  • HI, I'M ROBERT JEFFRESS AND WELCOME AGAIN

  • TO PATHWAY TO VICTORY.
  • 00:00:16.280 --> 00:00:19.110
  • THIS IS A GREAT DAY TO JOIN US BECAUSE TODAY,
  • 00:00:19.120 --> 00:00:22.060
  • WE'RE WRAPPING UP OUR STUDY IN THE BOOK OF DANIEL.
  • 00:00:22.070 --> 00:00:25.200
  • OVER THE LAST FEW WEEKS, WE'VE BEEN WALKING THROUGH
  • 00:00:25.210 --> 00:00:28.020
  • THIS FASCINATING BOOK OF SCRIPTURE DISCOVERING GOD'S PLAN
  • 00:00:28.030 --> 00:00:32.030

  • TODAY, WE'VE COME TO THE END OF DANIEL'S PROPHETIC VISION
  • 00:00:35.020 --> 00:00:38.220
  • WHERE WE GET A GLIMPSE OF THE FINAL PAGES OF HISTORY.
  • 00:00:38.230 --> 00:00:42.150
  • I'M TALKING ABOUT THE SEVEN-YEAR TRIBULATION,
  • 00:00:42.160 --> 00:00:46.040
  • THE FINAL WORLD BATTLE AND THE GLORIOUS RETURN
  • 00:00:46.050 --> 00:00:49.140
  • OF JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:00:49.150 --> 00:00:51.140

  • MUSIC
  • 00:00:58.050 --> 00:01:05.020
  • IN A WORLD THAT OFTEN SEEMS DARK AND HOPELESS
  • 00:01:05.150 --> 00:01:08.100
  • WE CAN FIRMLY ROOT OUR HOPE IN THE FACT THAT JESUS CHRIST
  • 00:01:08.110 --> 00:01:11.260
  • IS COMING BACK!
  • 00:01:11.270 --> 00:01:13.080
  • TODAY, WE'D LIKE TO SEND YOU AN EYE-OPENING,
  • 00:01:13.090 --> 00:01:15.150
  • NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN MESSAGE FROM DR. ROBERT JEFFRESS
  • 00:01:15.160 --> 00:01:18.230
  • ABOUT THE RAPTURE AND THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST.
  • 00:01:18.240 --> 00:01:21.170
  • IT WAS RECORDED ON LOCATION AT THE MOUNT OF OLIVES.
  • 00:01:21.180 --> 00:01:24.080
  • THE VERY PLACE WHERE JESUS IS GOING TO RETURN!
  • 00:01:24.090 --> 00:01:27.180

  • 00:01:29.100 --> 00:01:32.030
  • WHEN YOU GIVE A MINISTRY GIFT TO PATHWAY TO VICTORY.
  • 00:01:32.040 --> 00:01:34.290
  • "HE'S COMING BACK AGAIN TO RECLAIM WHAT BELONGS TO HIM.
  • 00:01:35.000 --> 00:01:39.260
  • AND THAT'S WHY THERE MUST BE A LITERAL SECOND COMING
  • 00:01:39.270 --> 00:01:43.210
  • SO THAT HE COULD RETURN TO THIS EARTH.
  • 00:01:43.220 --> 00:01:45.280
  • HE CAN WALK ACROSS THAT VALLEY.
  • 00:01:45.290 --> 00:01:47.230
  • HE CAN WALK THROUGH THOSE GATES AND BE RECOGNIZED
  • 00:01:47.240 --> 00:01:51.080
  • AS THE RULER OF ALL OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:01:51.090 --> 00:01:53.190
  • JESUS MESSIAH."
  • 00:01:53.200 --> 00:01:55.140
  • DISCOVER WHY YOU CAN LOOK FORWARD TO THE RETURN
  • 00:01:55.150 --> 00:01:58.050
  • OF CHRIST WITH HOPEFUL JOY AND ANTICIPATION.
  • 00:01:58.060 --> 00:02:00.270
  • REQUEST THE KING IS COMING
  • 00:02:00.280 --> 00:02:02.200
  • FROM PATHWAY TO VICTORY TODAY!
  • 00:02:02.210 --> 00:02:05.000
  • MUSIC
  • 00:02:05.010 --> 00:02:07.150
  • MUSIC
  • 00:02:07.160 --> 00:02:14.050
  • IT WAS THE GREAT PREACHER DR. R. A. TORREY
  • 00:02:14.060 --> 00:02:17.260
  • WHO ONCE SAID, "THE TRUTH OF THE SECOND COMING
  • 00:02:17.270 --> 00:02:21.070
  • OF JESUS CHRIST HAS TRANSFORMED MY IDEA OF LIFE.
  • 00:02:21.080 --> 00:02:26.200
  • IT HAS BROKEN THE STRANGLEHOLD THAT THIS
  • 00:02:26.210 --> 00:02:29.090
  • WORLD AND ITS AMBITION HAVE ON MY LIFE.
  • 00:02:29.100 --> 00:02:32.260
  • THE SECOND COMING HAS FILLED ME WITH A RADIANT
  • 00:02:32.270 --> 00:02:35.170
  • OPTIMISM; EVEN UNDER THE MOST DISCOURAGING
  • 00:02:35.180 --> 00:02:39.070
  • CIRCUMSTANCES."
  • 00:02:39.080 --> 00:02:41.150
  • WE HAVE SPENT THE FIRST PORTION OF THIS SERVICE
  • 00:02:41.160 --> 00:02:44.290
  • CELEBRATING THE FIRST COMING OF JESUS,
  • 00:02:45.000 --> 00:02:47.140
  • WHEN HE CAME TO BETHLEHEM TO BE THAT LAMB OF GOD WHO
  • 00:02:47.150 --> 00:02:50.230
  • TAKES AWAY THE SIN OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:02:50.240 --> 00:02:54.050
  • BUT NOW WE'RE GOING TO SPEND THE REMAINDER OF
  • 00:02:54.060 --> 00:02:56.080
  • THIS SERVICE ANTICIPATING THE SECOND COMING OF JESUS
  • 00:02:56.090 --> 00:03:00.220
  • CHRIST TO REDEEM AND REWARD THOSE WHO BELONG TO HIM.
  • 00:03:00.230 --> 00:03:06.010
  • THE TRUTH WE'RE GOING TO LOOK AT TODAY IS THE ONLY
  • 00:03:06.020 --> 00:03:10.190
  • HOPE FOR THOSE WHO ENDURE TRAGEDY;
  • 00:03:10.200 --> 00:03:14.010
  • THE ONLY HOPE IS THE ABSOLUTE CERTAINTY OF THE
  • 00:03:14.020 --> 00:03:18.200
  • RESURRECTION AND THE RETURN OF JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:03:18.210 --> 00:03:21.290
  • AND IT'S THAT HOPE THAT WE'RE GOING TO DISCOVER TODAY.
  • 00:03:22.000 --> 00:03:25.240
  • TODAY, I INVITE YOU TO TAKE YOUR BIBLES AND TURN
  • 00:03:25.250 --> 00:03:28.150
  • TO DANIEL 12.
  • 00:03:28.160 --> 00:03:30.210
  • YOU SEE, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,
  • 00:03:30.220 --> 00:03:32.100
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THERE IS A FINAL CHAPTER OF THIS
  • 00:03:32.110 --> 00:03:35.150
  • STORY THAT IS YET TO BE REVEALED,
  • 00:03:35.160 --> 00:03:38.050
  • AND IT IS THAT STORY THAT TRUTH OF THE SECOND COMING
  • 00:03:38.060 --> 00:03:41.220
  • OF JESUS CHRIST THAT IS OUR HOPE AND THE FOCUS OF
  • 00:03:41.230 --> 00:03:45.040
  • DANIEL 12.
