00:15:23.160 --> 00:15:27.020
  • THEY'RE WONDERING, "WELL MAYBE THEY WOULD MISS
  • 00:15:27.050 --> 00:15:29.000
  • THE RAPTURE AND THEY WOULD NEVER SEE
  • 00:15:29.030 --> 00:15:30.230
  • THEIR LOVED ONES EVER AGAIN."
  • 00:15:30.260 --> 00:15:34.020
  • SO PAUL NOW WRITES GOING BACK A VERSE OR TWO.
  • 00:15:34.050 --> 00:15:36.200
  • 1 THESSALONIANS 4:13 HE SAYS, "WE DON'T WANT YOU
  • 00:15:36.230 --> 00:15:39.190
  • TO BE UNINFORMED, BROTHERS, ABOUT THOSE WHO HAVE DIED
  • 00:15:39.220 --> 00:15:43.090
  • SO YOU WILL NOT GRIEVE AS THOSE WHO HAVE NO HOPE."
  • 00:15:43.120 --> 00:15:47.200
  • SO THIS IS VERY INTERESTING, BROTHERS,
  • 00:15:47.230 --> 00:15:50.070
  • SISTERS, PEOPLE, LISTEN.
  • 00:15:50.100 --> 00:15:51.230
  • WE DON'T WANT YOU TO BE UNINFORMED.
  • 00:15:51.260 --> 00:15:54.040
  • SO WHAT IS PAUL DOING?
  • 00:15:54.070 --> 00:15:55.280
  • HE IS EXPLAINING WHY BIBLE PROPHECY MATTERS.
  • 00:15:56.010 --> 00:16:00.200
  • HAVE YOU EVER SEEN THE COMIC STRIP "PEANUTS"?
  • 00:16:00.230 --> 00:16:03.210
  • YOU KNOW PEANUTS?
  • 00:16:03.240 --> 00:16:05.000
  • CHARLIE BROWN, LINUS, LUCY, ALL THOSE GUYS. SNOOPY. RIGHT.
  • 00:16:05.030 --> 00:16:07.280
  • SO THERE'S THIS PEANUT STRIP FRAME ONE: LUCY AND
  • 00:16:08.010 --> 00:16:12.220
  • LINUS, HER BROTHER, ARE LOOKING OUT THE WINDOW.
  • 00:16:12.250 --> 00:16:15.280
  • IT'S JUST RAINING LIKE CRAZY.
  • 00:16:16.010 --> 00:16:17.120
  • RAINING. RAINING.
  • 00:16:17.150 --> 00:16:18.140
  • FRAME TWO: LUCY SAYS, "IT'S RAINING SO HARD.
  • 00:16:18.170 --> 00:16:20.180
  • I THINK THE WHOLE EARTH IS GOING TO BE FLOODED."
  • 00:16:20.210 --> 00:16:24.170
  • FRAME THREE: LINUS SAYS, "THAT'S NOT GOING TO
  • 00:16:24.200 --> 00:16:26.110
  • HAPPEN, LUCY, BECAUSE GOD PROMISED IN SCRIPTURE HE
  • 00:16:26.140 --> 00:16:29.100
  • WOULD NEVER FLOOD THE EARTH AGAIN AND HE'S
  • 00:16:29.130 --> 00:16:31.080
  • GIVEN US A RAINBOW AS A REMINDER."
  • 00:16:31.110 --> 00:16:33.280
  • THEN THE NEXT FRAME LUCY SAYS,
  • 00:16:34.010 --> 00:16:35.130
  • "WOW. THAT TAKES A LOAD OFF MY MIND."
  • 00:16:35.160 --> 00:16:37.240
  • AND THEN THE FINAL FRAME HAS LINUS SAYING,
  • 00:16:37.270 --> 00:16:40.070
  • "A GOOD THEOLOGY HAS A WAY OF DOING THAT."
  • 00:16:40.100 --> 00:16:43.230
  • SO SOMETIMES YOU KNOW, WE'RE FREAKED OUT BY STUFF.
  • 00:16:43.260 --> 00:16:46.110
  • WE'RE AFRAID OF DEATH UNDERSTANDABLY.
  • 00:16:46.140 --> 00:16:49.030
  • WE'RE AFRAID OF WHAT IF THIS HAPPENS, WHAT IF THAT
  • 00:16:49.060 --> 00:16:51.050
  • HAPPENS, THAT'S WHERE THEOLOGY COMES IN.