  • 00:03:45.050 --> 00:03:46.280
  • NOW LET ME REMIND YOU WHERE WE ARE IN OUR STUDY
  • 00:03:46.290 --> 00:03:50.100
  • OF DANIEL'S.
  • 00:03:50.110 --> 00:03:51.160
  • REMEMBER IN DANIEL 11 AND 12 WE HAVE THIS FINAL
  • 00:03:51.170 --> 00:03:56.010
  • PROPHECY THAT GOD GAVE TO DANIEL ABOUT THE END OF TIMES.
  • 00:03:56.020 --> 00:03:59.260
  • AND I WANT YOU TO NOTICE, BEGINNING IN VERSE 1;
  • 00:03:59.270 --> 00:04:02.120
  • THE DELIVERANCE OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:04:02.130 --> 00:04:05.020
  • THE DELIVERANCE OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:04:05.030 --> 00:04:06.110
  • LOOK AT VERSE 1, "NOW AT THAT TIME," AT WHAT TIME?
  • 00:04:06.120 --> 00:04:11.020
  • AT THIS TIME OF TRIBULATION,
  • 00:04:11.030 --> 00:04:13.040
  • "AT THAT TIME MICHAEL, THE GREAT PRINCE WHO STANDS
  • 00:04:13.050 --> 00:04:17.090
  • GUARD OVER THE SONS OF YOUR PEOPLE, WILL ARISE."
  • 00:04:17.100 --> 00:04:20.290
  • REMEMBER MICHAEL?
  • 00:04:21.000 --> 00:04:21.240
  • HE IS THE ARCHANGEL.
  • 00:04:21.250 --> 00:04:23.060
  • HE IS THE ONE WHO IS GIVEN CHARGE OF DEFENDING ISRAEL.
  • 00:04:23.070 --> 00:04:27.100
  • NOW LISTEN TO ME, FOR EVERYTHING THAT WE SEE;
  • 00:04:27.110 --> 00:04:31.080
  • FOR EVERYTHING THAT IS VISIBLE,
  • 00:04:31.090 --> 00:04:34.070
  • THERE IS AN INVISIBLE REASON FOR IT.
  • 00:04:34.080 --> 00:04:37.210
  • AND WHAT YOU'RE GOING TO SEE IN DANIEL 12:1 IS
  • 00:04:37.220 --> 00:04:40.290
  • THE VISIBLE CONFLICT THAT OCCURS THE LAST 7 YEARS ON EARTH.
  • 00:04:41.000 --> 00:04:45.230
  • THE ONLY EXPLANATION FOR THE ANTICHRIST'S
  • 00:04:45.240 --> 00:04:48.150
  • PERSECUTION OF ISRAEL AND GOD'S PEOPLE IS BECAUSE HE
  • 00:04:48.160 --> 00:04:51.230
  • HAS BEEN FILLED AND CONTROLLED BY A DEMONIC FORCE.
  • 00:04:51.240 --> 00:04:55.110
  • AND THAT'S WHAT WE FIND IN CHAPTER 12:1,
  • 00:04:55.120 --> 00:04:58.050
  • "NOW AT THE TIME MICHAEL, THE GREAT PRINCE WHO
  • 00:04:58.060 --> 00:05:00.120
  • STANDS GUARD OVER THE SONS OF YOUR PEOPLE,
  • 00:05:00.130 --> 00:05:02.140
  • WILL ARISE."
  • 00:05:02.150 --> 00:05:03.070
  • TO DO WHAT?
  • 00:05:03.080 --> 00:05:04.090
  • TO CAST SATAN OUT HEAVEN, "AND THEN THERE WILL BE A
  • 00:05:04.100 --> 00:05:06.230
  • TIME OF DISTRESS SUCH AS NEVER OCCURRED SINCE THERE
  • 00:05:06.240 --> 00:05:10.040
  • WAS A NATION UNTIL THAT TIME;
  • 00:05:10.050 --> 00:05:12.110
  • AND," LOOK AT THIS, "AT THAT TIME YOUR PEOPLE,
  • 00:05:12.120 --> 00:05:16.080
  • EVERYONE WHO IS FOUND WRITTEN IN THE BOOK,
  • 00:05:16.090 --> 00:05:18.220
  • WILL BE RESCUED."
  • 00:05:18.230 --> 00:05:20.020
  • GOD WAS TALKING TO DANIEL.
  • 00:05:20.030 --> 00:05:21.200
  • HE SAID: YOUR PEOPLE WILL BE RESCUED.
  • 00:05:21.210 --> 00:05:23.230
  • WHO WERE DANIEL'S PEOPLE?
  • 00:05:23.240 --> 00:05:25.080
  • THE JEWS.
  • 00:05:25.090 --> 00:05:27.110
  • HE SAID, "AT THAT TIME THEY WILL BE RESCUED."
  • 00:05:27.120 --> 00:05:33.120
  • NOW, NOTICE IT DOESN'T SAY ALL THE JEWS
  • 00:05:33.130 --> 00:05:36.230
  • WILL BE RESCUED.
  • 00:05:36.240 --> 00:05:38.150
  • THERE IS NOTHING THAT SAYS THAT ALL ISRAEL,
  • 00:05:38.160 --> 00:05:42.030
  • PHYSICAL, NATURAL ISRAEL WILL BE SAVED.
  • 00:05:42.040 --> 00:05:44.200
  • WHEN PAUL SAYS THAT IN ROMANS 11:25,
  • 00:05:44.210 --> 00:05:47.080
  • "ALL ISRAEL" - YOU READ THE BOOK OF ROMANS,
  • 00:05:47.090 --> 00:05:49.130
  • HE DEFINES ISRAEL, THE TRUE ISRAEL AS BELIEVING
  • 00:05:49.140 --> 00:05:53.020
  • ISRAEL; ISRAEL THAT IS RELATED TO GOD NOT BY
  • 00:05:53.030 --> 00:05:56.130
  • PHYSICAL DESCENT, BY THEIR CONNECTION TO ABRAHAM;
  • 00:05:56.140 --> 00:05:59.130
  • BUT BY THEIR SPIRITUAL BELIEF,
  • 00:05:59.140 --> 00:06:01.190
  • BY THE FAITH THAT ABRAHAM HAD.
  • 00:06:01.200 --> 00:06:04.100
  • THE BIBLE SAYS IN THE LAST DAYS THAT THERE WILL BE
  • 00:06:04.110 --> 00:06:07.180
  • MANY ISRAELITES AS WELL AS GENTILES WHO WILL BE SAVED
  • 00:06:07.190 --> 00:06:10.100
  • BECAUSE OF THE WITNESS OF THE 144.000 JEWISH
  • 00:06:10.110 --> 00:06:13.190
  • BELIEVERS WHO, ACCORDING TO REVELATION 6,
  • 00:06:13.200 --> 00:06:16.000
  • WILL BE SAVED AND SEALED TO WITNESS FOR CHRIST
  • 00:06:16.010 --> 00:06:19.120
  • DURING THOSE FINAL 7 YEARS.
  • 00:06:19.130 --> 00:06:21.140
  • AND MANY ISRAELITES WILL BE SAVED DURING THAT TIME.
  • 00:06:21.150 --> 00:06:25.010
  • BUT NOTICE WHAT DANIEL SAID.
  • 00:06:25.020 --> 00:06:26.080
  • HE DIDN'T SAY EVERY ISRAELITE WILL BE SAVED,
  • 00:06:26.090 --> 00:06:28.290
  • HE SAID ONLY THOSE WHOSE NAME IS FOUND WRITTEN IN
  • 00:06:29.000 --> 00:06:33.080
  • THE BOOK OF LIFE WILL BE RESCUED.
  • 00:06:33.090 --> 00:06:36.020
  • THE BOOK OF LIFE CONTAINS THE NAME OF EVERY PERSON
  • 00:06:36.030 --> 00:06:39.280
  • WHO HAS BEEN SAVED; EVERY PERSON WHO WILL ESCAPE
  • 00:06:39.290 --> 00:06:43.030
  • GOD'S JUDGMENT AND WILL BE WELCOMED INTO HEAVEN.
  • 00:06:43.040 --> 00:06:46.130
  • THE BIBLE SAYS ONLY THE ONE WHO DOES THE WILL OF
  • 00:06:46.140 --> 00:06:49.140
  • MY FATHER IS TRULY SAVED.
  • 00:06:49.150 --> 00:06:52.220
  • DANIEL SAID THE ONLY ONES WHO WILL BE RESCUED ARE
  • 00:06:52.230 --> 00:06:55.280
  • THOSE WHOSE NAMES ARE IN THE BOOK.
  • 00:06:55.290 --> 00:06:58.190
  • NOW, LOOK IN VERSE 2 THE RESURRECTION OF THE
  • 00:06:58.200 --> 00:07:00.240
  • RIGHTEOUS AND THE UNRIGHTEOUS.
  • 00:07:00.250 --> 00:07:03.080
  • THE CONTEXT HERE IS THE GREAT TRIBULATION THAT HAS
  • 00:07:03.090 --> 00:07:06.030
  • NOW CONCLUDED; THE END OF THE TRIBULATION.
  • 00:07:06.040 --> 00:07:08.160
  • LOOK AT VERSE 2, "MANY OF THOSE WHO SLEEP IN THE
  • 00:07:08.170 --> 00:07:11.250
  • DUST OF THE GROUND WILL AWAKE,
  • 00:07:11.260 --> 00:07:13.290
  • THESE TO EVERLASTING LIFE, BUT THE OTHERS TO DISGRACE
  • 00:07:14.000 --> 00:07:18.100
  • AND EVERLASTING CONTEMPT."
  • 00:07:18.110 --> 00:07:20.150
  • DANIEL IS TALKING ABOUT TWO RESURRECTIONS HERE:
  • 00:07:20.160 --> 00:07:23.230
  • ONE TO EVERLASTING LIFE AND ONE TO
  • 00:07:23.240 --> 00:07:26.160
  • EVERLASTING JUDGMENT.
  • 00:07:26.170 --> 00:07:27.250
  • NOW LET ME SAY TWO THINGS ABOUT THAT VERSE.
  • 00:07:27.260 --> 00:07:29.230
  • FIRST OF ALL, UNDERLINE THAT WORD "SLEEP."
  • 00:07:29.240 --> 00:07:32.130
  • WHAT DOES HE MEAN: THOSE WHO ARE ASLEEP?
  • 00:07:32.140 --> 00:07:35.130
  • THE BIBLE IS VERY CLEAR THAT WHEN WE DIE,
  • 00:07:35.140 --> 00:07:38.130
  • WHETHER WE'RE A CHRISTIAN OR A NON-CHRISTIAN,
  • 00:07:38.140 --> 00:07:40.140
  • OUR SOULS DO NOT GO TO SLEEP.
  • 00:07:40.150 --> 00:07:42.210
  • WE GO IMMEDIATELY TO A PLACE OF BLESSING OR WE GO
  • 00:07:42.220 --> 00:07:46.130
  • TO A PLACE OF TORMENT.
  • 00:07:46.140 --> 00:07:48.210
  • WHAT GOES TO SLEEP IS OUR PHYSICAL BODY.
  • 00:07:48.220 --> 00:07:51.080
  • IN JOHN 11:11, JESUS TALKED ABOUT LAZARUS AND
  • 00:07:51.090 --> 00:07:53.250
  • SAID, "LAZARUS IS ASLEEP."
  • 00:07:53.260 --> 00:07:56.030
  • THAT IS, HIS BODY IS ASLEEP.
  • 00:07:56.040 --> 00:07:57.170
  • IN 1 THESSALONIANS 4:13, PAUL IN WRITING ABOUT THE
  • 00:07:57.180 --> 00:08:00.280
  • RAPTURE SAID, "FOR I DO NOT WANT YOU TO BE
  • 00:08:00.290 --> 00:08:03.080
  • IGNORANT, BRETHREN, ABOUT THOSE WHO HAVE FALLEN ASLEEP."
  • 00:08:03.090 --> 00:08:07.070
  • 2 CORINTHIANS 5:8 IS VERY CLEAR,
  • 00:08:07.080 --> 00:08:09.200
  • "FOR A CHRISTIAN TO BE ABSENT FROM THE BODY IS TO
  • 00:08:09.210 --> 00:08:12.260
  • BE IMMEDIATELY AT HOME WITH THE LORD."
  • 00:08:12.270 --> 00:08:15.170
  • WHEN A CHRISTIAN DIES, HIS SPIRIT GOES IMMEDIATELY
  • 00:08:15.180 --> 00:08:18.110
  • INTO PRESENCE OF JESUS, BUT HIS BODY IS PLACED IN
  • 00:08:18.120 --> 00:08:22.030
  • THE GRAVE, OR HIS BODY IS INCINERATED;
  • 00:08:22.040 --> 00:08:24.180
  • THE BODY FALLS ASLEEP AWAITING
  • 00:08:24.190 --> 00:08:26.220
  • A GREAT RESURRECTION.
  • 00:08:26.230 --> 00:08:28.090
  • THE SAME THING IS TRUE FOR THE UNBELIEVER.
  • 00:08:28.100 --> 00:08:30.090
  • REMEMBER WHEN THE RICH MAN DIED?
  • 00:08:30.100 --> 00:08:32.200
  • REMEMBER WHAT HAPPENED TO HIM IN LUKE 16?
  • 00:08:32.210 --> 00:08:35.010
  • HE IMMEDIATELY AWAKENED IN HADES.
  • 00:08:35.020 --> 00:08:36.280
  • HIS SPIRIT WAS IN HADES EVEN THOUGH HIS BODY HAD
  • 00:08:36.290 --> 00:08:39.180
  • BEEN BURIED.
  • 00:08:39.190 --> 00:08:40.170
  • BUT ONE DAY, DANIEL SAYS, OUR BODIES ARE
  • 00:08:40.180 --> 00:08:43.040
  • GOING TO BE RAISED.
  • 00:08:43.050 --> 00:08:44.170
  • THERE'S GOING TO BE SOME WHO WILL BE RAISED FOR
  • 00:08:44.180 --> 00:08:46.140
  • EVERLASTING BLESSING, AND OTHERS WHO WILL BE RAISED
  • 00:08:46.150 --> 00:08:49.180
  • FOR EVERLASTING JUDGMENT.
  • 00:08:49.190 --> 00:08:51.230
  • IN REVELATION 20:6, THE APOSTLE JOHN WRITES THESE
  • 00:08:51.240 --> 00:08:55.180
  • WORDS ABOUT THOSE TWO RESURRECTIONS.