  • 00:16:51.080 --> 00:16:53.160
  • DON'T BE AFRAID OF THE WORD THEOLOGY.
  • 00:16:53.190 --> 00:16:55.120
  • IT JUST MEANS THE STUDY OF GOD.
  • 00:16:55.150 --> 00:16:57.170
  • EVERY TIME WE OPEN THE BIBLE, WE'RE ENTERING INTO THEOLOGY.
  • 00:16:57.200 --> 00:17:01.250
  • WE'RE STUDYING GOD AND KNOWING THE BIBLE HELPS
  • 00:17:01.280 --> 00:17:05.220
  • YOU DEAL WITH SO MANY THINGS BECAUSE WHEN THINGS
  • 00:17:05.250 --> 00:17:08.170
  • FRIGHTEN YOU, YOU GO BACK TO THE BIBLE.
  • 00:17:08.200 --> 00:17:10.140
  • HERE'S WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS.
  • 00:17:10.170 --> 00:17:11.280
  • AND IT CAN CORRECT YOU RIGHT.
  • 00:17:12.010 --> 00:17:14.030
  • SO PAUL IS SAYING TO THOSE GUYS LISTEN.
  • 00:17:14.060 --> 00:17:17.080
  • I DON'T WANT YOU TO BE UNINFORMED.
  • 00:17:17.110 --> 00:17:19.290
  • THAT'S WHY WE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT BIBLE PROPHECY.
  • 00:17:20.020 --> 00:17:23.080
  • SOME WILL SAY, NO ONE CAN FIGURE IT OUT.
  • 00:17:23.110 --> 00:17:25.040
  • IT'S NOT WORTH STUDYING. REALLY?
  • 00:17:25.070 --> 00:17:27.190
  • JESUS SAID "WHEN YOU SEE THE ABOMINATION OF
  • 00:17:27.220 --> 00:17:30.000
  • DESOLATION LET THE READER BEWARE AND
  • 00:17:30.030 --> 00:17:33.110
  • LET THE READER UNDERSTAND."
  • 00:17:33.140 --> 00:17:35.140
  • SO HERE HE'S SAYING SOMETHING IS COMING AND
  • 00:17:35.170 --> 00:17:38.080
  • YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT.
  • 00:17:38.110 --> 00:17:40.260
  • THAT'S WHY WE NEED TO BREAK IT DOWN AND EXPLAIN IT.
  • 00:17:40.290 --> 00:17:43.240
  • THE VERY WORD REVELATION, YOU KNOW
  • 00:17:43.270 --> 00:17:46.090
  • THE LAST BOOK OF THE BIBLE.
  • 00:17:46.120 --> 00:17:47.190
  • SOMETIMES PEOPLE CALL IT REVELATIONS.
  • 00:17:47.220 --> 00:17:50.040
  • THAT KIND OF DRIVES ME CRAZY.
  • 00:17:50.070 --> 00:17:51.120
  • IT'S REVELATION. SINGULAR NOT PLURAL.
  • 00:17:51.150 --> 00:17:54.100
  • REVELATION: IT MEANS UNVEILING.
  • 00:17:54.130 --> 00:17:57.020
  • THE UNVEILING.
  • 00:17:57.050 --> 00:17:58.150
  • SO IT'S NOT GOD'S DESIRE TO CONCEAL BUT TO REVEAL
  • 00:17:58.180 --> 00:18:02.140
  • TO SHOW US THESE THINGS.
  • 00:18:02.170 --> 00:18:04.090
  • BY THE WAY, THERE IS A PROMISE IN REVELATION TO
  • 00:18:04.120 --> 00:18:07.000
  • EVERYONE WHO READS, HEARS, AND KEEPS THE WORD OF THIS
  • 00:18:07.030 --> 00:18:10.230
  • BOOK SO BASICALLY GOD IS SAYING IF YOU READ THIS IF
  • 00:18:10.260 --> 00:18:13.250
  • YOU UNDERSTAND IT AND IF YOU KEEP IT YOU'LL BE BLESSED.
  • 00:18:13.280 --> 00:18:17.090
  • I THINK THAT APPLIES TO BIBLE PROPHECY IN GENERAL.