  • 00:08:55.190 --> 00:08:57.250
  • HE SAID, "BLESSED AND HOLY IS THE ONE WHO HAS A PART
  • 00:08:57.260 --> 00:09:01.040
  • IN THE FIRST RESURRECTION; OVER THESE THE SECOND
  • 00:09:01.050 --> 00:09:04.130
  • DEATH HAS NO POWER, BUT THEY WILL BE PRIESTS OF
  • 00:09:04.140 --> 00:09:07.060
  • GOD AND OF CHRIST AND WILL REIGN WITH HIM FOR A
  • 00:09:07.070 --> 00:09:09.170
  • THOUSAND YEARS."
  • 00:09:09.180 --> 00:09:10.260
  • NOW, WE'VE TALKED ABOUT THIS EXTENSIVELY IN OUR
  • 00:09:10.270 --> 00:09:12.280
  • STUDY OF REVELATION AND 1 CORINTHIANS 15,
  • 00:09:12.290 --> 00:09:15.260
  • SO I JUST PUT THE CHART THERE TO HELP YOU
  • 00:09:15.270 --> 00:09:17.260
  • UNDERSTAND THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE FIRST
  • 00:09:17.270 --> 00:09:20.020
  • RESURRECTION AND THE SECOND RESURRECTION.
  • 00:09:20.030 --> 00:09:22.130
  • THE FIRST RESURRECTION IS A RESURRECTION
  • 00:09:22.140 --> 00:09:25.000
  • TO LIFE AND REWARD.
  • 00:09:25.010 --> 00:09:27.020
  • IT IS FOR BELIEVERS ONLY.
  • 00:09:27.030 --> 00:09:28.190
  • AND REMEMBER THAT FIRST RESURRECTION AS I SHOW YOU
  • 00:09:28.200 --> 00:09:31.140
  • ON THE CHART IS NOT SOMETHING THAT HAPPENS AT
  • 00:09:31.150 --> 00:09:33.270
  • ONE POINT IN TIME.
  • 00:09:33.280 --> 00:09:35.200
  • BUT THERE ARE DIFFERENT ASPECTS TO THE FIRST RESURRECTION.
  • 00:09:35.210 --> 00:09:38.150
  • THAT IS, BELIEVERS THROUGHOUT THE AGES GET
  • 00:09:38.160 --> 00:09:40.200
  • THEIR NEW BODIES; THEY'RE RAISED UP AT DIFFERENT
  • 00:09:40.210 --> 00:09:43.220
  • TIMES IN HISTORY.
  • 00:09:43.230 --> 00:09:44.280
  • FOR EXAMPLE, IN MATTHEW 27:52 WHEN JESUS WAS
  • 00:09:44.290 --> 00:09:48.140
  • RAISED FROM THE DEAD HE GOT HIS NEW BODY,
  • 00:09:48.150 --> 00:09:50.060
  • AND SO DID A FEW OTHERS WHO WERE RAISED FROM THE
  • 00:09:50.070 --> 00:09:52.240
  • DEAD AT THAT TIME.
  • 00:09:52.250 --> 00:09:53.280
  • THEY WERE A PART OF THE FIRST RESURRECTION.
  • 00:09:53.290 --> 00:09:55.260
  • 1 THESSALONIANS 4 SAYS THAT YOU AND I,
  • 00:09:55.270 --> 00:09:58.170
  • WHO ARE EITHER ALIVE WHEN THE RAPTURE OCCURS,
  • 00:09:58.180 --> 00:10:01.140
  • OR IF WE'VE DIED ALREADY AND OUR BODIES HAVE BEEN
  • 00:10:01.150 --> 00:10:04.000
  • BURIED, AT THAT TIME THE CHURCH IS GOING TO BE
  • 00:10:04.010 --> 00:10:06.250
  • RAISED AND RECEIVE THEIR RESURRECTION BODY.
  • 00:10:06.260 --> 00:10:09.290
  • AND THEN DANIEL 12:2 THAT WE'RE LOOKING AT TODAY
  • 00:10:10.000 --> 00:10:12.150
  • SAYS AFTER THE GREAT TRIBULATION OF THE SECOND
  • 00:10:12.160 --> 00:10:14.220
  • COMING OF CHRIST.
  • 00:10:14.230 --> 00:10:15.250
  • ANOTHER GROUP, THOSE TRIBULATION MARTYRS WHO
  • 00:10:15.260 --> 00:10:18.030
  • HAVE BEEN KILLED DURING THE TRIBULATION THEY WILL
  • 00:10:18.040 --> 00:10:20.110
  • RECEIVE THEIR NEW BODIES.
  • 00:10:20.120 --> 00:10:22.050
  • AND THEN THE FINAL PART OF THE FIRST RESURRECTION:
  • 00:10:22.060 --> 00:10:24.140
  • AFTER THE MILLENNIA.
  • 00:10:24.150 --> 00:10:25.180
  • DIFFERENT TIMES IN HISTORY,
  • 00:10:25.190 --> 00:10:27.050
  • BUT ALL OF US ARE A PART OF THAT RESURRECTION TO
  • 00:10:27.060 --> 00:10:29.230
  • LIFE AND TO ETERNAL REWARD.
  • 00:10:29.240 --> 00:10:32.050
  • BUT THERE IS A SECOND RESURRECTION.
  • 00:10:32.060 --> 00:10:34.160
  • IT'S DESCRIBED IN REVELATION 20.
  • 00:10:34.170 --> 00:10:36.220
  • IT COMES AT THE END OF THE MILLENNIUM.
  • 00:10:36.230 --> 00:10:38.110
  • WE CALL IT THE GREAT WHITE THRONE JUDGMENT.
  • 00:10:38.120 --> 00:10:40.270
  • THE BIBLE SAYS IN REVELATION 20: AT THAT
  • 00:10:40.280 --> 00:10:43.000
  • TIME DEATH AND HADES WILL GIVE UP THEIR DEAD.
  • 00:10:43.010 --> 00:10:46.240
  • THAT IS, EVERY UNBELIEVER SINCE THE TIME OF ADAM
  • 00:10:46.250 --> 00:10:49.180
  • WILL BE RAISED UP FOR HIS FINAL JUDGMENT AT THE
  • 00:10:49.190 --> 00:10:52.140
  • GREAT WHITE THRONE.
  • 00:10:52.150 --> 00:10:53.260
  • AND THE BIBLE SAYS ON THAT DAY THE BOOKS WERE OPENED
  • 00:10:53.270 --> 00:10:56.240
  • AND THE BOOK WAS OPENED, AND IF ANY MAN'S NAME WAS
  • 00:10:56.250 --> 00:10:59.100
  • NOT FOUND WRITTEN IN THE BOOK OF LIFE HE WAS CAST
  • 00:10:59.110 --> 00:11:02.270
  • INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE AND TORMENTED THERE DAY AND
  • 00:11:02.280 --> 00:11:06.070
  • NIGHT FOREVER AND EVER.
  • 00:11:06.080 --> 00:11:08.230
  • DANIEL SAID THERE ARE TWO RESURRECTIONS COMING.
  • 00:11:08.240 --> 00:11:11.260
  • THERE IS A RESURRECTION TO EVERLASTING LIFE,
  • 00:11:11.270 --> 00:11:14.140
  • AND THERE IS A RESURRECTION FOR
  • 00:11:14.150 --> 00:11:16.010
  • EVERLASTING CONTEMPT AND DISGRACE.
  • 00:11:16.020 --> 00:11:19.120
  • NOW, HE BELIEVED IN THE RESURRECTION OF THE
  • 00:11:19.130 --> 00:11:22.120
  • RIGHTEOUS, BUT HE ALSO BELIEVED IN THE FUTURE
  • 00:11:22.130 --> 00:11:25.100
  • REWARD OF THE RIGHTEOUS.
  • 00:11:25.110 --> 00:11:27.100
  • LOOK AT VERSE 3, "THOSE WHO HAVE INSIGHT WILL
  • 00:11:27.110 --> 00:11:31.020
  • SHINE BRIGHTLY LIKE THE BRIGHTNESS OF THE EXPANSE
  • 00:11:31.030 --> 00:11:34.060
  • OF HEAVEN, AND THOSE WHO LEAD THE MANY TO
  • 00:11:34.070 --> 00:11:37.120
  • RIGHTEOUSNESS, LIKE THE MANY STARS FOREVER AND EVER."
  • 00:11:37.130 --> 00:11:42.140
  • THOSE WHO ARE WISE ENOUGH, WHO HAVE INSIGHT TO IGNORE
  • 00:11:42.150 --> 00:11:46.240
  • THE DECEPTION OF SATAN AND TO PUT THEIR FAITH IN
  • 00:11:46.250 --> 00:11:50.040
  • JESUS CHRIST BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE,
  • 00:11:50.050 --> 00:11:52.190
  • THEY WILL SHINE BRIGHTLY FOR ALL ETERNITY,
  • 00:11:52.200 --> 00:11:55.050
  • LIKE THE BRIGHTNESS OF HEAVEN.
  • 00:11:55.060 --> 00:11:56.220
  • AND THEN NOTICE VERSE 3 ALSO SAYS THOSE WHO LEAD
  • 00:11:56.230 --> 00:11:59.180
  • MANY TO RIGHTEOUSNESS.
  • 00:11:59.190 --> 00:12:02.000
  • THOSE WHO LEAD OTHERS TO RIGHTEOUSNESS,
  • 00:12:02.010 --> 00:12:04.150
  • TO FAITH IN CHRIST, THEY WILL BE LIKE THE STARS
  • 00:12:04.160 --> 00:12:07.270
  • FOREVER AND EVER.
  • 00:12:07.280 --> 00:12:10.060
  • YOU KNOW, TODAY, HOW DO WE MEASURE SOMEBODY'S SUCCESS?
  • 00:12:10.070 --> 00:12:13.260
  • WE MEASURE SUCCESS BY NET WORTH;
  • 00:12:13.270 --> 00:12:16.170
  • BY APPEARANCE; BY THE POSITION THAT THEY HOLD;
  • 00:12:16.180 --> 00:12:20.220
  • ALL OF THAT IS NOT GOING TO MATTER FOR ANYTHING THE
  • 00:12:20.230 --> 00:12:24.060
  • MOMENT YOU DIE.
  • 00:12:24.070 --> 00:12:25.250
  • THE ONLY THING THAT IS GOING TO MATTER IS WHAT
  • 00:12:25.260 --> 00:12:28.200
  • YOU'VE DONE FOR JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:12:28.210 --> 00:12:30.210
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THOSE WHO ARE WISE ENOUGH TO INVEST
  • 00:12:30.220 --> 00:12:34.010
  • THEIR LIVES IN LEADING PEOPLE TO RIGHTEOUSNESS,
  • 00:12:34.020 --> 00:12:37.040
  • THEY WILL BE LIKE THE STARS THAT SHINE FOREVER.
  • 00:12:37.050 --> 00:12:40.230
  • SOME OF YOU RIGHT NOW ARE INVESTING YOUR TIME;
  • 00:12:40.240 --> 00:12:44.170
  • YOU'RE INVESTING YOUR FINANCIAL RESOURCES IN
  • 00:12:44.180 --> 00:12:47.240
  • DOING JUST THAT: IN LEADING PEOPLE TO
  • 00:12:47.250 --> 00:12:50.070
  • RIGHTEOUSNESS.
  • 00:12:50.080 --> 00:12:51.080
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THERE IS A GREAT REWARD THAT AWAITS
  • 00:12:51.090 --> 00:12:53.280
  • YOU ONE DAY.
  • 00:12:53.290 --> 00:12:55.040
  • REMEMBER PROVERBS 11:30, "THE ONE WHO WINS SOULS IS WISE."
  • 00:12:55.050 --> 00:13:00.060
  • NOW LOOK AT VERSE 4 AT THE SEALING OF THE VISION,
  • 00:13:00.070 --> 00:13:03.160
  • "BUT AS FOR YOU, DANIEL, CONCEAL THESE WORDS AND
  • 00:13:03.170 --> 00:13:06.190
  • SEAL UP THE BOOK UNTIL THE END OF TIME;
  • 00:13:06.200 --> 00:13:09.090
  • FOR MANY WILL GO BACK AND FORTH,
  • 00:13:09.100 --> 00:13:10.260
  • AND KNOWLEDGE WILL INCREASE."
  • 00:13:10.270 --> 00:13:13.180
  • GOD TELLS DANIEL TO SEAL UP THE BOOK;
  • 00:13:13.190 --> 00:13:16.020
  • SEAL UP THESE PROPHECIES.
  • 00:13:16.030 --> 00:13:17.270
  • HE'S NOT SAYING THAT THEY CAN'T BE READ UNTIL THE
  • 00:13:17.280 --> 00:13:20.060
  • END OF TIME.
  • 00:13:20.070 --> 00:13:21.080
  • BUT WHAT HE IS SAYING IS THERE WILL BE A LACK OF
  • 00:13:21.090 --> 00:13:24.050
  • UNDERSTANDING UNTIL THE END OF TIME OF EXACTLY
  • 00:13:24.060 --> 00:13:28.090
  • WHAT DANIEL WAS TALKING ABOUT.
  • 00:13:28.100 --> 00:13:29.190
  • YOU SEE, EVEN DANIEL DIDN'T HAVE A FULL
  • 00:13:29.200 --> 00:13:31.180
  • UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN.
  • 00:13:31.190 --> 00:13:34.100
  • THOSE OF US WHO LIVE 2.500 YEARS AFTER DANIEL,
  • 00:13:34.110 --> 00:13:37.020
  • WE HAVE GREATER INSIGHT THAN DANIEL DID,
  • 00:13:37.030 --> 00:13:39.110
  • BECAUSE WE CAN LOOK BACK IN HISTORY AND WE CAN SEE
  • 00:13:39.120 --> 00:13:42.180
  • 483 OF THESE 490 YEARS HAVE ALREADY BEEN
  • 00:13:42.190 --> 00:13:45.260
  • FULFILLED JUST AS GOD PREDICTED.
  • 00:13:45.270 --> 00:13:47.260
  • WE'RE LOOKING FORWARD TO THAT FINAL 7 YEARS AND THE
  • 00:13:47.270 --> 00:13:50.070
  • RETURN OF CHRIST.
  • 00:13:50.080 --> 00:13:51.120
  • BUT EVEN THOUGH WE DON'T HAVE A FULL UNDERSTANDING
  • 00:13:51.130 --> 00:13:54.110
  • OF EVERYTHING, I HAVE HEARD MANY INTERPRETATIONS
  • 00:13:54.120 --> 00:13:57.180
  • OF VERSE 4.