  • 00:18:17.120 --> 00:18:20.100
  • THAT'S WHY WE SHOULD STUDY BIBLE PROPHECY
  • 00:18:20.130 --> 00:18:23.240
  • AND UNDERSTAND WHAT IT MEANS FOR US TODAY.
  • 00:18:23.270 --> 00:18:27.010
  • SO PAUL IS JUST SAYING LOOK, I WANT YOU TO HAVE
  • 00:18:27.040 --> 00:18:29.240
  • PERSPECTIVE HERE BECAUSE KNOWING THE RAPTURE
  • 00:18:29.270 --> 00:18:33.280
  • COULD COME BRINGS HOPE.
  • 00:18:34.010 --> 00:18:35.210
  • 1 THESSALONIANS 4:18 SAYS, THEREFORE COMFORT ONE
  • 00:18:35.240 --> 00:18:40.070
  • ANOTHER WITH THESE WORDS.
  • 00:18:40.100 --> 00:18:42.230
  • SO HERE IS WHAT PAUL IS SAYING, YOU WILL SEE
  • 00:18:42.260 --> 00:18:45.010
  • YOUR LOVED ONES AGAIN.
  • 00:18:45.040 --> 00:18:47.080
  • SO YOU WILL GRIEVE BUT YOU DON'T HAVE TO DO
  • 00:18:47.110 --> 00:18:49.230
  • SO HOPELESSLY, BUT RATHER, HOPEFULLY.
  • 00:18:49.260 --> 00:18:53.200
  • YOU KNOW, WHEN A LOVED ONE DIES WE MISS THEM.
  • 00:18:53.230 --> 00:18:57.050
  • IT BREAKS OUR HEART.
  • 00:18:57.080 --> 00:18:58.050
  • I KNOW MANY OF YOU HAVE LOST LOVED ONES.
  • 00:18:58.080 --> 00:19:01.110
  • I'VE LOST MANY LOVED ONES.
  • 00:19:01.140 --> 00:19:03.000
  • MY FATHER, MY MOTHER, MY SON.
  • 00:19:03.030 --> 00:19:06.080
  • SO THIS IS DEVASTATING AND YOU WONDER WILL
  • 00:19:06.110 --> 00:19:10.000
  • I EVER SEE THEM AGAIN.
  • 00:19:10.030 --> 00:19:11.070
  • IF THEY HAVE FAITH IN CHRIST, THE ANSWER
  • 00:19:11.100 --> 00:19:13.000
  • IS A RESOUNDING YES. YOU WILL.
  • 00:19:13.030 --> 00:19:16.060
  • THAT'S A GREAT COMFORT TO REMIND YOURSELF OF WHAT
  • 00:19:16.090 --> 00:19:19.130
  • THE BIBLE SAYS BECAUSE WHEN YOU HAVE SOMEONE
  • 00:19:19.160 --> 00:19:22.270
  • TAKEN FROM YOU UNEXPECTEDLY LIKE OUR
  • 00:19:23.000 --> 00:19:24.220
  • SON CHRISTOPHER WAS IN AN AUTOMOBILE ACCIDENT
  • 00:19:24.250 --> 00:19:27.110
  • ALMOST 11 YEARS AGO WE DIDN'T KNOW IT
  • 00:19:27.140 --> 00:19:33.080
  • WAS GOING TO HAPPEN.
  • 00:19:33.110 --> 00:19:34.100
  • IT WAS LIKE I HAD MANY YEARS I EXPECTED TO HAVE
  • 00:19:34.130 --> 00:19:38.000
  • WITH HIM IN THE FUTURE.
  • 00:19:38.030 --> 00:19:39.040
  • I'M SUPPOSED TO GO FIRST.
  • 00:19:39.070 --> 00:19:40.190
  • DAD GOES FIRST THEN YOU MUCH MUCH LATER.
  • 00:19:40.220 --> 00:19:43.130
  • NOT YOU BEFORE ME.
  • 00:19:43.160 --> 00:19:44.290
  • SO YOU FIND YOURSELF DREAMING ABOUT A LOVED ONE.
  • 00:19:45.020 --> 00:19:48.050
  • SOMETIMES YOU'RE HAVING CONVERSATIONS
  • 00:19:48.080 --> 00:19:49.270
  • WITH YOUR LOVED ONE.
  • 00:19:50.000 --> 00:19:51.140
  • YOU THAT HAVE LOST PEOPLE CLOSE
  • 00:19:51.170 --> 00:19:54.050
  • TO YOU KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT.