  • 00:13:57.190 --> 00:13:58.200
  • WHAT DOES IT MEAN THAT AT THE END OF TIME MANY WILL
  • 00:13:58.210 --> 00:14:01.200
  • GO BACK AND FORTH, AND KNOWLEDGE WILL INCREASE?
  • 00:14:01.210 --> 00:14:05.160
  • I'VE HEARD SOME PEOPLE SPECULATE THAT WHEN IT
  • 00:14:05.170 --> 00:14:07.170
  • SAYS MANY WILL GO BACK AND FORTH - IT'S TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:14:07.180 --> 00:14:11.250
  • THE INCREASE IN TRAVEL AT THE END TIMES;
  • 00:14:11.260 --> 00:14:14.260
  • THE INCREASE IN THE VELOCITY OF TRAVEL.
  • 00:14:14.270 --> 00:14:17.240
  • ISAAC NEWTON WHO LIVED IN THE 17TH CENTURY,
  • 00:14:17.250 --> 00:14:21.070
  • WHEN HE READ THESE VERSES - YOU KNOW WHAT HIS
  • 00:14:21.080 --> 00:14:22.280
  • INTERPRETATION WAS?
  • 00:14:22.290 --> 00:14:24.070
  • HIS INTERPRETATION WAS THIS INCLUDES,
  • 00:14:24.080 --> 00:14:26.090
  • THIS IS DESCRIBING THE VELOCITY OF TRAVEL AT THE
  • 00:14:26.100 --> 00:14:29.180
  • END TIME.
  • 00:14:29.190 --> 00:14:30.170
  • HE SAID AT THE END TIME I'M PREDICTING MANKIND
  • 00:14:30.180 --> 00:14:35.120
  • WILL BE ABLE TO TRAVEL AT SPEEDS UP TO 50 MILES AN HOUR.
  • 00:14:35.130 --> 00:14:43.110
  • WHEN THE FRENCH SKEPTIC VOLTAIRE HEARD THAT,
  • 00:14:43.120 --> 00:14:45.270
  • YOU KNOW WHAT HE SAID?
  • 00:14:45.280 --> 00:14:47.050
  • HE SAID: THAT'S WHY YOU CAN'T TRUST CHRISTIANITY
  • 00:14:47.060 --> 00:14:50.070
  • AND THE BIBLE - TRAVELING AT 50 MILES AN HOUR -
  • 00:14:50.080 --> 00:14:54.130
  • PREPOSTEROUS!
  • 00:14:54.140 --> 00:14:55.110
  • THAT'S HOW SOME PEOPLE INTERPRET THAT.
  • 00:14:55.120 --> 00:14:58.000
  • WHAT ABOUT THIS INCREASE OF KNOWLEDGE THAT WILL
  • 00:14:58.010 --> 00:15:00.150
  • INCREASE?
  • 00:15:00.160 --> 00:15:01.150
  • SOME PEOPLE SAY: WELL, THAT MEANS THAT AT THE END
  • 00:15:01.160 --> 00:15:03.070
  • TIMES THERE WILL BE EXPLOSIVE INCREASE IN THE
  • 00:15:03.080 --> 00:15:07.120
  • BODY OF KNOWLEDGE.
  • 00:15:07.130 --> 00:15:08.250
  • AND CERTAINLY WE HAVE SEEN THAT HAPPEN.
  • 00:15:08.260 --> 00:15:11.080
  • JUST ASSUME, LIKE MANY PEOPLE DO THAT HUMAN
  • 00:15:11.090 --> 00:15:15.010
  • CIVILIZATION BEGAN IN 4500 B.C.
  • 00:15:15.020 --> 00:15:18.140
  • - NOT MAN BEGAN IN 4500 B.C.,
  • 00:15:18.150 --> 00:15:21.000
  • BUT HUMAN CIVILIZATION BEGAN IN 4500 B.C.
  • 00:15:21.010 --> 00:15:24.220
  • NOW THINK ABOUT BETWEEN THAT TIME,
  • 00:15:24.230 --> 00:15:27.220
  • YOU KNOW WHEN THEY WERE SCRAPING AROUND AND
  • 00:15:27.230 --> 00:15:29.230
  • FINALLY MANUFACTURED A WHEEL;
  • 00:15:29.240 --> 00:15:31.230
  • THINK ABOUT THAT TIME UNTIL RIGHT NOW THE
  • 00:15:31.240 --> 00:15:34.270
  • DISCOVERY OF THE MICROCHIP AND EVERYTHING BEYOND THE
  • 00:15:34.280 --> 00:15:37.140
  • MICROCHIP; THINK ABOUT THE HUGE BODY OF KNOWLEDGE
  • 00:15:37.150 --> 00:15:42.070
  • THAT HAS BEEN ACQUIRED SINCE 4500 B.C.
  • 00:15:42.080 --> 00:15:45.210
  • AND NOW.
  • 00:15:45.220 --> 00:15:46.180
  • NOW PICTURE IT IN YOUR MIND THAT VOLUME OF
  • 00:15:46.190 --> 00:15:48.190
  • KNOWLEDGE.
  • 00:15:48.200 --> 00:15:49.090
  • I WAS READING ABOUT GENOMES,
  • 00:15:49.100 --> 00:15:51.010
  • AND GENETIC MAPPING, AND EVERYTHING,
  • 00:15:51.020 --> 00:15:53.110
  • YESTERDAY, AND IT'S JUST AMAZING WHAT THEY'RE ABLE
  • 00:15:53.120 --> 00:15:55.170
  • TO DO.
  • 00:15:55.180 --> 00:15:56.150
  • NOW TAKE THIS BODY OF KNOWLEDGE THAT WE HAVE
  • 00:15:56.160 --> 00:15:58.150
  • RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:15:58.160 --> 00:15:59.170
  • IF THAT BODY OF KNOWLEDGE WERE TO INCREASE AT ONLY
  • 00:15:59.180 --> 00:16:02.280
  • 10% A YEAR, AND THAT'S VERY CONSERVATIVE.
  • 00:16:02.290 --> 00:16:07.090
  • IF THE BODY OF KNOWLEDGE WE HAVE RIGHT NOW WERE TO
  • 00:16:07.100 --> 00:16:09.170
  • INCREASE BY ONLY 10% A YEAR;
  • 00:16:09.180 --> 00:16:12.030
  • DO YOU REALIZE THAT BECAUSE OF THE MAGIC OF
  • 00:16:12.040 --> 00:16:14.010
  • COMPOUNDING, THIS BODY OF KNOWLEDGE WE HAVE RIGHT
  • 00:16:14.020 --> 00:16:17.060
  • NOW BY THE YEAR OF 2045 WILL HAVE DOUBLED 4.86 TIMES?
  • 00:16:17.070 --> 00:16:25.190
  • WHAT WE KNOW RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:16:25.200 --> 00:16:27.150
  • THE TECHNOLOGY WE HAVE RIGHT NOW DOUBLING ALMOST
  • 00:16:27.160 --> 00:16:30.280
  • 5 TIMES BETWEEN NOW AND 2045.
  • 00:16:30.290 --> 00:16:36.110
  • IS THAT WHAT HE'S TALKING ABOUT HERE - KNOWLEDGE
  • 00:16:36.120 --> 00:16:38.110
  • WILL INCREASE?
  • 00:16:38.120 --> 00:16:40.040
  • I DON'T THINK SO.