  • 00:19:54.080 --> 00:19:55.270
  • BUT HERE IS THE PROMISE OF THE RAPTURE.
  • 00:19:56.000 --> 00:19:58.150
  • ONE DAY YOU COULD BE GOING ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS
  • 00:19:58.180 --> 00:20:00.260
  • THINKING ABOUT YOUR DEPARTED LOVED ONE.
  • 00:20:00.290 --> 00:20:02.270
  • THEN SUDDENLY, SO QUICKLY, YOU COULDN'T EVEN
  • 00:20:03.000 --> 00:20:06.290
  • MEASURE IT IN TIME, YOU'D BE WITH THEM.
  • 00:20:07.020 --> 00:20:10.130
  • MOTHERS AND FATHERS WILL BE WITH SONS AND DAUGHTERS.
  • 00:20:10.160 --> 00:20:14.120
  • SONS AND DAUGHTERS REUNITED
  • 00:20:14.150 --> 00:20:16.070
  • WITH MOTHERS AND FATHERS.
  • 00:20:16.100 --> 00:20:18.170
  • BROTHERS REUNITED WITH BROTHERS.
  • 00:20:18.200 --> 00:20:20.190
  • SISTERS REUNITED WITH SISTERS.
  • 00:20:20.220 --> 00:20:22.220
  • JONATHAN OUR SON IS SITTING HERE AND YOU KNOW
  • 00:20:22.250 --> 00:20:25.280
  • HE LOVED HIS BROTHER AND LOOKED UP TO HIS BROTHER.
  • 00:20:26.010 --> 00:20:28.060
  • HE'LL BE REUNITED WITH HIM.
  • 00:20:28.090 --> 00:20:29.190
  • THIS IS OUR GREAT HOPE AS CHRISTIANS.
  • 00:20:29.220 --> 00:20:32.060
  • FRIENDS WILL BE REUNITED WITH FRIENDS.
  • 00:20:32.090 --> 00:20:34.170
  • YOUR SORROW WILL IMMEDIATELY VANISH
  • 00:20:34.200 --> 00:20:37.030
  • AND IT WILL BE REPLACED BY ECSTATIC JOY.
  • 00:20:37.060 --> 00:20:40.090
  • NOT ONLY WILL YOU BE REUNITED WITH YOUR LOVED
  • 00:20:40.120 --> 00:20:42.050
  • ONE, YOU'LL BE IN THE PRESENCE OF JESUS HIMSELF.
  • 00:20:42.080 --> 00:20:46.030
  • THAT'S GOOD NEWS.
  • 00:20:46.060 --> 00:20:49.050
  • [applause]
  • 00:20:49.080 --> 00:20:52.090
  • I BELIEVE THE RAPTURE COULD HAPPEN
  • 00:20:52.120 --> 00:20:53.220
  • IN OUR LIFETIME. I WOULDN'T SET A DATE.
  • 00:20:53.250 --> 00:20:57.060
  • NO ONE SHOULD, BUT IT COULD.
  • 00:20:57.090 --> 00:21:00.030
  • SO IT'S GOOD TO THINK ABOUT THESE THINGS.
  • 00:21:00.060 --> 00:21:02.150
  • SOMETIMES PEOPLE WILL SAY, OH YEAH, YOU HAVE YOUR
  • 00:21:02.180 --> 00:21:03.240
  • HEAD IN THE CLOUDS.
  • 00:21:03.270 --> 00:21:04.260
  • I THINK WE NEED OUR HEAD IN THE CLOUDS A LITTLE
  • 00:21:04.290 --> 00:21:06.060
  • BIT MORE SOMETIMES.
  • 00:21:06.090 --> 00:21:07.120
  • WE HAVE OUR HEADS WAY TOO MUCH IN OUR CELL PHONES
  • 00:21:07.150 --> 00:21:10.120
  • AND NOT ENOUGH IN THE CLOUDS.
  • 00:21:10.150 --> 00:21:13.000
  • NOBODY EVEN LOOKS UP ANYMORE.
  • 00:21:13.030 --> 00:21:14.030
  • EVERYONE IS LOOKING DOWN.
  • 00:21:14.060 --> 00:21:14.280
  • DO YOU EVER NOTICE THAT?
  • 00:21:15.010 --> 00:21:15.270
  • EVERYONE IS LOOKING DOWN.