  • 00:16:40.050 --> 00:16:41.040
  • I THINK, SIMPLY, WHAT DANIEL IS SAYING IS THIS:
  • 00:16:41.050 --> 00:16:43.220
  • IN THE END TIMES; WHEN WE GET CLOSE TO THE END;
  • 00:16:43.230 --> 00:16:46.000
  • THE SIGNS START APPEARING, PEOPLE ARE GOING TO BE
  • 00:16:46.010 --> 00:16:48.140
  • SCRAMBLING BACK AND FORTH LOOKING FOR ANSWERS;
  • 00:16:48.150 --> 00:16:51.190
  • LOOKING FOR EXPLANATIONS WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THE
  • 00:16:51.200 --> 00:16:53.260
  • WORLD; AND THERE WILL BE AN INCREASE OF
  • 00:16:53.270 --> 00:16:56.050
  • UNDERSTANDING BECAUSE THEY WILL REMEMBER THE BOOK OF DANIEL.
  • 00:16:56.060 --> 00:16:59.190
  • AND THE BOOK OF DANIEL WILL GIVE THEM KNOWLEDGE.
  • 00:16:59.200 --> 00:17:01.290
  • THEIR KNOWLEDGE WILL INCREASE.
  • 00:17:02.000 --> 00:17:04.240
  • NOW LOOK IN VERSES 5-9, "THEN I,
  • 00:17:04.250 --> 00:17:06.260
  • DANIEL, LOOKED AND BEHOLD, TWO OTHERS WERE STANDING,
  • 00:17:06.270 --> 00:17:09.260
  • ONE ON THIS BANK OF THE RIVER AND THE OTHER ON
  • 00:17:09.270 --> 00:17:12.070
  • THAT BANK OF THE RIVER.
  • 00:17:12.080 --> 00:17:13.150
  • AND ONE OF THOSE ANGELS SAID TO THE MAN DRESSED IN
  • 00:17:13.160 --> 00:17:17.020
  • LINEN, WHO WAS ABOVE THE WATERS OF THE RIVER," WHO
  • 00:17:17.030 --> 00:17:19.290
  • IS THAT MAN; THAT GIANT MAN STANDING ABOVE THE WATERS?
  • 00:17:20.000 --> 00:17:23.290
  • HE'S THE SAME MAN DRESSED IN LINEN IN CHAPTER 10:5-6.
  • 00:17:24.000 --> 00:17:27.170
  • I THINK THIS IS THE LORD JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF,
  • 00:17:27.180 --> 00:17:30.210
  • "THE ONE ANGEL SAID TO THE MAN," TO THE LORD JESUS,
  • 00:17:30.220 --> 00:17:33.100
  • "HOW LONG WILL IT BE UNTIL THE END OF THESE WONDERS?"
  • 00:17:33.110 --> 00:17:36.270
  • AND VERSE 7, "I HEARD THE MAN DRESSED IN LINEN,
  • 00:17:36.280 --> 00:17:39.020
  • WHO WAS ABOVE THE WATERS OF THE RIVER,
  • 00:17:39.030 --> 00:17:40.240
  • AND HE RAISED HIS RIGHT HAND AND HIS LEFT TOWARD
  • 00:17:40.250 --> 00:17:42.260
  • HEAVEN, AND SWORE BY HIM," THAT IS GOD,
  • 00:17:42.270 --> 00:17:45.090
  • "WHO LIVES FOREVER THAT IT WOULD BE FOR A TIME,
  • 00:17:45.100 --> 00:17:48.040
  • TIMES, AND HALF A TIME."
  • 00:17:48.050 --> 00:17:49.200
  • THERE YOU HAVE IT: 1 YEAR PLUS 2 YEARS PLUS HALF A YEAR.
  • 00:17:49.210 --> 00:17:52.250
  • IT WILL BE THREE AND A HALF YEARS UNTIL THESE
  • 00:17:52.260 --> 00:17:55.160
  • THINGS END.
  • 00:17:55.170 --> 00:17:56.080
  • NOW LOOK, VERSES 8-9, "AS FOR ME,
  • 00:17:56.090 --> 00:17:58.210
  • I HEARD BUT COULD NOT UNDERSTAND;
  • 00:17:58.220 --> 00:18:00.250
  • SO I SAID, 'MY LORD, WHAT WILL BE THE OUTCOME OF
  • 00:18:00.260 --> 00:18:03.160
  • THESE EVENTS?' AND THE LORD SAID,
  • 00:18:03.170 --> 00:18:05.250
  • 'GO YOUR WAY, DANIEL, FOR THESE WORDS ARE CONCEALED
  • 00:18:05.260 --> 00:18:08.200
  • AND SEALED UP UNTIL THE END TIME.'" BUT THE LORD
  • 00:18:08.210 --> 00:18:12.090
  • DID REVEAL ONE FINAL TRUTH TO DANIEL.
  • 00:18:12.100 --> 00:18:14.150
  • LOOK AT VERSE 11, "FROM THE TIME THAT THE REGULAR
  • 00:18:14.160 --> 00:18:18.210
  • SACRIFICE IS ABOLISHED AND THE ABOMINATION OF
  • 00:18:18.220 --> 00:18:21.210
  • DESOLATION IS SET UP, THERE WILL BE 1.290 DAYS."
  • 00:18:21.220 --> 00:18:25.040
  • HE IS MEASURING THE TIME BETWEEN THE DESECRATION OF
  • 00:18:25.050 --> 00:18:27.200
  • THE TEMPLE AND THE RETURN OF JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:18:27.210 --> 00:18:30.070
  • NOW YOU SAY: WAIT A MINUTE,
  • 00:18:30.080 --> 00:18:31.080
  • 1.290 DAYS?
  • 00:18:31.090 --> 00:18:34.030
  • I THOUGHT IT WAS 1.260 DAYS;
  • 00:18:34.040 --> 00:18:36.150
  • THINK ABOUT IT.
  • 00:18:36.160 --> 00:18:37.170
  • WHEN JESUS CHRIST RETURNS; BEFORE HE BEGINS HIS REIGN
  • 00:18:37.180 --> 00:18:41.090
  • ON EARTH, IN WHICH ONLY BELIEVERS,
  • 00:18:41.100 --> 00:18:43.220
  • ONLY CHRISTIANS CAN PARTICIPATE THERE HAS TO
  • 00:18:43.230 --> 00:18:46.020
  • BE A SERIES OF JUDGMENTS; THE SHEEP AND THE GOATS;
  • 00:18:46.030 --> 00:18:48.190
  • THE OTHER JUDGMENTS.
  • 00:18:48.200 --> 00:18:49.230
  • I BELIEVE, VERY POSSIBLY THAT THESE ARE THE 30 DAYS
  • 00:18:49.240 --> 00:18:52.080
  • NEEDED BEFORE THE START OF THE MILLENNIUM,
  • 00:18:52.090 --> 00:18:54.220
  • TO HAVE THE JUDGMENTS TAKE PLACE SO THAT ONLY THE
  • 00:18:54.230 --> 00:18:57.120
  • RIGHTEOUS ENTER INTO THE MILLENNIAL BLESSING.
  • 00:18:57.130 --> 00:19:00.080
  • NOW LOOK AT VERSE 12, "HOW BLESSED IS HE WHO KEEPS
  • 00:19:00.090 --> 00:19:03.240
  • WAITING AND ATTAINS TO THE 1.335 DAYS!"
  • 00:19:03.250 --> 00:19:08.190
  • WAIT A MINUTE!
  • 00:19:08.200 --> 00:19:09.170
  • YOU JUST SAID 1.290 DAYS AND NOW HE'S ADDING
  • 00:19:09.180 --> 00:19:11.210
  • ANOTHER 45 DAYS, WHAT IS ALL THAT ABOUT?