  • 00:21:16.000 --> 00:21:16.200
  • LOOKING DOWN. YOU KNOW.
  • 00:21:16.230 --> 00:21:18.040
  • AND WE'RE WALKING ACROSS CROSSWALKS WITH
  • 00:21:18.070 --> 00:21:20.150
  • FOUR LANES OF TRAFFIC COMING BOTH WAYS
  • 00:21:20.180 --> 00:21:22.180
  • JUST STARING AT THAT THING.
  • 00:21:22.210 --> 00:21:24.170
  • I MEAN I DON'T TRUST PEOPLE.
  • 00:21:24.200 --> 00:21:27.000
  • PEOPLE RUN RED LIGHTS, RIGHT.
  • 00:21:27.030 --> 00:21:28.200
  • BUT WE DON'T HAVE CONVERSATIONS
  • 00:21:28.230 --> 00:21:30.180
  • WITH EACH OTHER. NO.
  • 00:21:30.210 --> 00:21:31.160
  • WE NEED TO LOOK UP.
  • 00:21:31.190 --> 00:21:32.210
  • THE BIBLE SAYS WHEN YOU SEE THESE THINGS BEGIN TO
  • 00:21:32.240 --> 00:21:35.030
  • HAPPEN LOOK UP FOR YOUR REDEMPTION IS DRAWING NEAR.
  • 00:21:35.060 --> 00:21:37.280
  • IT'S GOOD TO THINK ABOUT HEAVEN.
  • 00:21:38.010 --> 00:21:40.030
  • IT'S GOOD TO TRY TO IMAGINE HEAVEN.
  • 00:21:40.060 --> 00:21:42.220
  • I KNOW IT'S NOT EASY BECAUSE WE'VE NEVER BEEN
  • 00:21:42.250 --> 00:21:44.240
  • THERE BEFORE BUT IT'S A GOOD THING TO PONDER.
  • 00:21:44.270 --> 00:21:48.080
  • THE BIBLE EVEN SAYS SET YOUR MIND ON THINGS ABOVE.
  • 00:21:48.110 --> 00:21:52.100
  • NOT ON THINGS OF THE EARTH. C. S. LEWIS SAID
  • 00:21:52.130 --> 00:21:55.170
  • "A CONTINUAL LOOKING FORWARD TO THE ETERNAL
  • 00:21:55.200 --> 00:21:58.260
  • WORLD IS NOT A FORM OF ESCAPISM OR WISHFUL THINKING,
  • 00:21:58.290 --> 00:22:02.190
  • BUT ONE OF THE THINGS A CHRISTIAN IS MEANT TO DO."
  • 00:22:02.220 --> 00:22:06.280
  • NUMBER THREE: WHEN IS THE RAPTURE?
  • 00:22:07.010 --> 00:22:09.280
  • ANSWER: NO ONE KNOWS.
  • 00:22:10.010 --> 00:22:12.250
  • IF THEY SAY THEY KNOW YOU CAN BE
  • 00:22:12.280 --> 00:22:15.070
  • SURE THEY'RE WRONG. WHY?
  • 00:22:15.100 --> 00:22:17.090
  • BECAUSE JESUS SAID NO ONE KNOWS THE DAY OR THE HOUR.
  • 00:22:17.120 --> 00:22:21.000
  • NOT EVEN THE ANGELS NOR THE SON INTERESTINGLY.
  • 00:22:21.030 --> 00:22:25.240
  • ONLY THE FATHER.
  • 00:22:25.270 --> 00:22:26.270
  • NO ONE KNOWS THE DAY OR THE HOUR.
  • 00:22:27.000 --> 00:22:28.100
  • NOW IF YOU WERE TAKE THAT PHRASE, "NO ONE KNOWS THE
  • 00:22:28.130 --> 00:22:30.070
  • DAY OR THE HOUR" AND GO TO THE ORIGINAL GREEK
  • 00:22:30.100 --> 00:22:32.030
  • AND TRANSLATE IT, IT WOULD TRANSLATE OUT TO SAY,
  • 00:22:32.060 --> 00:22:34.240
  • "NO ONE KNOWS THE DAY OR THE HOUR."
  • 00:22:34.270 --> 00:22:39.030
  • AND WHAT THAT MEANS IS NO ONE KNOWS THE DAY OR THE HOUR.