  • 00:19:11.220 --> 00:19:13.280
  • NOW THINK ABOUT IT; THE MILLENNIUM IS THE TIME
  • 00:19:13.290 --> 00:19:16.120
  • THAT CHRIST WILL RULE FROM JERUSALEM,
  • 00:19:16.130 --> 00:19:18.200
  • AND YOU AND I WILL BE RULING WITH HIM.
  • 00:19:18.210 --> 00:19:20.290
  • WE WILL HAVE VARIOUS RESPONSIBILITIES IN THAT
  • 00:19:21.000 --> 00:19:23.160
  • GOVERNMENT.
  • 00:19:23.170 --> 00:19:24.170
  • NOW, DON'T YOU THINK IT MIGHT TAKE A LITTLE WHILE
  • 00:19:24.180 --> 00:19:26.200
  • TO GET THAT GOVERNMENT SET UP?
  • 00:19:26.210 --> 00:19:28.160
  • NOW, GOVERNMENT MOVES SLOWLY,
  • 00:19:28.170 --> 00:19:30.050
  • WE ALL KNOW THAT, DOESN'T IT?
  • 00:19:30.060 --> 00:19:32.000
  • ONCE THE UNBELIEVERS GO, IT'LL MOVE A LOT QUICKER,
  • 00:19:32.010 --> 00:19:34.170
  • BUT IT'S STILL GOING TO TAKE SOME TIME TO ORGANIZE
  • 00:19:34.180 --> 00:19:37.200
  • THE FINAL WORLD GOVERNMENT,
  • 00:19:37.210 --> 00:19:39.100
  • AND VERY POSSIBLY THOSE EXTRA 45 DAYS ARE TO DO THAT.
  • 00:19:39.110 --> 00:19:43.080
  • THAT'S NOT WHAT WE NEED TO CONCERN OURSELVES WITH.
  • 00:19:43.090 --> 00:19:46.030
  • LOOK AT VERSE 13, THIS IS WHAT IS IMPORTANT FOR
  • 00:19:46.040 --> 00:19:48.270
  • DANIEL, AND FOR YOU, AND ME TO UNDERSTAND.
  • 00:19:48.280 --> 00:19:52.160
  • GOD SAID TO DANIEL, "BUT AS FOR YOU,
  • 00:19:52.170 --> 00:19:55.290
  • GO YOUR WAY TO THE END; THEN YOU WILL ENTER INTO
  • 00:19:56.000 --> 00:19:59.050
  • REST AND RISE AGAIN FOR YOUR ALLOTTED PORTION AT
  • 00:19:59.060 --> 00:20:02.260
  • THE END OF THE AGE."
  • 00:20:02.270 --> 00:20:04.100
  • HE SAID: DANIEL, DON'T WORRY ABOUT ALL THESE
  • 00:20:04.110 --> 00:20:05.260
  • DETAILS.
  • 00:20:05.270 --> 00:20:07.040
  • YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE FOR ME; DON'T FEAR DEATH;
  • 00:20:07.050 --> 00:20:11.200
  • AND I PROMISE YOU WHEN YOUR BODY GOES TO SLEEP
  • 00:20:11.210 --> 00:20:14.000
  • ONE DAY I WON'T FORGET YOU.
  • 00:20:14.010 --> 00:20:16.070
  • I WILL COME AND RAISE YOU FROM THE DEAD.
  • 00:20:16.080 --> 00:20:19.250
  • AND GOD SAYS THE SAME THING TO YOU AND TO ME.
  • 00:20:19.260 --> 00:20:24.050
  • IN JOHN 6:40 JESUS SAID, "FOR THIS IS THE WILL OF
  • 00:20:24.060 --> 00:20:28.190
  • HIM WHO SENT ME, THAT EVERYONE WHO BEHOLDS THE
  • 00:20:28.200 --> 00:20:32.100
  • SON AND BELIEVES IN HIM HAS ETERNAL LIFE,
  • 00:20:32.110 --> 00:20:36.200
  • AND I MYSELF WILL RAISE HIM UP IN THE LATTER DAY."
  • 00:20:36.210 --> 00:20:40.100
  • FOR YEARS THE PHILIPPINES LIVED UNDER THE OPPRESSIVE
  • 00:20:43.050 --> 00:20:48.120
  • OCCUPATION OF THE JAPANESE,
  • 00:20:48.130 --> 00:20:51.200
  • BUT AFTER YEARS OF OCCUPATION THE PHILIPPINES
  • 00:20:51.210 --> 00:20:55.060
  • WERE LIBERATED FROM THE JAPANESE BY GENERAL
  • 00:20:55.070 --> 00:20:57.170
  • DOUGLAS MACARTHUR AND HIS ALLIED FORCES.
  • 00:20:57.180 --> 00:21:00.070
  • SOME OF YOU WERE ALIVE AND REMEMBER WHEN THAT
  • 00:21:00.080 --> 00:21:02.170
  • HAPPENED.
  • 00:21:02.180 --> 00:21:03.270
  • WHEN GENERAL MACARTHUR RETURNED TO THE
  • 00:21:03.280 --> 00:21:05.160
  • PHILIPPINES, HE ADDRESSED THE MILLIONS OF PHILIPPINE
  • 00:21:05.170 --> 00:21:08.240
  • CITIZENS ON THE RADIO; AND THIS IS WHAT HE SAID ON
  • 00:21:08.250 --> 00:21:11.290
  • OCTOBER 20, 1944.
  • 00:21:12.000 --> 00:21:15.060
  • "THIS IS THE VOICE OF FREEDOM,
  • 00:21:15.070 --> 00:21:17.050
  • GENERAL MACARTHUR SPEAKING,
  • 00:21:17.060 --> 00:21:19.110
  • PEOPLE OF THE PHILIPPINES, I HAVE RETURNED BY THE
  • 00:21:19.120 --> 00:21:23.160
  • GRACE OF ALMIGHTY GOD OUR FORCES STAND ON PHILIPPINE SOIL.

  • RALLY TO ME."
  • 00:21:31.030 --> 00:21:34.200
  • LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE BIBLE PROMISES THAT ONE
  • 00:21:34.210 --> 00:21:37.040
  • DAY WHEN THE WORLD SITUATION SEEMS THE

  • ABSOLUTE, MOST HOPELESS IT HAS EVER SEEMED - SUDDENLY

  • WITHOUT WARNING, THE SKIES ARE GOING TO PART,
  • 00:21:43.050 --> 00:21:46.140
  • THE TRUMPET IS GOING TO SOUND,
  • 00:21:46.150 --> 00:21:48.150
  • THE LORD JESUS CHRIST OUR COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF IS
  • 00:21:48.160 --> 00:21:51.080
  • GOING TO APPEAR AND HE IS GOING TO CRY OUT:
  • 00:21:51.090 --> 00:21:53.260
  • I HAVE RETURNED!
  • 00:21:53.270 --> 00:21:56.160
  • THE HOUR OF YOUR REDEMPTION IS HERE!

  • ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO THAT DAY LIKE I AM?
  • 00:22:02.160 --> 00:22:05.020
  • THAT IS THE HOPE, THE ONLY HOPE FOR OUR WORLD.

  • I HOPE YOU CAN SAY WITH ABSOLUTE CERTAINTY THAT

  • OR YOU DIE BEFORE HE COMES,
  • 00:22:40.040 --> 00:22:42.080