  • 00:22:39.060 --> 00:22:42.130
  • BUT EVERY NOW AND THEN SOME PERSON COMES
  • 00:22:42.160 --> 00:22:44.160
  • ALONG AND THEY'VE CRACKED THE CODE,
  • 00:22:44.190 --> 00:22:46.270
  • "I KNOW WHEN JESUS IS COMING.
  • 00:22:47.000 --> 00:22:49.160
  • I'VE STUDIED THE BLOOD MOONS AND THE FEASTS AND
  • 00:22:49.190 --> 00:22:54.150
  • I THINK I MAYBE HAVE EVEN IDENTIFIED THE ANTI-CHRIST
  • 00:22:54.180 --> 00:22:57.170
  • AND IT'S THIS DAY" AND PEOPLE WILL BELIEVE IT.
  • 00:22:57.200 --> 00:23:01.120
  • THERE WAS A BOOK YEARS AGO.
  • 00:23:01.150 --> 00:23:03.000
  • 88 REASONS WHY JESUS WILL COME BACK IN 1988.
  • 00:23:03.030 --> 00:23:06.210
  • SOLD OVER A MILLION COPIES IN 1988.
  • 00:23:06.240 --> 00:23:10.240
  • DIDN'T SELL SO WELL AFTER THAT AND I MADE THE BOLD
  • 00:23:10.270 --> 00:23:13.120
  • STATEMENT "THIS BOOK IS NOT TRUE" BECAUSE NO ONE
  • 00:23:13.150 --> 00:23:18.070
  • KNOWS THE DAY OR THE HOUR.
  • 00:23:18.100 --> 00:23:20.070
  • SO WHEN IS THE RAPTURE?
  • 00:23:20.100 --> 00:23:21.120
  • TONIGHT? TOMORROW? IN A WEEK? IN A MONTH?
  • 00:23:21.150 --> 00:23:26.080
  • IN A YEAR? IN A DECADE? IN THREE DECADES?
  • 00:23:26.110 --> 00:23:29.120
  • I DON'T KNOW, BUT IT COULD HAPPEN TONIGHT.
  • 00:23:29.150 --> 00:23:32.210
  • IN MY UNDERSTANDING OF SCRIPTURE, I DON'T SEE ANY
  • 00:23:32.240 --> 00:23:36.040
  • PROPHETIC EVENT THAT WOULD HAVE TO HAPPEN BEFORE
  • 00:23:36.070 --> 00:23:38.240
  • THE RAPTURE COULD COME.
  • 00:23:38.270 --> 00:23:40.250
  • THERE'S PROPHETIC EVENTS THAT WOULD HAVE TO HAPPEN
  • 00:23:40.280 --> 00:23:42.250
  • BEFORE ANTI-CHRIST IS REVEALED.
  • 00:23:42.280 --> 00:23:44.290
  • THERE ARE PROPHETIC EVENTS THAT NEED TO HAPPEN BEFORE
  • 00:23:45.020 --> 00:23:46.280
  • THE TRIBULATION PERIOD STARTS.
  • 00:23:47.010 --> 00:23:49.040
  • THERE ARE EVENTS THAT NEED TO HAPPEN BEFORE
  • 00:23:49.070 --> 00:23:52.160
  • THE SECOND COMING, BUT NO EVENT THAT NEEDS TO
  • 00:23:52.190 --> 00:23:55.120
  • HAPPEN BEFORE THE RAPTURE.
  • 00:23:55.150 --> 00:23:57.170
  • HERE IS THE BIG PICTURE.
  • 00:23:57.200 --> 00:23:58.210
  • HERE IS THE CHRONOLOGY OF EVENTS AT LEAST AS
  • 00:23:58.240 --> 00:24:00.250
  • I UNDERSTAND THEM AND I'M RIGHT. I HOPE.
  • 00:24:00.280 --> 00:24:06.250
  • BUT I BELIEVE THE NEXT EVENT ON THE PROPHETIC
  • 00:24:06.280 --> 00:24:09.200
  • CALENDAR IS THE RAPTURE WHERE WE'RE CAUGHT UP TO
  • 00:24:09.230 --> 00:24:11.130
  • MEET THE LORD IN THE AIR.
  • 00:24:11.160 --> 00:24:12.290
  • THEN AFTER THAT I THINK ANTI-CHRIST EMERGES RATHER
  • 00:24:13.020 --> 00:24:17.180
  • QUICKLY ON THE HEELS OF THAT AND INAUGURATES THE
  • 00:24:17.210 --> 00:24:20.010
  • GREAT TRIBULATION PERIOD THAT LASTS FOR SEVEN YEARS.
  • 00:24:20.040 --> 00:24:23.090
  • INITIALLY HE COMES OFF AS A GOOD GUY.
  • 00:24:23.120 --> 00:24:25.070
  • HE COMES OFF AS A MAN OF PEACE.
  • 00:24:25.100 --> 00:24:27.180
  • A MAN WITH SOLUTIONS, BUT IN TIME HE SHOWS
  • 00:24:27.210 --> 00:24:30.060
  • HIS TRUE COLORS AND THEN HE PERFORMS WHAT IS
  • 00:24:30.090 --> 00:24:33.160
  • CALLED THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION.
  • 00:24:33.190 --> 00:24:35.270
  • I MENTIONED THAT A MOMENT AGO.
  • 00:24:36.000 --> 00:24:37.090
  • THAT IS AFTER HE HAS REBUILT THE JEWISH TEMPLE
  • 00:24:37.120 --> 00:24:39.250
  • FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 00:24:39.280 --> 00:24:41.100
  • HE ERECTS AN IMAGE OF HIMSELF IN THE TEMPLE AND
  • 00:24:41.130 --> 00:24:44.060
  • COMMANDS THAT EVERYONE SHOULD WORSHIP IT.
  • 00:24:44.090 --> 00:24:47.130
  • THAT'S THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION AND
  • 00:24:47.160 --> 00:24:50.050
  • THAT'S EFFECTIVELY THE HALFWAY POINT OF
  • 00:24:50.080 --> 00:24:52.130
  • THE TRIBULATION PERIOD.
  • 00:24:52.160 --> 00:24:53.250
  • THEN ALL THOSE CATACLYSMIC EVENTS YOU READ ABOUT.
  • 00:24:53.280 --> 00:24:56.250
  • THE HORRIBLE WARS AND THE FAMINE AND ALL THE REST
  • 00:24:56.280 --> 00:25:00.090
  • HAPPENS IN THE SECOND HALF OF THE TRIBULATION.
  • 00:25:00.120 --> 00:25:03.140
  • IT ALL CULMINATES IN THE BATTLES OF ARMAGEDDON.
  • 00:25:03.170 --> 00:25:06.190
  • FOUGHT IN THE VALLEY OF MEGIDDO.
  • 00:25:06.220 --> 00:25:09.070
  • THE REASON IT'S CALLED ARMAGEDDON IT'S FROM
  • 00:25:09.100 --> 00:25:11.100
  • THE ROOT WORD HAR-MAGEDON OR MEGIDDO BECAUSE OF
  • 00:25:11.130 --> 00:25:14.170
  • THE LOCATION OF THE BATTLE.
  • 00:25:14.200 --> 00:25:16.190
  • THE VALLEY OF MEGIDDO THERE IN ISRAEL AND AS
  • 00:25:16.220 --> 00:25:19.230
  • THE ANTI-CHRIST IS WAGING WAR AGAINST THE KINGS OF
  • 00:25:19.260 --> 00:25:24.080
  • THE EAST THE SCRIPTURE TELLS US THAT CHRIST WILL RETURN
  • 00:25:24.110 --> 00:25:29.170
  • IN THE SECOND COMING. ON THE HEELS OF THE SECOND
  • 00:25:29.200 --> 00:25:33.130
  • COMING HE ESTABLISHES THE MILLENNIAL REIGN.
  • 00:25:33.160 --> 00:25:37.210
  • THE MILLENNIUM IS JUST A WORD THAT MEANS ONE THOUSAND.
  • 00:25:37.240 --> 00:25:40.250
  • IT'S A THOUSAND YEAR REIGN OF CHRIST AND AT THE END
  • 00:25:40.280 --> 00:25:44.180
  • OF THE MILLENNIUM OR THE THOUSAND YEAR REIGN OF
  • 00:25:44.210 --> 00:25:47.070
  • CHRIST THEN NEW JERUSALEM IS A BRIDE ADORNED FOR HER
  • 00:25:47.100 --> 00:25:50.220
  • HUSBAND COMES DOWN FROM HEAVEN AND HEAVEN
  • 00:25:50.250 --> 00:25:53.190
  • AND EARTH BECOME ONE.
  • 00:25:53.220 --> 00:25:55.090
  • SO IF SOMEONE SAYS, "I JUST WANT TO LEAVE
  • 00:25:55.120 --> 00:25:57.280
  • THIS WORLD AND GO BE IN HEAVEN FOREVER.
  • 00:25:58.010 --> 00:26:00.100
  • ACTUALLY, YOU'RE NOT GOING TO BE IN HEAVEN FOREVER.
  • 00:26:00.130 --> 00:26:02.060
  • YOU WILL BE HEAVEN BUT HEAVEN IS GOING
  • 00:26:02.090 --> 00:26:04.260
  • TO COME TO EARTH.
  • 00:26:04.290 --> 00:26:05.210
  • THERE'S GOING TO BE A NEW EARTH.
  • 00:26:05.240 --> 00:26:07.040
  • SO THAT'S THE CHRONOLOGY AS I SEE IT.
  • 00:26:07.070 --> 00:26:10.100
  • SO WHEN IS THE RAPTURE? NOBODY KNOWS.
  • 00:26:10.130 --> 00:26:13.150
  • WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO BELIEVE THAT JESUS
  • 00:26:13.180 --> 00:26:15.160
  • COULD RETURN AT ANY MOMENT?
  • 00:26:15.190 --> 00:26:17.070
  • BECAUSE IT MOTIVATES US TO LIVE GODLY LIVES.
  • 00:26:17.100 --> 00:26:20.160
  • 1 JOHN 3:3 SAYS HE THAT HAS THIS HOPE PURIFIES
  • 00:26:20.190 --> 00:26:25.040
  • HIMSELF EVEN AS HE IS PURE.
  • 00:26:25.070 --> 00:26:28.000
  • SO I THINK WHEN WE'RE WALKING WITH GOD AND YOU
  • 00:26:28.030 --> 00:26:30.160
  • HEAR A MESSAGE LIKE THIS THAT JESUS IS COMING
  • 00:26:30.190 --> 00:26:32.280
  • YOU SAY, "YES. I WANT IT."
  • 00:26:33.010 --> 00:26:36.040
  • LIKE WE SING "EVEN SO COME, LORD JESUS, COME."
  • 00:26:36.070 --> 00:26:39.250
  • I THINK IF YOU'RE NOT RIGHT WITH GOD YOU'RE
  • 00:26:39.280 --> 00:26:42.040
  • THINKING "EH. REALLY?"
  • 00:26:42.070 --> 00:26:46.060
  • SEE, HE THAT HAS THIS HOPE THE HOPE OF THE
  • 00:26:46.090 --> 00:26:48.120
  • LORD'S RETURN, PURIFIES HIMSELF.
  • 00:26:48.150 --> 00:26:50.290
  • I WANT TO BE ON MY BEST BEHAVIOR BECAUSE
  • 00:26:51.020 --> 00:26:52.250
  • CHRIST IS COMING.
  • 00:26:52.280 --> 00:26:55.010
  • ROMANS 13:11 SAYS UNDERSTAND THE PRESENT TIME.
  • 00:26:55.040 --> 00:26:58.070
  • THE HOUR HAS COME FOR US TO WAKE UP FROM OUR SLEEP
  • 00:26:58.100 --> 00:27:01.200
  • BECAUSE OUR SALVATION IS NEAR NOW THAN WHEN
  • 00:27:01.230 --> 00:27:04.250
  • WE FIRST BELIEVED.
  • 00:27:04.280 --> 00:27:06.010
  • THE NIGHT IS NEARLY OVER.
  • 00:27:06.040 --> 00:27:07.130
  • THE DAY IS ALMOST HERE.
  • 00:27:07.160 --> 00:27:10.010
  • ARE YOU READY FOR THE RETURN OF JESUS CHRIST?
  • 00:27:10.040 --> 00:27:13.260
  • [Phil Wickham: This is the Day] THIS IS THE DAY WHEN
  • 00:27:13.290 --> 00:27:14.180
  • THE LOST ARE FOUND.
  • 00:27:14.210 --> 00:27:17.000
  • O CAN YOU HEAR ALL THE ANGELS ARE SINGING
  • 00:27:17.030 --> 00:27:20.230
  • THIS IS THE DAY THE DAY WHEN LIFE BEGINS.
  • 00:27:20.260 --> 00:27:28.080
  • 00:27:28.110 --> 00:27:29.110
